  1. Obviously written by a mini Lop breeder. The Dwarf Lop have a far more better temperament for children than the mini Lop. They are like the even, kindly temperament of a Labrador. Being bigger they are built more robust to cope with an accidental mishap eg being dropped than a smaller rabbit. I was told the Dwarf Lop was bred to be a child’s pet.

    • Thankyou for your comment. I’ve been researching about rabbits and also read dwarf lops were better suited for younger children. Reading this confused me but seeing your comment reassured me it was the right choice to go with
