Below is a list of our available Labrador Retrievers. If you don't find the new friend you're looking for on this page, check out our Coming Soon Labs. We typically have approximately 30 Labs in our rescue program at any given time. Labs come into the program and are adopted daily, so this list is ever-changing.
Click each picture to find what our foster families have to say about each of our Labs. Since we don't have a shelter, all our dogs are in foster homes. Our foster parents provide as much information as possible on the behaviors and traits of our dogs.
The adoption fee for an adult Lab is $300. The adoption fee for puppies (6 months and under) is $375.
If you are interested in meeting one of our Labs, the next step is to complete an adoption application. Adoption information and application is found here. If you have questions about the adoption application process, send an email to our Applications Team.

Benedict - 4.4 Year Old Male
Initial Intake information: Black Male, Avail now
Benedict is a beautiful black Lab who is looking for his forever home. He loves the water and would like a swimming pool or trips to the lake. He also strongly requests a home where someone will play ball or hide and seek with him every day… he’s good at those games and loves toys! Benedict would do best with an experienced Lab family. He needs consistency and kindness, with a gentle firmness to remind him of rules he is supposed to follow (think: the strong-willed child, lol). He has responded very well to his foster family and he will make someone a great companion!
Jefferson - 3.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male (Mixed) - 90 lbs - Available Now
Jefferson is gentle boy with an amazingly loving personality and generally very mellow nature. He is crate trained, potty trained, and rings ‘the bells’ to let us know when he wants outside.
Jefferson may have sheep or goat guarding instincts in his DNA and needs a leader who is willing and able to establish themselves as a natural authority. He is protective of his foster, his home and the vehicles he rides in. He will alert to possible intruders at the door or nearby and therefore does best with a slow introduction to strangers. He has an experienced foster who can tell you all about his training and needs. Jefferson is looking for someone willing to put the effort into being consistent and firm so that he can relax and enjoy the good life.
*This dog may not meet the breed standard for a Labrador Retriever.
Sage - 2.2 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 67 lbs - Heartworm negative - Available Now
Sage is a real sweetheart. She loves to cuddle AND she loves to play! Sage is a special girl who will follow her people everywhere and just hang out as a good member of the family. She walks great on leash, is good in the house, crates well and is good with other dogs. She is unknown around cats and children but she is really just a sweet girl that wants a family to love her and keep working with her training so she can be the best girl she can be! Who wants to sign up for this sweet love bug?
Tramp - 2.6 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 70 lbs - Available now
Tramp is a big, super-sweet, playful, shy boy. He is house-trained, somewhat crate-trained, and needs some work on the leash. He knows basic commands, and lives to please. He wants to be near you, but is content to hang out on his comfy dog bed sometimes, too. He’s very smart, and understands what you want from him quickly. He does have a sensitive stomach, and needs sensitive stomach food, and limited car rides. He’s a big ol’ homebody. He gets along well with female dogs and other male dogs smaller than he is, and is very gentle with children; however, he might do best around older children because of his size.
If you’re looking for a gentle giant to complete your family, Tramp is your boy!
Logie - 4.3 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 81 lbs. - Available now
Klyde - 5.3 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male - 77 lbs - Heartworm postive - avail now
Klyde wants to meet you! He’s eager to tell you all about himself, but until that time, I (his foster mom) will fill you in on this sweet boy. His life before DFWLRR is unknown but I suspect he lived a neglected life. However, those days are over and Klyde is not looking back. It has taken time but he’s now heartworm free and gaining weight. He’s happy, loving, playful and housebroken. Klyde is good with people and dogs of all sizes. He would probably be best with older children but only because of his love for food. He is just enthusiastic & always ready to eat. Chubby little hands with cookies would be too much of a temptation. The visible signs of his former life are disappearing & it’s time for this boy to have the kind of life he always deserved.
