Hazel (aka Hazelnut)
Female - will be spayed prior to adoption
New Zealand mix
Medium Size ~ 6.2 lbs
Born March 2019
Hazel is a beautiful, all-white New Zealand mix who was rescued from a terrible hoarding situation in Texas earlier this year. Inspired by the book Watership Down, Hazel's foster mom decided to rename this bun after the protagonist Hazel who becomes "chief rabbit" of a group who flee from a disaster and create a new home on a hill called Watership Down. Quite fitting for the disaster that Hazel fled from!
Hazel, born in March 2019, is six pounds of pure white fluff. Her back story makes it easy to understand why she's a bit shy and jumpy to new things. Her foster mom is currently working with her to help her understand that humans are safe and loving. She has warmed up considerably, given her tough start in life, now allowing her head to be pet.
While not a big fan (yet) of pets, Hazel is a BIG fan of binkies! She jumps with pure joy and abandon around her enclosure and makes soft grunts of happiness. She flops herself on the ground with her back legs straight out behind her.
Hazel has great litter box skills too and enjoys chewing on her cardboard and wood bunny castle. As for eating, she's a fan of her timothy hay, romaine, pellets, and broccoli. Like most bunnies, she loves bananas! She's not too sure about strawberries (or any other fruit) but is trying out new foods every day.
Hazel wants to be loved (it will take time to learn how) and will lay quietly next to her foster mom. She is seeking her furever home with the right person who will give her love, acceptance, and patience.
