Jersey Wooly Rabbits

A very small bunny, an adult Jersey Wooly Rabbit will only weigh up to about three pounds. This little rabbit is noted for being extremely gentle. They are sweet and docile, as well as smart.

The Jersey Wooly Rabbit likes people and affection. It enjoys companionship and being petted and handled.They are calm, quiet rabbits that are pretty easy to care for. All these great qualities make an ideal pet for children and adults alike.

Though its long fur makes it a bit more work than a short haired bunny, the Jersey Wooly enjoys being brushed. It only needs brushing about once a month as an adult. It will need just a bit more than that when it is young, until it looses its baby coat.

Known as the Jersey Wooly Rabbit in the United States, this rabbit is also known as the Dwarf Angora Rabbit in Australia and Europe. It was developed by Bonnie Seeley of New Jersey (USA) in the 1970's.

  • Jersey Wooly Rabbit - In the United States, it became recognized by the American Rabbit Breeders Association (A.R.B.A.) in 1988, as the Jersey Wooly Rabbit.
  • Dwarf Angora Rabbit - In Australia (and Europe), this rabbit is recognized as the Dwarf Angora Rabbit,and it received recognition by the Australian Show Rabbit Council in 1997.
