Emily's Story...
Meet Emily. She is a 2-3 year old pure bred golden retriever. She and Eliza were found wandering around a national forest in Kentucky. No one at the shelter claimed them so they called AGK for help. Eliza and Emily are truly why people loves goldens so much. They wiggle with excitement when humans come around! They like to sit in your lap and paw you until you pet them and most of all, they are sweet gentle girls! Because they are bonded to one another (probably because they relied on each other to stay alive in a national forest), we feel they need to stay together and go to the same home. Unfortunately, Eliza and Emily both have heart worms. However, they will receive the slow kill method due to the lack of medicine available AND their condition is not considered serious. So, these girls are ready for their new home - two princesses just waiting to be spoiled!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Emily, 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.
