I have a silver netherland dwarf with dark grey markings on his muzzle, ears, and feet. His name is Sterling and he's four years old. I "rescued" him from the SPCA two years ago.

I don't have a rabbit now but did.

He was a netherland dwarf. Orange and copper coloring. His name was Copper. He died in June 04. I have had 10 rabbits over the years.

I have a large mixed breed guy named Big Ben. He's about 10 pounds, I'm not sure how old he is; I got him from the shelter in January 2004.



I had a little Holland Lop from July 2003-February 2004 - she passed away not long after being spayed. She didn't react well to the anesthesia =(

We just received a mixed little bunny (part Dutch, part mini-Lop, I believe? But don't hold me to it. I'm only certain of the Dutch part, as I saw her mother, but not her father!) She's black and white, with the cutest little flopped down ears, and 6 weeks old.

I adopted a little bunny about a month ago after the passing of my black and white dutch. His name is Tater. I believe he's a dwarf hotot. Here's a pic of him. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v378/cat_in_the_hat72/Picture013_edited.jpg He's got quite a personality and loves to be with his people.

I also have a mini rex, brown spotted with white, she is so EVIL! She attacks me when I try to take her out, but I'm ok with it. I alos have a Brittine petite (spelling), his name is Ricky and he is brown with white underneath.

bunnyluv17
10-20-04, 01:05 pm
It sounds like she is territorial about her space. It would help if you allow her to go in and out of her cage on her own. Another thing that would help is to lose the cage alltogether, aggressive rabbits often do better in a large area like a puppy exercise pen (x-pen).

(Sorry for not answering earlier) I can't let her out of her cage because she digs! I used to swap her and the male in an outside area, but she escaped 3 times! I put the rabbits in their cages until its warmer. I already know her warning signs, but thank you for the website anyways.

bunnyluv17
12-14-04, 01:41 pm
What about setting up an area in the kitchen? Or giving her lots of acceptable things to dig/chew? Like a digging box, towel, sandbox, old phonebook, pinecones, etc. Rabbits need daily out-of-cage time to exercise and play, how would you like to be stuck in a closet 24/7?

I have a mini rex named "pupcake". We call him "puppy" most of the time. He is white with black cow-like markings. He has a terrific personality and I discovered recently, by reading some suggested rabbit behavior articles, that he is head over heals in love with me! He loves being under foot and nibbles on my pant leg for attention. He also loves to play "catch me if you can". He has a 3-floor bunny palace to himself. I am looking to adopt a bunny friend for him in a few months. Here is a link to see him...

http://community.webshots.com/user/lilliesmomma

There are some photos from last year with him and his original TINY cage before I built him his palace.

I certainly lucked out with him - he is a loving little guy. Anyone know someone in Southern NH down to the Boston area who has a bunny who needs a home? Let me know... we have plenty of space!

Try also to not yell at her for protecting her space or herself. Speak to her sweetly. I never force my buns in or out of their cage. If I need them back in their cages if they aren't already there, I lure them with parsley! They come pretty quickly with a sniff of that!

How big does a flemish giant get? I'm sure Bernie will appreciate the new home! Congrats!

My mini rex is the only rabbit I have owned and am unfamiliar with the other breeds. I love the fact that I rarely have 'hair' issues with the mini rex - he's all soft peach fuzz and really doesn't shed much. Puppy was officially weighed at the vet last week... he is 5lbs. His 'castration' (as the vet put it - what an ugly word) went very well and he's been begging to get out of his cage since the anesthesia wore off but the vet said to confine him for 5 days -- he doesn't seem to like this too much.

Yesterday the cage kept falling apart. I was NOT happy about that.
But as soon as I get his supplies today and set them up, I'll pick him up... in the rain -_-
He got neutered yesterday, how should I care for him? *very worried as he is my first bunny*
I think some get about 14 pounds or more, but he's only part, so he might not get any bigger.

Did you use the cube panels? If so, get some plastic cable ties, this will hold the cage together nicely. They really make the cage strong. Mine kept falling apart until I did this. The round plastic corners don't really hold the wire panels too well.

