Man I love Netherland dwarf bunnies. My girl Bunnie is about to have babies, her name is MARLINA. Her husband's name is MARLIN, and yes he is a wizard {ha ha ha}. I hope Marlina has lots of baby bunnies.

I just bought two dwarf bunnies and they are so adorable. I named them Lucky Travis and London Tarrist. They will complete my home of loving pets. I will keep them indoors and protected them and also make them an outdoor cage in a shaded area and they will be able to go underground. But first I will put fencing under the dirt so they don't get out. That way they'll keep cool in the earth when I am in my garden planting my veggies. I had rabbits growing up and they get really hot and can die of heat stroke if not protected. They need to be in a cool place and safe from other animals. Love your pets, everyone needs care and nurturing.

Help! We just got an 8 mo. old Netherlands Dwarf male and he is very aggressive! We were hoping for a bunny that loves to be cuddled and held and this one just bites us continually. We make sure to hold him properly and are quiet and gentle. I don't think he was handled much in his previous home. But this behavior has me thinking we adopted the wrong rabbit! I have heard that neutering will help and I've heard that since there are no females around, it's probably not so much of a hormonal issue as a behavior problem. Is there hope, or did we just get one that will always be aggressive??

Hiya! I'm new to this, so I thought I would send a comment. I'm also getting a new baby rabbit in about 10 days. He is a cross breed between a white albino Polish Dwarf and a black Netherland Dwarf rabbit. His name is Shea, which I named him after a character from a game of mine, which is sad really, but he is just like the character. He comes from a family of show rabbits. His name is Irish, meaning stately one. He is very sweet and very friendly. He is Jet black, and is a lot like his dad, the black Netherland Dwarf. He has one younger brother and a sister. His brother is shy, his sister is gentle, and Shea is the cheeky one. I'm getting his things this friday. Even though I dont have Shea yet, I still love him. He is 6 weeks at the moment, but I cant wait to have him here at his new home!

Hi Barb. I have three ND's and your bunny seems like she is very sick, especially if shes not eating. Rabbits are not supposed to have fruit of veggies until they are six months of age so it would be good to stop feeding her them. If she does have a cold, she should improve over time but she needs to eat and drink so monitor her and make sure she does. Also, check her belly for bloating because one of my rabbit's belly was not eating and his belly was severely bloated and he died that night. I'm not an expert but if you want expert advice, go to "Allexperts.com" they helped me with alot of my rabbit problems.

We are new parents of a sweet little netherland named Dolly Biscuit. After reading about the breed, we decided to purchase one as a family pet. We fell in love the moment we saw her! She is light/medium gray in color and has the cutest little face. We have found out quickly that she loves her treats and chews and also her little jingle balls. I'm glad that I found this website to read other stories from owners and also share my story, too.

For christmas my Hubby got me a netherland dwarf. She is beautiful. She does have some aggression issues towards strangers, but if I show them how to deal with her she usually does great. She sleeps with me at naptime curdle up with my cats and dogs and me on the bed. She plays with my cats. And the biggest surprise is 30 days after we got her, she had 4 babies. All are well and doing great. 6 days old today and Cuddles is a good mommy. Hope everyone is patient with and enjoys their bunnies.

Hello, my name is Barb. We have a netherland dwarf named "BooBoo" and our little girl has been sick since Christmas day. BooBoo started out with difficulty breathing and making squeaking noises with each breath, her breathing was labored. We took her to the vet the next day which resulted in an exam followed with an injection of Baytrill and tablets to be crushed and given to her for ten days. The tablets simply did not work because mixing them with water was too traumatic for her and too much liquid at one time. We took her in a second time which resulted in another exam (different Vet) and a vial of Baytrill and enough syringes to give her one injection for the next 10 days. Since then her breathing is less labored however she continues to have a lot of mucous draining from her nose. I wipe her nose numerous times every day with a damp cloth, sometimes there is so much that it is dry and crusty. BooBoo is not eating, she does drink but not much. We put carrots, lettuce, Timothy hay and fruit in her cage but to no avail. We love our bunnies and it hurts to see her in this condition. If BooBoo has a cold, will she improve in time? Please advise! Thank-you!
