Ross
Hi everyone! I’m Ross and I’m 1 year old and weigh 45 of those pound things. I was a stray, scared and lonely on the streets. A nice man took pity on me and began to feed me, but I was so shy, I was afraid to come to him. He reached out to a small rescue in his area and they were able to catch me. As soon as they got me they realized I belonged with AGB. So now I’m here with AGB and I’m waiting to be matched with a family who will love me forever so I’ll never be a stray again. If you have been searching for a sweet, handsome, friendly fella to fill your home and heart with love, look no further. I’m the dog for you! What are you waiting for? Fill out the adoption application today and be sure and mention you are interested in meeting me, Ross.

Riker
Hey there friends. My name is Riker: I’m a 3 year old boy and I weigh 52 lbs. Somehow I found myself in this place called a shelter. I don’t mind telling you that really stressed me out! The shelter workers could tell that I was really upset so they asked AGB to help me out and a nice lady came and got me. I’m still a little nervous after all I’ve been through because I’m really not sure what is going to happen next, but everyone here has been very nice to me. I’m a sweet boy and I want so badly to find my forever home. Do you think that could be with you? If so, just fill out an application and let AGB know you want to meet me, Riker. I promise to love and protect you forever.

Coby
Good day friends. My name is Coby and I’m a wise, senior fellow of 10-11 years of age. I’m healthy and up to date on my vaccinations. I have a sweet temperament and I want nothing more than to be with my people. I like children and have lived with a cat whom I got along with very well. I am very fearful of thunderstorms! I really need someone who can comfort me when the thunder rolls in and help me to feel at ease. If you feel you can help me enjoy my Golden years and want to receive my unconditional love in return, I hope you will submit an application to adopt and ask to be matched with me, Coby. PS…I am available for adoption under the Seniors to Seniors program which means my adoption fee will be waived for adopters who are 65 or older.

Garth
Hey y’all, Garth here. I’m a 3 year old, 42 lb. boy who came to AGB from a shelter. Shelter life made me a little nervous, but I warm up quickly and the volunteers here say I’m a sweet, calm boy. I ride well in the car but need a little more work walking on that thing you call a leash. I do better in a harness. I have a fun personality and just want to find a family to call my own. I have a little ear and urinary infection but the AGB doctors are giving me medicine for that and said I’ll be all well and ready for adoption in no time. If you’re looking for a fun, friendly guy to be with you forever, please tell AGB you want to meet me, Garth. I’ll see you soon!

Hi everyone, Stevie here. I’m a 9 week old, 4 lb little boy. I came to AGB from a shelter with my brother Puddy and sister Chi Chi.

Like most pups I like to play, eat and take naps. If you’re looking for a happy little pup to share your life with, let AGB know you want to meet me, Stevie.

Sadie Mae
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 have good house manners and know how to walk nicely on a leash and to stay in place until released. I would probably be best suited in a family with older 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. Are you looking for a fun, sweet active little lady to add to your family? If so, go ahead and fill out an adoption application on the AGB website and be sure to tell them you want to meet sweet Sadie Mae! I just know we will have a great time together. See you soon!

Oliver
Hi, I’m Oliver! I’m 9 months old and 22 lbs. I was a stray and wound up in a shelter until some AGB volunteers came to get me. I’m a healthy boy and just a little shy when I first meet new people. I ride well in the car. (One of the AGB volunteers let me ride in his lap, which I really liked!) I’m sweet and I like to play. I would love to find a family to be mine forever. If you’re looking for a fun and friendly young pup to add to your family just let AGB know you want to get together with me, Oliver.

Zara - DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND
Allow me to introduce myself, I’m Zara, and I’m 7-8 years old. I was found as a stray in north Alabama and ended up in a shelter until AGB took me in. I don’t mind telling you, I have not had the easiest life. I have some hair loss and skin and dental issues, but AGB has been taking care of all that for me. They told me I have these things called heartworms and have started me on the medicine I need to get well. I am so happy to finally be getting the care and affection I need. Everyone here says I am very well behaved and just as sweet as sugar. If you want to make a friend for life I hope you will contact AGB and tell them you are interested in meeting me, Zara. I’ll be counting the days until I see you! PS…If you can make a donation to help with my medical care I would be pleased as punch.

