 Hi- I just adopted a rabbit and I am not sure on the breed, I was hoping someone could help. A little information... He is one year of age, white everywhere - except the dot on his nose, the bottom of all four paws are gray, and there are one or two small grey patches at the base of his ear. He is about 3 pounds maybe 4. He is super friendly, energetic, and likes to be held. I have searched on the internet but I think he might be a mix. Any ideas? Thanks for your help!

Welcome! I imagine he's a mix of maybe lionehead and something else. It's hard to tell. But whatever his breed, he's adorable.

Thank you so much for adopting too...it's great that you gave this little cutie a second chance.

Is his name Elvis?

I don't know, but I agree he is probably a mix. And very cute, too.
A red eyed white bunny is called a REW, and ones without any marks are often Florida Whites, but they tend to be much bigger. He's some kind of dwarf if he's only 3ish lbs. at a year. That's probably the lionhead part, since they are smaller.

lol, his name isn't Elvis but I love Elvis! Thanks for the replies. I was thinking part Lionhead because he has a tiny little patch of hair on his head that is longer than the rest - but doesn't look like the traditional mane. I was thinking a mix but was just a little curious. Yes, Mocha, he is most definitely neutered! Thanks again for the insight and comments.

I think that breed of bunny is called 'Cuteness'. In fact, I am sure of it. What a tiny sweetheart!

Welcome!
the bottom of all four paws are gray,

Oh Lord, how cute is that?!! Especially when lying down and you can see base of all 4 paws! Must see more pics!
Is he a red-eye-white? The colouring of the feet plus REW makes me think he may have a little himilayan in him....Also can see lionhead and some dwarf traits (possible netherland dwarf). Mix breeds are unique and lovely and really impossible to discern just what they're made up of. So I agree with mellowzmum that his official breed must be "Cuteness".

So cute! I'm going to guess lionhead - he looks purebred to me, right face, right ears. And lionheads can vary widely in type. His color is tricky! If he didn't have red eyes I would say he was a regular broken color, but with lots of white. But the red eyes throw me off! I don't know what you'd call his color. Usually red eyed white bunnies don't have any color on them. Or you can have red eyed bunnies with color on the ears and nose (like himilayans), but it doesn't look like his color.

Absolutely adorable! I remember that my netherland dwarf seemed to have a little longer hair on the top of her head between her ears....could just be a coincidence. The ears remind me of the netherland dwarf though but the face doesn't quite match up to breed standards. Whatever the breed, glad to hear he's found a great home!

Elrohwen, the american rabbit breeders association webby(arba.net) doesn't have info on lionheads. What's best to look at breed stardards here? UK sites?

Jers, I believe lionheads aren't an officially established breed with the ARBA, but they can be shown and have a working standard. Since they aren't an official breed yet, there are a lot of different types of lionheads out there - lots of them don't look very close to the breed standard (they can have too much mane, not enough mane, too large ears, etc).

I would use this: http://www.lionheadrabbit.net/standard.htm


Oh, Otto also has that tuft of hair on his head where his ears come together (but his is pretty obvious since he has loppy ears). It's called the "crown" in loppy breeds I think.

Haha, when they're all groomed up like that, they really do look like little lions! And their ears are so tiny you can hardly see them.
