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.

Benedict - 4.6 Year Old Male
Initial Intake information: Black Male, Avail now
Benedict is a beautiful black Lab who is looking for his forever home. He loves the water and would like a swimming pool or trips to the lake. He also strongly requests a home where someone will play ball or hide and seek with him every day… he’s good at those games and loves toys! Benedict would do best with an experienced Lab family. He needs consistency and kindness, with a gentle firmness to remind him of rules he is supposed to follow (think: the strong-willed child, lol). He has responded very well to his foster family and he will make someone a great companion!
Jefferson - 3.3 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!
*This dog may not meet the breed standard for a Labrador Retriever.
Lucky - 7.8 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male -80 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available date mid Jan
Lucky is currently getting settled in with us, please check back soon for updates
Lumpkins - 2.4 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Information: yellow - Male - 58 lbs. Available now.
Lumpkins is your typical sweet energetic lab. He loves to play with tennis balls and ropes (tug-of-war being a favorite). He is very smart and trainable but does needs to be with a family that can interact and play with him regularly as he has a lot of energy. Lumpkins is crate trained but can also be trusted outside of the crate when you are gone for short periods. He is good with other dogs (he has not been cat tested), but is a bit of an attention hog so .... I mean he is a handsome boy!!! At night, Lumpkins sleeps outside of the crate either on his foster parents bed or his dog bed and if properly exercised he crashes hard and sleeps soundly through the night.
Lumpkins is super smart and has excellent manners. He knows how to sit, shake, and lay down and does not counter surf. He is also happy to share and when he may occasionally look to steal toys from our other dogs mouth, a quick no and he will stop trying. He knows where to do his business, is not a runner or an escape artist and quickly comes when his name is called. Lumpkins is also good with children but as he is still young would probably do best with older kids given his energy/play level.
As no one is perfect, Lumkins does still need some fine tuning on his leash skills and he gets very exited when people or dogs walk by. Overall Lumpkins is a very sweet loveable pup who loves everyone just wants to be loved on and play his little heart out. This boy will steal your heart and love you unconditionally!
Tramp - 2.8 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 70 lbs - Available now
Tramp is a big, super-sweet, playful, shy boy. He is house-trained, somewhat crate-trained, and needs some work on the leash. He knows basic commands, and lives to please. He wants to be near you, but is content to hang out on his comfy dog bed sometimes, too. He’s very smart, and understands what you want from him quickly. He does have a sensitive stomach, and needs sensitive stomach food, and limited car rides. He’s a big ol’ homebody. He gets along well with female dogs and other male dogs smaller than he is, and is very gentle with children; however, he might do best around older children because of his size.
If you’re looking for a gentle giant to complete your family, Tramp is your boy!
Brandi - 3.7 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Chocolate Female - 77 lbs - Heartworm postitvie - Est available Early/Mid Jan
Cookie - 6.7 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Chocolate Female - 59 lbs - Heartworm negative - Avail Now
Cookie is an absolutely phenomenally super sweet pup! Cookie came into the shelter having been very neglected, missing half her fur from an extreme allergic reaction to excessive flea bites. She also had several small lumps on her back that were removed and not an issue. After some some fantastic vet care and her fosters giving her lots of medicated baths, her fur is doing fabulous!
Cookie is super sweet, loves cuddles, kisses and gets along with other most dogs and all kids. Cookie is crate trained, potty trained, knows sit, down, stay, here, place, kennel, off, leave it, and has great leash manners. Cookie is an absolutely wonderful dog who will make a fabulous addition to any family!!!
Murl - 1.7 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 62 lbs - Available now
My name is Murl, and I’m learning to love this foster place! I’ve only been here a little while and I can already use a doggie door. I’m learning so much here at my foster home. Mom says I’m a bright, good boy. She plays fetch with me a lot, and I’m getting better at dropping the toy for her. She was so happy when I rang the bells for the first time to go outside! I can also stand at the door and whine to be let outside or shoot out the doggie door when I want to show off.
I really enjoy playing keep away with my foster sister. The cows don’t want to play through the fence, but I take my toys to them anyway. I love my crate at night, and I’m catching on to keeping out of the kitchen when mom’s busy. She gives me treats when I mind her. It’s pretty cool here, but I can’t wait until I’m ready for my new, permanent home. I have lots of toys to squeeze and chew, but Mom doesn’t give me soft things anymore because I love to shred. Mom says I'm a typical young guy and I guess that's good. I have a foster sister, a beagle mix, and we like to play like dogs do.
