Female Russian Dwarf Hamster in Hook


This is Peony, she's an absolutely beautiful Russian Dwarf hamster. 10 weeks old as of 29.11.21.

She's had a rough start in life. Peony's mum was surrendered to a rescue and unknowing to them at the time, she had some babies hidden away under 2 inches of mouldy substrate. Peony was with the rescue that took her mum until recently but due to being over capacity we gave Peony a foster home with us while she looks for her forever family.

The previous rescue has done a great job with her although she does need more socialising to get her used to hands. She can be stoked in the cage and is very inquisitive about what's going on around her. She takes treats from your hand and can be lifted out for a cuddle but we have had the occasional nip from her as she's still getting used to handling, something we will continue to work on with her while she's with us.

Peony is now looking for a forever family who will love and spoilt her the way she deserves. She will need a cage that's at least 80x50cm however bigger is always better. She need's a 28cm wheel, sand bath and appropriate food and substrate. Peony comes out of her hide several times through the day to say a little hello but due to her little nips we feel Peony would be best suited to a household without young children. She's a sociable little girl and would benefit from a home that has the time to handle her regularly and give her some free roam time daily.

If you would like to register your interest in giving Peony a forever home please get in touch.
