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.

Noa - 6.4 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 71 lbs -
5/16/21 Based on vets recomendation, Noa's age has been changed to 6 years
Noa is a very handsome, dark yellow, male lab. People tell us how handsome he is when we go out to walk. He was an outside dog who has adjusted very well to living the good life of a beloved indoor member of the family. At the vet he was neutered, had has heartworm treatment and was treated for various mites and fleas from being outside. He finished his bed rest from heartworms and is all better. His ears are black along the outer edges, the vet says it is due to his extreme scratching of outside bugs that he could not get way from. He has scratched the fur off and they have healed up as best they can.
Noa enjoys laying in the sun in the living room and napping on a blanket in the office during the day. When we have to leave, he is crated and cries for a bit then settles down. He loves to go for walks and bumps your arm at 4pm each day to tell you it is time for his dinner and his daily walk.
In the evening likes to sit by the couch as you watch tv or do homework with his head resting on your feet, he is an excellent foot warmer. He does not get on furniture or beds. When it is time for bed he knows his bed is on the floor right next to our bed. Noa is not a lickey kind of dog, but he likes to give the occasional little kiss, maybe, if you deserve it.
He now lets’ new people pet him when out on walks as he used to hide behind me as he was unsure of the world and people. We have a 12 year old son in our home and one older Labrador and he does well with both. Noa would do best in home without really small children as can get really excited sometimes when he wants to play and likes to jump around and he can be growly – not mean it is just talking to you. He likes to get our dog to play and chase him around the furniture if he is feeling spunky. He will need time to adjust in his new home as he can still be startled by loud noises and can be unsure of new things at times.
Noa has a very sweet heart even with all he has been through, with a little time to get used to things and get to love and be loved by you, he will be a loving member of your forever home.
Jeau - 2.6 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 75 lbs -
My name is Jeau and now that I'm settled into my foster home, we think it's start time to look for my forever home. It won't be just any home. It has to be one with very special people who are patient and understanding. I had a rough start in life at a breeder and for the first couple of years, I was not around humans much and mostly kept out in the yard all the time. I didn't know how good it was to sleep in air conditioning at night! So, it takes me a while to warm up. My foster mom tell you about that, but I'm very sweet and a good guy and look forward to having my forever home. I eat good, potty where I'm supposed to and like to go on walks once we have figured each other out.
From Jeau's foster mom: Jeau is a sweet guy, timid, and just needs lots of love and patience. He will require a quiet home and a family that is happy to provide him with consistency and routine. He loves going on a walk and walks well on a leash. However, Jeau likes the same routine and walks where other people approach him can scare him. He is very accustomed to our home and somedays shows no anxiety at all but at other times, he can be startled by sudden noises like a door closing too hard. He is crate and house trained, and likes to play with his toys. He mostly ignores other dogs on walks and does well with other foster dogs in our home, eventually becoming comfortable with them and they end up playing together. He spent some time with another foster who had a cat and had no reaction. He enjoyed swimming in the pool and loved hanging on the top step to cool off.
Jeau is looking for a quiet home and neighborhood and someone that can love him and help him gain confidence through interaction with people and some very simple training we have been doing with him (we have been working with a trainer). Gaining his trust will likely take multiple meetings. He does much better with new people indoors (especially in our home and with treats!) and it is very slow to warm up to people when he is outside of our home. He has come a long way since we brought him home, but it will take loving patience and time for this sweet guy to be the dog he was meant to be. If you have the time and the heart to adopt a guy like Jeau, he will become a great companion and angel for you.
Patience - 8.5 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female 54 lbs -
I’m not really sure how I got here but I’m sure glad the good people of DFW Lab Rescue saved me. I’ve had different names during my 8 years or so of life but my name now is Patience and I love it. You don’t need patience to be with me, though. With my maturity, I’m a pretty chill girl and don’t get too excited about anything. I don’t bark so you can sleep in without any bark-alarms. At home and at the park, I love humans and look to be petted by anyone willing. I’m fine with other dogs and cats don’t bother me. I don’t mind car rides because at the end I’m usually at a park where I get to wander from human to human! Oh, and I love to eat soft foods (old teeth, you know) and take treats very gently. My foster mom takes me for strolls around the block and I enjoy all the smells and looking around. I don’t need to go far to get my exercise and then I’m ready to curl up for some TV or bedtime.
