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.

Paisley is currently staying at the dog ranch and would love a foster home of her own!

10/17/17 Paisley is brand new to us. She was surrendered by her owner because Paisley kept eating the neighbor's chickens. After several attempts to stop her from doing this, the owners contacted us. Paisley is super sweet but needs a home without any chickens!

Ajax is staying at the dog ranch and would love a foster of his own! 10/17/17 Ajax is brand new to us. He came from a very small town near Beaumont where he spent most of his life tied to a tree. He is heartworm positive, has hair loss, has a nub for a tail and is too skinny. He doesn't even know this though! His heart is huge. He loves people. He is gentle and kind and doesn't jump and wags his little nub SO fast when he sees someone approaching him. When he is healthy he is going to be stunning!

Bellany is at the dog ranch and would love a foster home of her own.

10.10.17 Bellany is such a playful, fun loving girl. She would love a house with another playful dog. She also could easily keep up with a walker or runner, too. She gets excited when she sees other dogs while on leash and will start barking trying to convince you to let her meet them. She is working on learning some self control so she doesn't do this.

9/30/17 Bellany is such a sweet girl! She likes to play fetch. Copy this link and watch her go!! She is a stunning chocolate girl who would love a playful canine sibling!

9/21/17 Bellany has settled in so well. She loves playing with the foster home's husky. They love to run and play all day. She is doing so well not jumping on people and will be amazing with some additional training. She is good with kids, though is bouncy and active and may be too much for kids not used to dogs. Cat free home would be best. Bellany is a beautiful chocolate girl who is figuring out what it's like to be in a loving home. She's a young girl who is smart and is figuring things out!

Yesterday at 10:12 PM

Thank you to Kate and Reece for fostering April!

10/18/2017 April is doing great working on her manners. She has learned not to get on furniture without an invitation, and we are working on her jumping or pawing for attention. We are really working with her on "4 on the floor" for positive attention and treat time. She is very smart, and is picking it up quickly. With some one on one training and focus, she could learn some fun tricks!

10/5/17 April is settling in to her foster home. This sassy pup thinks the whole world is her playground... Which makes for some entertaining hijinks. We are working with April on staying "off" of people and furniture without invitation. She is very smart and a quick learner. She loves attention and is a true velcro lab. Her favorite place is on you! She plays very nicely with her foster brother, and frequently wins tug of war (their favorite!) even though he is twice her size.

8/15/17 April is such a sweet little girl! She enjoys wrestling with other dogs and cuddling with the humans. She is good in her crate and has a great joy for life!

7/25/17 April is super cute! She loves people and playing with dogs. She is a bit nervous in new situations but recovers nicely. She loves treats and training. She hasn't had an accident in the crate or house in a while, though she still jumps up on you when she is excited. Overall, if you are looking for a smaller lab, she is amazing! 7/10/17 April is brand new to us! She was owner surrendered to a shelter in Laredo and brought up to us. She is a smaller girl weighing only 35 pounds full grown. Her previous owner docked her tail, too. She is very sweet, human oriented, playful and energetic. She is crate and house trained, likes other dogs and is a lot of fun.

Thanks to Debra Hamel, Keren Alon, Sara Corwin, Bonnie Ballard, Michelle Miller, Loretta Mento, Nance Woodward, Donna Platt, Floreladiana Matusa, Phoenix Podell, Sonya Ray, Claudia Cipoola, Raji Tripathi, and Paul and LuAnn Peralta for sponsoring April! We could not save as many great Labs like April without our incredible sponsors!

Koko- DOB 2013
Color: Chocolate
Gender: male
October 17 at 9:21 AM

8/22/17 Koko is in the house! We are having so much fun with our new foster, Koko. Koko is just a big love bug. He loves a good belly rub and makes a face which brings us to tears laughing. When you rub his belly, he stretches back his head, his lips fall back and all those big white teeth make him look like a smiley cheshire cat. I've tried to capture a picture of it, but it is one of those things that pictures don't do justice.

He enjoys playing fetch. He returns the ball, and we are working on the "drop it" part. He knows how to sit and we are working on speeding up his response. He knows the command "crate" with a point of the finger at the crate and doesn't cry or whine about it.

