Well, I really would like to get a Holland Lop. But a young one. The only problem is I cannot find any breeders. I live in Iowa. Does anyone know of any breeders near Des Moines?

    Try calling any rabbit breeder. There should be some listed in the newspaper - or even an animal shelter. You can ask if they know of a Holland Lop breeder near your area.

    If you haven't found one yet, try Under member resources there's a find a breeder section. Don't know if there's any in your area, but these are all reputable breeders.

    Well I know one in Illinois but that probably won't help much. Sorry. I want one too but I'm not sure if she has any

    Just do the best you can think of to get it set up correctly. I like a space like the corner of a kitchen or laundry room if it leads to the rest of the home. Hutch with stairs or landing that comes out and a litter in the hutch and at the bottom of the hutch. I bet you a dollar you will get as much enjoyment from that bunny as she does.

I owned a chinchilla mini-rex for a year and it was my favorite rabbit I have ever owned. I am thinking about getting another mini-rex to show for 4-H!

I have a cinnamon breed, she's 8 years old and my best friend. If taken good care of, they can live forever. Just be sure to know what foods to feed them, all bunnies should have a fresh salad daily. I usually give her romaine lettuce (NEVER iceburg), carrots, cilantro, parsley, celery leaves, and apples (her favorite.) Be good to them, they'll be good to you. They need space to run around and lots and lots of love. She's potty trained too :)

Hi, I used to have two lop eared rabbits, but they died, so i'm *hopefully* getting another once soon! I always kept my old ones in a hutch in the garage, with a big run outside that the bunnies could play in! But I'd really love to have them in the house! What I'd like to ask is, do they damage the furniture and poop all over the floor? Thanks! =]

    Hi faye , you can litter train rabbits very easily using a tray with some sawdust in it, my rabbits use it as a loo even if you move it around, they might try to nibble stuff though but if you just keep shooing them away when they nibble stuff with a command like a loud clap or saying no firmly they should get the idea make sure you rabbit proof all the wire so they cant electrocute themselves if you chew on a live wire. Good luck with your new rabbit hopefully :)

    Not really the most damage they could do is like pee or scratch but they don't really pee a lot and we got a lop 2 days ago and it pooped 1 time the poop doesn't stick its a ball and easy to pick up.
  • Rabbit lover - 2010-07-20
    My neighbor used to have one and it chewed down the couch legs. You can train them to go "potty" in a litterbox. That's all I know of.
  • jacqui - 2010-09-08
    Rabbits don't usually use the bathroom outside of the cage especially if potty trained... rabbits are really fun! I also had a rabbit... now I have a new one!
  • Rosie - 2010-10-03
    We "adopted" a mini lop when she was about 6 months old. She is the light of our lives. We started her out in our mudroom and eventually let her rule the house. She is wonderful. We have had her for 2 years now. She doesn't damage the furniture and you can train them to leave the wires alone by shouting "no". They do understand, they are very smart animals and make fabulous pets. She is litter box trained (which is very easy to do), although sometimes she does leave a little present for us accidentally (small, round, hard poop balls) but it's very easy to clean up and is not messy! My big, tough husband gets on the ground with her and gives her kisses and she kisses back. Chanel is wonderful....we call her Nellie. Part of the family and she is so loving!
  • Sarah - 2010-12-31
    No they don't poop all over the floor IF you get them litter box trained. As long as you give the rabbits something to chew on, they won't damage the furniture. Good luck!

My 3 year old dutch rabbit Eddie just died! It was really sad, he was probably the nicest rabbit ever not to mention brave. He would love to be held and pet and he was great with kids. He would jump into my arms when I opened his cage and I would sometimes hand feed him cheetos. Just last year when I let him run in his pen in our back yard when I was gone a hawk came down and snatched him up. He was struggling and eventually fell, he had a giant gash on his neck and an ulcer on his eye everyone thought he wouldn't make it, even the doctors, but my Eddie made it! He died 7-21-11 from my plott hound Sophie who chased him in 100 degrees and he eventually had a heart attack :( I miss him! I also have another dutch Bonnie (black and white and 2 years old) Willow (tan and white less than a year) and willow has 4 babies Pancake, Squirt, Sugar, and Pippi (pip).
A white lionhead named Maisy who has 3 babies which are a dutch and lionhead mix named Pepe, Romeo, and Humpfrey (is that how you spell it?).

    You have a houseful.
  • Imogen - 2011-09-03
    I'm very sorry to say your rabbit just died. Mine died in June and he was a really soft white rabbit called Peter. I'd had him since I was 6. I've had him a few years, more than half my life and he got cancer and we had to put him to sleep because he was in pain and suffering. We had some great times together-rabbits make great pets. Eddie sounds so nice-oh my gosh how awful! I miss my rabbit loads too, but I'm glad you have some more. Rabbits are amazing pets and I highly recommend them to everyone :)

Do lion heads live in Melbourne? And are they allowed to live in Melbourne? If they do, please post a "Link" with Lionhead bunnies for sale. Since my daughter's bunny died, She wants a "lion head" bunny. I can't find any results for lion head bunnies in Melbourne..

How long do STO's live? A couple of days ago, I noticed my STO wasn't eating and now she seems to be wobbly if she tries to walk. I have made a vet appointment but can't get in until late tomorrow morning. Any suggestions? Thank you!

    Their life expectancy is about 5 years.  Keep her warm.  Put a heating pad on low wrapped in a towel under the cage.  You can place drops of pedialyte water or gator aid on her tongue to try and keep her from dehydrating.
  • Janice - 2012-09-07
    Thank you. She's already at the vet now and they gave her fluids and will continue to do so to see if she will eat. They did mention Pedialyte if I took her home but I left her there. I did see on this website that they live 4-8 years. We'll see how she does--will let you know :)
