I bet that the majority of pet owners will agree that animals make our lives…well, easier. No matter what kind of little or big creature you have there, they are always there to brighten up your day. And in today’s article, we want to introduce you to a REALLY big cutie – Guus the giant Flemish rabbit.

When you see Guus for the first time, you immediately notice that he is not a usual rabbit. According to his human Danielle, this adorable fluff ball from Amsterdam acts more like a dog than a bunny. Scroll down to learn more!

His human, Danielle, calls him “bulldog-bunny”

According to Danielle, it’s very easy to take care of Guus. “Well, he was potty trained in about 2-3 weeks. Also, his toilet needs to be cleaned twice a week. We brush him and play with him. But for the rest, it’s just cuddling and enjoying his company.”

Danielle told us a bit more about what it’s like to have Guus around: “In the morning when I open the door of the living room, he sprints to the back door to go outside. He jumps around and is so happy. After that, he comes back inside for some cuddles on the couch and some snacks. Also during the day, he loves to jump next to you on the couch and seeks attention. A good head rub or cuddle is something he really likes.”

“When all the bunnies go left, he goes right straight away”

“Everyone who sees him for the first time is amazed of his size and how friendly he is. It’s easy for kids, adults but also dogs and cats to be around him. He has such a good personality.”

Danielle got Guus from her boyfriend as a birthday present around 2 years ago

Danielle shared with Bored Panda that she is obsessed with any kind of animal. “When I was young I grew up with dogs. So automatically I asked for a puppy. Since we live in Amsterdam and have a dynamic life, a dog didn’t fit for now. My boyfriend suggested a house bunny. Besides, I thought that bunnies would not be affectionate or cuddly at all, but we still wanted to give it a try. And so Guus came into our lives.”

Right now, Guus is 2.5 years old.

While they kept him in a cage at first, right now the rabbit has the whole house for him to play or chill wherever he wants
