Dogs highlighted in blue are in need of a foster family

Sugar
Hi there, I’m Sugar, a 10 to 12-month-old girl (weighing 35 lbs) who would love to be your BFF (Best Fur Friend) in a forever home. A good Samaritan saw me running down the middle of the road and pulled over to help. I ducked behind an abandoned house, but when I realized they were nice people, I came when they called. After all, I needed some help with my bloody front paws from running on the hot

Tripper
Greetings from Tripper, a gentleman 12 years of age. I hope you can see from my photos that I’m a Golden of distinction, though I do have some limited range of my hips that keep me from climbing stairs at this point. I take joint supplements and it would be nice if I could lose a bit of weight (I currently weigh 89 lbs). My owner surrendered me to see if I could find a home where there are no stairs

Lilly - ADOPTION PENDING
Hey everyone, Lilly here! I’m a six-year-old female weighing in at 58 pounds, and I hope you think that I am a gorgeous looking blonde with beautiful eyes. My former owner tried their best to do the right thing for me, but you see I am really afraid of loud noises (thunder, sirens, fireworks, etc). My family worked during the day, so no one was home when some things would scare me. I was kept outside

Cooper - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi there! I’m one-year-old, blonde-haired Cooper, weighing 62 pounds. I came in with my friend Max, whom I lived with for 6 months. Our owner couldn’t keep us, because of moving into an apartment. I really like to run and play. I do pretty good on a leash considering I am just still learning my doggie obedience. I am getting closer to being fully housetrained and am good with children and other

Bonnee - ADOPTED
Greetings everybody from Bonnee! I’m a 5- 7 year old lady of 63.5 pounds, who is just as sweet as honey. I’m hoping somebody out there wants to get to know me and love me. I got lost and was taken to the Blount County shelter. Now the awesome folks with AGB have picked me up, so somebody can adopt me and take me home. On my way to meet the rest of the nice people with AGB, I got to ride in the front

Sissy
Greetings from Sissy! I’m an eleven-year-old lady, who has been through a bit of a sad time. My 93-year-old human Mom went to that place that people call heaven. We adored each other lots and I’ll admit that she spoiled me a little. Maybe that’s why at 84.5 pounds, I’m a little on the fluffy side and could stand to lose a few pounds. Now I need to find someone who is big-hearted enough to help me learn

More

Bear
Hi there people, from Bear! I was picked up by the Huntsville animal control and everybody was pretty surprised when no one turned up to claim me. Guess they must think I’m cute or something, huh? They estimate that I’m about a year old. At 48.5 pounds, I’m a bit underweight, but I’m sure when I have a chance to fill out a little, I’ll be just as cuddly as a teddy! The folks here think I’m house trained

More

Ace
Hiya everybody! Ace is here and ready to meet you! At nine-months-old and 56 pounds, I still have a lot of pup in me, so if you’re looking for that pep and playful sort of spirit, I can bring it on. I got kinda lost at one point, so somebody picked me up and took me to the shelter in Monroeville. It was a long drive to Birmingham, but it sure was the most fun ever! Wind in my ears, alright now! But

Flint
I am Flint and every bit as cute as I look! I am 18 months old and a handsome little guy at 45 pounds. I wandered up to a home in Mississippi as a puppy. The family I tried to adopt, found me very eager to love everyone in their household, but they had to move and could not keep me. I am lucky AGB is here for me and they have found me a temporary home they call a foster home. My foster family

Dexter - DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Hello from Dexter. I’m an 8 to 9-year-old male looking for a human with a good heart to help me out. Sometimes life can be tough for us four-legged guys, just like it can be for humans. I spent some time, too much time, wandering the roads and not knowing where to go. The days became a blur as I became hungrier and weaker. I don’t know what would have happened to me if a Good Samaritan in Enterprise

Lexie II
Hi there! It's Lexie and I'm hoping to be the Golden girl in your life. I'm ten years old and at 92.4 pounds, a bit of a marshmallow for sure. There were a lot of dogs and cats at my former home, so maybe my owner didn't realize I was eating too much. Anyhow, my owner went on to that place you humans call heaven and I was turned in to the Decatur shelter because there were no relatives to care for

