Kaboom//Boomer - ADOPTED
Jun 2, 2019 - As usual, our beautiful puppies are here today and gone tomorrow! Kaboom came in at three months of age with mom Bootsie and is just as laid-back as she is, cute as a button, and promising to be a great pet. He has gone to the Lone Star State and they are already thrilled and in love with him. He hit the state with a bang and after the ten hour drive (which he handled like a pro) he was ready to explore the yard and play a bit before a good snooze. Now known as Boomer, we cannot wait to see how big he might grow and how much fun they will have with him. Lots of kisses to that little face we can't resist Boomer *********************************************** Hello, world! My name is Kaboom. I think I got my name when folks first saw me and said "You make my heart go KABOOM!!" I think they meant kaboom as in "WOW" but then again, maybe they thought I was dynamite! As you can see, I'm a 3 month old little Golden boy. I'm a puppy and all that that implies. I need to learn everything! I need vaccinations and boosters and training and good food and especially loving. I came to AGB with my Momma, Bootsie, and we both have skin problems and I have a couple of hot spots so they told me there's some medicated baths in my future. Well, okay, maybe if there are enough treats. I weigh 23 pounds and I'm ridiculously cute. AGB is going to find me a very nice family so I can grow up big and strong and learn lots of things that will make me a terrific dog. I'm a special boy so they'll be finding me a special home. So I hope when I meet them, my heart will go "KABOOM".

Bootsie - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED! THANK YOU! You might think that being named Bootsie would mean a romping, stomping good time girl but it doesn't. Bootsie, which is my new name, means "Beautiful One". My owner dropped me and one of my puppies - just one - at a shelter. My former owners didn't even give the shelter my name and they sure didn't take care of me either. I'm heart worm positive, I need to be spayed, and I have a skin infection. My white blood count is high and I needed to be de-wormed. A bit of a sad sight when AGB picked me up from the shelter, but all fixable with some medical care. I've been told I'll be a "beautiful" girl in no time at all. I'm 3 years old and I weigh 66 pounds. The kind fellow that drove me to Birmingham said I was very, very sweet and I tried to ride in his lap the whole way. So, besides a sweet demeanor, I am a very pretty girl with soulful brown eyes, nice white teeth, and a very distinct presence. I just need to get better from the heart worms and get my fur back in shape so AGB can find me a happy and loving home. I might be your "beautiful one"! And then I might romp and stomp my way into your heart! Puppy Kisses, Bootsie

Cupcake
Would you like a treat? Something sweet and adorable? How about a cupcake?! Hello there, my name is Cupcake, and I've got a white sugar face that looks like vanilla icing on a cupcake. I'm 9 years old and I weigh 74 pounds. I am a very loving girl who's just a perfect Golden companion. I find myself needing a new home because of a ornery ole Chihuahua who kept on attacking me. I like other dogs very much so I guess that pup was just jealous of me. My owner passed away and I've stayed at a couple of homes but now I think I need a new home of my own with somebody who'll love me to bits. I'm kind of a low activity and low maintenance gal. I love people, car rides and laying at your feet. I walk well on a leash and I know "sit", "come", "off" and "down" commands. I am house trained! I'm vaccinated and microchipped but I do need to be spayed. I hope you think I'm a cute little cupcake girl. I do have shiny golden fur. I will be so happy to go to my very own new home. I hope you think that my new home is your place.

Levi - ADOPTED
Jun 5, 2019 - Senior boy Levi, turned in to a shelter because his owner no longer had time for him, is living the good life with adopters of two other AGB orphans. One has since passed to the Rainbow Bridge, and when Mom saw Levi's face on-line she knew it was time to adopt again even though Dad was a little hesitant. But after the first meet where Levi climbed right up in Dad's lap, the deal was sealed pending Polly's opinion. She said "yes" when they met and the two are happily napping together while Levi recovers from Heart Worm treatment. He is looking forward to finally getting to chase a ball and that handsome face has won over everyone he meets. Rest easy Levi, good times are coming soon. *********************************************** Hold onto your hats, folks, there's a new pup in town (Birmingham)! Hello, everybody, my name is Levi and they're saying I'm a senior boy. I don't look like it and I don't act like it - a big, good-looking guy like me is in his prime. No white face either; just a distinctive white tuft of hair on my chest. I have a curly coat of reddish fur that the ladies love to run their fingers through and a grin that will steal your heart. Someone called me "a lump of love"! I am in a bit of a predicament. My former owner took me to a shelter and said he had no time for me. Well, I guess he didn't, because I am heart worm positive, I need to be neutered and microchipped, and I had to get all my vaccinations. But, thank goodness, AGB came and got me right away and promised to find me a new home with somebody that WILL have time for me and take care of me. Sounds great! I weigh 69 pounds, have a typical golden personality, and I'm just real comfortable getting comfortable with you. I'm a little afraid of storms but lots of us Goldens are. I'm ready to get this medical stuff done and hit the road with you! I could be your new pup in 'your' town.

