Shall I get Thor a friend?

  1. No, at his age he is possibly better off alone

    Hi there!

    I have a very lonely male rabbit, 6 years old, I cant remember what breed he is.!

    His name is Thor and he used to have a brother Loki and lots of friends, Thor is now the only one left and I am concerned he is very very lonely.

    Thor was always super super dominant and sometimes aggressive towards the other rabbits (never in a biting way? Just he has to be first to eat and he used to chase them,)

    He has been on his own now for about a year and has calmed down a lot, he is now being very loving and affectionate.

    Thor is neutered and has never ever had any health issues.

    Thor has lived with both boys and girls but I think preferred living with other boys.

    In other people's opinion, should I get him a friend? And what breed, sex and age?

    Yes you can definitely try a new bond, do you have any rescues near you who can help?

    Breed and age are actually irrelevant to a bond, the only thing the bun cares about is personality. It’s finding a match which doesn’t want to over dominate or ignore him which is tricky. A good rescue may have a few options to try him with.

    My old girl was widowed after losing her brother aged 11. She’s now rebonded with a husbun twice her size and only a year old, he’s a big softy and she was desperately lonely and not dominant at all, love at first sight as he was too gentle for younger ladies and would just get beat up.