So far we have not had any of the bad lab behaviors like counter surfing or jumping, which is great. As far as vocalizing, he has a seriously adorable, deep, slow "woof" which he breaks out whenever the doorbell rings or he hears a dog or people from the backyard. He is a perfect burglar alarm in this way. I haven't heard his howl, probably because in our family of four, he is not lacking for attention so hasn't gotten lonely.

Koko has a few scars on his nose and tail from his mystery life before he was brought to HOTL and he has big elbow calluses probably from laying on concrete a lot in his prior life.

7/27/17 I'm totally impressed at how good this dog is on leash. He was clearly taught how to heel, and pretty naturally falls in next to you. For a big boy like him that's a huge plus!

7/25/17 Koko spent his first night with his new foster Mike! He's gentle and good natured, gets along well with all the dogs in our house and is a good listener. He's got good energy, but isn't overly excitable, and has that adorable lab face that you can't help falling in love with.

Thanks to Melinda and Stephanie for fostering Koko.

7/20/17 Koko is awesome. He gets along with other dogs, is curious about our cats, but not mean, is great in his crate and loves to explore with us. He also howls when he is lonely, not for long, but it is very cute!

Koko is new, but we can already tell this is a great dog. He came into the Austin shelter as a stray and was one very sick dog but he has recovered nicely and is now feeling very good. He's going to make a family very happy with his love and sweet antics.

10-16-17 Harvey ended up with ringworm from his exposure before getting to us. He has been treated and in recovery now, but is almost ready to start meeting families!! He is good in a crate, house trained, doesn't care about the cats and is good with dogs. He has been working very hard to not jump on people and to not pull on leash. He is very food motivated and is learning every day!

9-21-17 Harvey came to us the day before the hurricane hit. He's your typical rambunctious young Lab. He's a sweet boy, great with dogs and humans, curious about cats (got smacked this morning) but won't hurt them. He needs to work on jumping up but only when excited. He is fine in a crate and hasn't had an accident in the house. He is healthy and ready for some work on manners and love!

Laredo is at the dog ranch and would love a foster home of his own!

10/16/17 Laredo has calmed down and become an amazing pup to love on! He is always up for a couch cuddle and will sit and watch you cook all day! He is still working on leash manners around other dogs, but is so good on leash when they aren't around. If you are looking for a pup to play fetch with and hang out with your kids/family, he is a great option. He needs to be the only pet, but if you are only wanting one he is a great one to have!

9/28/17 Laredo loves to play, whether that is fetch or chase he is always game to play! He is great with kids and enjoys being loved on. He needs to be the only pet, but he has a big enough heart to fill your whole home!

8/25/17 Looking for a running buddy? This boy is for you! He is such a huge goof ball you will be entertained for hours! He is sweet and very energetic but calms down nicely and enjoys cuddles, too.

8/18/17 Laredo loves to play with toys, chase and tug are his favorites. He still needs to gain some weight, but has no problem eating his food! Right now Laredo needs to be an only dog as he seems to not like all dogs. We have found this can change a couple of months after getting neutered (he was neutered yesterday). He is a high energy, handsome boy looking for someone to explore town with! 8/10/17 Laredo is an energetic, loving young boy waiting for his forever home!!

9/30/17 May is a smaller pup, around 35 pounds. She is very good in the crate and is working on house training. She is a bit timid in new situations but is getting much better about it. She would love a patient family, maybe with another dog, to love her forever.

9/3/17 Sweet "lil" May. She is a small lab about 11 months old. Probably no bigger than 30-35 lbs when fully grown. Gets along well with other dogs but will entertain herself with dog toys when there is no companion dog. Walks great on leash. Stays with pack on off leash trail. Knows how to use dog door. Super sweet and loves attention. Ok with cats.

10/13/17 Roo is a such a good and easy puppy...yes, easy. She's housebroken and even well on her way to learning to shake bells hung on the door to let us know she wants to go out. She sleeps in her crate from 10 pm to 6 am without incident. Throughout the day, she sleeps, loves chewing on plush toys, and playing with our resident dog. Roo would do great with another dog in the house. She likes to go on walks as well and is good on her leash. Our kids can walk her no problem. She likes her trips to the bus stop or trips in the car. We have incorporated her into our day to day and she happily goes with the flow.

