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.

Jefferson - 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 is protective of his foster, his home and the vehicles he rides in. He will alert to possible intruders at the door or nearby and therefore does best with a slow introduction to strangers. 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.

Tramp - 2.5 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!
Carolyn - 5.4 Year Old Female
Floppy - 6.4 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 67 lbs
Hi – My name is Floppy, I know a funny name for a Lab. About me – I am a small black Lab. I was very underweight when I arrived at my foster home but I am filling out nicely. I love to eat! I was neutered and had heartworm treatment. I am recovering well from both and I am on my last few weeks of resting from the heartworm treatment.
I have been a very good boy in the house – I am potty trained, I haven’t eaten anything, I don’t get on the counters, etc… I know sit and shake. I was very scared one night when it stormed outside and stayed right by everyone. I am learning to accept time in my crate but I am known to voice my objection for awhile when they put me in.
There is another Lab here that I like to rastle with now. I was unsure about this whole playing thing in the beginning but I am learning. I am also not sure what this ball retrieving thing is about. There is a 10 year old real boy here but I am not too sure what to do with him either. I do like to be petted under my chin but I'm not ready of pets on my head. Since food was scarce before, I am not so gentle with food and/or snacks just yet. My foster parents say it has taken some time for me to get used to being around people and the other dog, I am just unsure of things, how to play, that people want to pet me, but I have warmed up and learned a lot in the past few months.
Floppy would probably be best in a home without really young children. He is also not well suited for apartment living. He has made great progress on warming up to everyone in our house while he has been in our foster home. Floppy will need just love and care and he will continue to blossom into a great dog!
Blakely - 2.3 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 55 lbs - Available now
Blakely is a spirited and small (about 50 pounds) loveable Lab! She loves to run, dunk her toys in water, swim and play fetch over and over again. She is potty trained and crate trained. She has even had some puppy 101 training but still needs work on a leash. She is a happy student and very eager to please, but honestly, she wants to swim, run and play ball. She would love a family with a big yard, a pool, and lots of humans to play fetch with. Blakely is good with other big dogs - little dogs are a little tougher and take longer introductions. This girl is going to grow into a great dog with the right active family to help her burn off this puppy energy!
Anduin - 5.3 Year Old Male
Intake information: Black Male - 63 lbs - Available now
Liberty - 2.2 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 55 lbs - Available now
Liberty is a super sweet girl who is very happy, active and outgoing. Weighing around 60 pounds, she is a true “rescue” pup and had at least one litter of pups. She is healthy and starting to learn basic manners.
She knows basic commands (sit and is working on “stay”), walks pretty-well on a leash and does well in her crate at night. She can sometimes be timid in new situations and if startled. I think she will do well with a calm, easy going family who will give her lots of love and attention.
She is very interested in chasing bunnies and squirrels, so may not do well with cats and will definitely bark at other dogs from across the street. She does get along well with our lab, likes to play tug and tries to steal all the toys.
Amara - 10.3 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female (Mix) - 40 lbs - Available now
Hi! My name is Amara and although I haven’t quite learned to respond to this rescue name, I am responsive to my foster parents requests and commands. Considering I was without a home for a little while, I am very responsive to training and always attentive to my foster parents and am very curious. Personally, this foster thing with a roof, good food and lots of love is awesome! I love to chew but I haven’t chewed on anything I wasn’t supposed to because I always have lots of toys to play with. I love people and other dogs and always let them know this is their house. Everyone says I’m submissive with other dogs at first but pretty soon they always warm up to me.
I like my kennel during the day while my parents are gone and don't mind periodic kenneling throughout the day if my parents are busy. Some times I bark a few times when put in my kennel but that’s just to let my parents know I'm good and will be here when they are ready. Then I lay down and go to sleep or play with my toys. I am potty trained like to go out out to do my business 30 minutes after eating and have found a favorite spot to go potty. Sure I smell everywhere but go back to the same spot.
I love to snuggle especially with my daddy (men). My best quality is how well I behave on a leash. I don’t pull on the leash and I always look back at my foster parent to see how I’m doing. Oh and I love to go running along side my parent. I am great riding in the car and love the back seat but like to observe what’s going on. Overall, I guess you can say I'm a pretty awesome girl. Who wants a great girl to come be part of their family?

Tin Top - 5.2 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!
