Dogs highlighted in blue are in need of a foster family

Vienna - Adoption Pending
Hello! I must be a well traveled girl with a name like Vienna. And I have traveled a bit but it's been on my own; lost. A Good Samaritan found me in the road and contacted all the nearby shelters but had no luck finding my owner. I'm a sweet and loving girl and I get along well with other pups. I was real glad when AGB came and rescued me. I'm only 9 months old - I need a family to take care of me. And AGB has found one that wants me to be their girl. So even if my traveling days aren't behind me, it will be me and my new family on the road together. I've got my toys and chew bones packed. Happy trails!

Strider - SPECIAL NEEDS - Donate
PLEASE DONATE TO MY FUND! CLICK "MORE" TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! I'm Strider. I'm very handsome and I'm almost 3 years old. I want to be a very good boy but I don't always know how to be. If I'm in pain or threatened, I might growl or seem to be mean. I need help learning to settle down because I can react in fear to new situations. But AGB, along with a wonderful trainer, is going to show me the way. I have a loving soul and I love my dog buddies and my adult family members but I need an experienced adopter to help me gain confidence and trust. AGB wants to do everything possible to find me a perfect fit in a new home. Would you help me? Please click on the "Donate" button on the next page after you click "More" below. And, once my training is done, maybe you could see that I could be your special fellow. Hopefully, Strider.

Bianca Jane - ADOPTION PENDING
Hello, my name is Bianca Jane. I'm 4 years old and I weigh 74 pounds. Did you know that Bianca means "fair" and "white"? That does describe me - with all my pretty white fur and my sweet face. I was on my own wandering before I came to AGB. In fact, some very nice AGB volunteers and some local neighbors spent some time catching me and bringing me to safety. I'm so glad they did. I've been living with a foster family and their pups. I like to play with other dogs. I'm ready to take the step to go to my forever home. I sure wish some nice retired couple or working from home folks would want a beautiful, submissive girl like me so we'd get to spend most of our time together. Please ask about me. I'd like to be your sweetheart. Love, Bianca Jane

Simba - Adoption Pending
Hey, my name is Simba. Yep, just like the character in The Lion King - Roar! Ha! Ha! No, actually I'm not a lion although I am golden. My Daddy was a Great Pyrenees and my Momma was a Golden Retriever so I'm quite a good looking fellow. I'm a big old sweetheart weighing 79 pounds and I'm 5 years old. I've been an outdoor dog all my life but if you teach me a few social graces, I definitely would like the comforts of being an indoor beloved pet. I love to play and run and love on people. I like other dogs and I like to chew on toys (hide your cushions). There's a family that has promised to let me come live with them and I think they'll give me lots of chew toys! I'm ready to go. Would you consider adopting some of my other orphan friends? They need a home too!

Scout - Donate
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK "MORE" TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! Folks, my name is Scout. Maybe that's because I'm 'scouting' for a new forever home with a loving family. I'd sure like that fine! A good Samaritan took care of me after I wandered up to their home six months ago; they couldn't find my owner. I'm a two year old boy weighing 50 pounds. I have heart worms but I'm getting treated for that. As you can see, I'm kind of a 'brunette' Golden which makes me very distinctive. Come see me, come meet me! I'm a sweet boy and I ride well in the car. Let's spend the rest of our lives together!

Buzz - Donate
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK "MORE" TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! Hello, my name is Buzz. I'm about 3 or 4 years old, handsome as can be, and I weigh 41 pounds - not too big. Somebody moved and didn't take me along. They didn't give me heart worm preventative either. I can't figure out why - because I'm very sweet and loving and I already know basic commands. I really like riding in the car but I especially like belly rubs! If you think you'd like a boy that will give you kisses in exchange for belly rubs, get in touch with AGB right away. Okay?

Twinkle - Donate
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK "MORE" TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! My name is Twinkle and I should be a "star"! I'm 3 years old and weigh a petite 48 pounds. I had been living at a Flea Market with my babies (they've all been rescued too) before AGB rescued me. Somebody very nice fed us regularly but I've been on my own for a long time. I don't like being put in crates or cages very much; I'm used to being able to move around. My rescuers said I was sweet, submissive and lovable. And I sure would like for my person to be around to spend time with me. I'd just love them to the moon and back. I'm pretty sure I would sparkle like a "diamond in the sky" if someone special would give me a home and be my family. Please ask AGB about me. Love, Twinkle

Murphy
I'm Murphy, a 2 year old boy who weighs 50 pounds. I'm neutered, up to date on vaccinations and ready for my new home. I'd love to live in a calm home with a special somebody who would be by my side a lot. Before coming to AGB, I was dropped off at a shelter when my family moved away. You can imagine how scared I was. If you look into my big brown eyes, you'd see how a youngster like me would like some reassurance that I won't be abandoned again. Small children might overwhelm me. I'm very sweet and smart and looking for my forever home and companion. Please let it be you. I'm waiting.

Butter - SPECIAL NEEDS - Donate
PLEASE DONATE TO MY FUND! CLICK "MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! Hello! Here I am - show dog material in the looks department with a few divo (male diva) qualities - I'm just not fond of other dogs; cats either. I weigh 56 pounds and I'm 3 years old. I'm a gorgeous boy, who sets hearts aflutter, but I would prefer to be your one and only. At the shelter where I was found, I felt the need to protect myself from other dogs. I adore people and I would love you so much. I promise to be a good and faithful companion. AGB is sending me off to finishing school (for dogs). They sure could use a little help with the cost of my boarding and my past medical treatment for heart worms if you would be kind enough to donate by clicking on the "Donate" button on the next page after you click "More" below. Thankfully, I'm cured of heart worms now but still need to finish paying for the treatment. You might be the perfect person for a very special pup like me; please contact AGB and let's get together!

Winnie
Hello! I'm winsome Winnie and I'm only 1 year old. I weigh 29 pounds. I'm definitely a pretty little southern girl - I was discovered in a shelter in Selma. Somebody from AGB picked me up and said I rode really well in the car. I even slept most of the trip so I guess I really like road trips! Wouldn't you like to take a sweet little girl like me on road trips with you permanently? If so, please contact AGB and ask for Winnie. p.s. I do not think I like cats.
