Pet Guinea Pigs


Guinea Pigs Uncovered.

Though there many breeds of Guinea pig, only a few breeds are commonly found off the show table as pets. The short hair, Abyssinian, Peruvian and Sheltie (aka Silkie) breeds are those most frequently seen as pets, and the former three are the core breeds in the history of the competitive showing of Guinea pigs. In addition to their standard form, nearly all breeds come in a Satin variant. Satins, due to their hollow hair shafts, possess coats of a special gloss and shine.
