I just purchased a dwarf bunny, she is black and very soft to hold and it only took me 2 days to litter train her. I named her jasper and she knows her name.

    Mine took about that long to litter train. His name is Rusty, and he has been mine since he was born. I love him to bits and I don't know what I would do without him. Whenever I'm sad he gives my an encouraging lick on the nose. If anyone was thinking about getting a Netherland Dwarf, I definitely recommend it.

Hi my name is Vanessa and I am looking to purchase a Netherland Dwarf rabbit as a Christmas gift for my son. The only problem is that I can't seem to find anyone that is selling this kind of rabbit. I am located in the Huntsville, Alabama area and I am very serious about this purchase. Please someone contact me if you are looking to sell a rabbit or know someone that is looking to sell. Thank You.

I am getting a black Netherland dwarf tomorrow. I am very excited. I have had rabbits in the past but never one this small. I cannot wait to surprise my daughter!! However, I was considering just letting it wander around the house, is this a bad idea? I don't want it to get lost or something.

    As long as you start them out in areas that you can monitor to assure their safety and get use to its surroundings.

Hi I got a 1 year old female Netherland dwarf rabbit I love her to prices even though she ticks me off sometimes. I got her recently at an auction for $5.00. She was my first pet so I went home studied her breed and I've had her for a couple months. We don't have a vet but she's always playful. We have a pedigree but we lost it and we've had her for a couple months. She's playful and happy. She loves to chew up the rug but we trained her not to. She's had babies before so she can still have babies and I think she's spayed because she never attacks but lately she's really agressive and scratched me when I approach her and she's growling at me now! Since we got her recently all we have for her to live in is a dog kennel which we clean every Sunday but she's still agressive and I don't know what's wrong?

    Actually she doesn't look like a netherland as her face is more elongated. I think she a netherland mix but her pedigree says purebred so I'm not sure

Hello! I have a siamese sable netherland dwarf named Benjerman. He will be shown in the fair and I plan to breed him. He is a very good rabbit.

    The gestation (pregnancy) period of most rabbits is around 31 days, but because Netherland Dwarf rabbits are so small they will likely give birth sooner. There is an excellent free e-mail mini course on breeding and raising rabbits at It goes into detail (very easy to read) on how to reduce mortality rates and improve the health and productivity of all rabbits using recently published research.

My son got a netherland dwarf our fair in September. He has basically just started working with it. He likes it but I don't think he thought it would be this much work. We did have the rabbit outside in a hutch but the week it got sooo hot my dad let my son bring it in and put it in a cat carrier. so as of right now that is where it lives. I have my son get it out and try to interact with it in the kitchen because the rest of the house is carpet and we don't want rabbit turds in the carpet.

    Yes, they can be work but if you can arrange an appropriate set up - quite easy to have. Try the idea of a somethng similar to a dog house (acutally a hutch he can go in and out of) in a fenced (or enclosed in harea with toys, litter, shelf etc. He can't live in a kennel.