I’m making friends fast. Everyone at the Vet office just loves me. AGB is taking care of a few little medical things like cleaning me up, giving me my shots, spay and micro-chip but I’m ready to meet my forever family. If you think we would be a good match just apply to adopt and make sure your mention you want to meet me, Willa. I’ll be ready & waiting.

Leiya - ADOPTION PENDING
My name is Leiya and I’m 3 years old and weigh 77 pounds. My owner is getting older and she felt she couldn’t give me the care and attention I deserved so she turned to AGB for help. I’m friendly and I like to play. I like dogs, cats and kids. I am house trained and ride well in the car. I’m very smart and learn things easily. I love to be with people and I have lots of love to give. If you’re looking for a furry best friend, I could be just the girl for you.

Nikko
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 7 years old and 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.

Mitch - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi there everybody! I’m Mitch, a 5 year old, 97 pound fella. I wandered up to the home of a nice family a few months ago. They kindly took me in and cared for me while they searched for my owner, but they couldn’t find them. They knew they couldn’t keep me forever so they contacted AGB to help find a new home for me. I know I’m not gold in color, but they think I’m a Golden-Flatcoat retriever mix. I’m a sweet natured boy and love to go for walks. I’m pretty smart and have figured out how to get over a 4 foot fence, so I’ll need a family with a high fence. I make friends very easily. AGB found I had ear infections and something called heartworms. I am getting the medicine now I need to get well. If you want to welcome a tall, dark and handsome fella to your family I hope you’ll ask to meet me, Mitch.

Daisy IV - FULLY FUNDED
Hey there everybody. I’m Daisy. I am 4 years old and weigh 73 lbs. I have always been a healthy girl, but recently I hurt my knee and leg and the doctor said I needed to have surgery. My owners said they couldn’t afford it but I was in pain so they asked the doctor to put me to sleep. My doctor said she couldn’t do that since there is a surgery that will fix my leg, and I'm otherwise healthy, so she took me in. She reached out to AGB and told them my story and asked for their help. Of course the AGB volunteers couldn’t say no. I have been so lucky to have a lot of really good people on my side who want to make sure that I get the care I need to live a normal, pain free, happy, life. So, with no time to waste, they went ahead and fixed my leg. I'll need about 6 weeks to rest up, but then I can do normal activities again. AGB is already looking for my new forever family. I’m a sweet girl and I’ve been a family dog, so I get along well with kids,cats and other dogs. I’m housetrained and very loving. If you like doggie snuggles and kisses, I’m just the girl for you! I hope we get to meet soon so I can show you my new and improved fancy, dancy leg! Your friend, Daisy. PS… My surgery would have cost much more, but the nice Vet who saved my life is sharing the expense with AGB. Thanks to all the Angels who donated to cover my medical bills!

Kit
Hi everyone. My name is Kit. I’m a 1 year old, 42 pound boy. About 6 months ago a kind lady found me abandoned and alone in a field. I was not in great shape to say the least. She brought me home to her family, took care of my immediate medical needs and when they thought I was ready, they contacted AGB to help me find my forever family. I am so thankful for this nice lady and so is AGB! I’m crate trained and I know sit, come and down. I’m somewhat submissive around other dogs, especially those big guys. I’m a little timid at first, but don’t let that fool ya’ because I’m a friendly and playful pup. I am ready to be loved on, play ball, go for long walks and be your best bud. If you want to get to know me, just submit an application and tell AGB you want to meet me, Kit. I’m already dreaming of my forever home.

Lady II - FULLY FUNDED
Hello friends. My name is Lady. I’m a 7 year old, 45 pound girl. I am small in size, but big in personality. In fact I just can't seem to stop smiling or wagging my tail. My owner passed away and AGB agreed to take me in. They treated me for hookworms, fleas, and ticks. I had so many fur mats that I had to be shaved, but my pretty coat will grow out soon. I also learned that I’m heartworm positive and I had a growth on my spleen. AGB gave me the surgery I needed for my spleen issue & I came through it like a champ! So I will be starting my treatment for heartworms soon and then I'll be ready for my forever home. I have been mainly kept outdoors, but I’m a sweet, smart girl and with just a little love and attention I know I can become someone's very best friend. If you would like to welcome a sweet Lady into your home, please ask to meet me.
