MISSIE
Hey hey everyone! My name is Missie and I am pleased to meet ya! I am a 1 year old little lady who wound up being what they call ‘stray’. I was really scared, but luckily I got picked up by some folks who contacted AGB to take me in. I am sweet and affectionate and great with children and other dogs. I am pretty good about not jumping, but like most 1 year olds, I do like to play and I occasionally get the zoomies because running around the yard is just fun! If you want to add a fun loving girl to your family, ask AGB to let you meet me, Missie.

My name is Dodger and I am a 2 year old golden boy. I had a rough start to my life. You see, I was hit by a car as a puppy and now don’t have mobility in my tail and I have some potty issues as well. My owners abandoned me so I wandered into a nearby family’s yard. Luckily for me, they took me in and got me to AGB.

PIXIE
I’m Pixie! I’m a little girl of 2-3 years who wound up stray and in a shelter until AGB stepped up to take me in. I weigh about 40 lbs and I have been told I look like a little fox! My AGB friends think I will be somebody's dream dog! Here are just a few of the things my foster families have liked best about me: I'm potty and doggy door trained, playful but calm, I don't chew on things, I'm a small-medium size, I am easy on walks, I am a loving snuggle bug, and I am dog, kid and cat friendly. So, as you see, I am pretty much a perfect little girl! If you think I would be a great addition to your family, I hope you will contact AGB and ask to meet me. I look forward to meeting you soon!

MAMA BEAR - PLEASE DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND
Hello, Mama Bear here. I’m a super sweet 6 year old lady. I weigh 49 lbs. I ended up in a shelter with my two babies, which is how I got my name. The shelter found homes for my babies and luckily AGB agreed to take me in. You see, I’m heartworm positive and have some bad ear infections, so I need medical care to help get me healthy. AGB promises to take very good care of me. I am very social and love everyone I meet. I am ready to meet the people who will share their hearts and home with me and love me forever. Could that be you? If you want to see if we can make a love connection, just submit an application and ask to meet the Mama Bear. PS…If you are able to make a donation to help with my heartworm treatment and medical care, I would be very grateful. Thank you!

SCOUT IV - ADOPTION PENDING
Hello there, I’m Scout, is a 3 year old, 76 lb golden boy. My family didn’t have enough time to spend with me and I was spending most of my time outside in a pen. They knew this was not a good way for me to live so they asked AGB for help to match me with a new family. I had some hookworms and ear infections, but the AGB doctors started treating me for those things right away and now I feel so much better. I love everyone and I crave attention. I like to play fetch. I get along well with dogs and cats, though I admit I sometimes get really excited around the kitties. I would dearly love to be an inside dog so I can be close to my humans. So, if you are looking for a happy, playful, all around great guy, I could be the boy for you.

OPIE II - PLEASE DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND
Hi everyone. My name is Opie. I’m a sweet fella about 10 years old and I don’t mind telling you I have not had an easy life. I was out on my own stray for a long time. Finally I got picked up by animal control. They contact AGB because they could tell I needed more love and care than they could give me to make sure I got adopted by just the right people. I have not eaten well in quite some time so I only weigh about 40 lbs. My fur was very dirty and matted, so AGB had to shave me, but they tell me they will give me good nutritious food and with a little time, it will grow back better than ever. I am struggling with arthritis and my ears were badly infected and hurting something awful, but the doctors here are taking great care of me and the medicine is already helping me. I am a sweet natured boy and I just want to be loved and have a family I can call my very own. I know I might not be much to look at right now, but if you can look beyond this kind of worn and weary exterior into my eyes and into my heart, I hope you will see the loving soul I am inside. If you want to share your heart and home with the most loving and grateful friend you will ever have, please let AGB know you want to meet me, Opie. PS...If you can make a donation to help with y medical bills, that would be swell. Just click "more" to see how much I need and to donate.

RUDY II - ADOPTION PENDING
Hey y’all. My name is Rudy. I’m a four-year-old, 85 lb fella. My human father passed away recently and my family had a hard time caring for me and the other dogs in our house after that. I wasn’t getting the attention and exercise I deserve, so AGB agreed to take me in. I’m a super sweet guy who loves everyone I meet. I can be shy when in new environments, but I warm up quickly. I get along well with other dogs and have lived with other Goldens and Dachshunds in the past. I don’t have much experience with children or cats, but I am curious to know more about both! I love to play and get pets and lovin’. My friends at AGB told me they have a family who has been waiting for a boy like me for a really long time and they want to meet me! I really hope we all love each other and soon I will be enjoying life in my new forever home.

OSCAR - NEEDS PERMANENT FOSTER
Hello AGB friends! Oscar here. I am a 10 year old fella and my story before coming to AGB is a sad one. My elderly owner passed away and I was left outside tied up until I was finally taken in by a shelter, but by then I was in very bad shape. They contacted AGB because I needed more care than they were able to give me. I am heartworm positive but can't be treated for it because I am in the early stages of renal failure. I also have arthritis, but AGB is giving me medication to help me get around better. I like to spend time with my people. I will go outdoors with them, but when they come in, I want in too! With my medical issues, I am not always housebroken and I need to wear a diaper due to incontinence. I get along well with other dogs and cats. I prefer smaller dogs or larger dogs who aren't too energetic, just because I can be a little unstable on my feet. I need to be in a loving, safe, environment (preferably with no stairs) where I am well cared and taken out frequently for breaks. AGB says I am one tough dude who has come leaps and bounds since they took me in. Isn't it amazing what a little love can do?🥰 I need to find a permanent foster family in the Birmingham, AL area. As a permanent foster, all of my medical care would be covered by AGB - you would just provide the love, food, treats and a safe place for me to be for the rest of my days. Can you find room in your home and your heart for me? I am staying with an awesome couple in a temporary foster home right now and those fine folks would be happy to talk to you about me and answer your questions. If you think you would like me to come be your special boy, please fill out the foster application and make sure you put on there that you want to be my permanent foster family. Thanks so much for reading my story! PS...I also need donations to help pay my medical bills, so click "more" to see how much I need and to make a donation. Thank you!