Rayne - 2.2 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 65 lbs - Available now
Hi. I’m Rayne. I’m a beautiful black Lab who loves to snuggle. My foster mom says I’m super sweet. I’m house-trained and perfectly behaved while she’s away at work. I earned free run of the house my first day at my foster home (that's how well-behaved I am.) I am dog friendly, people friendly and lap friendly! My foster mom is working on things like my leash training, sit and socializing. I am a very shy girl who just wants to know that I can trust you.
Now my foster mom has some stuff to add below!
Rayne will probably be best in a home without young children. She has made great progress on warming up to her foster mom but will need love and patience to give her the chance to trust again. It seems that Rayne has never been played with and does not know what a ball or a toy is for. I am sure she would love to learn all that with a patient loving family.
Rayne has a very sweet temperament and once she is yours, you won't find a sweeter dog that just wants to be a part of the family. Who is going to step up for this great girl, give her a little time to get settled in and then be happy they did!
Harris - 11.5 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male - 62 lbs - Avail Now
Hi! I'm Harris, a gorgeous chocolate male pup! I'm doing great in my foster home - I've learned to "sit" and I LOVE to play fetch. I am not an alpha dog - I submitted quickly to the other dogs in the house, and now we love to play together. We like to wrestle and play chase. I'm pretty good on a leash, and don't mind the crate IF it is properly placed. My foster parents can tell you my preferences. They will also give you the "right" toys, which (no surprise) are BALLS! If I get mouthy (I'm a puppy-remember?) then give me a ball and I am absolutely obsessed with it. Mom says it's like a pacifier for me (so keep some in your pocket). I am not always interested in my dog food, but I am very interested in anything you are eating. If I do get into the wrong dog food bowl, Mom can remove it with no issue. Mom gave me a bath and I didn't mind. I don't have a mean bone in my body - but I do like to chew a bone! Nylabone, that is. Mom said she wouldn't mind keeping me, but then she wouldn't be able to foster more dogs. So I'm guess that means you can have me and be my furever home!
Etta - 2.1 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female Puppy Est available date - Available now
Hi I'm Etta and my foster mom says I'm the most chill/loving puppy she has ever fostered. I have no idea what that means but I am super sweet and inquisitive. I love belly scratches especially if you let me flea your arm during them. I am doing good at potty training and will come running when you call my name and even sit for a treat! I am very good in my kennel, don't tell anyone but my foster mom sneaks me into the bed sometimes and I will sleep over 5 hours straight snuggling with her. When I am up I love to explore the backyard and run. I adapt very well to a routine and would do best in a family with a backyard and older children. I also need an active family that can exercise me daily. Best fit would be to have someone at home or a family with a great puppy plan for helping me learn. If your looking for a baby I'm just the ticket, my foster mom knows I will make a wonderful and loyal addition to your family!!!
Sade - 2.1 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female Puppy - Avail now
Hi my name is Sade! My foster mom says I am a typical Lab puppy. I don't know what that means but I know I love to run, explore the yard and kiss. I'm doing really well at potty and kennel training but someone home with me much of the time will help. I'm very smart and have learned to come when you call my name and have even learned to sit, especially for a small treat. I love to snuggle with my foster mom especially when I'm napping, don't tell anyone but she sneaks me in the bed sometimes. I will do best with someone home or a perfected puppy plan in place and a backyard for me to run. I would also need an active family who likes to exercise me daily. If your looking for a sweet baby girl I'm just what the doctor ordered. My foster mom just knows I'll make a most wonderful addition to your family.
Mauna - 8.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female - 60 lbs - Available now
My new name is Mauna and I am so happy to be safe with this great rescue. See I had a family once and they took very good care of me. So I am not really sure how I found myself astray and at the shelter. Either way, you should know that I am the perfect gal. I am of beautiful English decent as you Lab folks refer to us. I have the softest fur that my foster mom says feels like cotton. I am gracious in the house and have no need for a crate. 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 do however, get excited about my own meals. I take treats gently and never challenge my foster siblings for their food. I am not crazy about that swimming pool like the others are but do like being wet and participating in the play with them. I do have a bit of a stiff walk and my age is just a guess.
So if you are after a young pup, well that is not me, but if you want a quiet and peaceful girl with loads of love to share, we may need to meet. In the meantime, my foster mom says I can stay as long as I like cause she likes me that much.
Keaton - 4.7 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male (Mixed) - 66 lbs - Available Now
Looking for a calm, mature boy? One that doesn’t jump on people, takes treats nice, rides well in the car, stays off the furniture? You’re looking at the boy for you!
