More Success Stories! > Elvis-the-dancer
We adopted Elvis, originally named Skyler, in January 2007 after he had been fostered for several months with his brothers and sisters (one of his sisters happens to be Violet who was recently adopted).
When we first adopted him, Elvis was incredibly skittish and shy, but over the years, we've really been able to see his personality shine. He's an incredible dancer and loves to show off his goofy moves to our cats, who try to ignore him :) He settled in really well and knows our daily routine. He sleeps in his two-story condo at night and gets his breakfast of fresh veggies every morning with the occasional banana (his FAVORITE treat) before I leave for school. He gets his supervised playtime on a daily basis and just loves to explore. His funny antics sure keep us amused and there is never a dull moment with him. I don't recall every meeting a rabbit who is as goofy as this boy.
In the spring of 2009, Elvis was diagnosed with calcium stones in his bladder. He underwent surgery to have them removed and endured a nearly two-week long stay at the veterinary hospital. We were really scared that we were going to lose him, but fortunately he pulled through and made a full recovery. Now he's back to his spunky old self. I'm hoping that one day, when the economy gets better, we can introduce a new bunny into the family as a companion for him. I just want to thank everyone at Rabbit Haven, including all of the staff, volunteers and foster parents who do such an incredible job with the bunnies. Without you, we never would have brought this fuzzy bundle of joy into our lives.
Such a cutie!
Here's our original posting about Elvis, back when his name was 'Skyler':
Skyler is a 6 month old Lionhead mix, another of the litter left on the doorstep of the Humane Society. He is the largest of all his siblings at about 4 1/2 lbs. He is very adventurous and is a great escape artist - recently I've decided his name really should be Houdini.
He would really love a home where he could be in a large ex pen with lots of supervised playtime. He likes to be petted but as with most bunnies he does not like to be held for long - he wants to be busy. His antics will keep you very amused. He will do best in a home without small children.
Check out Elvis' dance moves! There's a slow section in the middle...but stick with it, because there are some great performances at the end!
