Type - Very cobby, massive and muscular. The neck on a good German Lop

the hindquarters. From a short nape the line of the back should rise in a slight
curve to a well-muscled rump which should be short and well rounded. The
front legs are short, straight and thick. The hind legs should lie parallel to the
rump and not jutting out when resting. A dewlap in does is permissible.
Head - The head should be strongly developed with a distinct width between
the eyes. The German Lop should have a Roman nose appearance with welldeveloped cheeks.
Ears - The ears should be broad, thick and of good substance, they rise from a
strong ridge called the crown on top of the head, carried closely to the cheeks,
with the openings turned inwards. The ears should hang down straight just
behind the eyes without either being carried forwards or backwards. Ear
