I just got my N. bunny and named it snikers. I am 10 years old and it is my very own pet! It loves to be out of the cage and hops back in when it has to go potty. It loves Alfalfa hay and DOES NOT like carrots...lol. It likes sweet things (sweet potato, apples.) The pet store says it is 8mo old, but my vet says younger. I am so glad my mom and dad got me this bunny. She is my best friend for life.

I love my netherland dwarf rabbit. She is so tiny and loves to be cuddled, as long as she's not held...she hates that. But I have to say, after being with her for 12 years and still going, (I got her when I was 7 and I'm 19 now) she's definitely the best rabbit, and oldest rabbit I've ever had.

I have one named Rosie, and if you decide to get one, make sure you play with it regularly or else it will get really mean and try to bite you any time you stick your hand in it's cage (even to feed it)! I found this out the hard way.

Our little dwarf rabbit is named Bunners, after a childhood pet (wild) baby rabbit. I got him from a family whose kids had grown and Bunners was spending all his time in a small glass tank. He's about 7 yrs old and crippled: his right front shoulder was dislocated when he was dropped years ago. He had an inguinal hernia, which we had surgically corrected, along with neutering. He's gained back the weight and good health he'd lost and is sweet, loving, smart, and very happy now. He's in a big cage (without the horrible wire mesh floor) and gets lots of "hop-around-time" out of the cage. Our female beagle loves him and they often lie down together when Bunners is out of the cage. What a wonderful pet he is! We adore him!

I have had a dwarf bunny for exactly three years now and my bunny cannot get any cuter. He weighs three pounds and is a dark chocolate brown. He is housebroken and he always comes when he is called. I don't know what I would do without him. He loves to munch on dry papaya, sesame seeds, fresh banana, oatmeal and apple and most definitely carrots. This bunny is my present, past and future!

We got a female Netherland Dwarf Bunny yesturday. She is white and blue-eyed and my sister and I named her Lucky. She is 6 weeks old and we love very much. My mom says we should leave her alone this week so she can get used to us, but all we want to do is cuddle her. We told all our friends and all they want to do is cuddle her too. She is awesome already and I want to dedicate this to Lucky. "We love you Lucky!"

I have a Netherland Dwarf rabbit named Lulu. Her previous owners abandoned her and my husband and I "adopted" her as our pet. The vet estimated that she's about 2 years old. She has been wonderful and has brought us much joy and laughter. We've taught her to play It tag (we'll tap her head and then crawl away real fast and she'll come chasing after us). She follows us around and entertains us with her speed running and happy kicks. Lulu enjoys munching on the Sunday paper when I'm trying to read it and likes to unravel the toilet paper. She loves fruit (pears are her favorite). The only problem we've had with her is that she likes to chew on the carpet and baseboards. She doesn't understand the meaning of "No" and often ignores us when we try to stop her from chewing on things. She is very intelligent and it amazes me that something that weighs 3.6 pounds can outsmart two humans. She's just awesome!

I have just bought a netherland dwarf two days ago and she is so cute and cuddly. Her name is Smokey because she is grey (her color type is called Chinchilla). She is very much different then my other rabbits especially because I can't walk her outside like my other ones because she won't fit the harness. but she gets held and she watches the other rabbits run around the yard while I walk them. Overall I think out of my three different breeds of rabbits it is the calmest and cuddliest of all!

Kinda pushed to adopt this fella. Apparently he's not pedigree, but who cares? lols. I fell in love with him. Named him Garfield as he resembles the Cat that looks like his face got rammed into the wall countless times(flatface).

Netherlands are great! I have a young female dwarf named Millie. She is just the sweetest thing, and a great runner! She ran away for a day or two awhile ago, but, she is back home and happy. Whenever we walk by her cage, she stand up on her hind legs and puts her front paws against the cage. So cute!
