you will find other reports on her that angry people have posted. they were answered by her by saying she is MAGGIE GATLIN, the owner of Petite Porkers. and Lovadee is her sister, who only helps sometimes with taking care of animals and bookkeeping. that is a complete and bogus statement. she is LOVADEE Patton Shoults, who has only been selling these pigs for just 2 years. look at her oldest pics on her fb page. Oct 2011 was her first sales. she and Everett Cobbin ran Big Block Kennels a few years back. you can do a search on them on this rip off report site. you will see her going by about 4 diff. names, when the heat gets on, she changes names. to the point now she has went to the alias of MAGGIE GATLIN. you will see her listed on here years ago as Ann Patton/Dee Patton/Lovadee Patton/Lovadee Shoults.  i have attached documents showing her posting her birthday celebration as Maggie on her petite porkers page, guess what. [continued below]....'s March 29....same as Lovadee. how can they be sisters when they look identical and have the same birthday. we did an extensive background search and there are only 2 maggie gatlin's registered with id in Texas. one is 21 in El Paso, and one is 85 in Hooks,TX.  don't be fooled by her. she is a criminal trying to bury her lies.

These two women saved my life.

AUTHOR: Jen L - ()

I had lived on the street since I was thirteen, I ran away from an abusive home only to end up in a worse situation.  I was prostituting, using drugs and abusing alcohol.  Im blessed to be alive today because of these two women.
I was 17 and can remember that day as if it were yesterday, even know it was 10 years ago.  My boyfriend and I had been drinking and using drugs all day he wanted to stop at a bar and get a cpl shots before we called it a night.  When we got out of the car he could not find his wallet and he went off, totally freaked out accusing me of taking it.  He came across a wire coat hanger while searching the car and he began whipping me all over with it.  I was screaming and crying and curled up on the ground with my arms over my face as he kept on; then it all stopped, I heard him yelling and other ppl and when I uncovered my face that was the first time I saw Lovadee.  She was a manger at that bar and customers walking in told her a man was beating a women with a wire in the parking lot.  This amazing women walked out in a dress and heels and snatched the hanger from him and began whipping him with it.  Security came and took him and she asked me to come inside, she waited with me in a back office for the police; we talked and the things she said were life changing it all hit home.  For this women who did not know me from Adam to take her time for me and also the love and concern she just glows with. My life started a new then and there! I filed charges against my boyfriend that night and I also met Maggie.  Maggie is a duplicate of Lovadee not in looks but in heart and soul.  Maggie got out of bed and drove an hour just to come that night and take me to a battered women's center.  First we stopped by my apartment and she helped me get what little I owned, she then took me to Walmart and purchased toiletries and a bit of cloths I needed.  Maggie also spoke some of the kindest words to me; words that stick with me to this day and these two women did not stop there.  Lovadee offered me a place to stay later and together I worked with them and learned to groom animals and also photography. They helped me get a job at a grooming salon and then at a photography studio.  I learned how to conduct myself as a lady, I learned from watching them with their children and others how to be a mother, they taught me to see everything and everyone with an open heart and a open mind; Not to go threw life with blinders on but to see it all good and bad and what to take to heart as well as what to let roll off your shoulders. I found out how to give and get respect and in the last 10 years I have seen these two women take in other ppls children, take in entire families, take in all sorts of animals; I have been witness to them giving their last dollar to some one in need and much much more.
I was with them once when a great Dane was hit by a car in front of us....the car kept on. Lovadee and Maggie  stopped got the huge dog in their car and were driving around asking ppl if they knew where he lived or the closest vet when they came across the post man and he knew where the dog belonged.  They got directions and went and banged on the ppls door a women was home (she worked nights) and we helped her get the dog in her car,  she rushed him to the vet. Later she contacted them to thank them and to let them know he made it..... just banged up and had a few cuts and bruises.  
I was with them one late evening when they passed a young women on the side of the road with a flat tire.  They turned around to help her but she was afraid and rightly so.  The young lady hopped over the guard rail and jogged toward a near by gas station.  Maggie and Lovadee changed her tire together it took them only 5-10 minutes it looked like the young women had everything out to change it but was reading the instructions from the her car manual.  They then drove over to the gas station and found the girl standing inside watching and told her that the tire was changed so she could go back.  
I could tell you hundreds of stories....stories were other ppl would have just passed by but Lovadee and Maggie they are not those type of ppl. 
Lovadee and Maggie have always been sisters to me, if they are not by blood then so what, they are still sisters; their parents or whoever parents, they both call them mom and pops. They are wonderful ppl as well and Im blessed to know them all.  Im honored to consider them in my heart my sisters.  I have two children my oldest I was pregnant with and didn't know it yet.... that very night Lovadee saved me.  Im happily married now and my children call Lovadee and Maggie their Aunts, I could not give them two better women in this world as roll models blood or not.
All I can say is these reports are the most far fetched, ridiculous false accusations I have ever heard and it brakes my heart that anyone would say these things about two ppl who are so loving and self sacrificing as Lovadee and Maggie are.  I can not express just how lucky you are if you have the opportunity to meet or work with these not pass it up, even the smallest amount of time with them can change your life.

