Spike was quickly taken to the RSPCA’s Birmingham Animal Hospital to get checked over and make sure he hadn’t sustained any injuries. Thankfully, he appeared to be in fairly good health, and should be able to be released back into the wild within a few days. If Rosie hadn’t found Spike when she did, the hedgehog’s plight may have had a very different outcome, and everyone is so grateful to the little dog for making sure he got the help he needed.
“When the hedgehog was out, Rosie ran round the garden like a puppy. She seemed very pleased with herself,” Back said in a press release. “We made sure she got a big fuss and some doggy treats for her efforts.”
