"Dat is mijn snelle konijn."

Translation:That is my fast rabbit.

Could anyone please explain why we have "snelle konijn" and not "snel konijn" as "konijn" is the "het" word?

Because the word “my” is before rabbit. In the tips section of adjective basics you can see the rules for when an adjective gets an e ending. Regardless if the word is a het or de word, if a demonstrative or possessive pronoun (like “my” or “this”) comes before the word it will get the e ending

Mijn snelle konijn

Mijn snelle hond

Both would require snelle instead of snel

Hope that makes sense!
