New to the World of Guinea Pigs...

So recently one of our neighbors found a guinea pig... on their porch. It's doing fine now but it was pretty skinny when we found it but looks otherwise healthy but I'm starting to believe it may be blind in one eye... I'm getting help from my sister who has been a guinea pig owner for over 10years and I'm trying to find someone who will take this guinea becuz I DO NOT DO guinea pigs. Don't ask.
But ok, here's the main thing, he climbs stairs, has a super pointy nose.... like a RAT... Much more pointy than a regular guinea, he has unique colors, and he literally walks on his tip-toes.... WTF?

I do but I don't think it'd matter now... the poor thing passed away late last week... i don't know what was wrong with her but she went really fast...
she was doing just fine, eating everything, drinking... i went to check on her and her back legs were paralyzed, her breathing was labored, her eyes sunken, and her she couldn't maintain body temperature... sadly, i knew there was nothing that could be done for her... she died within 20minutes of me finding her that way... i have no idea what was wrong with her i miss the poor thing already...

Rescue it from a local shelter. Trust me, you can find them if you look around.

Petco some times offers Guinea pigs for adoption.
