Teddy is an adorable, talkative, active and fun, one-year-old, male tri-color Abyssinian guinea pig looking for a loving guardian.
Teddy came to Friends of Petraits Rescue when his human became too busy with work to take care of her pets. He lived with two other guinea pigs but they had to be separated due to aggression. He poor little ears are chewed down to nubs.
He hasn’t lived with other guinea pigs in the same cage since he was young, but he loves chatting with the guinea pigs through the bars of his cage.
Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited Timothy and Orchard hays; a handful of guinea pig pellets, and fresh vegetables including romaine, red leaf and green leaf lettuces, cilantro, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, etc. Guinea pigs, just like humans, can’t manufacture their own vitamin C, so they need to supplement with red pepper and many other vitamin C-rich foods. He LOVES his fresh foods and begs for them!

He would love a home with people who will handle him daily, keep him well fed, and keep his habitat nice and clean.
