A giant dog-sized rabbit on hunt for new home

A giant rabbit the size of a dog is looking for a new home.

The "mischievous" seven-month-old bunny, named Atlas, is on the hunt for a new owner after his carers handed him into Scottish SPCA centre in Cardonald, Glasgow, because they could no longer look after the lovable bouncy creature.

Centre manager Anna O'Donnell said: "Atlas is already about the size of a westie and is still young with some growing to do. He is a very friendly rabbit who loves attention and getting cuddles. Atlas is also an inquisitive boy who makes everyone laugh with his mischievous character. We are looking for a specific home for Atlas due to his breed and size."

However, the animal centre has warned that any potential owners will need to be clued up on how to care for a rabbit Atlas' size and provide him with a home big enough for him.

Anna explained: "A standard rabbit hutch won't do so his new owner will need plenty of space for him. Atlas needs an owner with the knowledge to properly care for him, so ideally someone who has kept a continental giant before."
