Some people have a weakness for exotic animals, and they consider it commonplace to keep a dog, cat or parrot in the house. One of these people is a married couple from Toronto, in whose house lives a real pig weighing 227 kilograms.

Derek Walter and Steve Jenkins were living fairly ordinary lives until a huge 227-pound pig named Esther came into their house.

2. In late 2012, Jenkins was approached by his old high school girlfriend, who said she got a mini pig, but her dog flatly refuses to accept it. She said that she remembers Jenkins as an animal lover, which is why she decided to turn to him.

3. A couple of days later, without the consent of his partner, Jenkins brought home an allegedly six-month-old adult piglet, which should no longer grow and weigh more than 30 kg.

4. “When we took Esther to the vet, he was concerned that our piglet's tail was cut off, which indicated that she was a pig breeder, not a domestic one. We were horrified, but at that moment we already fell in love with her. We decided to wait and see what happens next. Esther got bigger every day,” says Jenkins.

7. “Now all the food is in the top cabinets. She loves to wrestle and play with toys, she comes to cuddle and loves to have her belly scratched. She looks a lot like a big super smart dog, smart enough to learn how to open closed doors and closets. It is amazing".
