My four month old Chihuahua Pomeranian mix likes to eat wild rabbit droppings

Rabbit droppings are like chocolate to dogs. The feces are likely desirable because they are rich in nutrients. There isn't much that can be done to stop it. It is a very common issue, however, you should monitor your dogs health, the feces may contain bacteria.

Some dogs eat things we might find strange because they crave the nutrients in them. Dogs also eat dirt and grass. Feces is unsanitary, so stop your dog next time.

Your puppy may like the flavor of the droppings (unfortunately, some do), or there may be some vitamin that he/she is lacking from their diet. Try to find a dogfood, if you haven't already found one, that has all the necessary vitamins and minerals your dog needs.

Some dogs like to eat almost anything they can get to. Just because it likes to eat it doesnt mean it is healthy for it. Your puppy doesnt know any better and because it doesnt it is eating it. You need to make sure that it cannot get access to it anymore.

Your Chihuahua Pomeranian mix probably is lacking nutrients so try switching to different foods until habit changes. Also, dogs are attracted to the nutrients and ingredients within the feces.
