A Scottish animal shelter is searching for a home for an adorable rabbit… that will grow to be the size of a dog.

The seven-month-old continental rabbit named “Atlas,” was dropped off at the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Cardonald, Glasglow, because the owner could no longer take care of it. The rabbit is already the size of a small dog and may grow to be as long as 1.2 meters (that’s almost 4 feet) and as heavy as 20 kilograms (44 pounds).
Continental giants (also known as German giants) were originally bred for meat in Europe. They usually live between four and five years.
Atlas is characterized as inquisitive, funny and mischievous.
“He is a very friendly rabbit who loves attention and getting cuddles,” says SPCA Manager Anna O’Donnell on the organization’s website.
THE SPCA is looking someone with the space and possibly experience with the breed. Anybody interested in Atlas is asked to contact the SPCA.
