Can you tell me what this is?

My friend recently gave me a pet rodent, but I'm not sure what it is. Can someone identify it for me? Thanks for any help!

I know, it wouldn't let me post a link so I had to include spaces in the http part. I think it's a gerbil, but I'm not sure.

Definitely a gerbil. They do best in pairs or groups so consider getting him/her a same-sex buddy .

I'll have to ask my parents I'm fairly new to owning rodents. I once had a dwarf hamster, but that was long ago. This gerbil is rather skittish (I named him Shepard, by the way) so I was wondering the best way to care for him. Any tips?
