The Netherland Dwarf is a
smaller breed of rabbit and ideally should only weigh about one kilogram. It
is considered one of the cutest of the rabbits and comes in a wide variety
of colours. Females tend to be more of parental nature and more pleasant
than males, who can sometimes be aggressive. However, with some work and
patience, Netherland Dwarfs are quite tame and are considered one of the
most suitable types of rabbits for pets nowadays for older children and
adults. They are not suitable for smaller children simply due to the
smallness of stature, which makes them somewhat fragile and easily stressed.
It must remembered though, as a prey animal, they will react to people
looming over them, so placing your nethie at a height where it doesn’t feel
threatened will help it to live with much less stress.
