Dogs highlighted in blue are in need of a foster family
Hello, my name is Maisie and I’m a 3 year old, 72 pound girl. I was lost, alone and scared when a very nice lady found me and took me in. She checked me for a microchip, posted flyers, put my picture on Facebook and checked with shelters, but no one claimed me. She said I’m a real sweetheart and she wanted to keep me, but didn’t really have room for me or a big yard for me to play in. So she contacted AGB for help and they agreed to help me find a great family for me. I’m housetrained, sweet, loving and I got along well with the nice lady’s small dog. AGB helped me get rid of some itchy fleas and gave me medicine for my ears that hurt so much because they were infected. Now I’m feeling better and ready to meet people who are looking for a new best friend. If you think we could be BFF’s please let AGB know you want to meet me, Maisie.
Well hello there y’all. My name is Viola & I’m pleased to meet you. I’m a petite, 10 month old little lady who weighs 25 pounds. Somehow I wound up in a shelter but those folks contacted AGB who took me in right away. I’m a loving dog who likes to cuddle & I get along with most anyone, people & dogs alike. I’m still young so I have some learning to do but I'm ready, willing & able to do whatever it takes to be your perfect life-long companion. If you're thinking of adding a pretty little Golden girl to your family, I hope you’ll think about me, Viola. Come see me & I know you won’t want to spend another day without me!
Howdy folks! My name is Lake. I’m a 10 month old, 23 pound little boy who came to AGB from a shelter. I’m a happy, go lucky, sweetheart of a guy. I got along well with other dogs at the shelter. I like to give kisses and to get in your lap. I get kind of excited so if you could help me learn some manners like not to jump up that would be great. If you are looking for a sweet, fun-loving fella to bring into your family I sure would like to meet ya! How about submitting one of those adoption application thingies on the AGB website? Don’t forget to tell them you want to meet that sweet pup named Lake! I’ll be waiting & I hope we get to meet soon.
|Lilly IV - DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND|
Greetings dear friends, my name is Lilly. I’m a 2 year old girl weighing in at 65 lbs. Unfortunately I have these things called heartworms which are very bad for dogs and can cost a lot of money to get rid of. But AGB is already giving me the medicine I need to get well and that makes my tail wag. I love kids and I’m very friendly and playful. I love to swim and I get along ok with cats. If you would like me to be your new best friend, I hope you’ll put an application in with AGB and tell them you want to meet me, Lilly. PS… AGB is collecting donations to help pay for my medicine so I would appreciate any amount you can give. Thank you!
|Cindy - ADOPTION PENDING MEDICAL RELEASE|
Hello there. My name is Cindy & I’m a 2 year old girl who came to AGB from a shelter. If you look in my eyes you will know I have not had an easy life. Some of the AGB volunteers say I have “sad eyes”, but yet I am still loving and willing to trust again. When I came to AGB they noticed I was not putting weight on one of my legs. They had a Veterinarian check me out and found that my elbow joint is dislocated. The good news is it is not fractured, but the bad news is it is a chronic condition and my muscles in that area have atrophied, or weakened. Also, the surgery will cost a lot of money, but AGB says I need it and I should make a full recovery afterward. They told me they have these great supporters they call “angels” who will make sure I get the care I need so I should not worry. I appreciate all the love and care I am getting from AGB. If you want to welcome a sweet, loving little girl into your family and help me find my happily ever after, please let AGB know you want to meet me, Cindy. PS…You can make a donation toward my surgery here on the AGB website. Thank you!
|Dagwood (Bonded to Blondie) -FULLY FUNDED|
Hi, I’m Dagwood. I’m a 5 year old, 71 pound boy. I was found as a stray with another dog, Blondie. We are bonded and need to be adopted together. A smaller rescue took us in but reached out to AGB for help and they agreed to take us in. AGB found that I am heartworm positive and promises to help me get well. The volunteers here say I am gorgeous and they love my beautiful red coat. I am gentle and only take my treats when you lay them down for me. They call me a love bug, whatever that is. If you would like to bring a sweet, loving, gentle Golden pair into your family I hope you will contact AGB and ask to meet us, Dagwood and Blondie. PS…If you would like to help AGB get rid of my nasty old heartworms, you can make a donation for me on their website.
