Netherland dwarf bunnies are the best! They are the most cooperative, sweet, cleanest bunnies i've ever had. They are pretty easy to take care of, and an easy size to handle. These bunnies are so curious but smart.I actually find them to be a little smarter than a cat. I would defenitly tell people looking for a new pet to get Netherland dwarf bunny.

We have been breeding ARBA registered Netherland Dwarfs for a year and a half. We show at ARBA shows and breed quality rabbits. But, I know for a fact that Netherland Dwarfs colors castor, californian, red, or seal are from bad breeding choices. You can not show these colors at ARBA shows because they are not recognized. These are the 24 recognized ARBA Netherland Dwarf Colors. Black, Blue, chocolate, Lilac, Ruby-eyed white, Blue-eyed white, sable point, siamese sable, siamese smoke pearl, tortoise shell, chestnut, chinchilla, lynx, opal, squirrel, otter, sable marten, silver marten, smoke pearl marten, tan, fawn, himalayan(not californian!!)orange, and steel

I have a netherland dwarf and believe me on this, they are great! My rabbit was in the past abused. When i got her my neighbor who got my rabbits sister, said" Toastie (my rabbit) is known to bite, scratch, and growl. From what i see she just needs love like humans do. Treat animals with care especially rabbits. I suggest if you want a pet to get a netherland, they are the best friends and pets you will have. dont hold back research then go get one. They are great for being pets in show and mostly an everlasting friend even when they are gone. They are great with other pets even my dog gives Toastie kisses on the nose. They are also great with all ages even parents.
they are really fun. me and my sisters love them! they are cute and cuddly. we got ours from the paper. we got a girl and boy they came together. there names are salt and pepper.

My netherland dwarf is the sweetest little animal you can imagine!! I love having her and I play with her all the time and if you are looking to adopt a rabbit, this is the perfect kind. I live in an apartment and they are great living there, or when I go on vacation she's great living there too. My rabbit is litterbox trained and her 'play pen' is the easiest thing to clean. Netherland dwarf rabbits are the best!

We have recently bought a Netherland Dwarf, she's very clever. We have had her since she was 6 weeks old. Ruby is now 8 weeks old, she is fully house trained and responds to behaviour modification with the use of treats. Ruby comes when we shake her rattle and call her. she loves the children and they adore her. The only forseeable problem is that she may take to chewing cables when she grows older. Ruby is easy to manage and gives us as much pleasure as a cat or dog. We don't allow her outside because local foxes worrying her. we have purchased a wood chipped litter tray which prevents ant smells. Georgina and Evie 22/5/05

I have a Netherlabd Dwarf rabbit! If your starting out like I was then this a great breed to go with! I absolutely LOVE my bunny rabbit and am so thankful for him. But a word of advice: don't get them before the age of 6 weeks even if that means one more day because believe me that day counts, but that goes for any type of rabbit really. Because one of my rabbits died because I found out she was really only 5 weeks old!

My oldest daughter who is 10 years old got a dwarf bunnie when the bunnie was 9 weeks old. My daughter has since joined 4H and her bunny, Ellie, is a perfect show bunny. Ellie is an Opal. These bunnies are the perfect size for children.

We had a beautiful Netherland Dwarf Bunny who came into our lives on Christmas eve 1997 (literally) someone abandoned her and a neighbor knocked on our door. We named her Angel and she was one. Sadly our precious Angel passed away on April 28, 2005. She was a true princess, the best pet ever, she was litter box trained and when we were home had the run of the house (when we were away she was confined to two rooms). Angel brought us much joy with her antics (she would sit under the bird cage hoping to catch some seeds and jump up on to you lap to watch TV with you). Although we were blessed to have had her for 8 years my husband and I miss her very much and are in the process on adopting 2 more Netherland dwarf rabbits to love.
