The Dwarf Lop is a very popular pet and exhibition rabbit. Produced from the French Lop, the Dwarf lop first appeared in Holland in the 1950s and is known as the Holland Lop in America. The breed was recognised by the British Rabbit Council in 1976. Dwarf lops have a cobby well-muscled appearance and weigh 2.04kg (4lb 8oz). They have broad lop ears that are carried close to the head to give a horseshoe like appearance. Their coat is dense and quite long.
As with any rabbit the Dwarf lop can make a good pet if it is handled well, offered companionship and provided with sufficient space to have regular exercise.
