Pet of the Week — Duke

HARTFORD -- Duke is a nine-month-old Guinea Pig

The Guinea Pig, also called a cavy, is one popular pet! They are relatively easy to care for, docile and are responsive to kind and gentle handling. When handled correctly, guinea pigs enjoy being picked up and carried. They are curious critters and enjoy exploring, especially when on familiar territory.
