which breed of rabbit do you least like?

you dont have to give a reason but you get extra points if you do.


and what type of pet would you never own?

and you have to give a reason for this one...... :lol:

I dont think theres a breed of rabbit i like least, i used to not like french lops because they just looked moody with me, but i've grown out of that lol

And I'd never own a terantula because i HATE spiders!

lionheads...and nethies.........i think its those buldging eyes and that 'i've run repetedly into a wall' look which appears to go down so well on the show bench..:oops:

cats. i would never own a cat particularly since one attacked Joey. :evil:

I love all bunnies, they are all beautiful to me!

I have to confess, I'm not a great cat lover, I like cats but they annoy me, I don't know why!

I hate rats and snakes, so wouldn't have any of those!

Initially I wasn't so bothered about dutch bunnies, cos in my pre-bunny days, I just thought all bunny owners had one of these!! However, now they're are my 3rd favourite (after lionhead, & dwarf lop!). i would like to have a dutch bun one day.

I wouldn't own a cat. I'm quite seriously allergic - If I touch one my hands swell up & I can't breathe!!

I have to admit I'm not too keen on lionheads, but a few have caught my fancy (would bun-nap a few belonging to members!). Though I do like lion lops.
I'd never own spiders - eww. And I'd struggle to own reptiles - couldn't feed them frozen animals (would never feed live either!) and I have a phobia of crickets/locusts so no good with the smaller reptiles either! I'd love a long-tailed lizard though, I had one when I was living with my dad(his gf would feed them..when she remembered :roll: ) and he was so cute, he'd lay on my hand while I was on the computer

I'm not a huge fan of lionheads or *ducks below parapet* rexes. It's not that I dislike them or would ever turn one down in need of a home, but in terms of just personal preference, neither of them particularly make me want to rush up and cuddle them...unlike nethies :lol:

I don't think I'd ever have a dog, I hate doggy smell and the fact that they are so needy.

I'm unsure of cats, you never quite know where you are with them. When I worked in a vet, I was never afraid of the massive rotties or doberman's, but it was the cats that scared me silly :oops:
Bunnies are all gorgeous, but I have a thing for the little 'uns, especially nethies, they are just so cute and dinky!

id never own reptiles of any kind.

Its not a breed I don't like but a colour - white with red eyes. It's not that I don't like them its just on a scale of cuteness they come way down the bottom.

I would never have fish as a pet - after a rather traumatic week of looking after a friends tropical fish I am scared for life!! The water pump broke AND they had some fishy virus so the fish actually went rotted within two days. The smell was horrific. And oh god, cleaning the tank out before my friend got back was just horrific. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :( :( :( :(

I never liked rexes (too 'lumpy and bumpy' for me) but now I've got a minirex I find myself coming around to regular ones too. Actually I wasn't keen on dutches either but don't mind them too much either.

I like all bunnies, but I wouldn't necessarily go and get a Dutch or a Netherland Dwarf. No particular reason, just prefer other breeds more! Saying that, if one needed me urgently, there would also be room for one too.

Personally I wouldn't really keep reptiles as pets as 99% of people can't offer them the right conditions. I don't think they are "good" pet "material"... (although I don't have a problem with them as such, I like snakes, lizards and things - just prefer seeing them in their natural habitat).

Unfortunately I don't really like giant breeds. Only because when I was little I had a dream that a massive rabbit chased me across a field and tried to kill me! :shock: since then they have seemed scary :lol:

I would never have a reptile, they seem so sad in their tanks and never seem to do much :oops:

I'm not a huge fan of lionheads or *ducks below parapet* rexes.

I'm joining you with the rexes. I just don't find them quite so adorable - 'Elegant' is the best adjective I can find. :( Lops just make my heart melt although I thought I wasn't keen on bigger rabbits until I fostered Coffee .....

My boyfriend isn't keen on dutches or netherland dwarfs (despite the fact that our beautiful Wokky was a nethie x!!)


I'd never own any kind of reptile or any rodent with a tail (they give me the creeps - big time). I'll probably never own a cat either because my boyfriend doesn't like them :( :(

Fairy Angel
10-05-2006, 06:09 AM
I'm not a big fan of rexes, but that's probably because I've never seen one in the flesh.

I would never keep reptiles, I have a bit of a thing about snakes :oops: :lol:

I've never liked Netherland Dwarves, all the ones I've met have been little savages! That goes for Poles as well!
I adore lionheads! They're the soppiest so and so's around! I also love the giants.

