Biography

Meet Carmy, a sweetheart of a middle-aged lionhead bunny!
From what we know Carmy was used for breeding for the majority of his life (7+ years) and latterly kept in a small closet by himself in a barn until he was rescued by his foster parents. Despite his lonely living conditions up until now, Carmy is an incredibly sweet, curious and gentle little guy! He is understandably still very timid & often runs away if you try to pet him, but he always comes pattering right back if you are patient with him! He has developed a passion for enrichment activities where he has to search & solve puzzles to find treats. Even though he's estimated to be on the older side for a bunny (7-8 years), he seems much younger and is very mobile and bright! He is also about 90% litter-trained and quite low-maintenance to care for as a small rabbit.

His foster parents would have absolutely loved to keep him but because they already have 2 bunnies and a dog they feel it would be best for Carmy to live in a home where he can have more individual attention to help bring him out of his shell. He has unfortunately not been neutered nor received any vet care that we know of but seems to be in good health all things considered. He could do well with another bunny of a similar temperament but it would be strongly recommended that he receive a thorough vet check & is neutered first!

While we are ideally looking for a family that has experience with bunnies, we would be more than happy to find him a home where he has his own quite space (min 5'x5' enclosure, NO cages!) and a family who will be loving, patient & understanding that he is very shy and needs time to build trust. For this reason we will not be willing to place him in a home with children under the age of 12-14 or with loud or rambunctious pets!

We are happy to provide most of the necessities to his new family (ie litter box, lots of hay and treats, all of his toys, a vet referral) as we want him to be as comfortable as possible in his new forever home!
