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.

Sunshine - 9.6 Year Old Female
Hi everyone! I’m Sunshine, but my foster mom calls me baby girl because I’m so adorable. They tell me I’m 9 years old, but I don’t know what they are talking about, I think I’m 5. My favorite thing in the whole wide world is playing ball. I make it really easy on you, you can just bounce it off the wall and I will catch it and bring it back to you! It’s so fun!
I love to be inside and just be with you whenever I can. I love my foster mom, but I love my dad even more, he stays home with me a lot and we get to hang out. I have proven to be great in the house and have never touched anything that wasn’t mine. I did try counter surfing once, but I got in trouble, so I don’t do that anymore. I will sleep in your bed if you let me, but my foster parents don’t like this, so they taught me to sleep in my own bed.
I barked a lot when I first came, I was nervous and frustrated. Now, I rarely bark cause I’m so comfy in my foster home. I need an extra special family, who will love me a lot. I have allergies, so I need special care, and I may be allergic to cats, so no cats. I want someone who will give me exercise and play ball with me. I’m really a good dog, just need lots of love.
From the foster parents: Sunshine needs good structure and boundaries. She is well behaved, but may challenge you at first. She know sit, stay, down, drop it, “NO”, and takes food from your hand gently. (She does not always take the ball so gently though, she gets really excited). She would do better with a family without small children.
Argento - 7.4 Year Old Male
Argento is a sweetheart of a dog. He is always ready for a cuddle or belly rub. “Argie,” as we call him, is a tough dog. He has battled cancer and is now ready to find a good home in which to settle down.
Argento loves to play fetch with his squeaky toy rabbit. He enjoys walks around the neighborhood. He lives in a home with a cat and young children. He can be a bit clumsy around them, but he is always there with a lick. Argie does have a sweet tooth for trash cans and loaves of bread. Overall he is a very loving boy who is ready for that special forever family to take great care of him!
Broomhilda - 1.1 Year Old Female
Hi I'm Hilda aka puddin puddin, wiggle bum or sassy girl. I've had a pretty tough start to my young life but believe it or not the day I went to the shelter was the luckiest day of my life. Don't misunderstand, I was terrified because I was in rough shape. No hair, full of bad stuff in my poo and heartworms to boot. This super nice lady at the shelter could see how precious I was and called my foster mom who came right away and saved me!! Since that day I have been on the mend. I'm free of all those nasty parasites and my fur is beautiful now. I do require regular baths though and I don't mind because it's my special time with my people and I love the massage that comes with it. I will also need to take medicine the rest of my life to treat my allergies. So that will cost my new family a little extra per year. But hey, I am not itching anymore and we all sleep better.
I sleep in my crate when my foster family is away. We have a doggy door for when I want to go outside to potty. I really like to get up on the couch to snuggle while you watch TV but at night I sleep in my own bed on the floor in my foster parents room with everyone else.
I love other dogs and me and my foster siblings play all the time. Oh yeah, I talk a lot. Not barking per say, but will do a bit of that if necessary. Mostly I like to tell you it's time for breakfast and other important events. I love to play ball and carry around my favorite toys too. I am still working on that leash walking thing but I am young and have lots of time to learn all kinds of great stuff. I will be looking for my own family soon so stay tuned.
Paula - 9.3 Month Old Female
Hi, I'm Paula aka 'Bad Girl' ; ) When I was brought to the DFW Lab Rescue, they discovered I had a pelvic fracture so I spent a lot of time resting. Now, I'm an energetic active puppy that needs a lot of attention. I love playing with all dogs and I am submissive. My foster brother Garrison and I love to play hard but sometimes he lets me know he's had enough.
If you will let me, I will be more than happy to lay on your lap even though I will be a big girl. I also like to sleep under the covers; my foster mom thinks I act like a cat, I just like to stay warm. I also like to sleep as close to the human as I can, constantly touching. Foster mom has given me a nickname, 'bad girl', because I get into trouble when I'm bored but she still thinks I'm a sweet heart. When my foster parents leave the house, they put me in a crate because I like to explore and chew things that do not belong to me. I am lucky because my foster parents spend a lot of time working from home so I do not spend a lot of time in the crate. I need a home that has as much energy as I do and understands puppy behavior from aggression. Small kids might find me too rough unless they have been around large active puppies. Sometimes I might mistake an arm for a chew toy. I do need to take a class on manners but I'm willing to learn if you will put the time and effort in to teaching me. Foster mom has been taking me to the dog park and I really enjoy it. So if you consider bringing me into your family, occasionally, doggy daycare and trips to the dog park would be a good idea.
Peaches - 2.4 Year Old Female
Not sure where this “Peaches” name came from but I've gotten used to it because I love my new life. I was an outside dog before this. Had some puppies for my prior people too. They didn't teach me a thing though. I'm picking it all up in my foster home. Like this sit thing? Why must I? But occasionally I'll do it to humor them and of course for the treat. When I got here I didn't know I wasn't supposed to tee tee in the house either, geez! But we have a dog door so now I go outside. When my foster people go away I hang out in the crate with the others. Btw I love them, we play a lot. Sometimes the people make us settle down, augh the heartworm treatment was a drag, for all of us!
We all love to chase squirrels and each other. We bark and growl at each other as we chase each other in the yard and we have so much fun. But those humans make us settle down anyways. See there were 6 of us once and one has been adopted. The rest of us are waiting for our lucky day now. I hear mine is coming soon!
Dewey - 11.7 Month Old Male
This will be the sweetest chocolate you will ever see. This regal pup will melt your heart.
