A lot of your dogs weight has to do with what you are feeding him and what his genetics are. Are you feeding your dog a puppy type of dog food? One that has higher nutritional value just for puppies?  Not all dogs grow at the same rate because of reasons I mentioned above. Just feed your dog a good food and give him plenty of play and exercise and he should be just fine.

 

You have had your dog to the veterinarian for a check up and a check for intestinal worms, haven't you?

 

Don't worry about your English, we understand you fine.

It's pretty common for pups to have worms when they are young. The important thing is that you had them treated. Yes, do find a dog food that is made for Puppies and you'll be fine. And good luck and be happy with your new friend!

I am in a similar situation.  

 

Luna came here without papers but she looks like a black lab. (The shaggy dog is 100% mutt!)

 

I am curious how far off-standard Luna is.

 

I have a few more pictures in the gallery.

From your photos I can't really tell a lot. But your dog does appear to have lab ears and coloring. Here is a link to the Labrador Breed Standard. You should be able to compare your dog to the standard.
