Bobo
Hello friends, my name is Bobo. I’m 2 years old and 81 lbs. Until recently I was the happiest boy you’d ever meet, but the person I loved most in the world passed away. I was having trouble dealing with the loss of my favorite human and then I got dealt a second blow when I was taken to a shelter and left there. I was so scared even though one of the shelter workers took a liking to me and gave me

Squirt
Hey there folks, I’m Squirt, a 2 year old boy weighing in at 58 lbs. I know you may be wondering how I ended up with a Golden Retriever rescue since I am not gold. Well, you see, AGB literally saved my life. I lived with a family who had a neighbor with chickens. I love chickens! I love to chase them, that is. Well the neighbor got really mad. So mad, in fact, that he shot me! That’s right, I got shot

Luke III
Hey there, it’s laid back Luke here. I’m a 1 year old boy weighing in at 46 lbs. I got a little lost recently so I wandered up to a house hoping that nice family would take me in. Because I’m pretty adorable, they let me live with them while they tried to find my owner. They checked everywhere and advertised me a lot, but no one came forward to claim me. They wanted to make sure I was healthy so

AGB said they will take care of purchasing

Hi there everyone, I’m Tanner. I’m a 5-6 month old little boy and I have been having a tough time lately. I got lost up in North Alabama and tried and tried to find someone to take me in and love me. I was so scared out in the big, wide world on my own. Finally, I was picked up in a truck that said “animal control” on it. I thought maybe they were taking me to my forever home, but I went to a place

Hello there, I’m Sadie. My owner moved and said I could not go so I was surrendered to a shelter. I was sad about that and nervous at the shelter, but then an AGB volunteer came to get me.

Bentley IV
Hi, I’m Bentley. I’m an 18 month old boy and I weigh 63 lbs. Like most boys my age, I need lots of activity and a little training to help me be a happy, healthy, well-mannered dog.

Though they loved me, they felt it wasn’t fair for me to stay with them as I was alone and confined to the kitchen most of the

Flash
Hey friends, it’s me, Flash here. I’m a 9 month old little boy and I weigh 45 of those pound things. My previous owners decided not to keep me and gave me away. The family who took me in knew they couldn’t keep me but wanted to make sure I got placed with a good, loving family. I have not always been treated kindly, so I am sometimes shy and timid, but I get along well with other dogs and don’t really

Hoss - ADOPTED
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.

Violet - MEDICAL FULLY FUNDED
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

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

They couldn’t stand to see anything bad happen to
