I would like to give Tennessee Valley Golden Retriever Rescue a 5 star rating and a thumbs up. They have been very professional and timely in finding me the right match for my situation. It is important to note they are out to find the perfect dog for the situation. In the beginning, I let them know I was not in a huge hurry to get a dog. My main objective was to get a dog that would do well with another male retriever and cats. They assured me they could find me a really good match and they did. It took a few weeks and they gave me a call to let me know they had a perfect match.
I have no other experience with other rescues but I think it would be hard to beat Tvgrr.com because of my experience with them. If you are wanting a dog that will fit well in a family setting I definitely recommend a golden retriever.
Hi! I am Daryl Driscoll! i would like to tell you the story of how we got our precious baby, Lulu. We lived in Birmingham, AL and we wanted to get a golden retriever and found their website. Someone came and checked out our house and said we could get one. They later told us that we actually needed a real fence and not electric like we had and we were devastated. We later moved to Knoxville and heard that they were coming to Petsmart in Turkey Creek and so we went. We found a little boy and while we took him on a walk the same lady that rejected us went on the walk with us and remembered us! She told us that they were way to harsh on our family and that they were sorry. We went on the website and found a little girl named Penney. We went to get her and her foster parent started crying which told us that we picked the right dog. we named her Lulu cause my aunts name is Penney. She is about six years old and we love her so much! She is full of energy, she is beautiful, sweet, gentle, and loves people and our cat, Chester. I couldn't imagine our life without Lulu. She completes our family.
