Dogs highlighted in blue are in need of a foster family

Lola III
Hello, I’m Lola. I’m 1-2 years old & I weigh 37 lbs. I came from a breeder who gave me to a friend who does rescue work & contacted AGB. I’m so grateful to AGB for taking me in & helping me with some painful ear issues, including an ear laceration, ear infections & a perforated ear drum. I’m feeling so much better! I’m learning how to be an inside dog now. I like playing with other dogs, & though I’m still a little afraid, I want desperately to be loved. I am smart & learn quickly, so if you will take the time to teach me what I need to know, I’m sure I can make you proud. If you want to welcome a loving little lady to your family, I hope you will ask to meet me, Lola.

Minnie
My name is Minnie & I’m a 10 month old little girl. I was a stray until a nice lady found me & took me to the doggy doctor she works for & made sure I was healthy & got the care I needed. She took care of me for about a month but knew she couldn’t keep me, so she reached out to AGB for help finding my forever home. I’m good with kids & dogs & I love to cuddle & give kisses. Wouldn’t you like to have someone in your life who loves you unconditionally & makes life fun? If so, be sure to ask AGB to meet me, Minnie. I can’t wait to see you!

Butterscotch
Howdy folks, I’m Butterscotch! I’m 4 years old & weigh 50 lbs. I’m told Butterscotch is a kind of candy & that my name fits me because of my color & the fact that I’m such a sweet girl! I came to AGB from a shelter & needed eye surgery & treatment for an ear infection. AGB has taken care of all that for me & now I feel so much better. I’m doing well in my foster home. I was a little shy at first, but I’m settling in nicely now & I have made friends with the kids, dog & even the cats! I love to give kisses and get belly rubs. I mean, who doesn’t right? I also love water so if you have a pool or a lake nearby, I would be a happy girl! If you let me sleep in the bed with you & gave me some tasty treats, I would be super, duper happy! I’m doing well with my housetraining and socializing. I would be best suited for a family with a traditional, 6 foot fence instead of a shorter chain length or invisible fence, because fences help me to feel safe & still be able to explore a little. As you can tell, I’m pretty much the total package of brains, beauty & love! Now all I need is to claim my forever family. Could it be you? If you think so, put in an adoption application & ask to meet beautiful Butterscotch.

Hollis - DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND
Hi everybody out there! I’m Hollis and I’m 1 year old and I weigh just 38 pounds. The reason I’m so small is I have been severely neglected. Some young ladies found me tied to a porch with no food or water. They got some for me and after visiting me and talking to my owner several times, finally talked her into letting them buy me. They knew when they rescued me, they couldn’t keep me but they had to save my life! AGB received a message about me and got me quickly and took me to a doctor. I was given shots and lots of tests. One test said I have heartworms, which could have killed me if starvation didn’t. My AGB friends said I am not to worry. They will get me well and find a family just for me! I am so happy at the thought of that and I can’t stop wagging my tail. So I am going to work on getting well and you work on filling out that adoption application, will ya’? Don’t forget to tell them you want to meet me, Hollis, OK? I can’t wait to meet you! PS… AGB has set up a fund to help with my doctor bills. Any amount you could give would really make me happy. Thanks!

Freddie - DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND
My name is Freddie and I’m about 9 years old and I weigh 33lbs. Recently my owners abandoned me and I became what is called stray. I was very scared and didn’t know what I did wrong. I promise, I am a good boy! Finally, someone took me in and brought me to a doctor who found my microchip. But when my owners were contacted they said they didn’t want me anymore. AGB was contacted and luckily for me, they DID want me! They found some fatty tumors that needed to be removed and are taking care of some problem teeth I had. They are also helping to get my coat back into shape as I had a lot of mats. I am feeling better already and hopeful that a kind, loving person is out there looking for a dog just like me! I’m sweet and loving and I like car rides. If you’re looking for a boy to ride through life with I hope you will come meet me soon! I’m ready and waiting and I know we’ll have a great life together. Your friend, Freddie. PS… If you have a few dollars you can spare to help AGB pay my medical bills it would sure help me out a lot! Thanks.

Skippy - DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND
I’m Skippy, an 8 year old lady weighing 55 lbs. My owner passed away this summer and my world has been turned upside down. I was just left out on my own to wander. I was very scared and stayed close to my old home, but I was too afraid to come to anyone. One day some people caught me and took me to a place called a shelter. I really got scared then so the shelter workers called AGB to come get me. AGB found I have something called heartworms and they promise to give me the medicine I need to get well. What I really need is to find a forever family. I am a little shy at first, but I warm up very quickly. I am sweet and gentle and want nothing more than to be loved and to give love and loyalty in return. Could you be the one for me? If you think so, please let AGB know you want to meet me, Skippy. PS… If you can make a donation to help pay for my medicine I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

Chance - DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND
Hello, I’m Chance, a 3-4 year old, 50 lb., Golden boy. I was very sick when I came to AGB, in fact I was found collapsed on the side of the road with another dog. We were very lucky that a nice lady found us & contacted AGB who took us in. I was severely dehydrated & had infections in my eyes & ears. AGB also found I had a large tumor on my kidney & I had to have surgery to remove it. I'm still being treated for cancer. I'm don't really feel bad & I'm a happy, playful boy, but I know I may not get to live as long as most dogs do. But I’m sweet & friendly & ready to live my life to the fullest. I’m housetrained & know some basic commands. What I really need is to find a family with a tender heart who is willing to love a special needs boy. Could that be you? If so, I will repay you with lots of kisses and cuddles. I hope I get to meet you soon. Your friend, Chance. PS…AGB has set up a fund to help with my medical bills. Anything you can give would be appreciated. Thank you, Chance.

