    Hi,

    When I got my 10 week old baby I was told she is a netherland Dwarf, however her ears are too long.

    Just out of curiosity what breed is she? I believe netherland Dwarf Cross English spot

    Thank you IMG_20190717_164246.jpg 15633798080634181089205186628868.jpg

    Just a generic mix likely. Ears are too long and face too pointed to be a ND.
    Not an english spot. That colour pattern is common is many many many breeds

    This shows how many breeds can be confused with an English Spot:

    I have seen some dwarf Hotots that color, but this could also be a Netherland. I believe the coloring is called "Piebald." His ears do look a little long and his face is a little too pointed for a dwarf. Not all rabbits born to dwarf rabbits end up as dwarfs. Sometimes a bunny is born that does not inherit the dwarf gene, so maybe this is a "false dwarf."

    Reminds me soo much about rex bunnies, with how the spots are. ^^

    Wait until your bunny reach 6 month and she will get more form than as a kit

    That term (piebald) is only used in Hotot and Dwarf Hotots, which this rabbit does not seem to be.

    The color is "broken black otter".

    It could be a Netherland Dwarf cross. I would also believe it if somebody told me it was a poorly bred (pet breeder) Netherland Dwarf. Definitely not an English Spot cross

    Watching the video from blue eyes it looks like she is a broken Britannia Petite

    It is definitely not an full arched breed of rabbit so 100% not a Britannia Petite.