I do have to be up-front for the family who adopts me as there are some things I need help with due to my age and previous hardships. I take medications for my worn joints and a heart murmur the vet found before my heartworm treatment.
I’m so grateful to not be in the situation I was in before and now hope to find a family who will love me and take care of me for the rest of my days.
*This dog may not meet the breed standard for a Labrador Retriever.
Gizmo - 5.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 51 lbs
Meet Gizmo. He’s a little shy at first, but he warms up really quickly. He just loves to follow you around, and help with whatever you are doing. He also likes hanging out while watching the tv or playing with tennis balls. Tennis balls are the best – if you don’t know how to throw one he will happily show you. He knows to do his business outside, but our guess is that he was an outside dog who didn’t get much attention before he came to visit. He is learning very quickly though - we’re working on sit, wait for dinner, and not jumping up to give you love.
Gizmo loves car rides, walks very nice on the leash, enjoys playing with kids and hanging out with our bigger lab. He does well in his create and sleeps through the night. Gizmo is obsessed with small furry things, so it’s probably best that he not be paired with cats or other small animals. He is such a sweet boy and deserves his own furever home.
Bindy - 2.8 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female 81 lbs
Hey there. I'm Bindy. Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello. I am just getting settled in with my new foster family. So far all is great here. I have a soft bed to sleep in. They take me for walks daily ummm well really 2x daily. I LOVE walks super glad they do too. I have been working on my "manners". I love people so much I just want to give everyone a big hug when I first meet them. BUT my foster mom says that is a no-no and I have been working hard at keeping all 4 paws on the ground when I meet new friends. I sure hope I get to meet you one day soon. Come back in a few weeks and I will update you on all my learnings.
Aspyn - 1.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female 45.6 lbs -
Hello! I’m Aspyn. A sweet, lovable yellow lab mix that loves to run and play and chase balls. I’ve still got a bit of puppy in me so I come with lots of love and energy. I doing great and want to keep learning to walk on a leash so I can go on lots of long walks. I walked 2 miles this morning with foster mom. She promised that we would walk again tomorrow, if it’s not raining. I get along with other dogs, large and small and the small human that visits often. I even like his hugs and pets. Not to brag, but I'm also very fast. I like to chase and be chased by the big red dog that I live with. I don’t like crates, but I’ll sleep on the floor at the end of the bed or on my dog bed like a champ. Right now I’m getting fed 3 times because I’m a little thin and I love meal time, treats and chew toys! Car rides are great too so if you leave, I want to go along.
I think that I will be your favorite pet ever so if I sound good to you, please be sure to ask for me.
Jovee - 6.3 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female 47 lbs -
Meet Jovee, she’s a sweet girl that loves everyone. Jovee came from a home where she was loved and well cared for. When the baby developed allergies the family tried to isolate the child from her but it didn’t work, then Jovee had to leave. So she’s here in foster care making the best of it until the perfect forever home comes along.
A.J. - 1.4 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male 57 lbs -
Hi! I'm A.J and I am the sweetest little black lab that there ever was! I have so much love to give and I'm hoping to become a forever member of an active family. I have a ton of energy and I'm always on the move. I love playing with the other dogs at my Foster's house. I even play nicely with their little dog and get along with their cats, but really I hardly even know that they are there.
Rustie - 5.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate (Silver) - Male - 61.4 lbs-
Hi! I'm Rustie!! I'm a very sweet boy and everyone comments on just how handsome I am too. I'm crate trained, potty trained and ready to make a wonderful family even more wonderful. I love car rides, kids, walks and lots of snuggling and love. I'm good on the leash and do well with basic commands and am more than happy to have a nice nap until you are ready to rock and roll with me. Who wants some sweet, silver love in their life?
