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.

Huckleberry- DOB 2018

Gender: male
Yesterday at 7:50 AM

Thank you Laura Lee for fostering handsome Huck while he waits for his forever family!

11/19/18 Huck has gone to 3 training classes and has proven himself to be not only very smart, but also a super quick learner. Tara, his trainer, has stated that if she she was needing to find a dog to join her pack, she'd scoop him up. This boy loves to work, and the sky's the limit as far as harnessing his potential. In this video Tara demos with Huck to show loose lead walking with (amazing!) focus and the "move on" command. And btw, this was the first time he'd done this stuff......ahhh-mazing!

11/1/18 who knew?

10/30/18 Several times a day I have a ringside seat to the Huck/Rufus wrasslin' match. Huck is punching a bit above his weight class, but he seems to hold his own.

10/26/18 Huck is settling in nicely with me and his 2 foster doggie brothers. I took him to a training class the first day I had him, and he proved to be quite the smarty pants. This boy loves to work and is very treat motivated so the skyĚ is the limit as far as what he can learn. In addition to commands and tricks, IĚve been teaching Huck how to contain his exuberant puppy energy, which is sometimes challenging for the most exuberant of puppies! Huck loves people and dogs, and, although curious, was quite polite with the resident cat at the vetĚs office. Huck has just started showing me all his great potential - canĚt wait to see the rest unfold! 10/18/18 Huck is becoming such an awesome teenager! He plays well with others, is super food motivated and knows sit and down. He is very good in his crate and walks pretty well on his leash! If you are ready for a puppy that will sleep through the night, Huck is for you!

10/1/18 Huck is a fun puppy! He loves romping around and wrestling. He is already sleeping all the way through the night in his crate, too! He has super long legs that he is hoping to grow into soon. Huck needs another dog either living with him or visiting often as he is very mouthy to humans when he can't get his wrestling fix in with another dog. He is also working on sharing his toys with other dogs, so an understanding, playful, even tempered dog that is willing to teach Huck how to be a good brother would be ideal. He loves humans, is working on manners, knows sit and is getting better on the leash.

9/10/18 Huck is new to the rescue and is approximately 4 months old. He is a sweet young energetic pup that loves to play! THE ADOPTION FEE FOR PUPPIES 6 MONTHS AND YOUNGER IS $350.

Avalon- DOB 2013 Adoption Pending
Color: Black
Gender: female
November 18 at 2:32 PM

11/6/18 Avalon is the picture perfect dog! She is calm, easy going, walks well on a leash, adores her humans, is gentle with kids, great in a crate and house trained. Even better, she LOVES to chase butterflies and catch balls in the air (though could have her own youtube channel of funny outtakes as she isn't very good at it). She will also chase a ball, though hasn't gotten the point that she needs to bring it back quiet yet. I think she thinks the toddler that is playing with her should come and retrieve it! She will stand in the kiddie pool to cool her tiny paws and will actually run nicely next to you for at least 1/2 a mile (the humans at the ranch may struggle running further, she doesn't seem to be wanting to stop at 1/2 a mile).

9/10/18 Avalon is new but we know she is sweet, calm and good with other dogs and kids. Walks well on a leash and crates nicely. She is a smaller girl, around 55 pounds and needs to lose about 5 pounds.

Mikey is looking for a foster home while he waits for his forever home. He is crate and house trained, loves water, squeak toys, playing tug of war and fetch! He plays well with other dogs and ignores the cats. He also chases bugs! He is reactive to dogs when on a leash and we are working on that, but plays nicely off leash. He is on the smaller size and with some very basic obedience will be an amazing companion!

10-15-18 Mikey is a fun, energetic dog! He will fetch until he falls over and then takes a rest in the pool! He is getting so much better with manners. He knows to sit for everything he wants. He loves treats and training, will play all day long with other dogs and is the very typical young lab!

8/29/18 Mikey is so much fun. Energetic and spunky, loves to fetch and is good in a crate. His favorite game right now is chasing the dragonflies around the yard. Good thing for the dragonfiles, he's not very good at catching them!

Cinco- DOB 2017

November 15 at 10:00 AM

Thank you Fran for fostering Cinco!