I’m trying to remember not to jump on people, and I’m learning not to jump on the furniture. There are many rules here!! Like no counter surfing, no sitting in Mom’s lap, no barking at the parrot and no stealing socks. But I get sooooo much exercise and love here that learning a few manners seems worth it.
Note from Mom: Murl is a big baby. He’s energetic, loving, and a true shadower. He’s a work in progress who responds well to treat incentives as well as consistent gentle correction. He is making strides every day and has some challenges including picking up most things around the house that just happen to be left behind. But he is such a good dog and learns so quickly that the attention and love of the right family will be what is needed for him to be the warm, goofy and loving family pet you are looking for!!
Twinkle - 4.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 78 lbs - Available now.
Twinkle is a super sweet, handsome boy with all the traits of a great family Labrador. A gently giant (around 85 pounds), he is my constant companion and loves to hang out with people all day (just in case you have a treat, or willing to give him a pet). He is housetrained and has learned basic commands (sit, off) and walk well on a leash. Twinkle likes to cuddle, is very affectionate and gets along well with other dogs. Did I mention he really likes affection and getting belly rubs…His perfect family would be able to spend time with him chilling out. He’s low energy, laid back and not crazy about car rides. He was a stray before getting his “new leash on life”, is now doing great and ready for adoption. I think he will be a great family pet.
Ralphie - 2.1 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Information: Black - Male - 60 lbs. Available now.
Frito - 1.6 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 50 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available is TBD after arrival in foster home
Frito is a tender and sweet pup. He came to rescue as stray and when he first arrived was very submissive. He seemed to be more comfortable outside than in the house, and he didn't touch his toys. In just over a week he is coming out of his shell and although he still exhibits the occasional shyness, he is excited to come when he's called, he is comfortable enough to nap in the middle of the floor or on the couch, and he's a ball of sunshine when we wake up in the morning. Over the past week, his tail has gone from between his legs to wagging with gusto! With time and trust, he will become a typical Lab.
Frito was underweight when he arrived and he already looks like he is filling out. He loves getting a spoonful of peanut butter with his medicine and is really enjoying getting treats along with a consistent feeding schedule.
Frito can be shy with new visitors, but once he is settled he isn't too bashful – especially when he wants someone to pet him!! Overall, Frito is a quiet and timid boy that is getting comfortable in a loving home where he loves to cuddle while he learns to play (something foreign to him at this time). Frito does love his walks and seems to really like being on the leash. He zig-zags and loves investigating, so walks can take a while to finish, but they encourage trust and are another great opportunity to bond with him. On walks, he has met a few other dogs and seemed perfectly sweet meeting them, but we have not exposed him to cats.
Frito can sit on command and occasionally will lay down. He is a very smart boy and is now working on shake. He will come to his name, "come here", and kiss noises. Frito is an awesome dog and will be best in a family willing to give him time to blossom into that wonderful playful and goofy lab that is likely in there. He is showing great signs of improvement and will flourish with a patient and loving forever family.
Tin Top - 5.5 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 65 lbs - Available Now
My name is Tin Top and I am a truly amazing dog! My life kind of is like one of those country songs that starts out sad and then ends up happy. My sad start was being found on a rural rode with a gunshot wound in my shoulder. It shattered my front leg, so the amazing vet and his team had to remove it. But then they worked with me and helped me learn to walk on three legs. Cool huh? Soon a foster for DFW Lab Rescue came and took me to his home. I get lots of food (I was very, very, skinny), a nice warm cozy bed and tons of love from my foster parents. There are two foster lab brothers that I like but I am not really into playing with them.
Now I take longer and longer walks every day (walks are my favorite thing), I still eat, I sometimes go in a kennel but only if my foster parents are gone for a long time, I sleep in that cozy bed at night, I tried swimming but prefer floating in a tube, and I spend my day looking for tummy rubs. I just like to chill and occasionally bark at the computer printer. I am potty trained, and I play with toys on occasion but I am not destructive.
Foster mom says I will need to stay slim and right now I am about 59 pounds. Whoever adopts me will need to be able to pick me up to get me in a high SUV or truck (or a high bed). I am looking for my forever home so I can have that happy ending that I so deserve. Who knows… maybe it is your lucky day and you will get to call me your forever dog. Hey, don’t forget to check out my new video before you leave!

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

Tobie - 1.3 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Information: Chocolate - Male - 70 lbs. Heartworm Negative. Est. available date Early Jan
My name is Tobie and my foster mom says I am one sweet boy! I am just a young guy, and am still a puppy. I love to play, fetch, and chase my foster brother around the yard (and the house!) and my foster mom said that I behave very well for my age. I have puppy energy, but I am a pleaser and will try to do my best to behave. Foster mom told me on the first day that I cannot jump on the kitchen counters and so far I am listening!
