Dogs highlighted in blue are in need of a foster family

Addison - Turkey Dog
I’m Addison. I’m 3 years old and I have been living in an overcrowded shelter for a very long time. I just want to have some space to run and play and some people to love me and spoil me a little. I am doing great with my foster family. They have three other dogs and it didn't take me long at all to get the hang of American dog play. I'm also really smart! I figured out the doggie door just by watching my foster siblings. If you think I might be a good fit for your family, please submit an application and ask to meet me. *** Addison is being sponsored by Gerrin McGowan. Thanks to her generosity, Addison's travel & medical expenses are covered! Thank you Gerrin!

I hope we can meet soon.

Dora - Turkey Dog
Hi there, my name is Dora. I’m a 2 year old girl. I was wandering on a highway one day when a nice fella who rescues dogs in Turkey saw me.

Madison - Turkey Dog
Hello, my name is Madison. I’m a 3 year old little lady. I was living in the largest shelter in Istanbul. It was very noisy and crowded there so I’m pretty happy to be rescued. I can’t wait to be matched with my forever family. Maybe it could be you!

Marion - Turkey Dog
My name is Marion. I’m a 2 year old girl and I was not in good shape when I was found. I had been hit by a car and needed surgery on my foot. I had the surgery but I still have a little limp. AGB is evaluating me to see how they can help me. I am so glad to be in Alabama. I don’t want to live on the streets anymore. I can’t wait to be in a loving and safe home. I am so grateful to the loving AGB volunteers and my sponsors for taking great care of me. *** Marion is being sponsored by Dr. William & Mrs. Leeanne Andrews.

Morgan - Turkey Dog
I’m Morgan, a sweet 2 year old girl. I was brought to a shelter and spayed, but then put back out on the street. Finally, a volunteer took me in and got me to a shelter where I was selected to come to America. I am very excited to meet all the wonderful people here who are giving me a second chance at life. I am loving my foster family! They have lots of other dogs for me to play with and we are having so much fun. If you are looking for a sweet, fun loving girl to add to your family, I hope you will come meet me.

More

Theodore - Turkey Dog
I’m Theodore, a 2 year old boy who was found severely undernourished. I am sweet and good with people, but I would probably do best as an only dog. I am looking forward to making America my home and to meeting my forever family soon.

More

Troy - Turkey Dog
I’m Troy, a 3 year old boy who was found in the forest and brought to a shelter facility. I was chosen to come to an American rescue because of my sweet personality and temperament. I am happy that I will finally have a family to call my own.

Tucker
Hello friends, I’m Tucker, a 3 year old, 64 pound boy. I somehow wound up in a shelter and was feeling pretty lonely until AGB took me in. I’m well behaved in cars and I am loving and gentle. Whoever had me before did not give me the medicine I needed and those nasty old mosquitos got to me! Now I have these things called heartworms, but I never lost my friendly smile or my wagging tail. My friends at AGB said they are going to get me well and find my forever family. I am really happy to hear that because I love people and can’t wait to be in a comfy, loving home. If you want to add a handsome, red head to your family, please apply to adopt on AGB’s website and ask to get together with me, Tucker. PS…AGB has set up a special fund for my medical care and I would really appreciate any amount you can give to help with my vet bills. Thanks!

Aspen
My name is Aspen. I’m a 1 year old little girl who came to AGB from a shelter in North Alabama. I’m on the small side, weighing in at just 47 lbs. but the folks here say I am sweet as can be. I was on my best behavior in the car on the ride to AGB. I am a typical energetic Golden girl. I may need some help learning not to jump or pull on the leash, but I’m really smart so I’m sure I’ll catch on quickly. I love treats and lots of attention. If you think we would be a good match, just submit an adoption application and ask to meet me, Aspen.

More

Mags
Howdy folks, I’m Mags, a 5 year old, 42 lb., girl in search of a new forever home. I’m an active dog. I love people, belly rubs, walks and car rides. If you like to run, I would be a great running partner. I would do well as an only pet and in a home without small children as I get a little nervous around them. If you're looking to welcome a loyal and lovely little lady into your life I hope you will take the time to meet me, Mags. I have a feeling we will have a lot of fun together! See you soon. Your friend, Mags.

Sabrina
Hello there. My name is Sabrina and I’m an 8 year old, 37 pound little lady. I was kept outdoors at my previous home and had figured out how to get out. My family thought that was dangerous and didn’t want me to get hurt, so they asked AGB to help me find a new family to take care of me. I had some surgery recently to remove a growth on my skin and my teeth got a good cleaning. I’m feeling better now and eager to find my forever home. I am a sweet and gentle girl. I can be a little timid when we first meet, but it doesn’t take me long to warm up and want to cuddle with you. I like to go for walks and I am smart and eager to please. Do you think I could be the perfect girl for you? If so, I hope you will tell my AGB friends you want to meet me, Sabrina.

