Thank you for your interest in registering your Miniature Potbellied Pig. The Miniature Potbellied Pig Registry Service, Inc. (MPPRSI) is a closed registry, and as such we only accept pigs whose parents are already registered or who were registered with the original Potbellied Pig Registry Service, Inc (PPRSI) and meet the Miniature Potbellied Pig standard. If you have documentation to confirm parentage to either a MPPRSI or PPRSI registered pig you may be eligible for registration. In addition to documentation you may be required to have a genetic background test performed on your pig to confirm parentage. Please fill out the attached documents and include any papers you may have related to lineage and parentage including bill of sale, pedigree, certificates, or other documents **BEFORE submitting payment by check/money order or paying online. Refunds will not be processed for improperly submitted documents, so please check with us first if you have any questions.
For any applications, additional documents may be requested including DNA samples to confirm parentage.
