~ To the Palace of Beautiful Hairless Guinea Pigs ~
Hairless Hilltop Hunks is located an hour from the St. Louis area. I am a breeder of two very rare types of Hairless Guinea Pigs. One known as a Skinny Pig and the other known as the Baldwin Guinea Pig. Skinny pigs still have a little bit of fuzz on their noses and feet while Baldwins are completely hairless and the rarest of all Guinea Pigs. I concentrate on improving both breeds by breeding back to pure bred, pedigreed, American Guinea Pigs. It improves their immune systems while creating a large breed of hairless Guinea Pigs. I breed for hardiness, hefty bodies, great temperament, limited fuzz, cute short noses, and beautiful color.
I believe in keeping the genetic line different which means I have purchased my line of Hairless Guinea Pigs from 8 different states. I never keep several babies from one litter so that my genetic line is always different and I only keep the best of the best. I have sold babies all over the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. Whether you want a hairless guinea pig for breeding or a pet, my line will not let you down.
I have been breeding and raising cavies for 15 years. I would of never thought that I would of had so many Guinea Pigs when I was so young. My mother is one of those types who believes in doing what you love and that is exactly what I did. I was only in grade school when I began gained a wide range of knowledge on the breed and started raising American Guinea Pigs.
One day while browsing the internet I came across the two breeds that I focus on currently.
In March 2009, I created Natalie's Skinny Pigs which has now changed to Hairless Hilltop Hunks, where I have focused my efforts on raising not only gorgeous skinny pigs, but I started my very own line of Dalmatian Skinny Pigs.
Then in 2017 I became the ONLY breeder of Polydactyl Skinny Pigs that came from a Cuy line.
I have 10 cages that are 5 x 2 feet and more are always in the making.
I can't put in plain words what its like to own a Hairless Guinea Pig but I can tell you that its an addiction and you won't be able to only get one. Its hard to find breeders of any breed who actually care about the health and well being of the animals they are breeding. I can tell you that in many ways my cavies are cared for exceptionally well and we are always doing updates to the piggie room to make sure they are all very healthy.
