Dwarf Lop Rabbit
Dwarf Lop Rabbit –
The majority of Dwarf Lops are typically small to medium-sized, reaching an average weight of 2-2.5kg at adulthood. They have soft, dense fur, of medium length. They should be groomed 2-3 times a week to keep their coat in top condition.
Although historically seen as a child’s pet, rabbits aren’t really suitable for small children. They don’t enjoy being picked up and have very fragile backs that can break easily if they’re dropped. For this reason, they’re better suited to families with older children who can spend time with them. Creating a large, natural environment for their rabbits to enjoy which will allow them to express normal behaviours such as digging, binkying, and running.
It’s important to also remember that rabbits are highly social animals, and in the wild are used to living in large groups with a vast living area. Where possible, this needs to be recreated for our domestic bunnies, and living with a suitable companion has to be at the top of this list. We recommend homing rabbits in, compatible pairs, for example, a neutered male with a neutered female.
