She weighs around 2.5 pounds, and is full grown. I was worried sick about her weight until the vet assured me that she was okay, just very hyper. It wasn't too difficult to narrow down to a few rabbit breeds, because she's defintally not a giant or a rex. I narrowed it down to an English Spot, or a Dutch. I'm leaning towards English Spot, seeing as her markings are closer to an English Spot then a Dutch. However I could be completely off.

Regardless of whatMaggie is, I'll always love her. :)

At that weight she won't be an English Spot as a breed because they are massive.

My guess is a netherland dwarf. And as for the marking, either a broken black or a black vienna marked (if that's the correct language). Both those markigns can look somewhat like the English Spot markings, so you got that right :)

She's really beautiful :)

Yup, definitly not a Spot, they are much bigger and also much more lean and thin, not really well rounded like little Maggie. I would also guess Netherland.

Very pretty! :)

If I've remembered correctly, the picture in Jenson's avatar is an English Spot, and you can see the difference in face, ear and general shape.

Yes, that's right she's a pure English. I used to breed them, but I only have three left now, had to make more room for the Rex!:(

I'd say a nethie too. She is around the right size (i think). I'd say she has at least some netherland dwarf in her, maybe even pure, just not a "show quality" - BUT, that doesn't make her any less beautiful!



Shes oh so pretty! Sorry, I have no clue about the colouring though... Sorry :(



Shay, Simi, Sisi, and "no-namer".

Classic mismarked Dwarf Hotot, and most likely a purebred;)Some of the markings are caused by the Dutch gene (Blaze and "stops" on theback feet). Body spots are produced by the English Spotting gene. The mismarks are not showable, but are often used in breeding programs.

Dwarf Hotots are known for their "hyper" personalities.

We've been raising them for about 10 years. You'll find a photo of one of our mismarks that looks exactly like your rabbit on this photo essay I did of the Dwarf Hotot (last page)http://www.geocities.com/madhc1/TheDwarfHotot1.pdf

Check out the rest of the site for more photos, coloring pages, and additional info on the Dwarf Hotot http://www.geocities.com/madhc1/