I have to say this bravely :oops: never liked dutch rabbits :oops: :oops: just the pattern for some reason :oops: sorry :oops:

I've had most animals as pets some time - snakes, spiders, rats, mice, gerbils, hamsters, dogs, cats, horses, slow worms, fish...even had a pet earwig when I was 8, which I fed on cake :shock:

children make the worst pets though - noisy, smelly, expensive and very hard to train :roll: :lol:

I would've agreed with you on this til I met Alex (formerly Alice). He's a New Zealand White & I'm a convert :love:

As for Rexes - I had one before I knew what one was! I would say they are more "beautiful" than cute.

I'm not sure if I would say no to any animal, although I had a horrific experience with a stick insect once and snails really don't appeal! :lol:

My least fave would have to be Lop eared buns (who threw that hay cake at me :shock: :lol: ) only because I love buns with uppy ears!

erm... how can anyone dislike any bunster? :shock: although a few years ago I wasn't sure about lops, then a very sweet little disabled bun called Freeda joined me for a short while. She was adorable :D I also have my big French lop, Storm, who is very handsome, his ears do make me laugh sometimes when he's running around and they are flapping around everywhere :lol: I think the personality is more important than how they look :wink:
I've never chosen any of my pets, I was in the right place at the right time. I don't think I would turn away any animal but wouldn't feel comfortable with those bigger reptiles which eat live animals :shock: if one was left on my doorstep he would have to live in the downstairs loo untill someone else could take him!. No way could I feed an animal other animals!! :shock: :shock:

I don't really like Belgian hares. Their body shape is too out of proportion, although I do love other arched breeds like tans.

I wouldn't want any pet with long hair. Rabbits, cats, dogs... give me shorthairs! I'm not real keen on dogs in general, although my husband wants a pug. Those are fine. I hate yappy dogs and I'm afraid of most large dogs, especially if they jump on me or try to lick my face.

Veronica
10-05-2006, 11:38 AM
I'm trying to think of a breed I dislike...and I honestly can't!

I do have quite a variety living here, so maybe that shows how I love every bun:D
(nethies, dwarf lops, frenchie, lionhead, tan, and cross's) :D

AprilShower
10-05-2006, 11:46 AM
I think every bunny is beautiful so I couldn't say which I like least or which I like most.

Now, I would not like to keep a snake. It bothers me that people feed hamsters to them. :cry:

raven_guest
10-05-2006, 12:00 PM
Whoever said they don't like rexes, give one a stroke and you'll be converted, their fur is wonderful!

As for ducthes, I was never keen myself, mainly because that's what seems to be filling up petshops and they never seemed 'special' as they were so common.

Red eyed whites scare me! Sooooooo wrong!

Belgian hares are one I'd like in the future but apparently they're very headstrong and feisty!

Nethies don't do it for me, I'm afraid! I also agree about white with red eyes - think they're a little bit scary!
Other animals; small dogs like terriers- rat dogs (sorry!) - and anything with a silly haircut or bald (through breed, not illness!!).

I'm a bit wary of giant rabbits, they look quite scary in pictures but i'm sure if i met one in real life i'd love it! I do love all other bunnies of every breed and colour.

Pets i wouldn't have are spiders, reptiles, insects, not birds because they are quite noisy or rats because they look scary :oops:

10-05-2006, 03:27 PM
well it is my thread so now it is my turn

i must say it took me time to find a nether dwarf i liked but then i found one so i supose i like them all :lol: i am drawn to shiny black bunnies and lion heads. but then i have lops and up ears, dutch, dwarf yes i love them all.



but i absolutely hate rats......having been raised on a farm i am soooo sorry i could never have a rat as a pet. but being an animal lover i would save a pet rat if need be, but only till it got a new home. sorry to all the ratty lovers but we are what we are. :(

Hiya, well I adore all types of bunnies without exception, but if I was choosing one as a pet I would probably not choose a Lop.
We have Lops here in the Sanctuary and I love them to bits, but I just prefer bunnies to have upright ears.
I would never turn a bunny in need away because of its breed or physical appearance :wink:
Best wishes

I love all rabbits and would never judge one or choose one on it's breed but.. :oops: I've got to say my least favourite bunnies are nethies. :oops: I still think they are great and obviously very popular but they just have a strange look about them with their little ears and big heads. :? I also think English lops look strange with their long ears (dooo your ears hang low do they wobble to and fro.. :lol: ).

I love all animals but my least favourite is the spider. They scare me!

