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.

Angelica - 10.4 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 64 lbs
Angelica is a happy, active girl. She loves her dog friends, exploring on her walks, and playing tug o war. She knows several commands and loves snuggling with her humans of course too.
Nugent - 1.5 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate male 60 lbs -
This happy, go lucky boy is full of curiosity and makes us laugh. He is at his happiest when investigating his surroundings and is able to get in some quality playtime. We believe Nugent is a lucky dog! He was abandoned with other dogs and was brought into the DFW Lab Rescue group needing lots of love, snacks and guidance on how to be a dog. Nugent received corrective surgery for an old injury that occurred prior to being brought into the rescue group. As luck would have it he worked hard at being a model patient, followed the doctor’s orders, learned to walk on a leash as part of daily physical therapy sessions and received his graduating bone treats as a result! Nugent is ready for his own family, to continue puppy training and to enjoy discovering what it’s like to just be a good dog.
This hunk of silver love is such a pleaser and is ready for his next lucky adventure.
Sherlock - 1.7 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate male 89 lbs
Let me introduce myself I’m Sherlock. I’m a 90 lbs male that loves to play ball and run in the back yard. My fosters say I walk on a leash well and I get along well with other humans and other dogs. I'm really a good guy but I have a lot of energy and I really like staying busy. They say I’m strong willed, so I need an alpha human, a lot of patience & mental and physical exercise every day to keep me out of trouble. My foster mom says if you have another dog that likes to play, a lot, that might be best.
Eventually, I'm sure I will slow down but it might be a while. I know I am gonna be a great dog someday, but it will take the right family that understands the needs of an active, young, lab and is committed to helping me burn off some of my big personality every day!
Annastasia - 5.6 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Chocolate Female 86 lbs -
Annastasia is a beautiful, friendly, and very smart chocolate lab. She loves going for walks, playing fetch and retrieving. “Anna” is crate trained and housebroken. She is a bit strong-willed when it comes to playing. She will bring you her ball to throw until she is exhausted. For this reason, she will need an owner who will set boundaries and follow through on training until she masters the command, “enough”.
Annastasia has let us know that she would do best as an only dog as she is not fond of sharing (see the strong-willed part above). We have no information on how she would respond to cats. This sweet girl with a gorgeous auburn coat knows several commands, takes treats gently and sleeps through the night on her bed. She’s a real princess!
Wolfgang - 2.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male 93.6 lbs - Heartworm negative - late June
Hi! My official name is Wolfgang, but my foster mom calls me good boy. To be honest I let it slide, she has a lot on her plate with me and my three foster brothers. So, to help out I have been on my best behavior, displaying my gentleman like manners, response to basic commands, tolerance to my old grumpy foster brother, meal time etiquette, and proper bedtime routine. According to my foster mom, I’m nearly perfect!
She says once I perfect my leash manners I will be a 10/10! She has so much confidence in me, I have free reign of the house when the humans are away. Honestly, I don’t mind my crate but who can complain about an afternoon nap on the couch!
My foster brothers like to alert everyone in a 10 mile radius the delivery driver has arrived and while I’m always happy to help in their efforts, I never actually start the shenanigans. While my foster dad is never amused (he mumbles about work meetings) our foster mom always thanks us for saving the day.
So, if you are looking for a laid back guy who loves to snuggle and will happily shake your hand with either paw... I’m your guy!PS- my foster mom says I should tell you I love my chew bones, and squeaky ball. My fetch skills are also on par. I hope to meet you soon!
Charlie Chaplin - 1.3 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black male 84 lbs -
Charlie Chaplin is a lanky, goofy, playful dog. House and crate trained, and obeys commands. He’s tall and thin, and prances like a horse! He goes nuts for a water hose, and loves to chase squirrels. He’s a bit of a gentle giant, as he plays with my smaller lab, but not rough. He’s very affectionate and loves to give kisses. Charlie is ready for his forever home and will be a great addition to any family.
Arrigo - 1.6 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 65 lbs
Hi I’m Arrigo. I’m looking for a forever home with a yard to play in, and plenty of people to love on me. I just love attention and if I don’t think your giving me enough, I’ll slowly climb onto your lap. I don’t know why people don’t think I’m a lap dog. Anyway, I’m just fine on the floor at your feet or on the couch beside you as long as you talk to me and pet me occasionally. And I only get on the furniture when you invite me, I do have manners.
I love people, but I do remember my manners most of the time and don’t jump on them. I love toys but will warn you that stuffed toys are for destruction, which usually occurs within 30 minutes. Tuff balls are great, I love to chew on them and toss them in the air to chase, just don’t expect me to bring it back to you.
