Hazel and Fiver are brown and white Dutch rabbits. Mum, Hazel, is always happy to run up to her carers when they offer her fruit and veg but she is very nervous of being picked up and stroked, which is probably the result of a negative experience when she was the victim of an uncaring breeder.

Since she has been at The Mayhew she has improved a great deal, but it will take time and patience to bring her on further.

Her son, Fiver, is the complete opposite and enjoys meeting new people and likes to be petted and stroked. He also enjoys playing. As a bonded pair, these two will make two different but very rewarding pets.
Snufflebum is a 14-16 month old tri-coloured buck Dutch rabbit. Since arriving at The Mayhew he has come out of himself and now eager to explore his surroundings. He is the naughty boy of the Mayhew rabbit community and he never fails to make his carers laugh at his antics. Snufflebum has two favourite pastimes – chilling out and playing.
His favourite trick is watching eagle-eyed from afar, waiting until his accommodation has been cleaned and freshly restocked before immediately rearranging it all in his own particular style, flipping his toys everywhere and shredding the newspaper, so thoughtfully provided by his carers for his convenience. Snufflebum is very sweet natured and thus easily forgiven. He handles well settling down for a cuddle whenever someone is prepared to spend time with him.
Since arriving at the Mayhew Snufflebum has been treated for snuffles, which may or may not recur in the future but he could be treated at Mayhew prices. Because of his former condition Snufflebum would be better suited to an environment with a steady temperature and as such would make an excellent single house rabbit in a home with adults and older children. Who could resist giving a forever home to this little sweetheart?
