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.
If you would like to adopt a bunny please email us. If you are not located near beautiful Massachusetts or New England area, weather permitting- we can air ship or use transportation companies to the lower 48 states.🐇. We can also refer you to a good breeder near you. We are ARBA and USDA registered and we can be found on www.ARBA.com and on www.usrabbitbreeders.org.Email us at - LustersLops@gmail.com to join the waitlist.
Lusters Lops Rabbitry
How We Do Things
How It Works
Our Rabbitry is located in beautiful New England (Westwood, Massachusetts & New London, CT). All bunny pickups are conducted in Walpole, MA unless otherwise agreed upon. We are happy to deliver to a public meeting place within 20 miles of Walpole, MA. 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 anywhere within 20 miles of Westwood, MA. 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🐰
Mini Plush Lops & Mini Lops
We are having difficulty with our website and we havent been able to add the available bunnies. Please email LustersLops@gmail.com and we will send you photos and descriptions of all available bunnies. If you go on to the Lusters Lops Facebook page you can see individual photos and daily videos so you can watch your baby grow!
All deposits are non-refundable and we operate on a first come-first served basis. At any given moment multiple people are looking at the same bunny so if you put down a deposit it’s non-refundable because that’s the purpose of deposits. Please research the responsibilities and items necessary prior to owning a bunny so that when you put down a deposit your are prepared to accept a bunny into your home🐰💜👍🏻. Just scroll down and look at the Available Bunnies. If you see one you like please email us to reserve him or her👍🏻. It’s best to let us know your top 2 choices because multiple people are looking at the same time. Thank You. Breeding slows down during the summer and we only do 4 sessions per year so now is a great time to get a beautiful bunny👍🏻. We are expecting a litter of mini lops and 2 litters of mini plush lops in August to meet the waitlist needs.
💜👍🏻 GREAT LUSTERS LOPS NEWS***We just sent Hawaii their first mini plush lops in April, 2023! Now all 50 states have this wonderful breed.
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*.

To reserve a bunny just email us and let us know your top two choices. Once the deposit has been paid the bunny is reserved for you. All of the bunnies are hand raised from Day One. Import quality is more expensive because it cost more for us to import the parents.

Please make sure you are using GMAIL (not plain mail.com)💜🐰. All pet bunnies come with a Happiness Guarantee. If you are unhappy with your bunny for personality issues, we will exchange it free of charge*.*** Bunny must be healthy and we need a two-week notice. We will work with you to pick a replacement based on availability.
Breeders Only Read Please
As of May 14, 2023 we have a new policy. In general we will not be selling MPLs to breeders and we are happy to explain. This is one of the more difficult breeds to breed because it’s a “breed in progress”. If you are a new breeder perhaps it would be easier to start with a well-defined, well established breed. It’s much harder than just matching a buck to a doe……it requires studying photos, pairings, trends, structure, conformity and heritage…..If you are an experienced mpl breeder please send a message because we also believe in sharing our best stock so that the breed improves over time. We have nothing against new breeders, we actually have 18 mentees who have all different breeds!!! The other reason that it would be counter-productive to sell to breeders is that we don’t want our bunnies to end up in cages. We put a lot of effort into ESAs. This is our full time job and passion. We rarely use cages and if we do use cages they are attached to pens. There’s nothing wrong with cages at all. We just are breeding with one purpose. To provide bunnies who are healthy and cute but most importantly they must make great pets. To this end we literally hold every single baby at least twice a day. We raise them with the family indoors, uncaged in hard bottom floors and we pre potty train every baby! As you can imagine, this takes a huge amount of time and effort. To then sell a baby so it can go live in a cage would be counter productive. Why potty train bunnies if they are going to live on wire bottom cages? There’s another reason we decided not to sell to breeders. We accept deposits at a very young age so our ESA families can watch them grow in the daily videos. Breeders should only sell their BEST quality to other breeders. How can we determine type at 4 weeks of age? We don’t want to sell sup-par type to a breeder and have our name attached to that bunny forever. It wouldn’t be fair to us and we don’t want any MPLs out there with our name attached that are not superb quality. If you are a mpl breeder and you absolutely really want something that we have just message Stephanie or Brie. On a rare basis if we are extremely confident about type we may sell sr brood stock……Most of our closest friends are breeders. This is not to upset anyone. This is just to explain our thinking.🐰🎉👍🏻🥁
Please email us at LustersLops@gmail.com 😘🐰👍🏻. Go to Lusters Lops FB page to watch daily videos🐰💜😘.

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 surprise toy and of course, a healthy, happy bunny(s) 🐰💜👍🏻.

