My sister has two rabbits she got from rescue. Unlike the dog world, the rabbit rescue people do not seem to like rabbit show people. It seems to be that the rabbit breeding gets out of hand very quickly (they are bunnies!) and the rescue ends up trying to find homes when a breeder can't contain things.
I haven't met my sister's rabbits but I hear stories all the time. One is a 12 pounder (a Checkered Giant--very striking looks) and I am pretty sure he could beat up my dogs! The other is somewhat smaller, but still a good-sized rabbit. My sister keeps them as house rabbits--loose in the house like our dogs. They are very smart-get excited when she comes home, like to be petted, use a litter box, plot escapes, chew up her stuff, etc.
