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.

Jezzy - 5 Year Old Female
Jezzy, aka Penny, is a sweet little lady. What she lacks in size is made up in her love for humans. She wants pets all day and loves to cuddle. Jezzy did not get along well with her last furry sibling so she joined our family. She may do best as an only dog. Jezzy has been very patient with my young children. During our nightly book time, Jezzy loves to jump into bed with our sons. She will lay at their feet as they fall asleep. Jezzy has been known as Penny around our house. She will respond to either. She is a very gentle and calm dog.
Trash cans beware though! Jezzy has been known to attack the evil buckets of trash while we are out of the house. Besides this easily fixable issue, she does great when left out. She is very well crate trained. She will not make a noise and goes into the crate on demand. With her sweetness comes a but of shyness. She seems to be afraid of going potty at night when its really dark unless she is by your side on a leash. When she does have to go she will go to the door. Jezzy has never had an accident inside.
If you would like a cute little cuddle buddy, Jezzy is your girl. She has a soft touch and will quickly have your heart.
Goofy - 2.9 Year Old Male
Just in case you are wondering, Goofy was my moniker when I was a puppy. The name just stuck but I have grown up since then. I love to go on walks and if you are a runner I'm sure I'll have no problem keeping up with you. Sometimes I get excited when I see others like me and I pull on the leash a little but I just want to meet everyone. When I get excited I jump but that's mostly when you first come home and I haven't seen you in a while. I'm only telling you that because I wouldn't want to hurt any little humans. My foster mom is teaching me not to do that so much and I am trying.
When it's time to settle down I can do that quite well. I love to be close by you so we can snuggle. You can pet me all you want and scratch me behind the ears. I love that! I would really like someone to be home with me more because I didn't get that much in my previous life. I did go to obedience school and I passed! I know sit, lay down, and go in the crate. One more thing, I really do not know about those cat thingies. I would chase them all over and maybe hurt one on accident. I would love to meet you. I have lots of love to give and I know we'd have lots of fun together.
Clementine - 3.4 Year Old Female
Hello! I'm Clementine. And I love cuddles. All kinds of cuddles. Couch cuddles. Bed cuddles. Floor cuddles. Lap cuddles. Any kind of cuddle you can think of. In fact, I'm wide open to any other cuddling ideas you may have. My foster parents say I'm pretty awesome. I'm very quiet. I'm housetrained. I'm good in my kennel. I don't jump up on people or counter surf. I'm also good on a leash. I don't know very many commands, but that's OK because I'm so laid-back I don't really need them. Oh! I almost forgot. I am also a most excellent napper. I am fantastic at napping anywhere anytime. If I lay down, you could probably be sure that you will be hearing my snores in about 30 seconds. It doesn't matter where I am....on a dog bed...on the tile floor......or on the couch, I can take a nap there with ease. Unfortunately I am so good at napping that my foster mom thinks that's how I got a little chunky. We are working on it. I go on long walks every day and I'm on a bit of a diet. But I do still need to lose a few more pounds to look my best.
I know I sound totally perfect right? But there is one catch. I am a little bit afraid of new things. I get very uncomfortable around new people, new dogs, new children, etc. My perfect house would have no children under 18 in it all the time. Visiting kids like grandkids that I get to know well would be ok. But lots and lots of kids and noise would not work. I need a fairly quiet household. Lots of new people coming in and out all the time would not be the best for me. I do OK with other dogs that I know very well but I'm never going to like meeting new dogs very much. So if I had maybe one or two dog brothers or sisters that I got to know very well I would probably be OK, but I am not an ideal candidate for someone that wants to take their dog to the dog park every day. Also, if you had visiting family dogs that I got to know I'd be ok, but doggy daycare and dog parks aren't for me. But I DO act awesome walking on a leash when I see other dogs. I don't react at all. As long as I don't have to go meet them I just walk right on by. So, If you are looking for a Master cuddler and napper then I am definitely the dog for you. Woof!
Honey - 7.5 Year Old Female
Honey is a very laid back, big love bug. She is a "velcro dog" - she never wants to leave your side. She is sweet as can be and healthy for an older girl.
Ksogi - 7.4 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!
