Don't know his breed, can you help?

I bought a 5-6 month old rabbit a couple days ago for my daughter from a pet store. The store had his labeled as a "mini lop" but his ears don't "lop" over so I would like to know opinions on what he is! He's black with brown eyes, smaller ears that stand up and he likes to have them together. The tips of the ears seem to bend in a tad at the top. He's small, maybe 2 lbs at the most, 5-6 months old and adorable but doesn't like to be handled quite yet.

It's hard to make a determination without a picture, but...ain't many breeds that meet your description outside the Netherland Dwarf breed.
If its body is a bit racy, it may be a Britannia Petite. Otherwise, if the rabbit is quite blocky in appearance, I'm guessing Netherland Dwarf. BTW
: Pet shops do a great service by providing pet and show rabbits to people across the country who have been looking for them. Don't let anyone tell you that pet shops don't offer great rabbits that are also well-cared-for.