I love wrestling with my foster bro, I just don’t get why Dad always wants us to do it outside. Ohh and if your outside has squirrels and rabbits, count me in. One of these days I’ll catch one of those rascals.
I sleep in a crate, but my foster bro has extra dog beds that he shares with me during the day. I can stay in my crate for 8 hours but prefer to just sleep there. I just love it when Mom forgets to put the gate on the stairs and I get to go wake Dad up with my cold nose hehe. He knows better than not to come down with her. Hey, look at the wonderful bed I made myself.
I eat dry food, a wonderful mix of IAMS and Royal Canin. I love my dog biscuits and peanut butter biscuits. My treats are sweet potato wraps and pupperoni.
Mattise - 5.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male 92 lbs
My name is Matisse and I am the sweetest hunk of chocolate lab you can ever meet! I was dumped in the country and taken care of by a kind rancher for a couple of weeks until DFW Lab Rescue stepped in to find me a new home. If you are interested…keep reading and I’ll tell you about myself. I am a happy, strong healthy lab with short nails and clean teeth! I have good manners, am food motivated (whatever that means, my foster mom told me to write that) and take treats gently with a soft mouth.
I like to play fetch, but only for a little bit because I get hot outside on these Texas summer days. I know how to go outside, do my business and get back into the cool AC. I enjoy my 2x day walks and am good on a leash. I am curious about rabbits, love people, haven’t met a cat yet and as for dogs, sometimes I say hi but mostly just keep on walking.
I ride well in the car as I want nothing more than to be where you are so take me everywhere (as long as your AC works!). I even took a nap last weekend while we were going through the car wash.
If you like personal space, I’m not for you as being by your side makes my heart happy. It isn’t that I can’t learn boundaries, but I just like to be around you. My foster mom already has a nickname for me, “Velcro”. I am house and crate trained but I won’t lie, I don’t love the crate. I have mastered the nudge and when I think I need a little more attention I get right up under your arm/elbow to let you know. I love to give and receive attention and prefer to be sitting by your side or laying at your feet.
If you want to meet me, the sweetest chocolate lab ever, request to put me on your list!
Monet - 5.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female 59 lbs
Nibbles - 3.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 65 lbs
Hi - I’m Nibbles! My foster mom says i’m a big handsome boy and will make the best addition to my furever family! I’m very sweet and well mannered, I do well in my crate but I prefer to be out with my people and I don’t cause any trouble. I am a people motivated lab who is looking for a family that will give me lots of love and affection and build my trust back up. I can get scared at times until I know I can trust you. But once I do, I am a-ok. I do great around other dogs and kids! I always aim to please and am a great listener. I have been sleeping in my dog bed next to my foster parents bed and I do great at night!
My foster family tells me any family would be lucky to have me and I just can’t stop wagging my tail at the thought of finding my perfect home! I hope to meet you soon!
Gilby - 4.5 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male Puppy
Looking for the perfect puppy? Want a companion that is sweet, outgoing, playful? Gilby is all of those and more. Crate trained, have never heard a peep out of him while crated. Coming along wonderfully with house training. After just 2 days, he knows he is to go outside to potty and has taken himself (knows the doggy door) outside when needed. He loves the resident dogs, especially the 1 year old and doesn’t have a problem keeping up with him.
Gilby also loves to chew on bones and play with other toys when he needs to occupy himself. He will need a family that can continue with his house training and the basics of puppyhood. He responds to “No” very well, and will stop whatever he is doing wrong.
Gilby will make a wonderful pup for a great family!
Kale - 8.5 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 95 lbs
Let me introduce you to the handsome and sweet Kale]. He’s a big chunk of black lab love at 95 punds and is 8.5 years old. Kale has been with 2 loving families who had to make the difficult decision to give him up due to life’s circumstances.
Kale gets along with all our animals (dogs and cats) and loves his people. He gets excited to go for walks but can’t go too far so you won’t be out long (good in this Texas heat!). He loves to swim if you have a pool! Kale will hang out on the sofa or the dog bed. He figured out how to use the dog door really quickly-such a smart boy!
Kale has the health issues you’d expect of an older lab. He’s had a few joints replaced and the arthritis has settled in which is managed with CBD and/or rimadyl. His heart is full of love for his family. Will you be his “third time is the charm?”
Magi - 1.5 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate male 75 lbs
Hey there folks. Man, am I excited you stopped by.
