Paris Hilton Catches Mini Pig Fever!

"So excited for my new piglette to come home to me," Hilton wrote about the black-and-white-spotted pig.
Miss Pigelette comes from Patty Sorenson, a miniature pot-bellied pig breeder in Oregon. Sorenson's website, royaldandie.com, bills the animal as "America's smallest breed of miniature pig."
Sorenson offers two varieties, Royal Dandies (29-39 lbs.) and Dandie Extremes (19-29 lbs.). Miss Pigelette is a Dandie Extreme, which can cost from $3,500 to $4,500.
Hilton, who has been criticized by animal advocacy groups for her ongoing collection of pets, told PEOPLEPets.com in July that she currently has six dogs – who share a backyard mini-mansion. And this summer, the heiress also added a rescue kitten named Princess Annabelle to her brood.
