HI:) I have the most adorable Mini-Rex his name Roo, he hops like a kangaroo.
He is litter box trained after only 2 weeks. He loves to hop and spin in place when he is happy. I call it his "happy dance." It is funny to watch. He is curious but very cuddly and friendly. He is fascinated with a house that I made with a cardboard box adorning a few windows. He also loves to follow me hopping close behind as I go from room to room. Litter box training was easy just placed the box with some hay in the corner of the room and he uses it. No accidents....yet!!!
Lots of energy and a cuddly companion. Sharon

My bunny is a mini rex mixed with another breed, but were not quite sure. He is the most adorable thing ever. He's white with brown spots and he's so fat and loveable. I sometimes think that he thinks he's like a dog or something cause he acts like one in many ways and he doesn't like people who are scared of him. But no one except my little brother is scared of him, but they get along now. Anyway if your wanting to get a bunny or rabbit GET a Mini Rex...Too cute

Me and my sister have a Dwarf-Rex rabbit. She is two years old and she is as big as a six year old. She enjoys eating alfalfa treats and hay. She sleeps in a bunny condo that we built for her. She has usually a 1/4 of a bail of hay in there and a guinea pig home that she absolutely loves. She turns it over and puts hay in the bottom to sleep in it. Her name is Tootsie and she is the calmest rabbit that you will ever meet.

I have a mini rex rabbit,black and white with that lovable instinct to randomly lick your cheek when you're holding it by your face. Her name is Chibi, this bunny is indeed a female! I also have another mini rex rabbit who is brown with a bit of white named ReiRei,this bunny is male! And my last rabbit is very weird, it is a male and has stayed with me for 15 years now. Anyone wanna' elaborate on what's wrong with Noel... I'm pretty sure 15 years is old for a bunny. It wouldn't be as energetic as when it was 4 months old!

I have a mini rex rabbit now too. I had a tort mini rex that I got on nov. 15, but she died on Thanksgiving. The next day I went and got a another one. This one is all black and her name is Belle. She is so sweet and curious. She is great, she loves to play chase me. She has already litter trained herself. She is so much more active than my mini lop is. My daughter is putting her in the fair and rabbit shows next year. I love her so much and I love my mini lop also. well actually they're my daughter's and mine. The one that died didn't do too much, she would just lay in her cage, or if we took her out she would just go lay somewhere to be alone.

We have three bunnies. One mini rex (broken black), he is not the best of the bunnies but he is so cute and sweet when you are not trying to get him to do something he does not want to do,lol. My other bunnies are lops and they are more laid back and willing to go along with everything. I enjoy my bunnies and am happy they are litter trained. Bunnies make the best pets as long as you are willing to do house chores every day for them.

I had a mini rex (Cinnamon) years ago and unfortunately he passed away (from old age) and I miss him so much. He actually lived to be around 9 years old which is very old for them! He was a show rabbit but I never showed him, just kept him as a family pet. He had the best personality any rabbit could have...I felt he was more like a dog sometimes because he would lick you! He never bit anyone and was very gentle. He was very good with the litter box and loved to explore the house. I was young when I had him and believe it or not he would play hide n go seek! I would put him somewhere in the house and run and hide and a few minutes later here he came to find me! I used to make mazes for him and he would actually do them. He loved parsley so if you havent tried to give yours that I would try it! He layed on the couch like it was his own but sometimes I had to watch...I left my homework out and he started nibbling on it..you think the teacher would believe you that a rabbit ate your homework!? He loved to follow me around and always be with me. He didn't like baths though, or his nails clipped! But other than that, he was the best rabbit anyone could ask for. In the summer we sometimes had him outside with our other rabbits and the one night a german shepperd came by and tried to get in the cage..Cinnamon thumped his foot so hard that luckily my sister heard him from the other side of the house and ran out there to scare the dog away. Lets just say after that I never let him outside again! If you are looking for one that is good with kids I say go for a mini rex!! Their fur is SO soft you could pet them all day. It shocked me to read comments on here that their mini rexs were mean because I knew quite a few and none of them were ever like that! I would recommend to get one from an actual breeder so you know it's pure bred and then maybe you won't have the agressiveness that some people had with theirs. Hope this helps someone who is deciding to get one or not!

I have had this rabbit for 2 years. She likes to love on people and is very laid back. So I suggest if you're getting a rabbit, get a mini-rex.
