Comet
Hello, I'm Comet. Just a little bit of puppy adorable, they tell me. No, better make that a whole lot of puppy adorable! I've just arrived at AGB; the human baby of the family I lived with was allergic. The AGB folks say they can't think of enough good adjectives to describe me: sweet, adorable, precious, gentle, etc. etc. etc. That's funny! I'm a 9 month old flat coated retriever with a beautiful black coat with a touch of white on my chest and a gorgeous big blocky head which people seem to go ga-ga over. I weigh 68 pounds and I'm heart worm negative. I've been vaccinated and I'm just about to be neutered and microchipped (so you can always find me!). I love other dogs. I'm still a puppy and naturally need a little training but I've been told I will be an excellent companion. I'm house trained and crate trained. I'm walking on a leash and I like it. I love to play and eat but the very, very best thing I love is belly rubs. You give belly rubs? Then I'm your boy! Please don't wait; I want to spend every puppy moment learning to love you and be your wonderful pup for the rest of my life.

Clifford II - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY. Hi, there! My name is Clifford, just like the famous Clifford in the Clifford the Giant Red Dog books. Except I'm not famous and I'm certainly not giant. And my most recent adventure was as a shelter dog. I'm around 3 years old and I only weigh 56 pounds. There would be lots of room for me at your house cause I'm not a giant red dog. But I'm an active fellow and I sure would like to go on some adventures of my own. Maybe someone could write some of those adventures in a book once I get adopted and have a loving family to have adventures with. I'm cute as a button with a handsome reddish coat and I'm looking for a good time. So far, I've lived outdoors; not in a house. I'd like that to change. A bed of my own in the house would be very, very nice. Medically, I'm scheduled to be neutered and also start heart worm treatments. While everyone enjoys their hot dogs and BBQs on the 4th of July weekend, I'll be waiting at the vet kennel to get my medical stuff done and wishing for my own Independence Day. Maybe you could hurry that process along by donating for my heart worm treatment? Even if my adventures never get written in a book, you and I could have the time of our lives as companions. xox, Clifford (the small red dog)

Dolly II
Hello, I'm Dolly, a dream girl with a really bad haircut. I mean bad; this beautician shaved all my beautiful white fur from my back and belly (hope nobody tipped 'em). I feel naked but, thank goodness, I know my hair will grow back and I'll be as gorgeous as ever. My story is not unusual. I was found wandering and someone took me to an animal hospital a little bit worse for wear. I've had some litters of puppies. I don't remember how I got lost from them. I'm just over three years old and I weigh 61 pounds. AGB came and got me because they know a regal girl like me with beautiful dark eyes and a sweet disposition needs a good home and a happy life. They think I'll be snapped up. Anyway, I'm sure hoping so. Fingers crossed! They don't know a whole lot about me yet but they said I was very nice and quiet; a darling girl who just wants to be loved and petted. I've now been vaccinated but they're waiting for blood test results before I get spayed and microchipped. They'll also find out whether I'm heart worm positive or negative. Then I'll be ready for a new home. I could be the dream girl in your life.

Bebe - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY. Hello! My name is Bebe, which as you might know, stands for 'baby' which is a sweet term of endearment. Well, I am still pretty much baby a baby myself; just haven't been treated like a beloved little girl. I'm probably not quite 2 years old but I've already had a litter or two of puppy babies. I'm a beautiful Golden girl who, when not nursing my little ones, has been tied out in the yard for my short life. I've been surrendered to AGB and they've promised they're going to make sure I get medically taken care of by being spayed, vaccinated and all the other medical stuff pups like me need to thrive. I also have to be treated for heart worms. I weigh 60 pounds. I'm like a diamond in the rough; I've never been socialized but I love attention and I love people. I got a lot of potential to be one of those lovable, charming, and gorgeous Golden girls that folks adore. I need some training on walking on a leash and probably some house training. But I love car rides. I might be a little shy at first but I'll warm up quickly. I would very, very much love to be your 'baby'. xox, Bebe

