We no longer breed English Spots...
The precise origin of English spots is unknown, but they have been in England since the 1850′s. They were recognized in the United States in 1924.
English spots are friendly, inquisitive, and energetic. In fact, when judging this breed, they are not posed instead they are encouraged to run the length of the table. This is the best way to evaluate their body type and markings.
English spots are, and have been from the beginning, a “fancy breed,” meaning they are used mainly as show rabbits. With all their markings they are a challenge to raise, but a well-marked spot makes it all worthwhile. English spots can also make good pets, since they generally have a nice personality.
