Zion - Donate
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK "MORE" TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! Look at what a good boy I am! My name is Zion; I weigh only 56 pounds and I'm somewhere around 7 years old. I am so happy to be in AGB's hands! AGB picked me up from a shelter and already my life is so much better - and I haven't had the easiest life. I've been neglected or on my own for a while. I need some TLC and good food to put on some weight, get some supplements for my muscle tone and get my skin and fur back into beautiful Golden locks. I am so looking forward to being someone's Golden Boy. I love people and I love other dogs. We could have such a great life together, don't you agree? Maybe for Christmas, I'll have a new family. That would be the very best present! With me, you'll find out how loyal and loving a sugar-faced Golden can be.

Brummey
Hello there, I'm a five year old boy named Brummey. The name "Brummey" sounds like one of Santa Claus' elves, doesn't it? Well, with my velvet soft ears, big smile and golden glow, I could mistaken for one of Santa's elves this time of year. A 69 pound bundle of joy that, besides being house trained, is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Like Santa, I do like to get around. In fact, my previous owners said I would escape their yard so I guess I need a secure fence. I was just looking around for some kids or other dogs or even a cat because I like them all. Somebody told me I was "a big love bug". I'd like to go to my new home before Santa Claus arrives; maybe there's a spot for me under your Christmas tree. Love, Brummey

Hudson II
Look deeply into my eyes...... How could anybody not be mesmerized by them? Hiya, I'm Hudson and I'm a one and a half year old boy. I weigh just under 50 pounds. I can't imagine why I wound up as an orphan. That's just not right. These AGB folks say that I'm a perfect boy - extremely sweet, smart and loving. I walk well on a leash and I ride well in a car. And I'm a pretty handsome fellow to boot! So is that enough information to hypnotize you into falling in love with me? I don't want to be an orphan; I want to be your boy!

Miss Bama - Donate-Adoption Pending
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK "MORE" TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU!" Hello there, please let me introduce myself - I am Miss Bama. I think they named me Miss Bama because I have the good looks and poise of a beauty pageant winner. I'm a sweet and beautiful girl of eight years and I weigh a trim 44 pounds; a southern girl who hails from Montgomery. Unfortunately, I was discovered at a shelter so I think I've lost my pageant sash and crown somewhere along the line. I also found out I have heart worms and might need some dental work. It's hard for a beauty queen like me to be neglected without a family to care for me. I so enjoyed my freedom ride to Birmingham. AGB is going to find me a new forever family as soon as I'm cured. I am hoping that some wonderful family might want to adopt a Golden girl like me and let me be their Miss Congeniality.

Archie - SPECIAL NEEDS - Donate
PLEASE DONATE TO MY FUND! CLICK "MORE" TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! It must be almost Halloween! I'm white as a ghost and have big dark eyes like a ghost but instead of trying to scare you, I've wanted to be an invisible presence like a ghost. Actually, I'm a cute puppy named Archie. I'm one years old and I weigh 52 pounds. AGB came and rescued me out of a noisy, scary shelter where I was terrified. And when they took me to the vet's for my medical check-up, I decided staying in my crate, being mostly invisible like a ghost, was my safest choice. Thanks to a lot of patience from my fosters and training from a dog expert, I'm finding out that people are nice. My foster family is showing me lots of love and care and attention so maybe Halloween will be fun and treats this year and from now on! Maybe I could be somebody's Halloween "treat"? I'm not brave enough to say "BOO" just yet. But soon!

Strider - SPECIAL NEEDS - Donate
PLEASE DONATE TO MY FUND! CLICK "MORE" TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! I'm Strider. I'm very handsome and I'm almost 3 years old. I want to be a very good boy but I don't always know how to be. If I'm in pain or threatened, I might growl or seem to be mean. I need help learning to settle down because I can react in fear to new situations. But AGB, along with a wonderful trainer, is going to show me the way. I have a loving soul and I love my dog buddies and my adult family members but I need an experienced adopter to help me gain confidence and trust. AGB wants to do everything possible to find me a perfect fit in a new home. Would you help me? Please click on the "Donate" button on the next page after you click "More" below. And, once my training is done, maybe you could see that I could be your special fellow. Hopefully, Strider.

Buzz - Medical fully funded
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE GENEROUS BENEFACTOR WHO DONATED TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK "MORE". Hello, my name is Buzz. I'm about 3 or 4 years old, handsome as can be, and I weigh 41 pounds - not too big. Somebody moved and didn't take me along. They didn't give me heart worm preventative either. I can't figure out why - because I'm very sweet and loving and I already know basic commands. I really like riding in the car but I especially like belly rubs! If you think you'd like a boy that will give you kisses in exchange for belly rubs, get in touch with AGB right away. Okay?

Twinkle - Medical Fully Funded
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE GENEROUS BENEFACTORS WHO DONATED TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK "MORE". My name is Twinkle and I should be a "star"! I'm 3 years old and weigh a petite 48 pounds. I had been living at a Flea Market with my babies (they've all been rescued too) before AGB rescued me. Somebody very nice fed us regularly but I've been on my own for a long time. I don't like being put in crates or cages very much; I'm used to being able to move around. My rescuers said I was sweet, submissive and lovable. And I sure would like for my person to be around to spend time with me. I'd just love them to the moon and back. I'm pretty sure I would sparkle like a "diamond in the sky" if someone special would give me a home and be my family. Please ask AGB about me. Love, Twinkle

Murphy - SPECIAL NEEDS
I'm Murphy, a 2 year old boy who weighs 50 pounds. I'm neutered, up to date on vaccinations and ready for my new home. I'd love to live in a calm home with a special somebody who would be by my side a lot. Before coming to AGB, I was dropped off at a shelter when my family moved away. You can imagine how scared I was. If you look into my big brown eyes, you'd see how a youngster like me would like some reassurance that I won't be abandoned again. Small children might overwhelm me. I'm very sweet and smart and looking for my forever home and companion. Please let it be you. I'm waiting.

Butter - Special Needs - Fully Funded
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE GENEROUS BENEFACTORS WHO DONATED TO MY SPECIAL NEEDS FUND! CLICK "MORE". Hello! Here I am - show dog material in the looks department with a few divo (male diva) qualities - I'm just not fond of other dogs; cats either. I weigh 56 pounds and I'm 3 years old. I'm a gorgeous boy, who sets hearts aflutter, but I would prefer to be your one and only. At the shelter where I was found, I felt the need to protect myself from other dogs. I adore people and I would love you so much. I promise to be a good and faithful companion. AGB is sending me off to finishing school (for dogs). They sure could use a little help with the cost of my boarding and my past medical treatment for heart worms if you would be kind enough to donate by clicking on the "Donate" button on the next page after you click "More" below. Thankfully, I'm cured of heart worms now but still need to finish paying for the treatment. You might be the perfect person for a very special pup like me; please contact AGB and let's get together!

Winnie
Hello! I'm winsome Winnie and I'm only 1 year old. I weigh 29 pounds. I'm definitely a pretty little southern girl - I was discovered in a shelter in Selma. Somebody from AGB picked me up and said I rode really well in the car. I even slept most of the trip so I guess I really like road trips! Wouldn't you like to take a sweet little girl like me on road trips with you permanently? If so, please contact AGB and ask for Winnie. p.s. I do not think I like cats.
