Is there are height and weight chart out there for yellow labs?

I saw posted in an answer on this site a height and weight chart for Great Danes and wonder if there is one for Labradors. I'm adopting a pup who looks to be a pure yellow lab in every way, except for short legs. Since he's a rescue, he might be a mix. At 5-6 mos old he weighs 28 lbs. Is he likely to reach 55-60 lbs, even with those short legs? He isn't ill-proportioned, just a bit height-challenged! I don't care if he is a mix, I just don't want to end up with a small dog. Medium to large is what we want.

if he's already 28 lbs he will more than likely be a medium dog. by some standards that is already a medium dog. if you want to know go to www.akc.org and look under labradors and there will be conformation guidlines that say averages for labs.

Could be an English Labrador Retriever which tends to be shorter than American Field Trial (what you normally see) which is a good thing. they tend to be calmer. Their heads are bigger and blockier than American Field Trial.

Good Luck

I haven't seen one but I am very interested to see if somebody here has one. I'm getting into showing Labs so any info like this is of great interest! Sorry I can't help you, I have a color chart (for breeding) but nothing else.