9/28/17 Rue is a three month old love bug! This petite girly is a HUGE snuggle bug who loves to be near people at all times, and loves to sit in your lap. She is mostly potty trained with only a few accidents (and no poo accidents at all!). This little one has done well with our big dogs, she is submissive and responsive to cues if they aren't ready to play. Mostly she just wants to be with her people. Although she's on the smaller side...the girl can eat! The lab appetite is strong with this one. Also worth noting, Rue is crate trained and sleeps through the night. Rue is a sweetheart with a lot of love to give and will make one lucky family very happy!

Gender: female
October 9 at 6:36 AM

10/09/17 Kia started her her heartworm treatment on Friday and is doing well, although the activity restriction is pretty tough for an active and curious girl like her. She loves to race her foster brother in the back yard and always comes out the winner. She's very good at fetch, too! Although she is good with young kids, due to her activity level, speed and strength, we feel that Kia would do best in a home with adults or older kids.

09/07/17 Kia has been having a great time wrestling with her foster brother Otis and just hanging out with the other pups when the people are at work. She's a great bed buddy, is perfecting her "sit" and has discovered that crunchy veggies and frozen blueberries make the most awesome snacks!

8/14/17 Kia is the whole package - she's sweet, sassy, curious and cuddly all by equal measure. She can be a little shy at first blush, but she loves people and other dogs, and she's learning about the cat. Kia is house trained and rides well in the car, as well as walks nicely on a leash!

8/10/17 Kia is a super sweet dog who loves people and dogs alike! She seems fine with cats at this point, too! She is crate trained and hasn't had an accident in the house! She is slightly timid but desperately wants you to love her! Kia is heartworm positive and is available through our foster to adopt program.

We appreciate the following people for contributing to Kia's medical care: A Sauer, D Welborn.

Bette- DOB 2012
Color: Yellow
Gender: female
October 6 at 2:34 PM

10/6/17 Bette is a super sweet older dog that loves to be with her people. She also does well being outside by herself, snoozing in the shade. She is probably around 6 years old and would do well with a family that would not be leaving her each day for extended periods of time. She's great with children and other dogs and is altogether a sweetheart. 9/3/17 Bette is very comfortable in her foster home; sure enough now that she will go outside the fenced yard and just hang with her people while they garden. She has met lots of kids as well as other dogs and is very friendly to both. She is a big dog but very gentle and would do well in a home that is looking for a chill companion. 8/1/17 Bette has been with us for a little over a week now and is very comfortable in her foster home. She spent the first week with former foster and now family dog Wallace and they got along fine. She also met some children and behaved perfectly. Luckily she's had some training in the past and walks well on a leash and waits at the door to enter and leave. She is a big dog; I don't think she'll ever be anyone's running buddy but is so sweet and gentle that all who meet her love her at once. 7/20/17 Bette is an awesome dog. She is calm, easy going, submissive to other dogs and curious but gentle with the cats. She is very tall but so gentle and aware of her body. Her chin can almost rest on our kitchen counters! She is a go with the flow, hang out kind of dog! The funny thing about Bette is that the shelter thought she was about 8 years old, we thought she was about 6, and our vet thinks she is 5 - getting younger every day!!!

7/13/17 Bette is brand new to us. She is nice, calm and ready to love you forever! The shelter thinks she is 8, but we think she's younger, maybe 6.

Thank you Alison for fostering sweet Eliza!

9/21/17 Eliza has been with me (and my 9 yr old lab) for almost 3 weeks now and she is a joy. She is perfect in the car, easy to bathe, well-mannered leash walker, good at an off-leash park with new dogs etc etc. She hasn?t quite gotten the hang of fetch just yet, but we are trying to work on that. Eliza is a total love bug and everyone she meets is her new best friend. 8/18/17

Eliza is finally healthy enough to start meeting families! She really wants a family of her own. She is so easy going, loves people and wants to be loved on all the time. She will also wrestle with the younger pups or chill at your feet if that is what you are doing. She is a very sweet girl who proves just because you have a rough start doesn't mean you are damaged!!

7/27/27 Eliza has been with us for a bit and is now healthy enough to meet potential families! This girl is so willing to please and loves receiving love! She is great with dogs, wants to hang out with you wherever you go and is ready to learn some new tricks! She is a bit intense around cats, so a cat free home would be best. She is good with kids, house trained and crate trained!

