I'm just curious and thought I would ask for some opinions. My boy Thorne is 10 weeks old and these are up to date pictures. I bought him and 3 girls when they were about 3 weeks old from a lady who was totally new to guinea pigs and she said they were all abyssinians but a week after I brought the babies home, she was offering me the adult guinea pigs and sent pictures. She had 3 sows and one boar. Two of her sows and the boar looked like abys to me but she had a black and white female that Thorne looks a lot like that has the long coat and really doesn't look like there are any rosettes. I was thinking maybe he's an aby mixed with peruvian. Anyway, I'd like to hear what you think. Thanks in advance. C:

My Guinea pig Apple looks a lot like yours. I would agree an Abyssinian-Peruvian mix. I’ve heard them being called Shebas or Sheba Mini Yaks before. I had another Guinea pig Caramel who was also an aby-Peruvian. The two breeds can make some really cute mixes and Thorne is super adorable.

I'm not sure what breed, but his fur bears a striking resemblance to my boy Simon. Simon was a Lunkarya which Thorne isn't but the pattern on his head is similar.

That said, Thorne is adorable! Makes me wanna consider pignapping!
