Skinny Pigs

Does anyone here have a hairless guinea pig? I wanted to get one a while back but I don't know much about them. Is it cruel to breed an animal to have no hair, or are they naturally like that? Would one wear a little sweater? If you post pictures of them, is that considered a nude photo?

i saw skinny pigs in a pet shop while i was in Canada last summer - they look sorta strange. The person in the shop said it was a form of genetic modification that was used to make them hairless but i'm not 100% sure about this, I also heard they dont live as long as 'normal' piggies but again i'm not sure about that either.
