Hi guy i just joined. I just rescued a hedgie from a terrible South Korean pet shop. He was so dirty and covered with scabs. When i went to get him the shop owner picked him up with pliers and stuffed him in a really small box. He also was kept in a cage with no shelter and no top outside in the heat and sun so as a result he sleeps in a ball with his quills out. He is going to the vet this coming week (i have to find a translator) i know he is going to need time to recover and lots of love. I am open to any advice! I was planning to get a hedgie at some point while here but this is much sooner than expected! I dont even know for sure if its a male or female yet but will find out at the first vet visit. He is too scared for me to pick up to check at this point. Anyhoo he is much better off in his makeshift box then in that horrid pet shop. I already know a lot but i am learning more as i go.
