Gotta love these Labrador heads!
Certainly doesn't look like a weim.
head or no head, colouring is all off. eyes too light too.
so what are you saying yellowbelly?
that's not a labrador?
I am saying that the dilute gene is not natural in the Labrador population.
Labrador or not, I disagree with breeders making a profit off of breeding FAULTS and clear DISQUALIFICATIONS. That's not proper stewardship of the breed.
Labrador or not, the color of the fur and the color of the eyes should not be something folks purposely breed for. Have a puppy that color? Sell it on limited registration and no breeding rights. Don't even provide pedigree papers for that kind of puppy.
Otherwise, enjoy the lab mix, because that color would never show up unless something was mixed in at some point in time...
Is Slab a breeder?
Is he trying to sell pups?
Did he ask/want your critique?
Or was he simply saying he likes the looks of his pup and the shape of lab heads in general?
That's possible. I know I joined this *Labrador* (Just Labradors, no less, lol) forum a goodly number of years ago... 20+ anyhow-- a lot longer ago than you. More has changed here than just the diluters polluting the gene pool.
Btw, you really don't know what may be happening behind the scenes as far as helping others. Thankfully there are still a few folks serious about the breed who are here. They are not all posting publicly. Some have gone to Facebook too. Lots of good forums there where people can't hide behind screen names.

(I do) and appearance says it's not, then go ahead and tell them.
My problem is folks may not be getting help with: puppy socializing, crate training, dog food, obedience training, etc.. when they're insulted and put down right off the bat.
Apologies if I was rude in previous post.
