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. The adoption fee for puppies (6 months and under) is $375.
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: Black Female - 80 lbs - Heartworm Neg- Available Now
If you are looking for a sweet, fun loving, pretty girl, then I just might be the one for you. I was rescued by DFWLRR and adopted as a puppy, but there were life changes so I am looking for my forever home again. I have a soft, lush, black coat that people love to stroke and touch and am good with children and other dogs. I'm crate trained, house trained, do not get on furniture, and LOVE to play fetch. They say I need to shed a few pounds but Foster Mom has already cut back on my food so I've adjusted to that and can continue that journey with my new family. I sit on command and at meal time because I know there will no dining until I sit and wait for Foster Mom to say grace and that magic word “Amen”.
I get real excited when we go out for walks and need some help with leash training. Foster Mom has a bad neck so she uses a “gentle leader” and I do fine with it. I just need someone who is willing to complete my finishing school so I can learn all about being calm on walks.
If I sound like the girl for you, please send my name to be added to your list .... I can't wait to meet you!
Jefferson - 3.5 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!

Mala - 6.4 Year Old Female
Initial Intake Information: Black - Female - 65 lbs. - Heartworm positive - Est. Available Early Jan
Hi! My name is Mala, I like to spell it L-O-V-E. I was a single mom for a long time and loved all my pups but now I am ready to get all of the affection. I'm super sweet and love attention. If you are lonely and need a loyal constant friend - CHOOSE ME!
I offer a sweet disposition, crate trained (although I'm not super crazy about it), vigilant watch for strangers, house broken and best buddy.
If you have a place in your heart (or the couch) for me, I would like to adopt you so we can hang out and snuggle together. #MalaisspelledLOVE
Appollo - 4.5 Year Old Female
Initial Intake Information: Black - Female - 48 lbs. Est. available date mid March.
Who wants some cuddles? Appollo is a very sweet girl who will make a great family dog. She has a lot of pep in her step but will curl up in your lap at the end of the day. Any mention of outside or a walk gets her excited. She likes to play outside and as long as she is next to her humans she is happy. She just loves to sleep next to her human kids.
Appollo currently lives with one cat sister. She has no problems with her besides craving the cat food. She gets excited when she is around other dogs. She may pull a little on the leash but overall is a great walker. There is a great balance between energy and calmness with Appollo. She is very adaptable.
Overall Appollo has been one of the sweetest, most loyal, and loving fosters we have had. She is a great companion and aims to please. Please consider making Appollo forever yours!

Terry - 2.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 60 lbs - Heartworm negative - Avail now
Terry is a sweet, fun Labrador. He is crate trained, potty trained and knows the sit command. He is very prancy and full of energy like a typical young Lab.
He is extremely handsome, loves to be petted and loves to rastle with our Labrador. We also have a 11 year old human boy and he loves playing with him too. We took him on his first walk while the weather was nice and he did really well. He wanted to chase squirrels but overall he listened and was very excited to be outside. He is at a great weight and is very food motivated which makes training easy. He will need some continued basic obedience work but he is a easily trainable, very smart, loyal and loving dog. He has not been mouthy and can even play ball by himself, but loves for you to throw it even more. He will need exercise to maintain his great shape and burn off energy.
Terry is ready to meet new friends and is a great dog who will have an easy transition to a forever home.
Matt - 7.3 Month Old Male
Initial Intake Info: Black - Male - 44 lbs. Heartworm Negative. Avail now
I have come a long way to join DFW Lab Rescue. I started my young life in Kentucky. It’s a long story, my foster mom will share if you and are are to meet but when I got here I was living in an apartment in an urban area that was quite loud and busy. I was overwhelmed with all the sounds and smells and really unable to focus on doing my business outside and learning some important things about being a good dog in a home. I’m a great natured guy, I was so and I was good in my crate and stayed pretty quiet, but outside was just too busy and overwhelming.
My new foster home is great. My foster siblings have taught me so much and I have built up much needed confidence in a short time. I still stay in a kennel when the humans are gone. But I sleep on a doggie bed with the others at night and go outside when I want through the doggie door. I know all about walking on a leash but be patient with me if I’m still a little afraid of what we encounter out there.
My new family will need to continue my training so that I will grow up socialized and confident. I really prefer to live with another dog so they can also help me learn. I’m available soon so let the rescue know if you want to meet me. For my part, I'm learning as fast as I can to make up for lost time and be the best dog ever!
DeeDee - 3 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 56 lbs - Heartworm negative - Mid March
Clarice - 6.3 Year Old Female
Initial Intake Info: Choclate - Female - 98 lbs. Heartworm Positive. Avail now
Clarice may have been a discarded breeder dog as it’s obvious her entire life, until now, she has either been pregnant or nursing. With very little opportunity for exercise she has little muscle tone in her belly. An enormous lipoma has been removed that was impeding her gait. This, as well as being heartworm positive, has set her 2019 fitness goals on hold. So far we have lost a couple pounds on her diet though. She is undergoing treatment to rid her of the heartworms and in the meantime she is the perfect houseguest. Clarice has the most lovely personality. Her tail never stops wagging and she follows us everywhere with a huge smile. This girl will make one lucky adopter a fantastic companion.
Leia - 7.2 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 63 lbs - Heartworm positive - Est available date mid march
Dee J - 4.8 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 75 lbs - Heartworm negative - Avail now
This low energy, calm, laid back boy will be a gem in any home. He is around 68lbs right now, but we are working on losing a few pounds. Dee J loves to cuddle and give kisses, whether it is in bed with you or on the couch binging Netflex. He gets along with other dogs and might be ok around cats with a proper introduction. He has been around numerous cats while his time at an area SPCA out in the country and was known to chase the cats (the temptation is so great) but also slept with them.
Dee J is good with children and loves playing with them. He does do some jumping up when you first come home but will settle down quickly. He is crate trained but doesn’t need to be in one and is very trustworthy when you are not home.
Dee J will be a great addition to any home. He looks forward to meeting you.
Jaycob - 3.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male - 73 lbs - Heartworm negative - TBD after arrival in foster home
Hello future forever family. I can’t wait to meet you! Sometimes I am a little shy when I first meet new people, but that doesn’t last long! As soon as I know that you are a “good guy”, it is all snuggles and tail wags.
I am still learning about the good life. I am learning things like…when foster momma says “sit”, I put my bottom on the ground and she gives me a tasty treat. When my foster folks start putting on their shoes to go, I get into my crate without her even asking. I didn’t like it at first, but now it isn’t so bad. After all, she always give me lots of treats for being a GOOD DOG!! Another thing I am learning is that the things in the doggie toy box are lots of fun!! I love toys!! I am even learning how to “get the ball”. True confession: Sometimes I like to play with things that are NOT in the doggie toy box, like a shoe or a remote. Hey, I am still learning!
Anyway, foster momma calls me an all around great guy, whatever that means. I am on the lookout for you future family. Until then, I will hang out with my foster family and since I am super smart, I might even learn some more words, especially if there is a treat involved!! See you soon forever family!! I love you already!!
