I have 2 rabbits Buster and Barney and i know that Barney is a french lop but my other rabbit Buster was from pets at home and the person was not too sure if he was a mix breed or not, i have researched and the closest i can link him to is a english spot though his build and head shape is not the same

He's not an English. That marking comes up in many breeds.

Looking at those ears he looks like possibly some sort of lop cross to me.

Does he have lop ears or is he just laying them down in the pic?

Definitely not an English lop.

How old is he? How much does he weigh? Do you have a pic of him standing up? Or with his ears in their more normal position?

his ears are mainly sitting low either side of his head which made me think lop aswell but the person at pets at home saying spot when i got him made me a little confused, this is a pic of him in his usual look, he's around a year old, he weighs around about 3-4kgs just now

He's a lop. Maybe even a full lop, like a dwarf lop.

His marking is called the butterfly marking (although some people may say broken). I'm unsure of the colour from the pics, but maybe tort butterfly/broken tort. Although he may not be tort, he may have something else.

Could be tortoise as when he was younger he had more markings on his back of the light brown he has now and a darker brown almost black but most of them have disappeared
