NETHERLAND DWARF

Netherland Dwarf

Four generations of Dunhams have enjoyed raising rabbits.

Among the many breeds raised since the early 1900’s, Netherland Dwarfs have been a constant.

The Netherland dwarf is the smallest of the 49 current breeds recognized by the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA).

Netherland Dwarfs are divided into 5 color groups, Self, Shaded, Agouti, Tan Pattern, and AOV (any other variety) and judged according to the ARBA standard.

The Dunham Farm breeds for “type and temperment”

Type: A large rounded head, bold eyes, small and well-furred ears on a short compact body.

Temperment: A calm, gentle disposition that is extraodinary compared to most domestic rabbit breeds.

Due to decades of selective breeding, our Netherland Dwarf bunnies have  amazingly calm temperaments and have made the ideal pets for many people across the country and even overseas.

Here in the Dallas-Fort Worth area where raising larger livestock may be impossible, many students have found our Netherland Dwarfs to be outstanding project animals for 4-H and FFA.

The youngest, Cameron is beginning his 11th year of raising Netherlands and has been completely in charge of day-to- day care for The Dunham Farm Rabbitry.

Congrats to Cameron!
