He is very dominant. My other piggy (his father) constantly runs away from him and is very scared. I do think a submissive piggy would be a better pairing for this baby. My other piggy lived his whole life alone previous to me adopting him, so he doesn't seem to enjoy a pig who chases him around. Maybe if you have another piggy, we could do a bonding session and see if it works.
He is so sweet but still VERY skittish due to young age. He will stay on my lap for a bit until he wants to leave. It takes time for adolescents. Born April 2 so he is almost 2 months old. He popcorns A LOT and he loves cilantro the most. He will sniff your hand for veggies and sometimes lifts his two front feet up if you're holding a veggie! He is so cute and I don't want to do this but my other piggy is so very stressed. There is a $25 rehoming fee to ensure he goes to a good home.
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!
