A "mischievous" giant rabbit the size of a dog is looking for a new home.

Seven-month-old Atlas is currently being cared for by staff at the Scottish SPCA centre in Cardonald, Glasgow, after his owner could no longer look after him.

The charity is appealing for potential new owners for the continental giant rabbit to get in touch.

Centre manager Anna O'Donnell said: "Atlas is already about the size of a westie and is still young with some growing to do.

"He is a very friendly rabbit who loves attention and getting cuddles. Atlas is also an inquisitive boy who makes everyone laugh with his mischievous character.

"We are looking for a specific home for Atlas due to his breed and size. A standard rabbit hutch won't do so his new owner will need plenty of space for him.

"Atlas needs an owner with the knowledge to properly care for him, so ideally someone who has kept a continental giant before."
