Cuddly bunnies for sale


We breed only high quality, purebred, friendly and affectionate French Lop companion pet rabbits.

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


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 we are planning litters for spring/summer/autumn


Following a year of no breeding due to the pandemic, we have now resumed and are delighted to offer purebreed French Lop youngsters to loving pet homes.

Unfortunately, our hoped-for litters of late-June didn't happen so we will try again in late-August once risks of further heatwaves have passed.

_________


If you are interested in adopting, please email rossrabbits@outlook.com and tell us a little about their potential home and accommodation and which rabbit/s you are interested in.  Please note French Lops have the potential to be large rabbits up to about 6-6.5kg so will require space to stretch out and exercise.


Thank you.

Adult available

- ready now.


Maude is our first ever black mantle girl born February 2019.  She's proven to be a first-class mum - sometimes... but other times has successfully conceived and delivered litters, then neglected them.  With this in mind, along with a recent false pregnancy, we feel the time has come to retire her.   She enjoys outdoor life, loves to roam and explore a safe garden, laze in the shade of a bush or stretch out inside a tunnel to watch her bunny friends play and has always had an eye for handsome (neutered!) bucks.   Maude has no known health issues and has never been ill.  


Maude is litter-trained so could live as a house-bunny or would be just as happy as an outdoor rabbit with a large, safe, enclosed garden to explore and maybe dig a little in, if she can be bothered.  She isn't keen on being picked up or handled so isn't a lap bunny but enjoys being fussed at ground level.  She could be the ideal partner for an older bereaved (neutered) buck or a middle-aged buck seeking romance in his latter years.

About our babies...


Medical background:  
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 £85-£95 each.  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.


Interested in adopting...??

Our Parents' photographs can be seen on ‘Our Bunnies’ page.

Please note, we breed only to maintain our lines so will not always have babies available.  We breed mostly between September-November and February-April and don't normally produce any litters during the hot summer months. However, plans may change due to the impact of Covid-19 until we are back on track with breeding.

Adoption Fees*:   Babies are priced individually at £85-95 when available.  We might also be able to arrange annual combined myxomatosis/VHD1/VHD2 vaccination at cost using the new 'RHD-Myxo Plus' triple vaccine.  

*This adoption fee is a contribution towards the upkeep of the bunnies and rearing youngsters.  There is absolutely no profit made from the sale of our surplus babies.


Target Leaving Dates
:  Will be stated for each litter, subject to weaning.  Should there be any delays or the babies progress at different rates, the alternative collection dates will be the following Friday or Saturday.  All collection dates are subject to weaning, progress and achieving target weight.  If there is any delay then we ask you to please confirm that the Friday or Saturday following the target leaving date given would also be convenient for you.   

Collection
:   All babies must be collected personally from our home near Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire.  We do not ‘ship’ bunnies either within the UK or overseas.  However, if you are unable to travel, it may occasionally be possible to meet you on a weekday eg at a motorway service station within your area if you agree to reimburse our fuel costs in advance for the return trip (45p per mile).  

How to Reserve
:  Please contact us if you are interested in adopting any of the surplus babies from one of our litters and we will forward reservation details. A  £40 deposit will secure your reservation. The balance is payable on collection day.

Deposits can be paid securely via Paypal using your credit or debit card or via online banking - please ask for our Reservation details which will provide PayPal/bank details.  Payment of your deposit will be deemed as acceptance of our Adoption Terms
and we will confirm your reservation directly with you.


We provide full written care advice and feeding information for all bunnies adopted from us along with ongoing support and advice following adoption for the lifetime of the rabbits.
