Capybara is as sweet as sugar! She is a 3-month old Teddy Bear Guinea Pig who lived with other female guinea pigs in her previous home. She has a meek, soft demeanor, and once she gets to know you is a big snuggle bug. She has not lived with children previously, but with proper, gentle introduction would be a great pet for children in a home that is not too chaotic. She could also live with other guinea pig savvy pets.

Guinea pigs are social animals, and a lot of them prefer to live with other guinea pig friends, but this differs from pig to pig. Capybara could be housed as either a solo pig, or live with other female guinea pigs. As most pigs are, Capy is shy to strangers in the beginning, so you will need to take it slow with her. When she comes out of her shell she has the most kind & tender personality. If you are looking for a new little friend to add to your home, schedule a day to come in and meet this tiny sweetheart!
