    My first lab had the curly coat (down her back) in winter and shed to a summer coat along with the otter tail, robust torso and blockhead, more like the pic in the attached link. When we moved from north Alabama to the Mississippi gulf coast (1977) during her first vet visit a local patron asked, "what kind of dog is that!" and when I told her "Lab" she harrumphed and sniveled up her nose. That's when I suggested she take a peek at the January, 1976 cover of Sports Afield magazine and that she'd see a lady with her dogs that all looked very similar to Missy. She said "well, who was that lady?" Queen Elizabeth was my reply as she then scooted out the door with her lap dog in hand. The vet said Missy was a rarity in that part of the country as many of the local breeders were of dubious operational integrity. Based upon what I've experienced in Oklahoma, (as CS stated) you may have a daunting task in finding real English blood in labs hereabouts.

    This is a place your nephew may end up looking into as there are lab breeders and there are lab breeders.
