Our Foundation Hamsters
If you happen to have hamsters and pedigrees from our foundational lines, you can look below to find pictures of the hamsters that date back to 2011. Hover over each hamster's picture to pull up their names. Most of them are listed in alphabetical order. Not every hamster we bred is on here, but quite a few are included. Our favorites were Merlin, Hamlet, Meadow and Valley.
Pearl was a black-eyed cream hamster who dates back to the 90's. She was super sweet and had some of our first (undocumented) litters. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of her. She is who inspired the name in addition to Hamlet, who sired the first litter of pups in which we have pictures and records.
***Please note that many of these hamsters and subsequent pictures were taken before any ethical guidelines were established. The wheels and square footage of enclosures were not up to the ethical standard of today. Thankfully, research and other ethical breeders have taught us better!
