Here are a few pictures of Twinkle Toes. I was hoping someone could tell me what breed she may be.
We adopted her a month ago. She is about 12 weeks old in the pictures.
As you can see she has longish hair. It had been chewed back quite a bit by another Guinea Pig (you can see that in the bottom left picture) but is growing out now that she has a cage of her own.
Possibly a Silkie? I'm just guessing here.
Thanks for your help.

wow i think dagwell is a silkee! He's got fur that goes like that length and direction and such. Does that mean he's a long haired piggy?

He is a long haired pig if you have to trim his hair. If he looks like the one in the pic than he is probably a silkie.

Nope, silkies are long-haired by definition. So, unless you give the cavy a haircut, nope. :)

She said it was being barbered by another pig. Looks a little like Scooter's hair after a haircut and without the crest.