Hosea/Buddy - ADOPTED
Jun 2, 2019 - Hosea is now the fifth senior dog Susie and Lee have adopted through AGB to live out his life in the best way possible. Four of those dogs have since passed on but they still have sweet Holly. They didn't plan on adopting Hosea but Diva Holly fell in love with him and begged mom to let Hosea stay with them. He has been "Buddy" since he walked in the door and is perfect according to Susie although Buddy is still going through heart worm treatment. She says he has been "at home" since the day he arrived; even the Bug man said he was at home! Buddy is a special boy and we are so grateful he now has a warm loving family for as long as he lives. Buddy has that inviting smile that everyone adores and we hope he has many years with his sweetheart Holly to kiss and snuggle on! See ya soon Buddy! ********************************************* UPDATE 5/8/19: My surgery is now done. Wonderful news! The masses they removed were benign. I'm recovering nicely and my heart worm treatment has begun. I am one lucky and happy boy! ********************************************* Bless my stars! Here I am. My name is Hosea which actually means "salvation or help". And I have been helped and saved by AGB and I think myself a lucky boy! I'm 10 years old and I weigh 74 pounds. The last thing I can remember clearly is that I was wandering on my own in Tuscaloosa and got brought in as a stray. I hope my owner didn't abandon me; that would break my heart. I have quite a few medical concerns. So if any pup needed help or salvation, I surely do! I haven't been cared for properly for a while; I'm heart worm positive, I wasn't microchipped, I wasn't neutered, and I sure need some love now! I have some masses and I'm scheduled for surgery very soon. Everybody who has met me thinks I'm a wonderful Golden boy with an amazing disposition; a sweetheart. I love everybody except maybe cats. I have a sweet spirit. I'm not a young pup but I hope somebody will love me and help me have a wonderful 'rest of my life'. AGB and my vets think I deserve that. I hope you'll help me. Salvation means "deliverance or preservation from harm" and that's what this second chance means to me.

Charlie VI - ADOPTED
Jun 1, 2019 - There can't be a better way to start the month of June than by announcing Charlie's adoption! This boy has had hard times for the last year but only good times are in Charlie's future now. He was hit by a car last summer and had his back leg amputated, was adopted and then came back to AGB due to changing family circumstances. Because of his accident, Charlie developed an extreme fear of vehicles and howled anytime he was in a car. He also barked and lunged at other dogs and some people making him a difficult case to adopt. Erin with Three Dimensional Dog was brought in for an evaluation, deemed him A-okay, and felt he just needing training and guidance. Miraculously at the same time his Angel Adopter came along. After some training sessions and trial runs, Charlie was officially an orphan no longer. Mom reports "Charlie is adjusting nicely and every day is making improvements!! He has made many friends within my apartment complex and everyone always comments on "how cute" he is. Charlie loves to sit in my lap for a fanny scratch or a belly rub every morning. He enjoys our walks around downtown. He also is riding in the car without barking! My little city dog!" Their love is mutual and it's heartwarming that this young woman took on a huge challenge and is conquering it. ********************************************* Hello, folks! I'm Charlie VI and I'm an AGB orphan. I'm four years old and weigh 38 pounds. I'm vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and heart worm negative. Spring is here and the weather in Alabama is wonderful. I'm cherishing a dream that this Spring I'll be outside sitting with my new parent(s) enjoying the sunshine with them. Right now, I waiting for my new family to make an appearance and I'm getting anxious. Although they treat me wonderful, I'm in boarding. I'm worried that folks might be bypassing me because I'm a tripod. That doesn't stop me one bit! I'm as mobile as the next pup and I deserve a happy home as well as my four legged friends. I'm very handsome, energetic, and smart. I'd love to go "home"! I’d really love to find a pup parent or a couple (no kids, please) that would cherish me as an only pup and spend the time training me that others haven't had the time to do. Would you please contact AGB and ask about me, Charlie VI, or fill out an AGB application? I'd be ever so grateful. Senior rate could apply. Don't you think it's time for 'Good Time Charlie' to have a good time?
