Lusters Lops©️ is the 1st and only registered Mini Plush Lop Breeder in MA, RI, VT, ME, NH and CT* (in Ct we were 2nd). We also breed Holland Lops and Mini Lops. When searching for a bunny you can go to the ARBA website and look under “member services” and click on “find a breeder”. We serve Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, Vermont, New York, New Hampshire and RI. If you are located in another state there are bunny transportation companies. Our history with breeding MPLs began nine years ago with our original Mini Plush Lop herd (which comes straight from the original Devie D’Annaballe bunnies). Since Plush Lops are a recognized, competitive breed in Europe, we flew to England in January, 2022 to watch their show, meet with breeders and study international MPLs. After seeing the differences in quality and type, we decided to import and breed imported plushies. The original imports were standard size (4-6 pounds) which was a bit too big to call “mini”. So, in October 2022 we imported another pair who are tiny (2.7 and 3.3 pound import MPLs!). We now sell our American and Imported mini plush lops whose parents are from Christine Toyer (Malvina Lake Plush Lops in Luxembourg) and Greetje Abbink-Burgers’ (Netherlands) mini plush lops (widely recognized as two of the world’s leading plush breeders). As of 2020-2023 we are the only breeder in New England with original and import quality (we also have clean lines and VMVC lines). (Note - Some of the bunnies are housed at our partners rabbitry in Ct.) If you want to see daily videos of the babies just go to Facebook and look at the “Lusters Lops” page. Lusters Lops also breeds Mini Lops and Holland Lops. We specialize in modified free-roam, litter-trained bunnies held from Day One. If you are looking to buy and/or adopt a bunny in Massachusetts (or anywhere in the USA), you’ve found the right place. We have a strong focus on Emotional Support Animals🐰💜 WATCH OUT *** for scam artists- Unfortunately there are some breeders claiming they breed Mini Plush Lops but they are just Rexes crossed to Hollands. The ears won’t drop and they won’t be hypoallergenic. Check to make sure the breeder is ARBA and/or USDA certified, don’t rely on photos of the baby rabbits - ask to see videos. Check the ARBA website to ensure breeder and rabbitry validity. Check the MPL breeder registry tab on this website (coming soon). You can also request to see a dam, a sire or past litters to verify the breeders experience. (When looking at the parents check to make sure their ears are fully lopped). (There are many other telltale signs of a true mini plush lop so we are happy to review pictures for you.) If you need any help locating another true MPL breeder anywhere in the world ww will gladly point you in the right direction. There are only about 16-18 true MPL breeders in the USA. There is a “Mini Plush Lop USA” Directory that lists all of the true MPL breeders in the United States so, no matter where you are we can point you to a true, honest MPL breeder. (We don’t even care if you don’t adopt a bunny from us, we are happy to help anyone worldwide find a true MPL because we don’t want to see any more families scammed.)🐰💜 (Lusters Lops©️ is copyright protected.)

Our Mini Plush Lop Story
What Motivates Us
When we were setting up our herd we noticed that there was a really big difference between the bunnies that came from breeders who hand raise and expose the buns to dogs and children versus the bunnies that came from rabbitries where they had no interaction with pets and children. We couldn’t find any rabbitries that didn’t use cages. (We are not judging breeders who use cages.). We have responsible friends who are farmers who have hundreds of rabbits and we completely agree that cages are acceptable and safe for breeding). However, we wanted to be a different kind of rabbitry - we wanted to experiment with being the only local rabbitry that didn’t use cages. We did a lot of research and we were able to find other small rabbitries in the United States in which the breeders allowed the animals to free roam, indoors uncaged (except for quarantine). Our goal was to provide a bunny that was very comfortable in the home setting and was familiar with pets, children and loud noises and being snuggled. We choose the healthiest, gentlest babies to stay here and become future breeders. This free-roam method takes a lot more effort and in part we failed. Rabbits who aren’t fixed are territorial and so now we have a modified free-roam rabbitry. We have to charge more because we put so much effort and time into our bunnies and we only do 4 breeding cycles per year. It’s a full-time job 6-8 hrs per day, seven days a week). Also, many people have allergies to pets. One of our children breaks out into rashes when he comes into contact with certain types of fur - that is part of the reason that we were motivated to raise mini plush lops. They are mostly hypoallergenic and they don’t shed, they molt twice a year! As the first and only Mini Plush Lop Breeder in MA, RI, VT, ME and NH, it is really vital to us that we protect and maintain the standards of the breed. With help from international breeders we have written a breed standard. In an effort to be fully transparent, we do own 12 cages - they are necessary for quarantine (and a host of other reasons) but, most of them are attached to pens. If you want to buy a rabbit in New England (Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut and New York) please email us at (LustersLops@gmail.com).
