Parker - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi! My name is Parker & I'm 2 years old. I weigh 50 lbs. Recently my owner's job changed and she had to start traveling all the time. She hated having to leave me and didn't want me to be alone so much because I get really anxious when I'm alone and I don't like being crated. So even though we were both sad, she made the tough decision to contact AGB about helping me. I'm a sweet, smart girl. I know basic commands, I'm house trained, I love kids and all people and I'm very friendly around other dogs. Because of my all around awesomeness, AGB found a great family for me right away and I should be adopted very soon! I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who supports AGB. Because of you dogs like me get to have a second chance at happiness. Thank you! Your friend Parker.

Rusty IV - DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND
Hello friends, my name is Rusty. I'm a gentleman of 12 years old and I weigh about 60 lbs. I have been a little sad and confused lately. You see, my owner brought me to a Vet and left me there. He didn't come back and I can't understand why. I know I'm an older fella, but I still like to have fun and I am the friendliest, sweetest boy you could meet. I'm very good in the house and I love to go for walks and to snuggle. I am lucky that AGB got me when they did. My ears were hurting something awful and in fact I can't hear a thing. AGB found that I have really bad ear infections in both ears and it has been a chronic problem for me. It probably caused my hearing loss. They also found I have those nasty old heartworms and a touch of arthritis. But thankfully, they are giving me all the medical care I need to feel better and get ready for my forever family. I love everyone! Kids, adults, teenagers, other dogs, even cats don't bother me. If you could find a place for me in your heart and home I would be so happy! PS...I qualify for the Senior to Senior program which means adopters 65 and older don't have to pay an adoption fee to take me home! Also, AGB is accepting donations to help pay for my medical care. Any amount you could give would be appreciated.

Juna
Hello, my name is Juna. I'm a year and a half old and I weigh 65 lbs. My owners brought me to AGB because their other dog was a bit of a bully to me. I'm somewhat timid and fearful in new situations. Fast movements make me a little nervous. I'm very submissive and I love kids, but because of my fears I'm probably best suited for a family with older children who will be kind and gentle with me. I love playing with toys and chew bones. Even though I'm a little shy, I do warm up to people when I get to know them. I love belly rubs, baths (can you believe that?!)and walks. I know basic commands and would probably be a great jogging partner. So if you are a kind, patient person who is willing to spend some time teaching me to trust again, the love I will return to you will be 10 fold. What do you say? Should we meet?

Rania
Hi there! I'm Rania, a 3 year old girl weighing in at 50 lbs. I'm so grateful to be at AGB! You see, I had a home and I thought things were going great but one day my owners moved away. They packed up all their things and just left. They took everything with them but me! I was so scared, but thankfully one of the neighbors took me in and contacted AGB to see if they could help me. Well you know the old softies at AGB couldn't say no, so now here I am! They are making sure I'm healthy & vaccinated. Now I am ready to find a new family, one who will never leave me! I'm a sweet girl and I love to give hugs! I get along well with other dogs and I promise I won't be any trouble at all. So if you're looking for a pretty girl to love forever, I'm the little lady for you! I hope we get to meet soon!

River-ADOPTION PENDING
Howdy y'all! My name is River. I'm about a year and a half old and I weigh 70 lbs. AGB got me from a shelter and I'm sure glad they did! The shelter folks were awfully nice to me, but they said AGB specializes in finding homes for big golden fellas like me and I sure need a home of my own! I'm not cut out for shelter life! I had some worms and a bad tooth, but the Docs at AGB fixed me right up. The couple who picked me up were just as sweet as pie to me and they called me "a beautiful, big boy, inside and out". I love car rides, kisses and belly rubs. I also think I'm a lap dog and who's gonna tell me different? Have you seen my picture? I'm adorable. So if you're ready to bring a brand new best buddy home FOREVER, I'm just the guy for you. What are you waiting for? Go ahead and submit that application and be sure to write down that you want to meet River! See you soon.

Kuzy
Well Hello there everyone, Kuzy here. I'm about 3 years old & I weigh 60 lbs. I was in a shelter for a while and it was pretty crowded, but then AGB came & busted me out of there. They promised they won't rest until they match me with my perfect forever family. I'm pretty smart. I know the command "sit", I ride well in the car, and I'm very sweet and affectionate. If you want to have a beautiful boy like me in your family, let AGB know. I hope to see you soon! Love, Kuzy.

Bishop
Hi folks! I'm Bishop! I'm 2 years old and weigh 68 lbs. I somehow wound up in a shelter which was kind of scary. But AGB agreed to take me in and find a great home for me. I like car rides and I know some commands like sit. I'm really a sweet boy. I think we could be the best of friends. If you think so too ask to meet me, Bishop.

