Rescue Group: New Moon Rabbit Rescue
Winston came in to New Moon Rabbit Rescue’s care on 11 October 2012. Winston is a French Lop and weighs approx 12lbs (maybe a bit more!). He came to New Moon as an owner surrender.
Winston was born in June 2011. He spent his last months before being surrendered in a cage that was not acceptable for a rabbit of his size. Because he was unable to move properly he had hock sores on his hind feet that have since been treated and healed. A rabbit of his size should NEVER be kept in a cage of any kind. Even as little as a large “night crate” or exercise pen is too much for him right now and he would only spend his time trying to break free.
He has also been treated for an eye infection and still receives occasional eye drops to help with any inflammation that remains.
Winston loves to investigate and check everything out including the inside of the fridge. He loves to throw toys and show off for anyone that will pay attention to him. We do not believe that Winston has the best vision, which is most likely due to his ongoing and untreated eye issues. As a result he does not like fast/sudden movements and does not like being approach from directly in front of him but he loves pets and loves attention. It is not uncommon to see Winston crashed out in the middle of the floor for a rest between his GIANT binkies so it is important to always turn on a light before entering the room as Winston moves for no one!!
Surprisingly, unlike many large breed bunnies, Winston loves to be picked up, held and carried around! He just wants and needs love so badly.
Winston is adoptable as a free-range bunny ONLY.
Winston is NOT RECOMMENDED to a home with young children. Winston is however getting much better with cats and dogs and with proper introductions and patience we see no reason why he cannot share a home with other animals.
We do make every effort to keep our adoption profiles as up-to-date as possible but this is not always possible. If you are interested in adopting Winston or have any questions about him, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
