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.

Martin - 8.5 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 84 lbs Heartworm negative -
Hi!! I’m Martin and I’m a handsome, easy-going boy! I was returned to DFW Lab Rescue because of some life changes with my former owner. My foster mom says I have very good manners in the house because I don’t get on the furniture unless I’m invited, I don’t jump up on people, I stay out of the way in the kitchen, don’t counter surf, and I take my treats very gently. I am potty trained and I know sit, lay down, and shake. I follow my foster mom and dad around the house and just want to be near them at all times. I’m an older guy and have had full run of the house ever since I got here! I sleep next to the bed on my favorite blanket, and I don’t bother the humans until they wake up.
I love being outside, going in the pool, and going on walks, but I do pull on the leash sometimes. So I need a family who is willing to work with me on my leash skills – I just get so excited to be out and about and smelling all the smells! There are not currently any other dogs in the house, but I have been around and lived with other dogs before. I’m told that I’m such a sweet boy that just wants a family to love and cuddle with at the end of a long day. If you think I’m the guy for you, then let’s meet!
Demarco - 3.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 80 lbs - Available now
Hi my name is Demarco, although I must admit sometimes I think it’s no because I hear that a lot too. I’m quite the handsome guy and a little bit smaller than some of my gy friends. But don’t let my smaller size fool you I’m full of life and don’t have much use for sleep. My favorite days are going to the country
where I have a lake to play around and swim in. I have a strong desire to hunt and retrieve and irronically am fascinated with dragonflies. I’ll gladly chase them around for hours, enjoying every minute.
When I’m in the city, I really enjoy riding in the car and going on long walks. I’m told I’m a little over exuberant at the beginning of a walk but after a while I go at a normal pace. Being confined for an extended period is not good for me. My energy level becomes more than I can handle. So hours of exercise or getting out two or three times a day is best for me right now - and that's on top of my squirrel duty in the back yard.
I’m pretty good in the house but still have to stay in the crate when I’m home alone. Apparently its because I will pick up anything on the floor. I do
have my favorite toys but can truly and throughly enjoy getting a water bottle or milk jug to play with and chew on. Boxes are another favorite, but that can make quite the mess.
So if you’re the active type and like a loving & energetic companion - lets set up a time to meet.
Wynter - 8.8 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female 56 lbs- Heartworm negative- Available now.
Wynter has a sweet and loving temperament. She is calm, quiet, housebroken, leash and crate trained, and will keep your backyard free of rabbits and squirrels. In addition, she loves to snuggle!
At her age, Wynter is beginning to have achy joints. She has been diagnosed with arthritis in her left knee and early signs of hip dysplasia. The Veterinarian suggests keeping her lean, minimizing high impact activity, glucosamine supplements and pain medication. Short daily walks will help with flexibility in the joints as well as strengthening of the muscles around the joints.
Wynter is a reactive dog and needs a family who is willing to continue working with her and not place her in uncomfortable situations. When walking on a leash, she appreciates social distancing with unfamiliar dogs. My Labrador and Wynter get along great and enjoy hanging out together. If you are willing to invest in her wellness, Wynter will give you unconditional love and companionship in return. She sleeps in the computer room while I work and joins me outside while I garden. And, you will never need to look for Wynter because she will follow you from room to room carrying her stuffed toy.
Please let us know if you feel Wynter fits into your lifestyle.
Hazzel - 2.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Chocolate female 55 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available mid September
Hello, I'm Hazzel and I'm looking for my forever family. I was abandoned on the side of the road by my previous family. That was not cool! But I waited there for them to come back and burned my little paws. Needless to say, they didn't come back for me. Luckily, I was picked up by a Good Samaritan and taken in this rescue and now I'm hanging out with my cool foster family and becoming the little lady that I knew I could be.
I have good manners - I know Sit, Stay, Come and some other commands. If you want me to learn new ones, just let me know - I'm eager to learn and please. I do jump up on people when I am really excited, but I'm learning not to do that. I do like to chew, but I stay away from things that I shouldn't chew on - your shoes are safe with me! So having safe toys and bones around would be great! I'm fully potty trained and will let you know when I need to go outside. I like being in my crate - it makes me feel safe. Toys and balls are fun!
I have so much love to give and would love to be a part of your family.
Stringer - 8.1 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Notes: Yellow (Fox Red) - Male - 75.6 lbs. Heartworm Negative. Est. Available Date late Aug
Mellow, calm, eager to be loved . . . this describes Stringer. He is a fox red lab whose life before now is a mystery. He was found as a stray. He has multiple scars on his face and legs, a missing toe nail, and a broken tooth. He has not had a comfortable life but he is heartworm negative, so someone cared enough about him to give him monthly HW preventive. He is good with other dogs of all sizes and after feeling comfortable with them he will play. He is very food motivated (he’s a Lab after all) so he’ll be easy to train. His likes . . . food, treats, food, soft touches and whispers in his ears. His dislikes . . . water, squirrels and storms.