Prior to being put in a foster home, he spent 2 weeks with a trainer. So, he has a leg up on most pups.
Dewey has been taught off, but can sleep on the couch. Since my dogs are allowed on the furniture, it was tough to not allow him.
He loves playing with other dogs and children, but due to some mouthing when being petted, he probably shouldn’t be around the very young. He walks good on a leash and takes treats very gently from your hand. He is learning to play Frisbee and can leap to attempt a catch.
He has a “knot” at the end of his tail which the vet said came from hitting the tip repeatedly on something. Nothing much can be done about that per the vet.
Dewey is a very happy and active young boy, but is a pretty calm puppy.
Bernie - 7.8 Month Old Male
Bernie is a loving dog with a good, cheerful personality and a very expressive face. He is a very small lab mix but has the retrieving and water love of a lab 2 or 3 times his size! He craves love and attention from both dogs and people, especially people. Bernie is a sweet guy, with an abundance of kisses to give and should settle down into a happy, well adjusted dog in one year or so. He is potty trained and is a good learner. He is learning and improving on his jumping, the sit command, his leash skills and to accept his crate. He isn’t interested in running off; he loves his people! He needs an active family and would be GREAT with kids. His small size and light weight makes him not one that is going to knock smaller kids over. Bernie was likely left outside and received very little attention, so he entertains himself with chewing most everything. This is why a crate will be necessary for Bernie for a good while until he understands clearly what is acceptable to chew on and what is not – particularly when you are not with him. He does have a little crate anxiety but settles down with other dogs. I have every confidence he will be a fantastic dog for many years to come once he has the confidence and adoration that he clearly did not receive his first months of puppyhood.
*This dog may not meet the breed standard for a Labrador Retriever
Evie - 3.1 Year Old Female
Evie is a sweet girl that is great with other dogs. She loves everyone and walks great on a leash. Evie is currently getting settled with her foster family, so please check back as she will be available for adoption soon.
Garrison - 2.7 Year Old Male
Hello! My name is Garrison. I try very hard to be good and my foster mom says I am a sweet boy. I do have a secret… I’m nervous about meeting new people. I’m looking for that special person who can help me be more confident and trusting. I take treats very gently. I love to play and would love another dog around to help me be comfortable… but probably not an alpha dog. I would probably do better in a home without kids. My greatest wish is to be in a home with someone who could spend a lot of time with me! I have done really well with my foster family and am so looking forward to having a family of my own. If you are the lucky one to help me, you will have a very loyal and loving companion! I really want to be Man’s Best Friend to someone!
Duke 2 - 7.1 Year Old Male
Hi, my name is Duke!!! I'm an adult, neutered, chocolate lab. No one knows my exact age but my doc says I'm about 6-7 years old (I have the energy of more like 4 or 5!!). I weighed in at 104 lbs at my last vet visit. I'm a big boy! A few months ago I was lost & lonely, running down the road, dragging a chain. A really nice lady found me and, after weeks of looking, she couldn't find my home. Maybe that was my blessing because the next thing I knew I was walking into a vet’s office. I was just happy to meet all the new people but then the doc delivered the bad news. I was heartworm positive! So my nice lady made sure that I had all the medications that I needed to get better. Now I'm ready to find my forever family.
My dream family (or person) will have nice big yard for me to run & play in. Someone to take me for long walks and hikes...or take me for a swim!!! I don't really fetch. I just prefer to keep the ball from everyone else. Hehehe! I think the couch is partially mine, so move over because I'm sitting up there with you! Oh, and my nice lady showed me how comfy a king size bed was, so I sleep there! I will sleep on the floor but I'll hang my head and make you feel guilty about it. I L♡VE to go outside and enjoy the fresh air but, other then counter surfing (I love butter!), I'm very good indoors. Because I'm a big boy I don't need a crate, in fact, I really, really don't like them. So, while my nice lady is at work, I spend my days with my 4 legged foster sister, lounging on the couch, the recliner, the bed and sometimes I just stretch out on the floor. My nice lady comes home at lunch to take us out to go potty so I haven't been left in ALL day. I love kids, all guys and gals, dogs, cats and ferrets. I think I might have lived with a hunter before (a little buckshot in the ear says a lot...plus I like to flush birds & rabbits out of the bushes) so I think, maybe, I shouldn't live with chickens or ducks?
I love to ride in the car so if you putter around your farm all day count me in! I love to go on walks & hikes but I'm not allowed to run free. I tend to like to discover my surroundings without my person... probably how I got lost to start with. I'm kinda strong so I'm working on not pulling on the leash. In the house, I will follow my person from room to room. I'll let you know if I've got to go potty by whining & bugging you until you get my hint. And if I THINK YOU are going outside I get REALLY excited to go, too. I'm a little demanding for attention and I will nudge you with my nose to get you to keep petting me. It's really cute and it works! I know that's a LOT of "about me" but if you think we could live happily ever after together, hit me up! Love, Duke
Aedan - 2.5 Month Old Male
I'm a chocolate baby who loves to be with his people. I play great with my litter mates and play with the bigger dogs in my foster house. I'm a talker so you'll know I'm around! I can't wait to cuddle and play with my forever family
Georgeanne - 2.5 Month Old Female
Georgeanne is a lovely black baby girl who is sweet as can be. She's a healthy, typical lab puppy and she'll be a great dog for your family.
Sparky - 1.6 Year Old Male
Sparky is a spunky guy that is good with other dogs and cats. Sparky is currently getting settled with his foster family, so please check back as he will be available for adoption soon.
