Sandy is a 1 year old buck rabbit who originally came to the Mayhew as a 2 month old kit.  He was bonded with a non-Mayhew rabbit that has since died and sadly Sandy is looking for a new forever home and partner. Since he has grown he has become the most handsome young man.


With his light coloured fur and a small patch of black around the right hand side of his neck, resembling a lion’s mane, he has striking good looks that everyone comments on.

Sandy has always been shy and gentle. He loves being around people and other rabbits and is very inquisitive but will keep his distance preferring to watch, letting them make the first move. Once he has given his trust, he lets you know, giving little nudges of appreciation and by being around and about you generally. He loves to be stroked on the nose and tickled behind the ears.

The trick is to let him get used to you gradually before making a sudden approach. Kind words and encouragement go a long way with him. Sandy dislikes noise and sudden movements and for this reason he will be better homed in a quiet environment preferably with adults or older children only. He is easily handled providing you are confident with him and he feels secure and with the right TLC he soon learns here is nothing to fear.

Sandy has been a house rabbit but could equally be an outdoor pet. He will be bonded with another, perhaps more confident, Mayhew rabbit and will, therefore, be homed as one of a pair. Alternatively, if the right partner cannot be found he could be bonded with a non-Mayhew rabbit looking for a partner.


Gus is a lop eared male, he is a chunky but truly charming chap who simply loves people and being around them.  As soon as someone walks by he runs up and down excitedly trying to catch their attention.  If this fails to work then he picks up the nearest object in his mouth such as a toy or piece of paper and frantically rushes around whilst looking as cute as he possibly can.


This usually does the trick and the lucky person is then treated to the full Gus repertoire.  This includes standing on his hind legs with his front paws on the person’s leg, nudging the person and following them when they try to leave. Gus is a fearless rabbit who doesn’t always know what’s good for him and who has the capacity to get into all sorts of scrapes through his curiosity in exploring and meeting other rabbits and animals.

Luckily his trust in people sees him through as he nearly always comes back to them when he is called. His new carers will need to keep an eye on his antics and be careful that he does not get underfoot.

Gus is confident and lively rabbit who is used to older children and to being handled. He would make an excellent indoor or outdoor rabbit but above all he will need constant company plus a stimulating environment to satisfy his love of life. Gus will either be paired with another Mayhew rabbit or could bonded with a pet rabbit looking for a companion.
