Allen is adorable! Good for you, taking in a hedgehog in need of some TLC. He's so lucky that he got picked up by an owner like you! Just a couple of things you might want to be wary of:

Be careful with those runaround balls, they can be dangerous for hedgehogs. Nails get stuck in the little cracks (breaking toes) and they end up running surrounded by their own poop. Also not to be overly cautious, but what was the temperature when you took him outside? Anything below 72 could give him quite the chill.

I share my home with one, big, slobbery dog, a ragdoll, a blind domestic shorthair, a slinky tabby, one crowntail betta, a double tail halfmoon betta, and our latest quilled addition... Prudence!
