I would recommend the European hamster be breed for the pet trade
The reason is as far as I can tell this hamster isn't already in the pet trade is because the years of persecution and little knowledge of its existence plus the fact that it's probably seen not to be exotic! I couldn't believe it when I found out there is a native small cat in Britain, and as with the European hamster the British wild cat has many years of persecution behind them and let alone all the trouble they have had with gamekeepers and the like we then brought African small cats over which have diluted the wild cats lineage.
We can have a Pygmy hedgehog as a pet (which is also from Africa)!