I’m Morgan, a sweet 2 year old girl. I was brought to a shelter and spayed, but then put back out on the street. Finally, a volunteer took me in and got me to a shelter where I was selected to come to America. I am very excited to meet all the wonderful people here who are giving me a second chance at life. I am loving my foster family! They have lots of other dogs for me to play with and we are having so much fun.

Tucker - ADOPTION PENDING MEDICAL RELEASE
Hello friends, I’m Tucker, a 3 year old, 64 pound boy. I somehow wound up in a shelter and was feeling pretty lonely until AGB took me in. I’m well behaved in cars and I am loving and gentle. Whoever had me before did not give me the medicine I needed and those nasty old mosquitos got to me! Now I have these things called heartworms, but I never lost my friendly smile or my wagging tail. My friends at AGB said they are going to get me well and find my forever family. I am really happy to hear that because I love people and can’t wait to be in a comfy, loving home. If you want to add a handsome, red head to your family, please apply to adopt on AGB’s website and ask to get together with me, Tucker. PS…AGB has set up a special fund for my medical care and I would really appreciate any amount you can give to help with my vet bills. Thanks!

Mags - ADOPTED
9/26/16 - Mags, also called Maggie, has been adopted and you can tell from the great smile her face she is very happy with her new digs! Maggie came to AGB from a family that loved her very much, but she was jealous of the new baby in the household. Her new family loves her already just as much and report that she has a big personality to match that smile. Thank you Wayne for fostering her as she was stressing out at the kennel.  Keep having fun pretty girl!

Sabrina
Hello there. My name is Sabrina and I’m an 8 year old, 37 pound little lady. I was kept outdoors at my previous home and had figured out how to get out. My family thought that was dangerous and didn’t want me to get hurt, so they asked AGB to help me find a new family to take care of me. I had some surgery recently to remove a growth on my skin and my teeth got a good cleaning. I’m feeling better now and eager to find my forever home. I am a sweet and gentle girl. I can be a little timid when we first meet, but it doesn’t take me long to warm up and want to cuddle with you. I like to go for walks and I am smart and eager to please. Do you think I could be the perfect girl for you? If so, I hope you will tell my AGB friends you want to meet me, Sabrina.

Charley IV
Hi, I’m Charley! I’m 4 years old and weigh 64 lbs. I’m a sweet boy who likes people, playing, walks and car rides. I’m friendly towards most dogs and a fairly easy going dog. I don’t like fireworks or cats. (Well, I like to chase cats, but I’m told that’s not nice.) I’m house trained and know how to sit on command. I’m healthy and ready to find my forever family. Could it be you? If you are looking to bring a furry best friend into your life, I hope you will submit an adoption application to AGB. Make sure you tell them you want to meet me, Charley. I can’t wait to meet you!

Garth - ADOPTED
9/26/16 - Garth will never lack for care since he has met his match with a young Veterinary school student.  Their personalities seemed to mesh even with pictures before the meet happened, and sure enough it was a good fit immediately.  Garth is learning to go on a daily jog, and when new dad was asked if he was going to keep the name he replied "Of course I call him Garth!  I also call him goober because he is one!"  We look forward to many fun reports from these two.  Thank you Kathy for the foster and getting him out of his shell.

Sadie Mae - ORPHAN IN TRAINING
Hello everyone, my name is Sadie Mae. I’m about a year and a half old and as you can see, I’m a pretty girl. I would probably be best suited in a family with older kids or no kids and no cats. I love to play with other dogs and to go for walks or runs and to play fun games like ball or Frisbee. AGB found I have a few masses on my skin that need to be removed and they are taking care of that for me. AGB is giving me some extra training right now to help me learn how to be the best girl I can be! I will be back soon and I look forward to finding my forever family. Could it be you? If you think so, go ahead and fill out an adoption application on the AGB website and be sure to tell them you want to meet, Sadie Mae. I just know we will have a great time together. See you soon! PS...If you could make a donation to help with my medical and training bills, it would sure make my tail wag! Thank you!

Nikko - ADOPTION PENDING
Hey friends, Nikko here. I’m a 1 year old, 38 pound guy. I got lost and some nice folks took me in. They kept me for months and tried to find who I belonged to, but never could find them. I got along great with their kids and small dogs so they knew I would make some lucky family very happy. They contacted AGB and told them what a sweet and friendly guy I am. So AGB has taken me in and they are working hard to help me find my perfect forever family. If you are interested in meeting me, just submit an application and ask to see Nikko. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Adele
Hello, it's me. I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet. My name is Adele (like the singer - I used the lyrics from her song “Hello” in my greeting). I’m an older gal, probably 9-10 years old, but I am fun and friendly. I weigh 52 pounds. I was picked up in North Alabama as a stray and sent to a shelter. I found the shelter to be a noisy, scary place even though the people there were kind to me. They contacted AGB for help. AGB got me to a doctor who treated some wounds on my legs and had to pull a tooth that was bothering me. I am feeling much better now that I am in my foster home. I am a calm, well behaved girl and everyone who has met me tells me I’m very sweet. If you are looking for a sweetheart to call your own, I hope you will submit an adoption application and tell AGB you want to meet me, Adele. PS...I am available for the seniors to seniors program which means my adoption fee will be waived for adopters 65 and older.
