Hulstlander Rabbits, also commonly known as “Hussies,” originated in the Netherlands, named after the district of Hulstlander where they originated. The breed’s creator, J de Graaf, wanted to create a breed of rabbit that was pure white with blue eyes, and in the late 1970s, the Hulstlander was born. The breed was developed by crossing the blue-eyed Netherland Dwarf rabbit with a White Vienna.
Hulstlander Rabbits are friendly, outgoing, and playful. They are easy to train and have a reputation for being able to learn tricks and even how to use a litter box. Some are also known to respond to their names when called. They are clean animals that are easy to care for, are quiet, and have few housing needs, making them a popular breed in both the United States and abroad.
