      Hi everyone~ See I have my bunny in a NIC pen/cage in my room. I don’t let my shih-tzu or kitten in there since they’re not used to the bunny yet. Well I’ve slowly been letting my dog come in and she runs right up to the cage to investigate. Then my bun comes right to where my dog is to say hi. She’s never shown any aggression either. So I was thinking, if my bunny likes my dog… do you guys think she would do well bonding with another rabbit? Or is this kind of thing completely different….? Any advice sure would be appreciated  Thanks

      hi!I   i also have a shih-tzu and he did the same thing when i got the rabbit and i introduced them. slowly everyday i would let Mr. winters(my rabbit) ans Simba (the dog) out together but would monitor like a hawk..they were fine and got along but simba has a tendency to want to play with other animals and has broken a ducks neck we used to have by being to rough..so i decided against letting them out together…..simba was never aggressive with mr.winters and Im sure Mr. winters could take him but I don’t want either one of them to get hurt

      BUT i have a  cat and they get along amazingly. they sniff each other and chase each other around the room, no harm is ever done..

      In respect to how he’d do with another bun….When he ran up to the cage to say hi (the bunny) was his head up or down? Ears forward, back, midway? Did he grunt or growl at the dog at all? If he totally ran up to the dog friendly like he would to you…perhaps you could read that as : he’s not too territorial or at least doesn’t feel the need to guard his cage…which is postive!!!

      *blushes* but hey, I’m always talking people into more bunnies so….

      Well the first time it happened she ran up to see Luna(my dog) and she was excited just as if it were me coming up to the cage but after a few mins Luna barked like ‘hey come play with me!’ and my bunny kinda took a step back and her ears went back but every time since then they have been fine! Against my better judgement I’m becoming a bunny addict and wanna get another soooo bad!! I’ve even got a new cage just in case…

      If a bun seems to want to bond with another animal, it doesn’t always  mean that they will bond better with another bun.  Some rabbits find other rabbits as a direct threat to their space whereas another species it isn’t such a big deal.  On the other hand, a bun who is trying to bond with another species may want a friend. 

      It depends upon the rabbit really and the only way to find out is to take them on some dates.
