Labradors Needing Homes

The following Labrador Retrievers are currently available for adoption. If you are interested in adopting one of the wonderful Labradors listed below, please complete the online application by clicking here:

Online Adoption Application

Most of the labs listed here have been abandoned for some reason. They are in need of a family who has the time to care for them, train them and live with them as a member of the family. They do not do well as totally outdoor dogs or just a friend, playmate for your child or pet. They are living animals who need a sense of being wanted, needed, and being an integral member of your family.

4-16-16 - Spent time with sweet KitKat today. What a great dog. She is such a people lover and what a ball chaser! This dog deserves a great home with people who can love her for what she is....a super sweet girl. Oh by the way she loves water!

Although KitKat would love her forever home, she would be very happy to join a foster family! Please email volunteerforlabrescue@gmail.com if you are interested in fostering KitKat.

3-13-16 Kit Kat is dreaming of a family of her own! Due to some male dog selectivity Kit Kat is back with us in Leander, and she is missing the lazy home life! She LOVES adults, kids and attention! We think Kit Kat might do best with a dog savvy family where she can be slowly introduced to other dogs in the house. She is a sweet girl who wants to please and learns quickly!

12-27-15 Kit Kat is a very affectionate pet. She is playful, engaging and obedient. She understands commands, knows how to walk on a leash and is very well behaved. It is apparent she was raised in a house as she knows her way around one. She is fully housebroken, she won't climb on beds but will put her paw on the couch asking for permission to climb up and lay beside you. She does not pester for food at the dinner table but will rather stare at you with doe eyes quietly but relentlessly for a morsel. KitKat thrives with human interaction and deserves to be part of a loving family.

12-21-2015 KitKat is new us but so far we know she is a sweetheart. She is good with other dogs, and seems easy going. She is healthy and ready to be adopted!

Thank you Brad for fostering Bella.

4-25-16 Bella has completed her ear treatments and now has gone to the dog park twice. She has been very timid at the park but with some nudging she has improved.

4-15-16 Thanks to Jay and Cathy for taking care of Benji

Sweet little Benji is one of our new dogs. He's a little underweight; probably because he was not being fed like he should be. He is now, getting tons of food and enjoying it. He's a really sweet little guy, not too rambunctious. He knows "sit" and walks pretty well on a leash, once he gets over initial excitement of being on a walk. He loves to be petted and scratched. We'll share more once we learn more about him.

Thanks to Blake for fostering Bishop!

Bishop is heartworm positive, so it will be a few months before he can meet his forever family.

2-15-16 Bishop is new to us, but seems to be a gorgeous and typical young lab. More to come soon!

Update 4-16-16: Bishop is doing great through his heartworm treatment. He is very well behaved in the house, does not counter surf or get into anything he isn't supposed to, and is a polite eater. He is very calm inside, doesn't bark, and doesn't mind kids petting him or sometimes forgetting that he is not a farm animal. He's filling out a little and is very athletic. He rides well in the car but his leash manners need some work. He seems like a fast learner and really does just seem happiest when he is with his people. This sweet boy will be a loyal protector. Not sure yet on how well he gets along with other dogs but we will be finding out soon. He's a handsome, sweet, big ole male lab ready to hang out and whatever the day brings.

Bobby- DOB 2009
Color: Black
Gender: male
April 15 at 4:31 PM

4-2016 Thanks to Bill and Beth for fostering Bobby!

4/15 Bobby/Buddy update: BB had his first play day at doggy day care today. He did very well. We then gave him a long bath with a special vet anti-itch shampoo & really soaked the solution into his skin. He must be thinking - "Oh No - 2 baths in one week!" His itching from allergies & any runny eye has been minimal this week. He has also come out of his shell & seems less timid. We are working with the vet to get him weaned off Prednisone & on the new allergy medication that has a lot less side effects.

4-2016 Bobby, AKA Buddy, is back with us through no fault of his own. While he was adopted he put on a few extra pounds, but he's already back on an exercise program with daily walks and some pond swimming. He's a fetcher! Bobby was rescued in June of 2015. He had surgery on his eyes to correct a condition called "Entropion" a condition that caused him to constantly scratch his eyes. He was miserable. All of this has been resolved and the hair has grown back around his eyes a lighter shade giving him the look of having spectacles. He has also had some allergies which we can resolve with the proper diet and possible allergy medication.

