Male Long-Haired Hamster
I love that petsmart had their syrian hamsters separated and the cages looked very clean. The employee who helped me let me go through each hamster multiple times so I could end up with a pet I liked. I ended up with a long haired male and did quite a bit of research before I got him along with setting up his cage well in advance. Hamsters need to stick to their routine or they can become aggressive and since I've followed his rule I haven't been bit once. Mr. Gregovich will come to the sound of my voice when he's out in his ball and come to the door of his cage to great me when I get home each night. He is not a needy pet by any means and I highly recommend a syrian compared to smaller breeds if you plan on holding them as they are less aggressive. The only problem I do have is the cages petsmart sells are far to small for a syrian so I did purchase my cage else where. Other then that the associate was very knowledgeable and honest in areas she was unsure about. I have had him for 6 months and plan on getting a second soon!

I've had my long haired hamster for two months now, he is the sweetest thing in the world. He has never bitten me or anyone else. He is always ready to play and cuddle. I can pick him up while he is asleep and lay him on me and just pet him and he will lay there until he's ready to start running around. He's so playful and energetic everyone loves him. Favorite breed of hamster I have ever owned!

Sweet little fella!
Our hammie was so very sweet. My daughter and I simply adored him. We got him out of the cage daily to play with him, that seemed to help tame him alot. We had him almost 2 years and he only bit twice, but it was because we hadn't washed our hands before handling him. He thought our fingers were food. But as we handled him more and more, he seemed to get the idea! I recommend when choosing a hammie, to pick them up at the store and hold them and put your finger by their mouth, hold them on their back for a few seconds. If they nip, they are not for you! Ours was great when we put him through this little test. He was calm and didn't bite! He ended up being the best hamster we have ever had, including the ones from when I was a child! Good luck!
