Is a rabbit the right pet for my family?

The average life expectancy of a rabbit is 7-10years, requiring daily care. While they don't require walking, and wont bark to disrupt the neighbours, there are important care requirements to ensure your rabbit has a long and happy life.
Read our care info section to get a sense of whats involved. 

A happy and affectionate rabbit is one that has regular, gentle social interaction and stimulation (eg. playtime and cuddles) in addition to it's basic needs being met (safety, a clean shelter, appropriate diet and fresh water, vet care as needed). The more love and gentle attention you give a rabbit, the more friendly and interactive it will be. If you have young children, supervision will be needed to ensure the rabbit is handled safely. Rabbits make great pets if you understand and cater to their requirements.

Our babies are handled daily to ensure they are friendly and calm.

Which breed is suitable?

Abbey Green produces mini lop and netherland dwarf rabbits. From time to time, we may have adult rabbits available for re-homing (rescue/rehome or retired from breeding). 


The netherland dwarf is the smallest rabbit variety in Australia with a show maximum of 1.1kg. They are packed with personality, and are characterised by short stubby ears, their small size and bold eyes. The netherland tends to be a very clean rabbit, who keeps their hutch tidy and is easy to litter train. A little more fragile in bone structure than a lop, but is well muscled, giving a cobby appearance. Their size means they are best suited for older children and adults, or children who are very gentle. The netherland dwarf was once described as a timid breed, however selective breeding over many years has seen their temperament become more calm and friendly. They are often described like a cat, in that they are happy to be held and can be very affectionate, but they can be a little more independent than a lop.
