Gus's Story...
Meet Gus! He is handsome 4 year old golden retriever and labrador retriever mix. He is approximately 4 years old. His owner had to give him up due to health issues, which was extremely difficult for both Gus and his Dad. But, we promised him we would find him a great home. Gus is a wonderful boy who really enjoys the water! He also loves going to doggie day care and even enjoys the company of cats. Gus does very well with children and loves attention from people. He is crate trained, house trained, rides very well in the car and will stick by you off leash if you want to take him on a hike. He is an active boy that needs an active family that will allow him to do the things he enjoys! If you are interested in adopting Gus, please go to our website at www.adoptagoldenknoxville.org and fill out an application. One of our volunteers will contact you ASAP.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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