Dominic


Hi! My name is Dominic. I’m a little guy with a big personality: curious, intelligent, and self-assured. I have excellent litterbox habits; you will not find a stray poop outside of my “powder room.”

When it comes to food, I’m the lapine and vegetarian equivalent of a “meat and potatoes guy”. Just give me romaine lettuce, kale, and flat parsley, with occasional broccoli. None of that fancy mixed or Asian greens, no thanks! Oh, but I have a sweet tooth (who doesn’t?): I love berries, nectarines, apples, peaches, grapes, bananas, dried cranberries- Yum!

I am physically fit and pretty active. If there were a Bunny Olympics, I would be a track and field champion! I am an agile jumper: I can clear 3 feet! (My foster family had to get a taller ex-pen for me, ha-ha). When I am out for my playtime I like to start with a circuit: zip down the hallway, up the stairs, and back to the kitchen. You should see my binkies! When I have some freedom to run and explore, I am a happy guy!

Speaking of running and exploring, I like space, and lots of it. I live in the aforementioned ex-pen that cordons off part of a large room. I have lots of cardboard flats and paper to chew on. My favorite chew toys are willow balls, paper, and untreated wood blocks. I also like this little plastic
barrel that has a bell in it- I grasp it with my teeth and give it a shake.

I’m pretty good at figuring things out. When I want to get from Point A to a (higher) Point B (ahem), I stand on my hind legs and assess the situation. The assessment may take a few hours or a few days. Boy, did I surprise my mom when she discovered a half-eaten nectarine on the kitchen table!!

Expending all that energy, I need my down time. That¹s when I seek refuge in my cardboard box or under the pantry shelf. Or, I will sprawl out under the kitchen table and snooze.

I’ve been in foster care for a little over a year. Why so long, you wonder? Sigh- Well . . . despite my athletic build and handsome face, I’m a red-eyed white (REW), and REW are like the “plain Janes” of the bunny world. Still, my foster family and I are hopeful that my forever family is out there somewhere: a loving, patient, stimulating individual, couple, or family with older children, and perhaps a sweet ladybun to soothe my restless heart.

Dominic is a darling little guy! He was really shy at first, but he has truly blossomed in his foster home. These days, he comes right up to the edge of the pen to greet us, and he enjoys being petted.

He is very curious, often standing on his hind legs to check out anything and everything!

He is a bundle of energy and a good jumper. He figured out how to go up and down the stairs very quickly. My daughter wrote these observations about Dominic’s first excursion:

Here he is, at one of his favorite spots- the top of the stairs- looking wistfully at the rooms he is not allowed in!

He enjoys his outside-the-pen time so much: When he wants to go out, he rattles the pen with his teeth, and once he’s out, he does great binkies to show his joy! He would love to be a free range bunny, and to his credit, he does very well with his litterbox. Being the small fellow that he is, he can squeeze into narrow spaces, so be sure to bunny-proof your home!
