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 + State Tax. The adoption fee for puppies (6 months and under) is $375 + State Tax.
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.

Jefferson - 4.1 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 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. Jefferson loves other dogs and is very social. He has great manners, is really good on a leash (which is important for a big guy) and is a great walker for an active family. He has good energy and enjoys keeping up with others, but has an off switch and loves to chill as well. Jefferson loves car rides and just being with his people and being the big goofball that he is!
*This dog may not meet the breed standard for a Labrador Retriever.
Tigger - 1.5 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 75 lbs - Avail now
Tigger is a very handsome young Lab! He loves to play, he's sweet, and will snuggle. Tigger is very energetic! He knows a quite a bit but also needs reinforcement. He is a lot of fun and a lot of dog. He’s crate trained and does well in the crate but there are also times when he will bark for about 15 minutes before settling. He’s good on the leash as long as you are vigilant when approaching other dogs as he gets excited and needs reminders to heel. His exuberant personality would likely not pair well with young kids (under six) as he could easily knock them down.
Tigger would do best where someone is home most of the time while he learns to relax when you leave.
Buddie - 1.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male - 78 lbs - Heartworm Negative- Mid Nov
Bucee - 3.3 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male - 73 lbs - Avail late Sept
Bucee here and checking in with all future adopters. My foster mom says I’m suppose to tell you all about myself so here goes...
I am a handsome boy who is single and ready to mingle! My foster mom might say my manners need work but I prefer to say I'm happy, always excited to see you and young - I think you get the gist.
I finished up my Heartworm treatment so I’m getting to do lots of fun stuff like walks, which my foster mom says I’m getting better at, playing with my foster brothers and toys - I love playing with toys! I like cats too - but the word is I like them too much - so cats are off limits for me. My counter surfing skills are pretty good but that is frowned upon around here so I’m learning new skills to take its place. I am crate trained, although I do protest just in case you fall for my sad eyes, but I easily give in and take a good nap. My foster mom lets me sleep on a comfy bed beside her all night, the rule is if I stay I don’t have to go to my crate. So of course I do just that, best 8 hours of beauty sleep a guy could ever have! I have learned to use the doggy door and have had no accidents since I learned you just walk through it (for a bit I thought barking at it was the secret password - that did not work).
I’m excited to meet my furever family.. I would do best with a family who is patient and willing to continue working on my manners. According to my foster mom I’m a fast learner, I just have a lot to learn since no one taught me before being rescued by these pawesome people! I do have a special request, I’m a cuddle bug and would love a family that wants lots of chocolate lab cuddles. My favorite place is right beside my people.
Seatle - 8.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 84 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available date - Late Sept/Early Oct
I ended up in the shelter after being found running around on a rural road. I was covered in fleas and was glad to have somewhere to go. They fell in love with me at the shelter because I am such a good, sweet guy and now the guys at DFW Lab Rescue are going to find me a forever home!
They say I'm a senior – but please, don’t let that stop you from considering me. I am calm and easy going – none of that crazy energy those young dudes have! I can “Sit” and we are working on those other commands but I have gotta tell you though that “Stay” is really tough because I just want to be with my people all the time. I love all kinds of affection and being close. I will be a great dog for someone who is looking for a companion to snuggle up with. As long as we are together, I am one happy, happy boy.
I am looking for my new home and hoping my Forever Family will show up soon. If you think I might be the guy for you, just let the folks at DFWLR know!
Orlie - 3.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 73 lbs - Heartworm positive - Est available Mid Nov
Joy-ous - 4.7 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female 50 lbs - Heartworm positive - Est available mid-late November
Joy-ous is a wonderful little Lab who deserves the best! This sweet mama has maintained a gentle personality and loving eyes after her rough start in life. She loves being with her Lab foster siblings, and is gentle and happy with humans of all ages and sizes. She is house broken and crate trained, and walks pretty well on a leash— a little zig-zaggy, but she doesn’t pull. Thankfully, no prey drive, so she can be trusted with our guinea pigs and chickens. She does not react to storms (and boy, we have had some big ones!). Joy-ous is a little nervous in the car, but with time and exposure, she will adjust. She loves treats and toys, but isn't really into fetching or swimming. Joy-ous will be a wonderful addition to the lucky family who comes her way!
Jaxx - 2.3 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Info: Black - Male - 67 lbs. Heart worm Negative Est. Available Date Mid Nov
Jaxx is super sweet and very smart, he is housebroken, crate trained, he knows how to use a doggy door, though at his current foster home there isn’t a doggy door. He knows how to sit and wait for treats. Jaxx enjoys his daily walks, though he is very excited at first he does calm down quickly and is good on a leash. He occasionally jumps up on people, but has gotten better as we have been working on that. He also tends to eat very fast, has a great appetite!
