o.k. if you are going to get a netherland ddwarf rabbit here is some advive for you.
A lot of people think that netherland dwarfs are really agressive and mean but they real;y aren't viscious. They are so cute and adorable and so nice too.
Infact, I'm about to get one on wednesday and I know about everything that you should
know about a n. dwarf. I read this one message and this girl let her rabbit eat TWIZZLERS right out of the bag, and everybody should know that if you give your rabbit sugar it could either get super super sick or it could die. o.k. that was such horrible advice. Please don't think I'm stupid. I'm going into the 4th grade and I get a's and b's.

I disagree with the people that say they are aggressive. If you are having 'mixed thoughts' GO WITH THAT THEY ARE GENTLE TINY RABBITS! My friend has a netherland dwarf and she is breeding them and i will get a baby! But i asked her if she ever bit her and she said 'shes never even tried to.' It was only the second time i ever SAW the rabbit and i held it for the first time...she dident even swerm around or scratch!!!! These are the BEST rabbits in the WORLD!! They are VERY cute!! They come in MANY colors and only the red-eyed whites have red eyes!!! (bc personally i think red-eyes are scary and ugly) But i am getting one for myself and i am having NO DOUBTS about this breed!!

I recently adopted the cutest 6 mo. old gray & white Dwarf bunnie from a Pet Rescue facility. I absolutely love rabbits, we just had a bunnie die a week before we bought Smokey our newest memmber to our family! Dwarfs are the cutest bunnies ever! Ever since we adopted him, he has been the happiest bunny and always gives us kisses for recuing him! We love him so much! He is our 3rd bunnie, we love them!
They are a joy to have!!

I have a netherland dwarf doe and she can be aggressive a lot, so I would not suggest getting her for a kid. Netherland dwarfs, along with any other rabbit are very territorial. They do not like people putting their hands in their cage. If you want to get a rabbit for a child I HIGHLY suggest getting an american fuzzy lop. I had one and he was the best rabbit I could ever ask for. Unfortunatly he died about two months ago and the house just isn't the same without him.

I am currently looking into getting a Netherland Dwarf, but I am hearing mixed reviews. My bunny will be around little kids sometimes, but they are used to having to be gentle as many people in my family have recently gotten small puppies. I want a bunny, and I know it's a responsibility, but I'm not sure how much care it requires. I've also heard some disastrous stories about these bunnies' tempers. Some websites have said that they are much more aggressive and make terrible pets; while others boast about their lovable nature. I want a pet that I can play with and that can be around children at least sometimes. I wonder if anyone can help me decipher truth from reality.

I got a Dwarf Netherland on Easter from my boyfriend, and his name is Scooter. He is the most amazing animal I ever had! He does so many unique things that I've never seen an animal do before. His favorite thing to snack on, (but only on rare occasions) is twizzlers. He will rip the twizzler right out of the bag and eat it. Or this is another one that gets me, I will sit on the floor and he will run laps around me for a good 15 mins. It is such an amazing pet to have, he is such a good bunny and I would not trade it for the world!

We have 2 N. Dwarf rabbits - both male. Litter box training was a bit trying but it's done now and well worth the patience. I feed the bows ONLY OXBOW pellets and OXBOW grass / hay. Once they turn 6 months old, the hay will become 70% of their diet and the pellets will be cut way back. Vegetables will be introduced at 6 months and fruits there after. I love these rabbits the way some people love their dog. N.Dwarfs can be extremely playful and express themselves very well. We get kisses from the rabbits every day. One of my rabbits only weighed in at 0.6 lbs and the other at 1 lb. These are not the type of rabbits to have around very small children - unless the children are taught to be careful and GENTLE.

I have just recently gotten a rabbit (I don't no what breed but it is a normal one lol). Even though she gets loads of attention, we think she might need some company. Me and my sister were at a farm the other day and we were holding n.drawfs and we fell in love with them. Even though they scratch and nibble abit, they are so loveable and cute. and seem like the perfect pet!

I have a netherland dwarf whose name is sweet pea. I'm showing him in our county fair this week! He has been a showmanship champ 3 years in a row! Wish me luck!

I as well have a netherland dwarf who is about four months old. I am 15 years old and I have had at least one rabbit in my house ever since I was four and my american fuzzy lops (who just died a little over a month ago) breeder told us not to give a rabbit fruits and vegetables until it was 6 months old and I now do that with every rabbit I get. But fruits and veggies are safe for rabbits (just do not give them to much at one time it upsets their belly). If anybody else has any questions I would be happy to try and answer them!
