So these two girls were at my local humane society. Our humane society rarely had guinea pigs, mostly just cats and dog. If they do get piggies they usually get adopted right away. These gorgeous girls were there over a week and no one wanted them. We initially just went to visit them and drop them off a care package. Because we already had 4 piggies we hesitant to take on 2 more. After a few days of thinking we couldn’t bare the thought of them potentially going to another bad home. They don’t have names yet but they sure are adorable. They look like they are absynian and some sort of long hair mix.
They are pretty scared and shy right now. Better pictures to come in the future when they adjust.

They are beautiful.
Well done for taking them on.
Will you integrate them into a larger group or keep them as a pair?
Either way it sounds like they have landed on their feet with you!

I’m not sure yet. My two males aren’t neutered so the easiest option would be to put them my my 2 female pair. I’m going to wait until they adjust for awhile and get a feel for their personalities. Right now they are just afraid of everything lol.

Wilma and Quinn

They have names now :D The orange and white one is Wilma. I don’t know if any one watches the guinea pig channel on You Tube called “Little Adventures”, but she had a pig named Wilma that passed away. That were we got the name. The black, orange and white one is named Quinn. We just liked Quinn, no meaning behind the name lol.

Also would recommend Little Adventures on YouTube. Lots of great guineapig videos.
