Uh, no they're not!! When a cute little piglet post is made by a celebrity or someone with some buying influence, I post 3 links. The "teacup" and "micro" myth, PLEASE read before you get a pig, and one of our blogs, what having a pet pig is REALLY like. Hopefully, it resonates....
Max not only had a good beginning, he led a life of comfort and privilege befitting a Hollywood pet. George and Max have been described as "inseparable" by the celebrity press - which is surely just porkies. But Max was often seen rooting around on set while Clooney was filming and was allowed in the mega-star's bedroom. Max has been blamed for bringing at least two of Clooney's relationships to an end (the model Celine Balitran apparently got the wrong answer when she issued an "It's me or the pig" ultimatum). Clooney even took Max on a trip in John Travolta's private jet. Rest in paradise sweet angel Max....

In 2014, he was upset when his pet pig was denied entry into the UK, red tape is keeping the pig from being allowed to move from Italy to England: "Government rules mean to get the black-spotted animal here he must first register as a breeder, then get a certificate of health from an Italian vet before she is allowed to fly."
Still no word about the reunion....no additional pictures have been publicly posted.
A Quote from her reality show....
"You might have noticed that our backyard farm has grown since last week. We welcomed Hank the pig to our family and our baby blackbird hatched. Hank looks so small on screen. We were told he’d be 25 pounds full grown. Well, he’s now over 100! But we love the guy."
Last that I could find, Hank was sent to a farm where he could "be a pig" a while back.

She ended up breeding her pigs and eventually? You guessed it, dumped them at a pig rescue.

Buying into trends has its consequences, as Harry Potter star Rupert Grint would know. In the midst of the U.K.’s teacup pig craze, Grint bought a pair of the tiny porkers, which can sell for up to $1,100. However, there was a rumor that Grint was actually ripped off and bought a normal pig instead. In response to the controversy, the actor told NBC in 2010 that the pig was getting “kind of big now. We’ve got him living outside now.” When asked if his pet species of choice is really the most intelligent, Grint replied, “I haven’t really seen proof of that yet.” He named them Stanley and Oscar...sadly, Oscar passed away in 2010. Run free sweet baby.
Sorry Rupert, you got exactly what you paid for...a pig.
Here she discusses her Bubba Sue, now renamed "pig pig" on the Jimmy Kimmel show.

No pictures of the pigs could be found though. There was once a video online, but it appears as if even that has been removed....
Movies are no better. There are little piglets, as well as big pigs featured in many movies furthering the "I want a teacup pig" trend.
I am all about pigs as pets, but ONLY for educated and prepared families. Please do your research before running out and getting a pig. Do not let movies and commercials fool you, pigs are NOT easy to take care of all the time.
