Swiss Fox

History

To no surprise, this breed was developed in Switzerland by a Mr Muller. The swiss fox is the result of breeding a Havana and Angora rabbit to produce a rabbit that resembled a fox, as in the 1920s (when the breed was developed) fox fur was all the rage. Unfortunately Mr Muller failed to produce a rabbit with a pelt that was similar to a fox. This breed was recognized as ‘Schweizer Fuchskaninchen’ in 1925. Throughout the second world war this breed was wiped out in Germany but still remained in Switzerland. Today this is a rare breed, however they do occasionally pop up in shows across Europe.

Swiss fox rabbits have muscular bodies and weigh between 2.5 and 4kg.
