My Penelope is a dwarf himylan (sp?) She is so cute and little. She is 2 and 3/4 pounds. She weighs nothing at all. And she is full of personality. I adopted her from the SPCA. I was worried because I heard dwarfs were nippy. But she was so sweet every time I saw her at PetSmart (the spca brings kids there) she was so people oriented. If you spoke to her she would come right up and sniff your face. She still loves faces. She comes right up and in my face.
I love when she gets happy and tosses her head. She also binkys so cute.
My other (not sure what they are) two don't binky. I think they are so spoiled they don't realize that all bunnies don't have the run of their own bedroom all day long. They have a huge 4 level cage that is never locked. They do love the top level.
I cannot wait until all 3 are happily bonded.d

Is Zeus fixed? I heard they are easier to box train if they are and they are a little less aggressive. Personally I don't want to because he isn't around any other bunnies male or female.

My Oliver (who is not a dwarf) is neutered. He seems a lot more laid back since the neuter. All the bunnies are fixed. I really think they are happier since it was done. They are much more relaxed without all those unnecessary hormones.

Zeus isn't fixed yet, no - but he's going to be this summer.

He's really good with his letter box still, which is good. He does get aggressive sometimes though, especially inside his cage.

I think it depends on the bun. I've heard of some being really good with the litterbox even when they're not fixed - and some being horrable with it then getting the hang of it after getting fixed.

I think it's good to fix them either way...who what's a broken bunny?

Haha, really though, it cuts down on aggression, spraying, stuff like that, and can make training easier if your having problems.

My Oliver was good with the litter box before he was fixed. And he is even better now. But Ophelia was awful until we had her fixed. She never peed in the box. She would go next to it and it would be all under the box. It was a mess. Since I picked her up from her spay she has been excellent. Well, that is not completely the truth. Since I have brought Penelope in someone has been acting out a bit and I suspect it's Ophelia. But I cannot blame her for marking. I need to get them bonded so it stops.
Penelope learned to use a litter box within a week of me getting her. And she has been really good ever since.
They are so easy once they are litter trained.
