Default Po' Boy's Weight Loss & Socialization Journey

Hi Everyone,

This is to keep everyone updated on Po' Boy's journey to a healthy weight and to been the best friendliest hog he is capable of been.

As most of you know Shae (shaelikestaquitos) needed to re-home Po' as she felt she couldn't provide the time he needed anymore and was not getting very far with helping him lose weight after trying many different things.

So we offered to take Po' in and see if we could help him. After a short stay with some friends in Quebec, Po' arrived yesterday afternoon to us.

I knew he was big but wow he is a very big boy and extremely overweight for his frame which we all knew. We are hoping to help him lose 200-300grams of his hefty 794g. He is not a huge grump but does need some work on socializing which I am sure he will be a cuddler once he has become more open to been handled a lot.

Here is a couple photo's of him we took when he arrived. He wasn't a huge fan of the flash. You can see all his photo's on our Rescue Page on FB. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...3897275&type=1

Hello everyone:


We will post weekly updates here and on our rescue page as well for everyone to see how he is going.

I'm really glad Po Boy went to you so we can be updated on his progress! He is so cute, and so fat. Fingers crossed he loses weight well with you.

Oh good, I'm so glad that we'll still get to keep updated with Po' Boy. He's been so lucky to stay with Shae and to find another great home with you guys!

I'll be following him! He is so cute. And so fat. I must say I have never seen his face before in pics (usually just his... roundness) but he looks like a cutie!

Thanks all

Po' has settled in well and is a snuggler once he relaxes. I'll be doing weekly weigh in's for hi so come this Saturday we will see if he has managed to lose anything.

I actually wondered if he found a new owner. I was tempted, but I knew full well that, in my situation, I should not get an hedgehog, specially since he require a little more time than most of them. I'm keeping an eye on the Facebook page.
