A unique and special breed of hairless guinea pig lives life to the fullest by chowing down on some tasty grub while relaxing with his dog friends.
Baldness is known to cause depression and a lack of confidence in some men, but for hairless wonder Pim, a lack of fur hasn’t stop him from living his life to the fullest.
Adorable little Pim is a unique breed of guinea pig, commonly known as skinny pig, with fur only growing on the feet, legs and muzzles, while the rest of the body remains completely bald like a new-born baby.
But Pim hasn’t allowed a lack of luscious locks get in the way of his fun, making friends with Rox the Miniature Pinscher, at home with owner, Jessica Oliveira Pires in Schiedam, The Netherlands.
Jessica said: “Pim is great friends with the dogs.
“They love him so much and every time Pim gets close, they get extremely excited.”
Having owned Pim since he was six weeks old, Jessica has loved, fed and cared for Pim for the past two and a half years, and the novelty of owning such a cute creature still hasn’t worn off.
Jessica said: “Pim is the cutest when he lays in my arms or on my chest to cuddle.
“Pim does funny things all the time. For example, every morning when I wake up, I’ll give him a vitamin C tablet.
“Pim will just sit in the corner waiting for his tablet making noises to make sure I don’t forget it.”
