Dutchess's Story...
Hi, my name is Duchess! I am 8 years old pure bred Golden Retriever and have the most gorgeous red coat of fur. Foster mom loves my coat because I don’t shed nearly as much as her other goldens. Don’t let my age fool you though…I have the energy of a two year old! Foster Mom can’t believe how playful and energetic I am! I like to keep her on her toes so I follow her around the house at all times. There is never a moment I am away from her (unless she leaves to go to work). I am housetrained and behave myself when she is away. My toys help me behave…Nylabones are my favorite!

I am not one to share food with my foster siblings so I need to be fed seperate from other dogs. And I probably need to be in a home with older children - preferably 12 or older. I am the sweetest girl you will ever meet, full of sass and spunk. And I just love attention from mom…a pet on the head makes me the happiest I’ve ever been. Mom even lets me sleep in the bed with her at night…she is the best! Car rides are also my favorite! I don’t know what I like more…pets on the head or car rides. I love sticking my head out the window with the wind on my face…it’s the best feeling in the world! I have the best personality of any dog she has ever fostered (and she has fostered over 25 dogs!) I may be a stinker at times, but I promise to try my best if someone will just give me a chance.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dutchess, 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.
