Plenty of Pets
Lucas is a one-year-old boy who is sweet and cuddly.
He’s good with rabbit-savvy kids and loves to explore - and escape his pen. He does not like dogs.
Because he’s long haired, he needs to be brushed for about 10 - 15 minutes every day or two to prevent mats.
Lucas has been neutered and is litter trained, and he’s ready for a indoor home.
The tidal bore will be coming in at 4:39 p.m. today.
