So you want a pet bun, huh? Well, rabbits are just so darn adorable, so we’re not surprised. However, like with other pets, getting one that suits your personality and lifestyle boosts the chances that it will be smooth sailing for you and your fur baby most of the time.

See which of these cute and cuddly breeds will be the best match for you and your family:

Mini Rex

Calm, gentle and friendly, that’s what a Mini Rex bun is. Their easy-going personality makes them easy to care for, even for beginners. They also do well with kids, but some may object to being picked up too often.

Flemish Giant

Flemish Giants do very well with kids. Due to their pleasant demeanor, they are a favorite among children everywhere.

Their lovely disposition is one of the reasons Flemish Giants have become increasingly popular as pets and why we consider them one of the best breeds of rabbits for first-time owners.

Energetic and friendly, this rabbit breed is easy to bond with, especially for those who are looking for an active companion.

Lionhead Rabbit

Lionheads are itty-bitty beauties. They’re a dwarf breed that weighs an ultra-light 1-1.5 kilograms fully grown.

New Zealand Rabbit

Pet parents call them the Golden Retrievers of pet rabbits, which means that these buns are the perfect choice for first-time pet owners. They’re not only super friendly, but they also tend to stay calm and docile in most situations.

Holland Lop

Add to their irresistible appearance is the fact that Holland Lops are intelligent, friendly, curious, and energetic bundles of fur.

Netherland Dwarf

These buns are probably the smallest in our list as they weigh only between 1.1–2.5 pounds. They look like baby rabbits even when they’re adults, which makes them simply adorable.

Dutch Rabbit

Dutch Rabbit because this bun type has most of the traits first-time pet parents love. They’re a medium-sized breed, meaning they’re not too small or too large. They’re friendly, and they can thrive both indoors and outdoors.