Mac - 1.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 53 lbs - Avail now
Mac is such an awesome dog. We can tell you with our wealth of Lab experience that Mac is as easy going of a Lab as it gets. He is very sweet, friendly, quiet and well behaved. Mac is potty trained, crate trained, gentle, does not get on counters, and does not chew on anything he shouldn’t. He is a little shy but likes to be petted, hang out and gives sweet little kisses. He is recovering from heartworm treatment and is needing to put on weight. Meal times are favorite times of the day for him. Mac is very easy going around other dogs and likes to chew bones and hang out. He will probably enjoy tennis ball chasing and walks when he is feeling better as he wants to chase balls now but has to rest while he recovers. Mac is great friends with our 11 year old human boy and Mac likes to hang out with him while he does homework, watches tv and play video games. Other children in the house have been greeted with a friendly wag, a few sniffs to check them out and a quick sit by them as they play.
Mac is a very sweet, quiet dog who would do well in any situation. He also loves to nap so he would love a warm, cozy couch and bed to snuggle up next to you on.
Texas Ranger - 1.2 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Information: Chocolate Male - 65 lbs. - Avail now
Hi! My name is Texas Ranger. I’m a very handsome chocolate male. I have an average build but at 82 lbs, I am a bit overweight. I am sweet and a little shy. I do great in my crate and I ride in a car well. I have a soft mouth for taking treats, and I know how to “sit.” I like fetch, tug of war, and SWIMMING! I am hoping my new family has a pool. I love to play with my foster lab brothers and sisters. I don’t counter surf, jump up on people, or get into everything. I will occasionally bark talk to you to get your attention if I want something. I am housetrained and crate trained. I pull some on the leash, but Dad hasn’t been using the EasyWalk and Mom says that’s a magic harness! Children and cats are unknown. I am ready to find my new forever family.
Cuddles - 2.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 65 lbs - Availalbe now
Eagerness is written wide across Cuddles’ lovely face! This black beauty has a long list of loves including taking brisk walks, playing fetch, rides in the car, chewing on Kong toys and gnawing on bones. She's well behaved inside and lying down when needed. Both house and crate trained, Cuddles sleeps well through the night. She may get bored and chew on her bed or toys if not supervised for a longer period of time. She loves all food -- including any treat offered. She is a total sweetheart who would make an awesome family dog since she's past the puppy stage and very well mannered.
A request from Cuddles:
Hey there...I am very active, gentle, sweet, kind and have a loving personality. I follow my foster mom everywhere and am house-broken (I alert her I need to be outside). I sleep thru the night well in my own crate, walk good on a leash and know the basic commands. I ride well in cars, but am a good size so I prefer back seat. I am on watch and will alert you of strangers and possible intruders at the door or around. I love playing fetch with a ball or other toys. My foster mom says I am great with kids of any age. I was sharing a kennel in the shelter so should not be a problem with other dogs. I have lots of energy and would really love a family who would spend a lot of time with me or have kids to play with. I have all the information you need to adopt me, so who would like in their life?
Hollee - 11 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 30 lbs - Available now
Hi! I'm Hollee, a very sweet and slightly shy girl. I love every dog I’ve met and I can hold my own with the big boys! I met Klyde and Bucky and Kahlua at a doggie event and loved playing with all of them! I love to wrestle and play chase with other dogs. I didn’t know what fetch was, but now it’s my favorite game! I also toss my toys in the air and then chase them.
When I pick up something I shouldn’t have, I respond to the word “no” (just give me a favorite toy). I go into the crate with no problem. In the morning when it’s time for you to come let me out, I will remind you. I am pretty close to 100% housetrained (bell trained) and I love to eat! I was on the thin side but I am gaining weight. My fur is shiny and silky. I know how to sit for a treat and I have a gentle mouth. Even though I was hungry, my foster mom took a food bowl away while I was trying to eat and I didn't protest - turns out it wasn't actually my bowl! I'm good on a leash. I like to chew on my Nylabone while lying on the couch next to you.
I have tons of personality! I am hoping for a bigger doggie sibling that likes to play alot, or maybe person who will take me running! I am looking to find my furever family. Is it you?
Casper - 1.1 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Information: Yellow - Male - 49 lbs. - Heartworm Negative - Available mid November
Edgar - 2.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 73 lbs - Heartworm Negative
Howdy y’all, I’m Edgar! I’m 100% happy and am so excited to meet my furever family. I’m about 70# and exactly what you think of when you think “Labrador”. I love affection and will always be close by. When I hung out with my foster pawrents nephews, about 7yrs and 2 ½ yrs old, I was very patient and gentle with them even though I have typical Lab energy.