Lusters Lops© is the first and only rabbit breeder in the United States to develop and copyright a 5-part Emotional Support Animal 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 instantaneous 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 the company of an ESA 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 “5-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.)
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. 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 mini plush lop who was very calm and had scored high on her tests. We spent the next four weeks making sure that at least two 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. Serious inquiries only.
Some of our Lops
Here are some of our parents and some photos of babies that were born here. 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.. Here are pics of some of our parents and some babies we’ve produced!
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!
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🐰💜.
Neptune is Cupheads very first baby which makes her a 3rd generation for us! We are hoping Neptune will become a mommy in November 2023!
Belle is the 1st bunny we have ever had who occasionally sticks out her tongue as we pet her 🤫.
Dig-Dug is a lilac magpie who was born here at Lusters Lops.
Armos is our harli vm doe who hopefully will become a mommy in October 2023!
Cope Clans Casper actually is a Papa to one of our litters and he’s now living in Maine with a mpl bunny wife!
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🐰💜🐰🐰🐰😓.
Beetlejuice flew into Washington DC from our friends at Malvina Lake Plush Lops in Europe! He’s about 2.3 pounds and he’s the only bunny who sleeps in my bed! He’s tiny and very loveable.
Info coming soon!
Mikayla has such a sweet personality. She’s a light harli with beautiful dense fur.
Luna is one of Belles first daughters and she is calm, affectionate and one of the sweetest little buns we’ve ever had🐰💜😘
Coco is one of the sweetest little Holland Lops. He was born at Lusters Lops and is part of Paisleys original line. He’s a blue tort purebred Holland Lop from Show Glo lines.
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.
Colt is an absolutely stunning cream mini plush lop born right here at Lusters Lops from our first generation. His fur is extremely dense, his head and crown and ears have great shape and he has a lovely personality 🐰💜👍🏻😘. Weight was 3.9 pounds at last vet check.
Starlet is one of Lusters Lops agouti mini plush lops. She was born here at Lusters Lops. She’s calm, sweet and affectionate 🐰💜👍🏻😘.
Lilii - photo coming soon
FINALLY our very first lilac otter MPL arrived from Luxembourg Europe on October 17, 2022. This purple color was one of our goals so, this bunny means a lot to us. Many thanks to Malvina Lakes Plush Lops for trusting us with Lilii👍🏻🐰💜.
Cuphead is a full import baby!!!! She’s a chocolate torte and we are counting down the days until she is old enough to be a Mommy. Approximately Jan 1, 2023 we will finally get to mate her🐰💜😘👍🏻.
Harley is a harlequin buck born early 2022 and as you can see, we have been able to make the ears wider over time👍🏻💜🐰
Tuzi is a Cuphead baby! She will be staying here and hopefully in December she will become a Lusters Lops Mommy!
Lusters Lops Twister was one of our chestnut agouti lops! 👍🏻💜🐰
Bat is our very first tri-colored mini plush lop! He is with a wonderful family who has agreed to allow us to use him as a “stud buck”. As of November, 2022 we have a tri-colored dam flying 3,000 miles to come be his wife!🐰💜😘
Hridayaa was our first booted chocolate chestnut! Look at those amber eyes…..💜🐰👍🏻.
Cookie Dough is coming all the way from Canada and Washington State. It’s extremely difficult to find a good, sweet, beautiful tri proven dam mpl and this was the only one we could find so we waited 12 months for her! Hopefully by May 2023 we will have her babies!
Brutus is one of our chestnut agouti 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👍🏻💜🐰
Iris was sent to us from our friends at Bubblegum Lops in Arkansas. She has a very gentle calm demeanor and she’s a great mommy!
Tricia is a broken opal. Photo coming soon!
Jade is our first smoke Pearl mini plush lop and mid-September 2023 hopefully she’ll be pregnant!

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).
2022 AnnualMini Plush Lops/Plush Lops USA Show
Congratulations to everyone who placed in the 1st Annual Mini Plush Lops Show. With more than 100 entries, the competition was strenuous and 1 of the bunnies also won 2nd place in the magazine contest and got a full page!🐰💜👍🏻Without the judges none of this would have been possible so, thank you to BlueZak Studs and Malvina Lake Plush Lops from the bottom of our 💕 hearts. *** Sample pic for the post magazine contest.#LustersLops#MiniPlushLopsUSA
Breeder Directory (as of early 2022)
******On a weekly 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. There ARE other good, reliable mpl breeders who are not on this list too. We do not claim any legal responsibility for any other breeders 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 list gets updated about once a year and is comprised of people with experience in breeding MPLs. 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.

If you are looking for an English Angora Breeder or a French Lop breeder we can refer you to a respected rabbitry near you.
If you don’t live near New England we are happy to point you in the right direction. There are many great MPL breeders in the USA and worldwide. Since 2019 we have been compiling a list of good MPL breeders. The list is refreshed bi-annually in January. Additionally, if you need a French lop or a Rex or a Conti or an Netherland Dwarf or an English Angora or a mini satin rabbit, we have friends worldwide and we are happy to refer you. Just email us at LustersLops@gmail.com and we will find any breed that you want.
Free Roam Bunnies
How To Free Roam
Winter of 2020 I showed a family a drawing I had done of the ideal bunny and that was the day we came up with the term “Maxi Plush Lop”. It’s our goal to make a 20-30 pound plush lop. We are hoping to someday work with a guy from Mexico, a breeder friend in the mid-west, a standard Rex breeder, 2 other French Lop breeders and a PhD student. Stay tuned folks….we need more space so hopefully by 2026 we can work on this project!
Free Roam Information (Under construction) We believe that free-roam is what a bunny deserves. Why should cats and dogs get free run of the house and not bunnies? This area is under construction but soon we will add information on how to let your bunny be free and live a long, happy healthy life🐰💜.#LustersLops#bunniesofinstagram#sleepingbabybunnies#hollandlop#miniplushlops#minilop#ESApet#ESAbunny#housebunny
