Whilst they have relatively long fur, some owners report that Angora rabbits shed the least. This could be because this type of rabbit has been bred (controversially) for its hair, and the more it sheds the less there is for its keepers to remove from it when they come to collect it.
Unfortunately, there are no hypoallergenic rabbits – but some are apparently easier on allergy sufferers than others
Although this breed may shed a little less than some others, they need more regular brushing, as their hair is extremely long and prone to matting. If you are looking for the best breed for an allergy sufferer, many owners have had success with Rex rabbits instead.
If you, or a member of your household suffers from rabbit allergies, then there are precautions you can take to minimise the impact on the sufferer. Unfortunately, no rabbit is hypoallergenic, but there are certain rabbit-keeping practises that will keep exposure to allergens at a minimum. Contrary to what most people believe, it is not a rabbit’s hair that causes the problem: rather, it is the things that cling to the rabbit’s hair that stir up the reaction; specific proteins from your rabbits that cause an immune response in humans.
