Hello, new to the site. I have had mu rabbit Turbo for about a year and a half now. We were told that he was a dwarf rabbit but I feel that he is not dwarf in anyway so I was wondering if anybody knows any other rabbit breeds he may be. Photos attached of him recently and when we got him. 2132DC2D-219E-4EAF-967E-492BF381D24D.jpegB3D7992C-117A-49C0-AD0D-EC685C08DBF9.jpeg660B92D6-7106-4775-A58B-06DDF743315B.jpegAA1EDC79-1C7B-4FAD-BA30-158E2B8D3399.jpeg81F227D4-2F58-4717-8CF1-47172E686B1D.jpeg

What's his weight?
Although to me he doesn't really look like it he might be a dwarf breed or mix, but a "false dwarf". The thing with the dwarf gene which causes the stunted growth and tiny ears is that you get only 50% kits with the dwarf gene, and depending on if both parents are true dwarfs or not 25% (the other 25% peanuts die) or 50% false dwarfs.

Personally, I would be happier with a false dwarf, I like rabbits that look more like real rabbits more :), and I think those are less likely to run into health problems that sometimes come from being bred for looking overly cute.
