    These are pretty good sized rabbits,  and reaching up to about 8 1/2 pounds is normal.

I am looking for a Himalayan rabbit to add to our family and finding it very difficult to locate a breeder. My daughter and I had one we loved very much but he unexpectedly and suddenly passed away after a surgery last year. If anyone knows a breeder in the Eastern, PA (Reading, Harrisburg, Allentown and thereabouts) or even within 2- 2 1/2 hours from the area please let me know! My email is Cristalsmama@gmail.com, thank you.

I have a blue and white dutch bunny. He is the first pet I have had as an adult and my first bunny. He has a great disposition, is very playful, and loves to be petted. He is easy to care for and was easy to litterbox train. He pretty much trained himself. They are very smart animals. He loves to play. He runs all over the room and binkys high! He has a ball that he likes to roll around and he likes to hide in his little huts made out of cardboard boxes. He loves treats such as raisins, apples, carrots, broccoli, oranges, cilantro, mint, and parsley. He seems particularly fond of the mint and will pull it right out of your hand and gulp it down! : ) He does require alot of attention as they do get lonely but he is so worth it! He also gives bunny kisses which is a high honor. They will only groom some one they truly trust and love. He also knows that i always kiss his nose and has started to put his nose out for kisses! So cute. Bunnies are a great pet if you have the time for them but they also require alot of research. They are a fragile animal and need the proper care. But if you are considering one for a pet, a dutch is great to start out with. But be prepared. They can live up to around 10-15 years if properly cared for.

My bunny Oreo is very very soft and cuddly! Oreo is 3 years old and very nice. Oreo likes to eat bunny food, carrots, grass, dandelions, lettuce and apples. She does not bite unless she is very hungry and needs food. I like to play with Oreo outside in the summer. In the winter Oreo runs around in the basement and in the summer she likes to be in her cage under the pine tree.

    Oreo sounds like an awesome friend, and I llike her name too. Does she look like an oreo cookie? I think being under the pine tree in the summer must be very nice for her, a cool shaded spot.

    Hey can I change Oreo's name like Hershys or somthimg?

Hi I had a lop ear bunny name dora-chan. She was eating fine everyday even on the day she died. She died suddenly, she was rolling and kicking and her eyes were rolling too, and her legs went stiff. I took her to the vet and they say it was an ear problem and it went to her brain . The vet gave us some med, we took the rabbit home and she died 15 min later. We had the rabbit for 5 years. We don't understand what might have happened because she was so healthy and happy. In the 5 years we had her she ever got sick. Do you have any ideas what might have happened.

    So sorry to hear about your bunny. Sounds like she was well cared for and loved, but sometimes illnesses happen, even in the best of situations. My deepest regrets for your loss, and warm regards.

    get on to the ARBA web sight (arba.com i think) and search for a local show in your area or you can even search for breeders in your area on there. go to show or contact a breeder. if you are just looking for a pet a mismarked one always shows up every now and then in a litter. these animals are likely to be healthier and actually the breed you are paying for than a pet store. alot of the time pet store rabbits are not what they say they are and being in the pet store is very stressful for them making them more likly to get sick. not sure where you are from but i am close to dayton ohio. i happen to have two for sale and one of them even knows how to use a litter boxbut only while she is in the cage. i have dogs so she is only out supervised so no real need for me to try to train her outside of her cage to use one lol. hope this helps

Help please. I had an adorable broken black lop (family member)who died a month ago. Can't get any answers why. He had mushy poop, so i gave him a bath (have many times). He went flat. would not raise his head. Then called the vet. She didn't know (@!* what?) We took him in kitchen and he ate a carrot and water through dropper. Have it on video. He seemed fine. Then 7hrs later had him in towel all night (afraid to let him down) he shook and died in my arms. I was shocked. Didn't take him to ER cause I thought he was fine after eating. Please HELP, so confused. Lots of crying and lots of guilt. 8+ yrs old.So depressed, i can't stop thinking about him...

    I am really sorry to hear about your loss ): my bunny Moo died almost like this but he was only three. All I can say, what I think happened is maybe old age ... rabbits hide their illnesses because in the wild if a predator knows they are sick they will eat them. And if your bunny was outside fliess could have come and and if your bunny had a dirty bottom flies can lay eggs on them and once they hatch they can eat your bunnies insides out (known as a fly strike).  I know it sounds horrible but it can happen.... I'm again very sorry for you ):
  • Annie - 2013-04-05
    I'm sorry to hear that. But first you should know that it's not wise to give lop a bath, because they're so vulnerable and easy to catch cold. And then for bunnies, they can't eat carrots or vegetables cause it's difficult for them to digest and maybe will get enteritis. If you want your lop live longer, you should feed him on alfalfa and as much water as you can. (cold boiled water) As you mentioned that he had mushy poop, there are a lot of possibilities. You'd better take him to the hospital. Finally wish him to live better in a lop planet.

    Thank you Mckenzie and Annie for your response and sympathy. Our bunnies are so much a part of our families. I am still so depressed about Bunnybuns since it's spring. We usually let him run around the yard and dig and play with about 7 balls. Holland lops seem to have alot in common. everyone loves them soooo much. I can't find another yet. The black and white are hard to find. I know what i will and wont do after Bunnybuns. We were all so attached to that little guy. I need to find another one soon or i will go nuts...thanks again for your kind words.

I ve just brought two holland lops. Maisie is about a week older than my other rabbit Dash. Named Dash for a reason! They are the cutest rabbits I ve seen. I took Maisie for a walk down the street and one lady thought it was a dog.
