Pinto is a short haired, black and white spotted little man who has a penchant for squeaking and sharing his favorite leaf of kale with his brother, Red Head. Red is a long haired black furred guy who loves to jump around the cage but is much shyer than lil Pinto. They're both very timid around people but seem to enjoy the company of small kids better than adults. They're both a year and two months old, adopted from the Watauga Humane Society with no knowledge of their previous owners. They hate loud noises, love kale, carrots, grapes, and cucumber, and hate spinach (although I suspect that the only reason Pinto hates spinach is because he watched Red Head turn up his nose at it, but whatever). I brought them from my loud college apartment to my parent's house in suburbia and they seem to like the atmosphere here so much better. Both full of happy squeals, although sometimes they squeak angrily at each other when they fight over their pig tunnel.
Sorry, NO. Please do not contact the owner and ask about shipping guinea pigs. It is NOT possible. Please look for guinea pigs LOCAL to you! That's what this site is for--helping you find a guinea pig close to home to adopt and love.
Yes, that one is adorable and looks just like the one you must have for your very important reason or you will not be able to go on living. But, there are many more in your area that are just as wonderful. Perhaps they are not listed here, but they can be found. The piggy in need waiting for you near your own back yard might look a little different, but could melt your heart anyway!
