There are a few mixed-breed rabbits available, but even these rabbits will probably have fairly recognizable ancestry. Most of the breeds were originally developed for one of four purposes—meat, pelt, wool, or fancy (show), but any of them can make a good pet. I don’t think there is a single breed of rabbit about which someone has not claimed it makes the absolute best pet for one reason or another! Given that any breed of rabbit can make a good pet, two factors to take into consideration are the size of the rabbit and the amount of care it requires. While larger rabbits may make affectionate, laid-back pets.
