Scotty is an adorable male rabbit looking for a home. His card says he’s a dwarf, but he is more on the average size for a rabbit. Scotty has a youthful exuberance that makes him seem upbeat and accepting. Although we don’t know his exact age, we know he is a young rabbit. Scotty has a beautiful coat that is creamy white and a honey brown. He is very sweet, so the honey color suits him!
Scotty is an indoor rabbit, who would need to be inside your house with you. Rabbits feel most connected to you when they see you, so finding a place in your home where he can connect with you is very important. These days, there are many comfortable quarters for indoor rabbits available. Many rabbits can be litter box trained too, so they can interact more with their families.
Rabbits need time to play, and exercise. They are most active in the morning or early evening, which is a perfect time for you to play with them. Scotty is very friendly and probably would enjoy more time out of his quarters, so he can be cuddled, petted, and enjoy quality time.
Scotty has a great attitude. He seems genuinely happy and enjoys attention. He has a distinct personality, which is friendly and relaxed. Rabbits tend to only reveal their true personalities when they get to know you. Scotty showed that he is fairly comfortable around people and very cooperative. He likes being held, which is not true of all rabbits, and he even enjoyed sitting in the volunteer’s lap.
Contra Costa Animal Services offers a variety of information resources about caring for indoor rabbits. In their “Rabbit Care Information” guide they explain that “It is essential for rabbits to chew and gnaw as their teeth grow throughout their lives. They love to chew on simple things such as cardboard, paper, hay, and apple branches.”
Scotty would make a great companion with his easy-going nature, great personality, adorableness, youthful exuberance, and sweet disposition. He will need to be neutered. (A691495)
