She's a very similar shape to our Lab. Who is often complimented by vets and other dog owners on how trim she is smile.

I'm pretty sure she will fill out a bit more when she finishes her growth spurt, but only a bit.

She looks healthy. And gorgeous.

With Labradors you are supposed to be able to see ribs, but not bony, pointy spines or ribs iykwim, my vet has a very good poster showing the difference

My parent have 3 labs and from my experience they don't really fill out until they are about 1 - 2 (human years).

No need to worry really your lab looks fine. Its when they get big then that an issue as they can eat so much, including carpet! (long story)
