    At A Complete Loss!

    Hello! However this is not my first set of guinea pigs, this is my first rescue set! Long story short I've recently rescued 3 boars from a very neglectful home.

    When Should I Handle My Pigs?

    Does My Piggie Hate Me?

    i have 2 baby boars that i got about 3 weeks ago. the more dominant boar lets me stroke him while hes eating, on my lap, out for floor time etc and he is very easy to get a hold of and pick up. to get to this point ive tried every piggie taming tip out there and it's definitely paid off for him...