I like my crate, but prefer to only go in if you give me a treat or a toy and I have slept in my crate all night and don't make a sound. When foster mom lets me sleep in her room, I sleep well in my dog bed too. She says I snore pretty loud, but that doesn't bother me and once I get rested, I am ready to play again. I don't get on the furniture, but I do like to jump and put my paws in my foster mom's lap. She says I am spoiled rotten already (that’s good right?) and I really like to snuggle and give kisses.
I like to take long walks and would be a great running or walking partner. I only pull a little, mostly when I want to stop and smell everything. My foster mom says I am doing well with walking, but thinks I would be best for a jogger to keep me moving and burning the puppy energy.
I love playing with the foster(dog) bother and sister and so far I like every dog I see. I have seen a few cats when out walking but don't really know if I like them or not so I really haven't paid them any attention. I do still jump a bit, I am still a puppy, so they say I may not be a good fit for really small children.
I would love to find a home where I can play and get lots of love and where I can give you lots of love back. Who needs a fun guy with tons of potential!?

Initial intake information: Chocolate Female - 63 lbs - Available now.
Sammee - 4.8 Year Old Female
Initial Intake Information: Chocolate - Female - 70 lbs. Heartworm Negative. Avail now
Ok, let me guess, you are looking for a dog that does not chew up anything, sleeps in her dog bed all night, good in the house all day when you go to work, comes when you call her and stays at your side. Probably want one that is good with people, little dogs and big dogs. Let’s throw in one that has no anxiety of any kind just to make it even more difficult. Well look no further, you just described me! My name is Sammee and I am so happy to be safe with this great rescue. I had a family once and they took very good care of me. I can walk on a leash but right now I am a little uncertain of where you are taking me. I would not even consider begging while you eat. I take treats gently and never challenge my foster sibling for her food. I’m coming soon, so better get ready and ask for me, because I am ready to learn!
Kelsey - 1.6 Year Old Female
Initial Intake Information: Black - female - 53 lbs. Available now
Hi! My name is Kelsey and I'm a sweet and fairly young girl. I am very eager to please and pretty smart but not very confident yet that I am getting it right so I need loads of encouragement and clear direction. I have been working on learning some manners with my foster mom and want to go to a home where I can continue that work. And did you notice that I am very very pretty!
I have mastered sit and to wait for my treats and food and am getting pretty good at cuddles; I do like to be close to you but am a bit of a fidget until I am sure you are OK with it. I am not a big barker and I also sleep in my kennel without issues...except I do like a chew on my bed or any dog bed when I get anxious. I don't touch anything else I am not supposed to so my foster mom is working on my bed arrangements so I don't get too nervous and giving me toys to chew which I really like. I have looked at the pool but not tried a swim yet as not quite sure what to do. I would love someone who can show me the way. I am good in the car and like to go out and about with my foster mom as I am really interested in everything.... and did I mention I am really very smart.
I am good with the other dogs in the house (all labs like me) and am happy to share toys and treats. I don’t counter surf and am easy going about food. I have been good with all humans so far. I haven’t met any cats, small children, or other household pets so not sure how that would go. I am a bundle of energy at times so I might prefer kids who are bigger than me.
I really really want to love just everyone – and since I am super smart I am figuring out how to do it right very fast now that I'm in a nice home. My foster Mom believes the sky is the limit for me with the right family! I can't wait to finally meet that right family....is that you?
Rebel - 11 Month Old Male
Initial Intake Information: Yellow - Male - 50 lbs. Available now.
Sailor - 1.2 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 52 lbs - Heartworm negative - avail now
Sailor is a super sweet and very loving black female youngster. She loves to play fetch and swim. She gets along great with her foster dog sisters and she does well with cats. She enjoys walks but still needs some leash work to perfect this exercise thing. She is house trained and crate trained. Her only flaw is that she jumps up on you when you first see her, but hey, she’s so excited to see you! She doesn’t counter surf or chew inappropriate things and she’s not a power chewer, so she plays with toys and they actually survive! She enjoys ropes and balls and toys that squeak or that have the promise of a treat. She has a lot of energy, so she needs a medium or large dog to play with in a yard or a family that will provide plenty of exercise for her.
Sailor is a Velcro dog and she’s quite trustworthy in the house already. She does get up on furniture where she likes to lie next to you and put her head in your lap while you watch TV (and pet her, of course). She’s going to be an awesome addition to a lucky family.