Albert
My name is Albert and I’m a 10 year old fella looking for my forever home. My owner moved and gave me to a family member. The family member worked a lot and didn't have much time for me and that’s how I ended up with AGB. My new friends here say that I deserve tons of love and affection and they will see that I get that. My needs are simple, really. I just want someone to love me and spend time with me. I like kids and other dogs. I also like car rides, so wherever life’s journey takes you, I hope you will let me come along for the ride. Just fill out an application on AGB’s website and tell them you want to add Albert to your family. I hope to see you soon. PS… I’m available for adoption under the Seniors to Seniors program which means my adoption fee will be waived for adopters who are 65 or older.

Charley IV
Hi, I’m Charley! I’m 4 years old and weigh 64 lbs. I’m a sweet boy who likes people, playing, walks and car rides. I’m friendly towards most dogs and a fairly easy going dog. I don’t like fireworks or cats. (Well, I like to chase cats, but I’m told that’s not nice.) I’m house trained and know how to sit on command. I’m healthy and ready to find my forever family. Could it be you? If you are looking to bring a furry best friend into your life, I hope you will submit an adoption application to AGB. Make sure you tell them you want to meet me, Charley. I can’t wait to meet you!

Shadow & Chance -Bonded Pair- DONATE
Hi everyone. My name is Shadow & I’m a 3-4 year old, 85 lb., Black Lab boy. I was found on the side of the road with my very best friend Chance who is a 3-4 year old, 50 lb., Golden boy. Chance was very sick & I didn’t want anyone to hurt him, so I was protecting him & I wouldn’t leave his side. The lady who found us was very sweet & something inside me said I should trust her, so I let her help us. A neighbor helped her & so did a nice police officer who kept traffic away from us while we got loaded in the car so we could be taken to a clinic. Another lady knew about AGB so she contacted them to help & they agreed to take us in. We were in pretty bad shape, starving & dehydrated. Chance was severely matted, & had ear & eye infections. As it turns out that was the least of our worries. Unfortunately, I'm heartworm positive & Chance had to have a very large mass removed from one his organs. Chance is recuperating nicely now. We are good boys, extremely loving & sweet. We're housetrained & know basic commands. We would probably be best as your only dogs, but we get along with cats OK. We're very bonded & like to do everything together. In fact, we are even known to share a food bowl even if we don't have to. If you have room in your heart & home for two special & sweet boys, I promise you will be loved & protected forever! We hope to meet you soon, Shadow & Chance. PS...AGB has set up a special fund for donations to help with our medical bills. Anything you can give will make our tails wag. Thanks so much, Shadow & Chance.

Bella V -ADOPTION PENDING MEDICAL RELEASE
Hey there everybody, I’m Bella. I’m 2 years old and I weigh 46 pounds. My owner had to move to a small apartment and couldn’t take me with her, so she asked AGB to help find me a wonderful, new forever home. I am a very sweet and friendly girl. I’m house and crate trained. I know a few commands like sit and come. I like those short people you call kids and other dogs. If you are looking to add a pretty and smart girl to your family, I hope you will ask to meet me, beautiful Bella!

Ross - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi everyone! I’m Ross and I’m 1 year old and weigh 45 of those pound things. I was a stray, scared and lonely on the streets. A nice man took pity on me and began to feed me, but I was so shy, I was afraid to come to him. He reached out to a small rescue in his area and they were able to catch me. As soon as they got me they realized I belonged with AGB. So now I’m here with AGB and I’m waiting to be matched with a family who will love me forever so I’ll never be a stray again. If you have been searching for a sweet, handsome, friendly fella to fill your home and heart with love, look no further. I’m the dog for you! What are you waiting for? Fill out the adoption application today and be sure and mention you are interested in meeting me, Ross.

Riker
Hey there friends. My name is Riker. I’m a 3 year old boy and I weigh 52 lbs. Somehow I found myself in this place called a shelter. I don’t mind telling you that really stressed me out! The shelter workers could tell that I was really upset so they asked AGB to help me out. I’m still a little nervous after all I’ve been through because I’m really not sure what is going to happen next, but everyone here has been very nice to me. I’m a sweet boy and I love to play with toys. I am getting along well with my foster brother dog and I'm walking on a leash like a boss. I'm crate trained and good in the car. I want so badly to find my forever home. Do you think that could be with you? If so, just fill out an application and let AGB know you want to meet me, Riker. I promise to love and protect you forever.

Coby
Good day friends. My name is Coby and I’m a wise, senior fellow of 10-11 years of age. I’m healthy and up to date on my vaccinations. I have a sweet temperament and I want nothing more than to be with my people. I like children and have lived with a cat whom I got along with very well. I am very fearful of thunderstorms! I really need someone who can comfort me when the thunder rolls in and help me to feel at ease. If you feel you can help me enjoy my Golden years and want to receive my unconditional love in return, I hope you will submit an application to adopt and ask to be matched with me, Coby. PS…I am available for adoption under the Seniors to Seniors program which means my adoption fee will be waived for adopters who are 65 or older.