I was adopted from DFWLRR as a pup, around 5 months of age, but my family was having to do a lot of traveling out of the country and didn’t have the time for me anymore. Luckily, I found my way back to the rescue but not without a few scary moments. I am very fortunate now to be safe once again in a foster home with new doggy friends to play with and a huge yard to run in.
I can be a little shy at first, but that might change once I get out and socialize a little more. I ride great in the car. I got right in and stayed sitting or laying down on the floorboard in the backseat. I know sit, down and stay (to a point, anyways). At around 60lbs., I do need to work with walking on a leash, I just get excited when I see the leash.
I am totally housetrained and trustworthy in the house. I only chew on a few dog bones, and really don’t know anything about other dog toys. I haven’t really learned to retrieve but love to chase the other dogs while they play frisbee. I don’t do any mouthing, nor do I counter surf. I know, 2 bad habits that I don’t do, right!
Cats. Let’s talk about those little pesky furry animals. Is see one through the window sometimes and start barking. I might not be the right dog for you if you have one of those, just to be on the safe side.
I can’t wait to start looking for my forever home and meeting some wonderful people on the next leg of my journey.
Foster mom here. After being here for 2 weeks, Keaton has settled in and is really opening up. He enjoys running out the doggy door and barking at whatever is out there with the other dogs. He has been so good, not one thing to be corrected for. We are still working on leash work with a gentle lead. He will be a great addition to any family.
*This dog may not meet the breed standard for a Labrador Retriever.
Sultan - 2.8 Year Old Male
Hi I’m Sultan. I’m a big boy at 90 pounds so I’m told I can be a lot to handle. It’s not that I’m overly energetic because I can be chill and be a big teddy bear. It’s just that I don’t realize my size and I am sometimes quite playful.
At night we are free to sleep on the dog beds or in the bedroom although I’ve been caught sneaking out to enjoy the couch. Now I just do that when no one is around.
During the day I’m free to roam the house, even when no one is around. I have been quite trustworthy. Yep, I totally made everyone feel bad about making me stay in that crate. It just wasn’t for me. I like to go on runs, play and chew up my toys, and go for a ride especially if I get to stick my head out the window. That’s my fav for sure! I do like it inside but really want to be with someone all the time whether its inside or out. I’m also good at entertaining myself outside. Whether its splashing around in the pool or keeping squirrels out of my yard!
Most of all I want to be with you, and play with you and be with you. Let me know if you think you may be right person for me!
Messi - 4.3 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 68 lbs
Hi! My name is Messi! I want you to know that my name is nothing like my personality! I am cute, laid back handsome guy that can't wait to get to my furever home. I like my 3 foster brothers, but honestly, I would love to be in a home where I get most of the attention! I love to play fetch with the mini frisbee, and can out run all 3 of my foster siblings. I know how to sit and love to go for walks. My favorite thing is to just be outside. I roam the yard, and the heat doesn't bother me at all. My foster mom says that I'm good in the crate, but it takes 10-15 minutes for me to settle in before I stop barking. I just like to be with the pack! Oh, and by the way, watch the food on the counter as I've been known to surf for left overs. I am house trained and haven't had an accident yet!
My foster mom says that I'm so much cuter in real life than the pictures she took of me. I'm 68 pounds of pure lab cuteness. I can't wait to meet you!
Cookie - 6.3 Year Old Female
Kissing Labrador available for adoption!!! 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 and her fur is doing fabulous! We can’t guarantee it will all grow back perfectly but she is looking much better every day!
Cookie is super sweet, loves cuddles, gives TONS of kisses and gets along with other dogs. Cookie is crate trained, potty trained, knows sit, and is working on down. She does fine when left out in the house all day....except.....she is a counter surfer! If you leave any delicious food within reach she will definitely snack on it when you aren’t looking. Cookie is an absolutely wonderful dog who will make a fabulous addition to any family!!! (Ps....I’m not kidding about the kisses.....if you don’t like doggie kisses in the face - she's probably not your girl!!)
