Baxter Baxter Baxter

Baxter is a big, big boy with a huge heart and love for people. Baxter is about 4 years old and 66 pounds. He should probably weigh closer to 80.

Baxter seems to have lived a life without much care. He was emaciated and very fearful when we first brought him into Lone Star. He has turned around completely with lots of love, good food and structure. Now he is happy in his big kennel and his fearfulness is almost gone. Baxter has learned that people are kind and caring, so there is nothing to worry about. He LOVES to jump up and "give hugs" to his people, that can knock you over if you are not watching!

Baxter will do best in an active, adult home with a fenced yard. He is house trained and crate trained, too. Because of his history of fearfulness, he will be better in a home without young children.

Baxter is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. He will have heartworm treatment in January and be ready for adoption in February.

Our adoption fee is $295.00 (plus tax).

Sanda Sanda Sanda

Sanda is a beautiful girl who loves everybody! She is about 8 months old and weighs 60 pounds. Sanda loves to cuddle and be with people. She is sure to charm her way up onto the couch with her big brown eyes! Her name means "moon" in Burmese.

Sanda is still very much a puppy, who still has to learn some manners. She needs some work on jumping up and walking nicely on a leash. Sanda loves to wrestle and rough house with her foster brother! She plays too rough for small or senior dogs. She is pretty mouthy, as young Labs are!

Sanda would love to have a large dog buddy in her new home. Because of her size and energy level, she will be good with kids that are at least 10 years old, preferably with experience living with a large dog in the house. Sanda will need a home with a nice sized, fenced back yard to play, as well as a family willing to train her to be a good girl.

Sanda is house trained and kennels up nicely. She will be spayed the first week of January and ready for adoption about mid January. She is vaccinated, microchipped and on heartworm prevention.

If you are interested in providing a loving, forever home for Sanda, please complete our Adoption Application.
Our adoption fee is $295.00 (plus tax).

Hemi Hemi Hemi Hemi

Hemi, short for Hemingway, is an 8 year old chocolate boy, about 100 pounds. He was abandoned with two other dogs before coming to Lone Star Lab Rescue. He was in rough shape, underweight with heartworms and lots of calluses on his body. Hemi just had the look of heartbreak in his eyes. We got to work right away to get him healthy and happy.

Hemi is a great big teddy bear. He loves to be near people and is most content being by your side. You have to watch your step when you’re up and moving about – chances are he’s lying on the floor nearby, especially if you are cooking. He often does not realize he’s so big and thinks he can fit in your lap. He loves to be showered with affection and will paw at you or nose you if he is feeling left out. Clearly Hemi is making up for lost time! You can see in his face how much he loves to snuggle into a big, soft bed.

There are not many things that get him riled up. Hemi is slow and easy going with most things and very patient. He is highly motivated by food, and meal time is when he is most active. Because he’s so tall, he will try to join you for supper at the table.

Hemi is a total sweetheart, who makes friends with everyone he meets. It is hard to think that anyone could have dumped such a lover. We have promised Hemi we will find him a home where he will be pampered and treated like the prince he is. Hemi needs a home where he will have every luxury a dog can imagine, with lots of love and treats.

Hemi is gentle enough for respectful young children who will love him, but not climb on him. He will probably ignore cats, but has not been tested. Hemi is well behaved and can be trusted out of a crate, as long as there is no food on the kitchen counter! He gets along well with other calm, respectful dogs. Wild and crazy won't be a good fit for Hemi!!

Hemi is a noble gentleman of a Lab, who just doesn't take a good picture. He sticks close by his foster mom and she can't get far enough away for a good picture! Trust us, this is one handsome dude.

Crosby Crosby Crosby Crosny

All Labs are special, but occasionally there are Labs that are spectacular! Crosby is one of those spectacular Labs that we don't get very often. Crosby is 1 year old. He weighs about 70 pounds, but is on the thin side. He could put on just a few more pounds.

For a youngster, he is pretty calm and sweet. His temperament is gentle, but outgoing. He still has his moments of wild and crazy, especially when there is a tennis ball around! He loves to throw the tennis ball up in the air and chase it! Gotta love a dog that entertains himself! Crosby is affectionate with his family, but not a big snuggler.

Crosby is a pretty big boy and needs more work on the leash. He is really strong! We are working on that. He will need a family that has the time and energy to take him for walks to train and activities to keep him exercised. Otherwise, he is practically perfect! Crosby is house trained and is a happy boy in his big crate. He gets along very well with other dogs, as long as they don't try to boss him around.

Crosby is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and on heartworm prevention. Due to his size, he will be a good buddy to older kids, about 10 years old and up. We are not sure about cats. We are looking for an active family for Crosby, with a private fenced back yard for play time. He would love to go on hikes and play ball!

Our adoption fee is $295.00 (plus tax).
