Breeder gave me a updated photo of my new velveteen!
Anybody have advice on the breed, or any special quirks a velveteen might have?
We are so excited for Mushoo to come home

Yes, I hear they are a mix between english lop and rex, Rex hair, Lop personality and 5 pounds.

I'm not too sure but judging on the mix, you'll probably get the best of both worlds, great looks and great personality!!

Way to go she is gorgeous :)

She will be home in 2 weeks =]

E-lops tend to have "doggy bun" personalities...very mellow. I have rexes and they are very active and inquisitive. I would guess this rabbit to be somewhere in between. I have always wanted a velveteen lop!

I read somewhere on RO, that someone else who had a velveteen, that it was more standoff ish and not as friendly as lops tend to be. I think sometimes, like with designer dogs, it takes a while to work out the "kinks" my guess is, designer bunnies are probably the same way...I wish you the best! I hope and pray your new bunny has the best of both breeds!

Yes mocha i heard they are a new breed started in the 90's i believe
I hope she will be the best too! We got a note from the breeder her ears are already 12 inches long, wow... I think that means tip to tip both ears.

I have 3 rabbits from ann and they have the best personality's !

Mooshoo The velveteen is crazy! She does nothing but binky and is so happy. She's still getting used to everything but is fitting in well. The thing that surprised me most is that she can climb! ? !
She braces herself against the chicken hutch and the brick and Spiderman climbs up the wall to get on top of the hutch!
