Snow White may have had her seven dwarfs. But they don’t compare at all to the four dwarfs we’re about to discuss in this category. And no their names aren’t even near Dopey, Doc, Happy, Sleepy, Sneezy . . . well you get the idea.
What we’re talking about here is a delightful “pocket pet.” A small little furry creature that’ll win your heart the moment you take a look at him: The dwarf hamster.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the dwarf hamster, you may be a little surprised that there are a variety of hamster out there that’s even smaller than the Syrian or Golden Hamster.
A Syrian hamster is about eight inches in length – a little guy in his own right by any definition. So just how small does a hamster have to be to be thought of as a dwarf.
These guys get no bigger than four inches in length. They’re actually so small that they can climb right through the spaces between a regular wire hamster cage!
Now that’s tiny! But the love and delight they’ll provide your family is huge. If you’ve been considering adding a pet to your family, but just don’t have the room for a dog or even the space for a cat and accompanying litter box, consider the addition of a dwarf hamster to your family.
But we’ll warn you right now: While they’re small, they are not without their needs, just like any living pet. You’ll find though that spending time caring for these guys, playing and interacting with them will provide you with some of the best moments of your day!
