Rescue Group: New Moon Rabbit Rescue
Dorothy was an abandoned rabbit found on a private property in Carleton Place, where she had been left to fend for herself for 3 months. She arrived on 6 June 2012. Dorothy is still adjusting to her new safe and comfortable life, but we have no doubt that she will be just fine! She was spayed on 7 June 2012 and is available for adoption.
Dorothy is a sweet and somewhat timid bun who is starting to discover how much fun life can be when you are brave enough to explore it. She takes her time but is starting to become trusting (particularly when she thinks you may have some fresh hay or greens for her). Dorothy is shy with new or louder sounds, and tries to hide when out for free-range time, but explores with more confidence each time.
Dorothy is getting better with being handled but definitely needs a home and family that understands her frightening and emotional past and helps her grows and come out of her shell. Making sure that Dorothy has interactive but not deep cave-like hiding areas during playtime helps her to gain confidence in her surroundings and she will spend more time exploring.
Dorothy is somewhat unsure of typical bunny toys offered her, but is very interested in investigating during playtime and marking with her chin on the children's toys. She's somewhat nervous of new or louder sounds, so is not a good candidate for a family with small children at the moment. She is slowly learning that our boys often only come around to bring her tasty greens so she is starting to become a little braver around them and is starting to expect treats.
Sweet Dorothy has yet to have the courage to show anyone her beautiful and carefree binkies. Perhaps you are the person that will be lucky enough to see them for the first time.
