Netherland Dwarf Rabbit

Netherland Dwarf Rabbit

This extremely cute bunny is easily one of the most popular show rabbits in the United States. It is also very popular in Europe where it is known as the 'European Pole'.

Most of the time Netherland Dwarfs are happy, friendly little pets, but once in a while there will be one that becomes less agreeable as it approaches breeding age. During this time it may be more protective of its body and its cage.

Usually the bunny will settle down and become friendly again if it is bred. However if you aren't planning on breeding, getting your bunny sterilized can often help avoid behavioral problems. There are also definite health benefits for the rabbit as well. Neutering or spaying can be done when your rabbit is over 4 months of age.
