Hasn't blown

The worst thing you can do to a double-coated breed is shave it. Without the outer coat the dog would over-heat, get sun burn and the coat would grown in twice as thick with a very coarse texture. Labs are not double coated so although cosmetically unappealing shaving is often favoured especially if dog isn't brushed regularly enough.
