Fields - ADOPTION PENDING
My name is Fields. I weigh 46 pounds and I just turned 2 years old. Becoming two is turning out to be a good thing after some scary incidents. My friends and I (AGB orphans Cena, Ed and the puppies) were owned by someone who kept lots of dogs and got to the point where he couldn't take care of us. Animal Control took us all to a shelter where our chances for survival didn't look good. And Cena and I had some lacerations that needed to be treated. AGB heard about us and rushed to rescue us. And they've already found a family that wants me to become theirs. I have a lot of learn. I love everybody and everything now that my life has changed so wonderfully. I'm a very friendly but also a quiet, sweet boy. I especially like treats! I think everything is going to be okay - my future looks bright! Please help my friends have a bright future too.

Ed
Hello, friends. I'm Ed. I'm 2 years old. I'm told I'm a wonderful guy. I'm big and beautiful (65 pounds) and I love everybody and everything - which is surprising since I spent my puppy years in a hoarding situation and not being cared for very well. My friends and I got taken to a shelter where we needed to get out quick to save our lives. I need to learn a few dog lessons - like walking on a leash and not jumping up on you to greet you. I think I'd be lonely without another pup sibling to keep me company and it would be great to have my human around most of the time too. The folks here at AGB tell me that I'm always smiling but my grin would be so big when I find my forever home! xox, Ed

Cena
My name is Cena. I'm a 3 year old girl who weighs a slight 43 pounds. My story, and some of my friends' stories (AGB orphans Fields, Ed and puppies too) haven't started well. We came from a hoarding situation and got taken to a shelter where our prospects didn't look good. But AGB came quickly and rescued us all early in January. You can can imagine a very sweet girl like me has got a lot to learn about being an inside pup with good food and a warm place to sleep and people who love me. I'm working hard on learning to trust. Are you the human that will get to know me and love me? I'm hoping my escape from the shelter or worse means I'm on the way to a happy life in a forever home. Please ask about me.

Miss Molly - ADOPTION PENDING
"Good Golly, Miss Molly!" Bet you're singing that song now, aren't you? Yes, my name is Miss Molly. I'm a sweet little girl of 3 that weighs 52 pounds. I used to live in Arizona and another rescue organization brought me to Alabama. They thought AGB would find a wonderful home for me. And they have! They said it wasn't hard for a little princess like me. I have certificates and awards from obedience training classes. I ride well in the car. My new family and I are going to be very happy together!

2018 brought some bundles of joy to AGB and to some very happy adopters!

I'll be officially adopted real soon. I'm somebody's Darling! And everybody that meets me says "Awww!"

Dandy-ADOPTION PENDING
Hiya, friends! I'm Dandy! I'm about 1 year old and I weigh 49 pounds. I'm heart worm negative and now I'm neutered, vaccinated and microchipped thanks to AGB. I was found when I wandered up to a local business. I can't remember whether I was lost or somebody just dropped me off. I've been rescued now and that's just dandy! Or, as they say, "all fine and dandy" which is probably why they named me that. "Dandy" means "an excellent thing of its kind". And I'm an excellent pup - cute as button, loving, and playful with other dogs and quite handsome. Come meet me - you'd probably like (actually love) a boy like me a lot!!

Mollie - ADOPTION PENDING
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE GENEROUS BENEFACTORS WHO DONATED TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE'! Gorgeous Golden girl looking for a new home with no other dogs. Hello, everybody, I'm Mollie. I'm 3 years old and weigh a petite 45 pounds. One of the little people I lived with was allergic to me. I sure hope I won't be an orphan for long because I like to think I'm quite a catch: I'm young (but house trained). I'm pretty and friendly and active and playful. I LOVE belly rubs. Love kids too. I'm also crate trained, spayed and microchipped. Unfortunately, I do need to be treated for heart worms but AGB will make sure I get medicine for that. I'm also the jealous type so I'd rather be your one and only girl - it takes me a while to warm up to other dogs until I get to know them very well. And no cats please. So if anybody is looking for a gorgeous golden girl, please contact AGB and let them know you specially want to meet me, Mollie!

