Dogs highlighted in blue are in need of a foster family
|Boots - ADOPTED|
6/20/17 - Boots and sister Bubbles were found at the same dumpster site as our other recent puppies. Before we even got Boots posted on the website, his vet fell in love with his cute and funny personality. Boots is now Boogey and living with AGB alum Midas ("the best dog ever") and their Pug, who is the same size as Boogey presently, but not for long! We can't wait to see how big he will get, and he is already showing how smart he is at 8 weeks old. Boogey waved bye-bye in his "onesie" and said "Thank you AGB, I got the best home ever!"
Hi everybody! I'm Bubbles, a 8 week old, 12 lb. little girl. I was found with my brother on the side of a deserted road where we had been abandoned. We were cold, hungry & scared! Luckily the nice person who found us took care of us and got us to AGB. Now I'm ready to find the family who will love me forever. Could that be you? I hope so! To meet me, just submit an adoption application on the AGB website and ask to meet me, Bubbles.
Hello, hello friends! I'm Kyra, a 1 & 1/2 year old little lady ready to find my forever home. I came to AGB when my owner died & I have been a little nervous and unsure about what will happen to me next. Everyone here has been kind to me though and they promise I will have my happily ever after. I'm a little cautious in new situations, but I warm up quickly and I'm sweet and playful. I like car rides and I'm working on learning how to walk on a leash. If you are looking for a pretty little girl to add to your family, I could be just the dog for you. Be sure to let AGB know you want to meet me, Kyra. I hope to see you soon!
Hi there! My name is Vincent and I'm 1-2 years old and I weigh 65 lbs. I got lost and ended up in a shelter. No one came looking for me. Luckily, AGB arranged to come get me. I'm a happy go lucky boy who just wants to play and have fun. I would be a great fit for an active family that can give me lots of love and exercise. Do you think we could be a match? If so, submit your application to adopt today & ask to meet me, Vincent.
|Willow II - DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND|
Hello there everyone, my name is Willow. I'm an 8 year old girl and I weigh 77 lbs. My owner moved away and surrendered me to a shelter. That was very scary for me and I was pretty sad. The shelter asked if AGB could take me and they came and got me right away. It's a good thing too because they found out I have something called heartworms and I needed to be treated right away. I also had an ear infection and I'm having some issues with one of my eyes so they are sending me to a special eye doctor for dogs. I'm sweet and loving and I enjoy car rides. I want nothing more than to be loved and I will give you 10 times as much love in return. I hope you will submit an application to adopt and ask to meet me, Willow. PS...AGB has set up a special fund for my medical bills. If you could make a donation of any size it sure would make me feel better. Thank you for caring!
Hey Y'all, Beau here. I'm a 4 year old fella weighing in at 87 lbs. I'm looking for a home where I'll be loved and the center of attention. I'm sweet, loving and playful. I know basic commands. I get a little nervous during thunderstorms and tend to pace when they come up but if you help me feel safe, I'm sure I can get over that. I had a hot spot on my hip & a painful ear infection, but AGB's Docs are getting me all fixed up so I'll be good to go to my new forever family soon. Could that be you? If you think I might be a good match for you, submit your adoption application now & be sure to say you want to meet Beautiful Beau.
Hi! I'm Tommy, a 7 month old, 31 lbs. boy. I somehow wound up in a shelter and no one ever came to claim me. AGB agreed to take me in and I am so happy about that! I'm a fun and energetic pup just looking for a forever family to give me the love, attention and adventure that I need. Could that be you? If you think so, I can't wait to meet you! Tell AGB you want to meet Tommy Boy today! See you soon!
|Sylvan - DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND|
Hello friends. My name is Sylvan and I'm a 8 year old girl who weighs 63 lbs. I was found abandoned outside a shelter gate with nothing but a blanket. I have been having some trouble with one of my eyes and AGB is sending me to a special eye doctor so I can get the medical attention I need. I am loving and sweet and I'm housetrained. If you're looking for a pretty and loving girl who can be your best friend I hope you will ask to meet me, Sylvan.
|Rusty IV - ADOPTION PENDING!- FULLY FUNDED|
Hello friends, my name is Rusty. I'm a gentleman of 12 years old and I weigh about 60 lbs. I have been a little sad and confused lately. You see, my owner had to give me up since he travels and traveling a lot is really hard on me. I know I'm an older fella, but I still like to have fun and I am the friendliest, sweetest boy you could meet. I'm very good in the house and I love to go for walks and to snuggle. I am lucky that AGB got me when they did. My ears were hurting something awful and in fact I can't hear a thing. AGB found that I have really bad ear infections in both ears and it has been a chronic problem for me. It probably caused my hearing loss. They also found I have those nasty old heartworms and a touch of arthritis. But thankfully, they are giving me all the medical care I need to feel better and get ready for my forever family. I love everyone! Kids, adults, teenagers, other dogs, even cats don't bother me. If you could find a place for me in your heart and home I would be so happy! PS...I qualify for the Senior to Senior program which means adopters 65 and older don't have to pay an adoption fee to take me home! Also, AGB is accepting donations to help pay for my medical care. Any amount you could give would be appreciated.
