Elmer (bonded To Harry)
Smooth Hair * Male * 1 Years Old
Harry and Elmer are a bonded pair of guinea pigs that were surrendered to OMHS when their previous home was no longer able to care for them. Harry and Elmer are the perfect little duo.
Harry is "the brains" of the operation, where Elmer is "the brawns". Harry is the more outgoing and bold one, especially when it comes to food. He loves lettuce and will approach you if you have treats with little squeaks. He is is a smart and clever little thing. He has no problem pushing things out of the way to find his new path. He figures out puzzle toys and loves to dig through his hay for the perfect piece.
Elmer typically approaches things in a more physical way. He will pull the whole food bowl towards his hut so that he can snack while hanging out in his favourite spot. He is the more shy of the two and does feel more comfortable in his hut, especially when first getting to know you. He typically lets his brother take the lead and follows after.
Both pigs love their floor time and to get some of their energy out. They loves to run through their tunnels and their enrichment toys. They aren't super fixated on chewing sticks so it is important that they have other items to chew on for their teeth. The particularly love empty paper towel or toilet paper rolls with hay inserted in them.
Elmer and Harry have been patiently waiting for their forever home for quite some time. They would do best with someone who has owned Guinea Pigs before and has a lot of time and patience to help them come out of their shell.
