Ruddy-ADOPTION PENDING
Hello, I'm Ruddy and I'm READY! Ready to start a new year and a new life with you. I am the last new AGB orphan of 2020 and I want to be the very first to wish you a happy 2021! I am a beautiful 3 year old neutered boy that weighs 87 pounds. I'm heart worm negative, vaccinated, microchipped, and in really good health. The vet who checked me out said I was super sweet and well behaved. I must admit I didn't happily share my toys with the other girl pups I lived with but generally I am great with people, cats and other dogs. Since I'm still a youngster, you might understand that I believe all the toys are mine. I'm guessing that if my new owners were the 'top dog' I'd learn that was not okay and that other pups in the household can play with "my" toys. As you can see, I'm quite handsome and I'm very playful and I love attention. I love swimming and rides in the car. I know "sit", "come" and "down". I normally sleep in a crate but I wouldn't mind sleeping with you (if that's okay?) or nearby. Of course, I'm house trained and will let you know I need to go out with a polite bark. Are you ready for Ruddy? I'm ready for you!

Bonnie - ADOPTION PENDING
In Scotland - where Golden Retrievers first originated - a pretty girl is called a 'bonny lass'. I guess that's why they call me Bonnie. I'm a pretty girl. A lady never discloses her age but I might be somewhere around six or so but if you ask me directly, I'll say five...or maybe even four. That's my prerogative, hee hee. They also say I need to tell you how much I weigh. All right, 67 pounds. I'm also vaccinated, spayed, microchipped and heart worm negative. I'm in good health but I do take thyroid medicine. Of course I'm house trained. I lost my mate - my soulmate dog - a while ago and, since then, I'd rather not be around other dogs that much. I'd love to be your one and only in an adult home that doesn't have kids. I love grown-ups! I'm having a lovely time in my foster home; they say I'm great and very lovable and sweet but I'd rather be 'home' for Christmas. Is anybody looking for a brown eyed 'bonny lass' to snuggle with near the Christmas tree? If so, than please ask about Bonnie. xox

Lulabelle - ADOPTION PENDING
THANK YOU KINDLY TO ALL WHO DONATED TO MY MEDICAL FUND! "So, we'll go no more a roving". Hello, my name is Lulabelle and I'm 5 years old. I've been a wandering girl for most of my life but I think my wanderlust is gone for good. I've discovered a warm, soft bed at my foster parents and I get to sleep indoors with them. This is the life and I'd be real happy to live like this for always. I've always been allowed to roam free and I lived outside. Recently, I was kept on a chain because I can be a bit of an escape artist; I can go over and under fences when I get lonely and want some attention. I am a very sweet Golden girl and I'm quite easy going. I'm partly house-trained and I know the "sit" command. When I got transported to the AGB vet, I was quite anxious because I haven't been to a vet in a long time and I really didn't like being in a kennel alone. I've been diagnosed with heart worms and my coat was extremely matted. I've had one litter of puppies but I've been spayed. Strangers and new situations can scare me at first until I get to know you and feel safe. AGB got me into a foster home right away and I'm really happy now. They say I am a "love bug" and a joy to be around. So, this wandering girl has decided that life with a forever family is number one on my Christmas wish list.

Bentley V
Like the vintage luxury vehicle, I am named Bentley. As you might imagine, I like my plush comforts like a warm spot on the sofa with a pillow to lay my head on. The word that best describes me is "sweet". I'm a 9 year old fellow and I was very distressed about my new situation. I escaped my backyard and wandered on some other dog's territory and a scuffle ensued. Gosh, it was just a harmless jaunt. My owners called AGB and very reluctantly surrendered me because they did not want me to escape again and be in a bad situation. I am overall healthy, neutered, vaccinated, and heart worm negative. I weigh 90 pounds. I love people, I'm curious about the cats in my foster home, and I like most dogs although sometimes little dogs test my patience. I'm hoping there are folks out there who can't wait to spend time with a mature Golden gentleman like me who loves life, the occasional (supervised) jaunt, and all the little luxuries of home. I hope you'll ask about me, Bentley.

