Hello, my name is Dannielle. You all can call me Danni or Dannikins!
I live in North Carolina and attend college.
I want to start off by saying that I love Guinea Pigs. :heart: They're adorable, fun, they each have their own personalities and the cutest little faces.

On a more serious note, I should say that I do only own ONE piggie. Yes, judge me if you will.. I know that piggies are very social animals and may even feel safer with another friend by its side. BUT, at the time I didn't have the money, but on the bright side today starts my Spring break and guess what? I'M GETTING MY LITTLE GUY, ZEKE A FRIEND! Yes, I plan on getting the other from a breeder that lives two hours away but it will be totally worth it. (Yes the other piggie will be a male, just like my current one, Zeke) Also, I've done my research on how to introduce new piggies to others, so I think it will be a great experience.

My house has five bedrooms and I plan on dedicating one of the older ones just for my piggies. I am in the process on making my new C&C cage, WOO!! Excited about that to the max! But yes, all will work out and I plan on putting a lot of time, love and effort into giving my piggies the best life they could imagine.

So yes, that's about all I have to say, also...I love this website it has so much information and great photos!

P.S. As soon as I get my new digital camera I will be posting pictures of Zeke and his soon to be buddy, and my C&C cage, so keep an eye out for that!

Hope to make many friends here and share some great stories, thanks for taking the time to read this, it means a ton to me!
:optimist:

Welcome to the forum and the world of piggies! Your Zeke is very handsome.
So glad you have done your research and are giving your Zeke a great home.
If I could suggest just one thing. Please adopt a friend for Zeke instead of buying from a breeder.
There are so many male piggies that need a great home and would be a wonderful pal for Zeke.
We are here can help you find a shelter or thru Petfinders, Graigs list a pig to adopt.
That being said. Welcome and we are here for you and your piggies.

Thank you so much, I love a warm welcome! And thank you for being considerate, my little Zeke hasn't shown any signs of loneliness YET. But I'm sure he will become lonely, so I will look into adopting instead of buying from a breeder. I will look on Graigs list and try to wiggle my way out of the deal with the Breeder. Again, thank you!

My pleasure. Also, I just have a few questions... Since me and my boyfriend aren't really used to buying off the internet (We're old school) Could you help me on how it will all work out once I find the right friend for Zeke? I know that in my small town, we'd probably have to travel three hours to the nearest adoption center, I've been there before. But it was years ago when I was only a mere 10 year old!

Check out Pefinders.com. On the left is a list you put in small and furry or guinea pigs. then your zipcode. You may find some that are adoptable right in your area. At the very top of the page is find guinea pigs. that too may help find one closer. Also the very first section is adoptables. You may find one there. There may even be another shelter closer to you. Craigslist online. Your local Humane Society sometimes has them. Your local paper. You yourself can even post an as in your local paper. You may be surprised. In the adoptable section I do believe you can post you are looking for a male pigge. There is all kinds of options in finding a pig.

I'm on Petfinder.com right now, me and my boyfriend have seen two males in a city that's only a 20 minute drive, they're both gorgeous and looking into the description right now. Thank you for your help! Zeke is soon to have a play mate! :)
