I have owned 3 netherlands and can confirm that they are the sweetest. Some people are afraid that they are a little nervous, but I think it has to do with the household they are raised in. I am a very unorthodox mommy and the 2 guys I have now behave just like my babies. We are so attached, my little Pearl goes to the door to see me off to work. Yes, my little guys are "free range" bunnies. I have well bunny proofed my house and they are free to roam all day. My little guys love to play kissy face and are always gooming my hairline and eyebrows. I can even sometimes ask for a kiss and Pearl will stand up and plant one on my lips. It is all about the love and security they feel in their home.

    It depends on where you live. Do some research about the breeders and..the breed. Make sure your 9 y/o is responsible and doesn't want a cuddle bunny, since netherlands aren't the cuddliest breed. If she/he does want a cuddler, I would say a lop. :)

I have a Netherland dwarf and she has the sniffles. Does anyone have an idea what I could do for her sniffles?

    Best guess would be allergy or respiratory infection. Have you changed to a different bedding, food or litter just recently? If you have you could try changing back. If your little guy is the least bit lethargic or not eating as usual, then I would get him to the vet as you will probably need some antibiotics.

    I would take it to the vet she might have snuffels.

I have fallen in love with Netherland Dwarfs when I was only about eight years old. My first rabbit that I fell in love with was Cocoa who has passed away March of 2005. My next rabbit is named Inky and I just love her with all my heart. I fell in love with this breed and changing is just out of the story. My rabbit is very sweet, lovable, loyal, and commpassionate. Although the Netherland is known for its bad temperment, I totally disagree; my rabbit loves snuggles and loves to explore more than anything in the whole, wide world!

    Rabbits are herbivorses and need a lot of hay - timothy is good and some green leafy vegetables. You can do a little fruit like apple as a treat. Netherlands aren't real big and don't eat much. Pellets are for industrial use to promote fast growth and not the best thing for your little guy to eat. Alfalfa is good but unlimited amounts of hay should always be provided.

My daughter was given a Netherlands Dwarf Lion head last Easter. Link, (he bears a resemblance to Abraham Lincoln..haha),has the most amazing personality and scares our Yellow Lab to death! He is unusually intelligent for a rabbit and very beautiful! We heart our little wee Link!

    My first rabbit - English Spot - would chase my brothers german shepherd all over the house and yard. Hysterical to watch.

    Yah. I have a HUGE cat named Duma. Once my friend actually called him a mini mountain lion! Well, anyway, my Netherland Dwarf named Napster chases him! LOL! And Duma won't go near Napster! XD

We have 2 boy netherland dwarf rabbits. They are about 8 months old and are brothers. They have lived in the same cage until a few days ago when we have had to house them seperatly as they are now fighting with each other. One rabbit is worse that the other as when we try to take him out of the cage or even change his food he is constantly going for us and being very aggresive towards us. The other rabbit tries to bite us but not as often as the other one.
This is quite heart breaking as they wasn't like this a couple of weeks ago and they are our childrens pets and they can't even touch them. please help.

    Your litttle guys have reached puberty and their hormones kick in. Two male rabbits can't normally be housed together unless they are neutered. I would recommend you get both neutered if you want them as pets. They should return to the NORMAL fellas they were.

    I would reccomend not getting them neutered until you have found a rabbit vet, not a normal one. rabbits can be killed if you aren't careful!

My Netherland Dwarf has an attitude, big time. When in his playpen, he doesnt run, rarely jumps, most of the time he is chewing on the bars in hopes to get out, I assume. He is two yrs. and just now is being friendly. Is this the nature of this breed?

Hey. It's been awhile, but just to tell you, I found out my rabbit is a girl :D LOL! She is so frisky, with a hoppity spirited personality. She loves to hop around. She is s-l-o-w-l-y growing into her color, which is siamese sable. In 6 days she will be going to the fair park and strutting her stuff. This is also my 3rd year in rabbits, so ask me questions. :)
