Meet Bruiser

Bruiser is not all as tough as his name may suggest. He's a very handsome LionLop with a gentle soul.

These are bonded brothers. Their parents are a handsome Holland Lop, Bruno, and a beautiful LionLop, Zsa Zsa. These adorable little LionLops have big personalities. Though I think we got the names mixed up, LOL. Cruiser is the more dominant "tough guy" and Bruiser is the more laid-back, gentle soul - just wanting to slow-cruise through life.

In fact, Bruiser's so gentle that he has been having an ongoing issue with his brother, Cruiser, who he loves immensely, but who just wouldn't stop bullying him. All in brotherly love. Typical brothers! This even in spite of long, attentive efforts to keep them bonded. They'll seem to be doing good with each other for a bit, but then eventually a "fight" breaks out. Bruiser would like to be treated as kind and gentle as he is. He needs a hooman(s) who's willing to consider adopting both he and his brother and continuing the efforts to patiently keep them together - even if that means that they live separately side-by-side rather then in the same enclosure.

Cruiser also has special needs - he has back problems that affect his hind legs, at some times more than others. We wonder if perhaps moments of pain or discomfort might be what triggers Cruiser's outbursts. Either way, safety of both buns is a priority. As well as their happiness, which is why we're still trying to keep them together as they are otherwise quite bonded.

They both prefer hooman(s) that are also okay allowing them to stand on their own four feet and interacting with them down at their level. Socializing is not their strong point, so time and willingness to work with them on that is also important.

Bunnies live an average of 8-10 years, but could live up to 16 or even longer! While they do enjoy gentle pets and head rubs, bunnies generally do not like to be picked up or held as they are prey animals and it can be very scary for them. They also need lots of space to move around, run, binky and play - so no small hutches nor cages. They are social animals who want to be with you and should be accepted as part of the family. They also thrive best in bonded pairs, especially during the hours you are otherwise occupied. They need regular vet appointments just like a dog or cat and should be vaccinated against RHDV2 as soon as it is available in our area. Please do your research before adding any pet to your family. We are happy to answer any questions you may have before and after adoption, as well as assist in helping you decide if a pair of bunnies is right for you.
