Meet Tex

Hi, my name is Tex and yes, I'm available, so let’s not waste a minute sending an email asking. Fill in an application and let's get this party started!

I'm about 2 yrs. old, 40 lbs., conveniently-sized Black Lab mix, and was rescued from a very scary pound in South Carolina.

People say I'm happy and friendly and sweet! I'm not destructive (unless you happen to be a dog toy). My foster dad says I’m very clever, too!

I'm good with dogs and kids. Life is all about playing and having fun!

I was really curious when I met a cat but I make no promises about whether or not we'd play the the chase game. I guess we’d have to meet.

When my foster dad walks me, and a squirrel or other little animal runs by, I pull a bit, but you can help me learn that’s not polite. The rest of the time I walk well on a leash and will even take the leash in my mouth to try to walk myself.

I'm crate-trained, up to date on shots, neutered, and house-trained. City life is new to me, and I'm looking forward to my forever family introducing me to everything!

I'm looking forward to finding my forever home where I can start my new life as someone's beloved family member and going on walks and playing, and exploring.

If you’d like a chance to meet me and see if we’re made for each other, please submit an application and start the approval process!


1. Adopters must live within 40 miles of Rochester, NY. Our rescue is unable to support greater distances. Please do not ask for an exception, beg, argue, negotiate, or cajole. Sorry, but we are a Rochester only rescue.

2. All responses to inquiries from those who have not applied will be: "Please submit an application."

3. All our dogs listed on Petfinder are available for adoption.

4. If an approved applicant is a good match, the dog you are interested in may be adopted by the time you are approved, and the listing will be removed. We do not hold up adoptions to wait for a new applicant to be approved. Approvals remain good for a year and we will notify you about new dogs as they become available.

Our adoption fees are:
Puppies under 6 months: $400 + $100 Spay/Neuter Deposit
Puppies 6 months – 1 year: $350 + $100 Spay/Neuter Deposit (if applicable)
Dogs 1-7 years: $300
Dogs over 7 years or with serious handicaps: $200.

Lab Lovers Rescue is an all-volunteer organization funded entirely by contributions and fundraising. We count on donations and adoption fees to help defray the costs of caring for our foster dogs. We are delighted to accept any amounts over these adoption fees to help other dogs in our care.