|Blondie (Bonded to Dagwood) - FULLY FUNDED|
Hi, I’m Blondie. I’m an 8 year old, 79 pound girl. I was found as a stray with another dog, Dagwood. We are bonded and need to be adopted together. A smaller rescue took us in but reached out to AGB for help and they agreed to take us in. AGB found that I am heartworm positive and promises to help me get well. They say I am a super sweet baby and starved for affection. I am gentle yet playful, not like a puppy, but like a gal who is enjoying life and soaking up as much as I can get. They say with just a little loving care I will be polished into a bright gem because I’m truly a Golden Girl. If you have room in your heart and home for 2 loving, precious, Goldens, I hope you will ask to meet us, Blondie & Dagwood. PS…If you would like to help AGB get rid of my nasty old heartworms, you can make a donation for me on their website.
|Max V -FULLY FUNDED|
Hi friends! My name is Max. I’m a 3 year old, 45 lb. boy. I ended up in a shelter in East Alabama & they posted on social media that they needed a rescue to take me in. Luckily for me the AGB volunteers are always on social media looking for dogs in need . They saw me & agreed to take me in. The next day a volunteer lady came to get me & drove me all the way to Birmingham. She said I was very sweet. I jumped right in the back of her SUV, gave her kisses & settled down quickly. I‘m a little shy at first, but I warm up quickly. I really rather have petting than toys or treats! AGB is giving me my shots & getting me neutered & they found I have these things called heartworms. That made me sad & a little scared, but they promise to give me the medicine & care I need to get well so I can find my forever family. They have even set up a special fund where people can make donations to help get me well. Just being loved & cared for has made me feel better already! If you want to adopt a sweet, loving, friendly boy, submit your application today & ask to meet me, Max.
Hey, my name is Jagger. I’m a 6-12 month old, 33 pound little boy. I came to AGB with my sister Taffy. Our former owner allowed us to run the streets of our neighborhood, but there were so many cars that one of the ladies nearby was afraid we would get hurt. She asked our owner if she could have us so she could keep us safe and our owner said yes. Then she contacted AGB because although she couldn’t keep us herself, she knew we deserved to be with families who would love and care for us forever. We are sweet and playful and can be adopted to separate homes. So if you’re looking for a happy and energetic little boy to be your best buddy, let AGB know you want to meet me, Jagger.

|Deuce & Sam V - ADOPTED|
5/20/16 - Eight year olds Deuce and Sam lived a happy life on a farm but were surrendered to AGB when their mom moved to town after their dad's death. This kind gentleman saw their picture on AGB's website and was moved by their smiles and their resemblance to his golden he had for many years. He drove to Birmingham and the connection was instant. He reports that they've been to the dog park every day and are all doing great!
|Sassy - ADOPTED|
5/20/16 - Sassy came to AGB thanks to a Good Samaritan who saved her from a life of neglect and very little kindness. This sweet and loving little girl was fostered by a kind soul who gave her all the food, love, and affection a dog could want and brought her out of her shell. The two fell in love and could not stand the thought of being separated. Sassy will never again have to worry about her safety or her next meal. As you can see from their smiles, these two are a happy pair!
|Ruggles - ADOPTION PENDING|
Hi, I’m Ruggles, a 2 year old, 75 pound boy. I’m in good health, neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. Though my family loved me dearly, they made the very hard decision to ask AGB to find a new home for me after I growled at some kids recently. There were kids in my family and I have always been loving toward them, but because there are a lot of other kids in and out of our house regularly, they felt it was best to find a new home for me without kids. Other than my recent issues, I have always been friendly and I love to run and play with other dogs. I like to find socks and stuffed animals to play with. I like to cuddle and I am good at walking on a leash. I like to splash around in creeks. I’m also crate and house trained. If you think you would be a good match for me I hope you’ll submit an adoption application to AGB and ask to meet me, Ruggles.
Hi y’all, Charlie here. I’m a 61 pound, 3 year old boy and I’m feeling very lucky to be here with AGB. You see I was in a shelter in Mississippi and I was told I was going to be put to sleep. Well this nice Veterinarian from North Alabama found out about me and got me out of that shelter. He found a foster family to keep me until he could find a rescue to take me. AGB agreed to take me and they say they will find someone who will love me and take care of me forever. I had some red skin and itchy ears, but AGB took care of that for me and they say I’m in good health. I get along well with big and small dogs and I pretty much ignore cats. I love to play with toys and go for walks and even runs. I am good on a leash and very friendly. I love belly rubs! I’m housetrained, good in the car and I know how to sit, shake and come when called. If you're looking for a great guy like me to be your new best friend, just submit your adoption application to AGB and make sure you tell them you want to meet me, Charlie.
