I have this dutch bunny, Charlie. He is small but he thinks he is the BOSS! He was bonded with a trio but started humping every chance he got, biting, and chasing. The two girls where so annnoyed, so I had to seperate him. The two girls are fine now, But he is lonley. Its been a few months and when i try rebonding, this happends. I know he is trying to be dominent, but the other 2 are dwarfs, much smaller than him. I saw a holland lop, on the bigger side in at my local shelter, he is also nueterd! I think it would be great for charlie to have a boy, and this bun could actully stand up for him self!


Charlie is the sweetes thing ever. He loves his strokes and treats, and i think he would benifit from this! Also mom my mom is parcial to lops  ( Lucky me! )  Its been 5 months, and i have tried bonding, once it lasted 2 months, NOTHING!  He needs to learn his lesson. Plus he is so lonley.  SO i want a second opinion, what do you guys think? I have 2 large dog pens fr each pair, I am compltley prepaired for 4 rabbits.

Maybe let Charlie pick his friend. Take him to the shelter and see what he thinks about the lop rabbit.

I agree with Sarita, does your local rescue/shelter do "bunny dating"?

Absolutely let him pick. Sometimes two boys really won't get along. Also, if he has a dominant personality another dominant personality might not be a good idea. If you go to the shelter and let Charlie meet other bunnies you'll know exactly who he is most likely to get along with.
