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

Scotty - DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Hello there. My name is Scotty and I am about 3 years old and weigh 66 lbs. I got lost and a family found me. They took care of me and tried to find my owners but they couldn’t. While I was with them I got hit by a car. I also got attacked by their German Shepherd. I tried to make friends with him, but I guess he wanted to be the only dog. So AGB came and got me and got me the surgery I needed to fix

Ernie - ADOPTION PENDING
Greetings good folks! Ernie here, at your service. I’m 56 pounds and about 4 years old. I have just come back to AGB due to the fact that my adoptive family has discovered I have bad separation anxiety. They could not seem to do anything to help calm me down. They have brought me back to AGB because they feel like a four legged brother or sister might help my anxiety tremendously. They live in a

Sharlie - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi Everyone. My name is Sharlie. I am one year old and I weigh only 28 pounds. I was a stray that AGB got from a shelter in Talladega. Although I have not lived a long life, I don’t mind telling you it has not been an easy one. People have not always been kind to me. Because of this I get frightened easily and sometimes when someone goes to pet me, I can’t help but duck my head. People have abused

Sami - DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Hey there. My name is Sami and I am a four year old little girl weighing in at just 40 pounds. My owner turned me in to a shelter in Decatur and said I kept getting out. I was really thin and they told me I have heartworms. The shelter and AGB got together and planned for AGB to come get me in December. Well, the day before they were going to come get me I surprised everyone and started having puppies.

Bruce
Hi folks. My name is Bruce. I am two years old and weigh 81 pounds. I had a family and thought things were going well. Then one day they brought me to a shelter in North Alabama and they didn’t come back. I waited and waited for them, but they never came. The shelter workers didn’t know why they left me. Finally this nice lady who knew about AGB came and got me. She kept me at her house for almost

Dixie II
Hello out there. I am Dixie, an 8 year old lady of 72 pounds. I am sad to say I was turned in to a shelter by my owners because I had some ear infections and they couldn’t afford to pay for my treatment. It is really hard when your ears are hurting and then your heart is hurting too because you are alone and sad. I really don’t mean to be a bother and the doctors say I don’t have an infection now and

Puff - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi, I’m Puff, an 8-9 week old boy weighing in at 11 pounds. I came in with my friend Panda. AGB found us in a shelter in Etowah County. The shelter didn’t have much information on us, but one thing is for sure, I am a sweet, playful pup who needs a forever family. If you have room in your heart and your home for a fluffy forever friend contact AGB and ask for me, Puff.

Jewel - PERMANENT FOSTER
Hi everyone, it's me, Jewel, again. I wanted to stop by and say thank you all for supporting AGB. You may remember I have cutaneous lymphoma, a form of cancer. Back in January AGB's very own President took me into her family and they are taking very good care of me but I need your help with something. Before coming to my new home I had a lot of medical bills, about $1,825.00 of them. AGB managed to

Harley II - ADOPTION PENDING
Well hi there! My name is Harley. I am 29 pounds and just 6 or 7 months old, but I have already been through a lot! A nice lady found me and my brother living in the yard of a vacant house when we were just little puppies. We were really scared and hungry and so glad she started looking after us. She took care of us for a few months but then some nice AGB ladies came and got us and now we are going

Caleb - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi, I’m Caleb and I am 5 years old. I am in good health, especially considering I have never really lived in a home. I was allowed to roam outside where I was before and never knew the warmth of a house or a bed of my own. The people at AGB have been very kind to me but, I still get a little scared sometimes and have a habit of tucking my tail when I feel this way. They have been teaching me to walk

Maise
Hello, I am Maisie. I am a 7 year old girl of 75 pounds. AGB picked up me and my best friend Nellie from a shelter because they wanted to help us get healthy and find a good home. They have been taking good care of us, but Nellie was very, very sick with something called cancer. She crossed over the Rainbow Bridge recently and I lost her, which has made me very sad. I have had some medical issues
