Sprinter, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sprinter
Age: Two months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Dutch cross Rabbit
Home: Vancouver, Canada
   This is our baby bunny Sprinter! He is a two-month-old Dutch cross, but we're not sure what other breed he's been crossed with. We got him from the SPCA during one of our regular visits to the bunny room. Sprinter was so friendly, inquisitive and playful that we couldn't resist giving him a bigger home to play in - ours! He was skin and bones when we first brought him into our home. But now, after lots of timothy hay and pellets, he has put on a bit more weight and truly lives up to his name. Several times a day, he will suddenly leap into action and sprint around his cage, pausing to peer over the corners, dart around obstacles and into his cardboard box, before coming back out and bounding onto the roof of his box. He does this so quickly that our eyes can hardly keep up!

    His other hobbies include playing with willow branch balls, grooming, peering into cardboard rolls, and listening to music (it always puts him into a trance!) He's just a great little guy!
