Benny is a handsome, calico-colored, 1-year old American guinea pig. He has gentle manners and is shy to new faces, but once he gets to know you he loves to cuddle up on your chest and receive loving kisses on the nose. He is a solo guy and doesn’t get along with other guinea pigs. He does however, get along with cats as long as they are pig friendly and accepting!

In his previous home he lived with cats & dogs and would even snuggle next to his feline friend!! He gets along with children, as long as they can respect that loud noises and sudden movements can be scary for a pig. Here at the shelter he enjoys solving puzzles with his favorite veggies hidden inside. His ideal home would be a peaceful, calm household.
