Merlin is a staff favorite, and when you meet him, you’ll know why!  This little guy is so cute and personable, plus he sleeps in a special giraffe bed that will go home with him!  Guinea pigs like Merlin need a spacious habitat filled with hiding and happing spots, things to climb on, safe wood to chew and guinea pig toys.  Their diets consist of grass hay and small amounts of timothy pellets.  They love red pepper, kale, mustard greens, dandelion greens and other leafy greens.  When Merlin sees these snacks headed his way, he’ll let out a loud “wheeeeet wheeeeeet!” just for you.  Come meet him at our Springfield Adoption Center.
