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.

Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 84lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available Mid/Late Feb
Tucker is the perfect buddy. He is sweet, tolerant, friendly to all dogs, cats and humans and loves head scratches. He has the best personality and the most expressive eyebrows!! He thinks he is a lap dog and his favorite place is with his head in your lap on the couch. Tucker likes to play chase in the backyard with his two westie brothers and just goes with the flow. He is mature for his age and the easiest boy to take care of. He loves to ride in the car and stick his head out the window for the full effect, has never met a stranger and is a total love bug. Tucker is great with children and never growls or snaps. He is not particularly food driven but he will tell you when it's dinner time and he does loves his treats!!
Tucker really is the perfect boy plus so handsome!!
Morrie - 6 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 106 lbs - Heartworm negative - availalbe now
Well darn, I came into the rescue program two years ago because I was a true rescue that got lost. I was very lucky to find a good home and thought it was forever; I did not expect my owner to get ill and have to surrender me back into the program. Bad for me but good for anyone looking for a laid back good lab like me. I am good with all other dogs, love the little kids, don’t jump on anyone and best of all you can trust me in the house alone. If you have to be gone eight hours that’s just eight hours of good sleep for me. I am house trained, very well on the leash, love to ride in the back seat of the car, and I prefer to be able to look out. Am I the perfect lab, well my foster says almost? My sweet little old lady I lived with feed me everything she ate and then some, as a result I am over weight. I am on a very strict diet but the good news is l like green beans and carrots. Just got back from the vet today and in one week I have lost six pounds. Another twenty and I will back at my playing weight. You see I love to play fetch but as of now it is long walks and diet.
I am still a very good looking lab that needs no training, everybody loves me and I just need someone to love back.
Hardie - 2.2 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Info: Black - male - 84 lbs. Est. Available now
Hi there fans,
I know you are all wondering why my handsome self has been hanging around so long. “Coming Soon” Well.... I have to admit, I came in a bit rude so the rescue sent me off to boarding/charm school. I will say, not bragging but, I am doing amazing. I have never had a mean bone in my body. I have this leash walking thing down to a science. All those commands no problem! Have a treat?
After all this time I am ready to find my perfect home. I want my new owner to be interested in continuing my training. We have some private lessons I bring along so we can learn more together. I’m the biggest kid ever that my foster dad says I act more like a 6 month old puppy - so you haven’t missed anything! Don’t let my size fool you either, I’m very quick and light on my paws. I have no problem laying my head on your lap one minute and playing with you the next. Sometimes I even try to get you to play by lightly putting my mouth on your hand. Either way I’m always ready to go to bed when its time and really enjoy staying in my dog bed all night in the bedroom till the alarm clock tells me it’s time to get up. I even understand the meaning (not purpose) of the snooze button. If exercise is your thing? Great!! I simply cannot get enough. If not, I’ll make sure you enjoy it with me.
There is no doubt that I will be the most amazing companion you will ever have at your side. So let’s meet soon so we can talk with the rescue about us being a family. Looking forward to meeting you soon.
Boyle - 5.5 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male -79 lbs - Heartworm Negative - Est available date mid/late Feb
Boyle is a great dog. He fit in very quickly to the pace of our home and in particular likes hanging out and sleeping with one of our teenaged boys. He will be a great pet and companion. While he gets along with other dogs and although I think he would really do well where he is an “only dog”, he is also socialable and friendly.
Boyle likes to retrieve tennis balls but does not like doing it endlessly. He has plenty of energy but is not at all hyper like many Labs. He has great manners and knows the basic commands. This dog does not really need to be in a kennel but can and will kennel on command. Boyle is best with children 10 years old and older.
Caballero - 6.5 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 76 lbs - Heartworm negative - Avail now
My name is Caballero (it’s Spanish for gentleman), and I’m a fun-loving guy looking for my forever family! I love long walks, back scratches and taking naps near my people. I have a heart of gold. I walk well on a leash, and even know how to shake with both paws, sit and lay down. My start to life was not that great; I was kept outside and most days had to fight for my food. Because of that, I developed some bad habits they call resource-guarding. I’ve been working really hard to learn new manners and coping skills, and I’ve even been evaluated by a professional trainer. They say I am super intelligent, and learn quickly. I need a family that can commit to helping me continue to learn that I no longer have to worry about food, water and a safe place to lay my head. Once I love and trust you, that will last forever! I will do best in a home with no other dogs, and no young children. 2020 is shaping up to be such a great year! Are you the family that will make it the happiest year of my life?
Bexar - 7.2 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Info: Black - Male - 81 lbs. Heartworm Negative. Available now.
