From there, breeders went on to try to make a smaller version of those Rabbits. However, they will often be temperamental, so be sure to ask the breeder about your specific rabbit before committing to a Mini Satin in case you have a busy home. Different rabbit breeds have completely different wants, sizes, appearances, personalities, well being issues, and life spans. Make sure you select one that may match your home and that you can care for properly. Weighing in at solely 2.5 lbs, the Netherland Dwarf is certainly one of the smallest rabbit breeds.
