Why do we love rabbits? I love rabbits for so many reasons, but the tip of the iceberg is they are loving, friendly and outgoing. Rabbits make great pets for kids, teens and adults. Rabbits can easily be litter trained and taught tricks. They also take up very little space and don’t have to be walked like dogs. So let’s talk about rabbits. According to ARBA.net there are 51 recognized breeds in the United States. All rabbits originated from European rabbits. Breeds range from marked breeds such as the Dutch with straight ears to Holland Lops with their lop ears. Some breeds make better pets than others. For example the Lionhead rabbits tend to be more skittish and aggressive compared to breeds such as Holland Lops which are friendly and outgoing. For this reason Holland Lops are great for everyone where Lionheads are best for adults.