Mac - ADOPTED
Dec 31, 2020 - Mac spent the first half of his life living on a farm; then he was a family dog for a couple of years. His first owners said he is a great dog but then he wasn't fond of being around little kids. He is the beautiful pup with the cream coat. When his new family heard about Mac, they thought they would see if he would be a fit for them. And he was! Mac was so happy to learn that he would have a brother about the same age. He and Finn have become good friends already. According to his new Mom - "From the first night we had him, he decided the chair in our bedroom was his. He and Finn (our four year old golden) have finally settled into a great routine of wrestling and playing. And he takes his job of defending against aerial attacks (birds flying over) very seriously." ******************************************** "Ole MACdonald had a farm, E I E I O"! Hello, my name is MAC and I spent the first half of my life living on a farm. Then I joined a family for a couple of years and now I'm an AGB pup. I'm a 3 and a half year old boy. My owners said I am a great dog but recently I decided I'm not all that fond of little people crowding around me so my owners thought I might be better in a home without small kids. I'm a handsome pup with a creamy white coat and a beautiful face. I'm also house trained; I will whine at the door. I know the "sit" command. I'm with a nice foster who has other big dogs like me! I'm a bit scared of storms. When I lived on the farm, I liked to roam around and I can jump fences too. I like other dogs and occasionally a cat as well. I am neutered, heart worm negative, vaccinated and microchipped. I sure am hoping that there's a somebody or somebodies out there that would love to have a handsome looker like me at the end of their leash and we can be best buddies!

Journey
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR FULLY FUNDING MY MEDICAL THERMOMETER! "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step". After being a stray, I've started a new life as an AGB pup and I think I've just had a lucky break. They've named me Journey. I'm about two years old, give or take a year - who knows exactly. I weigh 55 pounds and I've had all my shots. I favor my right front leg a little and the AGB vets found some arthritic changes, but I'm now on a joint supplement which is making me feel so much better! The AGB person who transported me called me a "sweetie" and I have a patient and kind foster. I am affectionate, sweet, and good with other dogs and even a cat or two. I've had some hard knocks for a young boy but they tell me that "my luck has changed" and soon I'll be somebody's special boy and live in the house and have my own bed. I can hardly believe it. My journey is going to take me somewhere special and I'm ready to take that first step!

Lulu - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! LULU UPDATE (NOV 23RD, 2020): Unfortunately, Lulu will need another Patellaa Stabilization surgery on her other leg. Poor little girl; she will have to go through this procedure after she recovers from the first one. LULU UPDATE (NOV 5TH, 2020): Poor little Lulu. While caring for this year old puppy, her fosters noticed a popping sound in her right leg and afterward she would not put weight on it. Her knee slides out of place. When this happened a couple of times, she was immediately taken to the vet. She also was evaluated by VSB who recommended 'Patella Stabilization Surgery'. Little Lulu had the surgery on November 5th. She faces six weeks of strict confinement in a crate or a very small room. Many thanks to her fosters and we wish Lulu a speedy recovery and hope that only this one knee will be affected. This little girl deserves a wonderful, pain free life. ********************************************** Merriam-Webster defines Lulu as "one that is remarkable or wonderful". Other sources say lulu is "an amazing girl", "precious", "pearl". Sounds wonderful, doesn't it? Well, my name is Lulu so I'm hoping that you all will think I'm remarkable and wonderful and a precious pearl. I'm a 1 year old girl and I weigh 46 pounds. Still a puppy, I have lots of energy. I'm cute as a button with a sweet face. I'm house trained and I do understand some commands like "sit", "shake", "stay" and waiting on food. I like cats and dogs. Sometimes I can be a little timid before I get to know you but we'll make fast friends quickly. Of course, I need to continue some puppy training so I don't jump up and learn that toys are okay to mouth but not anything else. I'm spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heart worm negative. I got surrendered because my former house didn't have a fenced yard and they wanted me to live outside. Everybody decided that a new home was just the ticket since sweet, slight little girls like me need to live inside and have a fenced in yard. The vet looked me over and I am overall healthy with a great personality. I hope I will steal your heart and become your precious pearl. xox, Lulu
