Hi! I have two (adorable) guinea pigs and am thinking of getting a dog. However I have heard many horrific stories where a dog has gotten into a piggie’s cage and eaten them. On the other hand, I’ve heard of dogs that actually care for guinea pigs. So, what type of dog breed should I get?

if i were you, i’d keep the cage above the dog’s reach and in a room gated off from the dog’s access, regardless of breed.  you cannot trust a predator to completely ignore prey, even when trained.