Marnie - 2.3 Year Old Female
Hi everyone - I have been with my foster Mom since the end of July and I love being loved. I like to be with my foster mom and we hang out all the time. She lets me sleep on the couch but I spend most of my quiet time on the floor. I like to cuddle up with her most of all when she gets on the floor with me. I love belly rubs too! I don't bark too often. I used to be very nervous around new people and used to pee a little bit when people came into the house - but I love to greet people now - no pee! I don't bark at the doorbell - even when the Fed-X guy comes to the door. I am quiet - I just want to say hi! I am housetrained - mostly. My foster mom is very good at making sure I go outside but I still don't really ask to go. There is a bell on the door - but I don't know why it is there. Foster Mom makes it ring before we go out but I just think it's loud. I am sensitive to loud noises, including voices, and I'm not a fan of sudden movements. I'm learning to accept the garage. There was a time when I would not get out of a car when it was in the garage. My foster mom is working with me and I am now able to get in and out of a car while it is in the garage - but the door needs to be open. I had heartworm treatment in early August and I am feeling much better now. I am great walking on a leash and love riding in the car to run errands. I would love to find my forever home with you.
*This dog may not meet the breed standard for a Labrador Retriever.
Catie - 1.6 Year Old Female
Hi, I’m Catie. I was found as a stray and my foster mom says I am a mystery dog. I think it’s pretty clear to her that I was not an inside dog in my previous life and she has worked really hard to help me adapt. She tells me over and over that she will feed me morning and night and that she will always come back to me. I take eating (and making sure that I’m going to be able to eat) pretty seriously. I'm learning that I can be left alone and my foster mom and I are really proud of the progress that I’ve made! I know when my foster mom is leaving the house that I go in my wire crate and I get this great toy, called a kong, filled with my favorite treats and some frozen peanut butter on top. I get so focused on licking the peanut butter and getting to the treats that I hardly notice when my foster mom leaves. That’s great progress from breaking out of my kennel the first time she left me alone. I thought she was never coming back! Now I’ve come to trust that she means it when she says she will always come back to me.
Trust in humans is big progress for me. And I’m hoping to find my forever home where that trust is never broken. I am super energetic and need to find an active family. Do you like to run? I’d love to go running with you. I like to look for bunnies though so I’ll need you to help me work on that. My foster mom has a swimming pool. I am still figuring out whether I really like the water or not. She’s also tried to introduce me to tennis balls and frisbees and those are just not my thing. I prefer stuffed animal and rope toys that I can toss and run around with on my own. And I love to chew on those big hard nylabones! My foster mom says I’ve been great about not chewing things that are not mine.
I’ve almost mastered potty training and I’ve learned that I can jingle the bells on the back door even when I just want to go outside for some sunshine. I need you to come outside with me though. I like you to always be nearby. I know sit and I’m learning stay. I need you to teach me the rest of the tricks. I’m learning to hang out with other dogs but I need a slow and proper introduction. I think I’m just too excited when I first see another dog and they don’t seem to like that very much.
My foster mom wants me to go to an experienced home where they can spend one-on-one time with me. I do not do well with cats and would do best in a home that does not have small children. I hope you will come and meet me so that we can see if we are a match.
Demi - 3.2 Year Old Female
Demi is currently getting settled with her foster family, so please check back as she will be available for adoption soon.
Bryant - 2.1 Year Old Male
Hello! My name is Bryant and my foster mom says I’m a real sweetheart. I want to be within three feet of you at ALL times. If you move, I move! I don’t really like to be left alone and I need my foster mom to come outside and watch me potty; I won’t go unless she comes out with me. She says I turn into a Jack Russell Terrier when I go outside by myself because I jump up and down until she comes outside or lets me back in. It must be funny, because it makes her laugh.
I’m house broken and crate trained, although, I would much rather be with you than in my crate. I like to sleep on the floor next to you all night. I’ll bark for a few minutes when I first go in my crate, but then I settle down pretty quickly. And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE food!! I just can’t seem get enough! I will eat the cat’s food if you’re not watching me closely. And speaking of cats…my foster mom has a big giant orange cat that’s kind of a bully, so I try and stay away from him. But there’s also a smaller kitty that likes to play with me a lot. He’s pretty fun. He likes to bite my hind legs when I’m eating. He’s lucky I’m not a horse I guess. There’s also a tiny little Chihuahua that lives here too. My foster uncle says she’s not a real dog like me. She growls at me sometimes, but I don’t let that bother me.
