Dogs highlighted in blue are in need of a foster family

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!!

Felix - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY. My name is Felix and I'm a 10 year old gentleman. I weigh 35 pounds and probably should weigh a bit more. Some really kind people at an East Alabama shelter, where I found myself, called AGB to find me a new, wonderful home. I guess my former owner didn't care too much what happened to me but all the shelter workers and the AGB folk fell in love with me because they say I have such a great temperament and I'm quiet and docile and I just melted under their touch. Perhaps I should be called "Mr. Precious" instead of Felix. I'm quite spry and I'm very smart. I'm also cute and I look younger than my years. A lyric of a John Lennon song is "Nobody loves you when you're old and grey" so I'm really glad to hear that I'm lovable even though I'm a Golden with cloudy eyes and I don't always hear that great. I got bad arthritis and the vets have started me on pain management medicine. I'm heart worm positive so I need to be treated and that can be tough on an older fellow like me. I also have a grape sized subcutaneous chest mass that needs a fine needle aspiration to rule out any bad diagnosis. I guess you could say I can't catch a break but, for an older fellow, I'm happy to nuzzle against you, spend time with you and fall in love for the last time in my life with you. Maybe take a chance on me? You won't regret it!

Jackson IV - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! It's 2019! Have you ever heard that song "Celebration" ("We're gonna have good time tonight....")? Hi, my name is Jackson (the fourth of that name at AGB). The AGB folks tell me that all the pups named Jackson are pretty special and I'm no exception! I am ready to strike a pose, meet some people, and have a good time! A big sweetheart that anybody would love! I'm a beautiful Golden boy, 4 years old, and I weigh 65 pounds. I love attention and I've been told I have a wonderful, friendly smile. I know some basic commands and I love car rides. But I'm special in a kind of sad way too. I was found running loose with another pup and taken to a vet clinic for 10 days and then transferred to the Florence shelter. Fact is, I was hit by a car last year and my leg did not heal properly. I was not taken to the vet so my left front foreleg is nonfunctional now with severe muscle atrophy. Dragging my leg for this whole year has caused multiple abrasions and infections. It didn't have to be this way. There's no fixing my leg to be usable now so the vets have recommended amputation. And that's not all. I have heart worms and need treatment; I need to be neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. Take care of your pups, folks! I have a great attitude to life but it would have been so much sweeter if I had been taken care of in the first place! I'll get through all this horrible medical stuff; I'm a trooper, and then AGB has promised they'll find me a wonderful new home where I will be taken care of and cherished like a Golden pup should be. Sounds great to me! I'm hoping some nice folks will donate to my medical fund so I can get started on my new life. Maybe that new life will be with you?

Cole - ADOPTION PENDING
Hello there, folks! I'm here - just in time for winter - your own personal snow dog! If we lived up north and not in Alabama, you probably wouldn't even see me in the snow except for my sweet grin and dark eyes and nose. I'm Cole and I'm a 4 year old fellow. I've been called a big lump of love which sounds nice, doesn't it? I'm a mix of Great Pyrenees and some Golden Retriever and I weigh 51 pounds. I've been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and I'm heart worm negative. AGB took me in from a Birmingham shelter and now I'm ready to find a home of my own. I passed all my assessment tests with flying colors - good with dogs and people; they said I was "sweet, loving and beautiful". That's a pretty good combination for a snow dog. I'm in a nice foster home right now but I sure would love to be in your home. So I'm thinking you don't want to spend another winter without me, do you? My name is Cole and yes, I'm a merry ole soul. Come meet me!

Topper - ADOPTION PENDING
Top of the day to ya; my name is Topper. A cutie-patootie 2 year old pup that found myself at a Northern Alabama shelter until somebody from AGB came and picked me up and drove me to Birmingham. I was very excited. You see, I got lots of potential; I'm quite a good looking boy. I weigh 49 pounds, I'm vaccinated, microchipped, neutered and heart worm negative - I'm all around healthy. My foster family says I am so sweet; perfect in a crate and totally house trained. I love to play with my toys and toss them around and pounce on them. That's hours of fun for me. I'm very good with other dogs. I'm eager to learn. I'm enthusiastic about life and people; I'm excited about my future! I'm a nice boy and very sweet and would love, love, love to have a family. Come meet me and let's fall in love!

Monty - ADOPTED
Feb 8, 2019 - At long last, cutie Monty was adopted by a co-worker of Monty's foster family. It was amazing that he wasn't snatched up when he first arrived but fate has a way of waiting until the perfect home comes along for the orphans. Monty now has a sweet doggie sister - as well as a human brother and sister - and mom says "We are thrilled. I am amazed at how fast both dogs are getting along. Monty is so sweet and Zoey is learning a lot from him." We are very happy for Monty! ****************************************** Who's a good boy? I'm a good boy....and handsome too! Blonde and lean and looking for love. I come from a northern Alabama shelter and they've named me Monty which means "mountain" or "of the mountain". I've had some mountains to climb in my four short years. First of all, I'm either a stray or I was taken to a shelter but I knew my luck might be changing when some fellow picked me up and drove me to Birmingham. I'll be waiting for those folks who will take one look at me, fall in love and take me home permanently with them. I'm in foster care right now and LOVE to play with my foster brothers and any kids that will let me talk to them - I'm a talker! Here's some more information about me. I'm neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. I weigh 48 pounds. I'm a sweet soul who is very laid back. Can we please make the mountains in my life the kind that we can go hiking on together? Now, doesn't that sound like fun! Woof, Monty
