Welcome to Dashing Hamsters. I created this website back in 2005, initially to have a place to share my love of hamsters. Throughout the years I have come across a lot of information that just often doesn't match up. Care standards and information are outdated, and these little creatures are misunderstood by many. So I decided to make this website as more than just a hamster lover's website, but a hamster website for modern owners who are looking for up to date advice on how to care for and understand their beloved hamsters. On DH you can learn about hamsters, see some cute pictures and read through a hamster filled blog.

Meet Lumiel

After a short break from hamsters so that I could finish off my school year and delve into working over the summer I have finally welcomed another hamster into my life. He is a long haired banded mink syrian named Lumiel. He seems to be a rather mellow and easy going little guy that is most certainly an avid wheel hamster. And now without further delay, the pictures!

I would also like to take the time to mention that I do also have a youtube channel where I share videos of my pets, mostly of the hamsters. The link is right here: My Youtube Channel. Here's a sample:


  1. Lumiel is so cute and fluffy haha :D
    Is he a cinnamon banded or something else, I'm just curious :)

  2. He is ADORABLE!! Not kidding! :D My hamster passed yesterday, so I am thinking about a new one soon. R.I.P, Wally. :(

  3. Thank you guys!

    Aimee I am sorry about your Wally. I'm sure that another hamster friend will find a way into your life soon enough. :)

    Creative hamster: His colouring is called mink, cinnamon is a little orangier overall.
