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.

Keaton - 4.6 Year Old Male
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.

Jefferson - 2.9 Year Old Male
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.

Sultan - 2.7 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!
Tramp - 2.4 Year Old Male
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!
Floppy - 6.3 Year Old Male
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!
Darion - 2.2 Year Old Male
Jaina - 1.7 Year Old Female
Jaina here...... Look into my eyes.....you know you want to adopt me....
I am a little cutie patootie... That's what my foster mom says. I'm also a Velcro girl and great at helping with yard work and minor repairs. I follow my foster dad everywhere in case he needs a hand and have become an expert at moral support and hanging out on the couch while he chills with his book and a glass of wine. I'm a quick study and have mastered this sit thing (food helps) and the dog door in no time at all.
I love to play with my foster siblings when they will and when not, no problem, I will go find something that squeaks to keep me busy. I had this thing called heartworm treatment so my activity has been limited but these nice folks have just started to take me on short walks. Being a country girl, you can't expect me to be perfect on that leash like those city dogs, but I get it that they do not want me to pull and I guess I'm not supposed to talk to the neighbor dogs too much. There are two cats that live in the garage and I love to chase them away. My foster parents scold me for it all the time, but I still think it's fun. One cool thing about this foster home is that they have the biggest water bowl in the back yard ever! My foster siblings think it's great fun to swim in it but not me. One day they held me in their arms and got me all wet but while it helped me to cool off, it's not my thing.
You can see this foster place is a nice place to hang out but I really want my own people and I'm pretty sure another dog needs this place on their journey. A few things I'll be looking for: I'd like another dog around. If not full time than at least often. I'll hang in the crate but please no more than 4 or 5 hours at a time. I'm patient but every girl has her limits. I'd really prefer a yard even if it's not a huge one after all, I'm a small girl so I don't need a lot of room. I want to go with you places and do things. Walking, hiking, camping all are fun and if there are little people, I'm great with that. I will take treats pretty nicely and when I do jump up, I will do it gently. Not sure about having cats inside, they don't always like my chasing games. If you think of any thing else just call my foster mom, she will tell you.
I know you want me, just look into my eyes....

