|It absolutely breaks my heart but we cannot keep both of our Flemish Giants due to a recent life change that has us dramatically downsizing. I would never get rid of Lady Beatrice if it was an option however she will not be happy with the extremely limited space we will have. She is young and resilient and will bond wonderfully with a new family!|
Name: Lady Beatrice
Breed: Flemish Giant; Color: Fawn
Birthday: 4/2/17, currently 6 months of age.
Spayed @ 15 weeks, healed beautifully (spaying for a female Flemish is $500). She is a spirited bunny who loves to play "thump and run" with Her Papa. She is curious and loves having outdoor time to run around and binkie (rabbit jumps and twists). She is litter box trained and has not had an accident in house besides dropping a little poo nugget when she got startled! She is allowed to roam free when we are home. She prefers to have indoor and outdoor time (in a fenced in backyard) and I think she could easily be trained to use a doggy door. She sleeps in her indoor cage at night but has lots of time to move about and play during the day. She is very smart and though a little standoffish will win your heart over fast! She also gets along with our small dog and is great with kids as long as they are not holding her. She likes to be petted but being held is not her favorite thing unless she feels secure (wrapped in a blanket, no flailing feet).
She is used to being a spoiled bunny and her diet consists of Oxbow Young Rabbit Food (unlimited amount always available until age 1yr) + fresh greens daily and hay always available as well as homemade dehydrated papaya treats - her fave! We have kept her on an organic diet and she had had 0 health problems besides ear mites when we first got her. She has not been allowed on the sofa and has respected the rules wonderfully. She's not much a cord destroyer! We do have a dog puzzle that we modified for her and she likes to have a variety of toys and chews available. As long as she has things to explore she is not destructive! She is currently about 8 lbs but will be 16lbs-20lbs full grown.
This is not a little rabbit to put in a cage and bring out once and a while. Lady Beatrice is an intelligent and active bunny needs someone to chase her around the yard or house sometimes (kids or a kind dog would be great). She deserves a home where she will be treated like family. Think of her more like an independent dog/cat than a rabbit as far as daily care goes. If she lives inside only she will need a large enough cage to move around in and jump in plus time to run around the house when you are home. We will provide you with a litter box + food and supplies to get started. We have found a great affordable for solution for her litter box - we use wood stove pellets (from Lowe's) and top it with hay. This needs changed about every 3 days depending on how much time she spends outside. She is not stinky at all and keeps herself very clean. Brushing frequently with a furminator is the best way to keep shedding under control. HOWEVER if you have dog or cat allergies she can be a great option! My husband has dog allergies and has had 0 problems with the rabbits.
She could also be an outdoor rabbit if you have a large hutch and run for her. She needs shelter to stay dry and warm but has to have airflow to keep cool in the winter. We would be more than happy discussing solutions for your home if you are interested in adopting our big girl!
I did not know Flemish Giants were even a thing until we came across our first and once you have one you will be IN LOVE! They are amazing animals and WAY cooler with WAY more personality than you would ever expect from a rabbit. If you have questions or want more info please let me know!!! I would want to see the setup she would be moving to in order to guarantee she will have a proper home and can have the smoothest transition possible. We talked to our vet about it (she's amazing and I will give you her info too), and she thinks Lady B will have a little sadness as she transitions but should perk back up and be situated in her new home within a couple weeks.
We have to find her a home in the next month but I refuse to settle for anything less than a wonderful parent for Lady Beatrice. Thank you and please share this with any animal lover you know!
Adoption Fee: $50 - will include litter box, litter, hay, treats, toys and a month supply of Oxbow Young Rabbit pellets.
