Jersey Wooly
Facts & Advice

A perfect first pet for children, this breed loves to play and cuddle

The Jersey Wooly Rabbit is gentle and cuddly, and makes a great pet for children because it’s not known to kick or bite. The breed was created by crossing a French Angora with a Netherland Dwarf, resulting in an extra-small rabbit with a luxuriously soft, woolly coat.

Life span: 7-10 years.
Temperament: Playful and even-tempered, Jersey Woolys love cuddles and lots of attention, and will always enjoy snuggling on a lap.