7/2/17 Eliza came to us with very little hair due to fleas, but now she has this amazing dark chocolate color. She's never met a stranger,loves going wherever you, is house trained good in a crate, and knows sit.

6/15/17 Eliza recently came to HOTLR from the San Marcos shelter where she was found as a stray. She is a very happy, loving girl with some hair loss and in need of a spa day (or two!). She does enjoy other dogs and does well in a crate. She is calm in the house, house trained and does well in the crate. Eliza is not a fan of cats and will need a CAT FREE home!

Timber
Timber- DOB 2015
Color: Black
Gender: male
October 1 at 5:12 PM

10/1/17 Adoption Coordinator Note: Timber is a very shy dog and is available for private meet and greets at his foster's home.

6/7/17 Timber has been in a home with several other labs for about 2 months now. When he first arrived at his foster home he refused to leave the transporters car and each time we would try to get him out he would growl, snip then go to the other side of the car. For the first few weeks any little noise (even the sound of the toaster popping up bread) would scare him and he would run to his safe spot in a bedroom. He would do the same thing when visitors would arrive. As soon as anyone arrived at the house he would run and hide. So somebody or some unfortunate circumstance made Timber very scared of the world and humans around him.

Well, he has come a very long way in two months. He just needed to be with a pack of other dogs who could teach him some things and in a home where he felt safe and loved. He also needed to learn how to walk as a pack. We started with a harness and a leash on a 3 mile trail and now he understands how to walk off leash and come when called. This has given him much more confidence and pack awareness.

He isn't completely polished yet but he is getting there. He is housed trained and knows how to use a dog door. He is good around the house in that he doesn't tear things up and is generally calm and quiet. He doesn't know how to play ball yet but he does play well with other dogs. He needs to go to a home where will have a companion dog and get frequent walks.

Thank you to Leigh for fostering Faline!

10/1/17 Adoption Coordinator note: Faline is available for a private meet and greet at her foster's home (she is too shy to show well at a formal meet and greet).

9/4/17 We have had Faline for almost 2 months now. This shy girl is slowly but surely coming out of her shell. Most of the day, Faline just relaxes napping and watching us and our dog. She also thinks its super fun to unload all the toys from the toy bin and maybe chew on a bone. What helps Faline come out of her shell the most is having an active and confident dog buddy who interacts with her, playing with other dogs is her favorite. While Faline is still a shy girl, she has made great steps and is a super sweet and spunky dog. I think with any new home she will take time to open up but she is worth the wait! While she doesn't show any signs of separation anxiety, she certainly comes out of her shell more quickly if someone is home most of the day. She shows no signs of aggression but does have a big bark to help keep unwanted guests away. Faline did great during the recent storms, as they did not seem to phase her indoors or out. This young pup will take some work in the beginning but will be a wonderful long term companion.

7/30/17 Faline is a very sweet young pup. She is very shy but has started to play a little more after being with us for about two weeks. Humans are pretty scary to Faline but she loves our dog and would do best with another confident dog in the house to help her gain confidence. She is crate and house trained and easily sleeps through the night. She is nervous on her leash at first but will settle down after you walk for a little while. She is happiest when chasing our dog around the backyard while he plays fetch. Overall, Faline is a super sweet girl who just needs a family who is willing to put in the time and patience to gain her trust. She is a wonderful dog and will be worth the effort!

7/2/17 Faline is coming out of her shell nicely. She's still timid but willing to trust and try. Her determination to be brave wins you over! She needs a patient family with an outgoing dog looking for a side kick!

6/21/17 Faline is new to the rescue! This shy sweet girl is just a pup who really wants to be loved, but needs someone to help her come out of her shell. She does best when another friendly, confident dog can show her the way! She is a gorgeous girl who needs a little TLC to show her that the world isn't a scary place!

Not only is he as cute as can be, he also is extremely active and carries anything and everything in his mouth. He needs a home with another playful dog. This is a must for him. He also needs an experienced owner as he is still a puppy, but weighs 70 pounds.

