    To me his body build reminds me of a border collie, but it could also be setter.
    He doesn't really look very lab like to me at all.

    My Chessie did very well on Old Roy from Walmart and was periodically supplemented with canned salmon or tuna or canned dog food as dogs need meat. He also might get a few cooked peas and carrots. We don't really know what is in dog foods because it's not regulated. Chicken could mean chicken beaks and claws, even chicken manure. I am not exaggerating. When you read dog food labels, think of the worst it could probably mean, because that's likely what's in it.

    That's not really true- there are set definitions what each ingredient name means. While I agree that there is a question about enforcement, when a bag says "Chicken", it does have a definition per AAFCO: "Chicken - the clean combination of flesh and skin with or without accompanying bone, derived from the parts or whole carcasses of chicken or a combination thereof, exclusive of feathers, heads, feet and entrails."
