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.
