    This rabbit was a gift from a co-worker. He told me that it is pure bred, had paper(when he finds them he will give them to me),and was taken to shows. I have
    tried looking up rabbit breeds on the internet, and have not been able to pinpoint which breed it is. It is a dwarf, with a mane around its neck, and has blue eyes.
    Any help would be appricated.

    That would be the Pretty Fluffy Bunny breed.

    Looks like a lion head to me. I'm not sure about the specific color, other than it looks to be some sort of himalayan variant. Gorgeous rabbit though!

    And also not a showable breed, unless the show allows lion heads. I also believe that white spots on the rabbit is also a DQ.

    It is a Lionhead. The color is considered a tan pattern. Can't say I've ever seen a tan with blue eyes. Lionheads are not a recognized ARBA breed. He may have a pedigree, but he is not registered. Nice rabbits though. Even temperment and mature to around 3 lbs.

    Cute and I love any Siamese markings on pets!

    They can be shown but for 4H and so forth.

    Quote:No rabbit with a dq should be shown as a 4h project. Nor even given to a 4her like that. Not only is it disapionting for the kid when their animal is disqualified form the show, its also considered an unethical practice. So no, this bunny(nor the breed) would not make a good 4h project unless the fair makes exceptions. Most 4h shows also use the ARBA show rules. Which means the animal would be disqualified for having white on a solid colored body, and would not be able to compete for best in show.

    Oh I thought it mainly for showmanship classes. I thought alot of our bunnies in the fair looks like mutt bunnies or some kind of hybrids.
