    We adopted a young Buck named Joey from our local shelter about 3 weeks ago....He is about 19 months now.....The shelter's description says, Rabbit/ ,White/ Black/ Spotted, other info [​IMG] He is median size...about half size of our Flemish Giant, about 8 month doe, but larger than 5 yr old mini rex buck....his ears stand up straight and has a big fluffy tail [​IMG] ...His grayish and tinted brown spots are unorganized and don't look like the standard broken pattern to me but.....[​IMG] The front half of his body is mostly white except for a small string of dots running down his spine....The magority of his ears are dappled with grey speckles...he also has ruby-like eyes (They only seem to shine red when in certain light)
    For more help see pics below. There are full body, and close up pics of each side...There is also a front veiw and general veiw of his body type when rlaxed...
    (sorry they are slightly darker and appear more dull then the real thing) [​IMG]

    Just curious what breed and color pattern this charming little boy is?

    Thanks for all your Help and Information!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I am to new to rabbits to comment on the breed. That main reason I wanted to respond was to say good for you rescuing that little guy! What a beautiful picture of him (third from the top) from animal shelter to hopping through the grass. You made a difference in his life!

    The hair is too long to be a rex, but it appears to be a mix. How much does it weigh?

    I could be wrong, I often am, but he reminds me of a harlequin/ white New Zealand/ ? mix we had. The dad was a Magpie Harlequin the mom was a big broken red rabbit, the size of a newzealand. Just throwing in my two cents worth. Whatever he is, he is a beautiful rabbit!
