Hi everyone~ See I have my bunny in a NIC pen/cage in my room. I don't let my shih-tzu or kitten in there since they're not used to the bunny yet. Well I've slowly been letting my dog come in and she runs right up to the cage to investigate. Then my bun comes right to where my dog is to say hi. She's never shown any aggression either. So I was thinking, if my bunny likes my dog... do you guys think she would do well bonding with another rabbit? Or is this kind of thing completely different....? Any advice sure would be appreciated Thanks
hi!I i also have a shih-tzu and he did the same thing when i got the rabbit and i introduced them. slowly everyday i would let Mr. winters(my rabbit) ans Simba (the dog) out together but would monitor like a hawk..they were fine and got along but simba has a tendency to want to play with other animals and has broken a ducks neck we used to have by being to rough..so i decided against letting them out together.....simba was never aggressive with mr.winters and Im sure Mr. winters could take him but I don't want either one of them to get hurt
BUT i have a cat and they get along amazingly. they sniff each other and chase each other around the room, no harm is ever done..
If a bun seems to want to bond with another animal, it doesn't always mean that they will bond better with another bun. Some rabbits find other rabbits as a direct threat to their space whereas another species it isn't such a big deal. On the other hand, a bun who is trying to bond with another species may want a friend.
It depends upon the rabbit really and the only way to find out is to take them on some dates.
