Do you believe in Magic? I hope so, because I believe I’d like to get to know you! I am a really special breed of rabbit—a Rex—that many people have never even seen! Rex rabbits are sometimes called Velveteen Rabbits. That’s because we have thick, plush fur that feels just like velvet. No other rabbit breed has this kind of fur, and—not to brag or anything—some people think that makes us very special. My fur is shiny and jet black, and my foster mom tells me I am cute as can be!
Weighing in at less than 3 lbs., I fall into the category of a dwarf size bunny. I am such a tiny boy that I can hide in all kinds of small household objects and you’ll hardly know I’m there. Check out the pictures at the bottom of this page. I’m in a baseball glove…and then I’m in a Kleenex box… Who knows where I’ll show up next! Actually, my foster mom was posing me in these silly objects just so you could see how small I am—but please do not try this at home!
I am the product of a pair of rabbits whose owner did not know about the importance of spay/neuter. Before she knew it, this woman had more bunnies than she was able to take care of. As ACDC’s rabbit director will tell you, rabbits reproduce like, um, rabbits, and it’s very hard to find enough good homes.
Like all young bunnies, I am curious and active. I like to check out what my foster mom is doing, and I even like to watch her take care of the foster kittens and cats in the house. I’m a very friendly and playful boy who loves petting. I enjoy being around people and will even play a game of “toss the toys” if you’re interested. I’d like to find a home where I will receive lots of love and attention (and lots of petting, please!). Although I like kids as much as adults, I’ll need a family without very young children because of my small, delicate size.
If you believe in Magic and would like more information or would like to schedule a meet-and-greet, please contact ACDC’s rabbit director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please learn about proper rabbit care before deciding to adopt. Rabbits are NOT easy, low maintenance, “starter” pets! To learn more, check out the website www.rabbit.org and the book, House Rabbit Handbook, by Marinell Harriman.
ACDC’s rabbit director can also provide you with a packet of rabbit care information. You may contact her at email@example.com.