I love to play fetch and the way I pounce on the ball/toy makes my foster mom laugh. She says I make her laugh a lot and that’s good, because I love to please! I get very excited when I see the leash come out of the drawer; that means we’re going somewhere, like a car ride or a walk. When I ride in the car, I like to be in the front seat with you and I’ll sit in the passenger seat with my head in your lap (remember, no more than three feet from you!). When we’re out walking, I tend to pull a bit on the leash, but I’m learning to try and not do that as much. Oh, I can’t forget to tell you that I’m really good with small humans too. They’re at the perfect height to sneak a kiss! So, now that you know there’s so much about me to love, won’t you give me a forever home?
August - 7.7 Month Old Male
Hi, my name is August. I'm a young, yellow boy. My foster mom says my fur is really soft and on the longer side. I was found as a stray but mom says I'm really good. I had a couple of accidents but that's only because they did not know my cues. Now they do! I enjoy playing with other dogs and I love the water hose!! I get bored so I need a home that has a lot of moving parts. The best home might include another dog buddy to play with or a few kids to throw the ball for me to chase or to chase me!!
Charlie - 6.4 Year Old Male
Hey guys! My name is Charlie. As you can see from my picture, I am a very handsome boy! I am 6 ½ years old and a retired hunting dog. When I was a pup, I went to live with a really nice family; however, they had a new little human that ended up being allergic to dog dander and they had to find me a new home. We were all heartbroken. But, after a few days with my new foster family I realized this is an opportunity for a new adventure! Now I am very happy and looking for a family of my own.
I have 2 foster lab sisters and I get along with them really well, however, they don’t really want to play with me. My foster family also has a little human, and I just love her. She likes to cover me up with blankets and snuggle and of course I let her! There are also these furry creatures called cats. I tolerate them, but they pester me all the time. I know lots of commands including sit, go, stay and most importantly: “No!” At night I love to cuddle with my foster family in bed, but they prefer I stay in my crate to sleep. They said something about there isn’t enough room. I don’t mind, I like my crate too.
My foster mom says that I am a really good boy, but said I need to tell you that I am a special dog. Apparently, I have something called diabetes. I’m not really sure what that means, but my foster mom takes care of it all. There is really nothing to it, she checks my blood sugar twice a day and I get a shot twice a day. Oh yea, she also makes these treats that are so are sooooo good! So whoever adopts me, has to get the recipe!
Okay, now you know all about me and I am so excited to meet you! Can you find it in your heart to love a special boy like me?
Pikachu - 3.5 Month Old Male
Hi! I'm adorable, yellow and full of quick movements just like my namesake! But don't worry, I'm not a rodent and certainly don't overwhelm my opponents with powerful shocks like that other Pikachu! In fact, I wouldn't know what an opponent was if it stared at me in the face! I love everything & everyone I meet, and it's definitely reciprocal!
My foster family says I'm one of the sweetest yellow lab puppies they've ever met— and they should know, they've foster-failed two! I'm your typical, energetic puppy, but, apparently, I sleep like a dream too. I adore my crate & go into it at night without a problem! My foster Mom says she wishes her kids were just like me!
I get along with kids, babies, and even some ornery labs that have come my way! My foster family says they need to find me an awesome home soon, or they'll end up foster failing me too!!
*This dog may not meet the breed standard for a Labrador Retriever.
Michael - 3.3 Month Old Male
Michael is a sweet young puppy that was found along with his siblings. He is currently getting settled with his foster family, so please check back as he will be available for adoption soon.
Aly - 3.3 Month Old Female
Aly is approximately 11 weeks old and very sweet. She has tons of puppy energy and is slowly starting to learn commands too! She does very well in her crate, during the workday and during the night. She loves to play with all toys, especially if they squeak! She plays well with other dogs, including older dogs. And she knows how to entertain herself, including some quiet time curled up on a comfy rug!
Tess - 7.4 Month Old Female
Dwyer - 1.6 Year Old Male
Hi, my name is Dwyer and I'm a 1.5 year old black male. I am the sweetest boy who loves to be petted by everyone I meet. I am good with cats and other dogs. I rarely jump up on people only when I get super excited. I love being an inside dog but I also love to go on walks around the neighborhood. I am very well behaved, I don't chew on anything that isn't mine and I haven't touched any of the furniture in my foster moms house! I am also crate trained. I like my crate but I love to be with people as much as possible. I also know never to potty in the house and I haven't had one accident so my foster mom says I am very well potty trained!
