Little Zorro is a bandit looking to steal your heart. This very handsome dwarf rabbit was found as a stray in a backyard. Zorro is still young and needs continued work on getting used to being handled. With continued socialization he will hopefully improve with this. Zorro loves to snuggle and may lick your face. He gets a bit overzealous with the grooming and may gently nibble, which can be startling. To avoid this behaviour, Zorro should be given a "time out" when he nips. As soon as he nips, making a squeak noise will help him realize he has made a mistake. Leaving him alone until he is calm will allow Zorro to learn that biting humans is not allowed. He may not be suited for young children because his nipping may scare them. Zorro gets very excited when he sees someone he recognizes and will run around trying to get their attention. He enjoys climbing on his human friends and loves to dig in soft materials. Zorro loves treats, which will be very useful for his training.

Rabbits are intelligent social animals who require caring, attentive and affectionate keepers. Their average life span, depending on size and breed, is generally between 7 to 12 years. They can be litter box trained, though Zorro is still working on this. It is important to have a good diet including pellet and vegetables, plus access to hay 24 hours a day. Rabbits need room for exercise several hours a day and an environment with plenty of enrichment. To learn more about caring for a rabbit go to http://www.spca.bc.ca/pet-care/care-behaviour/rabbits.

A behaviour counselling session with our Adoption Staff is necessary before adopting any animal.

The world is inhabited by many species sharing a common ecosystem of air, earth, and water. We recognize and value our interconnectedness with all animals.

1. Freedom from hunger and thirst
