looking into getting a flemmish giant, but not sure what to expect about behavior. Ive had a lionhead, a dwarf, and a rex in the past. One was agressive, one was destructive, and one was just like a cat...

My question is, with flemmish giants being so big, what can I expect in terms of temperment and behavior? I know every bunny is different, but im looking for personal experiences, things that are possibilities to happen, that have happened, etc. Any input?

Normally the larger the rabbit, the friendlier and calmer it is. Though, things are different since Dwarf breeds (Mini Rex and Holland Lop) have become popular. This all does depend on the rabbit, and the situation it grew up in. Where do you plan on getting the rabbit? If it is from a breeder it is more likely to trust you, but if it is from a rescue and it has been rejected it will take longer to warm up to you. Also, do you plan on getting it spayed/neutered? If you spay and neuter the rabbit, it will change the rabbit just a little. The rabbit will be less likely to destroy things, use the bathroom outside of the litter box, and will be less aggressive.

There is a breeder near me. I wanted to rescue but they seem to be in short supply here. I am 100% pro neuter/spay if at least for the sake of health and reducing cancers and other health complications. Thank you for the info :) its very helpful