Shortly after joining my foster pawrents they noticed my hip didn’t look quite right. After some X-rays we learned I had hip dysplasia in my left hip : ( Fast forward 14 weeks and I am doing great in my recovery from a full hip replacement. Due to this I should tell you my hips and front elbows will need
to be monitored closely throughout my life. While I should be able to do almost anything a normal lab would do but it would be best for you, me and the vet to discuss my hip after adoption.
As I’m young and have been bouncing from place to place I’m still learning what is and what isn’t acceptable for me to treat as a toy, BUT, I’m eager to please and adapt quickly! Before my surgery, I was jumping on the couch, but there is a couch cover so it’s where I’m supposed to lay right? I have
stayed off the bed and sleep in my crate voluntarily, although open. Speaking of crates, not a fan if the door is closed, I need to work on that! We have a dog door here and I figured out in no time. Considering I don’t have to ask permission here, I may need some reminders on potty time if I go to a
home without a door…just a heads up. But again being eager to please this shouldn't be an issue.
Before my surgery, I would play at the drop of a hat, but also am good at relaxing. I like Nylabones and although I have started to play with balls some I don’t have a major retrieving drive. I play/get along great with the other dogs here. They range in ages from 2 to 13, male/female and big /small, so there
aren't concerns with me and other dogs. I’ve not yet met any cats so we aren’t sure about them, but I don’t really seem to have a mean bone in my body. I love the beach entry in the pool and did end up full on swimming once (oops). I swam just fine but don’t tend to swim just for fun. If you
have a pool we should do a few test runs to make sure I can get out if I fall in, of course. I’m not fantastic on a leash and since my walking has been limited this has not been able to be addressed. In short…I’m still a young lab that needs some basic training but I’m pretty much there
on almost all things, this dang hip slowed me down!
Overall I would do well in pretty much any household. I seem to be especially good with kids and other dogs are always good to have around! Please keep in mind I’ve been largely isolated for 16 weeks while recovering so I may be a bit fired up when I’m first ‘released back to the wild’! If we are matched I will let you pet my velvety ears while I lean into you. I hooked my foster mom in minutes with this technique. Look forward to meeting you!
Tin Top - 5.3 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 65 lbs - Available Now
My name is Tin Top and I am a truly amazing dog! My life kind of is like one of those country songs that starts out sad and then ends up happy. My sad start was being found on a rural rode with a gunshot wound in my shoulder. It shattered my front leg, so the amazing vet and his team had to remove it. But then they worked with me and helped me learn to walk on three legs. Cool huh? Soon a foster for DFW Lab Rescue came and took me to his home. I get lots of food (I was very, very, skinny), a nice warm cozy bed and tons of love from my foster parents. There are two foster lab brothers that I like but I am not really into playing with them.
Now I take longer and longer walks every day (walks are my favorite thing), I still eat, I sometimes go in a kennel but only if my foster parents are gone for a long time, I sleep in that cozy bed at night, I tried swimming but prefer floating in a tube, and I spend my day looking for tummy rubs. I just like to chill and occasionally bark at the computer printer. I am potty trained, and I play with toys on occasion but I am not destructive.
Foster mom says I will need to stay slim and right now I am about 59 pounds. Whoever adopts me will need to be able to pick me up to get me in a high SUV or truck (or a high bed). I am looking for my forever home so I can have that happy ending that I so deserve. Who knows… maybe it is your lucky day and you will get to call me your forever dog. Hey, don’t forget to check out my new video before you leave!
Rayne - 2.3 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 65 lbs - Available now
Hi. I’m Rayne. I’m a beautiful black Lab who loves to snuggle. My foster mom says I’m super sweet. I’m house-trained and perfectly behaved while she’s away at work. I earned free run of the house my first day at my foster home (that's how well-behaved I am.) I am dog friendly, people friendly and lap friendly! My foster mom is working on things like my leash training, sit and socializing. I am a very shy girl who just wants to know that I can trust you.
Now my foster mom has some stuff to add below!
Rayne will probably be best in a home with another dog that she can bond with. She has made great progress on warming up to her foster mom but will need love and patience to give her the chance to trust again. It seems that Rayne has never been played with and does not know what a ball or a toy is for. I am sure she would love to learn all that with a patient loving family.
