I got my first 2 bunnies from out pet store and I now have realized that I don't want to do that anymore! I just don't know about shelters here that have them!

I am not really that close to West Palm Beach! That is the other coast! I live in the Tampa Bay Area!

You can find every type of rabbit in shelters too! Large rabbits are very common in shelters because often people don't relize how big they'll get when they get them as tiny little babies. But serously, I've seen some of the cutest rabbits in shelters, all sizes and colors!

He's doing really well, thanks! He's like a combination between a puppy and a giant teddy bear. He hops all over the house and sleeps behind my husbands easy chair. He comes and sits right on my feet when he wants me to pet him - so there is no escape lol.

He's so awesome - I'm really really happy we adopted him. Even my husband (whose first reaction was "What in the **** kind of mutant rabbit did you bring home?!?") has grown really attached to him.

Congratulations, he's truly a lovely looking rabbit - looks pretty relaxed already too I think you'll really enjoy him. I have a 1 1/2 yr old female and she's quite the character. She knows exactly what she wants and doesn't take no for an answer. Let us know what you name him.
