Pickles is a sweet guinea pig who can get a bit nervous around small children so he may be more comfortable in a home with older, guinea pig savy children. He is incredibly curious and enjoys a good head scratch! Pickles may be able to be introduced to a friend given the time and a good match.
Guinea pigs can make wonderful pets! They are very social creatures which means that they generally need at least one companion! Of course guinea pigs should only be kept with other piggies of the same sex. A pair of guinea pigs needs at minimum 10.5 sq. feet of cage space, or roughly 30" x 50" with a solid bottom, but more room is always encouraged! Guinea pigs can be quite noisy which can be lovely as long as you are expecting it!