You may want to put some extra cable ties on the horizontal levels - he's pretty heavy. This will strengthen it. I think the best idea I have seen for different levels was when someone used wire closet shelving cut down to fit the space. This is quite strong. Look at the pictures of other peoples cages. I think this is the best way to determine what you should do.

Mine was neutered at the end of last week. He seemed a bit swollen for a day or two but the swelling has already gone down. After the anesthesia wore off he's acted like normal - he hates being confined to his cage.

lilliesmomma
03-31-05, 03:16 pm
Mine did the same thing. At first I was using twist ties to 'lock' the cage door. Now I use several Office Binder Clips around the door and it works great! It's too strong of a hold for him to get out.

What breed of rabbits so y'all have here?I have a 10 week old, chocolate dutch rabbit, named Molly.

I got guinea pigs a few weeks ago, but they're not the companion pets I envisioned. They're more "watch me" pets.

So, I've wanted a rabbit for a long time, but thought maybe they'd be too much work.... but now I'm starting to rethink that premise.

I was thinking about getting a Dutch rabbit... eventually. I think they're really cute, and if I could do it all over again... I would have gotten that instead of two cavies..... but whatcha gonna do...

I would like a rabbit that isn't too small and not too big. I know a Dutch is considered a small size rabbit, but they seem fairly big in pictures. Exactly how big are they? And do they make good companion pets?

bunnyluv17
04-22-05, 01:27 pm
It depends more on the individual personality of the rabbit than the breed. I've heard of Dutches ranging in size from 2-5 lbs. Most rabbits will require you to earn their trust, but once you do they can be extremely affectionate and endearing pets. Definitely research before getting a rabbit, a great place to start is www.rabbit.org (http://www.rabbit.org)

Please adopt rather than buy, thousands of rabbits are euthanized every year. You will have a wide variety of rabbits to choose from at a shelter or rescue, and most rescues/shelters will spay/neuter the rabbit for you. I volunteer at a shelter and we get tons of purebreed rabbits (including lots of Dutches). I know it is tempting to go for the cute little baby rabbit; but you won't know the true personality of the rabbit until it is full grown. If you adopt an adult rabbit, you know what you are getting. Spayed/neutered adults are much easier to littertrain than a baby; and just like other baby animals, baby rabbits are into everything.

Well, I thought it would be kind of cool to have a creature with a youthful energy and curiousity about the world in the house...

Rachy1412
04-22-05, 02:08 pm
You can get youngish rabbits at shelters too. I don't think that an adult rabbit is easier to have than a baby...

And please don't get me wrong.. I am all for getting animals at a shelter!

That's interesting! She looks very similar to the lop-eared rabbit, but she definitely doesn't have the lop ears. Hers are straight up.

She is tri-colored: white with brown and grey markings. She is about 6-7lbs.

Emenem, Looks like a Holland lop mix. My thumper is the same colouring as yours but full blooded holland lop. There is no such thing as mini lop as a breed but can be called that since they are small.

Lilliesmomma, your buns is def a holland lop mix. My Abby is exact same colouring as yours but a lop.

I now have a baby flemish giant her name is SweetPea. Her mom weighed at 17 lbs and still growing. Her dad whom just passed away weighed at 20 lbs and was still growing until he had heat stroke.

We will be getting a few more flemish giants and getting some lionheads once we get our own new home. SweetPea will probably weigh about 22lbs when she is full grown.

What is a "hotots"?

There are two breeds of hotots- Blanc de Hotots and dwarf hotots. Both are white with thin black eyebands and blue eyes. Neither are particularly common, especially not the Blanc de Hotot as it's usually not kept as a pet. Mine are dwarfs- their body shape is similar to a Netherland Dwarf.

Want to know why nobody wanted him? He has red eyes and i guess alot of people are scared of red eyes. Gosh, how can a rescue do that? Dump off a bunny at a kill shelter because nobody wanted him? He has a great life now. Full of love. To be honest, albinos arent my forst choise but once i say him, i knew he was mine!~ Charlie is his name!~

I'm glad to see that some people here have larger rabbits!

