    I've been asking around about hamster breeders as my eldest daughter (16) wanted a hamster
    Well, today the lady in the local pet shop offered me a dwarf winter white hamster, she wanted a good home for him desperately
    He has a broken front foot
    He has seen the vet, whilst in their care, but the vet said it would have to heal by itself, as there was nothing they could do
    It has healed but at an angle and he can't use it
    We were delighted to be able to take him in and give him some extra special care

    Sorry not the best picture, I am just getting used to my new camera

    Congrats! Disabled pets are more rewarding than any other type of pet imo!

    I have two disabled dogs, a one-eyed gerbil and I just lost my disabled budgie, they are so sweet :)

    You won't be able to stop collecting 'special' pets now, I'm currently on the lookout for another disabled budgie :)