I am a sweet boy who wants to be loved all the time. I love attention and belly rubs and can't wait to meet my new family! My loving personality will make me a great companion!
Finn - 6.2 Month Old Male
Hi, my name is Finn....or Finny-finn-finn or Phineas McFinnigan or FN2187 or even TK421 (Apparently I need to watch Star Wars!). My foster parents told me I broke the cuteness scale, but I promise it wasn't me, I didn't touch it!
Anyway, I don't remember where I came from, but they tell me I was found as a stray. I guess I'm lucky, because I ended up with a foster family that took me in, and is helping me learn to be a good dog. I pull a little on my leash when we go for walks, but I know I could do better with some more practice. And I think I've got the housebreaking thing down now. I know how to "sit", and I'm working on "shake" and "down", but sometimes I get confused. Oh well, I still get a treat! Did I mention I love to eat?
Somebody asked me if I like cats...what's a cat? But I do know that I like playing with other dogs, especially my foster brother and sister. They're bigger and faster than me, but I try to keep up, and I love rasslin' with my foster sister in the backyard. She's closer to my size, and she even lets me win sometimes.
I'm not real fond of my crate as of yet, and the vet said it could be because I'm not used to enclosed spaces, seeing how I was a stray. My foster parents are slowly trying to get me used to it, but I don't know.... Funny thing is, when I'm not sleeping on the couch or on my foster parent's bed, I do like sleeping under the bed, but that may just be because my foster brother and sister sleep under there sometimes, too.
I love having a family, and being at my foster parent's house is great, especially having other dogs that can run and play with, but what I'm really hoping for is a furever home where I can spend the rest of my life. They said I'll be ready to go to my furever home soon, but apparently not until I get healed up after undergoing some procedure. Oh, did I tell you that I'm must be a smart dog, because I'm going to the vet to get tutored! Should be fun!
Gotta go, my foster sister left her food unattended, so I better go eat some of it so it doesn't go to waste. Did I mention I like to eat?
Can I be your Huckleberry?
Stanley - 1.6 Year Old Male
Hi, Stanley reporting in! First things first, do you have another dog that would play with me or will you take me to the dog park or doggie day care to play? If not, I could help you stay fit by running with you or help to wear out your older kids. Let’s go – daylight’s burning!
Oh, you want a little downtime too? Huh. Well see, I’ve got this thing called a crate and I am calm and quiet in it, especially if I’ve had a good romp first. It’s helping me learn that you might not want to play all the time when you are on that darned computer - again. Those stuffed Kongs are a welcomed touch too. I sleep throughout the night in my crate and without a peep I might add. Could be I don’t need it but foster mom doesn’t want to sleep with one eye open … go figure. I’m still learning about “approved toys”. I’m an inquisitive boy and this is confusing but I’m catching on!
I’m sweet and give kisses generously, if you like. My leash skills are pretty good for my age and will just get better with guidance. I’m just a big puppy so let’s seal our bond with a common language through basic training. I can be bribed.
My foster smiles cuz I’m just so darn cute when I put my butt on the ground so she will pet me. She calls me her freckled face boy and I remind her of Alfred E. Neuman even though she did not read MAD magazine. “What, Me Worry?” Nah, I’m just a happy-go-lucky pup and my people are coming to get me. Could it be you? Ask for Stanley!
Moogan - 2.1 Year Old Male
Hi! My name is Moogan! I am energetic and very people- and dog-friendly. My foster parents have no idea why a love bug like me would end up in a shelter.
I don’t think I’ve had much training in my last home. My foster parents are working on my basic obedience, but I am housebroken. So far, I haven’t chewed on anything that I am not supposed to in my foster home. I am almost crate-trained, I will go into my crate willingly (with treats), but I do whine for a few minutes before settling down. I sleep in my crate through the night with no problem.
My foster parents want me to go to a home without little kids because I am still a big puppy and I can easily knock a little one down out of excitement. I am smart, confident, very food-motivated, and environmentally-stable. My foster parents say that I am a diamond in the rough, once polished, will be the best companion ever!
Here's a video of me in training! https://www.youtube.com/watch?
Lucee - 5 Year Old Female
Lucee is a sweet girl that likes other dogs and is house trained. She is a bit afraid of thunderstorms if she is left alone. Lucee is currently getting settled with her foster family, so please check back as she will be available for adoption soon.
