    @sophie82 Welcome to a fellow Brit ... number 3 in fact!! There is myself, @Lucy-licious! (who is up-north) and now you!!! I keep warning everybody that the Brits are gonna take over!!

    I love Norfolk ... spent many holidays on the Norfolk Broads on one of the boats ... **sigh**

    I have friends who now live in Norfolk and I believe they have helped rescue a couple of hedgehogs too .... @cadillactaste .. in the UK a hedgehog is not a pet and as Sophie82 mentioned if they are sick they are rescued and nursed through the winter season as they would die if they attempted to go into hibernation. Once they are well and the weather warms up they are released in to the countryside again. We have a lot of hedgehogs in the UK - unfortunately not as many as there once was though!

    Welcome and make sure you start posting some pics ... what is the baby bullys name??????

    Welcome to the site. I too am excited to see photos of the little one. I hope the vet's office says everything will be okay and he is yours forever. Since you rescue hedgehogs, your heart is defiantly with animals. How cool to have the opportunity to rescue and get a Hedgehog back on track. Nothing like that here in good old Florida. I do have a future daughter-in- law that rescues birds via a local rescue, she is hatching owls as we speak, so cool.

    Keep us updated and you better get the photos up soon, you will be hounded. Again WELCOME or should I say "the British are coming, the British are coming" @kazzy220 and @Lucy-licious!

    Always with me

    @kazzy220 Thanks for explaining...That's cool that they can be nurtured and released again into the wild. When we went to Topsail Island years ago...they had a place for Sea Turtles. Though I understand this was an idividual and not a facility. It is cool that they can be rehabilitated and released.

    Over here...they are pets. They are cute...but after researching...Not the pet for us. Glad the hedgehog will be able to be released into the wild again soon. YAY!

    Sophie I am so happy you got Him. It takes a special person to look past the physical! You know? bulldogs have all kinds of problems, thats why we try to be proactive and prevent rather than fix. I guarantee you this dog will bring so much love into your life

    Hi Sophie! Welcome to EBN! We love all kinds of animals...bullies, cats, small animals etc...doesn't matter if they are purebred, Heinz57....registered with AKC or CKC or whoever. Papers really don't prove anything about a dog, other then ownership! Unless you're going to show an animal, it's just a piece of paper.
    I see dogs everyday who are not registered and are not purebred....and a lot of them are smarter and better dogs then some of the registered ones I've seen...

    Anyway, we are very glad that you are here and if you have any questions or need any advice, please feel free to ask any of us here....if we can't answer your question, we will find an answer for you.

    I will post some pics later on.

    Darlene, In response to your post...


    The hedgehog is not some sort of 'pet' I got him from a charity (norwich hedgehog ) they take in hedgehogs that are sick or underweight and so would die if they went into hibernation, People like me have them in their homes to keep them warm and prevent hibernation and feed them up over the winter ready to be released back where they belong come spring / summer...I live in Norfolk in the UK, right in the countryside.... there are plenty of 'safe' places for him when the time comes.



    Obviously he didnt come with papers no, I purely wanted to know that what she had said to me was correct and that there wasnt any other underlying issues with his health, she has given me this and so NO he will not be 'passed on'.
    The litter was not an 'oops litter' as you put it, but obviously his acccident was. They have already sold all but one more pup now, which was the one she had originally told me about before mentioning the little man I have here.
    For somewhere where the fact he isnt 100% pedigree didnt matter earlier, it sure feels like it does now. Sorry if I have taken your response the wrong way, but I think you have been harsh and quite rude to me with the way you have spoken about both the hedgehog and this pup. But anyway, thats really irrelevant, I hope I have answered your queries.

    Sophie x

    I am sorry to took me harsh...It's just we did research on hedgehogs...and I read they needed soaked to get poop off their feet when they ran on their exercise wheel. I did not really pay attention to the location they were from. I was fascinated that you had them in your neck of the woods...I never mean to come across rude. I thought it rather cool!

    And...I'm sorry you took my comment about your dog not being a registered dog badly...One of the best dogs we've ever had the joy of having shared our lives with...was a collie/shepherd mix. He was the healthiest and best dog behavior wise a person could ever wish for. He was a rescue...and was abused...and I honestly wonder if they don't sometimes try harder to be better when it was never their fault to begin with to be abused.

    I missed this post and it was just brought to my attention. I am truly sorry I came across and seemed rude or hurtful. That was never my intention. Again...I truly hope you accept my apology.
