This is my daughter's dog. They said she was a golden retriever - hmm. I see lab. Anyway, what do you all think and is she too skinny?

Golden retriever? hahaha

Lab mix for sure. She looks healthy to me. Could put on 5 pounds or so, but I can't see her ribs or other bones. It's nice to see a healthy sized lab. I only see fat overweight ones.

I think she looks fine. Has a good shape. She had started to get a little chubby but then they cut down on her food. Doesn't get a lot of exercise until she comes to our house.

Hmmm...probably not a Golden. The dog looks fine to me. Better a tad thin than too fat--especially with larger breeds and mixes.

She's definitely not purebred Golden but she could be a mix.....my neighbors used to have a solid male black Lab/Rott mix who got together with the other neighbor's purebred female Golden (boy, was her owner mad!), and all the pups came out shorthaired, some solid black and some black and tan, all big and blocky. Not one of them looked anything like their mom. Genetics are weird.

I don't think she's too skinny. I can't see her ribs. She does have a very slim build, but if she's young she might fill out later on. She's a pretty dog.

Not really sure of the breed...I think lab mix would be a good guess....I don't think she is skinny at all...she looks like she is in good shape ...you can see a waist, muscles ....not very often do you see a lab looking as good as her....well at least not in my neighborhood :p

Agewise, she is about two and a half. Heightwise, just look at the table in the background. Average outside table size.
