I have two rabbits, I never EVER let them out with my German shepherd. I know for a fact that he would kill them because he tried once. I know that sometimes GSD's can co-exist with small prey animals but I think that's the exception, it's just too big of a risk and an accident waiting to happen. There's no need for them to 'play' together, rabbits are also extremely delicate and can break bones very easily so even if they got along there's still that risk there as well. Anytime I want to let my rabbits out for exercise my GSD goes in his crate or is leashed if we are just going in and out of the room they're in quickly. I wouldn't ever trust a GSD not to hurt a small prey animal like that.
