Abbey Green produces mini lop, mini plush lop, and netherland dwarf rabbits. From time to time, we may have adult rabbits available for re-homing (rescue/rehome or retired from breeding).
Mini lops are a small, lop eared breed who are very intelligent and interactive. Smaller than dwarf lops, they can be trained to use a litter box, come to their name, and perform basic tricks. Mini lops are generally well suited for children as they are naturally inquisitive, and fairly robust for their size. Their nature is often described like that of a dog as they tend to be very people orientated and will usually seek out attention. They are super intelligent and great fun for all ages. The more affection you give, the more you will receive.
The mini plush lop is also great for families who are more prone to allergies due to their unique hypo-allergenic velvet coat. Mini plush lops are a relatively new breed, which combines the best traits of the mini lop and mini rex, to create a friendly, interactive and visually appealing rabbit with lopped ears and a soft, short, hypoallergenic velvet coat. It was a breed in development since the 1990's, until the hard work and persistence of devoted breeders paid off and they were accepted in Australia in 2014.
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 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.
At Abbey Green, we strive to produce quality purebred mini lop rabbits that are true to type, with good health and temperament. Mini lop rabbits are the smallest breed with lopped ears and the show standard maximum adult weight is 1.6kg. The dwarf lop is a bigger breed, weighing 1.93-2.38kg. Mini lops are highly suited as pets due to their outgoing, affectionate and inquisitive nature. They are very intelligent and can be trained (litter box, tricks, come to name).
