Gentle Ben is a polite, bashful boy pleading for a home where he will always be safe.
He is a giant guinea pig (sometimes referred to as "cuy", a species eaten in South America), about 3 years of age.
Gentle Ben likes people to sit by him peacefully and he squeals with delight each afternoon when he sees his big salads coming! A past ear infection has left him with a slight head tilt. Gentle Ben needed us due to his previous owners' financial hardship.
He is ready for adoption today in the Lovebugs Room at Nevada SPCA.