Nigel - DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND
Hello everyone, my name is Nigel. I'm 2 years old and weigh 62 lbs. I came to AGB from a shelter and I have been a very sick boy! I'm being treated for parvo, an illness that could have killed me if AGB hadn't agreed to take care of me. I'm a friendly and sweet boy and I like car rides. I look forward to the day that I am all well and can become a member of a real family. If you're looking for a fine fella like me I hope you'll contact AGB and ask to meet me. PS...My care is very expensive for AGB, but they never complain. I would really love to raise the money to pay for my treatment. If you could donate a few dollars I would really appreciate it.

Peppie-ADOPTION PENDING
Hello, I'm Peppie, a sweet 12 week old boy who weighs 21 lbs. I was found abandoned with my sister Poppie. We had been out on our own for a while and we were really scared and hungry! Luckily for us some people spotted us and kept trying to catch us. Finally a nice lady got us and immediately took us to AGB. They are making sure we are healthy & cared for while they look for just the right families for us. Do you want to add a handsome little puppy to your family who will be your best buddy? If so, ask to meet me. I know we'll have tons of fun together.

Luckily for us some people spotted us and kept trying to catch us. Finally a nice lady got us and immediately took us to AGB. They are making sure we are healthy & cared for while they look for just the right families for us.

Oralie
Hi there! I'm Oralie, a 9 month old, 43 lbs. little girl. I was picked up by animal control because I had been abandoned at a church and was hanging around there for weeks. The shelter found that I had been shot and had to have the bullet wound in my neck looked at. Can you believe someone would shoot a sweet little lady like me? Life out on the streets can be rough and some people are not kind, but everyone I have met here at AGB has been super sweet to me. My time on the streets has left me a little needy. I tend to cling to my humans and like to be cuddled and hugged. Sometimes I get a little too excited so I would probably do best in a family with no small children. If you think you can give me the love, stability and attention I need, submit an application and let AGB know you want to meet me, Oralie.

Eko - ADOPTED
Hey there everybody, I'm Eko. I'm a 2-3 year old, 48 lb. girl looking for a new home. My family brought me to AGB because I really like to play and need someone to give me lots of good exercise and attention. I love to be outside but I really need a fenced yard so I can be safe when I play. I like to play with kids and other dogs and I like to go for walks. I'm a very affectionate girl and love to give kisses. If you think we would be a good match, ask AGB to get us together for a meet. See you soon - Eko.

Jax - ADOPTION PENDING MEDICAL RELEASE - DONATE
Hello, hello - Jax here. I'm a 7 year old fella weighing in at 93 lbs. I was found by a great couple who tried for over a month to find my owners but no one ever came for me. They tell everyone I'm the sweetest thing and they called me a "gentle giant". I love getting petted and I get along great with kids and other dogs. Some dogs thinks this is weird but I love baths and brushing! It feels like doggy massage to me! I like to go for walks, and I never have accidents in the house. AGB tested me and found out I have those nasty heartworms so they are making sure I get the medicine I need to get well. Soon I'll be all better and ready to go to my new family. AGB has found a really good match for me and I am so excited that I get to be with them forever. I am going to concentrate on getting well now. Thanks for caring about me and reading my story. AGB's friends really are Angels to all us orphans. Your friend, Jax. PS...My medicine is pretty expensive. If you could make a donation of any amount to help AGB pay for it, I would really be grateful. Thanks friends!

Aubie
Hello friends! My name is Aubie and I'm 9 years old and weigh 57 lbs. My home was a little crowded with 7 dogs and 4 cats, so my family thought it was best to trust AGB to find me a new family who could devote more time to me. I normally get along well with other dogs. I'm very loving with people, gentle with children and I love cats. I know basic commands and I'm house and crate trained. As you can see, I'm an all around great fella. I hope you will consider letting me come join your family. Just set up a time to meet me and I know we'll be fast friends!

Caddy
Hi friends! I'm Caddy, a 12 month old, 41 lb. boy. I was lost and alone when a Good Samaritan found me running down a lonely road. She tried to find my owner but no one ever came for me or reported me lost. We were both really sad that she couldn't keep me, but she trusts AGB to match me with a perfect forever family for me. I'm a sweet fella, very submissive, and I got along well with my rescuer's dog. I also ride well in the car. If you are looking for a fun fella to be your very best friend, please let AGB know you want to meet me, Caddy.

Hi folks, I'm Bella. I'm a 10 year old lady and I weigh 40 lbs. My parents divorced and a nice lady took me in for a while so I wouldn't end up at a shelter. She knew she couldn't keep me forever so she contacted AGB because she knew they would find the very best family for me.

Everyone here is raving about what a sweet girl I am! If you want to add the sweetest girl ever to your family, be sure and tell AGB you want to meet me, Bella.

