A Netherland dwarf rabbit lives an average of seven years, according to Pet Planet. They do not make good pets for children because of their known bad temperament.
The Netherland dwarf rabbit originated in Holland and is a short-haired rabbit that is very intelligent, according to Pet Planet. The rabbit can be litter trained, and it also can learn to respond to its name. Netherland dwarf rabbits come in a variety of colors, including white, blue, black, smoke pearl, Siamese sable, opal, tan, seal point and chinchilla. These types of rabbits generally sleep through the day and are most active during the evenings and early mornings.