I have a pure-bred Flemish Giant male, 3 years old, and he weighs 15 pounds. Now I think he's kind of small (considering my Manx cat is 20 pounds), but I've been told otherwise... :)

Any of you with larger bunnies, have you had trouble building a large enough C&C cage? Mine is a bit small I think, especially as he doesn't get as much floor time as I would like, so I was wondering about other people's cages. I am also getting him a female soon, so his cage needs to be expanded to accomodate 2 bunnies.

Wow your flemmie is small for his age. By the time they turn one they weigh already wopping 20 lbs. I had a flemmie who is now 9 mos old and weighs 13lbs and still growing. Usually they stop growing at the age of a year and half usually weighing between 22 to 30 lbs. Now my MeatHead probably will weigh at least 25 lbs when he stops growing.

Is he neutered. He would be one happy bun if he could have a companionship. Now for a recomended cage if he is not out much is at least 2x4 and 2 high with a roof. For 2 buns, depending how much this girl weighs and what breed I would recomend at least 2x8 to 2x10 if you want the cage to be long or you could do a 3x8 or 3x9 if you want to make it more wider. Up to you and depending on how big your place is. You should try and have him out more ofton that you do now. Alot of people get another bun for a companioship.

Yes, he is definitely on the small side for his breed. I've read that the minimum show weight for bucks is 13 pounds, so he is on the low end of the scale.

He is the fawn color and it seems like all the fawns I have come across have been on the small side too. It's weird, but the only large ones I have seen in my area are sandy or gray. Just out of curiosity, what color are your bunnies?

No, he is not yet neutered. But he has an appointment in 2 weeks. I've been in contact with a local rabbit rescue group and met a few bunnies that I like and hopefully he will too. They still need to be fixed as well, and one of them is still recovering from being malnourished, then we will try the introductions. But it is probably a month or so away.

Thanks for the cage recommendations. I might end up affixing an exercise pen to the cage to give more floor time. I saw a few cages like that on this site and I liked the idea.

:D I have a flemmie she is alittle over a year old. When we got her they said 8mnths so she would have born in November. Which means she will be 2 then. She weighs 13lbs. It was horrible trying to find a cage. Samantha Jane now has an x-pen.

04-13-06, 09:43 am
JZ are you sure she is a flemmie. For being near 2 yrs old she should be well over 20lbs by then. Something is wrong there. My flemmie MeatHead is almost 1 and he is now 19lbs and still growing, my friend has a femail flemmie who is almost 1 as well and is is near 19lbs as well. You might have a mix breed of a flemmie. Could you post a pic of your bun.

She does look like a flemmie also a mix in her. I am not sure but she does have a flemmie in her. MeatHead's ears were like hers and body as well. But she is beautiful. Aww poor Ringo, he is cute, I know alot of people who have the same breed as ringo with a black dot on his nose as well. They all are sooooooo cute.

That's an awful lot of small cages. Are your rabbits house rabbits and just have their cages as their safe/night spot or do they live in that as their main environment?

04-13-06, 10:05 am
He and Conner were both bought at the same pet store (before I knew better). They told us they are dwarfs. We got Ringo July 8, 2005. Conner on January 14. We took Ringo as an emergency visit last Sunday (april2nd). That Saturday we took Conner because he had been sneezing and didn't want to risk it. Samantha was a rescue a friend surprised us with. She didn't know we had bought Ringo the night before. Teresa we got Febuary 22 this year. We were with Conner at Petco getting food. An employee came up to us and asked if we wanted another. :mad: She was being kept outside in the freaking snow. Sorry I still get mad.:mad: It doesn't matter she belongs to us now and we love her.

NO NO!! Sorry no they have new cages. Samantha lives in an X-pen. The pic of Teresa she was in a box while we set up a new cage for Conner. Teresa is now in the cage that you see Sam in. They have litter pan, toys, and, food dish each. They are able to run around and stand straight up. Pics are not the best took them with my phone.

All of my bunnies are rescues, so weren't selected because they were a special breed, but because of personality. That being said, I have...