6/21/17- Solid white and stunning Juno came to us with a long letter from her family explaining how loved she was, but she and the other family dog couldn't get along. She is now with a very mild mannered Golden Doodle named Carl and two calm and dog savvy parents who let her relax and find her comfort zone with them. She has an enormous yard to run the perimeter of every day, and mom says "You will be happy to know every morning is a love fest, both dogs hit the bed, roll around kissing both of us and each other. A lot of loving, kissing, upside down and licking us. We are very happy with Juno." The second picture shows how happy Juno is too! Thank you JT for the foster.
Hi there! I'm Rania, a 3 year old girl weighing in at 50 lbs. I'm so grateful to be at AGB! You see, I had a home and I thought things were going great but one day my owners moved away. They packed up all their things and just left. They took everything with them but me! I was so scared, but thankfully one of the neighbors took me in and contacted AGB to see if they could help me. Well you know the old softies at AGB couldn't say no, so now here I am! They are making sure I'm healthy & vaccinated. Now I am ready to find a new family, one who will never leave me! I'm a sweet girl and I love to give hugs! I get along well with other dogs and I promise I won't be any trouble at all. So if you're looking for a pretty girl to love forever, I'm the little lady for you! I hope we get to meet soon!
6/15/17 -Cutie Pie Kuzy with the bobbed off tail that never stops wagging, has found his home with another smaller dog and two siblings who are mad about him! Now called Sam, he goes on long walks several times every day in his cute blue bandana and Mom says "He hasn't met a stranger yet!! He loves on everyone he's met. I'm so proud to say this beautiful baby needed a home in hopes more people will look to adopt those in need. He loves to lay in soft, green grass and on our walks he will pick the best, most lush lawn and just rolls on his back for a belly rub! Pure joy!!What a blessing to our family. Thank you Adopt A Golden!" Keep wagging Sam!
|Nigel-ADOPTION PENDING MEDICAL RELEASE-DONATE|
Hello everyone, my name is Nigel. I'm 2 years old and weigh 62 lbs. I came to AGB from a shelter and I have been a very sick boy! I'm being treated for parvo, an illness that could have killed me if AGB hadn't agreed to take care of me. I'm a friendly and sweet boy and I like car rides. I look forward to the day that I am all well and can become a member of a real family. If you're looking for a fine fella like me I hope you'll contact AGB and ask to meet me. PS...My care is very expensive for AGB, but they never complain. I would really love to raise the money to pay for my treatment. If you could donate a few dollars I would really appreciate it.
6/13/17 - Our sweet little Peppie, who is now called Oliver, was adopted by the sweetest, most loving couple ever. We really think they would have adopted 5 dogs if they could have! Little abandoned Oliver will never be afraid and lonely again. He now has two four legged sisters and an adoring mom and dad who could not love him more. They report that he is very smart and that his house training is going great. Enjoy your new life little Oliver!
6/19/17 - All puppy Oralie came to us from the parking lot of a church after being found there with a bullet wound through her neck. She is now our first adoption the the state of Pennsylvania, and as a nod to her roots, she has the new name Alabama, "Allie" for short! Her wonderful young new Dad caught a plane to Atlanta arriving at 7:30 am and rented an SUV to drive to Birmingham. There were several people in the lobby when Allie's trainer walked her in and dropped the leash, and Allie ran straight to her Dad with no hesitation - she knew this was the guy she had been waiting for! After proper introductions and a bit of time in the play yard, they both hopped in the car for the long 14 hour drive home, arriving at 3:30 am on Father's Day. Allie rode like a trouper and has begun the daily life of "spoiled rotten dog" in her new digs. She knew to be good because her Dad sure must love her to spend almost 24 hours just to come get her on a Saturday! Make us a proud representative of the South, Allie, and send lots of updates! Our thanks to VCA Becker and Just Happy Hounds for their loving care of this sweet girl.
|Jax - ADOPTION PENDING MEDICAL RELEASE - DONATE|
Hello, hello - Jax here. I'm a 7 year old fella weighing in at 93 lbs. I was found by a great couple who tried for over a month to find my owners but no one ever came for me. They tell everyone I'm the sweetest thing and they called me a "gentle giant". I love getting petted and I get along great with kids and other dogs. Some dogs thinks this is weird but I love baths and brushing! It feels like doggy massage to me! I like to go for walks, and I never have accidents in the house. AGB tested me and found out I have those nasty heartworms so they are making sure I get the medicine I need to get well. Soon I'll be all better and ready to go to my new family. AGB has found a really good match for me and I am so excited that I get to be with them forever. I am going to concentrate on getting well now. Thanks for caring about me and reading my story. AGB's friends really are Angels to all us orphans. Your friend, Jax. PS...My medicine is pretty expensive. If you could make a donation of any amount to help AGB pay for it, I would really be grateful. Thanks friends!
