Oh my...he is adorable. I wish you lived closer, I'd snatch him up in a second. Because lord knows I need another pig in my life. =)

I've been a licensed rescue for oh.....1 month and I am already full and diverting pigs to other avenues.

How old is that little guy?

Whoa! I must clarify. Elvis is not for adoption (I'm his slave). Elvis is looking for a roommate.

Guinea Pig Wanted!

Sorry for any confusion :)

With that Mexican patterned blanket behind him, your pig looks so . . . Exotic? Latin? Handsome, that's for sure.
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!

No there are none in shelters here. The shelter in the town I live in is strictly cats and dogs and the two in the Winnipeg don't have piggers right now. I noticed that they get the odd pig, but they are few and far between.

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.

Good luck! I was so sad to hear about sweet little Tal. Elvis is mighty handsome.

If it was possible, I'd ship you a couple boars from the Toronto Humane Society right now. There's one there now named Waylon who has that crazy, extra long butt hair. He's such a sweetheart! He's bonded to his brother, Wallie, and they have to be taken together. Check them out on the website.

I asked Tuck how he felt about foregoing the snip and going to live in Canada with Elvis. He said it was far too cold there, but he will keep his toes crossed that Elvis will find a good friend very soon.

Again, I am so sorry about Tal.

Well there are two pigs ready for adoption at the winnipeg humane society.
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?

I don't know about age, savy, but poor Tal was quite young! I don't think there are any guarantees, sadly. Can you go meet them?

No I can't go meet them. They are in a different city and it will take 2.5 hours to go there. I will probably go later in the week. It depends on what I descide to do.

You can somewhat tell their age... but not very accurately. For example, older pigs tend to have ears that are dry around the edges and losing pigment. Their eyes have a different look to them too. But it would be hard to tell if that meant they were 4 years old or 7.

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.

Pigglies, but isn't that just in the case of a same sex match up? Elvis is a desexed male, and both these pigs are females. Is it still necessary to worry about age match ups?

Well, probably not. But 2 adults are still harder to introduce than the adult and a baby would be.
