Pygmy goats are the most adorable goat breed. They are miniature goats that provide the best source of entertainment to goat owners across the globe. Pygmy goats were introduced to the world from central Africa. These goats were the result of a type of dwarfism. However, because of their hardiness and because of their calm and friendly nature, they were taken into individual homes. Another important trait of the pygmy goat is their size. This makes them the perfect urban backyard pet. They are not as demanding for space or food as other dairy goats but provide milk that is of better quality. Therefore, these goats are great pets to have. It is important to understand when you are bringing home a pet goat that this animal needs special care and attention. They are seldom found in the urban set up. They are usually raised in large numbers on farms and also in designated commercial set ups where there is ample professional help available to take care of these animals.
