The color is called "opal" but as for breed, she's a mixed breed.

Maybe she's a Beach Bunny? What's her name? She's really cute.

Definitely a mix. She looks like she might have english spot? Some mini rex? something lengthy and tall

To be honesty I would not worry about identifying breed that much. Breeds are just a human construct, to enable things such as rabbit shows to operate. When it comes to pet rabbits, temperament genes are the most important. The kind of tenement that makes a good pet is not really judged at rabbit shows (ok, being "laid-back" enough to tolerate handling and being able to pose are in a way judged).

If the rabbit makes a good pet that is all that matters. It can be fun to look at a bunny and pick out the characteristics in a mixed-breed bunnies sort of like looking at clouds and imagining what they look like. I am saying just don't take it TOO SERIOUSLY.
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".
