Name: Buddy
Age: Two and half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Dutch, Dwarf mix
Home: Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada
   Hello everyone, my name is Buddy but often mom call me Buddy Boy. I came to live with here over a year ago.

    My previous owner abused me, hurted me, and in the end threw me in the shelter. For a long time no one wanted me or took me home. Finally, my time was up and I was ready to be put down, but thank my lucky star, the lady from bunny rescue place came and took me away. She put me in foster home. I was in foster home for almost a year, people came by to see me but I never found a forever home. Until one day this kind lady came by looking for a new friend for her girl bunny. She took me home with her to meet a beautiful Hoppy. We hit it off instantly it was a love at first sight and I knew I have found me a family.

    I have been here for almost two years now and I am happy to say that I am one of the happiest and luckiest rabbit alive. I am a free range, have a free run in the house, sleeps where I want, whenever I want. I still a bit wary when it comes to human touch or picking me up which mom seems to understand. I eat food from her hand, and like to lie down beside her but not yet willingly for her to touch me. It will take a long time for me to completely trust human again but my mom is okay with that. She accepts me for myself and she loves me very much which I have never doubt that one bit.

    Mom said "Buddy is the best" because I do not chew or damage anything and I can be leave alone unsupervised when mom at work. I am also very clean and use litter box at all time.

    You might say that I am one of the lucky one, but there are so many bunnies out there that still looking for a forever home and if I could make a wish, I will make just one and that is "Please lets those bunnies find a forever home and a wonderful family like mine."

    Thank you for reading. See ya!
