DUTCH RABBIT BREED

Dutch Rabbits

The Dutch rabbit rarely weighs more than five pounds. One of the oldest breeds, said to have originated from Holland. Colors: black, blue, torte, and Chocolates. Yellow is not recognized ARBA (American Rabbit Breeders Association).

The "Dutch" markings should remind you of a child wearing a white mask over the nose, white boots, and a shirt with the chest, forelegs white. The "official" description would be: white markings clear and distinct; chest, forelegs, blaze (white covering the nose and whisker beads and the color continues along the jaw line) and footstops to be white.

Although ALL rabbits can be eaten, the Dutch is not considered a meat rabbit, but a show rabbit. As with all rabbits who are treated with love, kindness and gentleness, the Dutch makes a good pet also.
