Dating back to their introduction from wild rabbits in the 11th century, today there are over 200 breeds of rabbits worldwide. Rabbits are easily tamed and responsive to the children who care for them. A rabbit raised from a baby will attach themselves to you and may follow you around like a puppy. You may even be able to train it to walk on a leash! When buying a rabbit for a child, choose a size that the child can handle. Adult rabbits do not typically get along with each other, so unless you're intending on breeding, it's best to get a single rabbit.
