Cuddly bunnies for sale


We breed only high quality, purebred, friendly and affectionate French Lop and, in the past, very occasional French Lop x Continental Giant companion pets.

As we are very small-scale, non-commercial hobbyist pet owners/breeders producing only a few litters per year, we won't always have babies available for adoption but we do keep a waiting list of enquirers.  So, if you're interested in welcoming one of our bunnies into your home or garden for a lifetime of love, fuss and cuddles, then please get in touch.  
 

All of our babies are:

  • handled from birth

  • gregarious and fully-socialised as companion pets.  

  • most will also be litter-trained to become perfect house-bunnies

  • used to lots of attention, handling, fuss, cuddles and pampering

  • Vaccinated against myxomatosis and VHD1


We normally keep a few girls from each litter but all boys produced and any surplus girls will be available for adoption by loving pet homes

Our French Lops are companion pets and are available to to permanent and loving pet homes only.

Sorry, no babies available at present - 

but litters are due in late-May. 


Spring is here in the garden and the buns are starting to get frisky again so matings are now taking place and litters are hoped for in late-May.  All boys produced will be available for adoption by loving pet homes. We will retain several girls from the litters to continue our lines but any surplus will also be offered for adoption and will appear here once the litters are 4 weeks old - so watch this space and our Facebook page for updates!


The following matings have take place:

Ursula (black otter) x Olaf (frosty point) - pregnancy confirmed


Ola (chinchilla) x Tango (orange) - Delivered


Lia (ruby-eye white) x Tango (orange) - pregnancy confirmed

Molly (opal butterfly) x Olaf (frosty point) - Delivered




We're hoping for a wide range of colours: orange, black otter, black fox, chinchilla, frosty point, blue, agouti and these could be self-colours or butterfly pattern.  A few other colours are possible, including chocolate. 
 All babies will be handled from birth, fully-socialised as companion pets and litter-training starts at 4 weeks so they'll be about 99.5% litter-trained on leaving which will make them perfect housebunnies.


If you would like to receive reservation details, just email rossrabbits@outlook.com and we will forward reservation information by return.



About our babies...


Medical background and vaccinations:  
All of our babies will be vaccinated against myxomatosis and VHD1 before leaving (chargeable at cost) using the combined annual Myxo/VH1D vaccine and a Certificate of Vaccination will be issued. All babies will be treated with an anticoccidiostat either via ACS pellets or oral Baycox at 5 and 6 weeks to guard against coccidiosis (which can attack the liver and/or intestines) to give our babies the best possible start in life.

Care:
We will provide full comprehensive care information, feeding details and ongoing support and advice for all bunnies adopted from us throughout their lives.  We care deeply for our bunnies' ongoing welfare and are always here to provide support and answer any questions following their adoption.

Adoption fee:
 Our babies are priced at £75 each.  The combined Myxo/VHD1 annual vaccination is charged at cost. We will also provide a voucher offering 30 days free insurance, on request.  There is absolutely no 'profit' from the sale of kits and any income goes directly into their kitty as a small token contribution towards the buns' feeding and care costs.  We do not breed for profit or income!

How to adopt:
If you would like to adopt, please let us know your preferred choice of kits. We will require a completed Bunny Reservation Form for each kit or pair of kits reserved.  This is required by Law for all live animal adoptions in the UK.  

Breeding Policy:  
We breed only to maintain, improve and add new colours to our lines by retaining girls from litters.  We usually offer most boys produced for adoption and we adopt carefully selected 'outside' bucks as studs to introduce new and complimentary gene pools and bloodlines.  

If you would like to receive reservation information, just email rossrabbits@outlook.com and we’ll forward details by return.
