Story
Tanner is a happy, goofy, affectionate, and athletic boy. He is so smart and knows all the basic commands: sit, stay/wait, down, leave it, find it. He is currently working on "relax" and "no bark". Tanner enjoys playing fetch and going for walks & runs. Tanner is nervous around new people and will need time and patience from his adopters. We are looking for a foster-to-adopt situation with no other animals or children where he can grow into his new home. He will need to continue his professional training and visits with his behavior specialist vet. A home with a backyard is a must. An adopter with experience with dogs, preferably large dogs, and with reactive or fearful personalities/behaviors would help Tanner transition best. He warms up to women much faster so a female adopter would be great. Tanner is a special boy with lots of love to give if you put in the time and have patience. Contact us today to meet Tanner!

Story
LOUIE LOUIE (available for adoption) Meet Louie, a 1 year old, tall Labrador with a happy, playful personality. He is about 1 1/2 years old and 68 pounds.    Louie came to us very skinny, and we have been working to put some weight on him. We are pretty good at that!!!  He has a healthy appetite that fuels fetch sessions and tumble time with his doggy foster brother. He’s gaining a little at a time, whatever he does not burn off during play. Louie is neutered, vaccinated, on heartworm prevention and microchipped   Louie would love to be part of an active family. Louie gets along well with other dogs, and enjoys having both people and dogs for company. He is a big boy, and a baby at heart. His favorite things are squeaky toys, his football, treats, the water, and buddies.   Louie wants to be near the action, and does not want to miss anything. He is enthusiastic in all things, and is learning to be gentle. He is an eager learner and picks up on things quickly. He is housebroken and crate trained.   After a full day of living life to the fullest, Louie settles down easily through the night. Then he wakes ready to do it all again.  Louie will need a fenced back yard with plenty of grassy area for play time. He would really love another dog buddy about his size in his new family. He is being fostered with kids and does great with them. Due to his size and energy level, Louie would be best with kids at least 6 to 8 years old. He has not been tested with cats.    Louie wants to be your BFF, that’s Best Fetching Friend!!  If you are in the DFW area, please see our web site for information on adopting this precious boy. Our adoption fee is $295.  www.LoneStarLabRescue.org

Labrador Retriever

Female, 2 yrs 2 mos
Coppell, TX

Story
CIERRA If you ask Cierra, she is a princess looking for her crown! Cierra is a beautiful pure bred Labrador, about 2 years old. She absolutely loves to be with people and will snuggle up for attention if you let her. Cierra is about 67 pounds, so she is a great, smaller sized Labrador. Cierra has a lot of bounce when you first meet her, but she settles down pretty quickly. She is well house trained, likes her big crate and walks nicely on the leash. She is very smart and catches on quickly. Cierra came to Lone Star a few months ago. We don't know much about Cierra's background, but she was a nervous girl when she first arrived. She is taking some medication that we are sure can be stopped, once she is settled in with her new family. Cierra did not have much training prior to coming to Lone Star. Her foster mom & dad have been working with her to teach good manners, crate training and house breaking. She does not play nicely with other dogs, so we are looking for a home where she can be the center of attention with no other dogs. A home with a 6 foot privacy fence is required for the Princess Cierra. Cierra would probably be a good companion to kids over the age of at least 8 or 10 years old. She is probably too strong and bouncy for little ones. Cierra is a very healthy girl with bright eyes and a shiny, chocolate coat. She is fully vaccinated, spayed, on heartworm prevention and microchipped. If you live in the DFW area and are interested in adopting a princess of your very own, please complete our adoption application. Cierra's adoption fee is $295.

Monty is a fantastic dog. I adopted him in 2021, he is about 4 and a half. He is very quirky, he is afraid of ceiling fans, he loves cuddles and belly rubs. He will sleep with you in bed if you want. He is crate trained. He is very loyal and super friendly to everybody he meets. Everybody he meets becomes his new best friends. He can be active but loves to lounge around the house and sleep. He barely barks. He is house trained and leash trained.

Lambo

German Shepherd Dog Great Pyrenees

Male, Baby
Farmers Branch, TX
Size
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Details
House-trained, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Lambo is a shy but very sweet German Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix. He is very loving once he gets to know you, and thinks he's a tiny lap dog. Lambo is already really big at only 11-months-old, and we expect him to get a little bigger. Lambo lived outside only as a backyard dog before coming here, so he is still learning proper indoor behavior. We believe we have gotten him potty-trained during his time here, but he's never been adopted or fostered for us to know for sure. His twin brother Rocky was adopted immediately in March, but Lambo still waits. He has been waiting for over 3 months. He gets spooked easily while transitioning to indoor life, but with the right home we think Lambo will become a great dog. Come see Lambo today!

Story
Starla is a medium-sized dog, perfect for apartment living. She's playful and active, but knows when its time to settle down. She comes across as shy, but she's being a faker! She loves all ages of people, and plays with the other dogs in the shelter. Starla would not do well in a home with cats. Come play with her!
