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 $275. The adoption fee for puppies (6 months and under) is $350.
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.

Sunshine - 9.3 Year Old Female
Hi everyone! I’m Sunshine, but my foster mom calls me baby girl because I’m so adorable. They tell me I’m 9 years old, but I don’t know what they are talking about, I think I’m 5. My favorite thing in the whole wide world is playing ball. I make it really easy on you, you can just bounce it off the wall and I will catch it and bring it back to you! It’s so fun!
I love to be inside and just be with you whenever I can. I love my foster mom, but I love my dad even more, he stays home with me a lot and we get to hang out. I have proven to be great in the house and have never touched anything that wasn’t mine. I did try counter surfing once, but I got in trouble, so I don’t do that anymore. I will sleep in your bed if you let me, but my foster parents don’t like this, so they taught me to sleep in my own bed.
I barked a lot when I first came, I was nervous and frustrated. Now, I rarely bark cause I’m so comfy in my foster home. I need an extra special family, who will love me a lot. I have allergies, so I need special care, and I may be allergic to cats, so no cats. I want someone who will give me exercise and play ball with me. I’m really a good dog, just need lots of love.
From the foster parents: Sunshine needs good structure and boundaries. She is well behaved, but may challenge you at first. She know sit, stay, down, drop it, “NO”, and takes food from your hand gently. (She does not always take the ball so gently though, she gets really excited). She would do better with a family without small children.
Kent - 3.5 Year Old Male
Who wants a BIG wet kiss? Come on, I know you do! We could have some cuddle time too. I like to stay close to my human when possible. In my last home I had to stay in a crate 10-12 hours a day. I’m looking forward to not doing THAT anymore! I have done very well not being crated. No shoes, cords or furniture for me, only dog toys. I am a very laid back boy, but who also would love to go on runs or have a nice walk. A Kong squeaky ball has become a favorite of mine. I can even play some Frisbee, but need more practice with that.
I give chase to anything that moves, so a cat wouldn’t make a good playmate, but another dog sure would. I like to be the keeper of the dog toys, so any ropes or other long toy that can be shared would work best. I love to play tug with my foster brother. I should also be fed separately.
Speaking of food, I’m a Lab, and Labs love food! I am learning that without food left on the counter/table, I have no reason to put my feet up there and take a taste of the yummy morsel. As much as I love my humans, I do prefer older children, not those little ones!
When I find my forever home, that will be a dream come true!
Ksogi - 7.6 Year Old Male
Hi! My name is Ksogi or "King" as my foster family calls me. They think I must have been a hunting or retrieving dog so it has taken some time for me to get used to city living. I'm catching on though!
I really like to play with my foster dog brother and I do not seem to have any interest in cats. There is a 9 year old real boy who lives here too and he has a stuffed animal collection. I would love to eat them if I could just get in his room. I should probably not be with small kids because I love my toys too much to share!
I discovered this big cement pond in the backyard and it is fun to jump in and swim on a hot summer day. My foster parents dry me off after my swim with warm towels. This new life is good! I am a bit on the skinny side – I need to gain a few pounds. I love to go for walks and I love to be petted and be around people.
I am looking for someone who has some patience and is willing to work with me. Add me to your list so you can come see me!
Graham - 6.4 Year Old Male
Graham is very sweet and calm; well suited to an indoor lifestyle. He does like to play outside and chase/run. He loves to chase mockingbirds in our yard. He is very gentle with kids and likes to cuddle and will sit quietly with small children while they play on the floor. He has gotten on very well with our older Lab and our Basset Hound who is a bit of a handful, so I would say he is a good match for a household with other dogs.
He had some teeth problems, but he can eat regular food and is a very happy, positive dog. When we first got him he didn't make any sounds and was very timid and scrawny, but he has put on weight well, and his coat is filling in nicely. He will bark a little when excited, so he is getting to be a normal Lab again.
Margot - 1.3 Year Old Female
Margot is a calm, friendly girl who loves to give kisses. She is currently getting settled with her foster family, so please check back as she will be available for adoption soon.
Spooky - 1.6 Year Old Male
Spooky is a super sweet and lovable guy! He is goofy, fast, smart and typical in lots of ways for a 1.5 year old guy. On walks, he's curious and fairly courteous. Improving quickly, with more time, he will be excellent walking and/or running with someone who wants an active dog.
He gets along great with other dogs and isn't easily scared. He startles occasionally, but his reactions are typical and not at all over the top. He would be great with kids as he doesn't jump or isn't too rough when playing. He likes toys - all toys - so he will need lots of "approved" things to chew on.
Spooky sits nicely and is learning not to counter surf. He's tall and the bathroom counters and bathtub rims are areas of real interest, particularly eating the bubbles from a bubble bath! He makes ready use of the doggie door when nature calls and, after only one incident the first day, has been perfect in his “potty” habits.
He likes to run so a secure leash is a must outside of a contained area. Did I say he's fast? He is fast!
Selinda - 4.1 Year Old Female
My name is Selinda and I am a very friendly and energetic lady that is very happy to be around people and I like to play a lot! I am perfectly behaved in the house and am house trained but do get a bit jealous about my food. My foster only has older kids and I am great with them. I do need a bit of work on my walking on a leash but I am getting better every day.
I ride nicely in the car but am a little nervous especially going to new places, but once I feel secure I do great.
Mufasa - 3.1 Year Old Male
Greetings to my loyal followers. I am Mufasa, King of the Lions… oh no, wait a minute. There must be a mistake. I am not a Lion, I am a Lab. A handsome yellow male Lab. I could be Mufasa, King of the Labs instead though. I like the sound of that!
