Thanks for the input everybody!

Without a pedigree there is no way to tell for sure but he sure looks like a lot of pure bred Labs in my field training group. Wow, look at the muscles in his backend. Maybe he's going to need lots of exercise to keep that kind of physique up? Lots of fun ahead for you. Nice boy.
Thanks for that info Longblades. I didn't know about 'field labs' vs regular, or even that those 'bolo' spots were allowed. I checked out some photos - so much variation in labs - but some look pretty close.

I also looked up "Vizsladors" but I think that these guys are more long and learn that our chunky little guy here... So I think that you have it right. If/when people ask I will say "He's a Field Labrador!"