We appreciate the following people who have contributed to Theo's medical care: J Ware, M Bryarly, A Sauer, E Biehle, S Giancola, C Moore, T Ritko, B Simonton, C Daniels, P and L Peralta, S Van Poperin, C Leahy, C Rethamn, P Kipping, T Lieberknecht, G Sanderson, C Moore, T Potts, L McCloskey, H Bassett, M Patel, J Chapa, S Bain, R Palmer, D Mann, S Owens, K Brinegar, L Adams, H Hickey, L Collins, J Howell, S Oswalt.

Thanks to Mike for fostering Allie.

9/18 Allie is a wonderful easy going companion. She was very timid when she first started staying with me, but she's really blossomed here. She's a joy to walk and is very calm all around. She loves hanging out with other dogs but doesn't get pulled into lots of play very easily. She's skittish around new people but is very lovable once she has a chance to get to know you. Allie is a sweet girl who is ready for her forever home.

She is heartworm positive. HOTLR pays for ALL heartworm treatment even once our labs go home. To learn more about heartworm treatment, or adopting a dog with heartworms, email us. HOTLR dogs who are heartworm positive are eligible for foster to adopt situations.

We appreciate the following people for contributing to Allie's medical care: T McGowen.

Diego is currently staying at the dog ranch and would love a foster of his own!

9/30/17 Holy cow, Diego may be the sweetest pup EVER!! He is great with dogs and ignores the cats of the house. He is good in the crate and hasn't had an accident in the house. He also walks pretty well on a leash and really would love a home of his own.

9/24/17 Diego is brand new to us. So far we know he loves people and kids, loves to play with other dogs and is good in a crate. He is a very sweet boy who has been giving kisses any chance he's gotten and has been easy going so far!

Gibbs is staying at the dog ranch and would love a foster home of his own!

9/30/17 Gibbs is still doing well. He likes to go on walks, play with other dogs and sit in your lap for cuddles! He is good in the crate and house trained. He is a big boy who is ready for a great family of his own.

8/18/17 What an amazing dog! Handsome, friendly with other dogs, loving and medium energy. This poor boy has pretty bad kennel cough (dog version of a cold) but he is such a trouper taking his meds! He has seen the cats and not chased them, but will be better tested once he is feeling up to his normal energy level!

8/15/17 Gibbs is brand new to us and we will update his profile soon!

10/04/2017 He has been in his foster home for about 9 days and is adjusting well. This boy is all puppy! He loves to be the center of attention! He loves tummy rubs and well any kinda of attention he can get! 😊 He is doing great with house breaking and goes to the door when he needs to go! He knows sit and is working on learning more basic commands. He is still learning that the crate is a good place, but doing much better than a week ago. As long as he can see me (had to move them to our room) he does just fine. He does sleep through the night with no accidents. He is doing great with the other dogs and cats in our home. 9/28/17 Donnie is a three month old pup. He and his sister are cutie pies!

10/04/2017 She and her brother have been in their foster home for 9 days now. Unlike her brother, Marie is more on the shy side. She was very timid for the first several days but is slowly coming out of her shell as she becomes more comfortable. She loves to get tummy rubs and playing with her brother. She's even beginning to interact with her foster siblings. She is doing great with house training and goes to the door when she needs to go out. Like her brother, she's still learning the crate is a good place and does fine as long as she can see me. She also sleeps through the night with no accidents. She knows sit and is working on learning a few other basic commands. She is a sweetheart who often gets pushed to the side (by other dogs, not us lol) due to her shyness. We are working hard on giving her the confidence that she so needs, the confidence to say "No, I'm getting my lovin, wait your turn!" Without her brother this will probably happen much faster, as he can be a little greedy when lovin is being given!Lol 9/28/17 Marie is a three month old pup. She's Donnie's sister and as cute as can be.

10-04-17 Midnight has been with us 5 days now and she settled in very nicely. She is a little sweetheart, a very quick learner, learning new rules after only a day or two. She has such joy and enthusiasm. She loves to play ball & and following her foster siblings around but never far from people. 9-21-17 Midnight is a cutie! She has some noncontagious hair loss that is healing. She needs a bath twice a week for now, but that will end when the hair grows back. She loves people, giving them hugs if they let her, and is good with dogs and cats. She is a tiny bit timid and submissive around other dogs. She enjoys hanging out with dogs and people. She is good in the crate and hasn't had an accident in the house.

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.
