Can a 12 week old male dwarf hamster who you didn't know needed companionship can you introduce a new male dwarf or will they fight?

Yes, in fact, I highly recommend you buy a second one. They will

not fight like Syrian hamsters who are solitary. Dwarf hamsters

happily coexist with each other and not only will it make it funner

for the dwarf hamsters themselves but it will be fun for you too as

you watch them get each other to do funny things you wouldn't see

them do if they were alone. If you bought a Chinese dwarf hamster

his companion must be another Chinese dwarf. The same goes with

Russian dwarfs.

Two dwarfs will always get along no matter what age they are

when they meet but sometimes it will take a little bit longer for a

female to get used to it

They don't usually get along unless they were together since

birth, especially males. Males like to fight for dominance, or if

there is a female they will usually fight over her. A fight between

any hamster can cause very serious injury of even death. THEY

WILL NOT LIVE HAPPILY TOGETHER! UNLESS THEY HAVE BEEN TOGETHER

SINCE BIRTH THEY WILL MOST LIKELY FIGHT! I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND

THAT YOU DO NOT PUT MORE THAN ONE HAMSTER IN ONE CAGE. IT CAN CAUSE

VERY SERIOUS INJURY OR EVEN DEATH!
