Beryl & Marion

Our lovely pair of pigs Beryl and Marion are sadly back up for adoption. The girls did not get on with their new male partner in a recent potential home, so we are ideally looking for a home for them just as a pair where they can be independent ladies!
 
Beryl & Marion originally came into our care back in December when they were part of a large rescue of pigs from a home where breeding was out of control. Marion was in the early stages of pregnancy when we got her and reared her babies in a foster home (the 3 babies have now been rehomed). Both girls are quite young, around 1 year old now, and they love a good chat and will greet visitors noisily.
Beryl is black and white and has a smooth coat. She is definitely the boss of the two and is much more cheeky than Marion. Beryl loves her food and is usually at the front of the cage telling you that she requires a snack. Beryl doesn’t enjoy being picked up, as she hasn’t been used to this from an early age, and squeals like mad when her feet are off the ground – it becomes quite apparently how they earned the name “pig”. She will happily take an offering of veggies out your hand.
 
Marion is mostly black, but has some ginger markings, and is an Abyssinian guinea pig. She has a huge crest on her back and, to be honest, her bum does look big in this! Marion has increased in confidence since being in our care. We see much more of her cheeky face these days, but she can still be quite jumpy. Marion likes to drag her food into her shelter and eat in private. Like Beryl, she wasn’t handled much in her first home so she’s not accustomed to be picked up, but once you’ve got her makes much less of a fuss than Beryl.
 
The girls are probably best suited to a home with experienced guinea pig handlers. We recommend an indoor C&C set up for all our piggies as they provide lots of space and are cheaper than store bought cages (see our housing guide for more info). Min. size housing for two guinea pigs is 5x2ft or 4x2 c and c grids but bigger is better.
