Merlin's Story...
This is Merlin! He is a 2-year-old Flat Coated Retriever, extremely sweet, good with everyone, and calm for a young boy. He is house trained - goes to the door when he needs to go out - and knows some basic commands. He loves to greet people with kisses and a gentle wag, and it appears that he thinks everyone is his long lost friend! And by the way, Merlin is stunning in person - this picture does not do him justice! He came out of an Alabama shelter where he spent the last 2 weeks during the horrible storms. We are glad that he is in good hands and look forward to finding him the wonderful home that he so deserves.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Merlin, a Knoxville 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 Knoxville, or seeking a Flat-Coated 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 Flat-Coated Retriever breeders who help with Flat-Coated Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Knoxville paves the way for another one to be saved.
