    Mr. Sanchez pretty tiny, fur is super soft and dense, fur is short but id say longer then normal fur. Has a wider head then the others and ears are floppy and past his head. Pretty calm but doesnt seem to take to other bunnies very well.

    And finally this is ripple. She has very soft fuzzy puffy fur. Shes pretty tiny and short legs, i was thinking dwarf rabbit but from the pics i think her ears are a bit long. She has big eyes super friendly and lovable. Lives to explore. Grayish ears and nose and a gray stripe that wraps all the way around.

    Hiya, very cute bunnies! And well done you for giving them a better life :)
    I can’t help you with breeds, but also knowing breeds won’t affect how you care for them - all breeds need the same care and temperament can vary vastly even between the same breeds so it’s more just an aesthetic thing than anything else. Are you planning on keeping all four together? Do you know roughly how old they are?

    Frizzle - lionhead cross. These do require a bit more grooming, of their mane, but yours looks to have a pretty small mane so it won't be too bad
    BunBun - mixed breed. Most mixed breeds end up looking like this, just a normal rabbit, so we can't say what its a cross of
    Mr Sanchez - either a Holland Lop or Holland Lop cross. These tend to be active little rabbits, but they are prone to teeth issues depending on the line, so keep an eye out on that
    Ripple - mixed breed.

    I would suggest a vet check for Frizzle with a knowledgeable rabbit vet. There are several health conditions that could cause weight loss in rabbits. She could be having problems with her teeth, particularly if she doesn't seem to be eating well. Or she could need deworming. Or if she is currently outdoors, the cold could be preventing her from putting on weight, particularly if she isn't free fed hay or have an increased amount of pellets(outdoor rabbits need more food in cold weather). I'm not sure what her previous or current living conditions are, but if she is skinny and not putting on weight, if you currently have her outdoors, I would suggest bringing her indoors because of her current health concerns. A skinny rabbit will have a difficult time putting on weight in cold weather, and this can affect her overall health. Or if her weight issues are from an underlying illness, being outdoors in the cold isn't going to be good for her recovery.

    Like popsicles mentioned, care will be essentially the same regardless of breed. Their size is a consideration though, as the bigger the rabbit, the more food it needs. One basic feeding recommendation for all rabbits, is free feeding a good quality grass hay(not moldy, no noxious weeds, not sunbleached) to help maintain good digestive function, which is a primary health consideration with rabbits as they can be prone to digestive problems. Here are some good links for proper care and feeding of pet rabbits.

    This looks like some kind of lop. The floppy ears indicate this...I think. I'm no expert. I just watch clips and read. Here's a video clip that talks about breeds:
