Basil is Shy
Meet the latest Sharon Patch Pet of the Week.
‹ Back to Article
Basil is mainly white with a little beige markings. White piggies struggle to find families to adopt them. If you have considered adding a guinea pig to your family and want to rescue one, Basil would be so happy to meet you. His former owner had multiple guinea pigs and was no longer able to care for them.
Basil is a very cute and nice guinea pig. He is about 1 or 2 years old.
Guinea pigs need a clean cage, a healthy diet including hay, fresh vegetables and a little treat of fruit or carrot.
Basil enjoys guinea pig chew toys. He is a good pig and never bites, but he is shy. He will be happiest in a home with a family who understands that being picked up and held is very scary for him.
Basil is mainly white with a little beige markings. White guinea pigs struggle to find families to adopt them. His former owner had multiple guinea pigs and was no longer able to care for them. Basil was always housed separately and appears to be perfectly content as a single guinea pig.