Margaery - 6.8 Year Old Female
Margaery is a six year old chocolate girl. She's a sweet and loving girl that can be active and she will also lay down next to you on the couch. She will chase squirrels or anything else that moves in the yard. She's good on walks (but she is strong) and she's always ready to jump in the car and go for a ride.
She would do best in a home as an only dog, as she loves to be with people. She doesn’t care for small animals, including cats. She also alerts you when she hears the doorbell and any noise outside and makes a good watchdog!
If you are looking for a sweet companion to shower you with love and devotion, she’s your girl!
Marco - 1.7 Year Old Male
Marco is a really good dog that spent most of his youth in a cage, waiting for someone to play with him. As a result, he's a little "over friendly" with simple youth and exuberance issues that improve daily. Marco tends to want to jump and get excited with new people, but knows how to sit and is getting better at relaxing quicker and being less "in everyone's face". Basically, he just wants you to know he's there and you have a chance to love him as much as he obviously loves you!
Other dogs are no problem for Marco and he loves children. We walk every morning and he is friendly (and even somewhat calm) when we meet kids on the way to the nearby elementary school. That being said, he is a tall lab and can be intimidating. As a result, he has gotten a little rough with smaller dogs but he backs off quickly and is really good at doggie apologies - to the point that they come back for more!
Marco is an very good walker! He loves being next to you, so this works really well on a walk. He's potty trained and crate trained and can be trusted overnight outside the crate and to be left alone for short periods of time. I would not recommend leaving him alone for long periods of time as he has occasionally been caught on counter surfing expeditions (he's still a growing boy) but that behavior is almost gone. He also get’s a little bored.
This is a dog that loves to play fetch with toys & balls. He also loves the pool to cool off or to just be near you. If you are there - he's ready for a swim too! He would be great with someone who can run/walk him daily and with a couple of kids for him to bond with.
Marco will be a wonderful family dog. It will take a few guidelines and a couple of weeks of patience as he learns and trusts how much you adore him!
Elvis - 1.6 Year Old Male
Hey there. Elvis here!!!!! Boy am I thankful the kind folks at DFW Lab Rescue performed a JAILHOUSE ROCK and got me out of the clink. I was ALL SHOOK UP out on the streets. They came in and asked ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT and boom I was in a car headed for my new life!
I’ve been having a great time with my foster family. I have a foster brother and we really love to play. My foster Mom says I am just a big TEDDY BEAR because I love to cuddle. But I also love to PLAY!!!!!! I overheard her say I need some “Puppy 101 Training”. I’m not sure what that is but it sounds pretty fun. Hopefully we get to go in the car to get to it because I love a car ride. If there are treats involved that would be great too. Being out on the streets it’s hard to find a good meal. I know where to go potty and I’m fine with a crate. My foster Mom lets me sleep on the floor in my dog bed at night next to her. I sure do like this. I’m really excited to get to meet everyone.
IT’S NOW OR NEVER to find a forever family that will LOVE ME TENDER. OHH Gotta run! I hear Mom making a peanut butter and banana sandwich!!!!! WOOF!
Jax - 1.6 Year Old Male
Jax is a friendly young lab without much training. He is currently getting settled with his foster family, so please check back as he will be available for adoption soon.
Squirtle - 3.5 Month Old Male
Squirtle is one of the "Pokemon" puppies and here is what he has to say:
I consider myself to be a spunky puppy, after all, they call me Squirtle! I like to play with the big boys. Occasionally, they get a little to rough, only because I'm so small, so I might make a high pitch squeal to scare them off. If that doesn't work, I'll try to find something I can hide under so they can't get me or if foster mom is around, I just look up at her with my big round eyes and she'll pick me up. Foster mom thinks I eat my food slow so that I can taunt my foster brothers, August & Max. They like to finish their food fast and then come to my crate and watch me finish mine. I think, they would let me share my food if they could get in.
I don't mind the crate, sometimes it's a great way to get a good nap. At night, I like to sleep in the crate (sometimes with the doors open) and sometimes I like to sleep on the bed with a pillow to prop up on. Mom takes me outside often so I don't potty inside, she said I must be a fast learner because no accidents. I'm looking for a Furever home that will love me, for ME, big or small!!
