The Teddy cavy is currently one of the most popular breeds in the United States.
It's short, dense, even coat is unique in having a "kinked" or bent hair shaft, which causes the coat to stand erect over
the entire body of the cavy. The coat is to demonstrate "resiliency" - that is, it should return to an even, upright appearance
immediately after it is disturbed. The Teddy should have a medium length body and a Roman nose.
