Our pet therapy program has a Lionhead, Leo. I LOVE him! He's such a sweetie (gives kissies/lickies). I enjoy combing his main forward so he looks like a little punk rock bunny. Leo has only a long haired mane, the rest of him is short hair. He does not aggrevate any known allergic kids...atleast anymore than any of the other buns. He is about the size of our adolescent english spotted. He is about 3 yrs old. I definately agree that lionheads are waaaaay cool!
Unfortunately, rex buns are often used for fur coats b/c they are so soft. We have a mini-rex named Trigger in our k-2 classrom. Our students were very disgusted to learn this about Trigger's family/breed.
