HOLLAND LOPS are a breed of rabbit originating in the Netherlands. The breed was recognized by the Netherland's Governing Rabbit Council in 1964 and the ARBA in 1979. They are popular house pets, known for their sweet temperament and nonaggressive behavior. This breed marked its beginnings when Dutch rabbit breeder Adriann de Cock sought to combine the best qualities from two rabbit breeds, the French Lop (known for being large & having floppy ears) and theNetherland Dwarf, into a new breed. The Holland Lop is very popular and well-liked by many rabbit enthusiasts, pet owners and breeders, because of its compact size and attractiveness. It ties as the smallest breed of the lop-eared rabbits with the American Fuzzy Lop with an ideal weight of 3.5 lb (1.6 kg) for showing in ARBA sanctioned shows. Their stocky, muscular-appearing body, is characterized by broad shoulders, deep chests, and short thick legs. The most common colors attributed to Holland Lops are white, Broken Black and black, as well as a shade similar to a tortoise shell. The Holland Lop shares a color guide in the ARBA Standards consisting of well over twenty colors with the fuzzy lop.

The origin of the Holland Lop marked its beginnings when Dutch rabbit breeder Adriann de Cock sought to combine the best qualities from two rabbit breeds, the French Lop (known for being large and having floppy skin) and the Netherland Dwarf, into a new breed. Aleck Brooks, founder of the Holland Lop Rabbit Specialty Club brought the breed to the United States in 1976 where they were subsequently recognized by the American Rabbit Breeders' Association in 1979.
