Jem's Story...
My name is Jem! My friend Radley and I were brought to an Tennessee shelter where we waiting for our families. When no one came looking, they called AGK to see if they could take both of us because I did not want to leave my friend behind. And they said - well of course! YAY! Everyone thought at first that we were bonded, but we are not. We just relied on each other for comfort at that shelter. So, I am about 2 years old. I am what you refer to as "Flat Coat Retriever" or "Black Golden". I am rather calm for a young boy and house trained. I love other dogs and I love attention from humans. I am healthy although I have a tick borne disease called Ehrilicia that is treated with antibiotics.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jem, a Knoxvillle Flat-Coated Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Flat-Coated Retriever for sale in Knoxvillle, or seeking a Flat-Coated Retriever dog from a breeder in Knoxvillle.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Knoxvillle already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Knoxvillle breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Flat-Coated Retriever breeders who help with Flat-Coated Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Knoxvillle paves the way for another one to be saved.