Ok, you can call me Mufasa or you can call me Moose. My foster parents call me that too. I am about 3 years old and as stated before, I am a handsome fellow. I had a bit of a tough road after the DFW Lab people decided to make sure there were no little Simba’s running around the house because of me. I am all healed and ready to find my forever home.
I have two Lab foster brothers and a foster cat that I get along great with. So far I am not a fan of being in a kennel. We are working on this but it just reminds me of bad things. I do sleep on a pillow in the bedroom at night. I am house trained, learning some tricks and even though I was in pain, I never growled or got upset with my foster parents. I love my stuffed animals and nylabones but I am always gentle with them.
All I want for Christmas is a forever home that will love me and treat me like the king I was meant to be!
Creighton - 1.1 Year Old Male
Hi! My name is Creighton, but my foster mom (FM) has been calling me No. 9. I’m about a year old and FM says I’m the easiest foster she’s had so far. She says I’m very mature for my age. I’m really laid back, but I still like to have some fun. My favorite things to do with FM are play tug-of-war and keep-away with my toys. Sometimes I’ll let go and let her throw it so I can run and get it and bring it back, like a good retriever should. She says I’m really sweet with a cute and fun personality. I’m good on the leash, ride well in the car, and love playing with my kitty roommate. I’m not mouthy at all, so I’m really good with kids. And I don’t jump up on people, which FM says is a really good thing. I’m potty trained and will stay in a crate when I need to, although I’d rather be out with you as much as possible. I love cuddling up with FM on the bed at night. I can’t remember how I ended up in the shelter; I was picked up as a stray. I have a small scar on my head, so maybe that’s why I can’t remember! I’m still gorgeous though (at least that’s what I keep hearing the humans say)! FM says I must have belonged to a family once because I’m so good with people and I know sit and shake and I take treats gently. I don’t bark a whole lot, even when the crazy neighbor dogs are barking at me when I’m in the backyard. I love other dogs, even the little rat looking dog that lives here; she growls at me a lot, but FM says it’s just because she’s old and grumpy. FM says I would be perfect for any family…younger, older…anybody!
Dean - 5.1 Year Old Male
Dean has those big saucer-like eyes that make your heart melt. He is potty and crate trained and knows sit. He enjoys going for walks and is happy to snooze when not busy being doted on.
Halle - 6.7 Month Old Female
Russett - 10.2 Year Old Female
Some people want to adopt a specific kind of dog. Some people only want a puppy. Or only a yellow Lab. Or only a female. But that's not you. You're here, on this webpage for an entirely different reason. You came to DFW Lab Rescue because you want to make a difference in the life of a dog. You want to help the one that needs the most help. Your heart is huge and your mind is open. You don't care if the Lab is old, or sick, or has special needs. You love Labs so much that you want to change the world for a special dog. And that's why you need Russett. Russett is possibly the sweetest dog on earth. She loves to cuddle. She love hugs and kisses. Russett follows her people wherever they go so she can just hang out where they are. She's very calm and potty trained. But Russett is 10. Her family thought she was worn out. That she didn't have any fun left in her so they dumped her in the shelter. But they were wrong. Russett loves. Russett lives. Russett is awesome. Like any older lady, Russett loves to eat and nap. But she also really really loves her people. Kisses and cuddles are handed out abundantly when Russett is around. So if you would like to not only change the life of a very very special dog, but also make your heart swell with love and happiness, consider adopting this sweetheart. You'll be so very glad you did.
Newton - 5.7 Month Old Male
I am a 4-5 month old black male Labrador. I like to play hard with my foster sister Bonnie. I am your typically puppy but probably a little sweeter than most. I'm pretty good about ringing the bells to let my foster parents know when I need to go outside to potty or to play but you have to be quick to let me out! I love ice cubes and I also like to leave them on the kitchen floor to melt into a little puddle. I am looking for a forever home that will give me a lot of attention and will take me with them on family outings. I like other dogs and kids.
Jamal - 1.1 Year Old Male
Looking for a young pup that loves other dogs, is house and crate trained? I’m your dawg!!
Since I am still young and most of that time was on the mean streets, I am a little on the thin side and I get very excited when there is food around. I am still learning this strange thing called “house rules” but foster mom keeps her eagle eye on me.
Thanks to my foster brother, I am learning about how to retrieve. My favorite thing is playing with the other dogs. Foster mom even caught me trying to get the resident vet clinic cat to play. I would love to have a brother or sister to play with, but I can be a little much for an older dog right now.
I know you would make the perfect match for me!
Belladonna - 8.9 Month Old Female
Feel free to call me Bella. I know my name after all. My favorite activity of all time is to snuggle with you. I love to lay on the couch with you to watch TV. I love to come sit by your side and look into your eyes and tell you how much I love you. If you need to work in your office, just give me a dog bed near you and I will snooze while you do so.
I like all those other dogs just fine and we will play at the drop of a hat. I am going to bark out the play rules while we do so though. But don’t be alarmed, I wag my tail the entire time, somebody just has to set the rules you know!
I am a petite little girl and until you find the food I like to eat and I get comfortable with you, I will be a bit finicky in my eating. I also like to see what is on the counter or what you are fixing for dinner and my foster mom keeps telling me that is not allowed. She keeps everything out of my reach and says "off".
I am learning all the basic rules sit, off, no jump, walking on a leash, you know. The potty outside thing I have down though. We have a doggie door in our foster home and I go out whenever I want. When no one is home, I stay in the crate because after all I am a puppy and I still like to chew on stuff. But at night, I sleep in the dog bed in my foster mom’s bedroom with everyone else. Though I would really love to sleep in the bed with you. I am looking for my forever home and am hoping that Santa will help me there when he comes to bring us gifts.
