We've been searching the internet... my 15 yr old daughter & I want to buy a Netherland Dwarf... we haven't had much luck on finding any in our area. I don't mind driving a few hours away.
What are the price ranges? Understanding we're not looking for a show bunny.
We have 2 cats now, sisters adopted from shelter. I raised hamsters most of my life... and have always wanted a rabbit...the Netherland Dwarf seems perfect for us. We are animal lovers and would love to surprise my daughter for her birthday the end of oct.
Any help in finding one, tips, advise on these sweet little animals would be greatly appreciated. Thank you - Amy

I have a common garden much loved spayed male rabbit and I would like a companion for him, I.E another bunny. Benni is a much loved family indoor bunny. He has plenty of freedom outside his cage of a day time and is a nice friendly rabbit. My local pet shop has netherland dwarf rabbits for sale 2 males and 2 females and I must admit I have fallen in love with one of the females and I am considering buying her as a companion for Benni. We have 2 cats who we mainly keep away from Benni, although we do allow a small amount of close attended contact to enable Benni's safety, and ensure there is no pet jealousy. Benni obviously would love to frolic with the cats but they stare at him rather aloofly hence my desire for a companion for Benni. Benni is now a year old and I would like advice as to whether a female would be an ideal companion for a spayed male or should we go for a male (which we would get spayed in the future). The cats would obviously only meet the new arrival through the bars of the cage and we would introduce Benni and his new play mate gradually, keeping them in separate cages until we are sure they can happily share Benni's larger cage. Any advice gratefully received.

I had one that lived up to 14 years old. This breed has the most variety of personalities. You'll never know what you're going to have. They range from extremely friendly to extremely aggressive. Some eat vegetables and some prefer only grains. Some don't enjoy being outside. Some do. Some like being picked up and be petted, even some licking your neck for saltiness, and some don't. My first rabbit enjoyed sitting on my leather couch while my second wants to get out of there ASAP! Weird, huh?

I have just gotten my first neverland dwarf rabbit, mine is 1 year old female so we just called her libby. Her last owner just bred her so I thought it would be nice to give her a home. Libby is very tame and loves her new hutch as it's a lot bigger than the 1 she was in. I would recommend this type of rabbit to other people. She loves to be handled by myself and my children.

I've had a dwarf bunny for 5 or 6 weeks and it died today august 12, and I do not know why it died yesterday. The bunny was acting weird and felt weak. I knew he was going to die today. I need some information why he died. I took really good care of him :(

Our family has had a wonderful Netherland Dwarf rabbit for 8 years. He is an indoor rabbit and allowed to run the house when we are home. He has a 4'x5' cage for times when he is alone. Though he doesn't like to be picked up, he is quick to jump into the lap of anyone who sits on the floor and will groom anyone who sits still for that tongue! He is a great pet and my two boys absolutely love him. They have trained him to 8 words and love to play toss with him. Though he sleeps more now than when he was a youngster, he still loves to run around the furniture and 'dive' under the tunnels the boys make for him. We hope he will be with our family for many more years!

HI! Lolz! My name is Isabel and I have a Netherland Dwarf Rabbit. I mean, how cool is that! Her name is Cinnamon as she's a beautiful golden brown rabbit. My best friend has one too, but her's is male. I told her that we'd get them married when they are 3 yrs of age. How cute! Just imagine them exchanging carrots! Once I get my new dog, I'll definitely share how it's going with all of you!

I have a netherland dwarf 7 weeks old her name is sniffles. I call her that obviously
because thsts what she does. My bunny is perfect because when I set her next to she hops on my lap, anyway. I would strongly recommend the Netherland dwarfs to children who can understand the concept of responsibility.