He's a happy go lucky guy who likes people and other dogs. He'd love a second chance at a forever home.

Bam Bam- DOB 2013
Color: Chocolate
Gender: male
April 5 at 12:19 PM

Thanks to Chase for fostering Bam Bam!

Bam Bam is new to us and came in with his sister Pebbles. More to come soon!

3-1-2016 Update
Bam Bam is a wonderful young man. He has a beautiful brown coat, and is very fit and healthy. His previous parents really cared well for him, so he loves human attention.
Some of his favorite activities are playing fetch and following you around the house. He's a strong lad, and I don't think he's figured out how strong he is yet. Even thought he's big, he can be a bit of a baby. He also gets confused by stairs.
Bam Bam seems to be house trained, and rides well in the car. He's fairly energetic, but a short walk or a little fetch quickly calm him down.

3-6-16 Update
Bam Bam is getting more confident with stairs, he still crawls up them rather than walking, but he's now taking the initiative to come up and hang out with us upstairs, all on his own! Walking down is no problem as long as he is following someone. He's very inquisitive, and definitely a bumpersnoot - meaning he isn't at all shy to nudge you with his nose to solicit your attention. To Bam Bam, crossing your arms doesn't mean you are upset, it means you're hugging the air, which is an opportunity for him to wedge his big head through your arms to receive the hug instead. I didn't know dogs liked being hugged, but for Bam Bam, he needs them. Lots of them.

3-26-16
Unfortunately Bam Bam is heartworm positive. We are starting treatment right away but it will be a little while before you can meet him.

4-5-16
Bam Bam is still undergoing heartworm treatment. He is still happy as ever, even after beginning treatment. We've recently nicknamed him "Bam the Bamboozler" since he will steal your heart with his handsome looks and overwhelming affection that he gives. Here's to a successful treatment, and a long life ahead of him! We will update once he completes his treatment and is given the thumbs up by the vet.

Comet- DOB Late November 2015Adoption Pending
Color: Black
Gender: male
April 28 at 9:15 AM

Thanks to Frances for fostering Comet!

NOTE: ALL PUPPIES UNDER 6 MONTHS OF AGE ARE $300 TO ADOPT.

12-28-15 Comet is one of Joy's puppies and he should be available for adoption around mid-February.

02-22-16 We brought Comet home with us on 2-21-16. He rode quietly in a crate w/o a whisper or accidents. He is a bit timid, but once he is comfortable with you and his surroundings, what a sweet dog! He is not house trained. Comet is an energetic pup. He has intelligence behind his beautiful black eyes. He has learning to sit. Comet enjoys playing with his toys. He also loves to chase his brother Dasher around the house and yard. When he runs out of energy he falls asleep on his toys...too cute. I have great hopes for this little lab. We will continue to love, pamper, train wonderful Comet.

Comet was given the nickname, Magellan. He has a curious mind and loves to explorer! Magellan enjoys hikes on Lake Belton. He walked well on a leash. He endured walking the whole length of the lake. He ran and played with his brother Dasher/Bandit. The water was cold and choppy, so he did not go for a swim. Magellan plays in his kiddy pool. He plays with his big foster brother (120 lbs lab). Magellan and Bandit play with toys all time. He is crate trained. When it is time for bed, he goes to the crate and walks right in. Magellan has matured a lot. He is still a little timid. Magellan did have his 1st puppy class last Sunday. He surprised me with how intelligent & how quickly he learned. He obeyed & was very attentive. Magellan attended the adult dog class...my bad. We arrived early. The puppy class followed the adult class, so two doses of training. He needed a nap. Magellan was well behaved during social/play time. We have homework to do this week, as all puppies do. He is on the lighter side. I think it's because he is a gentle pup and allows his brother to eat 1st. I do dish out more for him. Magellan gets as much of food as he desires. Magellan is getting better on house training. He makes a whimper when he needs to go outside. Magellan is waiting for his forever home. A home where he can run, play, swim, hike, and get lots of hugs.

