I have been interested in having a pig as a companion...well a smaller version of a pig and I have been doing some reserch on Juliana pigs recently and have found that they weight between 30-50 lbs as adults if on a healthy diet and can be at least 13-15 inches in height. And would just like to know if this is true or not. And if they are able to live indoors (which im sure they are but may need some kind of exercise such as walks). And if they need a special diet I do know that they need a special mini pig food since regular farm hog food packs on the pounds for these guys. But lets say with a mixture or the "Mini" pig food could you add the regular fruits and vegetables in there as well as treats?

I have no experience with these pigs but here is a pet pig website http://www.petpigeducation.com/

According to their pig breeds page the height range is 13-18 inches and they should weigh 50 pounds plus and not as low as 30 like some sources say. http://www.petpigeducation.com/pig-breeds.html

There are a lot of "Juliana's" on my local craigslist and many are obvious scams or at the least very misinformed sellers. So be careful where you purchase if you decide to get one.

And that 50+ means 50 is the minimum. The average will be like 90-110. Pot bellies are like 120-150. Pigs take several years to reach full size but can breed really young so it's easy for breeders to fool people.

not that I know a lot about the mini pigs. only from some people that had or have them.

most pigs, even mini's do better outside. a pigs instinct is to "root" I know a guy that had a pot belly pig and kept the pig in his house.
the pig rooted up his kitchen floor. I use to raise meat pigs, and wow, can they do some rooting outside. don't need a tiller for a garden with them :lol:

if you really want a mini pig, consider an outdoor enclosure, but, you can also try bringing him in the house for short visits. :shrug:

I have looked into getting a Juliana pig as well. you have to look at the parents, and be sure the parents are at least 5 years old, since pigs don't stop growing til that age. And they should be fed on a regular pig diet!! you should NOT starve your pig. a starved pig is unhealthy, and quite frankly if you care that much about size, then a "mini" pig is not right for you. lots of people who own julianas get pigs that are 200 lbs. there aren't very many pure julianas around anymore. most are potbelly mixes.... I want an indoor pig, but I'd be fine if he got huge. I really like this breeder: https://www.texastinypigs.com/ not all of their pigs are julianas but they're sure tiny!!!

I also have not seen many Juliana pigs.  If I see any for sale, I will be sure to let you know. (I agree with splashstorm, craigslist is not a good place to look for animals)
Are there any type of auctions near you?  Can you look for breeders in your area?

I did raise farm pigs. I had a male and female. both were very gentle. The male was very large. the female had a couple litters of babies.
Once the babies were old enough, I put them in a separate pen (they were for meat) As these pigs grew, they got pretty nasty.
However, they tasted good. LOL.
