Kayla
Hi there, I’m Kayla. I’m a one-year-old lady of 46 pounds, who was turned in to the Huntsville shelter and never claimed. I wonder if one of you might claim me for your own. It’s no question that I stand out from the crowd here, since my soft, silky fur is the color of the midnight sky on a starless night. I’d love to be the star in somebody’s life, even if I might appear a little shy at first. I promise,

Luke - DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Hi, Luke here. I’m a 4-year-old dude, weighing in at 72 pounds. I was brought in as a stray from the Cheaha Regional Shelter in Anniston and I’m really happy to be here where I have the prospect of a new home. That gypsy life, out wandering the streets, that’s not the life for me. Doctors have removed several cysts from my head since I have been with AGB and have discovered a lump on my side which

Kenny - DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Hi everyone! I’m Kenny, a gentleman of 10-12 years and 82 pounds. Do you like being out in the cold? Me neither, especially if it’s 38 degrees and I’m wet. It makes you shiver big time. Fortunately, a good Samaritan found me and got me a warm bath and even clipped the mats out of my fur. She called shelters and clinics and posted flyers, but had no luck at finding someone to claim me. Now I’m here,

Sunshine - ADOPTED
Hi people, I’m Sunshine and if you thought life was looking bright, just wait until you see me! I’m only 3 months old, but I’m as eager as can be to learn new stuff and I bet there’s someone out there who’d have a good time teaching me. Is that someone you? I arrived here from Blount county with my sister, Starlight, and people think we are practically twins. But I bet you can tell my ears are just

Starlight - ADOPTED
Hello awesome people out there! It’s Starlight here, just ready and waiting for you. I’m 3 month old and people here seem to think I’m the cutest girl ever. I did come from Blount county with my sister, Sunshine, and she’s cute, too. We kind of look alike, but you’ll notice my nose is a bit more elegant. We won’t tell sis though, since I don’t want to hurt her feelings. We get along well, but are not

Julie - ADOPTION PENDING
Greetings everyone! I’m Julie, a one to two-year-old young lady of 37 pounds seeking new friends and family. Although I may look fine and fancy, you’ll find that I’m actually a pretty healthy and low maintenance Golden. I was picked up by BJAC before I came here to look for a new home. Everybody says how well I get along with the other dogs. I don’t even mind when they get near my food, though I hope

Rosco
Yup I am back, but really and truly it was not my fault. I had a great dad; he and I were big time buddies and we did everything together, but then his job changed and he had to travel a whole lot and for extended periods. That meant that different people were taking care of me and that freaked me out a little and so admittedly I became insecure and had separation anxiety. He tried everything he

Halla - ADOPTION PENDING/DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Hi, it’s Halla. I’m five or six years old and kind of on the large side at 91 pounds. Yes, I could stand to lose five pounds or so, but it’s no big deal. I was found at a gas station and these nice people have posted me on Facebook and put up posters, but no one has claimed me, so let’s move forward with a new home. My new doctor says I have something called heartworms. Something we all hate to hear!

Jewel - SPECIAL NEEDS/DONATE MEDICAL FUND
Greetings friends we haven’t yet met! I’m Jewel, a ten-year-old purebred Golden, who is one well-traveled pup. I was surrendered to AGB by my family who could no longer afford to provide for my medical care. I have been diagnosed with a mast cell tumor on my left front paw which was removed successfully. I have also been diagnosed with cutaneous lymphoma, a form of skin cancer. AGB is sending me

Lilly III - ADOPTED
Hello out there from Lilly! I’m an eight month old lady of 54.6 pounds. I do hope you’ll pardon me for being a bit timid, but I’ve been through some tough times, so I need a little help in learning to trust again. I was thrown off a moving truck that was going down the interstate, so as you can imagine, I was scraped up pretty badly. The small rescue in Tuscaloosa that took me in as an emergency case

Ivan
UPDATE: December 9th: To all the Golden Santa helpers out there, I want to say thank you very much from the bottom of my big ole heart, for funding my heartworm treatment! Ho Ho Ho, Ivan -- Hi there, it’s Ivan and I want to be your brown-eyed boy! I’m a two-year-old guy who weighs in at 50 pounds. I was found as a stray and no one has claimed me, so I need to make some new friends, hopefully a good

Jet
How do you do? Jet here. I’m a seven-year-old male who weighs in at 87 pounds. I’m really sad to say that my owner went to a new home up in the sky, heaven, I think the humans call it. So now I need to find a new place, too. I was very much loved in that home, so I’m a very loving fellow. I’m house trained and get along super with other dogs. Rides in the car are among my favorite things and I know

Harry
Hello there from Harry! I’m a healthy two-year-old dude who hails from Huntsville. The animal services people there picked me up, but nobody ever came to claim me. Go figure on that one. Their loss can be your gain, because everybody here says I’m a great guy. There were lots and lots of other dogs at the shelter, maybe about 20, and I got along with all of them. I’m active and alert, so I don’t miss

Fiona - ADOPTED
Hello fine folks! Fiona is here and ready for my belly rub now, please. I’m a loving and lovable girl of 40 pounds and 3- 4 years of age. I tried volunteering at a farm where they had these critters with super skinny legs. When I’d run towards them, they would take off, feathers flying. Guess those farmers didn’t appreciate my attempts at chicken herding, so now I’m here and looking for a new home.

Brennan - ADOPTION PENDING
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

Dakota Blue
Greetings all! Dakota Blue at your service. I am 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 now I feel all alone.
