Species: Guinea Pig
Sex: Male (neutered)
Age: Unknown, guesstimate 18 months
Status: Available for bonding from 27th Sept
Bear came into our care from a large scale hoarding/backyard breeder situation. He is very timid, but is slowly coming out of his shell. Like many guinea pigs, he does not like being handled or touched but this may improve over time. He would make a really rewarding companion for someone with patience and understanding.
We had Bear castrated on 16th August, so he is now ready to bond with one or more sows. We are happy to carry out intros for adopters here at the rescue.
Housing requirements: Bear is currently living indoors so will need an indoor home (at least until next spring/summer). For a pair of guinea pigs, we require a minimum of 20 sq ft of space on one level, more for larger groups.