And to the ppl who are diligently trying to hurt them, please head my warning these women are fighters beyond any others I have ever met, mentally and physically.  They are not able to be the angles they are today without have lived threw pain themselves and even know they would give their last to help another;  these are the last type of women you want to back into a corner, these are the worst type of people you want to turn on YOU.  They do and they give 200% 24/7 they do not vaccation they do not take brakes and I would never want to see the amount of passion and focus they have...all focused toward you!

Your evidence is weak!

AUTHOR: Li5aMarie - ()

Exhibite A ~ A photo on Loveadee's facebook

  • It has no caption
  • It is not tagged

You are assuming that the photo is of Loveadee.  I post pictures of other people all the time.  Who is to say they dont know each other and Loveadee posted a photo of Maggie?

Exhibite B ~ A Doucment showing theft with Loveadee's name on it and the Cricket store.  SO? This in no way show Maggie and Loveadee and the same person. I am assuming it is because it shows the date of birth for Loveadee? 

Exibite C~ A Facebook photo of food with a caption indicating it was a birthday celebratiion.  Dated a DAY YOU CLAIM Maggie is stating is her birthay.  Sometimes, Just sometimes, people dont always celebrate thier birthdays on the actualy day they were born.  AND the date show is the date the photo is uploaded.  So who is to say the photo and birthday celbration was not 2 months proir to the date shown on facebook?


Exhibite D ~ More legal crap that proves nothing except whoever posted this is a nosey. ill mannered person who is missing that Souther Charm I hear so much about. 


I am an investigator and your evicence is weak.  Give it up.

This is all LIES

AUTHOR: KaliBelle - ()

Whoever posted this "RipOff" report is a liar!! Maggie is the best micro pig breeder out there! She does nothing but spend 24/7 of her life answering questions, helping people out, donating and supporting charities and being an all around AMAZING woman. I'm a pretty sure that all of these reports are all falsely written by the sme woman!! I would be glad to start handing out her info on the Internet too! I bought my pig from Maggie and I would NEVER have chosen another breeder!! Oh, and if you actually LOOK at her business page there are pictures of herself and her sister TOGETHER! Yes, the look similar as sisters should! But they are definitely NOT the same person! People need to stop lying!

Maggie has been very helpful

AUTHOR: California Pig - ()

I had a very sick pig.  Maggie was very helpful to me.  The pig didn't even come from Maggie.  Maggie is a wonderful piggy breeder.  These are all lies started by another breeder.  I have had contact with the other breeder that is posting these lies.  The other breeder who is in California is a jealous spiteful woman who wants to be on top of the market.  Karma is going to catch up one of these days.  I'll have my popcorn ready for the show.

How conveniently odd

AUTHOR: Greeneyedlustr - ()

I find it completely and conveniently ODD that all of the bad reports filed on Maggie Gatlin with Petite Porkers were filed within just a few days of one another. Maggie Gatlin, AKA Petite Porkers, is in fact MAGGIE GATLIN from WALLER, TX. She is not only a kind person, but also VERY KNOWLEDGABLE in regards to mini pigs. She has been very kind and helful with the purchase of our little piggy. She stays in contact with me via Facebook, email and phone when I need assistance. I would highly recommend Petite Porker to anyone who is looking for a true mini pig from a reputable and responsible breeder. She would do anything for her animals and her family. I think that if any of this were true the person calling her out would have stepped forward and put their name on the reports. I know that if Maggie had filed a report she would have put her real name on it. Maggie Gatlin called out several bad breeders ect on Facebook this summer (I read all of them at the time) and this is just good old fashioned backstabbing RETALIATION in regards to this. I think the person who filed this false report should come forward and admit to their wrong doing. I would do business with Maggie any and every time.

PS: Along with these false reports Maggie and her family have also been receiving threatening phone calls.

Happy Pig Purchaser

AUTHOR: Silor17201 - ()

Summary: I bought a pig from Petite Porkers and plan on doing it again.

In Detail: I did a lot of research when looking into buying pigs and wanted to make sure I was getting my pig from a reputable breeder and Petite Porkers IS a reputable breeder.

In my search for a reputable breeder I had some questions regarding the Petite Porker website etc and Maggie took the time to write me a very lengthy and in-depth email about her, her family, her business, farm etc.

I also knew she was a reputable breeder because she asked me questions before I got my pig and had me sign a contact to spay/neuter my pig as well as agree to contact her if I could not keep the pig for some reason.  She didn’t just want to take my money and have nothing to do with me.  I have seen SEVERAL pigs on craigslist that people are trying to get rid of and their breeder is no help to them and Maggie would NEVER let this happen to one of her pigs.

I got exactly what I was told I would get, a loved, well adjusted, socialized mini pig!  I took her to the vet and he was in awe of how small she was and said she was in perfect health!  My pig loves people and I have been told twice by two different vet techs that she is more loving and social than any pig they have had come into their office.  This is because her socialization started at such a young age with Maggie.