Bexar is a handsome, healthy guy who is looking for a forever home. He was lost from his last home & they were not able to reconnect. But that’s ok because he has moved on with a good attitude & love in his heart. He is housebroken, has good house manners (no puppy shenanigans) and is good with other dogs (and maybe cats). He doesn’t look his estimated age as his little bit of gray is not that noticeable. He still has lots of life, love & devotion to give to a new family.
Wynter - 8.2 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female 56 lbs- Heartworm negative- Available now.
My name is Wynter and I’m a senior yellow female labrador. My foster moms’ friends and family remark on my sweet, loving temperament and how they want to take me home, but she won’t let them! She keeps telling me that DFW Lab Rescue will find me the perfect home. I think her friends like my qualities of being quiet, housebroken and crate trained along with my skill of keeping the backyard free of rabbits and squirrels. Plus, I love to snuggle!!
Like all seniors (dog and human) I’m starting to have some achy joints. I have arthritis in my left knee and early signs of hip dysplasia. The vet says that case management is the best approach; keeping me lean (did I mention I love food), minimize high impact activity, massages, glucosamine supplements, and pain medication. I need daily short walks to help with flexibility in the joints, as well as strengthening of the muscles around the joints, but you can do this in the backyard if you want.
If you are willing to invest in my wellness, I will give you unconditional love and companionship in return. My foster mom says I’m a great dog and she feels there is a special family that will provide me the love and security I am longing for.
Murphee - 11.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 64 lbs - Heartworm negative- Available now.
Things were looking pretty bleak for me when my family took me to the shelter on December 22, 2019. Not my idea of a fun Christmas. But I was one lucky boy when the good folks at DFW Lab Rescue decided to pick me up. They say I am kind of an old guy, but Foster Mom says I sure don’t act like it! I am sweet, sweet, sweet, house trained, walk well on a leash, ride well in the car, and like all people and dogs. But man, the “Joy Meter” goes up though when someone brings out a tennis ball. My, oh my, I do love retrieving those balls. But I also know my manners. I sit before the ball is thrown, bring it back and drop it at your feet, and sit for you to do it again. Oh, I also know “sit” and “stay” (although that last one is pretty hard when one of those yellow balls is involved).
I will be great for someone who likes to go for walks, throw the yellow ball for me, then come home and snuggle. I love all kinds of affection and being close. 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 DFW Lab Rescue know!
Harlowe - 3.1 Year Old Female
Initial Intake Info: Yellow - Female - 87 lbs. Heart worm negative - avaialble now
Hey there, thanks for stopping by to check me out. My name is Harlowe and I LOVE to play with all my toys. My favorite toys are my rope and tennis ball. I enjoy my crate time since it gives me a chance to recharge for when my foster parents get home. I enjoy daily walks with my foster mom, but I still get overly excited when I see those pesky squirrels, but we work on that every day. I sure hope my forever family is an active one since I enjoy my playtime outside. I love people and can get a little too excited when I see them, though my foster mom says with a little training I will be good. I am not sure what “training” means but if it means I get to be around humans more I am up for it. I like lounging in the house after I have had some time to get all my wiggles out. My foster mom says I am a “great dog and will make some family very lucky.” I sure can’t wait to meet that lucky family.
Downey - 7.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information:Yellow (Red Fox) Male - 79 lbs - Heartworm negative - Available now!!
Howdy folks. I’m Downey. I have beeen with my foster family a week and I like it here. There are so many things to do! I love to hang out in the yard to watch cheeky squirrels. Or I just hang out on the sofa or in the kitchen, close to my foster people. Foster mom says I’m a darn good looking boy with my fox red coat and amber colored eyes. She is also impressed by my good manners. I don’t jump up, I don’t counter surf, I eat my food very sweetly, take treats gentle, know shake, sit and some other commands. Foster sister can’t get enough of my hugs and shakes and foster dad liked me sleeping right beside his bed in a big cozy doggie bed and snoring happily. I met already the grandparents and other friends and am very gentle and friendly with everyone I meet. I might sit close to you when you eat. You never know if you need some help and I don’t mind some extra snacks.
I like my furry brothers and sister. We have teamed up chasing squirrels, taking sun baths and listening to what’s happening behind the fence. We all show off our barking voice, (mine is full and deep) just in case someone unauthorized is walking around. I’ll sit in front of the patio door, when I need to go out to do my business. Foster mom says I'm pretty much perfect and that I’m perfect car company! I lay down and enjoy the ride.
I can’t wait to meet some of you folks.
Note from Downey’s foster mom:
Downey is such a gentle, friendly and calm sweetheart. He is handsome inside and out! He is very well mannered, is trustworthy roaming free in the house and likes being around people. He has no problem with other dogs (don’t know about cats though, but wouldn’t be surprised if he likes these too) and is simply a kind soul. Downey will occasionally take a toy and engage a bit in playing, but his main focus is being close to his people, roaming the yard, sitting at the front windows and hanging out on the sofa. Downey is a bit on the skinny side, so we will take care of him gaining hopefully some weight.

