Hii This is my first post on Binkybunny My name is Sondre and my girlfriends name is Svandis 

One of our bunnies passed away last week, and me and my gf (Svandis on the forum) are worried that his brother, Bosse, will get lonely without another buddy. We won't get a new one untill after christmas atleast, so Bosse gets time to mourn, and to get a closer bond with us, but still we don't want to wait too long either. We have been looking at a couple bunnies from before Mathias passed, so we have been thinking of it for a while.. We have been wanting either a dutch, a tan or an otter colored N-dwarf maybe. We were just wondering how, or if, a tan or a dutch could get along with a lionhead (ofc after doing some bunny dating) to see if Bosse finds someone that he gets along with. We were wondering since tans and dutch rabbits are bigger in size, then a N-dwarf might be more appropriate?

Ofc if we see another bun that Bosse gets along with well, we won't dismiss it on behalf of the breed, we were just wondering about the practicality of bonding a small breed with a medium/bigger breed - wether or not it is possible.

Also, we might add that Bosse is rather big for a lionhead, he weighs 1.7kg and he's 5 months old.

Size doesn't matter with bunnies I have seen flemish giants bonded with dutch or netherland dwarf rabbits, so it really doesn't matter to them at all

Funny pic, she's mostly just laying ontop of Lady...

They are perfectly fine bonded though it was a bit tough because Sam( little one) was intimidated by her size, but it worked itself out, as you can see
Sam is about 5lbs and Lady is near 15-16lbs.
