    What my friends at OHS say about me:

    • Hay, fresh veggies and daily vitamin C are they key things to keep me healthy!
    • A solid bottom cage with soft pet bedding will be the perfect home for me!
    • Guinea Pigs may be little, but we need lots of space to get enough exercise and a cage with at least 4 square feet per pig is best!
    • I will need wood blocks to chew on to keep my teeth healthy!
    • I am a bit scared of being held still and it may take some time for me to warm up to my new humans. I will need a patient and understanding person that will allow me to go at my own pace.
    • Fear and Anxiety: I can be worried about new people, new surroundings and touch. I prefer to take things at my own pace and will need to go home to a calm environment.

    The type of home I’m looking for:

    • I would flourish in a calm environment and a low-traffic home with no small children
    • I may do best as the only piggie in my enclosure. I was bullied by a previous pig friend and was scared of a pig they tried to match me with in the shelter.
