Dogs highlighted in blue are in need of a foster family

Jazz
Hi there, it’s Jazz here. I’m a 10-year-old lady of 63 pounds who needs to find a new home. My former mom was on disability and was unable to continue with my medical needs. The vet removed part of my intestines seven years ago, so I have to take several medications and stay on a special diet to assure I don’t have stomach problems. My mom wrote down all the things that I need to do or not do, to make

Zeeva
Greetings from Zeeva, a 3-year-old AKC registered young lady, looking for a new home. At 77 pounds, I’m a bit on the plump side, so it would be nice to find an active owner who would help me slim down. My mom was very reluctant to give me up, but she had to, because she is going to get a hip replacement and will have to spend 12- 18 weeks in New York recovering. There was no one to love or take care

Daisy
Felicitous greetings to all! I’m Daisy, just like the flower. I’m an 8-year-old lady of 55 pounds, all house trained and ready for a new home. At my former home, the kids were in charge of taking care of me, a chore they didn’t perform very well, and my owner has placed me for adoption here. So I’m smiling bravely for my photos, in hopes a sympathetic person will see that I’d be a good bet for a forever

Brennan
Hi folks, I’m Brennan, a 49 pound dude from Louisiana. I was in the Vermillion Parish shelter and they had me scheduled for something called euthanasia the next day. It must of been something kinda bad, like a carton of milk expiring, because the next thing I knew, a nice human called Martha with J & L Golden Rescue had me snatched outta there and on the way to Birmingham! There was a lovely lady Golden

Chipper
Hi there from Chipper. Everything my sister, Cookie, said is true. I am a 13 week old male pup and weigh 14 pounds. I am pretty darned handsome, don’t you think? We were turned into the Athens shelter, but a nice man from AGB picked us up really fast, so we were there almost no time at all. He thought we were great travelers on the trip to Birmingham and it was fun to ride and see the sights. Now

Cookie
Hi there from Cookie. I am a 13 week old female pup and weigh 14 pounds. I look pretty darn cute and cuddly, don’t you think? I was turned over to the Athens shelter with my brother Chipper. A nice man from AGB was able to get us out really fast, so we were there just a couple hours. He thought we were great travelers on the trip to Birmingham and it was fun to ride and see the sights. We each want

Atlas
Hey my name is Atlas and I am 12 weeks old. Just like my sister Ares and my brother Joe I am part Golden and part Great Pyrenees. AGB has been an Angel to us and brought us to a safer place. As you can see I am keeping my puppy strength up and am saying my doggie prayers that you will pick me. I am just as cute and cuddly as my sister Ares and my brother Joe. I am ready to learn all my doggie manners

Joe - ADOPTED
My name is Joe and I am 12 weeks old. Just like my sister Ares and my brother Atlas, I am part Golden and part Great Pyrenees. As you can see from my picture I like to initiate a lot of play! AGB came to get me because they wanted to make sure that I went to a good home. Like the story explains for my sister Ares, life didn’t start out the greatest for me. I am ready to start my new puppy life with

More

Ares
Hey everyone my name is Ares and I am as sweet as can be. Like my brother Atlas and Joe, I am 12 weeks old. Our dad was a Great Pyrenees, so we have the heritage to be really smart and sociable companions. I am totally adorable and cuddly. Can you believe anybody would give us up? A really nice foster mom for the Athens shelter saw a post about us on Facebook. She needed a puppy fix, and when she

Dottie - ADOPTION PENDING
How do you do, I’m Dottie. I’m an 18-month old young lady, weighing 48 pounds, so I’m a petite sweetie. My former owner was admitted to a VA home, and a family member asked the Talladega shelter to come and get me. So I’m really happy that AGB is helping me find a forever home. I’m a bit timid right now, but I don’t mind if you pick me up, so if you give me a little encouragement, I’ll probably be

Sambo II - DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Hello there people, from Sambo II. I’m a 6-7 year old, 60 pound dude, and a handsome one, if I do say so myself. I’ve been a bit of a wanderer for a while, and now I’m looking to settle down. My family moved and somehow we got separated from each other. I was picked up by Mountain Brook animal control and stayed with them until a neighbor in charge of finding me a home came and got me. They posted

Molly III - ADOPTION PENDING
Good day to everybody! I’m Molly III, a six-year-old female in search of a new family. My former owners gave me up in a recent move. I’m house trained and know commands such as sit, stay, come and off. I have lots of fun playing with kids and with other dogs. At 117 pounds, I could stand to lose about 25 pounds, but I like to walk at a good pace and swim, so I’m sure those pounds would melt right off

More

Felicia - DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Hello, hello, hello from Felicia! I’m a 3- 4 year old lady, who was picked up by Birmingham-Jefferson Animal Control, and I’m so excited that I might soon have a new home! Do you want a new furry friend? I hope you want a close furry friend, because I really would love to sit in your lap and let you scratch my ears. That would feel so good to have somebody care for me like that. My new doctor is fixing

More

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

More

Tripper - ADOPTED
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

More

Lilly - ADOPTED
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

More

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

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 - ADOPTED
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 - ADOPTED
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

More

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

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
