How old do Netherland Dwarf bunnies live to be?

Best Answers

Supposedly shorter than average compared to other breeds, although some sites say 7-10 years (10 years is about average for most rabbits). Your rabbit will live longer if you spay or neuter it, and if you research what it needs to stay healthy (lots of hay, space to move around, good veggies and not too many treats). read more

If you keep your rabbit in the home, it can live for many years. My Netherland dwarf Spike was 9 when I lost him. He was frail and elderly, and had a bit of trouble getting around (rabbits do get arthritis), but he had a good quality of life up until the end. If your rabbit is outside in a hutch its life expectancy will be shorter. read more