6/14/17 - Senior Aubie came to us from a home of 11 siblings (7 dogs and 4 cats). He wasn’t very happy when one of the dogs jumped on him and his owner decided it was best to surrender him to AGB. After neutering, treating his skin condition and getting him into foster, his personality blossomed. Aubie gave everyone kisses, love, and immediately found his place on the couch. His adoptive mom says she fell in love with his senior face and put in an adoption application. Her comment was “I’m over the moon for Aubie.” After completing the application process, a meeting was scheduled. His new mom has two small senior dogs and two very friendly cats. They all greeted and welcomed him into their family. He’s now living at Smith Lake, enjoying daily walks, sitting on the porch and watching beautiful sunsets. We’ve also heard he’s made great friends with another golden pup next door! Aubie’s had many AGB angels that helped him along the path to his forever. He asked to give the Intake, Fosters, Medical/Vets, and Adoption Team a high “five paw.”
6/21/-17 - A Good Samaritan found Caddy running in the road and brought him to AGB. He was very timid but after lots of love and TLC from his foster family, Caddy learned what the good life is all about. His new family saw him online and fell in love instantly. They made the very long drive from south Florida to adopt this sweet boy and they report that he is doing great! Caddy will know nothing but love for the rest of his life which is exactly what he deserves.
|Charlie V-ADOPTION PENDING MEDICAL RELEASE-DONATE|
Hello, I'm Charlie. I'm 13 years old and weigh 52 lbs. I know basic commands and I like to play with other dogs. I'm uninterested in cats, but I love kids and everyone I meet. My favorite thing is to be cuddled and petted. I have been known to nudge the hand of anyone who stops petting me and that usually gets me more love. I love belly rubs and getting my fur brushed. I also like to be held in your lap. AGB found out I am heartworm positive and need some dental work done, but they promise to help me get well and matched with just the right family for me. They have a really neat program called Seniors for Seniors that will waive my adoption fee to people who are 65 years or older. I don't care how old my adopters are, as long as they like to pet handsome gold dogs! If you are interested in being my forever family, please let AGB know and they will arrange for us to meet. I'll see you soon! Your friend, Charlie. PS...If you could make a donation to help AGB pay for my medical care I would be so grateful. Thank you!
Hi y’all! Sunni here. I’m about 5 years old and weigh 63 lbs. I was a lonely, lost girl and eventually got picked up by animal control. I was held for about a month, but no one came for me. The people caring for me knew I was not meant for life in a cage, so they started contacting rescues and asking them to take me in. Soon an AGB volunteer came to meet me and she knew I was meant to be with AGB! So she made the arrangements and before long we were on a road trip to a place called Birmingham. I’m a friendly girl and I know some commands like sit. I play well with the other dogs at my foster home. I’m affectionate and playful and I ride well in the car. I love toys and treats and a good back scratch. I would really love a forever family of my own! Are you interested? If so, tell AGB you want to meet me and let’s get started on our new life together, OK? See you soon, your new best friend, Sunni.
|Venus -TURKEY DOG|
Hello friends! My name is Venus, and I’m a 3-year old girl. Some nice people found me in a forest and took me to a shelter. Because I'm such a sweet heart, I was lucky enough to get selected to come to America! Since arriving here I've been staying with a very nice foster family and I've even been to some training classes. I'm house and crate trained and I know basic commands. I'm always on my best behavior in the house. I love people and I really like small dogs. I am fun and I enjoy car rides and walks. If you think I might be the perfect girl for you, contact my friends at AGB and ask to meet me, Venus. OUR THANKS TO VENUS'S ANONYMOUS SPONSOR WHOSE DONATION PAID FOR HER TO COME TO AMERICA.
|Grey - TURKEY DOG-ADOPTION PENDING|
Hi everybody! My name is Grey, and I’m a 2-year old beautiful Golden boy. I came all the way from Turkey to find my forever family. I’m a fun fella and I love to play and go for walks and runs. I love water, so if you have a pool or a lake nearby I would be very happy! I have been getting along well with the other dogs in my foster family. I'm an "alpha" dog, so I get along best with dogs who are more submissive. I like attention, but I'm not a pest about it! I would probably be best for a family without small children as I'm not real crazy about sharing my toys with little ones. I'm housetrained, know my name, come when called and I'll sit and shake for treats. (And I always take treats gently when they're given to me!) I'm a smart boy and easily trained, though I can be stubborn at times. (Who isn't, right?) If you have a high fence, that would be great for me because honestly, even though I haven't tried it yet, getting over a 4 foot fence would not be a challenge for a young, healthy guy like me. I'm not a digger and I've been left at home uncrated with the other dog several times and I'm always a good boy. If you think I would be a good family member for you why don't you submit an application to AGB and ask to meet me soon? I'll be right here. Just waiting for you. Your new BFF, Grey.
