    Meet Virginia, the pig who thinks she's a dog

    Virginia is a lovely Juliana pig that seems to think of herself as another homey dog. 

    Her owner states that the piggy feels as much like a dog as her boxer brothers and sisters.

    Virginia is 10 months old and lives in Colorado, United States, together with her owners and a couple of boxers. According to her owner, she’s smarter than the dogs are – she learned to use their dog door before they did, and she was very easy to potty train as well.

    And in case you are guessing, no, she never rolls over in poop or mud, she prefers to roll around in sand or dirt. So she doesn't smell at all. 

    This case brings us back memories of Tallie, an Alaskan Malamute dog who behaves as a cat, posted on our sister site, dogsandpuppies.

    In our mind, pigs are usually seen as merely livestock and tend to forget how clever they are.

    No matter why they are becoming highly popular as pets, for they are very loving animals!
