He is easy to handle making him a good choice for a family with polite children who will approach him calmly and gently. His gorgeous, thick coat will regular brushing - something he really enjoys.

Journey is a lovely rabbit – he is easy to pick up, enjoys being petted, and loves to run through tunnels and dig in bedding made out of old phone books. He’s very curious, so his new family should provide him with a variety of rabbit safe toys like wicker items for chewing, toys made for birds, cardboard boxes, and empty paper towel rolls. He will need plenty of indoor space to run around, explore, and get his exercise. What a fun bunny! ADOPTED