I have had questions about my pig during the year and a half we have had her and Maggie has always responded and given sound advice.  If I have questions or concerns she is available via phone, email or facebook to help me and she is an invaluable resource.

I am looking into getting another pig and because of the above mentioned reasons I am going to get it from Maggie.  She is a BBB accredited business and on top of that she has a facebook page where her customers all post pictures of their awesome pets and I have never seen a negative comment on there…and trust me for all the negative facebook is used for if someone was unhappy it would have been on her facebook page.

I do not know Maggie personally but I do know the business Petite Porkers from having done business with them for a year and a half now and she is all I could have expected from a breeder.  I have no concerns about Petite Porkers or their adorable, well taken care of, greatly loved piggies.

Please do not believe this.

AUTHOR: HUpper - ()

 Hello, I do not know Maggie personally, I am a customer of hers. I can say that I never had a single problem with her. She was kind, honest and very helpful. When I was deciding to get a pig I did about 2 years of research and several more months once I decided on Maggie, these months included speaking to about 30 or so of her past customers. All were very happy with their experiance with her. I was never neglected or ignored by her. Even when my family had a crisis where I could no longer keep my pig Maggie went the extra mile and found a wonderful new home for her that was not too far away. Even now without a pig she keeps in contact with me and is always very kind and helpful. I would probably get another pig from her someday in the future, well as long as people will stop spreading so much BS about her and her piggy business.

So everyone, please, do not believe this womans lies. Even not personally meeting Maggie I know that I can trust her. My little pig-girl was extremely healthy and happy, she had no skin problem or mental disorders which a lot of mill-animals possess. I think anyone interested in ever getting a piglet should get a hold of Maggie, even her advice is top-rate. :)

Piggie Purchaser

AUTHOR: mmarie - ()

These reports are down right hilarious. I am very proud to boast that I have purchased a piglet from Maggie/Lovadee/I dont really care what her 1st name is or was or should be, and neither should anyone else. She has a buisness accredited by the BBB, and it just seems that these other petty girls are extremely jealous of her success.

In the solid year and a half that I have been following every channel of her company I have never witnessed even one complaint by a consumer. Only those of her so called "competition" who have obviously done nothing in life worth mentioning since all the claims are one sided. There been no bragging about how much better their sites/lives/ or even piggies are. The more you post hurtful things about someone else, the more it shows you have no buisness to run or really anything to preoccupy your own time. More or less you're obscenely jealous. 

Furthermore if these claims or accusations had anything to do with the outcome of the animals she breeds then she would no longer have a loyal following nor have a buiness to even attack. My piglet Romeo is extremely socialized and has been since day 1, meaning she took her time when he was born to get him that way. He has all his vet records and was able to travel through United Airlines, yet again meaning she took her time to supply everything needed to legally have him fly. He is the correct color and predicted size/weight as agreed when I purchased him. He is perfect.

Overall, I'm a purchaser of the piglet. Not of someones background information, current lifestyle, or home life. It does not affect, not only her animals, but even her buisness what she may or may not do in her personal life. So please, take a look for yourself at her pages. If she was accussed, tried, or sentenced to running a puppy mill in any other form other than more posts on this site the BBB wouldn't allow her to be accredited. Think logically.

This is absolute BS all being posted by other pig breeders

AUTHOR: Maggie Gatlin - ()

We are accedited with the BBB we pay taxes on all our pig sales and we have over 50 customer references including vets and our personal Chase Business banker.  We are well known by the Sheriff Livestock investigator and the SPCA we are caring for over 50 rescue pigs besides our own breeding stock.  These reports are all posted by some nasty hateful breeders who beleive we posted something about them but we have NOT.  If we were upset with a buisness we would report it to a legitamate site like the BBB not one that allows lies to be posted over and over agian.  They keep posting that we are running a that my sister is a criminal yet they are not posting that we have had the same phone numbers for over 8 years now we still live in the same area even know we have moved ONCE and both of our names are on all our contracts.  We have visits to our farm all the time and my husband went to court and the charges from like 4-5 years ago were dropped because he had nothing to do with it (mistaken identity).   The home page of our website says right there this is a family buisness.  Yes we have famuly that was arrested but that has nothing to do with animals and nothing at all to do with Peitte Porkers besidesn the fact that it was in the past. The lies that they are spreading are hurtful and vicouse. They are calling and harrasssing our family from blocked numbers and have even made threats to our lives.  We have had to have the Sheriff out multiple times and if they would contact us or even disclose who they are we would happily file charges on them.  But they post these lies and hide behind sites like this...... trying to friend our minor children on FB and harrass them.  They think this is a game of some sort but it is not at all we are not just good ppl we are a great family who works close with our comunity and we have all the proof of who we are, our happy customers and years of experience.  Dont beleive this crap call us 832-891-8420 check out our website friend us on Facebook and speak to our many MANY happy customers.  See for yourself what crap this is and by the way there are 6 family members that all work with and are involved with our super tiny pet pigs.
