About Pygmy GoatsAbout Pygmy Goats



Pygmy Goats were originally called the Cameroon Dwarf Goat since they originated in the former French Cameroon area. They are mostly found in West African countries. Similar forms of Pygmy goats also are found across northern Africa, southern western African countries, and in east Africa.

The Cameroon goats were exported from Africa to zoos in Sweden and Germany where they were on display as exotic animals. The first Pygmys probably arrived in the United States in 1959 from Sweden.

Pygmy goats have a full coat of straight, medium-long hair which varies in density with seasons and climates. Most often they have a grizzled (agouti) pattern produced by intermingling of light and dark hairs, of any color.

Pygmy Goats, as you might guess, are a breed of miniature goats. Pygmy goats tend to be kept as pets primarily, although they are sometimes used as milk producers and working animals. Pygmy goats are quite hardy, an asset in a wide variety of settings, and can adapt to virtually all climates.
