I’m Vishnu, a 1 year old boy who weighs 60 pounds. My owners said they couldn’t afford to feed me or take me to the Vet anymore so they brought me to a shelter & left me there. I was terrified!

They are taking care of me & I'm doing much better.

Jimmy Buffett - Turkey Dog
Hey! My name is Jimmy Buffett. I’m 3 years old & I’m a happy & friendly boy. I’m told that is why I didn’t do well on the streets of Turkey. Some of the wilder, more aggressive dogs were very rough with me & I got hurt a lot. Finally, I was brought to a shelter & received medical care but to put me back on the streets would be a death sentence for a gentle soul like me. Thankfully, AGB has agreed to

Truman Capote - Turkey Dog
Hello friends. My name is Truman Capote. I’m a 4 year old boy who was living near a school campus in Turkey. A teacher there took a liking to me & was kind enough to feed me regularly. She was afraid that the management would find out about me & send me away so she contacted a local shelter volunteer. Since I was very social, the volunteer thought I would be a good candidate for one of the American

Nat King Cole - Turkey Dog
Good day friends. My name is Nat King Cole & I’m a 3 year old boy who had been living in a Turkish shelter for as long as I can remember. It was very crowded & noisy.

I’m was so ready to come to the United States as I heard there are so many people in

A bus driver took pity on me & took great personal risk to hide me in his bus & travel with me for more than 24 hours to come to Istanbul. You see, they are not allowed

Taylor Hicks - Turkey Dog
Hi there friends. I’m Taylor Hicks, a 1 year old boy from Turkey. I was on the streets, filthy, begging & trying to fend for myself, when a kind volunteer found me & took me to a shelter. Because I am so young, I didn’t have the maturity or the experience to survive the elements or the feral dogs roaming the streets. The shelter volunteers treated me well, but the shelter was so overcrowded.Because

Helen Keller - Turkey Dog
Hi everyone, I’m Helen Keller. I’m a 3 year old girl who has been living in a forest in Turkey for a long time. I survived by being fed by a volunteer who goes to the forest every day to feed the dogs. One day I got very brave & offered my paw & then jumped into the volunteer's car. The volunteer thought I was too fragile to be left in the cold forest, so I was brought to a shelter. Once at the shelter

Carl Lewis - Turkey Dog
Hello, my name is Carl Lewis. I’m a 2 year old boy found on a pedestrian street in the center of Istanbul, Turkey. I was in very bad shape when the volunteer found me & brought me to a shelter. I felt that the end was near & I am certain I would not be alive today if that volunteer had not scooped me up. I’m a sweet natured boy & the volunteers felt I wouldn't do well if I had to stay in the overcrowded

Willie Mays - Turkey Dog
Hello! Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Willie Mays, a 2 year old Golden boy found roaming the streets in Istanbul, Turkey. It seems like I had been out there a long time. I had to beg for food & try to protect myself from the more aggressive dogs. Not too long ago I was picked up by a volunteer who realized I would probably not last much longer on the streets. Since I have a sweet nature, they found

Rosa Parks - Turkey Dog
Greetings everyone, my name is Rosa Parks. I’m a 3 year old girl from Kastamonu, Turkey, a city near the Black Sea. I was brought to a shelter after being out on my own for quite a while & I was so relieved because I thought I would finally be safe. However, the shelter spayed me so I could not have any more puppies but then they put me back out on the street. I was so scared. I kept hanging around

Octavia Spencer - Turkey Dog
Hi there everyone! My name is Octavia Spencer & I’m a 5-6 year old girl from the country of Turkey. For the last 3 years I have been living on the streets of a small village. I’m fortunate that although no one in the village took me in, people would often feed me when I would beg & this helped me to get socialized. Because of this, the volunteers in Turkey thought I would be a good dog to recommend

Red II
Hey y’all, I’m Red. I’m 8 years old and weigh 64 of those pound things. I’m a sweet girl and I love people, dogs and cats. My owner turned me in to a shelter because I kept trying to “play” with the neighbor’s turkeys. I don’t really think it was my fault that those turkeys didn’t want to play with me. I think the turkeys should have been taken to the shelter! Anyway, I’m a mellow girl and AGB’s vet

Hi there! My name is Labella & I’m a 4-5 month old, 26 lb. little girl. I was lost & all alone in the world when I wandered up to a house looking for help. The nice family took me in & tried to find my owners. They couldn’t find them though, so after about a week they took me to a shelter.

Nala
Hello friends, Nala here. I’m a 2 & 1/2 year old girl that AGB got from a shelter that needed help finding a good home for me. I’m healthy & happy! I walk fairly well on a leash & got along good with the other dogs at the shelter. I’m not sure how I would do with cats, but I know I like to chase chickens! I don’t like anyone messing with my tail & I could use a little help learning not to jump up

Hi everyone! My name is Seven, just like the number, & I’m pleased to meet you. I’m a 57 lb., 8 year old girl. Last summer I was lost, hungry & sick when a very nice lady took me in & nursed me back to health. I thank my lucky stars for that lady! She really wanted to keep me, but she found that I’m a little bit of an escape artist & she was so afraid I would get out & get hurt in the busy street

Ginger II
Hello, I’m Ginger. I’m an 11 year old lady who is spayed, vaccinated & micro chipped. My owners passed away recently unexpectedly & AGB agreed to take me in, which was very kind of them. You see, I have some special needs. Back in 2009 my left rear leg was amputated so now I get around on just 3 legs. I’m a little weak & have some trouble supporting myself to walk or stand. The folks here are walking

I was still so shocked and sad when I got dealt another blow. A family member took me to a shelter and left me there! Needless to say I was beside myself with worry and so scared! Luckily, the shelter

Sven
Hello friends, I’m Sven. I’m a 4 month old, 20 lb. little boy. I was found as a stray and I was very scared and shy at first. I was also starving! I was so skinny you could see my ribs. Luckily, the family who found me was very loving and patient with me. After having some food, a bath and lots of loving, I started warming up to people pretty quickly. AGB treated me for some whipworms and made sure
