Hoss
Howdy folks! My name is Hoss and I’m a healthy 4 year old boy weighing in at 101 lbs. I came to AGB from a rescue in Tennessee. They found me on a rural road dragging a heavy chain and took me to the local shelter to see if anyone would come to claim me. No one came, so the rescue got me back. Luckily for me one of AGB’s volunteers made contact with the folks in Tennessee and arranged to get me.

Hello, I’m Taz, a 9 year old boy who has had a very rough life. I weigh 50 pounds. You see, I was living in a shelter/zoo that was outdoors and didn't just have dogs & cats. In fact my best friend was in the cage next to me & he was a tiger! The place I was at closed & some volunteers took me to AGB.

Maggie Mae
Good day friends, my name is Maggie Mae. I’m a 2 year old girl and I weigh 68 of those pound things. My owners surrendered me to a shelter because I shed. I am a Golden Retriever/Great Pyrenees mix, so I do have thick fur and like all Goldens I do shed quite a bit.

I am also very affectionate and I like to be

Rascal - MEDICAL FULLY FUNDED
Hey there friends! I’m Rascal, a 2 year old boy weighing in at about 55 lbs. A lady in Louisiana where I am from found out my owners were going to give me away and she asked them to let her take me.

I have a few hookworms that AGB is treating for me,

Well, I shouldn’t say no one because when AGB found

Violet
Good day everyone. I’m Violet, a 2 year old, 38 lb. girl. A shelter worker came in one morning and found me tied to their gate. I was so glad when I was found because I had been out there all alone and I was very, very scared. Obviously, my people couldn’t keep me anymore, but they cared enough about me to make sure I would be found and taken care of. That shelter had so many animals to care for that

Mimi - ADOPTED
Hello there, I’m Mimi, a 3 year old, 39 pound girl. My owner turned me in to a shelter because she said she had too many dogs to care for. I guess that’s why she didn’t give me the medicine I needed to keep me from getting those awful heartworms because I have them now. The shelter called AGB because they knew it would take a lot of money to get me the treatment I need to make me well and they also

This last time I got out my family was called again but they said

They couldn’t stand to see anything bad happen to