Sal - 10.1 Month Old Male
Sal is a sweet, silly, youngster with tons of energy! He has come to us when his people had to move and found they couldn't take him with them. Still growing, Sal weighs 41 pounds right now. He loves to splash in the shallow end of the pool and play fetch in the back yard. He is great with other dogs and older kids. He is working on potty training but is improving daily! He will easily go into his crate with a little incentive and keeps it clean. He will just need a little more training to help him avoid accidents while out of his crate. Since he is younger he will need a family that has time to work with him and give him the attention and exercise he needs. Sal is an awesome dog that needs you to help him become the best buddy that he wants to be!
Tin Top - 5.1 Year Old Male
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 got 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 am around 5 years old. 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!
Snikkers - 3.5 Year Old Female
Lorena - 6.2 Year Old Female
Lorena is a sweet, very obedient Lab. She has bursts of energy, but has absolutely no problem lounging around the house all day. She absolutely loves car rides and meeting new people! She does great with kids and other dogs, after the proper introduction. At first she can come on a little strong to new dogs, but give her a little time and she settles down. Lorena's foster mom is a super dog trainer so he naturally has great manners. She has had extensive crate training to over come some kennel anxiety and is doing great! If you have another dog, great, Lorena would love to hang with them.
Sherry - 6 Year Old Female
Hello there! My name is Sherry. I was adopted 2 years ago from DFW Lab Rescue. My mother loves me very much. Sadly, her life is changing and she can't keep me or my buddy any longer. She cried a lot but promised me that she would make sure I found a great family.
I had a little trouble with my back legs when I was first adopted, but I had both knees repaired last year. I run a little funny, but it doesn't slow me down! I had a pool and loved to swim all the time. The doctor told my mom it was good for me. I don't like to go up lots of stairs though and I need help getting in the car but I love to go for rides and to take walks around the neighborhood and say hello to everyone.
They say I am beautiful and sweet. I love to play with kids and run around. I lived with cats and was curious at first, but now they are no big deal. I am house trained. I am crate trained, but after I settled in I didn't need to be crated. I am a really good girl. I hope I find my new family soon!
The Duke Of Earl - 7.2 Year Old Male
Update: The Duke of Earl is currently with a trainer who is working with him on his leash skills and basic manners.
Hello! I’d like you to meet The Duke of Earl (that’s ME)! I am hanging out with a wonderful DFW Lab Rescue foster, in search of my new “Kingdom”, or maybe “Dukedom”!
Let me tell you about myself… and then if you like what you hear, I’d love to meet YOU!
I am a big, strong boy. Hey, no one cared to work with me before, so I didn’t know much about this leash thing. My foster mom has been working with me on a leash, and I’ve made great improvements! If you would take me to further training, I would love this and I’d work very hard for you because I love to make you happy. (In return, I’ll teach YOU how to chase squirrels… fair trade, right?)
I love to play with a tennis ball. I am a good “crusher”, haha! I am a generally mellow fellow, and have been called a couch potato (hey, is that FOOD?)
I come in very handy if you want to scare away door to door salesmen… I will protect you and tell them to go away! No one will break in to your home while I’m on duty! Who needs a “No Solicitors” sign? I don’t like crates, but I have been very good in my foster home. I know where to do my business and will not bother your stuff. I wouldn’t mind some toys of my own, though!
I have learned to sit and take my food like a gentleman. I love humans, even kids who will give me scratches and belly rubs. I might accidently knock over little ones, though… I do not beg from your table at dinner time, but I may sneak a peek on the counter if you leave something up there that looks interesting to me (I may or may not have obtained bread in this manner…).
I wouldn’t necessarily mind another dog around. I would prefer a passive, submissive friend as there are some things I prefer not to share (rawhides, toys, food, water while I'm drinking). I have played with a puppy at my foster home but when I’m done I just go hang out and rest! I just need a slow introduction to another dog and to know that it will not hurt me, then I will be fine. (My foster mom can tell you about that in more detail… she’s GOOD)!
I love to chase squirrels… hey, what self-respecting Lab doesn’t? I LOVE peanut butter, too.
I am looking forward to finding that special family to love; you won’t find a more loyal friend than me. You just gotta appreciate the big guys! We’re just softies…
Love, Duke (THE Duke of Earl)
Shazzam - 6.2 Year Old Male
Hi everyone! My name is Shazzam. The vet says I am about 6, but my foster mom isn't so sure. She says I have something called "joie de vivre" that you might usually find in a younger pup. I'm a curious fella and love love LOVE my chew toys, bones, balls...you name it! I love to play with people and pups, especially fetch. I’ll even play with the cats if they’ll let me, but the ones here are scaredy cats so I just let them be. I’m really good in the house and usually don’t mess with anything that’s not mine. But sometimes the goodies on the kitchen counters are just too tempting and I need a gentle reminder. I am excellent in my crate and don’t make a peep, in fact, I’m a really quiet boy. You know what else, I love to snuggle. I’ll gladly be your couch buddy, but I like to sleep in my own bed. I’ll go to the door when I need out and can be trusted in the house. Foster mom says I’m super sweet and easy peasy but I’m not sure what that means. All I know is I’m up for any adventure and am ready to love my new family fiercely.
So if you’re looking for an affectionate, playful and loyal companion, add me to your list and let’s make a date!
Nysa - 7.7 Year Old Female
Betsy - 2.1 Year Old Female
Betsy is generally calm and gentle and will make someone a wonderful companion. She travels in the car calmly and walks on a leash with minimal pulling. She wants to be with you all the time. She keeps her crate clean and has had no accidents in the house. In fact, she has learned to stand at the back door to signal a need to go outside. She sleeps all night and has exhibited no chewing or similar behaviors. She and our resident lab have become good buddies eat next to each other nicely. She is so gentle, you can move her food bowl around while she's eating or even put your hand in the bowl. She has been with one six year old and was chiefly indifferent.
She does need to learn some manners, and most important she wants to bolt at the front door, so she will for now need restraining or restriction to a separate room. However, she wants to please you, so she can learn manners and to refrain from bolting. She is an absolute sweetheart who will adapt quickly to a new family.
Here's a short video of Betsy playing with foster sibling Bailey -> https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=
Cruise - 5.3 Month Old Male
Cruise is an amazing young love bug and beautiful yellow boy with a pink nose. He is great on the leash already and has blended well with our 3 other dogs. He had his first swim last night and loved the water. He just wants to be loved and to cuddle with you. His ideal home will have a big brother/sister dog and an at home or work from home human who can give him lots of love and time. You will fall in love with this boy once you meet him.

Sammy - 8.3 Month Old Male
Hi, my name is Sammy and I am a sweet pup! I am looking for a new family with lots of love and energy! My favorite things to do are play with my squeaky toys and foster brothers. I am looking for a family with kids to call my forever home. It would be best to have a little bit older kids as my wiggle bottom tends to knock the little ones over.
I am young and still learning but my foster dad says I am a super smart doggy. I get to learn new things every day like sit, leave it, and drop. Sometimes I need a little encouragement to go into my crate but I get comfortable when I am inside and do not make a lot of noise. There is this furry little creature they call kitty that I am very comfortable with. All I want to do is play hide and go seek with her but she gives me little love taps on the nose. I love walks around the block and do well on my leash unless I see a SQUIRREL! or jogger. I like other people and dogs once I get to interact but will give a loud woof when I first see them.
Though I am a really good boy, my new family will need to take me to classes as I love to learn and will be able to do amazing things. Please consider me as your forever pup. I will be a loyal companion for many years to come.
Dilly - 2.9 Month Old Male
Hi I’m Dilly. Don't be distracted by how cool my name is...I'm cooler than my name even! Speaking of distractions, my foster Mom says I’m easily distracted by leaves, squirrels, and anything that moves - you name it, I'll investigate! I think I’m just curious, like any young guy would be! I like other dogs, but I’m also fine exploring on my own with my humans! I’m almost potty trained (clearly I'm super smart), and am looking for a place to call my forever home.
Carol - 2.9 Month Old Female
Carol is a beautiful and very confident little chocolate girl who is into everything and is so very smart. She has just found her running legs and everything is done very fast with her! Right now, she is not a big snuggler as she's just too busy checking out the world and all those wonderful toys she loves playing with. Carol is super sociable with other dogs and with people. She is ready to have a forever home of her own and explore what you have to offer up!
