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.

We just recently added our minirex, Shadow, to the family and its been wonderful. He is the cutest thing and he has the softest fur. He's playful and he gets pretty easily amused, like he loves playing with this plastic cup. I don't know why but it's awfully cute. He also loves being pet and sitting on my lap:). He is also very intelligent, we've already potty trained! Everybody loves him:). I'm 13 and my brother is 11. He adores me, he thinks I'm his mommy and he licks me. But my bros a bit roughfer when he pets him, but he still enjoys his company. HE MAKES THE MOST PERFECT ADDITION TO THE FAMILY!

I too have a scary mini rex. He has bitten my son twice, is very jumpy in our arms and charges us when we reach into his cage. I try to hold him and tame him. I'm just not sure if he's fixable.

I brought my new addition to the family, the mini-rex rabbit, home about two weeks ago and I love him. At first he was always around me and wanted to lay on chest, now within a few days he acts like he's petrified of me and won't let me pick him up. He's now trying to escape from his pen EVERY minute. I let him out 75% of the time and he has free roam over the house and still I don't know what else I can do to please him. If ANYONE has any suggestions please let me know. Thank you

I just got my mini rex, Blue, today. He is gentle, but super active. He is so sweet. I got him for Youth Fair because my doe died Saturday. So far he is amazing.

Hi!
I used to have two mini rex bunnies, I never thought I'd get them. After two happy years, they disappeared from their cage. We never saw either again. To this very day, I miss them with my heart and hope we will find them.

I purchased my Mini Rex, Brex, a few months ago when he was about 5-6 weeks old. Never having owned a rabbit before I researched breeds before I made my decision (I wanted one that had a good temperament, as I have a four year-old and that would not grow to be too large).
We could not be more happy with Brex. He is completely black and has the softest fur ever, loves to have his belly rubbed, likes the 'kisses' our dog gives him and in general is just perfect.
Mini Rex rabbits are definitely a great breed for families with younger children or with well-behaved pets as they are not scared too easy (especially if you introduce the 'family' early on) and are simply a great addition to any loving home!
