Default Is my dwarf a Winter White or Russian Campbell?

My little Bailey has joined the family for a few weeks now but I've been wondering whether he is a winter white or a Russian Campbell. I have another dwarf that is a Russian Campbell but he is larger, his legs are slighter smaller and he has different colourings. Please help me identify my hamster! Also if you know the name of the colour please let me know! Interested to find out!

We do need a photo but if you got your Russian from a pet shop then he'll be a Russian hybrid, they can look more like one species than the other but are still hybrids, pet shops don't sell pure bred species & if he came from a breeder surely they would know?
Look forward to seeing his colour though when you can post a photo.

Well with him being from a Pet Shop he is most likely a hybrid. But looking at his coat he has more Winter White in him than Campbells. His coat is the same as a normal/agouti Winter White He's lovely.

He looks like my Chloe, except gender
She's a WW agouti hybrid
You can tell by the top of the head is dark

Aww he's lovely!
I agree with Rach about his colour, saying WW hybrid or Campbells hybrid can be a bit confusing as a hybrid is just that really, a bit of both!

Hybrid would be a safe bet, though if he changes colour with the season, likely to be more ww than campbell's but it's nearly impossible to tell unless you have a pedigree. As far as feeding goes stick to the same rules you would for a Campbell as far as diet. I miss my Campbell hybrid he was a sweetie.
