    We have no clue what breed Kimbur is!

    We have six guinea pigs (way more than we bargained for, but so worth it<3). We have the two girls who are American Smooths, then Smudge is a male American Smooth.
    Then Quasi who is an Abyssinian, and Oogie Boogie who is a brindle Aby.
    Then we have Kimbur, who is cagemates with Smudge because they were at the petstore together (yes, I already know about buying guinea pig from pet stores, no I don't plan on doing it again, and no we did not know at the time, but we do now, so PLEASE save the lectures for someone who doesn't know), the only thing is Kimbur is larger, MUCH larger, his fur is coarser than the others, and he sits up like a baby sitting up from crawling.
    He's jus different, but we love him no matter what! We would jus like to know what breed he is.
    Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Re: We have no clue what breed Kimbur is!

    Just a guess: Agouti / Dal mix?

    His marks are Dalmation to a TEE, but coloring is Silver Agouti!

    He's so calm and gentle too! He's my little sister's, but she barely takes care of him. Mother and I do all the cleaning and most of the cuddling.
    We call him the hedgehog/rabbit/gofer/porchupine/guinea pig mix xD

    I think I'm gonna have to agree. From pictures I've seen on Google, they're almost identical.
    Thanks a ton! Kimbur says "wheeeek!"

    His breed is a standard American Shorthair, but his markings are dalmation/roan.

    Why yes The breed is an American, but i think the coloring is what people were interested about. One of it's parents was probably a Dalmatian and the other a Silver Agouti... but it's not a Dal or a Roan, it would just be a Silver Agouti and White Broken (there's just a lot of run and drag in the fur so the patches don't look as clean cut.) Though it probably has some weird genetics like a Dal.

    Since at g-pig shows a lot of times at the end a truck will come and breeders will sell their cull at very low prices to someone and load them all in the truck and they then get sent to pet stores. When I go to a pet store sometimes I can tell what the breeder was attempting to do, and why they got rid of the pig Dalmatian breeders also know what you can't breed a Dal to a Dal (for the same reason you can't breed a roan to a roan.) So they usually breed them to Blacks or Chocolates. I think what happened to your pig was a breeder wondered what would happen if they used a Silver Agouti instead of a Black or Chocolate... and wasn't happy with the result so it ended up in the pet store.
    But he's a gorgeous pig!! I'm glad you have him

    That's what I'm thinking Though he has a bit more brindling then a regular Dal

    oh no, it's 100% American Teddies have very distinctive short, standing up straight, rough fur, and many times as much smaller, flatter nose.