1 black/white "broken" mini-lop, Angus (who insists he is NOT broken!)
1 fawn mini-lop/french lop mix, Hazel (more mini than french)
1 fawn/lilac mini-rex, Madeline (The Pwincess)
1 white w/ black "trim" English Spot mix, George

I also have 4 dwarf mix fosters... we don't know exactly what they are, but probably some kind of satin mix. A couple of them have agouti coloring (they look like wild bunnies, except one of them is a VERY dark brown agouti), one is a beautiful blue/gray, and the last is all black with a white spot on her nose and one front paw. They're too cute!

That's one of the coolest things about being involved in rabbit rescue... I've had everything from a tiny Netherland Dwarf boy with Californian coloring, to a beautiful big Giant Chinchilla girl. All with wonderful, distinct personalities :-)

I just got a bunny last month. He is a fuzzy lop. He is about a year old and his name is Jamie Fuzzy Wuzzy. His coloring is gray and white. He's very tame and friendly. He gets nutered next week and after a few weeks will start looking for a friend.
He is not from a pet store. A teenage girl who had used him for show, did not want him anymore. She asked me if I wanted him so I took him.

My first rabbit I got when at a little over 6 weeks from my dad's friend. He was a very smart Hotot? called Oreo. You could let him out during the day and no matter where he was in the house he would return to his cage to potty. He died and I went through years with hamsters. After my last most beloved hamster, Ruby, died, I got another rabbit 8 months later. This guy is a blue dutch pattern called Savage, Sav for short. He has a bigger cage that is tall and goes their at night and to potty, although he only sometimes forgets to poo in there he always pees in his litter box.

Well I now have rabbit number 2. I got Jackie, who is a Holland Lop from the Humane Society on Weds. She was just spayed so after she heals she will become friend to Jamie Fuzzy Wuzzy. She is a tan and white. She's a very pretty bunny. The Humane Society said the family that had her didn't want her anymore. So she is now part of my family.

I currently have one bunny. He is albino, thats all I know about him. I used to have two bunnies. We first got Picky (Picky is short for Piccasso) and we dicided to get him a friend. We adopted Louisa but after a year or so she got very sick, and we had to put her down.:( Now we just have Picky, a spoiled little house bunny, he's like a cat. He goes in a litter box and everything hahaha.

There is no such thing as an albino rabbit, guinea pigs. The only animal you see that are albinos are rats, dogs, and cats.

Actually, that's not true. It's just that albino rabbits are usually referred to as REW- Red Eyed Whites. An albino animal is one with no pigmentation, including the eyes which usually look pink. Albinism occurs in all sorts of animals, including ferrets, squirrels, horses ("true" white as opposed to light gray horses), and humans.

Oh, Hi Naturestee, it is Angel(SweetPeasMommie) Thanks for pointing that out. I guess my brother in law did have an albino cause he was all white with one pink eye and one purple eye. I think he was a flemmie cause he was pretty big too.

At the moment I have one rabbit named Allister. He is a male Rex as far as I know, I don't really know his color or if he is a mini rex or a regular sized one but I love him to death and he has an amazing personality.

The grey rabbit in the thumbnails is Smokey, she passed away last year. She was a Siamese Smoke Pearl Netherland Dwarft, she was a big one though. She was my baby and I miss her alot.

We have a bonded pair of bunnies. Toby is an all black mini-lop. Lizzy is a harlequin mini-rex. Her coloring is a mottled tan and gray and her fur is softer than the softest velvet. Lizzy was adopted from a local rabbit rescue. We took Toby on a blind date to meet the lady rabbits there and it was love at first sight. They are devoted to each other.

I have Leo an 11 month old Lionhead rabbit that I rescued from a breeder that was going to "cull" him (which actually means kill with a hammer). He is not "show quality" as he is black with a white nose and 1 white foot.

I also rescued 16 English Angora rabbits about 3 months ago from a nightmare situation. I have found great homes for all but 3 now. They are such sweeties!

All of my buns are spayed/neutered and litter box trained. They also have the run of most of our house. I have had rabbits in my life since I was 12 years old. So far my oldest lived to be 14 years old!