We also rescue and foster bunnies a couple times a year. If you prefer to adopt a bunny rabbit from a rescue group, we are happy to give you a list of local rescues. The rescue groups rarely have hypoallergenic rabbits and some families need a hypoallergenic rabbit which is the reason we breed them.
I was raising Mini Lops and Holland Lops in Florida around 2010, 2011….and I saw an ad on line for “Mini Plush Lops”….the ad mentioned that there were only 4 breeders in the US with true original Devie D’Annaballe plushies. At the price of $600 each it seemed rather expensive but, I was very intrigued. On the day that I was transferring the money to the breeder I learned that she had simply crossed a Rex and a Holland lop and called them “Mini Plush Lops”…….If you know anything about the breed, you know that it’s actually an unequal mix of 4 breeds which takes many generations to perfect. Needless to say I was extremely disappointed. At that point I tried to buy them from the real breeders but they all insisted on spay/neuter contracts- so, I temporarily stalled my efforts (I hoped I’d get them someday). One day the phone rang and one of the original breeders explained that she was ill and she’d agree to sell part of her herd. After flying them down to Florida (at an outrageous cost), I finally owned part of the original line. Those 3 bunnies were everything I had hoped for- sweet, gentle, gorgeous and hypoallergenic…..but, I had a new problem. My husband’s father (who lived in France) was ill and he needed our help. Back then passengers were allowed to travel with their pets in the cabin so, of course I brought my show mini lops and my plushies.
Over the course of the next five years I worked on their type, I wanted them to have consistent head size, crown width, ear length, weight and so on. I just kept the best kits and matched their features as I line bred. By 2019 unfortunately my Father-In-Law had passed on but we were ready to move back to the states and re-open our Rabbitry (along with my cousin). I had just transferred two of my favorite plushies when Covid hit. All of the rules changed and it became impossible to travel with my animals. Luckily, Billy was born in the US but he’s part of my line breeding program and he’s one of the bunnies who makes me feel so proud.. I’d advise anyone looking for a bunny to get a Mini Plush Lop. I’ve worked with five different breeds over the years and this is one of my favorite🐰💜👍🏻. If you choose to get a plushie from another MPL breeder, ask to see the dam or sire or a past litter, ask the weight, and do your research. Unfortunately there are breeders out there who will claim they have original MPLs but they’ve just mixed a Rex and a Holland lop…..that’s not a true Mini Plush Lop. As far as I know there are only approximately 14 breeders in the US who have true original Devie D’Annaballe Mini Plush Lops. As of 2021 and 2022 we are the first and only breeder in Massachusetts, RI, NH, VT and ME. Signed, Brie Voleil

Lusters Lops Rabbitry
How We Do Things
How It Works
Our Rabbitry is located in beautiful New England (Westwood, Massachusetts & New London, CT). Drop-off at either location is free of charge. We raise our rabbits indoors. If you adopt a kit (baby bunny) from us at 8 weeks old, the baby will be partially potty trained from watching the mom and dad using the litter box. Since they are young they may make mistakes but we will help you with your set-up to ensure success! We have a rescue dog who loves the bunnies so our babies are familiar with loud noises and big wet dog licks 🐶.
