Miley Cyrus Adopts a Pig, Names It Bubba SueBy: Ann Casano - August 11, 2014
Paris Hilton, Reese Witherspoon, and Tori Spelling had one. George Clooney had a pretty famous 300-pounder named Max for 18 years.
Now, Miley Cyrus is the proud owner of a touring pet piglet. The pop star named her potbelly Bubba Sue, and took to Instagram on Sunday to show him (or her) off to the world by posting several pics of herself with her newly adopted pet.
Bubba Sue is clearly a little snuggle bug and has even had the opportunity to travel on a private jet.
Cyrus wrote “newest member to the fam #bubbasue” above this picture.
Here’s Bubba Sue’s first plane ride.
A little humor from Cyrus, “matching neck rolls.”
Looks like Emu, Miley’s dog, is taking a liking to the newest addition.
“Happiest mommy ever”
Bubba Sue is the second pig that the Wrecking Ball singer has owned. However, this is the first time that we’ve seen a pig traveling with the singer while on tour. In 2012, the animal rights charity PETA even sponsored a pet pig in honor of Cyrus turning 20-years-old. A spokeswoman for the organization said in 2012, “PETA knew that sponsoring a rescued pig was the perfect birthday present for a young woman who spends so much time encouraging others to help animals.”
Cyrus is currently traveling the world on the Bangerz Tour in support of her fourth studio album called Bangerz. She hit the road in Toronto back in February. The tour runs until October. The pop star’s next stop is Kansas City, where she will play one show on Tuesday night.

Sure they’re cute but perspective owners have to consider several different factors like the age of children in the home, other pets, location, zoning laws, how much care the animal needs, etc.
