Hello everyone, I figured I would introduce myself quickly. Feel free to call me Ren if you see me floating about and yes, I am a newbie to piggies but phew, I can't tell you how glad I am to have stumbled upon this website and forum. Just reading through everything has helped to show me where I can improve on things but also what I am doing right with my guinea. I only recently got my first piggy on the 1st of June. He is a male of black and brown color with a ridge going from his head to his butt ending in what I suppose would be a rosette. He's been a delight to have and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us. ^.^

Welcome to GPC. If it's only one ridge, and goes down the middle, he could be a ridgeback. Either way, would love to see pics. He sounds adorable.

edit: I just had to add this...in the pictures the floor he is on is not my carpet it is his fleece...or my pants...depends on the picture. :D

One more edit...It's a bit difficult to see in the pictures because his ridge becomes less noticeable once it reaches his neck but it is there. Obviously it's a lot more obvious on his back/butt. :P

Wow welcome to the group. Your piggy sure is a cutie pie. I could just snuggle him all day. As someone stated above I think it's called a ridgeback. But he is beautiful. I also wanted to just ask where you got your fleece. That is so perky and cute. I got all excited for a minute and thought they were those carpet squares, because we are renovating and Im making the piggy rooms bigger. Have you thought of giving him a piggy friend yet? There is rescues all over with great pigs that could make him happy. Pigs are herd animals and love to be with other piggies. I know personally I've seen such a great change for the good with my piggies since adding cagemates.
Good luck with him. Your in the best spot for learning everything you need to know about your piggy. Keep the pigtures comming!:)
