The House Rabbit

Different Breeds
Taken from the books 'The Essential Rabbit' & 'The Rabbit Handbook'

When the rabbit was first domesticated, there was only one 'breed'. Now, however, there are forty-five breeds of rabbits recognized by the American Rabbit Breeders Association. Obviously, this wide variety means that choosing one particular breed over another can be a daunting task.

When considering which breed to acquire, keep your needs and lifestyle in mind. If you live in a small space and do not have room for a large cage, you may want to consider one of the dwarf breeds. If your time is limited, you will definitely want to stay away from the wooly breeds, as they require frequent grooming. If you have older children who plan to handle the rabbit, you will want to get a smaller breed which they can easily lift.
