Sorry for rubbish quality pictures, i used my phone.

Went in to get my usual hay supply as i was running low and i always take a quick look.

This guy doesn't ever seem to be looked at and when in there the other day, people were saying comments such as;

"Looks like your brothers dog rather than a rabbit!"

"OMG, its got almost as much hair on its face as your mum"

Not a single nice comment, the poor little guy.

He's really scruffy and has some matted fur and muesli food, but had lots of hay and a hidey hole and clean water, so i guess thats something and the 'cage' he's in isn't tiny, but isn't huge, he's not very big himself.

He just stood out to me, over the lops and dutches in there so i went and gave him some attention, every other bun was getting loads of attention and cuddles and strokes by the public, but not this poor little fella.

Oh I'm nearly in tears looking at him as he look's so sad and he is absolutely gorgeous. He will look scruffy if they are not brushing him. Poor bunny :(

please :(

If i could take on more i would, but i just can't, both financial and space reasons along with not wanting to upset B&G.

Tuckerbunnies - i go in once a week, even if i dont need anything, just to go and give him a stroke and a bit of attention, mainly to see if he's 'okay' as in basic health. If he wasn't, i'd report them in an instant.

I can see him never being given a home :(

This is how I ended up with Max Gray. For 6 months I saw him everytime I went in, alone in a tiny cage. Noone paid any attention to him coz there was always cute littpe babies around :( And he was deemed aggressive so i couldnt see a light at the end of the tunnel for him. Eventually my resolve not to get another bunny cracked :oops: Never looked back since, hes the light of my life :D:love:
(hint hint!!)

i couldn't Gemma. I don't have the accomodation/money right now.

I've already got my eye on another bunny for the future if he is still available one day *sigh*

Just felt sorry for this one. :(

He's gorgeous, you would have thought being the typical cute fluffy bunny that he would have been snapped up long before now!

I can't believe that anyone is saying anything other than commenting on how gorgeous he is (although the your mumma hairy face joke was a little bit funny :oops:).

Poor neglected little man :(

It's good you are going in the pet shop to make sure he's ok, let's hope somebody will see what we all see in him/her and give him/her a forever home. :cry:

Aw this is how I got my Dillan. He was in the local petshop ages because he'd grown out of being a baby. They'd lowered his price by the time I got him. I was at uni at the time and was craving bunny company as I had to leave my bonded pairs at home, I just felt so sorry for him and wanted him to have a good start. Who knows where he'd be if I hadn't have got him.

I'm very glad I bought him though and just think it was meant to be.

I feel the same. He is absolutely beautiful. I simply can't understand why other people wouldn't feel the same. I'd have him in an instant if I could. Poor wee mite.

i think i saw this bunny today is the pet shop part of a garden centre ?

Oh, poor bunny :( I think he is gorgeous! That's how I got Beano, just couldn't leave her there. My garden centre doesn't sell rabbits anymore as nobody was buying them, they got a couple of giants in and they were there for months :( I saw a beautiful dutch boy who would always come binkying up to the side of his pen to see me, I used to love stroking him and watching him. I really wish I could've got him but had no where to keep him and couldn't afford to get him neutered or anything. I still think about him and really hope he's in a good home now.

We have just taken an extra bun today who has been in the 'rescue' side of a large pet store for the last three months and has been looking more and more depressed each time I saw him.

Tonight he's been sat on my lap watching TV. Our other four don't know he's here yet... ssshhh....:lol::lol::lol:

If someone wants to give a home to the poor little bun Graham has seen, I'd be happy to help in a bunny run! We live in South Wales but can easy get to M4 or M5 etc!!

Aww poor thing. :cry: That's how I ended up with Jasper. :oops: He had been in the pet shop in a tiny cage for over 3 months, no one wanted him because he was an adult. :cry: I just couldn't leave him. :( Best decision I could have made when considering a pet shop bun though :love:
