Is there such a thing as a dwarf guinea pig? My friend just said there was, but I've never seen one before.

I've heard of dwarf rabbits, but not guinea pigs.

No, there's no such thing. You get small pigs (something usually happened in early life to keep them this way, see Merry's story here) and big pigs. But there's no dwarf pigs.

I have heard of dwarf hamsters and rabbits, but no guinea pigs.

Thanks for telling us, daftscotslass! And the guineas on that page look very sweet. Merry is so tiny!

She's about half the size of a full grown female but only because she was bred when she was a baby herself as well as scurvy and various other problems. She is a real livewire now as I've been lucky enough to meet her when I picked up my last pig from the rescue.

Well, she's cute. It's great that she's alright now!
