Maddox's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Maddox's Story...
UPDATE: Maddox was diagnosed with a stage 5/6 heart murmur (subaortic stenosis). This means that this little guy’s life expectancy will be 4-6 years and he will tire easily. He can have fun like a normal pup but cannot handle strenuous exercise. He's not in pain, just born with a weak heart. About Maddox: My name is Maddox and I am a 5 month old pure bred Golden Retriever. My family gave me up because they were allergic to me. Unfortunately, once I came to AGK, their doctor told me I have a heart murmur so off I went to UT Vet School. There they diagnosed me with subaortic stenosis, which is a birth defect. There is no cure or surgery for this so the doctor put me on beta blockers. Hopefully with these meds, I can live up to 6 years of age. I am a happy, lively puppy and the good news the UT doctor said I can run and play and be a dog. That is good because I still have a great life ahead of me. I love other dogs, kids, humans, everyone. I need a home with a medium energy dog to show me the ropes and a stay-at-home/work-from-home parent. If you think this could be you, ask for me, Maddox. MADDOX IS TO BE ADOPTED LOCALLY - NOT FOR TRANSPORT

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maddox, a Knoxville Golden Retriever puppy 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 puppy 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.
