Adopt a Micro Pig
Find out everything you need to know about adopting a micro pig from us!
Adopting a Micro Pig
We at Kew Little Pigs understand that many people cannot keep a pet pig in their own homes due to their busy lives, commitments and lack of space.
This enables people to adopt a pig without having the responsibility of having a pig in their own home. This is a very unique service that lets you be a proud owner of a micro pig. You will be able to choose from their age, gender, colour and personality as we have a variety of pigs to offer.
If you are unable to attend your adoption appointment throughout the year or you live overseas, you can receive video’s and a poster instead.

Micro Pigs To Adopt
Kew has been with us since she was born and we are now proud to say that she is a lovely mother to all of the piglets she’s had and is now even a grandmother. She loves to have her belly rubbed, and gets our attention by tipping her water over! She is very friendly and sits on demand. She is one of the oldest on the farm, having been born in 2011. She loves to have the attention and being brushed as she is a princess. Kew, along with her sister Stephanie, was Moonpig mascot for a year when she was younger, visiting their offices every month as a treat for the staff. Kew has also been on TV before on the Live with Gabby show, as well as other national shows. She can also be seen on our promotional video on our youtube channel.
Gizmo is quite shy in comparison to Boe, his sister, but he still loves the attention! He was born in 2012 and is the cute one that everyone loves, so he loves to be stroked and fed (especially fed!). He is very chilled out and loves to just route around his pen, or you’ll usually find him asleep somewhere – he’s very lazy! But when Boe starts to cause trouble, he is the first one to go along with her, it’s still clear they love each other after all these years! Gizmo is a very clever pig and his party trick is to sit on demand, he loves to do this as he knows he is going to get a treat after, although sometimes he gets too greedy and jumps up!
Boe has a funny and very sly personality. She has a dogs characteristics and is not afraid to jump up on your lap if she thinks there is food around. Boe was born in 2012 and spends her day creating mayhem around the farm, by demanding food all day long and getting the others to join in, she is definitely the leader. She loves to have her belly rubbed and actually keeps herself very clean considering she is white and quite a digger! She loves to have the attention and if there are any visitors to the farm she will sulk if they do not spend all of their time with her, so it’s safe to say she is quite a diva! Boe is very clever and shows off a lot. Boe’s smiley face makes us glad to come into the office every morning, as she makes us smile with her, even when she is creating mayhem!
Dexter is our very cute boar, born in 2012. He has done parties and very big events with us. He is still very small for his age, standing at only 14 inches from shoulder to trotter. He makes the most noise out of all of our male pigs and loves to follow Gizmo around and copy him! He is one of our well behaved pigs, we let him walk around in the farm and he comes in the office with us sometimes and he’s even done filming all over London! Dexter is everyone’s favourite as he is a funny boy. He is a very happy pig and is always seen to be rapidly wagging his tail when there’s someone around.
Jemima is Kew, our first show pigs daughter, and she is like her in many ways, which is probably why they do not get along! Her father is Patrick, also an old show pig, so it’s in her genes to be a show off and love being around people! She was born in 2012 and is an absolute lady and walks very elegantly. She doesn’t like to be in the forefront of piggy arguements and would rather have her own space, and go to bed and get comfy. She is everyone’s favourite as she is very sweet and calm, but loves a good chat when you come to see her!
Scarlett was born in 2011 and is the sister of Stephanie & Kew. She has had may litters of piglets and is a great mother to them, She is now even a grandmother! She has only attended one of our events which was The Pet Expo at Bluewater in Kent and was a fab addition to the show. She is a very chilled out girl and loves to have her tummy rubbed – she will lay at your feet to hint at what she wants!
Patrick is one on our breeding boars born in 2011. He has done many shows and appearances with us including The London Pet show and been on T.V appearances and photo shoots with us. He has black fluffy hair and is extremely cute! He still does bits and pieces with us but he mostly does boar hire around the country. He is a lovely addition to our farm as he is so chilled out and will happily sit with you on the floor for a cuddle!
