Default Re: Introducing hamsters to dogs

Same here, my dog, a Cairn Terrier got bitten badly by a guinea pig and never ever went anywhere near one.

I'd keep them apart. Rodents have very sharp and long teeth and dogs have very sensitive and soft noses. Hamsters will bite when they feel threatend and a dog would be seen as a threat.
