from the pic, i would say is American type since English type , their head is much broader and the snout is shorter, also their leg shorter too, i might be wrong, if so, pls correct me! :)

At first i thought mine was English type since he has a big head, but the more he grow, the taller he is, and often ppl said he is American type, cuz English type is shorter. :)

Appears to be more of the "field" or "American"...although lots have some of each in them. Nice looking dog nonetheless.

If he drinks tea he is an English Lab. If he drinks coffee he's an American Lab... :D

You can normally tell by their accent when they bark. Otherwise check their wallet, if its full of US$ then he's probably American!!!!

Just by looking the first photo I would say he is a "Field". Here is a link that gives you a pretty good idea of what you are looking for. http://www.woodhaven...h-american.html, it explains in detail of both English and Field. Our first lab was a American/English line but showed many of the English characteristics. Jed is a full Field line, he is a much bigger dog than our previous Lab. Hope this info was helpful.