Stringer will make someone a wonderful companion. Look past the scars and see his wonderful heart and soul.
Clematine - 6.8 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 40 lbs - Heartworm Neg. - Available now
Clematine is a fun-loving and joyful pup! She loves other dogs and people and enjoys playing with her toys and running around the back yard with her foster siblings. She is crate trained, but we are still working on potty training. Clematine is inquisitive. She likes to watch the cat and chase the frogs. The only thing she chews on other than her toys are Amazon boxes and any pieces of wood she can find. Little Clematine is still working on her obedience. She would benefit from a training class for puppies. Her coat is super soft with a hint of silver to it, and her eyes will melt your heart. This little girl likes to play hard and cuddle hard, and would be a great puppy for any family willing to work with her and love her.
Bowen - 3.1 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Info: Chocolate - Male - 85.8 lbs. Heartworm Negative. Abailable now
Are you looking for a best friend? Well so am I! Someone to take walks with? Me too! How about a hug or a kiss? Yes, me too! I may try to sit in your lap but if you tell me down, I'll respect your space and lay at your feet. We already have so much in common, I'm sure we could be great friends!
I have learned the basics like sit, stay, down, and shake. I like to swim, take walks, and I'm pretty good on the leash. I'm healthy and a bit athletic if I say so myself. I can run fast and fetch so I'd make a great running partner too!
My foster mom says I'm the sweetest, most chill, and most polite dog she's ever met. Kids are my friends, though I am not a fan of cats or the crate. If you or your little one has food in their hands, I remain calm and won't try to snatch it. Of course, I do love treats so hopefully you have lots of those.
Oh and a few more things: I am potty trained and will go to the door when I want to go out. I am a loyal companion and hang out quietly, only barking if I don't recognize someone that comes into my home. That’s just me saying hello and scoping them out. If I sound like a great match, I hope we can meet soon!
Bonny - 5.4 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Chocolate Female - 30 lbs - Heartworm negative - Available now
Hello world, my name is Bonny and I am the cutest little Lab puppy you will ever meet. If that isn’t enough to make you add me to your list, I’ll tell you more. I am a petite girl that had a bit of a ruff start in life. But hey, I am here now, and life is great! I am a beautiful chocolate color and although the chocolate somehow got rubbed off a bit on one ear. I'm pretty sure it will grow back again.
At my foster home I have three older foster Lab brothers and I have to tell you, they are a bit BORING! My foster Mom and Dad are teaching me fun things like sit and fetch. OK, I am still learning but I really like the treats I get for trying. I think I would like to swim but I had ear infections when I got here so I have to wait just a little while longer to try. Oh well, I still have tons of fun running around, bugging my dog brothers and just being adorable when playing with my basket full of toys. I will be ready to find my forever home very soon so don’t wait, add me to your list NOW!
Foster Mom also said to tell you to be sure to check out my video. That’s all for now. I have a squeaky toy to attack!
McDuff - 5.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 103 lbs -Heartworm negative - mid Sept
Hi, I'm McDuff and I get along with everyone and everything I meet. I like dogs (big and small), cats, kids, and adults, too. I am not bothered by squirrels in the yard, either. I walk really well on the leash so I'm hoping that there are lots of walks in my future. I could really stand to lose the quarantine 15 (couldn't we all) to help me get back to my normal sleek self.
I am potty trained, know basic commands, and take treats very gently as well. I'm not the biggest fan of the crate, but luckily I don't need it - I have had full house privileges since I've been at my foster home. I'm not hyper, I'm really pretty chill. I don't get on the furniture either. I'm not too vocal, but I will bark when someone comes through the garage door, that is part of my job, isn't it? I sleep through the night right next to my foster parents bed and I don't bother them until morning. I'm what they call a velcro dog meaning I love to be right next to my people and I crave love and affection, but not in an annoying way, though.
If you have lots of time for me then I have lots of love for you. I'll be ready to meet families really soon, so please add me to your list.
Cheyene - 8.7 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female 59 lbs - Heartworm negative -
Cheyene is a beautiful girl in the prime of her life who came into our home a little unsure of herself and her surroundings but has turned into a bundle of joy. In Cheyene’s former life, she was a breeder dog. When she came into our home, she was a little shy and had some separation issues, but in a short time with love, patience, and training, she has become a more confident dog.