Phelps - 1.1 Year Old Male
Phelps is a goofy, friendly guy that likes other dogs. He may not have all of the gold medals of his namesake Micahel Phelps but he will soon take the gold by finding his forever home. Here's what his foster has to say so far:
I'm the ultimate snuggle bug!!! I want to be petted and played with 24/7. I have lots and lots of puppy energy! I have the most handsome dark coat in the business - some say black and some say chocolate! I'm a love bug to boot!! Will u come play and snuggle with me? Xoxo Phelps
Simone - 3.3 Month Old Female
Simone is approximately 10 weeks old and very sweet. She has tons of puppy energy and is starting to learn commands too! She does very well in her crate, during the workday and during the night. She loves to play with all toys, especially if they squeak! She plays well with other dogs, including older dogs. And she knows how to entertain herself too!
Adrian - 5.1 Year Old Male
It’s me Adrian aka. Luke as in “Cool Hand Luke”. Why you ask? Because I am as cool as they come. I was stuck in the shelter with little hope and heartworms. DFW Lab Rescue scooped me up and since then I have been learning about how nice people can be and how awesome air conditioning is!!! It was so hot out there on the mean streets and now I’m living the good life….comfy dog bed, a full tummy, and best of all lots and lots of love and ear scratches. I’m not too sure about toys or that big cement pond. Right now I’m just enjoying relaxing and hanging out with my foster parents. I don’t mind the cat and my foster pup siblings are alright too. People are my favorite though. My foster momma thinks I would make a great therapy dog. She says I am gentle and I have the sweetest smile, and one more thing…I have not barked the entire time in my foster home. I just make some happy groans when I am extra comfy. My life is just about perfect except for one thing….my foster parents told me that my real family is looking for me!!

Sherry - 4.1 Year Old Female
Hello out there my name is Sherry. I have been with my foster mom now about 2 weeks. She says I am the sweetest dog she has ever known! I am very easy going and get along with everybody including kids of all ages, other dogs and love to sit outside with my foster mom and watch the canal and nature all around me. I like to ride in the car and love to go for walks and am very nice to walk. I am very trustworthy in the house and housetrained. I have a big crate with the side up so I can lay in there whenever I want.
I do have a medical issue, but it doesn't bother me much. When I was a pup the vet thinks I injured the muscles in my rear legs. My owner didn't have repairs made so my walk is a little unusual. The vet told my mom I have some arthritis in my knees. So I take some joint supplements (always will) and for 1 month an anti-inflammatory. I need to build my muscles up again in my rear legs. I don't like climbing lots of stairs. So I'm hoping for a one story house so I can follow you everywhere.
I love to bring mom my furry toy for her to throw and I bring it back to her. I shake hands too. I like to swim foster mom thinks since the canal looks very inviting! I'm looking for a home with lots of love and I will be your faithful companion. If kids live there or grandkids visit, I would really like that! If I sound like the girl for you, have your people call my people! Oh did I mention people tell me I am beautiful?
Esther - 3.1 Year Old Female
Hello to my future family! I am a loving, gentle yellow female. My foster family just adores me. They love my warm, kind eyes and my calm, sweet personality. I am three years old, completely house trained and only pick up dog toys or tennis balls. I love playing fetch and I will come back to you immediately. I get along very well with my 8 year old foster sister, a black lab. My foster mom said she usually ignores other foster dogs, but she loves me and we play and sometimes snuggle. I also do well with children. My foster parent’s couldn’t believe how amazing I am on a leash! I walk well and I am the perfect running companion. If I see a neighborhood cat, squirrel or dog, I will pull, but redirection works well.
My first night at my foster home I slept in a crate. My foster mom kept getting up to check if I was ok because I didn’t make a peep. I have gained their trust through perfect behavior and now I sleep on a dog bed in their room and I even have full range of the house. If I close my eyes and imagine my perfect family, they are the kind of people who realize I make a house a home. I want to be your companion while gardening, cooking in the kitchen, vacations, reading a good book or car rides. I haven’t tried swimming with my foster family, but if you’re very patient and don’t force me in, I bet I will like it. I will lie next to you in your office if you work from home. I will cuddle with you if you’re feeling sad or just need a friend. All I ask in return is that you love me as much as I’ll love you.
Wendy - 4 Year Old Female
My name is Wendy and I am a very laid back lady that is very happy to be around people or other dogs. I have perfect manners and am house trained but really don’t much like to be on my own so I would like a home with people around most of the time or another older dog for company.
I am very easy going, gentle and good in the car but a little nervous. I really enjoy walks but am not super energetic.
