Sadly, I have to find a home to place my beloved Bob in. I rescued him from abusive care in a classroom environment where he was left alone for many days in a very small, dirty cage and extremely poor nutrition. I've had him for a couple of years but, being a college student now, my hands are tied and my parents are no longer able to provide him with care as I am at home very infrequently.
He is, by my math, a little over three years old. He is a handsome black trddy with an incredibly mellow personality. He is unphased by being handled or cared for, but is very active if you provide him with the space.
He has lived alone, unfortunately, but I have tried my hardest to give him a healthy living environment and a lot of interaction.
Bob will be moving in with his cage and supplies. His cage is a 2x3 C&C with a wire shelf lid, a food bowl, a water bottle, a felt forest, bedding, and orchard grass. He will come with his remaining orchard grass (~5 lbs) and Oxbow pellets. I insist that Bob remain with his supplies-- I also have lots of extra grids if you wish to expand his cage. I will not home him without his supplies.
Attached are some photos of my boy. He isn't too young but he's still my healthy little boy. I will miss him dearly and hope that he finds a loving forever home and an owner that he will make as happy as he has made me.

But before that, in the four years I was at high school, that teacher lost over 7 animals. They were in such HORRIBLE states...and two of these I cared for as best as I could, but they passed long before they should have. This one was supposed to be different and it breaks my heart that I have to rehome him, but the best thing I can do now is try and make sure he gets a good final home.
Bob is still up for adoption...we've received no interest but please, if anyone is or knows anyone else who is looking for the calmest, most handsome lad in the whole world, he is it. He's very tolerant and mellow about handling and even getting his nails trimmed. But make no mistake, this isn't freezing of fear, he's still an active, bouncy, sweet boy and I know he could make someone else very happy if they gave him a chance.
So please if anyone knows someone who is looking for a guinea pig like him, please refer them here. I'm going to post this in other places too, and I just hope someone responds.

Can I ask if Bob actually enjoys being petted? Brillo would come running to be petted. I was curious if that was a teddy trait or just Brillo's personality.