3-16-16 Comet; aka Magellan is coming along with his puppy classes. He is ahead of his class...Top Dog! He has learned to sit, down, stay. Magellan astonished me with his intelligence & ability to learn quickly. He will continue onto the adult classes. Magellan will make any home a loving, playful one. He loves his foster siblings (dogs & cats). He enjoys playing with toys and loves his kiddy pool. Magellan enjoys hikes, lakes, & Redbud Isle. He also enjoys meeting new friends. He is shy at 1st but with lots of love, hugs, kisses & patience, treats he warms up. Magellan loves to snuggle, belly rubs. His big foster brothers are teaching him a dogs life, pack order. He doesn't mind when his foster brothers reminds him who is beta. He submits to his older foster siblings. He is now able to eat with the big dogs (foster siblings). Magellan is being socialized. He has taken trips to Petco, Lady Bird & Belton lakes, puppy classes. Magellan recently spend a couple of days visiting at another house w/labs. His host said he did very well & behaved himself. I have great hopes & high expectations for Magellan. He will a make wonderful addition to any home.

04/05/16 Comet's 1st day at a Dog Park in Cedar Park. He loved making all kinds of friends (2 & 4 legged). He thought he was Romeo. His hormones were raging & wooed a couple of lady friends...lol. He ran, played with big & small dogs, he swam. Comet fetched tennis balls. He was the socialite of the park. He strutted around & was the perfect lab, having fun, energetic, lovable! No Fear Comet. The picture was taking after he swam; so I hope you don't mind the dirt on his face & chest...lol!

04-16-17 I can't say enough good things about Comet. He is growing up to be one awesome lab. He sits quietly next to me while I am studying or typing away on the computer. He would like to play with my two cats Cleo & Craven. But, they remind him hands off. He obeys their command. He is a lab w/manners sits & waits for his food; waits to be allowed out the door or gate. Comet is almost house trained. He might have an accident once a month. But that is only if he is fed late & I forget to let him out later, my bad. Comet is great with children. He is on the smaller size & would make a wonderful apartment lab. But don't let his smaller frame fool you. Comet can be just as much as a big lab. He loves life, people, dogs, cats. Comet's facial features is developing into a handsome lab. More updates while this Spring & Summer I take him to the beach, State & National parks. If you would like to take this cutie patootie on adventures he is available. See Comet's first visit to the dog park:

3-16-16 Dancer is about as sweet as they come! He is a little shy around new people and places, but warms up quickly (even more so if you have yummy treats!). He is nearly potty trained (90%), loves cats and dogs, and is learning to walk on a loose leash. Dancer is super adaptable and is just as happy playing tug-of-war with you as he is chewing on a bone by himself. Dancer would love a home to call his own - get your application in and scoop this cutie up!

12-28-15 Dancer is one of Joy's puppies We believe he is a Lab/Shepard mix (we know his mom was a Lab. He is cute, cute, cute. He is crate trained, sleeps through the night, we are still working on the potty training but he is doing well.

4-14-16 Midnight continues to show his good qualities as he becomes more accustomed to his foster home. He was not at all anxious during the recent thunder storm. He's very good when people visit. He's still a little excitable when we come home and needs to work on not jumping to greet us when we come in the door.He loves to carry around toys and play ball. He also had his first bath; did great! 4-11-2016 Midnight has been in his foster home for a week and a half now and is settling in nicely. Each day he gets more comfortable with the change in his life. He walks well on a leash and easily does a 4 mile daily walk. Loves to play with toys especially balls; is trustworthy in the house and loves to keep close to his foster family. He could easily go into a home with another dog but don't know anything about his tolerance for cats. Will post more as he settles in. Although Midnight would love his forever home, he would be very happy to join a foster family! Please email volunteerforlabrescue@gmail.com if you are interested in fostering Midnight.

2-15-16 Midnight is new to us, so once we know more about him we will update his profile!

Thanks to Alison and Jeff for fostering Poppy!

