I just got a female hotot today! She is a sweet little girl. I think everyone should own one once in their lifetime.

Our family inherited an Engilsh Spot rabbit a few months ago. I built a pen for her outside up off the ground about for feet. I built walls on hinges so they can fold down and a solid roof. My question is, should I put in a heat lamp for her because tempature can go down to high 20's to low 30's. Is there anyone out there that can answer my question. I've looked on a lot of websites and no answer yet. Thanks.

    Yes, put a heat lamp in. That is cold. You can place the lamp so it doesn't hit the entire area but one end of it so your bunny can move around to a place where the heat from the lamp is comfortable for them.

    I would put a heat lamp in, just in case. My rabbit doesn't seem to be affected by the cold and happily runs about in 20-30 degrees celsius. I let my rabbit spend his evenings inside the house where it's warm. He changes completely when he's inside. He changes from the energetic, curious rabbit to the relaxed, sleepy, affectionate rabbit. It's adorable!

    Same here, they're so loving and nice sounding, I want one.

    Well, yes they are. I have a 2 year old English Spot named Violet, and she is adorable. :) She loves to dig a hole right underneath our Butterfly bush in our backyard, and also enjoys snow. Some of them aren't very playful or like to jump. They also LOVE to destroy newspaper and cardboard. It would be best to get your bunny a wicker house, a LOT of chew toys, and put a blanket in it. Also, they are extremely fast runners. She is over-weight though, so if you know what I could do about that, please comment on this. Thanks. :)

    Just gradually start feeding less and less pellets, until your bun is kept on a hay based diet. Remember, this must be very gradual. If your bun starts to lose weight, that's great! If you want, you can slowly introduce the pellets again once she's normal weight again, but you can also just keep her on hay. Hope it helped!
  • Becca - 2012-05-09
    Oh I almost forgot, if you get your rabbit back on pellets, make sure you are feeding less than before, because this is probably why your bun became overweight in the first place. Also make sure the pellets you are feeding her are low in carbon (about 5%) and high in fiber (about 15%-20%)
  • :) - 2014-03-26
    Also, it's easier to stop an English Spot from getting overweight than many other breeds of rabbits the same size. English Spots also love jumping around and running. They are slender in body shape and beautiful. Uh oh. I'm sounding like my english teacher. Anyway, English Spots are the best and I have one myself. I don't know what I would do without him.

I got my English Spot rabbit about 4 months ago and I adore him. We found him in a park and he was already litter trained. His markings are absolutely beautiful and I have no doubt he is a show worthy rabbit but I prefer to have him just as a pet. He's sweet, affectionate, adorable, playful, beautiful, cheeky, loyal and a cunning escape artist. English Spot rabbits make great companions and I recommend getting one. They can be a bit feisty for little kids but 9 years and above would be a good age for kids. English Spots need lots of attention and you don't need to bathe them much because they like to clean themselves. English Spots are the best. I'll love you forever Knuffle Bunny. (my mum named my rabbit before I knew we had him)

I have an English Spot rabbit because we found him in a park nibbling at some grass. He had owners before us but they didn't want him (I don't know how it's possible not to want my bunny!) and they had him litter trained for us. I have learned lots from my rabbit and I have studied English Spots so ask me any questions you may have about them and their behaviours, what they eat, etc. Reply with any questions you may have or stories about your rabbit or small habits your rabbit might have (I like learning new things so I can take care of my rabbit better). Thanks everyone.

I just purchased a dwarf bunny, she is black and very soft to hold and it only took me 2 days to litter train her. I named her jasper and she knows her name.

    Mine took about that long to litter train. His name is Rusty, and he has been mine since he was born. I love him to bits and I don't know what I would do without him. Whenever I'm sad he gives my an encouraging lick on the nose. If anyone was thinking about getting a Netherland Dwarf, I definitely recommend it.

I have a black male Havana bunny his name is Magnum. He is so soft and very friendly and loveable. He shares his triple decker condo with his freind Maggie May. I'm not sure what breed she is but it was love at first sight with those two. Yes I got them both fixed. I wanted to let Maggie May have a litter of bunnies. But my boyfreind said no. They are both very spoiled bunnies. This is the first time I have had two at the same time. Maggie May kinda looks like a chinchilla. Does any one know what breed she might be? They're both soft and very playful and loving. Can't imagine life without them.

    There are so many mixes, that the only way to really find out is to trace her background, if you can.

We bought our lionhead in July 2009. We named her Chewey because she looked like Chewbacca. She died two weeks ago. She had a heart disorder and problems breathing. She was so much fun. She had a GREAT personality. The whole family enjoyed her and we miss her dearly.
