Knox on sofa



Hi! My name is Knox. I am a black Labrador retriever/chow chow mix, and I just turned two. I’m a very friendly guy, and I love to give kisses to anyone who wants them.

My daddy named me after the University of Tennessee, located in Knoxville. We love Tennessee football!

My mommy is a veterinary technician, so I sniff her every day when she gets home to see what doggie friends she made at work that day.

When I’m not napping on the sofa waiting for Mom or Dad to get home from work, I enjoy barking at the mail carrier and chewing Mom’s flip flops and Crocs. I also help Dad with his yard work by digging up the flower beds.

At night, I lie in my own bed until Mommy and Daddy are asleep, when I sneak into bed with them.

I am waiting for my new little human brother to arrive in a couple of weeks, so I can show him how to be a great son to Mommy and Daddy!