Charlie V-ADOPTION PENDING MEDICAL RELEASE-DONATE
Hello, I'm Charlie. I'm 13 years old and weigh 52 lbs. I know basic commands and I like to play with other dogs. I'm uninterested in cats, but I love kids and everyone I meet.  My favorite thing is to be cuddled and petted. I have been known to nudge the hand of anyone who stops petting me and that usually gets me more love. I love belly rubs and getting my fur brushed. I also like to be held in your lap. AGB found out I am heartworm positive and need some dental work done, but they promise to help me get well and matched with just the right family for me. They have a really neat program called Seniors for Seniors that will waive my adoption fee to people who are 65 years or older. I don't care how old my adopters are, as long as they like to pet handsome gold dogs! If you are interested in being my forever family, please let AGB know and they will arrange for us to meet. I'll see you soon! Your friend, Charlie. PS...If you could make a donation to help AGB pay for my medical care I would be so grateful. Thank you!

Chuck-ADOPTION PENDING
Hi folks, I'm Chuck. I'm 6 months old and weigh 29 lbs. I wound up in a shelter with my brother. We were frightened and didn't know what would happen to us. Then we were told we were going to a place called "rescue". We didn't really know what that meant, but the people here have been really kind to us. They are making sure we are healthy and then they are going to find us real families! If you want to add a fun and snuggly puppy to your family I think you should submit one of those adoption application thingys and ask to meet me, Chuck. I hope to meet you soon!

Eno - ADOPTION PENDING
Good day everyone, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Eno and I am 12 years old. I weigh 74 lbs. I’m in pretty good shape for a gentleman of my age. I don’t see quite as well as I used to, but nothing too drastic. I have a few worn teeth and could use a joint supplement from time to time to help me move around a little better, but all in all I don’t have many complaints. I was lost and a really nice family took me in a few months ago, but they moved to a home without a fence. One day I almost got hit by a car and they realized I needed to be in a safer place. We were all sad when I had to leave, but they trust AGB to make sure I get the very best family. I’m an all around good guy and I love other dogs, cats, and kids. I’m house trained, sweet and friendly. If you would just get to know me, I promise I will be your best buddy. So what are you waiting for? Go on an submit that application and ask to meet me, Eno, today. PS…I qualify for the Seniors to Seniors program which means adopters age 65+ can adopt me and the adoption fee will be waived!

Hank-ADOPTION PENDING
Howdy folks, Hank here. I’m a 9 year old feller and I weigh 54 lbs. I found myself in a shelter recently and was worried that all those folks coming in to adopt wouldn’t look twice at a “mature” guy like me. But that changed when AGB agreed to take me in. They promise me that they will find just the right family for me, no matter what. They are getting me all gussied up to meet you, taking care of a few little skin issues, my ear infections and even cleaning my teeth. I’m a sweet boy who just needs a second chance to love and be loved. If you are looking for a new best friend, I’m just the guy for you. So fill out that adoption application and be sure to put on there that you want to meet me, handsome Hank.

Sunni
Hi y’all! Sunni here. I’m about 5 years old and weigh 63 lbs. I was a lonely, lost girl and eventually got picked up by animal control. I was held for about a month, but no one came for me. The people caring for me knew I was not meant for life in a cage, so they started contacting rescues and asking them to take me in. Soon an AGB volunteer came to meet me and she knew I was meant to be with AGB! So she made the arrangements and before long we were on a road trip to a place called Birmingham. AGB is treating some skin issues for me and I’m feeling much better. I’m a friendly girl and I know some commands like sit. I played well with other dogs at the animal control facility, though I prefer other dogs not hang around while I’m eating. I’m affectionate and playful and I ride well in the car. I love toys and treats and a good back scratch. I would really love a forever family of my own! Are you interested? If so, tell AGB you want to meet me and let’s get started on our new life together, OK? See you soon, your new best friend, Sunni.

Sweet Pea -ADOPTION PENDING- DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Hello everyone, my name is Sweet pea. I’m a 7 year old, 34 lb. girl. I was surrendered by my owner to a shelter. The shelter contacted AGB and asked if they would take me in. I was so surprised, but happy, when a volunteer came to get me. You see, I was not in very good shape. I needed vaccinations, spaying and a microchip, but I also have a mass that needs to be removed and they found I have those icky heartworms. Most places wouldn’t bother with me, but AGB says they will get me healthy and then find me a family of my very own. Can you believe that? More than anything I want to be healthy and loved! I’m a sweet girl and I ride well in the car. If you give me a chance, I could be your very best friend. So what do you say? Will you contact AGB and ask to meet me? I sure hope you do and I get to meet you soon. Your friend, Sweet Pea. PS…If you could make a donation to help pay for my medical care it would really mean a lot to me. Thank you!

Venus - ADOPTION PENDING-TURKEY DOG
Hello friends! My name is Venus, and I’m a 3-year old girl. Some nice people found me in a forest and took me to a shelter.

VENUS IS FULLY SPONSORED THANKS TO A VERY GENEROUS, ANONYMOUS DONOR!
