Rocco
Hiya, my name is Rocco and I'm ready to romp my way into your life. As you can see, I'm a gorgeous black haired boy (Flat Coated Retriever) that's 2 years old with happy eyes and demeanor. I weigh 38 pounds. I know I'm a pretty boy but I'm also lots of fun. I have a wonderful time in my life - I love to walk and run, I love car rides, and get along great with other dogs and even strangers. I'm super friendly. I'm cautious but okay with the kitty cats. I sleep in my dog bed or on the sofa, if I'm allowed. My black coat is long but I shed very little. I'm fully house trained and kennel trained. I'm used to spending 8 hours by myself and I just nap my way through it. I'm heart worm negative, neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. I'm darn near a perfect pup except for one little vice, like typical retrievers. I don't like those varmints called chickens. So if you're Colonel Sanders, I'm probably not the pup for you. I cannot wait to be your boy so I sure hope you come see me right quick before I steal somebody else's heart!

Eagle - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! Hello, my name is Eagle. That's a strong, proud name that I hope I can live up to soon. You see, I'm a young boy that's not in great shape at the moment. I'm not even a year old yet; I'm around 10 months old. I weigh 30 pounds. I wound up at a shelter and I was marked urgent for medical care. They contacted AGB and somebody nice rushed over and got me - in the nick of time! I have heart worms. I had lice on me - yuck - which gave me a skin infection. My coat is in sad shape. I needed to be vaccinated and neutered. But most of all, I needed some good food and loving care. And maybe some toys; I bet I'd like those. I'd like to just be a puppy and have some fun and adventure! They say I'll be a beautiful boy when my heart worms are treated and I gain some weight and my fur is soft and grown out. I think I'm lovable; maybe you'd come and meet me and see if you thought so too. I'm very friendly and I have a resilient spirit. Maybe the first 10 months of my life could have been happier and healthier, but I'm so hoping the next ten years will be wonderful. I was rescued in the nick of time. I sure hope that I find "love in the nick of time" too, like that lady sang in her song.

Valentine - ADOPTION PENDING
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! "My funny Valentine". I arrived at AGB from a shelter in northern Alabama right before Valentine's Day so that's what they named me, Valentine. I was with my two babies at the shelter but they got adopted out right away. I'm only 1 years old; still just a puppy girl myself. My life sure hasn't been hearts and flowers so far. Everybody says I'm a total sweetheart; I've been calm and quiet and gentle but I am a little scared. I haven't been feeling too good. I'm really thin; "emaciated" they said, and I have heart worms and was treated for hookworms too. I got spayed a few days ago. The good news for me is my vet put me on 3 meals of puppy food every day so I'm going to get to a good weight with some curves soon. I currently weigh 36 pounds. I'm on medicine and treatment for the other medical stuff. I have the beautiful block head of a Golden Retriever and the beautiful white coat of a Great Pyrenees; there's no doubt I'm a gorgeous girl. My eyes are a little sad right now but, once I'm all cured and with a family, I'm sure they'll reflect my happiness. I want to be somebody's Queen of Hearts for the rest of my life.

Bo II
Hello, my name is Bo II. Wonder if I was named for Bo Diddly or Bo Jackson? Who knows? I'm certainly not a R&B singer or a baseball player but I am a wonderful pup that deserves to be adored! I'm a 5 year old boy who is great with strangers and other dogs. I'm very sweet and friendly! I ignore cats. I'm an owner surrender; my Mom moved and couldn't take me along. I'm neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and heart worm negative. I did make a New Year's resolution to take off some pounds because I weigh a little more than I should - 107 pounds. Okay, okay, maybe I need to lose more than a few pounds. But AGB already has me on a good diet and with some fun and regular exercise, I'll be a lean and lithe boy in no time flat. I've got a sweet smile and a sweet disposition. Why don't you come meet me? We could have a bo-dacious good time together!! Here I am; just waiting for you!!
