Pygmy Nanny Goat
Pygmy goats have been bred and selected for their usefulness as backyard pets. Although they can be milked, they are excellent foragers, and they are playful and outgoing, just like other goats. Pygmy goats are small enough to live in a dog house, and their feeding requirements are less. For these reasons, Pygmies are preferred by people and organizations that don’t have the living space or forage space for larger goats. Pygmy goats are likely related to dwarf goats from West Africa, although pigmy goats have been bred a little stockier.
