Hey Trace it's Thad L. with our pig Yaro. I have to tell you (again) how great our pig is. He is brilliant!!!! Communicates better, clearer and more concise than some of my adult friends. He is so affectionate and understands us. He is by far the smartest, easiest, loving and most interacting animal we have ever had. He is simply the best. Thank you again and again from my whole family. Also I have no problem if you forward any referrals to me. They are simple to respond to. Happy Mothers Day.

Hortence AKA Ellie is amazing! From the moment I picked her up at the airport, we connected. I was shocked at how tiny she was and hearing her little grunts, I couldn't wait to get her out of her carrier! As soon as we got in the car, she drank water and nibbled on some of her pellets. She sat calmly on my lap the whole ride home. Just as predicted by Trace and CJ, on her first night home she slept in her litter box! I had a little trouble getting her to go potty in the correct spot for her first day or two at home, but once I took Trace and CJ's advice by using wood pellets as her litter instead of ripped up newspaper, there was immediate success! She knows exactly where to potty and is very proud of herself every time I praise her for a great job! Ellie is a doll. She loves getting her belly scratched, napping on my lap, and putting her little snout against my nose. My vet says she is the tiniest and best looking mini pig he's ever seen. She was only 4.2 lbs at our first visit! Ellie is adapting wonderfully into my home and bonding with myself and my two dogs. She is worth every second of the wait and I fall more and more in love every single day.

Trace, I wanted you to know that Yaro already dos tricks. He lays down, sits down, jumps up, give you a hoof and spins. He learns things in just a few minutes and loves to do tricks. He is extreamily happy and he really loves people. He is amaizing.He also comes everytime he is called

Recently adopted Carla and thrilled to have her here! She's so adorable and finally coming around to visit me on her own. Thank you, Trace for talking me through that first day! Now I don't have to go to petting zoos to pet their pigs, I have my own little one!

I purchased my TLC piglet about a month ago and it has been an incredible experience so far. After losing my Italian Greyhound, Penny, after fourteen years, I was not ready to move into my own place without a special companion. I knew I could never replace her with another dog and family cat allergies were also an issue. Then I saw a mini pig on television and started my research. After speaking to multiple sellers, I decided that I wanted to purchase my piglet from TLC Piglets. Trace prepared me completely before bringing home my piglet, which I know started him and I out on the right foot... Or in his case, hoof.
The woman at the airport said that he was 'as quiet as a church mouse' when he got off the airplane. He did a few small oinks on the way home. At this point, I have learned to identify what he wants by the type of noises he makes!
Edgar (previously known as Becker) is now litter box trained, walks on a harness and leash, and goes to obedience training. He sits on command after just three days and I use a 'clicker' with training. My plan for him is to become a therapy animal so he already very well socialized with children and adults. He plays with my parents dogs and chases them around the yard.
Since his arrival he has seen all of the weather New England has to offer. As long as he has on his sweater he does not seem to mind!
Edgar's first vet check up went smoothly and agreed that I got very lucky to have purchased him from a responsible breeder.
(In obedience school) I hope you can post this on your site with one of the pics! Thanks so much Trace!! We love him!
A Video Speaks a Million Words:
As you'll see from the pictures Mika is doing really well :-) She is about 11.5 lbs now and her 13 month birthday will be this week on the 19th. She loves the outdoors and doesn't hesitate to make a dash out with the dogs whenever possible. The biggest change this month is we've gone "free range piggy" which means that Mika has free run in part of the house when we are at work or whenever we are out for an evening, etc. (However, so you know, for safety's sake Mika and our dogs are always separated when we are not home to supervise.) Previously Mika was confined to her "bedroom" if we went out but we felt she was old enough and her potty training was reliable enough to try leaving her out on her own now. The area she has access to has been piggy proofed so there are no wires to tempt her or cabinets she can open to get into food or cleaners etc. As expected it has been a great success and advancement for Mika. She really seems to enjoy her new independence and settled right in to spend her time either lounging on our couch nestled under her favorite blanket, or happily sunning herself in the rays of sunshine that stream through our back window in the morning.
orI would love to be a reference! My lil girl is trim, a streamlined little oinker! She has a varied healthy diet and is lean not a fat chubber that looks like it needs an apple stuffed in it's mouth! She is fearless, loving and has us smiling and laughing constantly I absolutely adore her! Thank you so much!e her! Thank you so much!:)

To Whom This May Concern:
I wanted to provide this testimony concerning CJ Tobler. We have two pigs that came from his ranch in Lockhart, TX. Piper is our teacup pig. She was born 3/28/10. She currently weighs 28 lbs. She will be fully grown in 4 months. Doc is our micro mini pig. He was born 6/28/10. His father is Oink Daddy. Doc is very petite. He is a beautifully marked tuxedo boar. He currently weighs 13 lbs. He will be fully grown in 7 months.
While some people do not believe that miniature pigs exist, we have living, breathing proof. The key to keeping the pigs at their desired weight is their diet. If you follow the diet plan set forth by CJ, your pig will be happy and healthy.
We made the mistake of over-feeding Piper when we first got her. She was very happy, but she was over-weight. In consulting with CJ, we discovered that we were over-feeding her. Once we cut her diet to the recommended serving sizes, she slimmed down.
Pigs love to eat. They will eat anything that you put in front of them. I don’t know if they would ever get full. Pigs love to do three things, eat, sleep and cuddle.
CJ has delivered everything he has promised to us. He is very honest and is a reputable rancher and breeder. We did extensive research before purchasing our pigs. We talked to 4-5 different breeders around the country. None of them were as knowledgeable about the breed as CJ. He spent many hours educating us and answering our questions before we purchased Piper. He has made himself available to answers questions and counsel us after our purchase, as well.
If you have any questions regarding the authenticity of the breed, the reputation of CJ Tobler or our satisfaction in dealing with CJ, please feel free to contact us.
Sincerely, Kurt and Michele
Eugene is doing well, everyone loves him to death! He is completely pot trained, walks on a leash and plays games! His fear of the car has passed and he sits like a big boy in the back seat! We do our best to keep him to a strict diet however Eugene has made a lot of friends and sneaks of to meet them- he is currently 30 pounds and is going to see the vet next month! He walked in his first cancer walk and is looking forward to celebrating his first Halloween!
Emerson had his 6 month checkup today. he is 6 lb 15 oz and in perfect health. what great news! he's a Tony precious miracle who is doing great.

He made it safe and sound. And he's settling in beautifully. He's gorgeous!!
Thanks so much.
I am amazed at how cute he is, he is perfect. He was meant to be my pig.
Thank you so so so so so much for my new baby. I want to do everything I can to make him happy. I've fallen asleep in his room with him the last two nights..
Wanted you to know that Mika, arrived safely to Pittsburgh and our home Friday night. She is a pretty girl with a sweet face. Today she ate breakfast from my hand and allowed some petting. She's even been wagging her tail more and more which I read means a happy piggy.
We are enjoying him as a new addition to our family...
