The exact origin of the Polish rabbit is unknown, despite the common misconception that it is linked to the English white hutch rabbit. However, what we do know is that it was first exhibited in the UK in 1884, where breeder selectively breed the more active and upright looking rabbits.
The Polish rabbit is a small breed mostly kept as pets, with short ears that are rarely separated. It’s often confused with the Netherland Dwarf, but the Polish is a little larger with a more rounded head. In the US, the Polish rabbit is often used as a fancy exhibition breed as well as pets, and should weigh between 2 ½ and 3 ½ pounds (1.1kg and 1.6kg).
These small rabbits are perfect house pets as they don’t need a lot of space to roam. A comfortable sized cage will keep a Polish rabbit happy.
In general, Polish rabbits are calm and friendly. They are intelligent rabbits who can be litter trained in the house. The bucks are calmer, but does tend to be more friendly when spayed.
In the UK, the National Polish Rabbit Club (NPRC) recognises all colour varieties of the Polish rabbit, so long as it is accepted by another breed in its standard. The American Rabbit Breeders’ Association accepts the white with red or blue eyes, the ruby eyed white (true albino), black, chocolate, blue and broken.