Sue&Sooty
10-05-2006, 06:15 PM
I don't 'dislike' any rabbit breeds but I do have preferences, that why I gave the answer I gave. :wink: However those preferences would never stop me caring for a lop if it needed help.

10-05-2006, 06:37 PM
love all breeds of buns :love: but if i had to have a least favourite it would be the Himalayan . dont like the markings and their eyes seem to stare . :(

wouldnt have small squirmy snakes as pet ... :? yuk ...any thing small and slithery is a no no . :mrgreen: dont mind big snakes though .

Lops make me sad. Rabbits ears are supposed to stand up, but people have bred them to lie down so they look sweet, but they can no longer hear as well or see behind them, plus in a fight their ears tend to get shredded.

I would never hold it against a rabbit that they are a lop, but rabbits ought to have uppy ears.

Inimical Me
10-05-2006, 07:31 PM
My least favourite breed of rabbit used to be Dutch... but I really like them now! I'm not a huge fan of their markings but they have such sweet little faces and little pink noses, awww! They're so pretty!

I can't believe how many people's least favourite breed are rexes! They are so beautiful and elegant!

Anyway, yeah, I love all breeds, they're all gorgeous in their own different ways. And cross breeds, love them all.

I don't think anyone actually dislikes a particular breed, as Deborah asked, which breed do you like the least?

I don't dislike dutches and I'd certainly have one a friend for Crunchie when we go to find her a friend soon if thats who she chooses.

I was just saying that I'm not a fan because of their markings, I find them the least cute.
I didn't intend to cause any offence, I was simply answering Deborahs question :)

I can't think of a breed I don't like...
I used not to like the look of dewlaps but now I have Bella who has a lovely dewlap and looks extra cuddly and sweet because of it.
She looks nice and matronly.

I'd never own anything bug like.
...Actually I have done, I had a pet caterpillar for a couple of weeks a couple of years ago. I found him in a sugar snap pea pod and named him Barney.
That was very out of character for me though, I was a mixture of fascinated and repulsed all at the same time.

10-05-2006, 09:27 PM
Aww rex rabbits fur is sooo gorgous! Feels like velvet.

Least fav bun has to be longhaired, like lionhaired, angora, only because I'm not fond of all the grooming :lol: and English lops, coz of their large ears, it's not right.
Normal lops are fine as they're like floppy ears in dogs.

I'd never have reptiles, 1. because I don't beleive I could provide a good enough enviroment for them and 2. I could never feed them pinkies :(

I love Dutch because of they're cheeky nature, they just look like they're always thinking of ways to get up to mischief. I didn't used to like pink eyed rabbits, either, but I love pink eyed rats so I like them now lol

My least favuorites are also dutches and rexes, though orange dutches i really like and the brindly coloured ones, they seem different somehow. I find in general their faces look quite gaunt and sickly, perhaps because of their longer noses.

I also have to admit that I really dont like the look of continental giants. Their eyes just seem to be far too small for the size of their heads and they look a bit freaky.

Got a rex coming very soon I can't wait :D

I own reptiles, snakes, geckos, have had frogs, got bunnies, guinea's mice and dogs and I don't find anything repulsive now I have got into reps, people don't give them a go before they write them off as ugly or squirmy lol

and RE: the replies about reptiles, not all feed on hamsters and mice, some eat mealworms some eat lots of veg and crickets, they are all different, crested geckos don't even have to have livefood in their diet they can be kept purely on fruit puree mixes so don't let livefood put you off :D

There is one breed I really don't like and would never choose to own one, although if I had to take one in an emergency obviously I would and that is the Polish (Pure bred)

I was attacked by a black one at a show once, I was holding him on the table, it was only after he had savaged my hand that the owner thought to tell me he was aggressive :x :evil: :x

After being attacked by him it made me a bit wary of Nethies but a little black one at the rescue soon won me over :love:

My faves have to be Blacks, Sooty Fawns, Black Otter, Blue Otter, Black and Orange Harlequins, Blue and Orange Harlequins and Red Eyed Whites

Although I adore every bun regardless of age, colour, sex or temprement :love:

I don't really have a dislike to any breed of bunny. Everyone is different, and its more the characters i fall in love with!!

Every animal i have ever owned has found its way into my heart through fate. Bindi was supposed to live (her mother didn't kill her for a reason), Maya was in need of some real loving and choose me!!

If i were to choose any animal that i wouldn't like as a pet, i would probably choose...cockatoos. We have four at work at the moment and i can't stand the noise they make when they go off on one. Although saying that if i won the lottery i would rehome one i work with in a flash!!
