Shelby's Story...
Meet Shelby!! This sweet little girl is about 6 months old and has recovered perfectly from having her eye removed due to "narrow angle glaucoma". She rides very well in the car, is very affectionate, LOVES people, does well with kids and she does very well with other dogs, especially large dogs. She is currently in a house with a 9 year old lab mix and a 4 year old. She likes to chew on Kongs. Working toward housebreaking. Since her surgery she is still getting used to her surroundings to be confident to go outside. She loves to curl up with you. She does very well at night and sleeps. She prefers a blanket to sleep on. She rarely barks and knows how to sit. She currently weighs about 33 pounds. Not sure how active she is for running since she is not allowed to run until the vet says that she has recovered sufficiently. Shelby can see perfectly through her one eye and is not expected to have any future complications. Shelby is fully vetted and ready to find her special FORever family. If you have a place in your heart and home for this precious furbaby, please email us for adoption info at info@FORrescue.net. Adopt A Golden is only cross posting.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shelby, a Knoxvillle 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 Knoxvillle, or seeking a Golden Retriever puppy from a breeder in Knoxvillle.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Knoxvillle 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 Knoxvillle 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 Knoxvillle paves the way for another one to be saved.
