Welcome to the American Polish Rabbit Club or APRC website. Here you will find information on the "Little Aristocrat" as this regal little rabbit breed is known.
The Polish is one of the smaller domestic rabbit breeds, having a maximum weight allowance of 3 ½ lbs. and an ideal weight of 2 ½ lbs. They are popular rabbits for show and exhibition. Polish first made their way to the United States around 1912. Breeders have come a long way since then, in improving the type of the original imported animals. Large, bold, expressive eyes are a distinctive feature of the breed.
There are 6 different varieties accepted in Polish today: Ruby-eyed White, Blue-eyed White, Black, Blue, Chocolate, and Broken Pattern. Breeders have an excellent opportunity to try his or her breeding skills