Henry II - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY. I'm very glad to meet you. I'm Henry - Henry the second, in fact. I'm 8 months old. All the folks take one look into my soulful eyes and they say "Henry, you're a heartthrob!" Or maybe I just tug at their heartstrings. Being a heartthrob wasn't enough to keep me from being taken to a shelter. I have an old injury from being previously hit by a car and it's very painful to walk on. Right now the kind folks at AGB and the vets are carrying me which they don't mind because I don't weigh much.. I also have a tick borne illness that they're treating. I'm pretty sure I'm going to see a specialist about my leg so I can get it fixed and be pain free. That would be nice. I've been vaccinated and I was already neutered. I've been kind of quiet because I don't feel my best but I'm a very, very sweet puppy boy. I sure would like to have somebody around who loved me. I have a beautiful, long shiny coat and a nice touch of white fur on my chest. I hope once I get fixed up and am prancing around on all four legs, pain free, that somebody nice will want to adopt and love on a heartthrob like me forever.

Bozo
Hi, there! Look, I gots a toy; it's a stuffed owl and now I have something that is mine. I'm only around 1 year old and I've already been in a shelter but nobody has given me a toy before. This lady picked me up from the shelter and drove me to Birmingham and said I was an AGB pup now. She hugged and kissed me and that was really, really nice. I could use some more of that! My name is Bozo. I weigh 49 pounds and I'm heart worm negative. I got all my vaccinations and I'll be neutered and microchipped soon. I like people, dogs and cats...and stuffed owls. I am very sweet, strong, and just need a little training and patience. I will bark for treats (love them!) and sing you the song of my people. I'm a fun lovin', handsome boy with a tinge of black on my tail and ears. Makes me look distinguished, don't you think? Anyway, I'm very proud I have a toy. I can't imagine how proud I will be to have a family and a home of my own! Make a boy's dream come true, won't you? Ask AGB about Bozo!

Bacall/Trevi - ADOPTED
July 8, 2019 - Beautiful Bacall, just like the movie star, is now Trevi like the fountain. She has the softest, sweetest eyes and her wishes came true when new Mom walked into her life. She immediately rolled over for a belly rub and said "take me home!", then hopped into the back of the car and never looked back. We hope to see you at some regional events Trevi, and enjoy your new life! *********************************************** Remember that iconic line Lauren Bacall had in a movie "If you want me, just whistle. You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow." Well, I would LOVE to hear somebody whistle for me and I'm as beautiful a girl as that actress so that's what they named me - Bacall. I was found at a shelter and got rescued by AGB. Now I certainly could use a few good meals and gain a little weight and get a glossy fur coat. I have adorable little white toes as if I had a manicure/pedicure. Like Bacall, I have a presence both regal and sweet. I'm very friendly with medium energy. I am 2 years old and weigh 51 pounds. I've just gotten vaccinated and had a full medical check-up and I still have to be spayed. I am heart worm negative. I think good things are coming around for me. You know, if you whistle for me and want to call me your girl, I'll come a'running! Any Bogarts out there?

Quinton
"You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quin(ton)!" Hello, friends, my name is Quinton and I've just arrived at AGB from a shelter. I am so, so happy to be here in Birmingham although I did just get a lot of vaccinations and also got neutered. You see, I'm a 1 year old boy who's just about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. I've been told AGB is looking for a home and a family for me to love. Yippee! I cannot contain my excitement. I weigh 48 pounds and I am a black Flat Coated Retriever and about as good looking as a pup can get. I'm super friendly and right now, a little like a bull in china shop. So I do need some training until I get out of my puppy ways because nobody cared enough to teach me before. I'll grow into a marvelous and handsome companion, won't I? I'm hoping that when my new family sees me "everybody's going to jump for joy!" (Thanks to Bob Dylan for writing a song about me). Please ask about me, Quinton, okay?
