You can check out the various domestic breeds of rabbits here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_rab.... The English spot is about half the size of the Checkered giant; they are otherwise similar, but given the size of the eye patch on this spotting I still think it might be a Checkered giant.

You'd do best to separate these various pictures into different spottings, as each is a different mammal. The rabbit variety is, I believe, called a Checkered Giant; it is raised for meat rather than for fur as it tends to be large.
