Move over Rover -- there's a new four legged creature in town.

Rhode Island is joining the trend of micro-pigs -- making it official to have the mini-swine as a pet.

The state has issued the first micro-pig license. It belongs to Victor Kinoian -- who is the owner of "My Pet Piggy." Under state law he can now breed and sell the little pigs.

Like dogs and cats, the micro-pig can be trained to go for walks, use a litter box, and even do tricks.

But do your research before you run out and get a new little pig -- they may look tiny and cute, but these pigs can grow to be between 20 to 40 pounds.
