It depends on how much they have and if the particular dog is prone to pancreatic inflammation which you can read about here
Its not the pork its the fat that would be bad.
Little dogs need tiny treats not big ones. While a small amount of the salt and preservatives and fat might not be harmful to your dog a big amount could be.
Hope this helps you!