Lebron - 1.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 65 lbs - Available now
Hi. I am Lebron. A bit about me. I had a family with other dogs and small kids but my people moved and dropped me off at a shelter. I am not sure why as I am a great young Lab. I spent a month there and then the wonderful volunteers from DFW Lab Rescue got me out! I am now with a great foster family who tells me I'm great and showers me with love. I am house trained. I can sit. I do ok in the crate. I get along great with other people and the other two foster brother Labs. I love to play and am trying to figure out this swimming thing. I am learning how to play ball. I love walks and am pretty good on the leash too. At home, I love to follow my foster people around when I'm not playing with the other Labs. I love to snuggle with them and have them hold my paw and scratch my back.
I am looking for a family that I can love and that will love me back for the rest of my life. If you are looking for a fun, outgoing, playful, affectionate, wonderful and loving lab - I’m your boy! Ask for me and let me love on you.

Denny - 2.1 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - puppy - Available now
Hi everyone, Denny here. Just wanted to let you know a little about me. I’m pretty much your typical puppy, although my Foster Mom said i’m a pretty calm for being a puppy. I’m working on my potty training and as long as you get me out every 1-2 hours I’m doing really well. I keep a clean crate and can sleep all night. At this young age, I really need to be with a family that is home a lot. I’m pretty darn cute if I do say so. Can’t wait to meet you, Just so you know, I give really good puppy kisses.
Isaac - 2.1 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - puppy - Avail now
Hi, I am Isaac! I'm as cute a little puppy as you can get. I an told I'm a typical puppy! I like to chew on things like soft toys, crate etc. and I like to talk, so I bark sometimes to gain attention. My foster Mom calls me a smart boy as I learned to use training pads in a short time and started looking to the backdoor for potty breaks. My foster mom says I can be trained easily. I am really good with kids too. I like playing and jumping around them. Initially, I am a bit shy but get along fairly quickly. I need your love and care and love time with my humans so I would prefer a family who has the patience to train me and spend time with me. I know that once you pick me - we will be best friend and the perfect companions for life.

Wilson - 2.1 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - puppy -avail now
Hi everyone Wilson here. I’m your typical your puppy. I’m very curious and love to play. I’m a pretty calm as far as puppies go. I’m still working on my potty training but doing well if you can get me outside every few hours I keep a clean crate and sleep all night. I’m doing well with my crate training, I may cry for a few minutes but settle right down after a few min. I hope you like to snuggle, because when I get tired, there is nothing better.
Madalin - 4.6 Month Old Female
Hi everyone! Madalin here - I am just chilling and relaxing at my foster mom's house while I wait to meet you. I spent some time living outside and inside is soooo much better!! I have soft things to lay on and lots of toys to play with and a dog friend that I love! She is great but very big! I like to follow and chase her in the back yard and bite/play with her and sometimes - like all sisters - annoy her. But we LOVE each other!
I'm doing great and learning to do fun dog things, like go on walks, sit for treats and I'm totally into smelling or trying out everything new. I'm working on potty training and if you take me out a lot, I am very good. If we get behind, I am good and tend to use the puppy pads I learned on. I go in my crate with a little help and sleep in my crate overnight. I'm very good for about 6-8 hours and my foster mom is so proud of me! I let her know when I wake up but not very loudly....I'm very gentle at waking her up.
My foster mom says I'm super sweet and learning not to bite like any typical puppy. I'm getting better every day and mom says a good family that is well versed in Puppy 101 training, lots of toys and patience - will be best for me. Mom says you need to take me home before she keeps me and that I'm going to make a great and loyal dog for someone! My only question is....Is that someone you?
Berkeley - 6.9 Year Old Male
Initial intake information Chocolate Male - 115 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available date - Mid Sept
Hello-my name is Berkeley, my foster says I am a gentle giant, so don’t let my size scare you. No lab is better with kids, I don’t jump up, or steel their cookies, and I have all around good manners. Want one that is good on the leash, that’s me, a five year old can walk me. What is best of all is I can be trusted in the house for as long as you need, I don’t touch anything. I don’t try to bolt out the door when open, I like to lay on the floor when you have dinner and work at your desk. I could go on and on but it would begin to sound like I am bragging. Ok, to be totally honest I got two issues, one, I can’t stay out of the swimming pool, no way, I would swim every time I go outside if I could. Second, I will eat anything you put in front of me and my last owner did just that. The vet put me on a diet, but I am doing well.
Two most favorite things to do is, go on walks, and retrieve the tennis ball. I am looking for my next forever home, I can fit in with just about any family, kids, and dogs, big or little, cats I am not very fond of. I would like a yard big enough that you could throw the ball, and my dream home, would have an Olympic heated swimming pool.
