Vern's Story...
Well hello there people! My name is Vern, aka Verno, The Vern Man, Vernibabalicious - whatever, I will answer to just about anything. My original family could no longer take care of me and dropped me off at a shelter. The nice lady at the shelter felt so bad for me that she called AGK to see if they could take me, then she drove me to Knoxville the same day - could not bare the thought of leaving me in the shelter overnight. Pretty cool of her, huh? So here I am, I love my foster family. My foster dad is a vet and my foster mom is a vet tech which is also super cool because I have ringworms - I know, super yuck. But, I am on medication to clear that up. Other than that, I am healthy, about 9 years old and I must say I am a VERY sweet boy. Actually everyone I meet says - "he is the sweetest dog, how could anyone give him up". I am like - yeah - I know, what the heck. I am a super fine catch of a dog. So ask for me Vern. (Once Vern's ringworm clears he will be tested with dogs and cats).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Vern, a Knoxville Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever for sale in Knoxville, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Knoxville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Knoxville 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 Knoxville 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 Golden Retriever breeders who help with Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Knoxville paves the way for another one to be saved.
