I am not an expert but the hedgehog may have internal injuries and could also be a mum.
I would ring the BHPS on 01584 890801 to get a local carers number for advice. Some vets also look at wildlife for free. Is your dog needing a vet visit too?
Short term give plenty of dog food and water and leave box in dark place during the day.
We had a terrier who fortunately didn’t attack hedgehogs but did let us know where they were. We took the precaution of having him on a lead in the garden from dusk.
I really hope the hedgehog and your JRT are both OK.
Please let us know what happens.
