"Teacup" pigs have became the latest trendy pet in England. The little piggies weigh just over half a pound at birth and only grow to 12 to 16 inches high, topping out at about 65 pounds - rather svelte in the pig world. "It's about the size of a small spaniel," said Jane Croft, a teacup pig breeder who appeared on NBC's "Today." "They make fantastic pets. They're really clean. They're highly intelligent and just love to be loved. They give so much back to you." Croft, 42, began breeding the porkers five months ago. The animals are a cross between potbellied pigs that were popular a few years ago - George Clooney kept one as a pet - with the Tamworth, Kune Kune and Gloucester Old Spot breeds, according to msnbc.com. Like many mini-dog breeds, teacup pigs are expensive. Croft only sells them in pairs - at $1,100 each - and she has strict guidelines for prospective buyers.
