Bobby

Animal - Rabbit - Rex cross
Sex - Male
Age -  2 years
Location - Sanctuary

 

Bobby is a very sociable, special rabbit who is looking for a special home.

Bobby came to us last year due to aggressive behaviour in the home becoming increasingly difficult to manage. He was kept as a single rabbit as he previously hadn't bonded well with others. However living solo didn't seem to suit him either and his behaviour deteriorated.

While at the sanctuary Bobby has shown no signs of aggression with our volunteers. He is incredibly friendly and sociable and loves to spend time with people. He has been living happily side-by-side with other rabbits (all neutered pairs or neutered single females) and his behaviour towards them in this context is always positive. We have tried slowly bonding him with several other neutered female rabbits and while they are side-by-side Bobby is very comfortable. However when it comes to sharing space fully with another rabbit, on neutral territory, Bobby displays highly anxious and aggressive behaviours toward the other rabbit. Once they are back to being side-by-side again with a wire barrier in between he is comfortable and relaxed again.

We don't want Bobby to live alone as, in his own way, he enjoys the company of other rabbits and it's important his social needs are met. However he may never be happy to share his space fully with another rabbit. We are looking to find Bobby a home which meets our set up requirements where he can live side-by-side with neutered rabbit(s) (any combination of neutered rabbits apart from 2 males would be fine). Perhaps in time he will be comfortable enough to move in rather than be neighbours but it's not a guarantee and it could be years before it's a possibility.

Bobby loves spending time with people. Unlike many rabbits he genuinely enjoys having a cuddle and being stroked and he actively seeks this interaction so he needs a home with humans who will have time to interact with him. He is a favourite of everyone at the sanctuary and will make someone a fantastic furry friend.

He is neutered and vaccinated against Myxomatosis, RHD and VHD2. 

Rabbits are incredibly social animals and if left without company and things to do for a long time they can suffer. They have complex social needs and are happiest when kept with another friendly rabbit. TAG have many bunnies looking for a good home and this is just a small selection of the ones currently needing a good home . Please adopt from rescues rather than buy your pet from a shop.

At TAG we ask for new homes to have a run that is a minimum of 6 ft x 10 ft. (After all that is only 4 bunny hops) A hutch should be attached so that rabbits can be self sufficient and get in and out when they choose. The hutch should be tall enough so that the rabbits can stand up on their hind legs and be at least 6 ft long. It is very important that they are secure as foxes are becoming more bold and will enter gardens even when people are there
