Adorable video of micro pig on treadmill goes viral

Tomas Jivanda

A young micro pig has become the Internet’s latest animal star after the tiny hog was captured walking on a treadmill.

The porky little animal is seen walking along, wagging its tail, briefly stopping ever so often before stepping up the pace to make sure she doesn’t fall off.

The video was uploaded to Youtube by a breeder of the animals based in Bedfordshire and has since received tens of thousands of views.

Released under the title ‘Young micro pig needs to lose a little weight’, the genius marketing strategy has managed to melt the hearts of the majority of viewers.

The specially bred teacup pigs grow to around 16 inches tall, but can get bigger, or be as small as 12 inches tall fully grown.
