I'm not great at identifying most breeds, especially as babies, but I do know that there can be a lot of variation in breeds. A show nethie looks very different to your average pet nethie.

Pet shops are often not very knowledgable about bunnies so may just have had a guess (pet shops mostly have crossbreeds in my experience too).

He looks like a small breed bunny so it may be that he is a nethie :)

Myself, I'm not too bothered about what breeds my bunnies are so long as they're happy and healthy :wave:

I think he looks like a Nethie / Wild cross but I'm probably wrong. He is cute though :)

how old is he?
if he is young then yes he could be a nethie...its not uncommon for pet nethies to have longer ears.
he also may grow into them, netherlands go through a stage when they are little when it looks like they will never grow into thier ears!:lol:

I will say the exact same as I said on the other thread...
Looks more like a Polish cross than a nethie to me but don't take my word for it as I don't have much experience with either breeds. There is usually a huge difference in looks between 'show bred' and 'pet bred', like the enourmous 'mini lops' with pointy faces you find in pet shops.

by 'pointy faces' do you mean 'not excessively brachycephalic so they can breathe, their teeth grow straight and their tearducts drain properly'?? :?

Sorry, dont know what your bun is, i'd hazard a cross x cutie-pie! :lol::lol:
