Oscar - DONATE MEDICAL FUND & Murdock
Hello everyone, my name is Oscar. I am 8 years old and 72 pounds. I came to AGB with my brother Murdock, who is 6 years old and 74 pounds. Our family moved and could not take us with them, so they gave us to AGB because they heard that AGB does a great job of finding homes for boys just like us. We have been together since Murdock was born and we would like to stay together. It’s hard enough to lose

Elise
Hi, I’m Elise. I am a 5-6 year old girl who weighs 63 pounds. I got lost up in Northwest Alabama and was found at a hunting club. I had been in the woods alone for a long time and I was scared, skinny and hungry. I had been eating the corn the hunters left for the deer and I was dirty and full of fleas. One of the hunters noticed me for a few days and I was watching him too. He seemed kind, so when

Hey there y’all, I’m Dancer, a 1 year old healthy girl who weighs about 45 lbs. I was found by some nice folks a few weeks ago wandering the streets in North Alabama.

Good day AGB friends. My name is Riley and I’m an 8 year old girl who weighs 66 lbs. I’ve been well cared for, I’m spayed and fully vetted with all my vaccinations. My owner moved recently and couldn't take me with her so she gave me to her mother. Unfortunately her yard was a little too small for me and she had a very low gate which I could easily get over. She hated to give me up, but she didn’t

Well hi there friends! My name is Peaches and I’m a sweet, loving, 2 year old girl. I spent almost my whole life in a shelter just south of Istanbul until AGB came along and rescued me. I’m friendly and get along well with people and other dogs. I like to go for walks and to play with toys and tennis balls. I don’t like to be crated so it takes a little coaxing to get me to go in but after a few barks

Cotton TD
Hi everyone, I’m Cotton, a 5 year old boy who was shaved and abandoned in a Turkish forest where there wasn’t anything to eat or drink. Thankfully a group of scouts found me and took me to a nearby village where people gave me food and water, which eventually lead to my rescue by AGB. My foster family has been great to me.

Good day everyone, I’m Magic. I am a young girl of only 10 months old, but I have been through a lot in my short life. I was found on a busy highway in Istanbul and was very scared and sick.

I have been getting along really well with the other

Baron TD
Hello AGB friends, I’m Baron, a 3 year old boy from Turkey. When I was just a pup, I was brought to a family in Istanbul and I was to be their most prized possession.

Finally, some people took me to a shelter and then I got the luckiest

Good day everyone. I’m Violet, a 2 year old, 38 lb. girl. A shelter worker came in one morning and found me tied to their gate. I was so glad when I was found because I had been out there all alone and I was very, very scared.
