I am heartworm negative, vaccinated, neutered and micro chipped. I belonged to a family and lived on a farm, but there was another dog there who didn’t like me for some reason.

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

Tahloulah
Hello, my name is Tahloulah and I am a two year old, 48 pound little lady in need of a new home. Not long ago I was out on the road alone and I was very scared because I was about to have puppies. I was worried about how we would all survive, so I summoned up all the courage I had and wandered up to a home in North Alabama that I had been watching. I felt good people lived there that might want to

Dexter II
Hi y’all, I’m Dexter, a 2 year old, 46 pound guy looking for a new best friend and a place to lay my head. AGB got me from a shelter and told me they are going to help me find a family that is just right for me. They say I am very healthy and I am a sweet, loving boy. I ride well in a crate and I am good on a leash. I admit that there are so many interesting sights and smells outside that sometimes

Okie - ADOPTED
Hi Folks! My name is Okie and I am one year old and 58 pounds. I was found as a stray and AGB was good enough to take me in as I had nowhere else to go, even though I am not a golden colored dog. As best as they can tell I am probably a Golden Retriever – Chesapeake Retriever mix but they say I am 100% lovable. To be a young dog AGB says I am very well behaved. I am house trained and I like to walk

Hello friends, Grace here. I am a 2-4 year old, green eyed girl weighing in at just 47 pounds. I weighed a bit more recently because I had a litter of puppies. Another rescue brought me to AGB to help me find my forever home. My foster mom has been very sweet to me and she says I am joyful, playful and energetic. I love it when you pet me and brush my silky golden fur. I am housetrained but no one

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 - MEDICAL FULLY FUNDED
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

Sharlie - ADOPTED
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

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

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.

Luke - DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Hello friends, Luke here. I came to AGB in December of 2014 after I had been picked up as a stray by a shelter in the Anniston area. I am a 4 year old Golden/Lab mix and I weigh about 72 pounds. I know you are probably wondering why an adorable guy like me has not been adopted yet. Well you see, I was not in the best shape when AGB took me in. I had several cysts on my head they had to remove, a hernia
