Basil (black) and Clover (tan) are a closely bonded pair of male dwarf lionhead mix bunnies. They are about two years old, and weigh 5 lbs and 4 lbs, respectively. These handsome boys with lionhead manes have it all...personality and looks. They are curious and energetic and need 2-3 hours a day of romp about time outside of their pen. They have good litterbox habits and are eager eaters of pellets and hay. They love their daily salad greens! They adore head pets and cuddles at floor level, but are not big fans of being picked up.
Basil is a special needs bunny in that he was surrendered, with his mate Clover, to a shelter with a badly broken right hind leg. The vets went into action and following a surgery to put a pin in his broken tibia, his hind leg was put in a soft cast for 5 weeks. His tibia has healed very well, but he eventually lost the toes on his right foot. However, he is the little bunny that could, he gets around so well, running, binkying and all. The vet gave him an all clear as his leg has healed so well. Basil and Clover have been fostered for 5 months since surgery date and are doing very well! Because of Basil's special needs we prefer that this adorable pair go into a rabbit savvy home in the Santa Fe or Albuquerque area because we have discounts set up with trusted vets in these locations.
