Land lady wants a special guinea pig, friendly,brave and in good health. Race and gender are not issues. Non smoking!
Are you in Manitoba? I'm not sure about there, but here in Ontario there are tonnes of pigs in shelters. I adopted a boar from a shelter and introduced him to my single boar with almost no problems (unless you count the occasional hump session a problem). Look into a shelter pig, they're so greatful for a good home!
I almost thought I had one yesterday but when I called the number I learned that it was a breeder (drat!).
It took me over 4months to find my first pair so I'm not expecting anything soon.
1) female, unknown age, himi puruvian
2) female, 1year, black and white american
Or the Winnipeg Pet Rescue Shelter will have three babies ready to go in a couple of weeks. One white american and two black and white americans.
I think that the himi would be nice but I am worried about her unknown age. I don't want to lose another pig anythime soon. Is there anyway to determin the approximate age of an adult guinea pig?
It is usually easiest to introduce a baby guinea pig to an adult pig. So if I was adopting from a shelter, since you'd then have the pig... I'd want to be the most sure that they'd get along after the quarantine period was over. I'd go with a baby. But it's up to you.
