    Rabbits may seem to poop a lot, but as long as they're round and hard, he should be fine

Besides taking it to the vet to get teeth shortened, Is it going to need shots or any other vet treatments?

    There are two shots that are required for bunnies - just one time initial shots.  Myxomatosis and Viral Hemorrhagic Disease (VHD) are the two shots that are required.  You will most likely want to spay or neuter your bunny as well because it just makes for a better pet.  I haven't heard (and I didn't do it) ever take bunnies to the vet to have their teeth shortened.  I think if they have appropriate toys to chew on and actual chew toys - possibly they file them down themselves.

I love my dwarf hotot bunny, every time I come home from work she's up front paws on the top of the cage waiting for me to come pet her :) it didn't take her long either to learn her name either :) She's very hyper though, she doesn't like to be held either, shes more of a free goer :)

I got my dwarf hotot day before yesterday....it's still scared of me holding her or he. I don't know genre it is because its only like 2-3 weeks old....its hard to tell. I'm just wondering maybe what I could do to make her not be scared....I'm wondering if you guys can give me a little more advice. Please and thank you :)

    Rather than PICK him/her up, sit down on the floor with a towel in your lap. The towell provides a smoothe surface and just in case the bunny goes potty. So sit on the floor with the towel in your lap and bring the bunny toward you and let her be in your lap. A nice little treat would help also. The bunny is scared right now and will get used to you.

    Congratulations and have fun.  Get everything set up - including the litter - before you bring your little guy home.  Put his safe place and litter in a small room such as laundry room or bathroom or section off area in kitchen until you know it is litter trained

Can hotots stay outside in the winter?

    No - they don't do well in cooler temperatures. Now if you live in Southern Florida and it stays above 65 degrees you'd probably be OK as long as they have shelter but otherwise no. Most bunnies do not do well in colder temperatures.

I adopted a dwarf hotot last night and am already in adoration of the little lady. Though she came with the name of Duchess I will be changing it to something less bourgeois (perhaps Eva or Bette?). She is sitting in my lap right now being calm despite the fact my dog is sitting 2 feet away. I am thrilled to have added her to the herd. :)

    No they can live outside if the temperature is year round moderate but they don't handle cold or extreme heat.
