Levi - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! Hold onto your hats, folks, there's a new pup in town (Birmingham)! Hello, everybody, my name is Levi and they're saying I'm a senior boy. I don't look like it and I don't act like it - a big, good-looking guy like me is in his prime. No white face either; just a distinctive white tuft of hair on my chest. I have a curly coat of reddish fur that the ladies love to run their fingers through and a grin that will steal your heart. Someone called me "a lump of love"! I am in a bit of a predicament. My former owner took me to a shelter and said he had no time for me. Well, I guess he didn't, because I am heart worm positive, I need to be neutered and microchipped, and I had to get all my vaccinations. But, thank goodness, AGB came and got me right away and promised to find me a new home with somebody that WILL have time for me and take care of me. Sounds great! I weigh 69 pounds, have a typical golden personality, and I'm just real comfortable getting comfortable with you. I'm a little afraid of storms but lots of us Goldens are. I'm ready to get this medical stuff done and hit the road with you! I could be your new pup in 'your' town.

Sharley - ADOPTED
May 14, 2019 - Sharley had a bit of notoriety upon intake; she was adopted four years ago to a person who lives in a loft downtown and shortly after adoption, she slipped her lead on a walk and went missing for months. AGB had a posse of volunteers looking for her all of that time and finally one of our eagle-eyed people spotted her inside a fenced area not far from her loft home. She went back to her owner, but now four years later he relinquished her due to being overwhelmed because he adopted two other dogs. But, lucky for her, our volunteer Jeri had been waiting a couple of years for a small, sweet dog that would get along with her little Poodle and Sharley has fit in like a glove with both of them. Jeri says she is a gem, and almost immediately sent a text saying "Cash the check! We love her!!" Have a good life Sharley in your new, safe home! ********************************************* My name is Sharley; a pint sized, sweet and shy, Golden girl. I weigh 32 pounds and I'm just four years old. The Urban Dictionary says that a girl named Sharley is "a beautiful, funny, amazing, perfect girl with long beautiful hair". I do have a long beautiful white coat tinged with gold; my crowning glory. I'm a family girl surrendered because my owner had too many dogs to care for and I am missing having a family. I'm good with other dogs, have no experience with cats, and I can be a little timid around new folks but I am one sweetheart of a girl. I'm heart worm negative, vaccinated, microchipped and spayed. I'm so ready to get my new home. Don't you want a sweet little powderpuff girl pup like me?

Hosea - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! UPDATE 5/8/19: My surgery is now done. Wonderful news! The masses they removed were benign. I'm recovering nicely and my heart worm treatment has begun. I am one lucky and happy boy! ********************************************* Bless my stars! Here I am. My name is Hosea which actually means "salvation or help". And I have been helped and saved by AGB and I think myself a lucky boy! I'm 10 years old and I weigh 74 pounds. The last thing I can remember clearly is that I was wandering on my own in Tuscaloosa and got brought in as a stray. I hope my owner didn't abandon me; that would break my heart. I have quite a few medical concerns. So if any pup needed help or salvation, I surely do! I haven't been cared for properly for a while; I'm heart worm positive, I wasn't microchipped, I wasn't neutered, and I sure need some love now! I have some masses and I'm scheduled for surgery very soon. Everybody who has met me thinks I'm a wonderful Golden boy with an amazing disposition; a sweetheart. I love everybody except maybe cats. I have a sweet spirit. I'm not a young pup but I hope somebody will love me and help me have a wonderful 'rest of my life'. AGB and my vets think I deserve that. I hope you'll help me. Salvation means "deliverance or preservation from harm" and that's what this second chance means to me.

Candy II/Carley - ADOPTED
May 13, 2019 - Sweet faced Candy is now called Carley and is charming everyone she meets everywhere she goes. That's not a surprise as she stole the show at our last Meet and Greet offering free belly rubs to anybody with a willing hand. Her new mom was a founder of a dog therapy group in her town and hopes Candy will be suitable for that work, but if not, that's okay too. She is happily chasing squirrels in her large back yard and living the life of a Princess. Carley, you are a great ambassador for AGB so keep up the good work! ********************************************** I hope one look at my face has people singing "I Want Candy!", like the song from Bow Wow Wow. Because my name is Candy and I'm looking for a new home. My former life is a bit of a mystery because I was just picked up and taken to a northern Alabama shelter. AGB quickly came and got me and drove me to Birmingham. I'm about 4 to 6 years old and I weigh 58 pounds and I'm a pretty blonde girl. I must have been somebody's baby because I'm spayed, heart worm negative, and healthy. I've been vaccinated and microchipped. I'm friendly and I've got a wonderful smile. I do need a little bit of leash training. I'm sweet as candy. The lyrics of the song say "Someday soon I'll make you mine; then I'll have candy all the time". Don't you want Candy all the time? Please contact AGB and ask about making me yours! xox

Bear IV - DONATE - ADOPTION PENDING
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! A long while back, Elvis sang a song called "I Wanna Be Your Teddy Bear". I love that song; it's exactly what I want to say to you. My name is Bear IV and I weigh 69 pounds. I am one dang good looking golden boy! I'm around 6 years old and, all of a sudden, I find myself without my owner and my home, and I'm telling you that makes a fellow pretty anxious about what's next! I got surrendered to AGB and those folks told me they'll make sure they find a new family for me that will "cuddle me real tight" and never let me go. That sounds good. I'm real scared of thunderstorms so I hope I get cuddled then. But first, I've got a few medical things to deal with - like neutering, worm treatment, dental work, and I keep hearing some stuff about x-raying something that should have descended on this boy but didn't. Holy Cow, I'm not even gonna think about that one. The good news is I am heart worm negative, microchipped and now vaccinated. You know, I don't think I'm going to be calm and happy until I find my new home with folks who want a Teddy Bear. "Jus wanna be your teddy bear". I hope you'll ask AGB about me.

Charlie VI
Hello, folks! I'm Charlie VI and I'm an AGB orphan. I'm four years old and weigh 38 pounds. I'm vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and heart worm negative. Spring is here and the weather in Alabama is wonderful. I'm cherishing a dream that this Spring I'll be outside sitting with my new parent(s) enjoying the sunshine with them. Right now, I waiting for my new family to make an appearance and I'm getting anxious. Although they treat me wonderful, I'm in boarding. I'm worried that folks might be bypassing me because I'm a tripod. That doesn't stop me one bit! I'm as mobile as the next pup and I deserve a happy home as well as my four legged friends. I'm very handsome, energetic, and smart. I'd love to go "home"! I’d really love to find a pup parent or a couple (no kids, please) that would cherish me as an only pup and spend the time training me that others haven't had the time to do. Would you please contact AGB and ask about me, Charlie VI, or fill out an AGB application? I'd be ever so grateful. Senior rate could apply. Don't you think it's time for 'Good Time Charlie' to have a good time?
