Duke
Hey there folks, it’s Duke. I’m less than 2 years old and weigh in at 48 pounds. I was wondering if anybody out there ever gets lonely? I know I do sometimes. I was lonely when I was wandering around and ended up at the Anniston shelter. It’s gotten a little better since there’s nice folks who have been taking care of me now, but I really have a strong desire for a BFF to come and take me home where

Cinnamon - FULLY FUNDED
UPDATE: August 27th -- Thank you all you Golden Angels for contributing to my medical fund. I am very lucky to have so many awesome angels who are out there watching out for me! You all have a special place in my heart. Hi there, from Cinnamon, an 18-month-old girl of only 31 pounds. When you see me, you’ll know it’s true about that old saying that good things come in small packages. I was surrendered

Mr. Hobbs
Hello, from Hobbs, a one-year-old male who weighs 51.1 pounds. I used to live at a farm, where I showed up one day and made myself at home. They wanted me to stay in a pen, though, and there were just too many interesting things to check out for me to be contained there, so I would escape a lot. Guess they didn’t like me chasing the goats, but I was just helping them get some exercise. Anyhow that’s

Tobie
Tobie here, wearing a big Golden smile in hopes of winning your heart and sealing the deal on starting our forever home together. I am a very handsome dude if I do say so myself. As to the basics, I am nine years old, neutered, weigh 80.9 pounds. Other than minor issues of a fatty deposit and some worn teeth, I am in great health and good to go to a fortunate family. I have a super sweet disposition

Hobie
Hi there! I’m Hobie, a handsome two-tone sort of guy, as you can see in my photos. I’m 13 months old and weigh in at 36 pounds. I got lost, but a nice lady found me and even took me to the vet to be checked out and groomed. That’s where she met the people from this rescue organization and got me hooked up to find a new home. Nobody can figure out where I came from, so I’m ready, set, go to find my

Zane
Hi, I’m Zane Alexander, a 7-year-old male of 55 pounds and I arrived with my friend, Zarian Reign. We came from a home that really loved us, but they couldn’t take care of us anymore because of a cut in work hours. Our humans were leaking a lot of water from their eyes when we left, but I guess they thought it was best for us. For me (Zane), I was in an abusive home for six months before I lived with

Zarian
Hi, I’m Zarian Reign, a 4-year-old male of 51 pounds and I came here with another dog called Zane Alexander. We came from a home that really loved us, but they couldn’t take care of us anymore because of a cut in work hours. It was a sad and emotional parting, but I’m looking forward to the future and finding a new home. I was in my previous home from birth, so I’m good with other dogs and also love

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 no longer able to care for me. I had tummy surgery seven years ago, so I take an inexpensive medication and I stay on a special diet of 2 cups of prescription I/P dog food daily to keep me from having stomach problems in the future. I know commands such as sit, come and

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 sad to give me up, but realized it was the best thing for me as she is having some surgery and will have a long recovery in New York. When she comes back home she knew there would be limitations

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 5 month 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 5 month 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 4 months 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

Ares
Hey everyone my name is Ares and I am as sweet as can be. Like my brother Atlas and Joe, I am 4 months 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 - ADOPTED
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

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

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 18 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 it

Flint - ADOPTED
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 - FULLY FUNDED
UPDATE August 21st -- Thank you to all the Goden Angels who came to my rescue and paid for my medical treatment. You are so very special to me! Much love, Dexter. 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

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

Casper
Hi everyone Casper here. No not the ghost. I am a real live boy. I am a little over a year 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 the awesome outdoors with my foster family. It is great. My foster mom says I have the prettiest brown eyes and my nose looks like a polar bear. I get

Summer II - ADOPTED
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
