Hello all, I adopted a guinea pig from a petsmart I worked at and ended up rehoming her with my uncle since I did not have the proper space for her/ could not get her a friend and he had 2 females already. He took her and has had her for about 4 months now and she has done great with his other 2 girls and I have since moved and got to adopt 2 boars. My uncle is now moving and cannot take them but has asked me if I can take her back and his ex girlfriend will possibly keep their original 2, I am unable to now since I do not have the space for 2 cages in my new apartment, I have thought about neutering my boars but read that adding a female even after they are neutered can cause them to fight still, I am afraid of trying and ruining their bond. We are now both trying to find her a loving home.
My sister named her August when I got her and she is striped creme and black, she is not spayed. She is about 1 years old and has a head tilt, I also believe she is deaf. When I adopted her they told me she was blind but my uncle says he believes she can see a little. We found out she was deaf about two days after we got her when my dog barked at her from behind and she was just as cool as a cucumber, no ear movement and no wheaks. She is a very funny pig and is quite sassy. Since she has a head tilt when you let her have floor time she spins in a circle almost like she is doing little donuts then will walk a little then do it again, so she gets more lap time.
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.
But I want THAT one!
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!
