Cricket - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi everyone! I'm Cricket, a 12 week old girl weighing in at just over 11 pounds. I found myself alone and scared so I wandered up to a home. Thank goodness the kind humans who lived there took me in and tried to find out where I came from. When no one claimed me, they contacted AGB. They tell me I'm adorable, whatever that word means, and they already have a family who wants me! If it all works out I should soon be in my forever home. Please cross your paws that everything works out for me and please consider putting in an application so you'll be ready to adopt from AGB the next time an adorable baby like me comes along.

Rosie
Welcome new orphan Rosie! I'm a senior girl at 10 years old and a dainty 51 pounds. My ​family was very sad when they couldn't keep me but the nice lady who drove me to Birmingham assured them that ​AGB will ​take good care of me. I love to snuggle and my tail wags nonstop when kids are around.​ You see, my former family included three sweet girls who doted on me and I will never forget that. If I could find a home with kids or grandkids to love, that would be really nice. I'll even bring my own bed, toys and the Dr. Seuss book my sweet girl tucked into my bag so my new family can read to me. My needs are simple. I'm a laid back girl who just wants love and attention. The only thing that really bothers me is cats and I'll admit that I don't like them. If you have room in your heart for a sweet girl like me, please fill out an application and let's get to know each other. AGB tells me that I qualify for something called a Senior Program, so be sure to ask about that if you are in your golden years too.

Blue
Welcome new orphan Blue! I'm 5 year old Blue, which kinda describes how I was feeling when I came to AGB. I was having a lot of separation anxiety and my previous family knew I needed a family who could be home more often. I'm healthy (and weigh 67 pounds) and happy in my foster home but am looking for my forever place. I am house trained and good with little humans and other animals. If you're looking for a faithful friend who will never leave your side, look no further! Just contact AGB and let's start our future together.

Wind - Donate to Medical Fund
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK "MORE" TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! Don’t you just love my name? I’m a 5 year old handsome guy weighing about 33 pounds. I was found abandoned at a sewer treatment plant by the relative of an AGB volunteer. How lucky was I to be found by someone who loves Goldens? Some of the workers there helped catch me. Once I was in the car, I knew something good was happening so I just relaxed and enjoyed the ride. When I got to the vet, they found out I have these nasty things called heartworms but ABG is paying for treatment to get rid of them. I need to gain a few pounds but that will be easy now that I’m no longer on my own. If you’re interested in adopting a handsome guy like me, get your application in now because once I’m healthy they tell me I’ll be adopted quickly. I hope so.

Molly VII
Hello, I’m Molly and I’m about two years old. I weigh 45 pounds. My previous life wasn’t so great, as I was kept outside in a kennel and didn’t really know much about people. Once I was rescued, it took a couple of weeks before I felt comfortable enough to let anyone pet me. I eventually made my way to AGB where a nice lady at the vet’s office took an interest in me and helped me to slowly gain trust. Now I’m in a foster home and doing great. They tell me it will take time but I know the right person will come along and sweep me off my feet. If you’re patient and caring and would like to give me a chance, I hope you’ll contact the folks at AGB.

Jody - ADOPTION PENDING MEDICAL RELEASE-Donate
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK "MORE" TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! Hello, my name is Jody. I'm a four year old beautiful girl and I weigh 63 pounds. I came to AGB because my owners have health problems and can't take care of me anymore. Everyone says I'm incredibly sweet and I love everyone. I'm house trained and I turn in circles and bark if I need to go outside just to let you know. I know sit and down; I'm such a good girl. I do have heart worms though and AGB is making sure I get the medicine I need. Can I be your girl? If you think so, please contact AGB and fill out an application. I want a family to call my own.

Beau III
Hey Y'all, Beau here. I'm a 4 year old fella weighing in at 87 lbs. I'm looking for a home where I'll be loved and the center of attention. I'm sweet, loving and playful. I know basic commands. I get a little nervous during thunderstorms and tend to pace when they come up but if you help me feel safe, I'm sure I can get over that. I had a hot spot on my hip & a painful ear infection, but AGB's Docs got me all fixed up so I'm good to go to my new forever family. Could that be you? If you think I might be a good match for you, submit your adoption application now & be sure to say you want to meet Beautiful Beau.

Tommy
Hi! I'm Tommy, a 7 month old, 31 lbs. boy. I somehow wound up in a shelter and no one ever came to claim me. AGB agreed to take me in and I am so happy about that! I'm a fun and energetic pup just looking for a forever family to give me the love, attention and adventure that I need. Could that be you? If you think so, I can't wait to meet you! Tell AGB you want to meet Tommy Boy today! See you soon!

Sylvan - ADOPTED
7/24/17 - Adoption announcement! Sylvan (now Shy Ann) was found abandoned outside a shelter with nothing but a blanket. She had glaucoma and was blind in one eye. AGB took her to a specialist, had the painful eye removed, and got her settled into a loving foster home. Her forever mom had recently adopted blind and deaf Gideon (now Jazz) from AGB and wanted to give Shy Ann a permanent home. Jazz and Shy Ann loved each other on their first sniff, and their mom reports they are all doing well! Thank you, Rosie, for loving these special needs dogs and thank you, Susie, for being a wonderful foster mom.

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!
