Ruby IV
Hey there friends! I’m Ruby IV, a 9 month old, 36 pound little girl in need of a new home. When I was just a little pup some folks were giving me and my brothers and sisters away at a tractor supply store and this teenaged girl really, really wanted me. She convinced her family to let her take me home and I have been living with them on their farm for the last 6 months. Unfortunately the girl has

Violet - DONATE MEDICAL FUND
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. Obviously, my people couldn’t keep me anymore, but they cared enough about me to make sure I would be found and taken care of. That shelter had so many animals to care for that

Ty
Hello everyone, allow me to introduce myself. I’m Ty and I’m 3 years old and weigh 50 lbs. I was picked up by animal control in North Alabama and surprisingly, never claimed. I don’t mind telling you, I was a little shocked by that. I mean, have you seen my picture? I have been told I am quite handsome and exceedingly sweet. Anyway, not one to let anything get me down, I got a little excited when

Star
Hey there friends, I’m Star! I’m approximately 11 months old and I weigh 47 lbs. I was picked up by animal control in North Alabama and no one ever came to claim me. I was pretty bummed about that until I was told I was going to a place called AGB that would make sure I found my forever family. That sounded pretty good to me, so I was ready to get in the car and ride. Speaking of riding, I did really

Ryder II
Hello everyone my name is Ryder II and I am a 2 year old boy. I weigh 55 pounds and I am fully vetted and healthy. Recently my life took a turn due to unforeseen circumstances which meant my most favorite person in the world had to give me up. Sometimes things just happen! So, needless to say this has been a major change in my life, plus I have spent time in a shelter before. I loved my person a whole

Dusty
Hi, I’m Dusty a 2 year old, 42 pound, healthy boy. My family brought me to AGB because I didn’t get along with their 13 year old Jack Russell Terrier. My family did animal rescue work and because of this there were always a lot of smaller dogs and puppies in the house. I found this to be a little overwhelming and stressful. I love kids and in fact I used to sleep with a 9 year boy. Cats don’t bother

Dixie III
Hey there, I’m Dixie III. I’m a 3 year old girl and I weigh 57 pounds. My owner contacted AGB because she takes in a lot of stray dogs and I had to be tied out back so I wouldn’t get into the road. She felt this was unfair and wanted a better life for me. I get along well with other dogs and I love kids. I ride nicely in the car. I haven’t quite gotten the hang of walking on a leash yet, but it you

Mimi - DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Hello there, I’m Mimi, a 3 year old, 39 pound girl. My owner turned me in to a shelter because she said she had too many dogs to care for. I guess that’s why she didn’t give me the medicine I needed to keep me from getting those awful heartworms because I have them now. The shelter called AGB because they knew it would take a lot of money to get me the treatment I need to make me well and they also

Jenga - ADOPTED
Hello there friends. I’m Jenga, a 7 year old Golden lady weighing 48 pounds. I was at a shelter but it was getting very full so the shelter folks called AGB and asked if they would be ever so kind as to take me and find me a home. Of course the sweet people at AGB said they would because they have very soft hearts when it comes to Goldens. I am in good health although one of my front legs has been

Marshall
Howdy there everybody! I’m Marshall, a 2 years old, 62 pound blond boy who AGB got from a shelter in North Alabama. I came to AGB neutered, micro-chipped and in good health. I had a problem getting out where I was living. Back in January the local animal control fellas picked me up and called my family to come get me, which they did. This last time I got out my family was called again but they said

Toby V
Hello everyone, Toby V here. I am a shy little boy and I am only 9 months old and weigh just 37 pounds. I was surrendered to a shelter in North Alabama. The family I was with left me outside to roam the property all the time, so I am afraid I haven’t been taught anything and I have had little socialization with other animals. That being said, I am a sweet natured boy, just a little skittish. I am

Ritz - DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Hi there, I’m Ritz, a 2 year old Golden-Lab boy. I weigh 69 pounds and I am so, so happy to be with the folks at AGB! I was found as a stray in East Alabama and spent 2 whole months in a kennel at a Vet clinic just waiting for someone to claim or adopt me. Well, that didn’t happen and the kennel was getting really full. Luckily that Veterinarian met some nice AGB volunteers at this event called Bark

Quint - ADOPTION PENDING
Good day my friends. I’m Quint, a 4 year old, 60 pound Golden guy who’s just crazy about belly rubs, face rubs and just a lot of petting in general. I got a little lost up in North Alabama somewhere and a nice lady found me and took me in. She was a real sweetheart of a girl, feeding me, loving on me and working really hard to find my family. She put up flyers, contacted the local shelter, checked

Lhotse
Hi there! I am Lhotse, a 1 year old AKC registered Golden girl weighing in at 42 pounds. My family brought me to AGB because they work a lot and I was spending way too much time alone. I was outside most of the day and I am afraid I got a little bored and started chewing and digging quite a bit. I have been well taken care of. I am spayed and up to date on all my shots. The only little medical thing

Jack II - ADOPTED
Hello folks, my name is Jack. I am a 7 year old fella weighing in at 75 pounds. I am in good health except for a nasty old yeast infection in my ears and a little dermatitis on my paws, but my friends at AGB say that is not a problem. They will have me fixed up in no time at all. My family brought me to AGB because we lived on a farm and I had a little problem with the chickens. The problem was I

Homer & Molly VI
Good day AGB friends. My name is Homer and I am here with my sister, Molly VI (I guess Molly is a popular name for her to be the 6th one AGB had!) Our owners brought us to AGB as they recently started new jobs that take up most of their time and they have a toddler who may be allergic to our dander. It was very sad for all of us, but AGB promised them they would work very hard to find a great home

Trixie
Hi there everyone! I’m Trixie. I am 3 years old and 56 pounds. I got lost and was brought to a shelter. AGB agreed to take me because the shelter gets so full and no one came to claim me. I know I am the color of midnight, not usually the color of the dogs you see at AGB, but my time was running out at the shelter and the AGB folks are big softies. They couldn’t stand to see anything bad happen to

Pete
Hi Guys, Pete here. I am about 4 years old and I weigh 54 pounds. An AGB volunteer found me in Tuscaloosa and took me to the local shelter because she figured if my owners were looking for me, they would go there. Well, no one came for me so after a while she came back and got me and took me to her friends at AGB. She told me the folks at AGB are absolute experts at finding homes for lost boys like

Queen
Good day everyone. I am Queen. I am 8 years old and 42 pounds and all my medical care is up to date. Somehow I found myself lost and then I was taken to a shelter in Tuscaloosa. I don't mind telling you this was very scary for me and I am still feeling rather frightened. I believe AGB is a good place for me but I still can't get over being a little nervous. Because of this I curled up on the floorboard

Nate
Hi, I’m Nate, a 5 year old, 42 pound boy. Some good Samaritans found me wandering lost and took me in. They tried to locate my owners but were not successful so they contacted AGB. AGB came and got me and took me to a doctor to get me checked out. They found I am in pretty good health and thankfully I don’t have those nasty old heartworms. They say I am a sweet, well behaved boy. If you are looking
