Riley's Story...
Hi one and all! My name is Riley. My foster mom calls me Riley Bear because I love to cuddle when I am not playing with my foster brother, he only has two legs. Everyone says I am 8 years old but I don't feel 8. I keep hearing people say, WOW - he's 8? Well, I am kind of bouncy, playful and I still act like a puppy sometimes. I am just a happy boy. I LOVE to play with 4-legged friends too! I can do that all day. I REALLY like to chase cats - that's a lot of fun. I did have heart worms, which the nice people at AGK gave me medicine for and I am better. They say I am healthy now. Oh, my foster mom told me to tell you all that I am house trained and can be trusted alone in the house. I WANT to tell everyone that I love tennis balls, soft toys and squirrel chasing. I am not very big, only 65 pounds but I am all boy! if interested in Riley, visit our website at .
NOTE: Adopt A Golden Knoxville rescue doesn't have an actual shelter building in your area. These dogs are fostered in private homes in East Tennessee. Therefore, it is not possible to meet the dogs and pups prior to their adoption. They are brought up north on a USDA transporter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Riley, a Foster 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 Foster, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Foster.

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