Successfully Adopting Your Dwarf Hammy

How are you and your Dwarf Hamster?
(Do you have one yet?)

If not, I hope you've been thinking of appropriate names.
Today is all about finding the healthiest - and consequently
- the happiest dwarf hamsters!

As I mentioned in the first e-mail, although the pet store
is a popular place to adopt a dwarf hamster, it may not be
the best. Don't discount several other very good sources of

The first is the classified ads of your local newspaper.
You just may find a dwarf hamster that needs a loving home.
Of course, there is one disadvantage in this. You don't
know his "heritage" or how he's been treated. So, if you
take this route to adoption, don't be shy about asking lots
of questions.

What type of questions, you ask? Well, for starters, why
the family has decided it needs to find him another home.
Also, ask what type of personality this little dwarf
has . . . whether he nips . . . and also about what he's
been being fed and what his needs are when it comes to daily

You can always search the internet for a good dwarf hamster,
as well. You may not realize this, but you can adopt a
great dwarf hamster from a professional breeder. Just like
you'd go to a dog breeder for a purebred canine, you go to a
dwarf hamster breeder to find a quality purebred hamster.

And there are definite advantages to this. In this way,
you'll know not only the exact birthday of your little pet,
but you also know more about his parents. And that's not
just for social reasons.

If you know about his parents, then you have a heads up on
what potential health problems may creep up on him - or if
you can expect him to live a healthy life.

And if you ever decide you want to breed hamsters yourself,
then you have a much better idea of what to expect the
offspring to look like, what their colors may be, and what
their temperament might be, as well.

Don't think you have any dwarf hamster breeders in your area?
You may not, but then again, how often have you actually
searched for this specialized profession?

You may want to start your search at a county fair or even a
state fair. Many times, dwarf hamsters are shown there -
along with the rabbits, miniature horses and other animals.

And if you can't find what you're looking for there, you can
certainly ask around. Someone certainly can help point you
in the proper direction.

Don't give up on your hunt for the perfect dwarf hamster!
You'll find him!

Anyway - might I kindly enlist your support for my ongoing
Dwarf Hamster research by asking you to take one more look
at my book "The Complete Guide to Dwarf Hamster Care"? It's
everything you need to know about dwarf hamsters in one
place! (If you like these tips you're going to LOVE the

All The Best,
