Chief and Shawnee
Chief and Shawnee were put outside to fend for themselves where they lived under a deck with a 1 ft. clearance. After nearly a year, their plight was brought to the attention of a police officer and from there to the Missouri House Rabbit Society. Upon rescue Chief was discovered to have a severely broken back leg that had probably been that way for some time. An attempt was made to surgically repair the break, but the bone shattered away from the metal plate leaving the rescue group with the decision to euthanize or amputate the leg. This was a tough decision. Chief had a wonderful disposition, but the cost was a severe burden and who was likely to adopt a three legged, four year old Flemish Giant rabbit? However, between veterinary and friend help, the choice to amputate was made. During the entire ordeal, Chief’s fighting spirit and constant affection towards people was an inspiration for everyone. In the meantime, Shawnee had been kept separate for her spay and it had been several months apart for them due to Chief’s surgeries, recovery, and then neuter. The plan was, hopefully, to reunite them.
During an adoption visit, a couple interested in a Flemish spotted Shawnee and fell in love with her. They hadn’t considered two bunnies, but hearing the whole story about Chief and Shawnee they asked about putting them back together. Enough time had passed since their spay/neuter to see if they were still interested in each other without hormones being involved. It was clear to all they were and the two are now happy in their new home. There was even a special ramp made so that Chief could get up onto the couch to sit with his new family and next to Shawnee.
