Raisin's owners say the miniature pig takes baths, does tricks, paints pictures and poses as an Instagram sensation with more than 9,000 followers.

More than 100,000 people have signed a petition for updated ordinances to distinguish between farm swine and miniature pigs that are kept as pets.

Raisin's owners say the city has been very supportive, but if they have to, they will move in order to keep Raisin.
