Rescued Pink Hedgehog Bonds with Dog Siblings

By Amanda Kabbabe and Gillian Pensavalle, Buzz60

When Jacqueline Law saw a pink hedgehog being sold online, she jumped at the chance to adopt him -- but it wasn't because she loved his color.

Law, who works with the Hedgehog Welfare Society, recognized that the hedgehog had been cruelly dyed. The online ad claimed Floyd the hedgehog was a rare pink albino, but Law knew better. It was the result of poodle dye.

Knowing how toxic the dye could be for hedgehogs, Law rescued Floyd.

Now Floyd gets along well with Law's adorable pups, Polar and Marlowe. He even has a new hedgehog friend: Sullivan.

Though the pink has faded from Floyd's fur, the color is likely to be permanent. Still, the little guy is active and vibrant.

Since adopting Floyd, Law has spoken out against buying animals for "entertainment." She wants them to be brought into loving homes that will provide them with proper care.

She also urges people to speak out if they notice an animal has been abused.

Luckily for Floyd, he gets to live happily ever after.