More

Dakota Blue
Greetings all! Dakota Blue at your service. I' a ten-year-old, 56-pound male, who suffered abuse in my puppyhood. I was tied to a tree, starved and hit with sticks and a bat until a compassionate gentleman rescued me and took me into his home. Now I'm feeling as blue as my name, because this lovely man became very ill and recently passed away. My gentleman raised me well and I get along with other

More

Boo & Luci
Hello from Boo and Luci! People here believe we're a pair of Hovawarts, which can look just like Goldens. I'm Boo, weighing in at 70.4 pounds, and I do have that Golden glow. My companion, Luci, is 66.4 pounds and a dark-haired beauty. Our owner could no longer care for us and turned us in to the Huntsville shelter. Those are the minor details, but we think the really important part is that we're both

More

Peaches II
Hello everybody out there! I'm 5-month-old Peaches and I hope you'll think I'm just as sweet as that summertime treat. At 28 pounds I do kind of look like peaches and cream, don't you think? Yummy enough to take home, wouldn’t you agree? Right now I'm looking for my peeps and I don't mean the marshmallow kind. I was picked up by Homewood animal control and nobody ever turned up to claim me, so I need

More

Casper
Hi everyone Casper here. No not the ghost. I am a real live boy. I am 9 months old and weigh 44 pounds, a growing boy. There’s a good chance that I have Great Pyrenees in me, which would explain my big paws. As you can see I am enjoying what maybe my first big boy bone. It is great. My foster mom says I have the prettiest brown eyes and my noise looks like a polar bear. I am about 10 months old and

Barkley & Molly Mae - DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Hello, from a gorgeous Golden pair! I’m 12-year-old Barkley and my 11-year-old girl, Molly Mae, is here with me. We’re each 55- 60 pounds and were heartworm positive. We have gone through our heartworm treatment with flying colors. Barkley takes meds for low thyroid, but otherwise, we’re doing well. We even have our AKC papers to show that we’re truly Golden. Our previous owners were nice enough

Rusty III - ADOPTED
Hi there! I’m Rusty and I’m six-years-young and healthy. They tell me I still act like a pup at times and maybe that’s so, but I guess I just have a lot of energy to go around. I used to have a really nice owner, but he moved to an apartment and couldn’t take me along. It was an emotional parting and I found out I hate “good-byes.” That’s why I’m looking for a “hello” now, so will you be the one to

More

Sonny - ADOPTED
Hello, hello everybody. I’m an 18-month-old male, weighing in at 41 pounds, and my name is Sonny, but my life hasn’t been any too sunny so far. I was found and brought into the Bibb County shelter with a hole in my leg, as well as not having had any food. I am extremely thin due to lack of nutrition. I was rescued right in the nick of time, since I couldn’t walk at that point, and I was getting kind

More

Summer II
Greetings, everyone! I’m a 45-pound, six-year-old girl named Summer; so didn’t I show up at just the right time of year? I was picked up by animal control in Athens after I had been hit by a car, and I was taken to the shelter where I became everybody’s favorite doggie. As you can see from my latest photo, I lost my eye due to my previous owners not getting me proper treatment for Glaucoma. But things

Eddie - DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Hello there. My name is Eddie, and you might call me ready Eddie, because I'm eager and willing to find that forever home. Some days have seemed like a mirage to me, because I was recently a stray out there wandering around with my lonely self. The nice folks who found me have tried posting on Facebook and contacting shelters, but nobody has turned up for me, so I'm available for you to take home and

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You all Rock!! UPDATE MARCH 6TH: This week when my Vet was performing my neutering procedure she found a bullet lodged inside of me. I remember something hurting

More

Little Angel - ADOPTED
UPDATE APRIL 10TH: Little Angel came to us from a shelter and had a grossly "bulging right eye". This was caused by a cataract and glaucoma. She was totally blind in that eye, which can lead to a very painful condition as the pressure in the eye builds. She was also heart worm positive and would surely have been euthanized had AGB not stepped in. Little Angel is now being treated for her heart