Each bunny is important to us since we put a lot of time and love into holding each of them from day one. So, we reserve the right to cancel the adoption if we find that you can’t or won’t provide a suitable environment for your bunny (deposit will be refunded). If you decide to adopt a bunny from Lusters Lops, you must read the Adoption Agreement. Once you have paid the non-refundable $100 deposit and reserved a bunny then you have agreed to the “Adoption Agreement”. The only case in which a deposit will be refunded is if your bunny becomes ill (thus far this has never happened). If you later decide to cancel the agreement due to life circumstances, we cannot refund the deposit because we have spent a lot of time with each Adopter and the bunny was removed from the market. Adopter may not switch bunnies once a bunny has been chosen. We accept PayPal (only if you click on “Friends and Family” option)…..or Venmo. It is very important to us that none of our bunnies end up in Rescue Centers or Humane Societies. For this reason, if at any time you want to surrender the animal and you can’t find a suitable family, please return the bunny to us - no questions asked (no refund will be issued and Adopter will pay for any shipping costs). All Lusters Lops bunnies are welcome to return to Lusters Lops at any point during his or her lifetime. If gender is important to you please let us know because it is very difficult to identify the gender of young kits and at best we are about 90% correct.
Once you choose a rabbit please let us know. We will email you a document called “Preparing for your Bunny” to make the transition easy. When your bunny is 8 weeks old you can either pick up the bunny in Westwood or Walpole, Massachusetts or we can deliver (free delivery to Canton, Norwood, Newton, Wellesley, Dedham and and Sturbridge, MA). All other deliveries are at $1.50 per mile. Remaining balance due on day of pickup.
PICKUP DAY. Finally…..Some families will have been on the waiting list for months so this will be a very exciting day💜. There is absolutely no need to buy a travel cab. With your adoption you will receive- 1) a cardboard travel box which can be used at your house as a “hidey hole” 2) a bag of transition pellets. 3) a bag of Timothy Hay 4) a random toy 5) Directions For Use 6) a bag of compressed Alfalfa Hay and 7) a Happy, Confident, Loving, Healthy Bunny🐰
As of March 31, 2023 we have 1 female baby blue mini plush lop “Ridley” and 1 one-year op Holland lop mommy “Ollie” available for reservation! If you see a bunny you like just email us to put down a deposit - LustersLops@gmail.com. Between March 30th and April 19th we are expecting 1 litter of multi colored Holland lops and 3 litters of mini plush lops! Those waitlists are open as of 3-28-23 but the lists are filling up quickly.
💜👍🏻 GREAT LUSTERS LOPS NEWS*****Its official!!!!! Some of Lusters Lops Mini Plush Lops have been chosen to be the 1st MPLs in Hawaii!!!!
Our bunnies are handled daily from day one. We raise our bunnies with children, our rescue dog and a lot of noise so that they will be easy to handle and well adjusted. We focus on quality and ESAs rather than quantity.
As soon as the bunnies are about two weeks old we will contact everyone in order of the list so that you may choose your bunny. Putting down a deposit means that you read the Adoption Agreement and agree. When the bunny is approximately 8-weeks old the Adopter will receive a toy, a cardboard travel box (which you can use as a temporary Hidey hole), transition food, care instructions, a bag of hay, a bag of Alfalfa cubes, and a happy, healthy (mostly potty trained) baby bunny. These breeds are in high demand and we currently have more demand than supply so, we apologize. Since we raise them in an open environment we are limited to 4 breeding cycles per year. If you see a bunny that you want to adopt on the “Available Bunnies” page please email (LustersLops@gmail.com) as soon as possible because they tend to be reserved very quickly. Some bunnies are raised and kept in Westwood, MA and some are housed at our partners rabbitry in New Britain, CT. We deliver free of charge to both places. These are pet prices only. For breeder contracts please email us at LustersLops@gmail.com.😊👍🏻ALL of Lusters Lops bunnies include a Happiness Guarantee……If for any reason you are unhappy, we will exchange the bunny for you*.

List Of Items Needed
Minimum Necessary List
Timothy Hay is very important. Pellets - boring looking is best. A water bowl or crock. A litter box- any type is fine. Litter- pine equine pellets are best (Tractor Supply Store)
Enclosure- xpen or whatever you want that will provide bunny some space but not too much until she is fully trained.
