Well, after talking to Fug and doing research about rabbits, I really want to get one. All I have to worry about is talking my mom into it. I haven't asked her yet, I want to be more prepared. Maybe show her some pics first. Got any other suggestions? lol. Any way, I found a breeder on the web who only lives about 30-60 minutes away and she is breeding two types of rabbits, the two that I can't choose from. Netherland Dwarf and Mini Rex. So, which one do you like best?
http://www.bunnyheaven.co.uk/honey.jpg Netherland Dwarf. They are really little, I read they only get up to like 2 poounds.
http://www.exotictropicals.com/encyclo/featured_pets/Critters/Coco_Sohpie/Apr20_02.JPG Mini Rex. Also small;however, a little larger than Netherland Dwarves.
Here are both together. Black is the mini rex and the gray is the Netherland Dwarf.
So.. Which one do you like best? As far as personality goes, it depends on how you raise them, but I heard Netherland Dwarves are more hyper and mischievious than Mini Rexes, but Mini Rexes tend to be a little more cuddly. Both very good qualities in a rabbit for me lol. I emailed the breeder so I don't know which babies she has available, or if she even has any available right now. I'll keep y'all updated. :D

I would go with the Mini Rex.
I would say the mini rex to ;)

The one i had was black and fairly big, he looked a bit like that one on the 1st pic but only all black and bigger http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif He had small ears like that one too. He wasn't really hyper either, he would come up to him when u called him and licked your hand like a dog and liked to be held http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif but i've said all this before in that other topic ;)
I know mel :eek: get one of each http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif cos one will get lonely on its own. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
I have a 'Dutch' house rabbit called Harvey: he is a rabbit that thinks he's a dog!
When you come home he runs up to you and scampers round your feet, he goes mad when you rustle a sweet/crisps packet and he loves being played with.
Before Harvey, I had another Dutch rabbit (called "Dutch") and he was lovely.
I dont have any decent pics but there are lots of Dutch Rabbit sites! http://www.click-smilies.de/sammlung0304/tiere/animal-smiley-051.gif

And dont be surprised when you have to clean up after it with a vaccuum
Unless of course you litter train your rabbit......
In that case, a shovel... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Cute, but there are rabbits that are just as wonderful that need loving homes. I'm not forcing you to adopt, I'm just saying.
No, the rabbits in shelters are not normally babies (since people seem to LOVE baby animals and forget how wonderful the adult ones are too). But if you are looking for a companion then wouldn't it be great if you can save its life in the process?
OK, now I sound like I'm preaching. Shutting up.

I'm with you on this bumb1ebee. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif
I have three daughters who have had numerous rabbits and guinea pigs all from the RSPCA. You save an animal and the price you pay goes towards the upkeep of the ones left behind.

I haven't found any rabbits near my area. Sure, I think it would be WONDERFUL if I could save a rabbit; however, more an likely it would already be full grown and I would have a harder time getting it to bond with me. I am too inexperienced with rabbits to get a full grown one I think. I will keep a lookout of baby ones though. Your bunny sounds adorable robo! The dutch breed are so cute. Do you have any pics? And fug, your bunny sounded like he was adorable as well. That's sad that he died. :( You have any pics of him when he was alive? Oh, and I highly doubt I would be able to talk my mom into letting me get two rabbits, it's going to be hard to talk her into letting me get just one hahaha. I'll try though. lol.
Netherland Dwarf! Get one of those.
I had one when I was a kid. He was great fun - and quite small too. He used to drop 'cannon balls' all over the place though, which was funny!
I got mine from an animal shelter http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif the RSPCA http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
