Mini Plush Lop Pricing Information
Ellie's Rabbitry is home to the original Mini Plush Lop. Mini Plush lops are a rare specialty breed with fur instead of hair that sheds less! Mini Plush Lops are a very good option for those who tend to be allergic to animals. There are only 2 qualified Mini Plush Lop breeders in the United States that carry undiluted pure lines from Devi D'Aniballe's original Mini Plush Lop herd. True Mini Plush Lops are more expensive than most rabbits, but their personalities, velvet fur and overall quality is second to none. With a life expectancy of around 12 years, purchasing a Mini Plush Lop is simply adding another member to your family.
Prices vary depending on each individual Mini Plush Lop rabbit. Some are born with more unique colors and traits. Some have higher fur quality and a more desirable body type which also plays role in determining a Mini Plush Lops price. Sizes also vary, the smaller the bunny the more expensive.
Mini Plush Lops average price range is between $300-375. Occasionally, there are higher priced rabbits of exceptional quality or have unique traits like blue eyes or rare colors. The $100 deposit goes towards the final price of your bunny, it is NOT an extra charge! Rabbit prices are determined at 1 month of age.
Every litter is different and it is very difficult to determine quality, size and color before one month of age. I may advertise litters to be in a certain price range but it is always subject to change after seeing how kits mature. I can only estimate what a litters cost will be based off previous litters born to a particular pairing of rabbits.
Occasionally I have pricing specials posted on my Facebook page. If I have discounted rabbits for any reason they are offered for sale via Facebook, they are not offered to everyone on the waiting list, as this would take days and lots of work to reach out to every person in the order of the list. So, follow Ellie’s Rabbitry on Facebook for special offers!
As a breeder I strive to produce Mini Plush Lops that are the epitome of their breed standard, however, I cannot guarantee a Mini Plush Lops ears will drop. About 95% of the time they drop at about 2 to 3 months of age. On rare occasions they take longer and on even rarer occasions they do not completely fall due to a tight crown or narrow space between the ears. Unfortunately there is no way for me to tell ahead of time if a bunnies ears will fall. If I strongly suspect a Mini Plush Lops ears wont fall, their price will be discounted. If I suspect a Mini Plush Lops ears will fall and they end up not falling by a year of age, customers will not be refunded the difference if I were to have suspected that they wouldn't fall by a month of age.
Mini Plush Lops are a very small breed of rabbit. Sometimes one will grow larger than expected, this can be due to a few reasons including being over fed or lack of exercise. I will not refund an animal if it exceeds these weight expectations only because I do not know how they are fed or how active they are.
Mini Plush Lops coat quality varies and it is impossible to know what their coat will truly be like before they have their first molt. I cannot guarantee fur quality, only predict it.
All Mini Plush Lops come with a spay/neuter contract meaning all prices are considered pet pricing. Below is a copy of the spay/neuter contract that must be signed upon pick up:
