The mother of the 2 babies died today, leaving 2 pups who are almost 3 weeks old. My co-workers husband just directed her to bring the guinea pigs to work tomorrow and dispose of them by whatever means possible, be it stocking the pet store or whatever. They have 5 guinea pigs and want to rehome at least 3 of them--the babies and their father. The father is 6 months old. I will try to get some photos for anyone interested to view.
Salana, I sent your friend an e-mail.
Sylvester, I agree with you. Tidbit and Morsel are adorable, but I've gotten most of my pigs as adults and can't imagine loving them a bit less because we got together later in life. I'd really like to rescue a senior and give him or her a nice retirement home someday.
My criteria for adopting a new pig are: What's in the shelter and do I have room? A Witherspoon-type Texel is my fantasy pig, but I seem to enjoy any pig I come across.
2.) basically healthy
This board has shed a new light on things for me. I am having a hard time because you have so many specifics... a tiny pig no red eyes and a silkie.
Thanks to my local SPCA VMOUSE and someone who did not want to be bothered I have a wonderful heard of mismatched pigs!
As for the pups, I saw Tidbit (looks like a tiny skunk) use the water bottle today. Yay! My daughter really likes them, and it will be at least a week before we can decide what we'll do with them. Morsel is beige, black and white. Their hair seems a bit longer than that of an American, so I'm wondering if some Silky might be in there. I'll see about getting some photos so someone who knows breeds better than I do can verify that. They are cuties!

Callie is an absolutely wonderful pig: friendly, sweet and not skittish at all. Plus she's healthy and robust.
We didn't base our search on looks and got a beautiful pig anyway. Callie's my TV watching buddy.
