I think I have a Holland Lop rabbit because he looks exactly like the picture on this website. But our rabbit is not a miniture. He weighs about 12 pounds. Could he be a larger version of the Holland Lop rabbit?

    There are many different breeds of Lops but the Holland Lop is tiny and goes about 3 - 4 pounds.  Yours weighing in a 12 pounds is a little larger.  Many of the Lops do look alike and basically it is size, length of the ear, body etc that makes for diferent breeds.  If you go to www.bing.com and enter 'lop rabbit images' you will see a whole bunch of different lop breeds and possibly be able to pick yours out.  Remember, the various breeds come in different colors or patterns.

    We have a 9mo lop rabbit name Sadie, we think she is a Holland Lop. She weighs 9lbs. She looks like the pictures as well.

    Mini Lops do look like Holland Lops. They are both really sweet. The big difference is that Hollands have a dwarf gene so they are the smallest breed of lops. Next is the Mini Lop. Many people say that Mini Lops are the smallest, excluding the Hollands because they are a dwarf breed. I recently got a call to take a Holland and the picture looked like he could be, but when I got him, he weighed about 7 or 8 pounds so I knew just by his size that he is a Mini Lop. Sweet boy just like my Hollands, but he is definitely not a dwarf.

@dawn ... I myself breed rabbits and I see you have encountered a choice between mini rex and mini lop. The mini lops that I have and sweeter and more intelligent than the mini rex as tho the mini rex are more playful and adapt to a person very quickly. I hope you come to a conclusion.

My husband, Troy brought our baby girl home on 02-14-11. It was a wonderful surprise to come home from work and see the work Troy put into setting up her cage and everything. She wasn't due to come home til about the first week in March. But I think Troy made me think that just to surprise me. Her name is DottieMae.

    Some bunnies are just more curious, lively, agressive, laid back more so than others.  If you threw a ball for a pup - some will chase it and some won't.  Sounds like if you throw a ball for your little Havana - she will chase it.  She is curious and attentive and wants to know what eveything is.  So something new and she runs up to it and tries to determine - what it is and can she eat it.  I don't know why you would want to stop it. -  Just me.  I would think you would want to capitalize on it.  I would take her into a small room - like the bathroom with a bunch of objects hiden behind your back and put them down or throw them one at a time.  Sit down on the floor with your Havana and have some fun.  It will get some of the excess energy out of the Havana.  Then have a little stuffed animal (little) that you can use with your hand to play with the Havana and then use your hand to play with the Havana.  She will be calmer, she will get used to your hand, you will get used to her antics and eventually you will be able to hold and pet her.

Hi I got a 1 year old female Netherland dwarf rabbit I love her to prices even though she ticks me off sometimes. I got her recently at an auction for $5.00. She was my first pet so I went home studied her breed and I've had her for a couple months. We don't have a vet but she's always playful. We have a pedigree but we lost it and we've had her for a couple months. She's playful and happy. She loves to chew up the rug but we trained her not to. She's had babies before so she can still have babies and I think she's spayed because she never attacks but lately she's really agressive and scratched me when I approach her and she's growling at me now! Since we got her recently all we have for her to live in is a dog kennel which we clean every Sunday but she's still agressive and I don't know what's wrong?

    Actually she doesn't look like a netherland as her face is more elongated. I think she a netherland mix but her pedigree says purebred so I'm not sure

i got a polish dwarf too. ive been wanting one for 7 years now my parents have finnally given in! Shes almost a year old now and me and her have formed a tight bond. Her name is thumper, she is the hyperest thing you could ever ask for. I even knew that in the pet store, because I saw her hopping around i did not want her to go into the wrong hands, (like the 2 year old banging on the glass.Because my bunnie is sooo hyper we have to take her out about at least three times a day! And we also have to watch her like 24 7 cause shes soo smart she knows everythin.....like how to get under the couch when we block it....to open doors and close them...how to open a candy wrapper...how to get out of her leash...like seriosly!!Anyway each bunnies got its own personality and you gotta deal with it all differently...like my friends bunnie is just sooo lazy you open the cage door and gos and eats!Well you can also teach you bunie things like cause my bunnie liked to chew on things we had to teach her commands like to stop chewing on somthing which was NO NO NO THUMPER!!!and tocome... come thumper!! so take it from me if you want your bunnie to like it you GOTTA spend some time with it and let it get to know ya

Hi My name is Marie and I have a Holland Lop Bunny about 3 months old and my daughter is sick can the bunny get sick from us. Because we love to hold her and she kisses us and we kiss her. Also my bunny eats its own poop is that normal. I am taking the Bunny to the vet on Friday to get her claws cut and get checked and he owns a Holland Lop Bunny so I have alot of questions to ask of him. Thank You

    Most diseases are species specific and don't cross from a human to a turtle or turtle to bird etc. There are a few exceptions such as rabies but rare. So I doubt your daughter can catch anything from your lop. Yes, it is normal for a bunny to eat its poop - provides some sort of additional nutrition. Your vet should be able to answer all your questions and alleviate concern. Just enjoy.

    Thank You Charlie again for helping us out I take her to the vet on Friday. I wrote all our questions down so I hope this will help us. :)
