Elmo & Ford

Elmo (5)

Elmo

Ford

Ford

Elmo and Ford are just like “The Odd Couple!”  Ford is light, Elmo is dark.  Ford is outgoing and social, Elmo is grumpy and reserved.  They have been bachelor roommates for a while now, and get along great despite their differences.

Ford just had his second birthday and is a calm, easy-going guy.  He’ll sit in your hand or lap and hang out.  He’d be a great homework buddy or movie-watching pal.

Elmo is 9 months old and, while gorgeous, is not very social.  He’ll unball if you hold him, but sometimes nips at fingers.  He would be happier not to be handled much by humans but likes hanging out with his buddy, Ford.

While most hedgehogs can live happily either alone or with a roommate or two, Elmo’s life would be much more fulfilling if he could stay with his pal.  Ford will be able to be held and have adventures with their new family, and Elmo would benefit from Ford’s company when the family is busy.  Without Ford to keep him company, Elmo may become even more withdrawn, especially since he’s not interested in being handled much by humans.  We hope that by keeping them together, they will both be able to have long, happy lives in their new home.

Policies and Guarantee:

Waiting List deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE.  We require a deposit to ensure that waiting-list participants are over the age of 18 and are committed to a Hazel Mountain hedgehog.  Adding yourself to the waiting list does not guarantee the timeframe in which a baby will be offered to you, only that your “place in line” is reserved.  For more information, see the Waiting List page.

Hazel Mountain guarantees your hedgehog against Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome (WHS) for LIFE.  The ONLY way to diagnose WHS is via microscopic evaluation of brain tissue–it CANNOT be definitively diagnosed in a living animal!  Since any unwell hedgehog will typically “wobble,” even for something as simple as being too cold, a vet familiar with hedgehogs should explore other causes and treatments for your ill hedgehog.  If your vet truly suspects your hedgehog has WHS, you MUST have the specialized test performed after the animal passes.  Hazel Mountain will reimburse you for the testing fees and, if the test is positive, will either refund or replace the hedgehog (your choice).  Hazel Mountain cannot give refunds/replacements for WHS if the brain tissue analysis is not performed!  You or your vet are encouraged to contact Hazel Mountain with questions about WHS testing, if needed.

While every effort is made to breed healthy, happy, long-lived hedgehogs, Hazel Mountain cannot make any guarantees or issue any refunds for any non-genetic condition, including (but not limited to) health, lifespan, temperament, adult color, or suitability for breeding.

Hazel Mountain sells all hedgehogs as PET-QUALITY, not suitable for breeding, unless breeding is discussed prior to purchase.  This is merely to enable us to offer the best bloodlines possible to breeders and encourage only the best genes be passed on, thereby giving the next generation the best chance at health, longevity, and superb temperament.  Since WHS is a genetic, incurable, devastating disease, breeding your hedgehog without carefully considering bloodlines and consulting with a knowledgeable breeder is strongly discouraged.

If for any reason you can no longer care for your hedgehog, Hazel Mountain would prefer the hedgehog be returned to us for re-homing. No refunds will be given outside of the WHS guarantee, but the hedgehog will be evaluated for health and temperament and found a suitable new home, if possible.

Per USDA regulations, Hazel Mountain must collect contact information for every new hedgehog owner.  Hazel Mountain will not share this information with any third party except the USDA or as required by law.  Hazel Mountain may use your e-mail address to contact you with information about your hedgehog if needed, or to offer participation in occasional (up to semi-annual) surveys regarding your hedgehog to help us evaluate the success of our breeding program, unless you opt-out at time of hedgehog pickup.

The USDA also requires that Hazel Mountain inform all prospective hedgehog owners that, like any other insectivore, hedgehogs can carry Salmonella.  It can be part of their natural digestive bacteria, and trying to “cure” a hedgehog of Salmonella can be dangerous or even fatal to the hedgehog.  Hedgehogs pose no more risk than other insectivores (such as many reptiles), and proper hygiene and handling practices drastically reduce the risk of human illness in those with healthy immune systems.  More information about Salmonella and hedgehogs is available on the CDC website.

Hello, Waiting List Members!  Thanks for your patience!

 

The next round of babies won’t be ready to go home until July, and some of you have been waiting a long time!  I have some young adults that I am placing in pet homes, but I have listed them here for you guys before putting them on the public page, just in case some of you would rather have a youngster now instead of a baby later.  I am showing this page to all of you at once, but don’t fret–your place on the waiting list hasn’t been changed, and I will still show you babies in the order that you were added to the list.

The prices on this page reflect the fact that you have already placed a deposit.  If you see the hedgie of your dreams here, you can pay your balance via Paypal.  If you would like to meet your potential new friend prior to paying the balance, or if you would prefer to pay the balance in cash, please contact us via e-mail (Andrea@Hazelmountain.com) to schedule a time to come by.

Like our babies, these guys and gals are guaranteed against Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome.  If you live locally, we also provide the names of several area veterinarians that specialize in hedgehogs, in the rare event your hedgie requires medical care.

If none of these guys tugs on your heartstrings, or you were waiting for a particular color or gender that is not yet available, please don’t despair!  The next round of litters is due the week of the 26th, and I will update the Available page as I know more about the upcoming litters.

 

It’s your turn to pick!

 

The babies listed below are reserved just for you.  Since these posts are password-protected, only one person can see them at a time.  This way, you can take your time and choose your new friend with care.  We just ask that you contact us within 1 week so we know you are still out there!  The password is the same for all posts.  You should only have to enter the password for one post, and it will make all the posts visible.

Since you have already placed a deposit, you can pay your balance on this page via Paypal once you have chosen.  If you would like to meet your potential new friend prior to paying the balance, or if you would prefer to pay the balance in cash, please contact us via e-mail (Andrea@Hazelmountain.com) or phone (303-552-2605) to schedule a time to come by.

Each baby hedgehog goes home with a care information sheet, a sample of the food they are currently on, and a 5-generation pedigree upon request (when available).  All our babies are guaranteed against Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome.  If you live locally, we also provide the names of several area veterinarians that specialize in hedgehogs, in the rare event your hedgie requires medical care.

I do my best to describe colors and markings, however, final color and markings can’t be determined 100% until the last quilling, between 4-8 months of age.  I can make color predictions, but not guarantees.

If none of these babies tugs on your heartstrings, or you were waiting for a particular color or gender that is not yet available, please let us know.  We will be happy to move your deposit to the next round of babies.

 

“Oliver” needs a new home!

Oliver1

Oliver is a handsome but skittish light chocolate boy with charming freckles on his nose!  He needs a patient new home that will have the time to work with him on social skills (like not nibbling the hand that feeds!).  He’s been vet checked to see if there might be a medical cause for his curmudgeonly behavior, and got a clean bill of health.  He may never be extremely outgoing, but in a calm environment with the right people, he may learn to be more personable.
Oliver2

 

 
 

Oliver was born some time in June 2013, making him around a  year and a half old.  He has an enclosure, fleece bedding, a Carolina Storm bucket wheel with a litter tray, nail clippers, bath soap, and a some food and litter that are included in his adoption fee of $100.  If you’d like more information or to set up a visit, e-mail Laura at laura.meckley@du.edu.
