Re: The true cost of buying from back yard breeders...

Thanks guys.

No I refuse to leave it, breeders like her are disgusting. She has not only left a animal to suffer which nearly cost her life but she's upset my little brother. He cries every time he see's her because he doesn't want to hurt her.

This breeder should have her animals taken from her.

Re: The true cost of buying from back yard breeders...

dont name and shame her or do anything to her adds/contact potential buyers as this could cause problems with the court case

scum like her should get her all of her animals taken away from her, its not like its something that you couldnt notice either!

I'm so so sorry your little brother is suffering from this. I hope once she's better he'll be more comfortable with her. It's terrible for the both of them I'm confident your little brother will give her a lovely life <3

I'm so annoyed at this "breeder" keep us updated, lets hope justice comes your way, for your brother and the poor little hedgehog!

Re: The true cost of buying from back yard breeders...

this is shocking! your poor brother, but thankfully at least you've got her and she's 'safe'... I had no idea until recently that there were such things as hedgehog breeders and that you could buy them.... Solstice is a lovely name and she's going to have a great life, that's the main thing... as long as you get the money back from the breeder.. good for you for taking it further.

Re: The true cost of buying from back yard breeders...

This is disgusting!

Your vet has clearly proven that the injury is old. The breeder has not provided her pets with veterinary treatment. To transport her in that state is just cruel. You have photographic evidence as well as your vets report. Do not let this settle take her to court, name and shame her and put her story in all the local papers and animal magazines.

I know its almost xmas and she was banking on making money out of poor Solstice. Just DISGUSTING!!!

I am so sorry you and your brother have been put through this.

I rescued my hedgehog after her previous owners got bored and didnt have the time for her. In saying that tho I spent a good 2 hours with my hog before taking her home and had a really good chat with them. I do not consider them bad people. I really dont feel its right to courier pets, without meeting the breeder or pet first. I know you had no choice but to send someone to collect her and this is just such an awful start to life for her.

I hope people learn from Solstice story

Sad part is she still sold 2 more of the litter mates after Solstice's story had been posted around. Apart from publicly naming and shaming her I dont really know how else to keep folk away from her.
I know some people may not agree with me but if I were in this position I would name and shame the poor excuse for a breeder.
Go to the newspapers! You'd be letting people know not to buy animals from that thing and getting money!
Although I know if you're going to court that probably wouldn't be a wise decision.

Re: The true cost of buying from back yard breeders...

This is horrible, how anyone could leave any animal with a broken leg is beyond me. I am glad that you got her though and she has been helped. I hope you get a good result in the end. I do think you are doing the right thing taking this further, she needs to know that what she did was very wrong.

Re: The true cost of buying from back yard breeders...

Well Solstice went for her amputation on the 31st Jan.

Here she is tonight.





She;s still unsteady on her foot but she's learning how to walk with only 1 front leg. The vets shocked at how well she's doing healing.
