Question Hamster breed?

Hello! I have 2 little hamsters called domino and Rufus. The place I got them advertised them as Russian dwarfs and Iím a bit confused! Iíve know that the main hamster breeds are Syrian, Chinese, Campbellís , winter white and robo and not sure what my two are. I know there obviously not a Syrian, Chinese or robo. But not sure about Campbellís or winter white. Iím pretty sure they are Campbellís from looking at many pictures! But just wanted a second opinion! Sorry if this seems a really stupid question! Ive linked an Instagram picture of them cause Iím on my phone and canít add a picture. Domino: https://instagram.com/p/BfbojiBAiAZ/ Rufus: https://instagram.com/p/BfbnyKwAN5K/

Default Re: Hamster breed?

It is most likely both Domino and Rufus are hybrids - a mix of both Campbell’s and winter white. These are the only 2 species which can interbreed therefore producing hybrids (also known as Russian Hybrids) - depending upon their individual genetics they can either exhibit more features/characteristic of either a winter white or a Campbell’s. As purebred can only be sourced through ethical breeders who can ensure the lineage of all pups.

They look lovely. From a pet shop they most likely are hybrids along the lines somewhere but these look closest to Campbells. You don't get that type of pattern or colour at all in Winter Whites.
