    What type/breed is my rabbit? I got him a month ago and I don't know if he's a English spot rabbit. He's a very good boy and dad wants to know his breed. :) He's currently being kept with a New Zealand rabbit and he's not neutered.

    Can't tell what breed he may be though I am not well-versed in breed types.
    I do know that those trying to identify him would need to know age and weight to better help determine type.

    Many rabbits are often mis-identified as English Spot. The following video recommended by one of our members illustrates this well.

    Looks like mix-breed. The shelter in Lodi sent us an adult English Spot, 7 pounds and skinny. She filled out and grew to 20 pounds--Checkered Giant, maybe 4 months old at the time.

    Thanks for your replies. I kinda do think it's a minilop and flemish giant know.

    Yep! Definitely not English Spot. Probably mixed breed as you got from shelter.
