I have a netherland dwarf, too! I believe she is a himalayan. I also have two other bunnies. Those two are just cute spotted buns!
All three of our bunnies are from the local SPCA.

Where did you get your blue Netherland dwarf? I LOVE the color and size. How big will it get? Just curious. I'm new to buns and one is plenty for me right now, but who knows about down the road...

My boyfriend got Zeus for me. We had been planning to get a bunny anyways, then he found Zeus at a pet store two days before I came over and couldn't pass him up!

If you want to get a bun, I really recomend looking in a shelter! I would have gotten my bunny from a shelter but we both just fell in love with Zeus. Where do you live? If you want I could give you some shelter recomendations that are in your area - I've seen some very cute neitherland dwarfs in shelters before!

I'm not exactly sure how big they usually are - small! Zeus is full grown and I posted some pictures of him in another post, so that should give you a good idea how big they are. I think some might get a little bigger then he is, but not by much.

He's really a joy! If you ever decide to get a dwarf, be prepared - these little buns have big personalities! Zeus is usually very hyper.

Welcome Michelle!! Zeus is very cute. I love the blue coloring also. We raise Netherland Dwarf rabbits. They are supposed to stay 2 1/2 pounds or under, but many pet type dwarfs outgrow that to around 3 pounds. They are a lot of fun, but they do have plenty of energy and are not usually as laid back as some other breeds. Have fun!

It seems I have a HUGE netherland dwarf - she is 2 and 3/4 pounds! She is such a sweetie. So cute and tiny. I found her at the SPCA. She was there for at least 6 weeks.
Wait until the end of summer and there will be lots of bunnies at the shelters. They are usually a lot less expensive than a breeder. My bunnies were only 5 dollars a piece. They may not be tiny any longer but that is not a bad thing. Believe me young bunnies can be a handful!
