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

    How old is your rabbit? Do you have any Dutch rabbits?

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.

    I just lost my little bunny today. I'm only 15 and Chloe was my first bunny. She was white, tiny and loved to be held. I had her for a short time. But I love her :(

    From what I have been told, there are not a lot of breeders in Austalia.  The country became overrun with rabbits and eating crops so they had to control the polulation.  Look for any bunny about th ame size.

    damn.. I really wanted one of the lion heads because they look so cute :( I guess ill have to settle for another mini lop

    After some research I'm sorry to say that the lionhead rabbit breed is not in Australia. I hope this is helpful. :(

    I recently had an accidental mating between our new mini rex which was supposed to be male but I didnt double check and my lionhead buck Mufassa.. If you are still looking for a bunny they will be available in 10 weeks. I live in Vero Beach Florida and go to Melbourne frequently.

    I breed lionlops because lionhead holland lop hybrids have become pretty popular now. I also know other breeders who do the same. I'm afraid I'm not in your area, and this really doesn't answer your question but all I can say is keep looking around cause lionlops are becomming quite popular
  • Charlie Roche - 2012-08-01
    Go to and enter holland Lops sale DC or Maryland and up comes a list of web sites or locations of various breeders.  Good luck.
Michelle Storts - 2012-07-31
I bred my mini rex doe with my holland lop buck. Was wondering if theres a nickname to call these hybrids. Just like holland lop lionhead hybrids are called lionhead lops or lionlops. Is there a name for mini rex and holland lop cross bunnies?

    People have crossed the mini rex with the hollarnd lop but I could not find a 'NAME' for the cross.   The ones advertised just say 'Mini Rex and Holland Lop cross'.  Maybe you can come up with a name - there are others out there.  Go to and enter 'mini rex + holland lop'

I got my Lionhead from my boyfriend for our 4 yr. anniversary! I have never had an animal in my life (always wanted one but parents didn't allow)! I'm not sure what kind of breed he is but he is like a child to me. I named him Bentley! I love him to pieces! He is the sweetest thing ever and he is SO much fun to watch!

    Hi, I have a lionhead rabbit and I have had it for 4 years now and it is the cutest little rabbit you have ever seen. I love my rabbit to death and she knows me when I come in the room to let her out, she even comes when I call her. Her name is Smokey because she is a smokey color. She is very playful and enjoys doing her crazy hops around the room. I also have a lop ear rabbit and her name is Pepper because she is white with black spots. I've had her for 8 years and she sometimes get jealous if I come in the room and start talking to Smokey, she will start running up and down her cage stomping her feet until I go to her and talk with her and then will she calm down, but I love them both.

I have a blue and white lionhead rabbit called Smokey. He likes sitting on my knee to be stroked, but he has to have his teeth cut because they grow too long. He lives with a guinea pig called George.

    They sound cute though
  • kristen - 2011-12-12
    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your lionhead bunny. I personally have 4 bunnies myself, and they make such wonderful pets. Your bunny was likely traumatized by the transport from the pet store/breeder to your home, causing the seizure (and yes, you did spell anesthesia right!). Any reputable vet will only use isoflorine to anesthetize a rabbit. Their systems are very sensitive, and I am very careful not to use any chemicals near them. Bunny staples are Timothy Hay (or Alfalfa Hay, for younger bunnies) in unlimited quantities. Also Timothy Hay-based pellets. Give them carrots, cilantro, parsley, apples (NO SEEDS!), broccoli, cauliflower, and you will have thriving bunnies. Good luck to you!!!

    Please have your female rabbit spayed. It prevents uterine cancer by 80%. I have 3 females and all are spayed. Please do your research and get this done. We don't need any more pets that need homes.
  • LUVURBUNS - 2011-12-24

    That is totally wrong. You do not get your rabbit altered just by a dog/cat vet. Altering a rabbit is VERY dangerous when the vet is not experienced. Please....look around and think about your answer before you post it.
  • Jackie - 2012-09-24
    Don't feed broccoli or cauliflower to your bunny! It causes horrible gas and bloating and can cause serious pain to them!
