Take a look at

On startup, dhclient reads the dhclient.conf for 
configuration instructions. It then gets a list 
of all the  network  interfaces  that  are
configured  in the current system. For each interface, 
it attempts to configure the interface using the DHCP protocol.

In order to keep track of  leases  across  system  reboots  and  server
restarts,  dhclient  keeps a list of leases it has been assigned in the
dhclient.leases(5) file.   On startup, after reading the  dhclient.conf
file,  dhclient  reads  the  dhclient.leases file to refresh its memory
about what leases it has been assigned.

May be, you need a script (with "dhclient3 eth0" inside) that would
run on every system startup? Besides, take a look at dhclient.leases file.

Good luck!
