About Copper

Breed: Lop Age: 1-2 years (approx) Sex: Male

HOUSE RABBIT Copper was in shock when he was rescued by the RSPCA inspector. He was found living free roaming in a property alongside dogs, one of whom attacked him. He was underweight, producing soft poops and having difficulty to gain weight. A test revealed he had a parasitic burden (coccidia) that typically derives from poor husbandry. After 10 weeks in our care he still produces the odd soft poop and needs to be housed indoors for preventative measures and to closely monitor his dietary intake. He eats hay aplenty, enjoys small amounts of greens and the odd sneaky pellets. He would be ideal for bonding with a neutered ladybun on a similar diet.

Copper is an independent boy who is full of energy and character and loves his food. Copper likes to hang out in different places in his pen, which could be on-top of his cardboard box or chilling in his hay rack. Copper loves new toys and enjoys searching through his hay tubes and finding a particular strand of hay that takes his fancy as well as the odd treat that we hide in it. This keeps him occupied for a while before he’s searching for something else to do. Copper is still growing in confidence and gets a bit nervous with sudden movements or loud noises. He will happily hang out next to you while you sit with him in his pen but is still getting used to head rubs.

Due to his stressful past he is looking for a quiet home without children, dogs or cats. A sensitive and committed adopter who will take the time to build his trust and a bond with him is essential. If you would like offer him a home then please email
