Laverne and Shirley
Charles and Revel
Toby is a single boar that’s about a year old. He is a tri-colored short hair guinea pig. He is a very sweet pig who likes to have lap time and time to run around. Toby needs a good home with lots of attention to give him.
Dapple is a single boar. He is about a year old. He is a black and cream short hair guinea pig. He likes being held and loves having space to run around. Dapple is not sure he likes other guinea pigs, so he needs a home where he can stay as a single pig if needed.
Jasper is a big 3-pound cuddly boar. He is a black Abyssinian/Peruvian mix (long hair with rosettes/cowlicks). His age is not known but he is an adult and probably over 2 years old. He is easy to get out of the cage, and is a true lap pig. He would do well with a young boar.
Murphy and Boomer are a bonded pair of males. They are adult guinea pigs probably over 2 years old. Murphy is an agouti, red and white Abyssinian. Boomer is a tri-colored Peruvian. They are both easy to get out of the cage and love to be held. They must go to their new home together.
Calvin and Hobbes are two cute male guinea pigs that are full of personality. They must go to their new home together. Email Vicki for more information. www.JPGPR.com

The pigs are cute in the picture, but in real life they are so much fun. I'm lucky to have some real sweeties. I know if circumstances were different I would keep them all. They each have their cute little perks.
The past couple of weeks I haven't had anyone email or call about them besides people that were too far away and one that went to a breeder. Today I got 2 potential potential adopters. I have a great flyer that I plan on putting up to replace an old flyer that wasn't very good. Hopefully people will see that these pigs are the icing on the cake.
Bad boys, bad boys! Watcha gonna do? Watcha gonna when they come for you?
These two handsome brothers were actually named Bad Boys for the first few weeks after I got them. Now they are Calvin and Hobbes. These guys are not really bad, but they are squirrelly and independent.
If you want guinea pigs that will calmly sit on your lap for hours while you watch TV - these boys aren't it.
If you want guinea pigs that live for snuggles and cuddles - these boys aren't it.
However, if you're looking for a pet that will entertain you, make you smile, and help you forget about your crappy day - Calvin and Hobbes may be just the guinea pigs you're looking for.
If you want guinea pigs that are curious about what you're doing, will talk to each other and you, are very enthusiastic about treats - Calvin and Hobbes may be the right guinea pigs for you.
If you want guinea pigs that will provide lots of company, but you might not have time everyday to hold and play with them - Calvin and Hobbes might just be a perfect for you.
These brothers are cream colored Americans. They are identical twins, nearly impossible to tell apart. One pig (don't ask me which) is just slightly bigger than the other. Calvin and Hobbes are active, athletic, playful, inquisitive and busy. They are not quiet little cuddle-buns, there is just too much to see and do to sit still for very long. Like most brothers, Calvin and Hobbes occasionally argue. Sometimes there's some bickering and sparring. Sometimes there's even some humping (how rude!). Disagreements blow over quickly, and Calvin and Hobbes are soon back to patrolling their cage together and striving to impress the neighboring piggies with how handsome and macho they are.
Calvin and Hobbes are young, probably born in April 2004. No doubt they will mellow out and appreciate cuddling and smoochies more as they mature and get used to one-on-one human attention. Right now they tend to act like dorks when you take them out of the cage. Occasionally there may just be a tiny nip if they feel they're being taken advantage of. Surprisingly, both boys have been very good for baths and toenail trims. These are not guinea pigs for young children.
Calvin and Hobbes are stocky boys that love to run and popcorn, and gracefully leap up and down off their wooden house. They are currently in a 30" X 24" cage. It is NOT big enough for them. These two boys would love a large C & C pen, though they have hopped out of a 6" tub so I'm not positive whether the grid walls would keep them in. The brothers would thrive in a large cage/pen with tunnels, houses, toys to play with. They crave adventure and excitement - and are probably bored to tears here. Also, the more they have to do, the more enjoyable and interesting they are to watch.
Calvin and Hobbes are at Jack Pine Guinea Pig Rescue in Stacy, Minnesota. This is roughly an hours drive from the Twin Cities. For further information on our adoption process please visit the Adoption section at www.JPGPR.com. If you feel Calvin and Hobbes might be the right guinea pigs for you or if you have questions, please email Vicki at JPGPR@aol.com
Erin, Jasper is a sweetie pie. I am bringing Jeffy over to introduce them, and if all goes well Jasper will be coming to our house.
Yes, Allysse broke me down! She handed me the sweetest piggie and he took my heart right there. This should be fun seeing these two interact. Jeffy's nearly 6 months old and Jasper being 2-3 years old.
I'm sure all will go well with Jasper and Jeffrey.
Laverne and Shirley have a potential adopter, and I have a potential potential adopter in mind for Charles and Revel.
The new pen has been built and Jeffy was switched over and he's loving the extra room. He's had a busy night of exploring and rearranging things. I can't believe all the extra space Dayna's room seems to have, even with the bigger pen...and all it took was moving her bed a bit.
We are both excited about Jasper coming home with us. Everyone at work thinks he's adorable - I couldn't pass up sharing his pictures with my co-workers. Todd is easing up a little, we just don't discuss guinea pigs at the moment...he asked to give him some time to adjust - he was being such a poop. Oh well, we will love him and give him good care.
Potential Potential Potential adopters are people that haven't contacted me yet but are thinking of getting a cavy. Potential Potential adopters have contacted me and are awaiting my reply. Potential adopters are those that have passed the screening and are on their way to picking out their pigs. And then of course there are the adopters who have adopted a cavy, or two, or three...
I suppose there are better words to classify these people but for tonight that'll do.
The new cage arrangement sounds good. I'm looking forward to the big rumblestrutting kick off.
If all goes well I could (potentially) be down to 2 fosters in less than 10 days. Anyone care to count how many potentially's are in this post?
