Here's Tees Valley Guinea Pig Rescue's latest guest, Jemima. She arrived on Tuesday and has been very shy. She weighed-in at just 662g which is on the light side if her age is 2 to 3 years old but I'm waiting for all her details as I picked her up from her former owner's place of work & she wasn't there when I arrived. Am I right in believing that she's a Golden Acouti? I'm not well up on identifying different breeds.



And here's a picture of her with Aldous in next run to give you a better idea of her size:

Wow she's stunning. I would say she is a satin too but not sure on the colour.

What a stunner :love: She is gorgeous mate. How is the rescue going?
It's ticking along nicely thanks Lee. 5 cages in place at present but only 3 in use. Of the first 4 piggies who came last month, 3 were rehomed last Friday & Saturday. There was a bit of a health alert with the 4th boy Aldous but he seems to be eating a bit more now so he'll be back up for adoption soon I hope though he can't be with a female till February 19th. Jemima will be offered for adoption on February 10th & the 2 boys who came in last Friday & were neutered on Monday will offered as a pair first but if not & I get 2 people wanting companions for berived sows & would consider rehoming them that way but only if homes could be found for both at the same time. It's a bit of a juggling act with re-homing them

She looks like a very stunning golden satin indeed! You will need to be careful when rehoming her even though satin disease (osteodystrophy) is no longer quite such an issue as only a few years ago.

Thanks for letting me know about osteodystophy @Wiebke could you possibly give me anymore info or good links on this subject x
