Please look at my girl!

Hello everyone, I just obtained my second golden retriever and she is such a little mess already! I wanted to throw a couple of pictures out and see what you guys think. She was obtained from a person that got her from an "American Red Golden Retriever" breeder. Well....I have noticed some shady things since I have brought her home (her rabies tag that was documented wasn't actually her tag). Stated she was potty trained (bought her at 4 months) and none of that actually came to be true. She was underweight, had worms when i first got her. We have done very well and she is bouncing off my walls, just like I like them. I am including a few pictures because it really just seems like her head growth is lagging behind her body. I know that this can be normal but I am growing concerned that her head is going to be so much smaller than her body lol.

She certainly has a great golden coat, but her head makes me question whether she is full golden or not, what are your thoughts? Birthday 4/26/16 (almost 9 months). Makes no difference in how much she will be loved and pampered but I am curious.

She is a real beauty!. As for the head, our last golden (lost Sophie Oct. 12 to cancer just 3 months short of her 13th birthday) was a read gold and she had a small head. But she was big on brains! In fact, your girl's head doesn't look small to me as best I can tell in the pictures.. And she looks like she hit on a good loving home where she is well cared for.

She really does remind me of Chloe. She has s longer nose and a narrow face. I was just telling my mom how Chloe has a small head. Chloe is a petite girl.
