I have a black Silver Fox rabbit with brown eyes. She is very friendly and never bites or scratches. She can go outside without a lead because she never runs away and she used to be an amazing jumper and runner but she is to old now. She is 7 years old and would fall over if she tried a jump but can still run quite fast. She can be handled very easily and makes a very good show rabbit because whenever I take her to the Marymas fair their is a pet show and I enter her and my dog Cody. Apart from Wispper their are normally about 30 dogs and she always looks very calm and wins 1st place!


           Re Oscar the silver fox

- Emma, 14 July 2012

I had a beautiful silver fox rabbit, called Oscar. He was intelligent, enjoyed going for walks to parks and beaches, and he even enjoyed coming on holiday to our friends caravan. He had a carry bag, so I could take him into town, and he was always interested in what was going on around him. As a breed I have heard they are one of the friendliest, and people always commented on how sociable he was; he never showed any fear when 'meeting' new people, or going into new situations. He was my best friend and a wonderful rabbit.
