Could you not question the pet shop and ask them whether he does get hay and how come he is on his own etc?

Its up to you whether you buy him or not, nobody here can really say otherwise.

If you brought him then what would you do if he looks lonely? would you buy another or have him neutered?

Hi,

It is hard when you see a guinea pig in a pet shop especially if it is alone:(
The only trouble is when you buy the guinea pig they will replace this one with another and the cycle remains.

You would have to put another in with hims company:))

If lulu's pup is male then he would be able to be bonded and put with the male one you have your eye on but make sure he is a male first:))

I can't go in pet shops that sell animals now :(

The only thing I would say to take into consideration (I'm not sure if someone else has said - I haven't read the whole thread) is that if you buy him then they will just get another one to replace him :(
