    :confused:Hello, i had a neutured male rabbit(Guiness) living with an unneutured female dutch rabbit(Chia). 2 weeks ago Chia died and since then Guiness has looked very depressed and isn't eating properly. I wa wondering if i got another rabbit for him, if it would have to be a dutch, or can't they tell the difference?

    Oh sorry about the death of Chia! :(

    Getting Guiness a friend would be a great idea and should definitely cheer him up!

    You can bond any breed of rabit with any breed, gettingn one more or less the same age woudl be good just make sure you do the bonding process correcrly so that they dont fight and hurt each other x

    i would find your nearest rescue home and they will find him a neurtered doe and will help bond him to her, it dont have to be a perticular breed. he will just be happy to have a wife again.
    good luck