Cheyene’s favorite hobby is to be your cuddle buddy. She also loves playing fetch, going on walks, playing keep away, and playing with other dogs. She’s good with kids, but not with cats, is crate trained, and knows basic commands. She has had canine siblings her entire life and would prefer a family with large, calm dogs or none at all.
Cheyene is a bundle of love and cuddles and will do best in a home that will allow her to adjust at her own pace. She will need a leader that is confident to give her structure to help reduce mild separation anxiety. They say great things come in small packages, and with Cheyene it’s absolutely true!
Vannder - 1.1 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Info: Black - Male - 60 lbs. Heartworm Negative.
Mikie - 7 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 38lbs - Available now
Hi Everyone! My name is Mikie and ever since I started living with my foster family, I have been dreaming about what my new family will be like. I will give them many kisses and snuggles all the time, and I mean all the time! I have so many things to tell them, like I can sleep nicely in my crate all night long until my people wake up. I also love to play with other dogs, and I know how to sit when you pet me and feed me delicious treats (please have lots available for me). I know you will not believe this, because I’m still so young, but I am great on a leash!
I am a super awesome dog waiting for just the right super awesome family. I can’t wait to meet you; I know we will be best friends!
Big Jorge - 2.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 88 lbs - Heartworm Negative -
This guy is just a big ball of love! He loves people, wants to be near you and never passes up a good cuddle. He is house broken and goes to the door when he needs to go. While he doesn’t love the crate, he will tolerate it. Big Jorge loves to go for walks and doesn’t pull but we are working on not walking right in front of you or slowly leaning on you while you walk. He really is a big cuddle bug and loves to play but doesn’t know his size so will probably do best in a home without young children or smaller dogs. He would be great with a medium to large size dog friends, adults and/or teenagers. He can’t wait to meet his new best friend!
Mauii - 2.6 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Info: Yellow - Male - 50 lbs. Heartworm negative.
Hi, my name is Mauii and I've adapted well to living in my foster home but am still dreaming of my furever family. I love to play and have great energy! Fetch is my favorite game and I would play for hours if you let me. I am house and crate trained and do well with kids. I am still learning to walk on a leash as I have a tendency to pull but my foster parents say I'm getting better every day. I'm as a champ at "sit" but still working on other basic commands like lay and stay. I'm such a lover and get a little sad when my foster parents leave the house, so I may have a little separation anxiety. I also love chasing cats and squirrels, so I'd probably do better off with a home without cats. Can't wait to meet my new family.
Melody - 1.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female 70 lbs - Heartworm negative -
Hello, My name is Melody and I am a big girl so I can be strong and hard to move when I don’t want to. I was surrendered by my previous family as they didn’t have enough time for me and my fur-brother Dempsey and would leave us alone for 12 hours a day. Because of this I have developed some separation anxiety and can be pretty noisy when I’m stressed. My foster family has been showing me that I can trust them and it’s ok if I am alone for short periods of time and I'm doing well. I am just not ready to be left alone for too long just yet. I really do love people and just want to be with you. I'm a great dog and won’t bark when the doorbell rings which they say is unusual for a Lab.
For some of the vitals - I am a sweet girl and have gotten nap taking down to a science with snoring and all! I am housebroken and can go quite a while without needing a potty break, but once I do need to go out I am not the fastest girl at finding the “right spot”. I am still young but they say that I act more mature than I really am! I don’t chew on everything but do have a few of the puppy tendencies (I steal socks that are left out like any self respecting dog).
I feel like I am ready to find my fur-ever home now, are you that family?
Dempsey - 1.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 90 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available Mid Sept
Hello, my name is Dempsey. I'm a handsome young guy, weighing in at 90lbs and not one ounce of fat on my bones. Your first question is probably how such a good looking guy like me ended up surrendered to a rescue. Well, my first home thought they needed a Lab, but they really had no time for me. And to make things worse, they decided that both my sister and me together was the right way to go. What happened is they ended up leaving us outside 12 hours a day and sometimes even more. The good news came the day this guy from DFW Lab Rescue came and got us. And while I was sad that my sister and I were separated - we have met up and both agree this is way better.
In my foster home, I have other dogs to play with and grandkids that visit occasionally and who I really love. I'm a very good walker and so much so that even the little kids can walk me. I know most of the important commands, I don't jump on people, don't countersurf and am all around am just a great dog. It took a little while to learn the house rules but I've got them down. I am not currently being crated (and I have to say, I'm not a fan). When they leave, they tell me to be good - and I AM!
And if my foster mom tells you I bit the grandkids and ate the leather couch - don't worry - she is fooling you. She may just have a little trouble letting go. So - don't be fooled at all. She and the grandkids give me lots of kisses and I really love them back. So - if you are looking for a big guy - put me on your list. I'm a great dog and looking for a great family to love and kiss and have the best life.