11/12/18 Happy Veteran's Day! I picked up this handsome lab, Cinco. How HOTLR chooses names is a mystery to me. Is Cinco the 5th born, lucky #5, the 5th rescue of the day? I just love all the sweet personalties, all our labs posses. So more on Cinco. The previous descriptions are accurate. I have been fostering Cinco for two days, but he is so easy going, playful, submissive with our labs (3), people pleasing, intelligent, quick learner. Cinco rode well all the way home. He has made himself at home. The transition from the lab ranch to our home was smooth. It's as if he had been part of our family all along. I believe Cinco will be comfortable, loving, self in his fur ever home. Cinco is an eighth month old puppy; a gentle lab. We are crating Cinco. He wants to be with the rest of the pack and out of the crate at night. Cinco makes a fuss at first, but soon settles down. He is learning to sit for treats, meals, to go outside. Cinco appears to be house trained, no accidents, hooray for Cinco! He has a healthy appetite. He plays all day with our ten month old lab mix. Our older labs X2 are showing him the pack order. Cinco is submissive and obeys their commands. We have two cats. Cinco is interested in them, but in a good friendly way. He minds well and leaves the cats alone. He has not shown any aggression towards them. I am happy to foster Cinco. But, I will be so proud when he finds his fur ever home. He is a treasure.

10/28/18 Cinco is such a sweet dog. He is so good with kids and will be a great family dog. He would love a home with another dog as he is still a pup and likes a leader dog around. He is well worth the time an adolescent dog needs to become the perfect pup!

10/5/18 Cinco loves the water, loves to wrestle with other dogs and to play chase. He is a submissive boy and plays well with all personality types!

10/1/18 Cinco is a beautiful lab mix, most likely with a german shepherd. He is so gentle and sweet. He loves all people and dogs. He is great with children, though may accidentally knock smaller ones over. He is submissive and easy going, great in a crate and seems house trained. He enjoys the water and wrestling with other pups. He will be a larger dog when grown and will love you forever!

9/10/18 Cinco is new to the Rescue, but what a cute guy. He is going to be a large dog. Right now he is a sweet pup, loves to play with other dogs, but can still be snugly.

Kara loves her big brother (my white Lab) she's very playful with all other dogs she's met (Kara loves the dog park..plays with every dog and doesn't want to leave; loves every single person she meets (she'll go up to anyone with smile and take pets from them; loves car rides and gets excited when you get the leash out; potty trained; crate trained; doesn't tear up toys (she loves to carry toys and my slippers around the house); Kara loves to chew on bones (and could do this for hours); one of her favorite things to do is chase squirrels (she'll run outside every morning to chase a squirrel up the tree and then stare at the trees to find more); she is a total lap dog and sleeps on the bed with us (she gives morning kisses and likes to snuggle up to you) although she is fine on a dog bed too. 10-15-18 Kara is such a sweet girl. She is great with people of all ages and dogs. She is good in a crate and is house broken, or very close.

8/22 - Eleanor (Ella) is doing great. And has turned into a talker - she lets you know when she's hungry, excited or sitting down. She weighs 58lbs proving she is close to being a teacup lab. Eleanor (Ella) has been with us for 3 weeks and has been great, considering her past. She is JoJo's mama and was found along with him, his brother and another adult female tied up in an abandoned house. We have 3 house-dogs and she has settled in nicely. She is fairly low energy and I say fairly only because at dinner time she does her happy dance!

Ella is looking for someone to love and love her. This sweet petite girl will become your instant shadow.

6/24/18: Eleanor joined HOTLR today and is looking for a foster home until she finds her forever family! She is dog friendly, crate and house trained and loves hanging in the kiddie pool. She is around 5 years old and would love to join your family!

Color: Chocolate
Gender: male
November 12 at 2:56 PM

9/25/2018 - Note: we've adjusted Luke's date of birth, as we think he is probably closer to 5 years old, which shows in his mellow demeanor. Luke has had lots of fun adventures with us: long hikes, some off leash runs (he is NOT the most graceful or speedy runner, but he gives it his all) and a trip to the beach (he LOVED everything about the coast and is a great swimmer, but didn't love when a big wave crashed over his head.) Luke has mastered "sit" and we're working on "stay" and "down." Everyone who meets Luke remarks on how cute he is and how big his paws are, but I think the best thing about Luke is his gentle, loving heart. 8/16/2018 Thank you, Alison for fostering Luke. Luke has been with me (and my 10 yr old HOTLR Alum, Sadie) for a few weeks now and he is just a pleasure to have in our home. Luke is a "gentle giant" and his very favorite thing in the world is to give and get lots of love. Luke would be a wonderful addition to anyone's home. 7/1/18 Luke was rescued today and is looking for his forever home!

7/28/18 Luke is an awesome, laid back boy who loves everyone. He is a big boy, around 85 pounds, and is very well behaved. He will sit next to you while you pat his head and when he wants more love he puts his paw on your knee. He's good around children, walks pretty well on a leash and is ready for a forever home!

He is living at the Ranch, but would love a foster family while he is waiting for his forever home.

Thanks to William George for sponsoring Luke! We could not save as many great Labs like Luke without our incredible sponsors!

Thanks to Laurie and family for fostering Lincoln!

