hi, my name is patsy. i just got a netherland dwarf 2 weeks ago. i named her sierra. sierra is very dark brown, with a little white on her chin. she is very soft. sierra is fast, and can jump high. my brother calls her the most 'wascalliest wabbit' he's ever seen! i call her my 'funny bunny'. sierra is just a baby still, so she eats and drinks a lot. we are training her to come, and to use the bathroom in one place of her hutch. her toenails are a little sharp, so i wouldn't recommend holding her with bare arms. as a treat, sierra likes banana, carrot, and celery. netherland dwarfs are great!

patsy...almost 14 - sierra...about 9 weeks

I just got my dwarf rabbit for my birthday. Her name is Dilila. I am so happy because she is so nice and adorable. I love her cute little ears. She always falls asleep in my lap and i just love her so much. I never had a rabbit before so i am trying to take extra extra good care of her. And i have 4 cats and a dog. my dog is scared of her for some reason and my cats just like to watch her so nothing bad has really happened yet.

Rabbits are great pets, but Netherland Dwarfs are especially great. I believe that all rabbits should be kept in the house as cats are. Rabbits are so much like cats only better because they are not as destructive to furniture and carpets as cats are. ND's are extremely sociable and need daily contact with their humans to be happy. Stroke them, hug them (gently), speak softly and kindly to them. ND's will listen to you and if you are consistent in your comments like, "don't touch that," or "want some food," they will respond like dogs do. I can tell one of my ND bunnies, "want some food?" and he makes a bee-line for his cage and sticks his nose in his dish. Always be gentle, always be kind, speak to and interact with your bunny and you will have a great life together. Also, BE CAREFUL, don't step on your bunny. That is a real danger. I did it once when my female moved under my foot just as I was putting it down. I almost crushed her rib cage, but she was only bruised.

I love netherland dwarfs. I recently bunny sat my Vet Assisting bunny at my high school. He is such a fun bunny to have around and is not big. His name is Tater and is soo cute. I am planning on buying one soon. I would tell someone that wants a bunny to get a netherland dwarf because of their personalities.

I have an 8 week old Netherland Dwarf rabbit named Sqirt, she was born on New Years eve. I love her soo much. These Rabbits can become a hand full at times but they are a great pet to have. Squirts growing rapidiy day by day but shes still has a way to go! I'd recommend this pet to anyone who has a nice tidy, quiet and bunny-proof house. They are great.

I have a beautiful 7 month old netherland dwarf called Miffy. She is a funny character who runs around her run in circles at feeding time. She often sits in her hay ball and puts her head out of the top like a look out post. Miffy is a lovely pet, she likes to nibble our trousers when we clean her pen and hutch out. i would recommend this breed to any body.

I have two netherland dwarfs at home that are going to turn five this March. The Opal is Colt and the Blue Otter is Remington. they are brothers and I drove two hours to pick them up. Ther were only 3 months old. My fiancee was not sure but now after almost 5 years he loves those little bunnies and even gets on the floor to play with them.
