Physical Attributes: The mini rex is a small breed with fairly short ears. The face is fairly thick, but it is not particularly short. The body is close-coupled and rounded. It comes in many different colors. The most easily noticed attribute is the amazing fur, which feels like velvet.
Personality: Mini rex are generally a very friendly breed. They have a medium level of activity, and can be perfectly content to play or to just sit on a lap and be petted.
Coat Type and Grooming: The coat is upright, short, and very plush. The guard hairs are the same length as the undercoat, and the coat is very thick, creating a plush, velvety texture. Mini Rex should not be brushed with a brush or a comb unless there is a distinct matt that needs removing. Instead, to remove loose hair, moisten the palm of the hands with water until they are just damp enough to be sticky, then run them over the rabbit's coat backwards. This will remove loose hair and static electricity.