4/22/16 Poppy is doing well learning dog socialization skills. She has always loved people but now she know what it is like to play with other dogs. What an improvement. Poppy is ready to find the perfect home

2/1/16 Poppy is still looking for her forever home. She would love to meet you! She has adjusted well to our post-holiday work schedule and we have given her free reign of the house while we are away. She is a perfect lady while we are gone and is always happy to see us at the end of the work day.

1/2/16 Poppy is a swimmer! Even though it's January, Poppy jumped right into the lake to find out what all the geese were up to today.

12/27/15 Poppy is adjusting well to her foster home. She LOVES being in the backyard and playing fetch every minute she can. She is well-behaved inside and just wants to cuddle up for some love. She was a wonderful sport over the holidays and played endlessly with our young nephews who found her extremely entertaining.

11/2/15 Poppy is a funny, energetic girl who loves to show off for people. She has nice manners, is housebroken, and walks well on a leash. She is very gentle and a great size! We've working to get Poppy used to being around other dogs.

Thanks to Lauren and Ryan for fostering Cupid (recently dubbed Banjo)!

NOTE: ALL PUPPIES UNDER 6 MONTHS OF AGE ARE $300 TO ADOPT.

3-10-16 Banjo is a little shy upon first meetings, but has been gaining confidence and did great letting people pet him on our Lowe's outting! He does NOT like being alone, and we would really like to see him not be the only dog in the household. He near-about worships his older foster brother and wants to do everything he does! He is very curious and loves to be near his people. He is still working on potty-training. Banjo knows "sit" and we are working on "down" and "stay". Bad foster parents that we are, we have been letting Banjo snuggle with us on the couch and Ryan likes to let Banjo be the one to wake me up - which means letting him on the bed! Banjo is only crated at night, and for the most part, sleeps through the night (we've had a couple 2am potty breaks). He hasn't had any accidents in the crate though.

12-28-15 Cupid is one of Joy's puppies and he should be available for adoption around mid-February.

2/8/16 Cupid (recently dubbed Banjo) and Prancer (who we're calling Walker) are the most puppy-like puppies ever! Banjo is a little more outgoing and loves to sit in your lap and chew on whatever toy he can - that is, if his brother lets him! Walker is a little shy around new people, but once he warms up he loves belly rubs (don't let his shy-ness fool you though, he is a little instigator ;])! These boys are wriggly, happy, very loving puppies. We are working on potty-training and they're picking up on it quickly!

3/29/16 Give this dog a selfie stick! She's so pretty she should be on the internet! Long and lean this girl will melt your heart after she beats you in a friendly game of tug-o-war, her favorite and she's a champion already. At only 10 months old, she has it all, the cute playfulness of a puppy with the ability to calm down quickly like an older dog. She's not short on personality or sweetness, is a quick learner and has a gorgeous coat of soft chocolate fur. She loves attention and activity and will turn circles when she sees you pick up her leash as she thinks it's time for another fun adventure. She'll do best in an active family and would make an excellent walking or running buddy. She's learning cats are "okay" but will chase if they run and has no problem hanging out with other dogs. She is housebroken and settles into her crate nicely after her long nightly walks. She hasn't shown any destructive behavior but has had plenty of dog-friendly chew toys and bones to distract her. Her tug-o-war knotted rope is her favorite of course. She's healthy, happy and ready to meet her new family!

3/26/16 At only 10 mos old, Trixie has had at least 2 owners and 1 stay at a shelter. Lucky girl got herself to Lab Rescue as quick as she could! This is one smart cookie who is dog & people social. She'll do great with an owner who can provide her structure, keep her active and understand she is still a puppy.

Trixie has a great time playing with HOTLR alum Maverick (who is blind)

Thanks to David for fostering Aggie!

Sweet Aggie is missing a rear foot, but she doesn't let that slow her down. We do know she is probably not good around cats.

1-5-16 I really love Aggie and would like to keep her yet my job is to foster. She can be yours though. She talks, she smiles and loves to play with the other foster dogs in the house. She would make a great companion playmate for another playful dog.

She is missing one foot but still very fast and agile. We had a prosthetic made and I am getting better at putting it on over the limb. However, she is having a difficult time learning to use it. I am not convinced she even needs it. She seems more comfortable and agile without it. Sweet dog with no issues (unless you don't want a dog sleeping in your bed). Knows how to use a dog door. Good with kids.

