What breed is my rabbit?

by Bethie Lyttle
(Glasgow, Scotland)

Hi! Just over a month ago, I adopted this beauty from the adoption center in Pets at Home. They told me they didn't know what breed or age she is, but I'd love to know what breed she is. (Mainly so that when my vet asks me, I don't just reply with "uuummm.....").

When I first got her, I thought she was HUGE! But I've actually realized she isn't really that big. I'd say at the most she'd be considered medium.

She alternates between having one ear up, one ear down, and having both ears down. I've been told this is caused by either : a weak cartilage base, or she's a mix between a lop and "standard ear".

Any and all help is absolutely appreciated. Thank you.

I think it's definitely plausible that one of her parents had lop ears. My rabbit always likes to wear one or both ears down and I know for sure his mother was a lop, whereas the father had straight uppy ears.

She is absolutely beautiful, I have a baby boy that has very similar markings all over his body. However, due to the short stature of the legs and compact body, our bunnies are unfortunately not English Spots. English Spots are very rare as pets, and they have more of an arched hare type of body. It's possible that she is a broken mini Rex mix, use her feet and whiskers to spot the differences. If I'm not mistaken, Rex's have curly whiskers and 'dear shaped' heads. Hope that helps!