Jaxx is very friendly, he loves everyone he meets, be it human, dog or cat. He is great with young kids, very patient and puts up with a lot. He is not a barker and so far, very seldom does he bark. He loves attention and to be loved on. If you think Jaxx is your guy - put him on your list and we'll see if we can make that love connection!
Dalton - 3.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male - 79.2 lbs - Avail Now
Dalton is the perfect family dog with lots a play in him. He's very sweet, cuddly & just oh so loving. He really enjoys being a part of everything and will follow me around everywhere. He is great with kids & other dogs. However, Dalton is not good with cats. Dalton's ideal family would be an active one that would take him on long walks and who loves to play - another dog would be great as he is happy to have a buddy to hang out with. He does like to chase his tail and is super cute doing it!
Anyone would be happy to have this sweet guy become a part of their family. Who is looking for a choclate love bug?
Gage - 9 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 63 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available Early Nov
Gage is a handsome, friendly, loving pup, that is always on the move with lots of energy! He is crate, and potty trained. We are continuously working on his reaction to play with other dogs on his walk, other than that he does well on leash. Chewing is one of his favorite past times, so toys are a must! He is especially a fan of Crocs shoes. He enjoys running and playing with other dogs and humans and hasn’t met another creature he didn’t like. He is curious about the cat and the horses next door, when he is not chasing the frogs and crickets that hop around in the back yard. Gage has rather long legs and jumps up to greet with sweet kisses when his foster parents arrive home for the day. He can be vocal when he is not getting his way, but with some obedience classes he will be an excellent four-legged family member. He is a very intelligent and is a fast learner.

Arista is a very sweet and playful girl with the most beautiful black coat. She's super smart and already knows sit (before she gets her meals) and sleeps quietly in her crate at night. She loves to run and play and would do best in a home with other dogs to have fun with. Arista is all puppy with a heart of gold and hasn't met a stranger! She loves to cuddle and give kisses and loves to be right with her humans, she will make a wonderful member to a very lucky family.
Kelce - 4.1 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Info: Black - Male - 80 lbs. Heartworm Negative. Est. Available Date - now!
Hello my adoring fans. Kelce here to fill you in on my fantastic self, but first a short history. I was found running around with Kady and it's possible I may have been a very bad dog and we now have 9 adorable puppies. Those days are long behind me though. Now I am living in this foster home place and loving the good life. I have learned that the bathroom is outside thank you very much. I know how to sit and shake your hand. I sleep on a soft dog bed in my foster parents room at night. I like to nap on the couch or on a dog bed or pretty much anywhere. I am crate trained, but I have been left out for an hour or two with my 3 lab foster brothers and I have been a good boy. OK… there was ONE time that I snatched a piece of bread from a sandwich but in my defense, the sandwich was left on the table unattended, I am a dog and I love food so I ate it (and if given the chance, I may do it again!)
I have learned that I love to run and play. It makes me happy. I am still learning how to walk on a leash and not try to chase those pesky squirrels. I love stuffed toys and I don’t hurt them. But the thing that I love the most is just being loved and petted and adored - that is my favorite thing.
I am ready for my forever home so my foster mom made a video of me that you can find right on this page. Check it out and who knows, I may meet you later! https://youtu.be/TSgwr7OOyV8
Hershee - 2.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male 71 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available Early/Mid Nov
Hershee is a very handsome and sweet young lab. He loves to play with toys, go for walks and be with his people. He is crate trained, house broken and plays well with other dogs. For a young lab he has a great disposition in the house and is not too rowdy. Hershee is currently working on his leash skills as we pulls a little during his walks. Once he gets going he settles in quite nicely. Hershee loves to cuddle, play tug and EAT. Hershee would do great in a home that can offer him some additional training (leash training and not jumping when greeting people) and give him plenty of opportunity to play and get exercise.
Bowie - 1.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 43 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available early November
Looking for companion that loves to give kisses, is treat motivated (fast learning), ready to please small boy? Bowie is a pretty calm boy for only 1 year. He will wait for outside play time or play by his self, if needed. He is very trustworthy in the house when left, but is also crate trained if that is what you prefer.
Bowie is just starting to learn to retrieve and enjoys playing ball. He also enjoys playing with the resident dogs. Bowie will be on the small size but is the perfect size for cuddle time. He is housetrained, crate trained, has no anxiety to storms, takes treats gently and sits on command. This guy is just a true sweetheart of a boy. He will make the perfect companion for anyone.
With winter coming in, who needs a little extra fur to help them stay warm?
