Prairie dogs are not ground squirrels
I had two prairie dogs, but one passed away. As they are not for sale anymore, and I wanted my remaining prairie to have companionship, I looked into getting (and got) 2 richardson ground squirrels. I was told by several contacts (including a breeder) that they would get along, but THEY DO NOT. The squirrels are much more aggressive, and territorial, and frighten my poor girlie pd. I can't put them together ! Luckily I have enough room to do this, but it isn't what I had hoped for. They are okay with me, but could care less about being petted, and even fight with each other alot (not anything hurtful, just alot of noise making)
Does anyone have any advice? The whole point of getting them was for my pd, but it is NOT working out, and I don't know what to do.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