Rayne has a very sweet temperament and once she is yours, you won't find a sweeter dog that just wants to be a part of the family. Who is going to step up for this great girl, give her a little time to get settled in and then be happy they did!
Bucky - 1.8 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 65 lbs - Heartworm negative -Avail now
Meet Bucky! Bucky is a handsome black Lab. Bucky loves playing ball, being active and enjoys interaction with other dogs. However, he would prefer to have you all to himself and says he likes cousins better than brothers and sisters! That's because Bucky really loves his humans! Bucky sometimes likes to try to be in charge, but just remind him you’re the Alpha and he will do great! He will require consistency in his training but he has a bright future. He has the look of wanting to please in his beautiful eyes! And after all, he just wants you and your approval!!
Bucky just came from training camp so he has some commands under his belt and is ready to show you and improve. If you have an active lifestyle, are athletic, and are looking for someone to be active with, Bucky will fit right in and should thrive! He is crate trained, neutered and up to speed on all his shots. Bucky is good on a leash but can be fearful in new situations and will require a slow introduction. Bucky will add fun and love to the perfect family! Bucky is probably a little too interested in cats, if you happen to have them in your home.
Lorenzo - 3.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 70 lbs - Available now
Lorenzo is a high energy, pretty boy with all the traits of a great Labrador. He is my constant companion and loves to hang out with people all day (just in case you have a treat, are willing to pet or want to play). He is big, playful, and kinda goofy.
He has learned basic commands (sit) and walks well on a leash. He likes playing with his toys and playing tug, but is still learning that pillows are not in his toy collection. I'm very happy to say he gets along well with other dogs but I am not sure if he likes to swim yet. He is very food and toy motivated, but is a bit hard headed. This guy likes to cuddle, give a few kisses and get belly rubs.
His perfect family would be an active family willing to spend time playing and exercising with him. He still has quite a bit of puppy left in him, is very athletic and likes to explore. I think with a seasoned owner willing to train him, he will be a great family pet.
Khalua - 2.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male - 55 lbs. - Available now
Hello I’m Khalúa!
I am handsome Chocolate Lab! with shiniest and softest coat you will ever see and I am smart! I am house trained and love to play with my toys! I sleep all thru the night (I sleep in my crate), but if I hear something, I will let you know - no need for a security alarm, I’m on alert! I recently came from training camp were there were several other dogs, we got along great! Even though I’ve been to training camp, I still need to keep brushed up on my manners, so we will need to continue to work on that! But that’s cool...it’s fun bonding time! The training camp lady also had two children, I did fine with them. I love to play ball and be active! My foster mom has another foster dog and we get along great! We like to play fetch, play chase and wrestle with each other! I am not a finicky eater and I don’t mind thunderstorms! I could be in a family with another dog or I would be cool being a solo boy just hanging with my new family! I have a lot to offer, I can’t wait to join the perfect family!
Hennessy - 10.1 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 36.8 lbs. -
Hennessy's foster has met the requirements to foster fail and adopt. He will be moved directly to Adoption pending.
Sylvester - 4.2 Month Old Male
Intital Intake Information: Black - Male - 15 lbs. - Available Date Early November
Rueger - 2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 87 lbs - Heartworm negative- Est available is early/mid Nov
Rueger expresses the word “gentle giant” in every sense of the phrase. He is not even two and one of the sweetest and most polite doggies we’ve ever been around. He is 100% potty trained, loves his crate and new bed and will not jump or get on furniture. Rueger loves to play fetch outside and his teeth and bite are so tender when he plays “keep away” with you when you try to get the ball from his mouth!
He has met a few strangers, and he has been so friendly to all of them. He would also be great with children of all ages. He cuddled right up to our 10-month old nephew and was very calm. He let the baby pat his head and pull his hair, and within a few short minutes, Rueger was snoozing on the blanket next to the baby!
The ONLY area he may need a little work is on his leash. He’s very calm when you are just walking, but when he sees other people (especially dogs), he wants to GO! This is the primary thing we will continue to practice so he will be improved in this area by the time he’s ready to go to his forever home.
We really cannot say enough good things about this sweet and gentle boy. He is currently snoozing by my feet ... as I'm sure he will when he is yours.