HI Everyone - it's Lincoln again- I figure it's about time for an update. I'm doing really great in my foster home, but I'd love to have my very own forever home. I LOVE playing with the dogs in my foster home - so if you have pups in your house I'm sure we will get along GREAT! Also I'm super with kids too. I've been helping the kids here play fortnite and I love it when we go outside and they throw toys for me!! Now that it's cooling off I'm sure you are looking for someone to snuggle with and I am FANTASTIC at that. I've also been building up my running distance I've now gone as far as 4 miles! But most of the time I'm happy with a nice brisk walk or light jog 20 - 30 min. At the end of the day I LOVE to cuddle on the couch with you. Over all I'm a really chill guy and pretty independent, and as an added bonus I'll keep your yard squirrel free!

Hi Guys - Lincoln here - I've gotten settled in at my foster home now and thought I would tell you a little bit about me. I REALLY LOVE going for walks and jogs. I get really excited at the beginning, (my foster mom says we are working on that) but once I settle down I walk very nicely on my leash. I'm really curious and want to see and explore everything!! I've had a lot of fun playing with the other dogs in the house and I am quickly learning their boundaries too. Once I get the wiggles out I am a champion snuggler, and I like to lay right next to you on the couch while you are relaxing. I like to meet new people and I'm pretty good about not jumping up on them.

My foster mom says I'm really smart - I learned how to use the dog door in about 2 seconds, I know sit and I've picked up the routines of my foster home really fast and I haven't had even 1 accident.

While I think the foster home is really great I would love a family of my own that I can go on adventures or play with then come home have a yummy dinner (I love food too)and snuggle up with.

6/28/18 Today we took Lincoln on his first "light jog" a little 20 minute jog around the neighborhood - he did great we are working on leash manners but once he settles in he does fantastic. I think he'll make a great running buddy - he was starting to get tired at the end of our 20 min jog so for anything longer than that he would need to work up to it slowly. He is a real people dog - he loves being right with the family and wants to sit right next to you.

6/19/18 Lincoln is such a sweet, easy going boy! He loves toys. He will carry them around everywhere he goes. He is so good in a crate and loves other dogs. He has liked every dog we have introduced him to. He would love someone to take him for walks and let him lounge around playing with toys and chewing on a knuckle bones!

6/8/18 Lincoln is new to us. He is very sweet, smart, loves toys and walks well on a leash. Stay tuned for more information on this handsome boy. He came to us from Sutherland Springs as part of a hoarding case. This boy is so very sweet for coming from such a bad situation.

10/31/18 Happy Halloween from JoJo. He is getting more and more lovable each day. He came from a tough place and is building trust and doing a great job. He is coming up to us and loving all those hugs, kisses and walks. His sweet, playful personality is really coming out. Once he gets to know you and trust you...he will make the perfect pup for someone. He would do best with another dog, he loves to imitate everything ours does. :) Monkey see, Monkey do!

10/22/18 Jojo is our new foster & we are in love. ❤️ This poor boy went through a lot & is looking for love, kisses, treats & people to trust. He loves long walks and is friendly toward other dogs. He would love a forever home that has a dog or two. 🐾 He is a shy boy but once he gets to know you after a few hours, he cuddles, kisses, nuzzles & lays right by you. Such a sweetie!

9/28/18 Jojo is ready to find his forever family! This sweet, shy boy would be a great fit for a family with kids, a house with other dogs, or anyone who will love him! It may take a few days to get him out of his shell, but after that he is a cuddly playful little guy. We're still working through the puppy phase, but he's growing up little by little every day. 9/10/18 Jojo has come so far in past month and is turning into a cuddle bug. HeĚs still very shy around new people, but once heĚs comfortable with you, itĚs all kisses and snuggles. HeĚs been great with the girls, very gentle, plays with the other dogs and isnĚt food aggressive. HeĚs gotten MUCH better about chewing (heĚs lucky those shoes were replaceable...). Jojo is ready to meet his forever family who will love him and be loved by him. Please share and let us know if you or someone you know is looking for a pup! 7/26/18: Thank you Blake for fostering handsome JoJo! JoJo is a very sweet and smart puppy. He has a delightful personality although he is a curious puppy especially with cats. He is crate trained and is learning to ring the bells to go outside. He knows "Sit" and "Down". He will make a great addition to a family without cats.

7/2/18: From what we've learned about JoJo, he was found with his mom, her sister, his brother tied up in an abandoned house. He has been with us for just over 24hrs... Jojo is your typical bouncy pouncy lab puppy! Curious, loving and playful.

6/24/18: JoJo is approximately 7 months old and new to HOTLR. He is living at the Ranch, but would LOVE a foster home until he finds his forever home! We will post more about JoJo as we get to know him.