Reid - 2.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male - 71 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available mid Feb
Hi! I'm Reid and I'm looking for my furever family. I'm a lean and handsome chocolate hunk of lab. You'll always see me with a smile on my face, a tennis ball in my mouth and a hop to my step. I'm crate trained and have mastered a few common skills. I am still working on my jumping and walking on a leash, but my foster parents say I'm a quick learner. If you're looking for your next best friend to play fetch and give lots of pets to, I'm your guy!
P.S. I'm still undecided about other dogs, so I'll probably do best in a home where all attention is on me!
Cashe - 2.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male - 75 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available Late Feb
If you are looking for a laid back and quiet lab, then Cashe is for you!! Cashe was accepted into our existing two dog pack (both DFW Alum) very quickly because of his playful and easy going personality. Cashe was an owner surrender. We give the prior owner “kudo’s” for the training provided. Cashe knows basic commands, is potty trained, leash trained and shows no food or toy aggression. He also goes into his crate with very little coaxing. We cannot say enough about Cashe and his awesome personality. He was introduced to our two cats and he is curious, but we feel in time he would be able to co-exist with them. He is particularly fond of the pool and is hoping for a family that will allow him to continue to swim.
Thank you for getting to know Cashe. He is an exceptional foster and looks forward to meeting his forever family. We guarantee this chocolate teddy bear will win your heart like he has ours.
Fayette - 2.3 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female Puppy - Estimated available date late Feb
Need your hair chewed on, maybe your face licked, or even your shoestrings untied? Well I am a pro at doing those things and more.
Hi, I'm Fayette. I am a sweet little doll that likes to be held and loved on. I enjoy my little yellow ducky, that I have to keep away from my brothers. The big resident dogs scare me sometimes when they start barking, but I am slowly getting comfortable with the one they call “grandma”. I am working hard on this housetraining thing that foster mom keeps telling me that I need to learn. I know I mentioned untying shoestrings but I am learning to leave those items alone. I am almost ready to cuddle with my forever family.
Old, young, tall, short, I would love any of those things to hold me, love me and teach me the most important things in the dog world that I need to
know. Do you have a little yellow ducky for me?
Navarro - 2.3 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male Puppy - Estimated available date late Feb
Navarro is an adorable little go getter. He enjoys exploring the huge yard and trying to keep up with the bigger resident dogs even if he has to put on the brakes, or just playing with his siblings and toys. Navarro is learning the ins and outs of potty training. He will whine when he needs to go out. He isn’t a
fan of being isolated from others, but really what Lab does? Navarro will be a blessing in any home especially one where someone is home to help with his housetraining and continued teaching of proper house etiquette.
Kaufman - 2.3 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male Puppy - Estimated available date late Feb
Kaufman is a layed back boy who enjoys playing, cuddling up, and giving kisses. This cutie pie is learning his p’s and q’s while getting this housetraining nailed down. He has shown that he knows to go outside, but will continue to need encouragement to complete his training. He can be a little shy when it comes to the rumbustious resident dogs. Would do best with a calm dog if there was one in the home.
Kaufman will truly be a prize for any family.
Thompson - 7.5 Year Old Male

