Pasting the paragraph from race (biology) here to hold. Needs to be incorporated here and/or in show dogs.

This kind of ongoing selection is why so-called field labs might be reliable retrievers in the hunt, but not look like picture-book labs, and "show Labrador retrievers" who are bred after earning championships in conformational dog shows generally look very much like the breed standard, but might not be reliable hunting dogs.
