Hi everyone,
I wanted to know the breed of the following rabbits. I have a hunch that they are English Spots.

Thank you,
Joanne and Michael

Images are showing up now. They are mixed breeds, that is as far as we can tell. Definitely not english spots. They don't look anything like english spots. Most breeds come in that spotted color ("broken pattern") so who knows what its ancestry is.

i can see how u would think they are english spots, but many breeds have that same fur pattern, and those rabbits looked mixed to me, so it will be extremely hard to figure out what breed they are. they sure are cute though!

Probably not English Spot, they have a short thicker coat and a thin long body as well as a full arch (this is my girlie)

The second one looks like it might have polish mixed in there because the eye and facial structure. My first pet rabbit was a new Zealand/polish mix hehe! She had buggy eyes but any breed can have the broken look. When they're grown you may have better luck!

Thank you so much for your advice! It's greatly appreciated it. We named our black girl, Midnight, and the spotty male, Chico Vargas.

She is such a cutie! ...Thank you so much for your advice! It's definitely so hard to identify some of these rabbits. I can definitely see New Zealand in my male rabbit. He has a long, thin body. Do you think he can be more of a checkered giant? I feel that there is more of a resemblance when comparing him and an image off the internet.

Thank you so much! Definitely can be a mixture of breeds (so frustrating). LOL

Maybe? Checkered Giants still have that full arch. I don't know how old he is or how much he weighs or what he's a cross between unfortunately, but when he's mature you'll definitely see defining traits easier! Sorry for the lack of advice

No. Checkered giants don't show up in the pet trade. They are very large and usually extremely aggressive. A very rare breed. Any breed can have that pattern. Its the long, full arch body type which distinguishes english spots and checkered giants, which these rabbits just don't have.

they look liked mixed breed, generic mutts. Best guess.... see what the most popular breeds are in your area for their mature size, and assume they are crosses between the two. :)