Garth
Hey y’all, Garth here. I’m a 3 year old, 42 lb. boy who came to AGB from a shelter. Shelter life made me a little nervous, but I warm up quickly and the volunteers here say I’m a sweet, calm boy. I ride well in the car but need a little more work walking on that thing you call a leash. I do better in a harness. I have a fun personality and just want to find a family to call my own. I have a little ear and urinary infection but the AGB doctors are giving me medicine for that and said I’ll be all well and ready for adoption in no time. If you’re looking for a fun, friendly guy to be with you forever, please tell AGB you want to meet me, Garth. I’ll see you soon!

Sadie Mae
Hello everyone, my name is Sadie Mae. I’m about a year and a half old and as you can see, I’m a pretty girl. I have good house manners and know how to walk nicely on a leash and to stay in place until released. I would probably be best suited in a family with older kids or no kids and no cats. I love to play with other dogs and to go for walks or runs and to play fun games like ball or Frisbee. AGB found I have a few masses on my skin that need to be removed and they are taking care of that for me. Are you looking for a fun, sweet active little lady to add to your family? If so, go ahead and fill out an adoption application on the AGB website and be sure to tell them you want to meet sweet Sadie Mae! I just know we will have a great time together. See you soon! PS...If you could make a donation to help with my medical bills, it would sure make my tail wag! Thank you!

Nikko
Hey friends, Nikko here. I’m a 1 year old, 38 pound guy. I got lost and some nice folks took me in. They kept me for months and tried to find who I belonged to, but never could find them. I got along great with their kids and small dogs so they knew I would make some lucky family very happy. They contacted AGB and told them what a sweet and friendly guy I am. So AGB has taken me in and they are working hard to help me find my perfect forever family. If you are interested in meeting me, just submit an application and ask to see Nikko. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Adele
Hello, it's me. I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet. My name is Adele (like the singer - I used the lyrics from her song “Hello” in my greeting). I’m an older gal, but I am fun and friendly. I weigh 52 pounds. I was picked up in North Alabama as a stray and sent to a shelter. I found the shelter to be a noisy, scary place even though the people there were kind to me. They contacted AGB for help. AGB got me to a doctor who treated some wounds on my legs and had to pull a tooth that was bothering me. I am feeling much better now that I am in my foster home. I am a calm, well behaved girl and everyone who has met me tells me I’m very sweet. If you are looking for a sweetheart to call your own, I hope you will submit an adoption application and tell AGB you want to meet me, Adele. PS...I am available for the seniors to seniors program which means my adoption fee will be waived for adopters 65 and older.

Daisy IV - ADOPTION PENDING MEDICAL RELEASE
Hey there everybody. I’m Daisy. I am 4 years old and weigh 73 lbs. I have always been a healthy girl, but recently I hurt my knee and leg and the doctor said I needed to have surgery. My owners said they couldn’t afford it but I was in pain so they asked the doctor to put me to sleep. My doctor said she couldn’t do that since there is a surgery that will fix my leg, and I'm otherwise healthy, so she took me in. She reached out to AGB and told them my story and asked for their help. Of course the AGB volunteers couldn’t say no. I have been so lucky to have a lot of really good people on my side who want to make sure that I get the care I need to live a normal, pain free, happy, life. So, with no time to waste, they went ahead and fixed my leg. I'll need about 6 weeks to rest up, but then I can do normal activities again. AGB is already looking for my new forever family. I’m a sweet girl and I’ve been a family dog, so I get along well with kids,cats and other dogs. I’m housetrained and very loving. If you like doggie snuggles and kisses, I’m just the girl for you! I hope we get to meet soon so I can show you my new and improved fancy, dancy leg! Your friend, Daisy. PS… My surgery would have cost much more, but the nice Vet who saved my life is sharing the expense with AGB. Thanks to all the Angels who donated to cover my medical bills!

Lady II - ADOPTION PENDING MEDICAL RELEASE
Hello friends. My name is Lady. I’m a 7 year old, 45 pound girl. I am small in size, but big in personality. In fact I just can't seem to stop smiling or wagging my tail. My owner passed away and AGB agreed to take me in. They treated me for hookworms, fleas, and ticks. I had so many fur mats that I had to be shaved, but my pretty coat will grow out soon. I also learned that I’m heartworm positive and I had a growth on my spleen. AGB gave me the surgery I needed for my spleen issue & I came through it like a champ! I'm currently completing my treatment for heartworms and I'm ready to find my forever home. I have been mainly kept outdoors, but I’m a sweet, smart girl and with just a little love and attention I know I can become someone's very best friend. If you would like to welcome a sweet Lady into your home, please ask to meet me.
