We adopted our "male" piggy from petsmart, I say "male" because we aren't 100% on the gender he came to us very skittish from the pet store and he was not our first piggy. My daughter who adores piggys just had to have this one as the coloring was different for us but with our busy schedules it has been hard to find quality time for him. And I would prefer someone to love on him and give him the attention he deserves. She is much more into our other animals. He did come to us with what we believed to have been ringworm from the pet store, when we purchased him he had bald spots we didn't notice until after having him home with us and settled in for about two weeks as we bring our animals home to quarantine for 2 weeks and adjust before we handle by the time we noticed his spots it was too late to say anything to the pet store so we decided to home treat with the help from an online vet source. He now is fully healed and has no spots as well. Please ask any questions, he comes with a huge cage and all his things, he is a huge hay eater and is very talkative, just wished we had more interest in him.
Black & white "male" from petsmart bought in January 2021. He was a baby, he is now much larger and thriving. He enjoys his hay, his pellets as well a treat or two. He has a few items for exorcise and play. He is not officially named and we could not decide.
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!
