Hi, I had a black and white dutch and he was the most friendly rabbit that I have ever met. He was very social and loved people and our dog very much. If you ever want a pet rabbit, definitely choose a dutch rabbit, a male if you can. They are much more friendly than the females. Mine lived to be 10 years old. They make fantastic pets!!

    I would wait until she is at least 6 months old before breeding her. Usually they mature between 5 and 9 months old.

Dutch Rabbits are great they are very nice and never have bitten me, but they do like to chew on your clothing but thats alright. its very funny and it doesnt hurt. if you get one it will love you very much if you spend a lot of time with it but if you get two together they will run away from you and not like you as much as they like each other. if you dont have time for it dont get one because there is nothing sadder than a bored and lonley rabbit so get two if you dont have time for it as much as you should. but they are still great for every one you just have to be gentle with them and they will love you so much but it takes some time, maybe like 1 month and they will be so much fun if you know how to take good care of them and spend a lot of time with them !!

    I have a b/w 1 month old Dutch buck; Hoppers. When my Netherland Dwarf of 8 years died I was inconsolable as I couldn't find another chinchilla coat Netherland Dwarf to replace him. I did find a sweet baby black & white Dutch whom I adore. After cleaning Bun Bun's 2 story hutch - he loves all the living space available. I have fastened a 10' x 10' dog pen around the front door so he can safely run, jump and dig. I feed him local dandelion weeds, raw carrots w/tops in addition to pellet food. Hoppers is a wonderful delightful pet.

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.

hiya there. I have a light brown dutch rabbit ans she is so cute. She always licks me and my family and she licks my dads socks. She is so so so sweet. Her name is lady short for marmelade. She runs around my garden and when i come in from school she runs up to sniff me. Also, when my dad is in the garden gardening, Lady follows him around and once my dad was looking at what he had to do next and lady was sitting next to him looking as well and it was so so so so so cute.
She has a black stripe going across her back, shes very different from the other dutch rabbits. She loves everyone!

We had a Dutch rabbit for over twelve years. His name was Snoopy and he was very friendly and sociable and loved to play. We used to take him outside and he loved the outdoors and the exercise. Never leave a bunny in their cage all the time because they need exercise and they need lots of love. He has been gone a year and a half and I still really miss him. He was the best pet we ever owned.
