I guess the problem with buying a rabbit from a pet store is you never know why the breeder sold to the store. Does the breeder just prefer to sell through pet stores. Or did the breeder just have some "extra" rabbits and the ones that he/she could not sell through regular channels get sold to the store.

As for as the "look" of the rabbit I do not believe that is really an issue. When it comes to being a good pet temperament along with health is the overriding issue. Body shape, hair and hair color are the main factors when it comes to acceptance into an ARBA sanctioned breed/category. It turns out that that those genes are a different set than those for temperament.

It would have been nice to know that person breeding your rabbit breed for a good pet terminate. You never know, your rabbit could turn out to make the best pet. Bottom line, don't worry what your rabbit "looks" like, worry about how your rabbit acts.
You have to do the most good for the most. You must remember that a few won't make it. Don't be ashamed to shed a tear for the ones lost along the way, we will not hold it against you. Just remember "the herd goes on".

So far his temperament is great I'm able to pick him up so with out biting. He seems to be a good rabbit. I actually got him from Buzz and Bees .

Congrats on getting your first rabbit! I'm sure you'll enjoy him :)
In my opinion he appears to be a Netherland dwarf or Netherland dwarf cross breed. He's very cute though, and quite the handsome lil' dude.
what's his name?
