Degus in Texas

I have been searching everywhere for degus in Texas. I plan on getting them next Fall. I was wondering if anyone knew of a person who breeds them? Or even a store where I could go and view them. (I am usually suspicious of pet stores and how they tend their animals)

I'm open to adopting a pair if young. Of course, I will do that closer to next August.

If anyone can help, that would be wonderful.

I don't know of any breeders there but it might help to list where you are in TX .

Have you tried Petfinder?

Your location would help us. My sister got hers from an exotic pet store and there might be one near houston that sells them. but I am unsure of breeders in this area. If you are around my area I can forward the link to a few exotic stores

I did attempt to use petfinders but there were none in Texas.

I'm in the Dallas area and I would love a list of some exotic pet stores you mentioned.

That will be fine. I don't think I'll be able to find any anywhere else.

heres the exotic petstore's website . I never been here but I have heard alot about them and that they can order special animals for people if they don't have any.

this is a breeder list I pulled up I have no resources on wether they are decent breeders or not. I just did a quick search.

http://www.degus.com/breeders.html

I cant seem to locate the other exotic store near us but I'll ask my husband tonight when he gets off of work.