Kody - 3.2 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Notes: Chocolate - Male - 87 lbs. Heartworm positive. Est. Avail. Date early Feb.

His basic training is coming along well; sits for treats and meals, leash manners improve with every walk, crate trained, house trained and eager for his forever family to teach him new tricks. He does fancy himself a food critic so keep the counters clear!!!
Kody is always ready for an adventure but is just as happy with cuddles on the couch. So if you are looking for an all around nice guy, Kody is it!! Treat him like the treasure he is and this boy will return the love ten-fold.

Reece - 1.1 Year Old Male

Reece is a sweet playful male that gets along with his four legged foster brothers and loves all people. He loves to fetch - balls, toys, bones.. well anything you toss to him. He is working on being house trained. He is one of the smartest dogs I have seen, but needs basic puppy training 101. He loves to chew on bones and toys, and will be quite content laying at your feet with one of his favorite chew toys. He does well in the crate and is learning to walk on the leash. He does love his walks with the rest of the pack.
Reece is looking for his forver family - could that be you?
Kiki - 7.1 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female 36 lbs - Heartworm negative - Available now.
Kiki is young black female. She is petite, sweet, and gentle. She loves to snuggle. She doesn’t love her crate, but she stops fussing when left alone after about 5 minutes. She isn’t mouthy and hardly even chews on toys. She loves to play fetch, chase, and tug of war. She is housetrained and gets along great with our dogs, one of which is usually grouchy with fosters. Kiki does love to be on the couch (we allow it) and probably will claim your bed if you allow it (we don’t). So far she hasn’t barked at people walking by the house at all. Cats are unknown.
Kiki will be available to meet families mid-Feb. Don’t miss out on this sweetie!

Hello Everyone - my name is Kobee. I’m a shy little boy who once warms up to you has lots of love to give. I love everyone including kids and babies.

I will be looking for my forever home soon so if you are interested in me please let the adoptions team know!
Giggi - 4.9 Month Old Female
Initial Intake Info: Yellow - Female - 24.6 lbs. Est. Avail. Date mid/late Feb
Hello all - my name is Giggi. I am a loving girl who is shy for just a little bit but as soon as I warm up it’s all fun and games from there. I love to jump around and run around. I currently have a two year old kid I chase when he’s running and like to play with. I am my brother's best friend and help him warm up to others. I love to snuggle on my foster couch with toys and blankets and nap. I will be your best friend as I grow and I also do well with other dogs.
Seda - 2 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female 90 lbs - Heartworm negative - Available now
This sweet girl was well cared for in her prior life. How she ended up being an unclaimed stray in a shelter is puzzling. Seda is completely house broken and while she can crate, she does not need to unless she has access to food on your counters. See she’s a bit overweight and is on a diet accepting her carrot and apple treats joyously. This girl has yet to meet a stranger and is particularly fond of children. Cats appear to be new to her. She is curious and not sure why they run away. Since she does not have a high prey drive, proper safe introduction should work. While Seda is a little bit chubby, she loves to run in the yard and plays well with other dogs with toys and by herself if her foster siblings are all asleep. She has quickly become a fan of the dog door loving the independence it is giving her to her business check things out at will. Her leash manners are decent but, like most younger dogs, can always use some brushing up. Seda is super affectionate and with those soft brown eyes who can resist her? When we are outside in the yard she is our shadow.
If you are interested in meeting Seda please let adoptions know that Seda sounds the perfect addition to your family.
