Hey all!

Since Layla is successfully making it through her spay, I'm thinking of getting a second bun from a rescue sometime this month or early next month. However I'd like the new bunny to move into Layla's palace eventually, and have them bonded for companionship. Where do I start? Should I call the shelters that are close enough and see if they'll let me do a bunny date with a young buck? Can I just get whatever buck appears good tempered and really stands out and then deal with bonding after the fact? I mean, it'll be Layla's room mate so I imagine she should be involved in the decision, lol.

Any advice would really be appreciated, I'd like to go about things the best possible way to minimize stress and maximize the chance of the two buns really hitting it off.

You should definitely start with a local rescue and take Layla on dates to meet the boys. Do you have any rabbit rescues or just shelters? That may make a difference as well as shelters may not be as familiar with bonding rabbits and what should be required and may have different policies than a rabbit rescue about bringing an outside animal in to meet one of their animals.
