We have an all black male netherland dwarf. He is the cutest thing ever. We got him because my son is allergic to cats and dogs but is fine with rabbits. We keep him in the house and he is very spoiled. We call him Bunny. The kids couldn't decide on a name and while I was training him to not go in certain places, I would say "no Bunny" and he got used to Bunny. Now he comes when I call Bunny. He is a very fun pet. He stays in a cage when we are gone and when we get home we let him out to run where ever. He is litter box trained. We love him to pieces. He gives us bunny kisses all the time. We got him a doggie bed and a ball made out of hay. He loves to play with the ball. You put it in his bed and he will grab it with his teeth and throw it out of his bed. Than you put it back in, he throws it back out. Great pet to have.

Hi, my name is Bethany. I love my 6 month old netherland dwarf, Tilly, she is so cute. My only concern is that she seems to be coming in to season and she seems to want to have sex with every thing she sees. Sadly we cannot find a male rabbit to mate with her.

Hey, it's me again. I just got my netherland dwarf rabbit about a week and a half ago and she has been absolutely awesome! Her name is holly and her color is tan and black. She is the cutest thing ever! Shes loves to play in my closet and jump, and all around my room. We just got her a bigger cage yesterday and put a shelf in it for her and she loves it. She mostly sleeps on there (she is laying on it right now). But all I got to say is, if you are looking to get a rabbit get a netherland dwarf rabbit (maybe not if your getting it for a kid because netherland dwarfs squirm around and scratch alot).

Moses' Friend - 2008-05-06
I have had many rabbits in the past. When I was 6, we had about 3 or 4 on them. Later though, we gave them to a Girl Scout troup because we wanted a dog instead. After a few years we again wanted a rabbit and we got Mr. Tumnus, a lop/other-breed-I-don't-remember. Moses (the dog) loved his playmate. A year or so later Tumnus died of a brain aneurysm. Moses was very upset when he lost his best friend. So a few months later we got his brother Benny. Not even a year passed when he too died because a raccoon attacked him while we were gone on a day skiing trip. At the time we didn't have a fence so poor Moses was tied up and couldn't do anything. Now, it's been over five years and again I want a rabbit. This time though I want to get a Netherlands Dwarf rabbit, so he or she can stay in the house. Not forever no, I will let them out in the daytime to eat grass and whatnot, but at night and when we're on trips. I also like the fact that they are really small and fuzzy. I just love them! Wish me luck and I hope I do better this time!
P.S. My sister and I were thinking about getting a girl and naming her Fraulein Maria from the Sound of Music.

I got a Netherland dwarf from a family that didn't have time to spend with him anymore. His name is Nibbles and he is all black. He is litter trained and is never caged. He was about a year old when I got him and when I first brought him home he was really nervous. He hid out all the time and didn't really like any attention from me. He gradually got used to me and now he sits in his bed and stares at me with his huge eyes until I pet him. He also hops up on my bed at night and in the morning so that I will pet him. I never thought that rabbits could such good pets. Netherland Dwarfs are also good for some people with allergies. I am allergic to cats and dogs but not my bunny's silky fur. I am very glad that decided to adopt this special little guy. :)

I have a dwarf myself, and I absolutely love her! Her name is Angel, because she is just that, an angel! She is so sweet, and loves to be played with and run around in a portable pen. She plays with her toys too. I feed her apples, carrots, pellets (a limited amount per day) and sometimes lettuce (I use it as a treat.) She is an easy keeper! I let her out in a pen for at least an hour a day (unless the weather is bad) because I have to keep her in a cage in the house. I have two dogs (which is why.)

I have a netherland dwarf rabbit. He is 10 months old and so cute. He absolutely loves his tunnel and loves to run around. Also they are very easily litterbox trained.

I am hoping to get 2 Dwarf rabbits so can breed and I am so excited!
I wonder which color is the best for show rabbits, like at a county fair.
