Yes They are not illegal here... Our pet shops sell these cute guys but i would like to know who are hes/shes parents, sisters and brothers not just buy from a shop like my daily milk or bread... I think these kind on shops are not normal... If i would adopt my baby PD from this way I could not be sure that this animals mental health is normal.
What country do you live in? I know of captive breeders of prairie dogs in some countries, but am not sure where you are to help you. You are welcome to message me privately at [email protected] for more assistance in this area. I have many clients in various countries and help with caring for them properly in captivity.
