        We found this little cutie at Tractor Supply and couldn’t resist. We’ve owned a rabbit before, so we are familiar with the care needed.

        What I don’t know is what breed this baby is? Anyone have any guesses?

          Im not en expert with breeds but looks like he could be an english spot / lion head?

          We have an older english spot / lionhead  female (I think) and she looks very similar just a bit fluffier, but lionheads often grow into their fur and manes when they get older.

            The head shape suggests she has dwarf in her. I’m going to go with Nethie or Nethie mix. Probably not a true dwarf, based on the ear length. The broken gene has been introduced into a lot of breeds, so I wouldn’t rely on the pattern. Broken black is common in Nethies. The “fuzziness” could just be a baby coat.

              Awww, what a beauty! 😀

              Yes, I’d say dwarf mix and a false dwarf too. One of her parents is possibly a Dwarf Hotot: they have the dramatic black smokey eyes. They are normally white-coated, so the other parent probably brought in the black speckles.

              Our youngsters Owen and Molly are dwarf mixes too, and both false dwarfs. You can indeed tell by the ear length: true dwarfs have a max ear length of 5 cm. False dwarfs have larger ears and they’re also a bit larger and heavier. My boyfriend’s first bunny Waffie was a full Nethie female and a true dwarf. She weighed just under a kilo and was so tiny. Our next rabbit Breintje was a full Nethie as well. He was a false dwarf though and just a bit larger than the full dwarfs. He weighed 1,3 kg instead of the standard 0,8-1,2 kg, and his ears were slightly longer than the 5 cm.

               

              Rabbits can change colour quite dramatically as they age: both our bunnies were a very light brown as babies, and the hobby breeder where they came from had already given up on them based on their fur colour. He specialises in Cinnamon coloured Netherland Dwarfs, and this was the first litter of a new buck.

              This is Owen (L) and Molly’s (R) first baby photo, taken on 12 November 2021:

              This is Owen only 5 weeks later! When he got his puberty he suddenly got that dark mask and dark ears that’s so typical of Cinnamon-coloured bunnies. I sent pictures back to the breeder, and he didn’t expect this either.

              Molly stayed very light for months, this is a picture of them just a couple of weeks ago in the end of April:

              She is just going through her first moult, and tadah!… Now we have two Cinnamon bunnies! My boyfriend doesn’t see that well in low light, and sometimes he can’t tell them apart 😆

                  Looks like a Netherland mix or false Netherland. My false Netherland dwarf is fluffy because he is a baby so at this age, you can’t really tell by the coat. Defiantly adorable!!! Also, tractor supply sells bunnies??
