I was thinking about asking the rabbit breeder who works at TSC if they breed Hotots. She sold some Lion Heads at the store a couple months ago.If your sister received the bunny as a present for her birthday, maybe you can check with the person who gave it to her. They may remember where they got it, and you can check whether that source has any available now.
The American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) has a page where you can search for breeders of purebred rabbits.
You can look on craigslist, or see if the local feed store has a bulletin board that people post ads on, or ask the feed store if they can recommend anyone who breeds rabbits.
You can search online for a breed club for any particular breed you are intersted in, then see if they have a list of breeders.
I think rabbits can be shipped about the same way as dogs and cats (kennel on an airplane), but not the same as day-old baby chicks (Post Office, no food or water needed).
Yes, I'm sure it would be stressful for the rabbit.
I would also be nervous of buying a rabbit without seeing it first, unless I knew and trusted the person it was coming from.
