Question Baby Bunnies?

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I've visited hamster central, so I thought I'd check in now. Sorry in advance for this post being a little longer than usual.

So recently I've been interested in getting a bunny. I've always wanted a dog, but if I'm being honest with myself I don't think I'd be able to get one. I started looking for other pets and I saw that bunnies can free roam, which is really great. I think the reason I wanted a dog so much is that I could walk around the house with him/her and not have to worry about losing my pet.

I currently own a syrian hamster named Sriracha and he lets me pet him and sometimes pick him up (still working on the picking up part). Sriracha is hamster #3 after Wasabi and Cupid who were both adopted. Sriracha however was bought from the pet store. I'd went shopping for hamster supplies a few times (before I bought him) and every time a few hamsters would be bought (by others of course), but Sriracha would always be left, so I decided to get him. I went home, cleaned the cage, bought food, restocked on bedding, shopped for new hamster toys, and finally bought and brought Sriracha home. He's been doing great and seems pretty happy in his new home.

I'm not sure what made me want to get another pet, but I'm thinking about getting a bunny. I'd of course keep Sriracha and they would be kept in separate places.

There are a few different breeds I'm interested in. The breeds are a Mini Rex, a Dutch, a Dwarf Hotot, a Netherland Dwarf, a Californian, a Harlequin, a Havana, or a Himalayan. I've done lots of research and am beginning to gather supplies for the bunny, but I still haven't decided which type I want.

I've never done a poll before but I'm going to try this time. Please let me know which bunny you think I should get (if I can't get the poll to work please just reply with the breed name). Also if you have any tips feel free to share them. Thank you so much.

I have 6 rabbits. A group of 4 who live in a shed/aivary combo and 2 house rabbits who live in the dining room.

I would always get a vonded pair from a reputable rescue. Choose ones that appeal to you. It saves so much hassel with bonding and expense with having them neutered.

The rabbits united forum have a list of recommended rescues all around the world.

Good luck. They are such lovely creatures.

Hi! Thanks for the advice.

I do plan on adopting instead of buying but was having a little trouble finding a rescue near me. Thanks for letting me know about rabbits united.

Personally, I think bunnies are adorable. I would pick a short haired one because of grooming. I really like big rabbits (Flemish giants). They can weigh up to 50 pounds!

Hi! Thanks for the tip.

I also think bunnies are super cute. I'll make sure to remember the tip about short haired rabbits and grooming.

Hello!
I have 4 bunnies. 2 sets of bonded pairs. Please join House Rabbit Society group on FB, great source for bunny related questions.
From my experience, bunnies are high maintenance pets, and expensive to keep. Exotic vetting is expensive for bunny medical care.
They are prone to GI stasis which can be life threatening, temperature sensitive, can’t tolerate heat or cold weather.
Dwarf breeds are prone to dental disease, due to face structures. They must be brushed regularly to prevent hair ball gut blockage.
They can be litter box trained, however, they poop A LOT, due to they are hine gut animals, that needs hay 24/7.
Bunnies should not be caged They are very active, and need large space to live. They can be destructive, in that, they will chew cords, base boards home needs to be bunny proof if bunny free roams the house.
Bunnies diet is mostly good quality Timothy hay, and mix of bunny safe veggies/greens daily.
Limited pellets.
They need toys, chews since their teeth like hamsters, continues to grow.
They are interesting animals, that can bond with humans, although most don’t like to be picked up, or touched much.
Bunnys are very intelligent, and social, which do best with another bunny.
They must be spayed & neutered for health reasons.
If you have the time, space & the funds, they do make for nice pets.

Hi! Wow, thanks for all the info.

Thanks for letting me know about the house rabbit society and it's so cool that you have 4 bunnies. I plan on getting 2 bunnies that will free roam. Thanks for letting me know about the health concerns and the info about the dwarf breeds. I am starting to bunny proof the house and buy lots of toys for them.

Do you have any recommendations on what breed I should get?