Cristin - 3.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Chocolate Female 55.6 lbs -
Hi, I’m Cristin! Who’s ready for some lovvvvvveeeeeeeee? If you are, then I really want to meet you! My foster family said if they were going to adopt another dog, it would be me! They say I’m about as close to perfect as you can get. But, lucky you, they’re not adopting me, so let’s meet! I’m a very pretty brown/silver lab. I love bigger kids, love my crate, know the outside is for going potty, think walks are pretty amazing, and I sort of know how to bring the ball back when you throw it. The only thing I’ve gotten into since I’ve been here is a bag of puppy treats my foster mom left on the counter. But who wouldn’t devour such yummy treats if they had the chance?! I love sleeping in my crate at night. Heck, I even go in there just to hang out and nap during the day. At wakeup time, I get super excited, but who wouldn’t? My foster family is working with me to sit and stay before I get out of my crate.
I didn’t have the best life before I was rescued. You wouldn’t believe what I looked like when I first met my foster family. I was super skinny and had some weird skin stuff going on. But, after just a couple of weeks with them, I’m like a whole new dog. My fur is looking pretty amazing, my skin is all cleared up, and I’m gaining weight. The vet said I need to weigh about 65 pounds or so and I only have about 5-8 more pounds to go!
My foster mom is pretty sure I wasn’t an inside dog because the other day a repairman came and rang the doorbell and I didn’t do that thing that dogs do … bark! In fact, I had no idea what that weird sound was. But if that sound brings new people into the house, it can ring all day long. I loved the repairman. To be honest, I love everyone that comes in the door. New people are the best. They pet me and talk to me in that fun, happy voice. And it makes me soooo happy! I’ve met a bunch of my foster brothers’ friends – some of them are loud and crazy – and I love them too! I haven’t met any little kids or cats or dogs yet (other than on walks), but I’m pretty sure I’ll get along with them just fine.
Becker - 5.3 Year Old Male
Initial intake information:Chocolate male 73 lbs -
Becker is a beautiful, big chocolate male who just arrived into his foster home. At his age, he is still playful with his two foster Lab siblings but is also OK just hanging around the house. He walks well on a leash and loves to ride in the car. He loves people, young and old, and enjoys being close by. Becker is not good with cats or other very small animals in the home.
Unfortunately, Becker is heartworm positive then will have to go through treatment. Please continue to check back for updates on this big chocolate chunk of love!
Matlock - 6.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 70 lbs - Heartworm positive- Est available Mid June
Matlock is a happy and sweet boy who loves to be around people. He will follow you everywhere and is happy to just be around you. He thinks he is a guard dog and will alert you when someone walks by your door or window. At the same time he is very gentle with children and will let them lie in him, wrestle with him and play with him. He loves to play fetch and roll in the grass or walk in muddy puddles. He loves to play with water and go for long walks but sometimes forgets that he is on a leash when he sees something he wants to run at.
Matlock is a loving dog and is going to make an amazing forever pet for one lucky family!
Remmi - 5.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female 70 lbs -
is for going potty and hanging out. She joins a pack of five dogs and is respectful and easy with the other dogs. She likes car rides, and it appears that leash walking is new for her. She needs some basic training with patient and loving guidance. She is making progress, but it will take time for her to manage and trust daily life. It’s like going two steps forward, and one back. We are working on her beach body and a few pounds leaving that body will be good for this sweet girl.
Remmi has some thunderstorm anxiety but natural calming supplies help her well. She would do best in a quiet home with a determined human soul to give her the life she deserves.
Howdy - 1.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 56 lbs -
Howdy is a very friendly young dog that likes everyone. He doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. He comes when called and he also knows how to sit. He is an active dog that would do well with dog siblings. He does pretty good on a leash too. Howdy is not quite aware of how big he is so he would not be a great fit for a family with small children. He is a happy and sweet dog. He does not understand the meaning of personal space but we are working on that with him and he is getting better every day.
Brava - 3.1 Year Old Female