Hidey Hole- some sort of wooden or cardboard box/house - just somewhere for bunny to sleep and hide👍🏻
Willow balls as a toy, a foraging mat, grass mats, cat scratch houses - they are soooo cute.
Don’t buy it all at once- in the beginning you just need the necessary items and as you get to know your bunny you can add toys and other fun items. We will email you a document called “Preparing For Your Bunny”. Oxbow is safe in general - scented items are dangerous.💕💜🐰
Items We Will Provide:
A bag of hay and a bag of pellets so you can transition smoothly, a cardboard travel box which turns into a Hidey Hole, a toy, a coop cup for pellets, a bag of compressed alfalfa hay, and of course, a healthy, happy bunny(s) 🐰💜👍🏻.
ESA click here
Lusters Lops© is the first and only rabbit breeder in the United States to develop and copyright a 10-part ESA Bunny Test*. All tests, materials and published finishings are copyrighted and owned wholly by Lusters Lops, Inc. Written permission is needed to reproduce these materials and statistical findings.* In tandem with a licensed psychologist who prefers to be our ”silent partner”.👍🏻
One of the owners suffered from depression and anxiety for many years. Now she doesn’t need anti-depressants and she thanks the rabbits for that (and some great therapists). We completely understand the importance of getting the right ESA. Please tell us which mental I’ll eases are affecting your life. We are very confidential and bound by HIPAA laws), we will help match you with the calmest most affectionate bunny possible. If you suffer from PTSD a bunny can be a great pet because they never make loud or unexpected noises. In the fall of last year we had a gentleman contact us who came back from Iraq and had severe PTSD . He explained that he wanted a bunny because he was sure there would be no sudden noises. He also was worried about sudden movements so we paired him up with a slightly older bunny who was more sedentary. He regularly sends us photos and updates us and so far things are going very well .
Depression and anxiety are other mental illnesses that can be alleviated by a bunny. We do “bunny personality tests”, then we determine which bunnies are ESA candidates. If you feel you need an Emotional Support Animal we can also provide a licensed signed “Letter of Support” and an ADA card explaining your rights. Depression, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder are all afflictions that can be more easily managed with a pet rabbit. There have been many studies proving that animals help ease these emotional afflictions. In Jan, 2020 we started working with a psychologist who helped us formulate a “10 part ESA bunny test”. (She actually adopted an ESA from us and she continues to help us be the first bunny breeder in the US with an ESA bunny test.) For privacy reasons we only videotape the tests on our private FB group. Once finally established we plan to publish the tests and share our findings (along with the psychologist who helped us).
ESA is our focus and we are very proud to be the first rabbit breeder in the USA with custom ESAs.
It’s difficult to explain a custom ESA so I’ll just provide example . Last winter a NJ woman contacted us - she was depressed because her son was wheelchair-bound after being hit by a drunk driver. At the time they had no pets. So we knew we had a daunting task ahead of us. We had to train a bunny who would be familiar with a wheelchair. The woman also explained that she works from home and she generally sits on the couch typing on her computer. Luckily for us in this case we were told that we would be able to choose which bunny was most suitable. At the time we had two large litters so when the bunnies were about six weeks old and we completed their ESA tests we chose a lilac tort who was very calm and had scored high on her tests. We spent the next four weeks making sure that at least four times per day we held the bunny while we were on the couch typing. We don’t have a wheelchair in the house but we do have a chair that has wheels at the bottom. On a daily basis we sat down with the bunny on our rolling chair and wheeled around the kitchen to make sure that the bunny was comfortable with that sort of movement. Occasionally we videotaped the training so that the Adopter would feel confident and secure in her choice.
These are just some examples and it’s very time-consuming which is part of the reason that we only do four breeding cycles per year. If you’d like to discuss your ESA needs we are more than happy to, please email “LustersLops@gmail.com” for more info. We guarantee your confidentiality.
Some of our Lops
Our baby bunnies are far more than a business to us - they’re family. In breeding terns we are called “Preservation Breeders” which means that we accept responsibility for every single bunny that is bred in our rabbitry. None of our bunnies have ever been in Humane Societies or Rescue Facilities. Any bunny bred by us is welcome to return if necessary. We breed responsibly and pay special attention to minimizing the known hereditary diseases by having all our parent animals health tested by a certified vet.
