Thats looks like a lab that should be owned by white trash or most likely a nig

The white paw makes me question the "Chocalate Lab" status. I have bred numerous litters and never had markings on a purebred. No white anywhere. But if you don't care and will give it a long term home, I say go for it. There is nothing like a great dog!

I would get it, whether they are an idiot or not they are loyal and would protect you with their life if a situation ever arose. Not to mention you will probably find you like the dog better then 99% of your friends.

My neighbor had a stray chocolate lab come to his porch and it had been professionally trained. This dog was the smartest dog I have ever seen. Once I was at his house and he gave the dog the command to stay. Well we got distracted with some yard work and about a hour later he looked over and saw the dog in the same spot and was like oh shit. He would put a hot dog on his nose and the dog would not move until told too. I think it would be a great addition for you.

Steveo, I would recommend against it. Judging from what you've posted, your lifestyle is not a good fit for owning a dog at this time.

If you can, definitely let it stay with mom for another couple of weeks. 6 weeks is too young - speaking from experience with a chocolate lab. The dog has issues.

Dogs are the best! Get it at 8-10 weeks. I don't know your lifestyle but if it can work GO FOR IT! I vote yes.
