For this talented little piggy, life is never a bore.
At a mere six months old, he has managed to master a selection of tasks which would leave some dogs scratching their heads.
Called Sue, after the Johnny Cash song A Boy Named Sue, he can shake hands by presenting his trotter on command, run through tunnels, navigate around cones, climb ramps and even complete a figure of eight.

Owner Wendy Scudamore believes her talented porker could not only beat canine competitors in an agility contest, but even turn out to be a real-life Babe and learn how to herd sheep just like the pig in the hit movie.
She has introduced Sue, a Kune Kune pig, one of the world's smallest breeds, to her flock at her Herefordshire farm.
And despite being only 2ft tall, he appears to have the masterful air necessary to keep them in line.

Mrs Scudamore said Sue started copying her dogs when he saw her daughter Lucy training them in the garden and worked out that they were receiving treats when they were successful at negotiating obstacles.
'Pigs are very intelligent and I would say Sue is easily as clever as a dog,' she said.
'I'm going to enter Sue in this summer's Royal Welsh Show in the dog agility event.'

She added: 'He has been watching the sheep through the fence and has even met them up close, although he was a little wary at first. If he saw a dog herding the sheep I'm sure Sue could learn to do it.'
The Kune Kune, pronounced Cooney Cooney, is a breed of domestic pig from New Zealand which first arrived in Britain in 1992. Its name means fat and round in Maori.
Mrs Scudamore, who has exported Kune Kunes all over Europe, had hoped to use Sue as a breeding boar.

But she said: 'Due to a very unfortunate mix-up at the vets he was mistakenly castrated.

'I felt very bad about this and decided not to pass him on to someone else but to try him at obedience training. So far he has been a little star.'
Mrs Scudamore uses Sue and her other animals to help visitors with learning disabilities and behavioural problems at Barton Hill Animal Centre, near Kentchurch, Herefordshire.

His owner believes Sue could learn to herd sheep as well as the Babe character in the 1995 hit film
