|Brief History of Mini Rex|
Mona Berryhill began working on the Mini Rex when she received a pair of dwarf Rex at the 1984 ARBA Convention. Her first litter from one of the does became the foundation of her Mini Rex program. Two of the does from that litter were sent to other breeders so that they could begin work on this breed as well.
Monna first presented the mini rex in 1986 at the ARBA Convention in Columbus, Ohio. They passed their first presentation. At the ARBA convention 1987 15 new varieties were presented. Finally in 1988 the breed passed its final presentation and several of the varieties which had passed their second presentation were permitted by the ARBA to bypass thier third presentation and the Mini Rex was born.
