In my experience, New Zealand rabbits are very large, but normally mellow rabbits that end up loving you, and my mutt bunny and mini lops are even better. We think the mutt bunny is either a new Zealand or Havana mix. When she's in the exercise pen, and I get out of the car, she RUNS to the gate like a puppy that lost it's owner for years. So, I feel as though many rabbits are affectionate and it's not mainly one breed. Sure, some breeds could show it more, but they all still would love you.

agree with those who say -personality is individual , It also can be largely inherited . I have seen rabbits who will fetch a ball, or any thrown object that is small enough to handle. I have seen rabbits that "act out" until they are allowed to sit on a lap. I have also seen many "pet" rabbits surrendered to shelters, who had [for no apparent reason] turned from loving and happy- to "angry dangerous biters".

This is a great website for understanding your rabbits' body language and communicating with them. Several members have found it useful for modifying behaviour too.

I see now there is also a youtube about this. Haven't watched it, so can't say anything about its quality.
