    Is he competition worthy or not ? Does he even stand a chance?

    His pictures are here:

    American Kennel Club - Labrador Retriever He needs all these to even stand a chance in the ring. I am not quite for sure i do not show my dogs. I think rayluckgoo may be able to help you out. There are a couple others but my head is not wanting to work rigth now.

    Alphie is a handsome boy, but to answer your question in my opinion, no. Very hard to judge from the pics, but he looks pretty tall. Muzzle appears sl. longer than desired. He also seems high in the rear. Was he bought as a show prospect?

    The muzzle length is fine (many many show dogs are getting far too short muzzled) but his lack of / splotchy pigment may hurt him. Really couldn't tell that much about structure from the photos posted. Looks like maybe he'd definitely enjoy some performance events though--- have you thought about that?

    Was he purchased on full registration as a show dog?

    Did you do any research on this breeder? There are allot of back-yard breeders these days. Did he come with papers? Were the parents on site? Find a Breeder - The Labrador Retriever Club, Inc. You can search him on here.

    Well, if you've got money to burn then go ahead and show him. However, and I say this kindly, the chances of him winning with competition is small. Most show dogs are bred for that purpose. A dog randomly bred rarely, if ever, amounts to being a top show dog.

    He sounds like quite the retriever. Why not do retrieving events with him? It sounds right up his alley.
