Scooby – Birthday October, 1st 2020

I got Scooby from a breeder in Zanesville, Ohio in November 2020. He is a fixed male. He comes with all his food and house. He is a chewer has eaten alot of his house. Scooby was an indoor bunny until June 2022. He did use a litter box when he was inside but didn’t always use the litter box. Since being outside he is so much happier. I do have a cage around his house so he is never locked in the house. He will come up to you for pets. Needs someone to work with him to get him use to being held again. Went on vacation in 2021 for a week and when we came home he did not want to be held anymore. I honestly don’t know what to do for a bunny outside during the winter. Please let me know if anyone in interesting in helping me find Scooby a perfect home for him. Any questions please for hesitate for call or text me 740-243-6865. Thanks, Tasha Sprouse
