That is only true of some cuts of pork (shoulder/Boston Butt in particular). The same happens to beef if you use analogous cuts (like chuck.) It's not the animal, but the part and whether it's a well-exercised part with lots of fat, collagen/connective tissue or a lean part with minimal connective tissue that is not exercised much.