9/30/2018: Ebony had her hip replacement surgery last Wednesday and came back to her foster home on Friday. She is doing well, although we learned that, in spite of the doctor's orders, she doesn't like staying in a crate when her humans aren't around. She will be recuperating for the next 3 months and then she will be looking for her forever home. Her demeanor through all of this has been outstanding. 9/22/2018: Ebony is still feeling right at home with the pack. She has some hip problems and goes in for a hip replacement next Wednesday. She gets around quite well with her pain medication. When she came to us her tail stayed between her legs. Now her tail is wagging almost non-stop. She is shy and takes a little bit to warm up. We had a house full of family, adults to little kids, and she warmed up to all of them and they loved her. We'll keep you posted on her recovery process. 7/28/2018: Thank you Tem and Lucille for fostering Ebony!

Ebony came to her new foster home 2 days ago. She fit right in our pack with our 2 HOTLR alums, Dylan and Sandy. She is calm and easy going. She sleeps through the night on her doggy bed, walks great on the leash, knows some basic commands, shakes hands and eats with the other dogs. We are learning more about her every day and so far, she seems to be the perfect Labrador. She is looking for a forever home.

7/10/18: Ebony was rescued TODAY and is looking for a foster home while she waits for her forever family. We will post more about her as we get to know this sweet girl.

Thanks to Scott Witte, Linda McCloskey and LuAnn Peralta for sponsoring Ebony! We could not save as many great Labs like Ebony without our incredible sponsors!

Timber

Timber- DOB 2015

8/28/2018 Timber continues to win the hearts of everyone who gets to know him! He went to a temporary foster while his regular foster was out of town and did so great! Timber may be very shy and nervous at first, but it only takes a couple days for him to come out of his shell and show his sweet personality. He would really love a family that wants to work with him a bit to build his confidence. He will repay you with lots of cuddles!

6/25/2018 I've been fostering Timber for about two months now, and he's turned into such a happy, spunky boy! He loves to climb into my lap and wiggle around happily. Now that he's comfortable he's decided to try a little counter surfing, but he always stops when I call him away (still, best to keep the food out of paw's reach!). He's eager to please and very friendly once you've earned his trust. Watching Timber learn to trust humans is actually a very rewarding experience - he would be a great dog for someone who doesn't mind his initial shyness and would enjoy pulling this boy out of his shell!

5/24/2018 Timber transitioned to a new foster home, and he was such a champ about it! He was shy at first, but after a few days he was playing with my dog and cuddling with me on the couch. He's great in his crate, house trained, trustworthy if left alone, and overall just a wonderful dog! He's a good choice for someone who wants a more independent dog - I work from home, and he snoozes nicely on a dog bed in my office and doesn't constantly beg for attention/pets (but he appreciates them when offered!).

4/24/2018 Timber is continuing to "bloom"! He's doing an excellent job on leash around the neighborhood and loves chasing his foster brother around the backyard. He is turning into a velcro lab... always underfoot, in the same room as his person, preferably sitting on them if allowed. Timber's love for peanut butter continues to help him open up to new experiences and tricks... His "down" has gotten better since that became the "go to" treat. Timber would love to find a permanent family of his own soon!

3/10/2018 Since the last update, Timber has had few new experiences that have proven how resilient this dog is. He's handled overnight guests gracefully, gotten a bath (with some help from peanut butter!), had a few long car rides and attended a group training session. Every time he is faced with something new, Timber rises to the occasion. We have found that he is happiest when the leash comes out and is an excellent walking buddy!

2/15/2018 We have so many good things to say about Timber. He is blooming more and more. He loves quick ear rubs, tail scratches, beef bones and laying around completely stretched out. He greets us when we come in the door, and has started jumping up and down to show his enthusiasm. Still working on a good "lie down" on command (really our fault, we haven't worked very consistently on it with him).

1/25/2018 Timber is settling into his foster home. This Saturday he will have been with us for 2 weeks. He loves hanging with the permanent lab, and actively engages him and us in play. Timber follows his foster brother's lead around the house He has a beautiful sit for treats, will come near you when he's called for treats (and if he's feeling particularly confident). A good word to describe Timber is independent. He likes to approach new or scary things on his own time. He does best when he is given space to "compose" or "decompress" himself. We have found that providing a quiet spot that he can enter and exit at will helps him be more confident when he is interacting with us. At this point, he will lay under desks or chairs while you are working quietly, and try to steal spots on the sofa or bed to snuggle. Besides treats, the way to this dog's heart is a solid scratching session just above the base of his tail... When he asks for one! There is a lover of a Lab in there, just waiting to come out.

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.
