Guinea pig with the wow factor

Those big appealing eyes, that unusual sleek, hairless hide – Dalton is a cute little guy who seems to have people saying “awwww!” as soon as he peeks inquisitively from his nice warm bed.

He’s currently tucked up at the SPCA’s rescue and rehoming centre, but really needs a permanent home.

Centre manager Peter Fleming said, “Dalton is looking for a home where he will be kept indoors.

“Ideally he would prefer an experienced owner. As he is hairless, his diet and living conditions will need to be monitored to ensure his bodyheat is kept at the right temperature.

“His owner will also need to ensure his skin is kept in a healthy condition.”
