Robby the Rescue Rabbit
- If you have a dog with a high prey drive, think twice. Ask questions. Consider a rabbit's housing options for his safety as well as the ability to get some exercise.
- Adopting a rabbit if you already have a small breed, very young puppy or kitten, may make for a better pack relationship. However, for their safety, I would not recommend the smaller rabbit breeds. In addition, there are certain dog breeds that may never do well with a rabbit. For instance, Terriers may present a particularly tough challenge. Be sure to tell the adoption group about your other pets.
- Give your new pack mates separate playtime when you cannot continuously supervise.
- Bunny proof your rabbit's play area, placing all cords and cables under rugs and behind furniture. Remove all soft plastic items from access. Our Robby particularly enjoyed iPod cords and remote control buttons for chew toys ;) so keep that in mind.