Lusters Lops’ Mighty was from our original mpl line! He’s a Sablepoint and he’s a very sweet playful young ladies man! His fur is extremely dense, he has a nice wide crown, great ears and he’s very small! His first babies will be mid-2023!
Lusters Lops “101” is a black otter Holland lop who was born at Lusters Lops in December 2022. She’s definitely one of the sweetest most angelic bunnies we’ve ever owned so we kept her and we are hoping she will be a mommy for us in summer 2023! 101 is Olivia’s daughter and Morticias sister!
Two-Face is our vm harli doe. She’s an absolutely excellent, protective mother. She’s always willing to help foster her “sister wives” babies. We drove 10 1/2 hours to Western Pa to pick her up and she was well worth it. Her kits are always beautiful.
Bat-Man is our 1st clean line buck. He is deep black- his fur feels like velvet. He is featured in a lot of our FB videos because he free roams the main floor of our house. It took him about 72 hours to become fully potty trained. Our only problem with him is that he fully believes he is just another house dog. When our dog goes for a walk, Batman sits at the front door begging to be walked….they even share a water bowl. As soon as we wake up Batman comes zipping down the hallway, he flies into the bed and begins licking foreheads🐰💜.
Reese’s is one of our chestnut agouti mpl bucks. We hope for babies from him in 2022! We worked on ears, body length and HEC and we can see here that Reese’s is definitely an improvement!
Belle is the 1st bunny we have ever had who occasionally sticks out her tongue as we pet her! She flew over 24 hours to arrive in NY where we picked her up. We will probably be keeping all of her 2022 kits for a top-secret 🤫 project we are working on with a team of mpl breeders. This summer we will begin to focus on the project 🤫.
Dig-Dug is a lilac magpie who was born here at Lusters Lops.
Pong - photo coming soon
Try to guess who Pongs mommy is????? If you guessed Two-Face then you are correct👍🏻🐰💜.
Zelda was actually the very first BEW that Lusters Lops produced.
Tetris has the most beautiful mixed color fur……Two-Face (of course) is Tetris’ mommy👍🏻.
Tink is the first Sablepoint ever produced at Lusters Lops. She was from Bonkers’ first litter which was the very first litter ever born in Ma so she has a special place in our 💜 heart.
Cope Clans Casper actually is a Papa to one of our litters and he’s now living in Maine with a mpl bunny wife!
Berry is our blue Holland Dam from Show Glo lines.
Jay Zee is one of Two-Faces sons. He has a gorgeous dense wavey coat of fur and a lovely fun personality.
Lusters Lops’ Dancer is a full import purebred mpl fox colored. He’s quite small and very typey which is a great feature in a buck🐰💜🐰🐰🐰😓.
Starburst was born here on Valentines Day. She has the most amazing coat of fur, it’s extremely dense and she is 100% sweet- she bows down to be pet, she enjoys being carried around……We love her a lot😘🐰💜
Fluffer is a very important rabbit to us. He was one of Batman’s first sons and clearly Batman is one of the most amazing, affectionate bunnies ever. If you watch the videos on the Lusters Lops FB page you’ll see that Batman is free-roam on the top level of our house.
Mikayla has such a sweet personality. She’s a light harli with beautiful dense fur.
Photo coming soon
Comet is a beautiful chocolate otter who was born at Lusters Lops in December 2022. He is a pure import mini plush lop and we except babies from him in April, 2023. He is a Belle baby so he should be gorgeous!

Leaf is one of Belles first daughters and she is calm, affectionate and one of the sweetest little buns we’ve ever had🐰💜😘

Olivia is our proven broken blue carrying chocolate otter Holland lop. She came to us from Gloria Waddell and her grandmother has more than 60 legs!!!!! We look forward to producing brokens, lilacs and chocolate otters from her in Fall 2022 and 2023. We hope to retire her late April 2023 so, if you are interested send an email…we will be picky about a home for her.
Bowser is our lilac tort Holland lop dam. She was born at Lusters Lops and she is one of Berrys daughters. Berry is from Sho-Glow lines.

