so i have a buck that is pure bred, 6lbs, a year at the end of summer, and I'd like to figure out what his breed is, what color he's considered, and if he's be considered show quality. all responses are appreciated! i believe hes a silver fox (sorry in advance it wont let me upload any pictures or use the url bbcode)

Looks more like a champagne d'argent to me (the main difference is really their fur; champagnes have normal rabbit fur, silver fox have very long, thick coats). If he really is 6 lbs, then he'd be too small for showing, both those breeds disqualify if under a certain weight (I cant recall, somewhere between 8-10 lbs)
