    Hi!

    Not sure if this is the right location for this thread, but I am looking to get a bond partner for my bun! I would prefer a female, solely based on the fact that Appa is a buck and it would be so cute to get a little girlfriend for him! LOL

    My buck is still intact, but I do plan on neutering him very soon. The female would also get spayed if she wasn't already. But I just have a few questions about matching bunnies together.

    I know it's hard because some buns just do not like each other and there isn't anything we can do about that, but I guess I'm looking for tips and tricks for the safest and easiest ways to introduce a doe to a buck? I've heard of "rabbit dating", but I'm not sure any of the breeders in my area would be comfortable with me bringing my buck to them and having him meet the does there.

    I am so nervous about bringing home a female that I chose and Appa not liking her. I'd rather let him choose, because in the end, they're the ones sharing a home together. I just wanted to know maybe certain breeds get along better than others or if I should go for another buck instead?

    And do age differences matter? Appa is still only about 3 months old, so I'm looking for another rabbit around the same age or a little older or younger. I just think introducing an older rabbit to such a junior is not a good idea, but if it doesn't matter all that much, then there are some adult rabbits I've found in my area that would be perfect.

    Any info helps!
