Fair enough - BUT ...
How many folks (honestly) know what 220lbs looks like & a medium sized dog, such as a labrador is nearer to 50-70lbs - I think the advert is slanted towards the unsuspecting naives  :huff:

i totally agree with you. the whole issue is a right royal pain. the comparison to medium dog is ridiculous. i just wanted to point out the proviso....

It says on the BKKPS or somewhere in all the Kunekune promotional stuff that they are the Walt Disney version of a pig (ie. cute, and slightly comical/cartoon like in appearance  ;)) compared to other breeds - it sounds like someone has taken that as the basis for their marketing  :-\ If they're also saying they grow to 220lbs I don''t think they're trying to deliberately decieve anyone  ???
