Could anyone offer my piggie a home?

Cookie is a female, born in january this year, she's medium brown and caramel, and has a rosetted coat, (if that's the right term, like lots of crowns in her hair iykwim?)

I had her and her sister in march but coco died suddenly a few months ago and no matter what we try she will not take to the other piggies at all, has turned a bit aggressive towards them. However she is fine with people, a little skittish to get bold of but once you've got her loves a fuss and cuddle, love exploring outside her hutch etc,

I'd love to keep her but I don't have a permeant place to keep her separate from the other pigs she will no longer accept. If anyone could offer her a good home as a solo piggie I live in the west midlands in Walsall, my dh has said he would drop her off if local if that's any help?

Btw Can't upload pics at mo as computer Down. So stuck on phone

Aw BabyDubs sad

I can't offer a home - our two sows seem really settled and I don't want to upset the balance. However, RSPCA Walsall seem really clued up and single sows seem really rare (and in demand) - surely they'd take her in and then be able to find a properly vetted home really quickly? They might even be able to match her up with a neutered boar that she gets on with to have some piggie company smile

Alternatively, it's worth posting here: http://www.theguineapigforum.co.uk/index.php - there's a good few members in West Mids area who would be able to give a good home I'm sure.

Thanks rubberduck, i didnt realise she would be in demand, that feels a bit better. Ill call rspca then, was worried about her being put down becasue she wont mix but that sounds more hopeful smile thankyou

I think boars are much harder to home AND to pair up (I know a lot of rescues offer boar dating to help this) - I know several people have been looking for a rescue sow and have had trouble.

There's also a good rescue in Redditch that I know of - don't know if that's a bit far for you though?