My name is Magi and I'm really looking forward to meeting you. Things with my foster family have been really busy. I am learning all kinds of new things. Apparently here you can't put your front paws on the counter or jump on your foster mom. Who knew? Well, now I do and I am trying super hard to put my new learnings into practice. The good thing is I have already learned that if I do what she wants I get a treat. Man do I love treats!!!!!
So anyway, a little bit about me. As you can see from my pics I am a little different than some other labs. I only have one eye. But hey don't you worry about me. I am navigating this world just fine. I really like playing outside. I love squeaky toys and playing ball. I have been enjoying going for walks and have even been doing some running with my foster mom. I really like running. It helps me get all my wiggles out. I am looking for a family that is willing to help me continue to learn my manners. My foster mom says I will probably need to go to obedience training and I said if there are treats there sign me up!! I am eager to learn and have heard her say I learn quickly.
In case you are wondering, I am such a good boy in the house. I don't touch things that don't belong to me and when I have to go potty I go to the back door. At night I started off sleeping in my crate but because I am so well behaved mom lets me now sleep on my dog bed on the floor next to her bed.
Now it's your turn. Tell me about you or let's arrange a meeting so I can hear it all!
Sk-out - 1.4 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male 59 lbs -
Meet Scout! This vivacious boy spent his first year outdoors and suffered a knee injury. He has since had successful TPLO surgery and has been cleared by the surgeon. He’s working everyday to rebuild strength in that leg and is making great progress. We expect a full recovery, though that will take a little time.
Fynn - 9.1 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow male 48 lbs -
Hi there, my name is Fynn and I am a handsome fella with tons of potential for the right family.
I am all puppy right now and would really benefit having an owner that is experienced and prepared to continue my training and teach me how to be a great boy.
I am very friendly and love to play with other dogs. I have bundles of energy, so a home with older children might be better, as I would hate for my excitement to accidently knock them over. I am getting better with my crate training and can sometimes be a little vocal, but I will settle down, when you ask me to ‘quiet’. I just want to be with you - all the time, but crating me is much better for my confidence and I can’t get into any mischief.
I have such a friendly nature, I just want a family of my own, that will help me learn, gain confidence and blossom into the boy I know I can be.
Tommey - 1.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 47.2 lbs -
Capt. Rogers - 1.9 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male 78 lbs -
Capt. Rogers is a young, vigorous boy, with the sleekest, most beautiful chocolate fur you’ve ever seen. It truly gleams. His striking golden eyes set off his fur perfectly. He loves car rides, is inquisitive, VERY smart, crate and housetrained, does not show destructive behavior, does not get on furniture, and sleeps through the night loose in the bedroom. An adopter will need to work on his manners, but he learns quickly. VERY food motivated. He will need to be leash trained as his former owners did not walk him. He’s learning to be playful, and has discovered that butt scritches are wonderful. He’s all ready for an active family who will teach him how to be a joyful dog, and that there’s more to life than a laundry room.
Niko - 6.6 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male Puppy
Hi I'm Niko and my foster thinks I'm the most handsome guy ever!
I am 5 months old in people year's and I weigh around 35 lbs. My Foster Momma tells me how handsome I am 20 times a day!! She has even held me up to a mirror to show me, so it must be true!!! My previous life started out pretty "Ruff"! I was left alone and scared out in the country. Unfortunately my siblings didn't make it.
Sarabi - 6.6 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female 51lbs
Sarabi is going to make a fantastic family pet! She is a 6 month old beautiful yellow lab with the prettiest eyes and floppiest lab ears! We would consider her on the low-mid energy scale but still has her fair share of zoomies in the house or the yard, only mildly and sporadically interested in playing with our dog. She will tire herself out with her toys (any and all she loves) and has done great on walks, good on a leash and only a little distracted by the happenings around her. She is overall a very mellow and comfortable dog, fitting very easily into our home routine quickly and learning what she can and cannot do inside…she has the perfect amount of mischief that keeps you on your toes but isn’t a full-time job!
Sarabi is sweet, calm, fun, and GOOFY…not overly affectionate or needy but still very loving and is loving the adjustment to family life. She sleeps wonderfully in her crate and doesn’t mind being in there for a couple hour breaks during the day. You’ve got to meet her!
Timon - 6.6 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 53 lbs
Hello there! My name is Timon but my foster mom says my personality is more like Pumbaa, whatever that means! I am very much a happy go lucky young labby boy, and I sure love my people and my foster brother.
I’m definitely still in my “curious young pup” phase but I love to please so when my mom tells me no, I know what that means and my attention can be redirected to a dog toy…those are fun too! I’ve come a long way with my potty manners and have learned outside is the best place to go - just make sure to take me out to remind me, because I’m a busy fella!
