Cross posting from RSPCA website:

SMARTIE
Breed: Flemish Giant Rabbit
Colour: Agouti
Age: 3-6 Months

Details:
Smartie is one of four cracking baby girls who were born at the centre, they're all really friendly, bouncy girls. They are going to be big rabbits as their mother is a flemish giant, so there new home will need to be very spacious. If they are to live outside, a shed with a run attached would be ideal for each girl, also they would need the company of a male bunny so they don't get lonely. Or they could go singly as a housebunny. They would all be suitable for children and would make a wonderfol addition to the family.

Location:
Block Fen Animal Centre
R S P C A, Block Fen Animal Centre

4 year old Dolly and boyfriend Bob who is 6 -he's a Dwarf x Lionhead (well probably )
Dolly weighs in t about 8kg
Good luck hope you find a needy bun but please consider getting her a friend -castrated buck is best as bunnies need company without it they become lonely and temperamental.

I have a giant in if you are interested. Very nice nature.

Lola is pretty huge

I have a photo of her next to a tin can if you want to see how big she is. She needs to go with her friend though.

i'm not sure about having two i know its nicer for the bunny to have a companion but from a selfish point of view i prefere to spend more one on one time with the bunny i have always had single buns who haven't been been suitable to be paired up with another and i have enjoyed the one on one time during the day etc as i am home most of the time i am always available to spend a lot of time with a rabbit.

the bun i went to see on saturday went off to a new home as i turned up, i have been offered another loan french lop male who is lonely at the moment because he is left all day on his own in a cage so i am considering him, i will have a think about lola and her friend though as they do look very cute

i have finally found my bunny, i went to go and meet a flemish giant who was gorgeous but she had a lot of interest but whilst i was meeting her a rabbit escaped from one of the pens and the lady shouted to her partner "that rabbit" has escaped agin so he came out armed with thick gloves to try and catch her. i was told by the woman that she isn't friendly and keeps attacking people so i wanted to meet her i managed to pick her up and she laid quite happily in my arms for a good 20 minutes the couple were shocked so i decided to bring her home, she is quite nervous at the moment but it shouldn't take her long to settle in i am going to grandually introduce her to toys and fresh food as she was only on cheap food and no hay


i do need help deciding on a name for her though so if anyone has any suggestions as i don't think "that rabbit" is suitable for any bunny[attachment=0:155n9nt5]bunny.JPG[/attachment:155n9nt5]