Hridayaa was our first booted chocolate chestnut! Look at those amber eyes…..💜🐰👍🏻.
Cookie Dough is coming all the way from Sweet Huckleberry Farms in Washington State!!!! One of her parents was bred by Fuzzy Peach Rabbitry in Canada who is well known for producing gorgeous MPLs. She should arrive early 2023. It’s extremely difficult to find a beautiful tri proven dam mpl and this was the only one we could find so we waited 11 months for her! Hopefully by Spring 2023 we will be able to make tri babies by mating her to Jay Zee! She will be arriving at the end of January 2023.
Brutus is one of our chestnut agouti Holland lop bucks. He was born here at Lusters Lops as a 4th generation member. He’s a lot of fun, and he comes when his name is called so…..Yeah Brutus👍🏻💜🐰

Treat is a full import chestnut agouti mini plush lop doe. We are hoping she will become a Mommy mid-2023!
Frequently Asked Questions
Should I rescue a bunny instead of buying one?
Sure. We are happy to put you in touch with local rescue groups. During the late 90s one of the partners volunteered at a rescue/kill shelter for dogs. We definitely understand the importance of rescuing animals. All of our dogs have been rescued as adults. We actively foster animals each year too. Morally, we vacillate as to whether breeding animals is acceptable which is the reason that we are “Preservation Breeders”, we accept responsibility for ALL of the bunnies who were born at our rabbitry. Should any Furever Family encounter a life situation which causes them the desire to surrender their bunny, we gladly accept the bunny back into our rabbitry - no questions asked. We only request that the bunny be in good health and that we are notified two weeks in advance so that we can organize a pen for the bunny. Our goal is that NONE of our bunnies ever take up much needed space in a shelter. We also donate 10% of our net profit to our local wildlife rescue group.
Should I get 1 bunny or 2?
We have lots of families that have one single bunny and they are thriving. It is definitely ok to have just one bunny. There are lots of benefits to singletons. They don’t need to cover each other’s smells, there is no competition, they get all of their affection from their humans……and it’s the Owners choice whether to spay or neuter.
We also have multiple families with 2 or more bunnies. It is possible to “bond” rabbits but you need to plan carefully and you’ll probably need to fix at least one of the bunnies and possibly both. If you already have a rabbit, let us know and we will help you pick a bunny who has the highest chance of successfully bonding. If you don’t have any rabbits and you have your heart set on two, we advise adopting 2 girls who are the same age so that they can grow up together OR, a girl and a boy who are both young (with an agreement to fix the boy at minimum). We don’t advise adopting two bucks. At maturity they will scuffle and even if you fix both of them, there’s no guarantee of success.If you want two bunnies you fully understand that there is a very big possibility that they will need to be fixed and bonded. This means that they will need to be kept separate until 8-10 weeks post surgery.We are reticent to allow people to adopt two because we don’t want one to be returned at 4 months old when they scuffle so, if you have your heart set on two, pre-plan the appointment and budget for fixing them and prepare two separate pens.
Should I rescue a bunny?
Sure. The House Rabbit Network in Woburn, MA has bunnies and you might even be able to adopt a bonded pair! If you have allergies though, it will be difficult for you to find a hypoallergenic bunny in a rescue and we specialize in hypoallergenic lops. Visit a rescue and spend time with the bunny before committing. We donate money to a wildlife rescue and years ago we volunteered at a kill shelter. For this reason we never ever want any of our bunnies to take a much needed space at a rescue. If you can no longer take care of your bunny you can return her to us (as long as she is healthy and we have a 2-week timeframe to plan out a pen).

******On a daily basis we receive a couple emails asking for mpl breeders throughout the world. It takes us time each day to put the buyers in contact with the breeders so we thought it would be more “time-efficient” to just make a list of mpl breeders. We do not claim any legal responsibility for their rabbits but, these people are well known in the industry for being honest breeders who care about type, overall quality and take great care and pride in their rabbitries. This is a MPL list only. If you need a Holland lop please email us because there are just too many Holland Breeders to list.