Thanks to David for fostering Pogo!

2-12-16 Pogo was adopted a few months ago but it did not work out. He is sensitive to loud noises and hearing the sound of fire trucks stressed him to the point of being unhealthy. He has now been back in a foster home for about 6 weeks and is doing well. He is relaxed and healthy. He is now looking for a home again. I think it would be best if he were the only dog in a calm and quiet home. He really loves fetching tennis balls in my neighbors pool. If you have a pool (or a pond) that is a huge bonus for Pogo.

9-8-15 Pogo has been in a foster home for a couple months now. He is house trained and knows how to use a dog door. He is perfectly behaved around the house, around people and other dogs. He does not jump on people, does not bark or counter surf. He is good when taking a treat. He is also perfect on off leash trail walks. He loves the water and likes to play but not much into retrieving. He has no health problems and is ready for a permanent home. However, he wants to eat cats. So, no cats around Pogo.

6-7-15 Pogo is full of energy and is very enthusiastic. He is a sweet boy that seems to do well off-leash and seems to have very nice recall. He does enjoy swimming, but hasn't shown much interest in retrieving. He loves to get his back scratched and is always appreciative of some human loving! He would do well with a more active family that enjoys spending time outdoors!

Thanks to Audrey for fostering Jet!

Jet is unfortunately heartworm positive and will not be able to meet adoptive families for a few months!

3-15-16 Jet is about halfway through his heartworm treatment and doing very well. He is not a fan of no play time or exercise, but crates nicely and is becoming an expert at relaxing with his foster siblings. Jet does very well with cats and behaves likes an angel in the house. He does like to get a close look at any food on the counters, but is getting much better and knows the word "off". He is waiting for his forever home that will love him as much as he deserves to be loved. He is one great dog!

2-2-16 Jet is truly coming out of his shell! He is not a big fan of having his picture taken, but is truly a fun and full of personality pup. He does great in the house, is quiet, loves to give hugs, and is good with cats!

01-31-16 Jet has earned free range of the house privileges. He is no longer crated during the day while his foster is at work and has proven extremely trustworthy. He is doing better on a leash and is quick to learn manners. He gives the best hugs and kisses on command and has a very beautiful sit. He is a love bug and just enjoys being around his people.

1-27-16 Jet is a very sweet boy. He seems to be completely housebroken, gets along with dogs, and does fine with cats. He crates pretty well, although gets a little upset when you leave him. He settles nicely inside and has yet to make a chew toy of anything he shouldn't. He knows how to use a dog door and seems to be quick learner all the way around. He knows sit and we are working on only giving hugs when it is asked of him. Overall, a very sweet boy.

Thanks to Karen for fostering Libby.

Libby is a sweet dark chocolate girl with a beautiful healthy and shiny coat. She is settling into her new foster home with two teenagers, two cats and an older blonde Lab. She chases the cats when they run but is just super curious and wants to play. Libby is a bit of an escape artist when she is crated but she loves hanging out in her crate when it is open. She loves to have dog friends come over to play and run in the back yard. She likes to play fetch with soft squeaky toys and walks okay on a leash. She is in need of a bit of training but is very responsive to verbal correction already and is eager to please.

As dogs are adopted and room becomes available we take more in. At this time we are completely filled up and do not have enough foster homes to rescue all of the Labs in this area, and north and south of Austin. There are several at Town Lake Animal Center in Austin, and other Shelters around the area, we will consider as space becomes available. Please put the Labs in Shelters, on your list for consideration. If you find a Lab you would consider adopting in one of the shelters, we would be happy to meet you. Our Rescue group will be available to answer any questions you may have or to help you work through any problems you may experience with your adopted Lab, whether you adopt from us, or one of the shelters. Also consider the dogs below.

There are additional dogs listed at the below link which are also available for adoption. These dogs are privately owned dogs and are NOT affiliated with HOTLR. Do NOT contact HOTLR to get more info on these dogs, as this is a service we provide to people trying to place labs. Please contact the individual dog's contact information to arrange to meet the dog. HOTLR does not vouch for any of these dogs, as they have not been evaluated by any HOTLR Volunteers.
