Choosing a Rabbit Breed?

Need Help Finding the Perfect Rabbit Breed for You?

If you are new to rabbits the rabbit breeds alphabetical list will probably not be much use to you. The rabbit breed names will be a list of unfamiliar, strange sounding woolly lion, Himalayan dwarf thingummies, that may confuse and mystify, rather than enlighten and enrich.

As a newbie, the main question you will probably be asking yourself is, "Which is the best rabbit breed for me?".

With so much choice available in the rabbit breeds list, and the many considerations to note about your needs, and the needs of your family, you will have a hard decision making process ahead.

You may even be part of a family that is yet to be convinced of the benefits of raising rabbits, in which case lots of research and tools to help you decide, or persuade, are vital to your quest.

So it's a good thing Just Rabbits has the perfect answer for you!

Rabbit Breeds List

The Most Comprehensive Rabbit Breeds List Ever?

If you are familiar with rabbits, you have probably heard of most of the names in the comprehensive index below. I am adding detailed pages of each rabbit breed as my time permits and many of these fascinating breeds have lead me on a journey of intrigue and wonder. But it's the uncommon breeds that have really surprised me.

The irony of the rabbit fur industry collapse has made many rabbit breeds very rare. Some breeds have come about completely by accident, or even as a genetic mistake. Some breeds are new to the world of show, as breeders perfect the best genetic combinations, creating new standards for  associations and councils to include at exhibition.

I have spent many hours researching for this list and a much more detailed breakdown can be found in my newly published book, 'How Long Do Rabbits Live'.

Have I Missed Something!?

The amount of different breeds worldwide, makes for a very difficult and long list indeed. This is because so many of the breeds have several 'varieties' that are also recognized as breeds in themselves.

In my research through many reference books, specialist articles and web pages I noticed that some lists included most rabbit breeds but then omitted others.

I have compiled the list above by joining the information together for a more comprehensive outline. Of course I could be missing one or two, so please let me know if there's a rabbit breed I have not included and I will add it to the chart!
