HI! Well I have a N. Dwarf, she is really really sweet. People that say that they are mean are wrong. I just got my bunny one week ago. My bunny likes to be petted and loves to cuddle. I love it when it runs, it looks so cute. I had a N. Dwarf a long time ago but it died. I was so sad. It died because my lil sister threw it down the stairs and my house is three stories high. And before I let her hold it, I told her 'don't drop him', and it was like I didn't tell her anything. Well, that was all.*^_^*

I own a Netherland Dwarf Rabbit and she is the cutest thing I've ever seen. Her name is Desiree and she is over a year old. She seems to have a coloring that I don't see on many web pages about rabbits. She has slate grey fur on her back, ears, legs, and face. She has a white nose, white around her eyes, on her belly, paws, and under her tail. She has a light brown patch right behind her ears on her neck. She is absolutely adorable and sweet natured. She has a very expressive face, and you can almost read her expressions and mood. My family and I love her very much, even the cat will play with her. I was wondering if anyone has seen any other Netherland Dwarfs with this color pattern.

Hi my name is Julia and I also own a dwarf netherland bunny. I love him so much, he is like one of my babies. I've owned him for 8 months. His name is Rocky. He is a smokey grey rabbit and loves to chew on paper, his little log, and his food bowl.
My family all fell in love with him. He loves to hop around and go real fast in circles and act silly for us. He loves being petted between his ears and used to sit on my chest and fall asleep under the covers.
Recently I put my hand in his cage to take him out to play with him and he started scratching me and even tried to bite me. This really upset me because I love him so much and I don't want him not trust me. He is my baby. It brought tears to my eyes to think that I did something to make him change towards me.
Now I'm scared he will bite me.
I don't know if he just needs his own space and doesn't want to be messed with.
I love him with all my heart and I want him to trust me again, but I'm scared of him now.
I guess he is just going through a stage just like my teenage children do. He is my baby and I will forever love him.

I have a Netherland Dwarf Rabbit. I have had her for about 7 months. She has always been very loving and sweet. She would lay on the couch with me watching tv for hours just about every night. All of the sudden, in the last 3 weeks, she has made a complete turn around. She is biting and scratching me. I can barely get her out of her cage to exercise. I have a nice large pen for her. She has everything she could want. When I put my hands in the cage, she attacks me. She has really bitten me hard. I have a medical problem and I am not very strong and I can not believe that this little bunny is so strong. It scares me that I may drop her because she kicks me so hard that I can barely hold on to her. I have read that females calm down if they are bred. How long does that last? Will she get mean every time she wants to breed or do they calm down after one breeding? What should I do? She is too much for me right now. When I was a child I had a male rabbit and never had any kind of behavior problem.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Hey everyone! It's me again. Last time I added a comment I had one very aggressive and territorial ND Doe and now I have two going on three. I got a ND Buck and I am going to get another doe to breed with him when he is older. Anyway I found out why my rabbit was being so territorial. She is around breeding age and apparently all does act like that until they are bred then eventually they mellow down. O and for that one girl who said ND with red eyes are ugly yea SOOOO not true!!! My ND buck is a himalayin and he has red eyes and he is sooo cute!!!! He licks your face and is very nice!

Hi, it's me Kirsten again. My N. Dwarf is a cross. I have a sister who also got a rabbit although she got a black Dwarf Lop. Her name is Rosie and she is very sweet although needs extra care as she kicks when you pick her up and gets a bit too enthusiastic when you put her down and tries to jump out of your hands. Cotton-Tail my N. dwarf is adorable and she never kicks. She is quiet and loves getting cuddles. Today both of them munched a whole clump of Bak Choy. They really like it. Earlier today Cotton-Tail weed on me! It was gross. I had to take off my jumper and put it in the wash. It was so funny. By the way if you get a baby rabbit you must take lots of photos of them as they grow quickly! I got a very cute picture of Rosie scratching her ear with her foot.

Hi! I'm getting 2 dwarfs, both black (but I haven't yet seen them so I don't know whether they're lops or not). I decided to get 2 because its nicer when they are together, so when I don't have time to play with them, they can play with each other!
I have never had dwarfs before so I am doing all the research I can, and getting lots of advice from friends. It all started when I was playing with my cats in my house and someone knocked at the door, it was my mum's friend. She wanted to talk to my mum about this club thing that they've joined. My mum was across our field, so while she was coming back my mum's friend asked if I liked rabbits, and I said that I loved rabbits! Then she said that she new a lady who had baby dwarf rabbits and if somebody didn't take them she'd put them down! I begged my mum, and in the end she agreed that we could get 2! yay!
If you have any advice for me please tell me on the blog.

p.s. I am not one of those people who gets a pet, plays with it for a week or so, and then gets bored with it. I am willing to put a lot of effort into the's bunnys.