Ike - FULLY FUNDED - ADOPTION PENDING
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE GENEROUS BENEFACTORS WHO DONATED TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE'! Hello, I'm Ike and I'm two years old and weigh 76 pounds. For such a young boy like me, I'm having a blue, blue Christmas. I was at a shelter in east Alabama and I've also been a stray - and I was picked up heart worm positive, with several small wounds and an ear infection. Luckily for me, AGB is taking care of all that and I'll be good as new soon. While I'm waiting, I'm dreaming of laying safe and warm and calm - maybe in front of a fireplace or a Christmas tree - with someone special stroking my soft fur. Some folks at AGB told me I am gorgeous and have fur "as soft as a baby's". I'm not quite used to getting attention and being cared for but I think I might like it just fine. Perhaps you could be the one to show me what it's like to be a beloved family Golden so my next Christmas will be anything but blue. Hopefully, Ike

Colt
Colt! That's my new name and it's a good one for me. An Urban Dictionary description of the name "Colt" is "a great personality, very attractive, usually gets along well with everyone", and is - ha ha - "commonly desired by the opposite sex". Well now, I just want a family to call my own no matter who it is! I'm a two year big old boy and I weigh 77 pounds which is a bit underweight for me. Somebody put me in the bullpen of a northern Alabama shelter, and AGB came and got me right away so they could find me a new safe, loving home. They've been spending time with me and said I have a great smile, I'm fun, I'm cute with good energy, sweet, and well-mannered with lots of personality. That sounds like "Colt" fits me to a tee. And you know what I hope - that I'll suit you to a tee - and you'll want me to be a part of your family.

Sasha-ADOPTION PENDING
Hello, friends! My name is Sasha and I'm a sweet girl that's only six months old. My owner recently found out she is pregnant and she decided she couldn't take care of me because of that. So, all of a sudden, I'm an "orphan". That makes me sad. I'm a very good puppy too and AGB tells me I won't be an orphan for very long. Here's why - I'm already house-trained, I like other dogs, I ignore cats and I'm in awe of kids. I'm already spayed, microchipped, and so ready for my forever family. I weigh 50 pounds. Did I mention that I'm a redhead? There must be a nice family out there that's waiting for a precious girl like me to come live with them forever. So please contact AGB and ask about Sasha. I think it would be so nice to have a forever home.

Saban II - ADOPTION PENDING WITH STELLA
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE GENEROUS BENEFACTOR WHO DONATED TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE'. Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? How about two beautiful white pups - that would be twice as nice! I'm Saban, and Stella is my sister, and we're both four years old. We're Golden with a dash of Great Pyrenees mixed in. I weigh 74 pounds and just can't do without my sister. I worry when she's not around. We've been outside dogs and AGB says they're going to make sure we get to live inside from now on. We're both sweet and friendly and we like other dogs. Our previous owner couldn't take care of us any longer and didn't give us our heart worm preventative. We're both being treated for heart worms now. I like treats and will really warm up to you when you give them to me. Stella says we could celebrate the holidays in a nice warm house with somebody to love both of us. I think that would be very nice. Won't you come meet us? We promise to love you as much as we love each other.

Stella II -ADOPTION PENDING WITH SABAN
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE GENEROUS BENEFACTOR WHO DONATED TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE'! Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? How about two beautiful white pups - that would be twice as nice! I'm Stella, and Saban is my brother, and we're both four years old. We're Golden with a dash of Great Pyrenees mixed in. I weigh 47 pounds. We've been outside dogs and we're both ready to be somebody's live in fur babies. We're sweet and friendly and good looking too! We like other dogs just fine. Our previous owner couldn't take care of us any longer and forgot to give us our heart worm preventative so we've both got to go through heart worm treatment. I wish we didn't but it will be okay as long as Saban and I are together. I could use a few more pounds so holidays treats would be very welcome. Can you picture us two laying around the fireplace together with you? Doesn't that sound nice? It does to us. Please come meet us. We'd love to be home for Christmas!
