Pets of the same type/level/quality can differ in stat distribution. I don't know how many different stat sets there are for each pet, and there may be some pets with more or less stat distributions than others, but I've witnessed slight differences on quite a few pets.
Usually, when I see a difference, it's of the relationship: Pet 1 has More HP, less att/spd stats than Pet 2. If you have Pet 1 and Pet 2 and get a third pet, it will usually have the same stats of one of the pets you already have.
For example, from my armory, I have 2 rare level 17 rabbits:
1028 HP, 164 Attack, 219 Speed
1083 HP, 155 Attack, 219 Speed
So, depending on what you want, how you use your pet or your team composition, you may prefer one stat set over the other. That is also why you may want to keep two of the same pet if their stats differ.
Another example from my armory, level 7 rare Forest Spiderlings:
Forest Spiderling 1:
418 HP, 77 Attack, 96 Speed
Forest Spiderling 2:
437 HP, 81 Attack, 86 Speed
