Waldo is a domesticated hedgehog who lives with Niki Brown and Jack Dicken in Farnborough.
He loves to spend time at the pub and walking the dogs.
In the West, domesticated hedgehogs are called African pygmy hedgehogs, as they really come from hot African countries (Algeria, Egypt).
Domesticated hedgehogs have been popular pets since around the 1980s.
These hedgehogs prefer warm climates and can be very light in color, including albino.
Niki Brown adopted Waldo from an animal shelter.
The hedgehog turned out to be very friendly. And then the new owners began to notice that their prickly pet likes to smile when they give him a treat.
On Fridays, Nicki and Jack take the hedgehog to the pub, where Waldo hangs out with all his owners’ friends and eats sweetcorn, his favorite treat.
Waldo, who is already three years old, is wise, sociable, gets along not only with people, but also with dogs, who also live with Nicky.
“In my opinion, in a past life he was a dog,” Niki shares her thoughts on this matter.
The fact is that Waldo’s behavior is unusual for hedgehogs – they are quiet and prefer to spend time in a secluded place, moreover, they often have no mood, they grumble and get angry.
Waldo is completely different. Therefore, all Nicki and Jack’s friends love him very much and send him gifts.