I think I’d be a good fit for pretty much any family…I love everyone and just want a comfy, cool house to call my own. If handsome and loving are your style, please ask to meet me!
Pogo - 4.1 Month Old Male
Initial intake information:Yellow Male 27 lbs
Hi, I am Pogo! I am in a foster home with my brother, Picasso, a four-legged big sister, and two human brothers. I am a handsome fella with white fur and almost grey skin. I love to play with my brother and enjoy all of my toys! My favorites are squeaky toys and the benebone. I especially like it when the humans play fetch with me! I like being around kids and getting all the attention that they’ll give me. My foster mom will probably say that I like to be the boss and take my brother’s toys whenever I can steal them away. I am very cuddly and you can always tell when I get tired because my eyes get droopy.
I tend to be pretty quiet and I also go right to sleep in my crate when it’s bedtime. I need my sleep and I’m almost sleeping through the night. I’ve been doing very well on my potty training and know it’s time to go out when my foster mom brings the leash. Now that I’ve pretty much got the basics down, my foster family will be working on some tricks like sit and down. I’ll definitely be working hard to earn those treats because I LOVE food! I also was so happy to step on the tanning ledge in the big pool of water so I’m going to explore more in the coming days. I really just want someone to love me and I’ll be a great companion in return!
Petunia - 4.1 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female 24lbs - Est available early July
Hi Petunia here! I have been enjoying my time with my foster mom and dad. I am doing really well with my potty training and I have learned some new tricks. I know sit, down and turn around, I am working on shake and I am sure I can learn more with time, my foster mom says I am very smart. I am a pretty easy going girl and have been trying to play with my adult foster housemates, they are warming up to the idea! My foster mom says I am also very loving, and enjoy a good snuggle with lots of kisses. I also like to retrieve pretty much any toy, have discovered tug-o-war and I do like the water to cool off in this heat. Foster mom says I am going to make some family very happy.
Picasso - 4.1 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 25 lbs
Hi, this is Picasso here!! I am in a foster home with my littermate, Pogo, a four-legged sister, and two human brothers. I am more yellow compared to my brother and such a handsome guy if I do say so myself. My ears are so soft and I even smile sometimes! I love to play with toys and especially with squeaky toys. My humans taught me how to play fetch too! Sometimes my brother steals my toys and I bark at him in protest and sometimes it’s worth a wrestle session. My foster mom will probably tell you that I tend to be passive but I will definitely make a fuss by barking if I don’t like something.
When it comes to meals, I sometimes like to take my time but I’m usually pretty hungry in the morning! I like to cuddle and am very sweet. I even let my brother chew on my ears without a peep! At times, I’m a little shy about trying new things like baths and going onto the pool tanning ledge but I’m learning to like water. I’ve been doing so well with potty training and I am learning to go every time we take a break outside. When it’s time to sleep it might take a few minutes for me to wind down in my crate, but I’m getting better at sleeping through the night! Since I’ve pretty much mastered the basics, my foster family will be working on some tricks like sit and down. I’m excited to find an amazing family and become a incredible companion!
TX Ranger - 1.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male 55 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available Late June
Hello my name is TX Ranger. I am a tall, handsome, loving, sweetheart boy. I was surrendered by a good Samaritan who rescued me from someone who wanted me to hunt ducks (I didn't want to hunt ducks so they just wanted to get rid of me). My amazing good Samaritan family took great care of me! They wanted to ensure I found the perfect home for me since I was already dumped once...and that's how I got to DFW Lab Rescue. The good Samaritan says whoever adopts me will be hitting the dog lottery because I'm so great!
I arrived at my foster house and could not be happier. I immediately started playing with their lab mix dog. They have small dogs too and I'm good with them too. I have been around little and big kids. I have been trained very well; I sit, shake, kennel and come on command. My foster mom says I'm a smart dog and obedient. I am good on the leash. I like going in the car and sit in the front seat, I will even come give face kisses as you drive. I stay in my kennel when nobody is home and at night. I like to lay on the tanning ledge of the pool when I get hot from playing or fetching. I do not like to swim (back to why I didn't want to duck hunt). And I love hanging on the couch with my family - it's just fun to be with you!
Now enough about me, here is what I am looking for; I want to a house, I love people big and small, other dogs, want a backyard and someone to play fetch with me. I need and will love going on walks and any other adventures to help me get my energy out...because I'm still a young lab and need exercise/activity. AND two square meals a day, and that is all I will ask for. Put me on your want list, I promise not to disappoint.
