All About The Britannia Petite Rabbit PLR


Aside from being one of the cutest rabbits among the fancy breeds available, the Britannia Petite is also one of the oldest rabbit breeds from the domesticated band. They are also one of the smallest breeds and have been nicknamed “The Elite of the Fancy”. However, with their size being set apart, they have a unique yet interesting personality and may not be perfect for every family. They can be stubborn and hard to train but if you happen to go for a Britannia Petite, just know you will have a full package to deal with for that size. So, where exactly did the Britannia Petite originate from?

Many researchers have dug deep and hard to find the true history of this rabbit breed but have only been served with mystery and history lost in time. Even though it is regarded as one of the oldest breeds, no one knows where it originated from. There is a strong possibility this breed was bred from a combination of small wild rabbits, thus, them growing with a curved spine and tucked up abdomen. Its wild temperament matched with its unique physique could give some advantage to the theory of how people believe they were bred. 

This rabbit breed was originally called the Polish in his native country Britain but after being accepted by the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA), its name was changed to Britannia Petite. This name change came as a result of another breed bearing the name Polish. To date, the breed goes by both names but in the UK, they are still referred to as the Polish.
