Hi. My name is Frodo. I am around three years old and on the smaller side for a guinea pig. I currently live alone in my cage and I seem to be pretty happy with that. I have been introduced to two other male guinea pigs and it definitely wasn't a love connection. I may be able to get along with a young guinea pig if he is submissive and much more open to me being the alpha. Otherwise I am fine on my own. I feel safest in covered areas of my cage and inside my igloo. I don't enjoy being picked up but love to be hand fed treats from your hand. My foster has been teaching me that human hands aren't scary and I am learning to trust her more each day. She has been gaining my trust by hand feeding me and petting me gently on my check and back. My favorite treats are strawberry tops, green leaf lettuce, and parsley. I would do best with older, more respectful children because it takes me time to trust people. If I sound like I would be a good fit for what you are looking for, please fill out an application and my foster mom will be in touch with you.
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.
