Cash - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash" Ha, ha, not really; I'm just "Cash". it just sounded like a nice big introduction for a little Golden guy like me. So, hello, I'm Cash! I was found wandering and the person who found me posted on social media but my owner wasn't found. It had been a little while because I was starting to get a little ragged being on my own - my fur was heavily matted, I had to be wormed, I was a little disoriented and I have a urinary tract infection. So I'm real glad somebody is taking care of me again. Luckily, I'm heart worm negative. I just got neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. They've given me medicine for my UTI. A guy like me, at around 9 years of age, should be enjoying his senior years, not wondering where his next meal is coming from. As I said, I'm a little on the small size; I weigh only 46 pounds. The person who found me said I am friendly to all and I have a very sweet face. I'd like to find a new warm and loving home. I don't want to be like that Johnny Cash song "Solitary Man". I'd rather sing "We Are Family!"

Champ IV - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! Hello there, my name is Champ. I'm eight years young. My life was going along pretty well; I was happy and then my owner passed away. Haven't felt much like a champ since then. Because I wasn't being cared for until I got rescued, I've got a few medical problems that need to be fixed. First of all, I've got heart worms and a hot spot and I'm kind of thin. I'm so glad that AGB has every orphan medically evaluated and checked out. They found a stick and some plant matter wedged across the roof of my mouth between two teeth. That's been hurting me for a while. The vet put me out and not only removed the stick but also had to remove the two teeth. I'm recovering and so glad to be rid of that darn stick trapped in my mouth. I weigh 64 pounds and I'm neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. I'm a redhead with a sugar face. They keep mentioning how sweet I am and laid back. Truthfully, now that I'm on the road to feeling better and eating well, there's nothing I'd like better than going to my new home. Sure would like to be somebody's companion and live the good life again

Emmett - DONATE/SPECIAL NEEDS
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! My name is Emmett. I'm a 3 year old purebred Golden boy looking for a soft place to land. My life has been a bit of a car crash in the last year; literally a car ran over me last Spring and I feel lucky to be around. The trauma and injury to my back legs was severe and I've been mostly living at the vet's since the accident having multiple surgeries to repair my legs and then the recovery period afterwards. The surgeries were halfway successful but I am still lame in my rear legs. I get around okay for potty purposes and such, but I can't run and I'll need assistance to go on walks. I get tired easily. Even though I can walk some, I can't bear any weight on my back legs. My owners have had me since I was an 8 week old puppy and are devastated to let me go. They say I am amazing and an all around good family dog. But they know I need a home without steps, a grassy area to play in and enjoy, and someone that can stay at home with me a lot of the time. They wish me to have the best life I can have since I'm such a young boy. So they called AGB who had me evaluated at the Veterinary Specialists of Birmingham again to see if any future surgeries would make a further difference. I weigh 60 pounds and I'm heart worm negative and vaccinated. I will get neutered and microchipped soon but, quite frankly, I'd enjoy not getting another surgery right away. I am friendly to all; okay with cats, dogs (as long as they don't jump on my back), people and strangers. Just a very handsome, hopeful, and easy going fellow looking for love and a home where I can rest easy with you. I promise to give back to you all the love and companionship you can stand. My name Emmett means "universal" or "entire" and I like to think I am the "entire" package even if my needs are a little special. xox, Emmett

Otis
Hiya, my name is Otis. When you hear the name Otis, you quite naturally think of Otis Redding and I kind of identify with his song "Love Man". Remember that song in Dirty Dancing? "So you can call me the Love Man". Just look into my eyes and you'll see what I mean. I am a 6 month old boy, currently weigh about 20 pounds and they tell me I'm pretty stinking cute. My owner was moving and couldn't take puppies along so here I am. I'm heart worm negative, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Since I'm so young, it would probably be good to get some puppy training in my new home. I have a great temperament and I excel in snuggling and being on your lap. I'm not a long legged guy so I probably won't grow into a great big dog. But I have some great dance moves. So I'm going to need a new home and a new family to practice those moves with them. Remember, I wanna be your Love Man!

Sammy - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY. Hello there, folks. I'm Sammy the Spectacular but you can just call me Sammy! I'm a 7 and 1/2 year old Golden boy who weighs 57 pounds. I've been feeling a little melancholy because my person had to enter a nursing home and, while I got to visit them for a while in the nursing home, the family thought it might be best for me to find a new home and some new people to love me. I loved visiting the nursing home; everybody was so happy to see me. So since I'm good at cheering folks up, maybe somebody would cheer me up by welcoming me into their home and heart. That would be grand! I'm a healthy boy who is heart worm negative, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. I've got a light gold coat with a bit of a sugar face and a roguish grin. I've always lived in doors so I'm house trained. I'm not sure about cats, but maybe I haven't been around them. We could have a spectacular life together, don't you think? xox, Sammy

Moose - ADOPTED
Feb 16, 2020 - Adorable little Moose was rescued from a shelter on Christmas Eve by AGB. His happy and loving disposition won the hearts of many and made him a popular boy. He is now in the perfect home with an adoring mom who works from home. She says that Moose is the best boy and that everyone who meets him falls in love with him. We can see why! ******************************************* My name is Moose. I think somebody was having a little fun with that name because a Moose is supposed to be big and strong...and I'm not that big of a boy. I only weigh 48 pounds and am on the short side. But I'm strong and powerful; I'm sure of it! I got rescued from a shelter on Christmas Eve by AGB. Talk about getting a good present from Santa. And now I hear they're going to find me a new, loving home. Hallelujah! I'm about 1 and a half years old with a dark golden coat and a happy grin. I'm awful cute. Everybody is bragging about how sweet I am. I am heart worm negative, microchipped, vaccinated and I just got neutered the day after Christmas (not a high point of my rescue, I must say). I'm in good health. I also must say that I think 2020 is going to be a wonderful year. I'm just waiting for that perfect family to contact AGB, waltz in to meet me, and take me home with them. Won't that be wonderful! I'd be grinning all day long. Please come meet me. Happy New Year to you from Moose (you can change my name if you want, tee hee).

Apollo - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! They've given me a name worthy of a Greek god but truthfully, I'm just doggone cute! Hello, I'm Apollo and I'm 7 years old; a cream colored smiling boy that is so happy to be out of the shelter and rescued. I hear I'm going to get a new home with a new family. That sounds just perfect and I can't wait. In my past life, I was neglected and I was left tied to a tree before I got taken to a shelter. I want to forget about how sad that made me. I'm 53 pounds and I've been cured of heart worms. I look younger than my years and I've got very cute polka dots on my ears. I'm neutered, vaccinated and, best of all, house trained. I ride well in the car and I get along great with my foster dog friends. I am very sweet and I'm always grinning. And I could stand to be treated like a Greek god for the rest of my life.

Sunflower
Just like late summer's blooms, my name is Sunflower. I'm sunny, bright and beautiful; a bit of a flirt too. "Sunflowers symbolize adoration, loyalty and longevity. Sunflowers are known for being “happy” flowers, making them the perfect gift to bring joy to someone's day." Okay, I'm sure I will bring joy to someone's day. I hope it's yours because I'm looking for a new home. Goodness knows I'll be loyal and adore you. I found myself picked up by animal control and taken to a shelter. I got my freedom ride to AGB and it's going to be flowers and kisses for me from now on out! I'm docile and sweet and I always have a pleasant smile on my face. I'm a beautiful white faced girl of about 7 years that weighs 61 pounds. I'm vaccinated, spayed, microchipped and cured of heart worms. I'm good with other dogs and I'm sure I'll bloom at your house.
