SCARLETT
Hi there everpawdy! I’m Scarlett, a 2-year-old little girl weighing in at 49 lbs. I’m a sweet, smart, and friendly little lady just waiting for my perfect match. I’m a real love bug who has been described as “a Velcro dog”, which I’m told means I want to be at my human’s side all the time. Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with that! I get along well with other doggies, but I have been known to chase the kitty cats. I play well with bigger kids but have not been around the little ones. I really don’t like to be in crates as they make me nervous. I love car rides, walks, swimming, and to play (a lot!). I get pretty excited, and I can run and jump well, so I would be best suited to play in a yard with a high fence. Since I’m still young, I’m hoping to find someone who can give me some exercise and attention. I know basic commands like sit, come, and off, but I know there is so much more you can teach a smart girl like me. If you are looking for your next “best girl” and you like red heads, I might be the one for you!

ELROY - PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND!
I’m Elroy, a 2.5-year-old boy, and I weigh about 40 lbs. I was lost and alone and ended up at a shelter who contacted AGB to help me. Luckily for me, AGB sent a wonderful volunteer to get me and took me in. You can tell, I am quite handsome! I am also affectionate, friendly, have never met a stranger, and I walk well on a leash. Being on my own with no medical care was not good for me though, and I have been told I have something called “heartworms.” Heartworms are serious business and had I not been rescued, I may not have survived. But my doctor and AGB friends have told me not to worry. They are giving me all the love, care, and medicine I need to recover and get healthy. In the meantime, while I am getting treatments and taking it easy, the volunteers are working hard to match me with the perfect forever family. Could that be you? If you are interested in me, just submit an adoption application on the AGB website. And if you can make a donation to help with my Vet bill, that would be awesome!

COLT - ADOPTION PENDING
Howdy y’all, I’m Colt. I know, I know, that’s what they call a baby horse, but I swear I’m a dog. And not nearly as big as a horse! I’m a 4 year old boy and I weigh 95 lbs. I got a new owner recently, but sadly she found out she was allergic to my dander. She decided to contact AGB because she knew they would not rest until they matched me with my perfect forever family. I am playful and easy going, and have been described as the best cuddler and the sweetest pup ever. I admit, it’s true! I get along with every person I have ever met, cats, and other dogs. I LOVE toys and will often pick up several in my mouth and then try to “talk” to you! I am housetrained and I like swimming and car rides. About the only thing I don’t like is storms! I really like to cuddle during those bad old storms, because that makes me feel calmer and safe. If all this sounds like a good fit for your family, I really hope you’ll put in an adoption application and set up a meeting with me soon.

ASLAN - ADOPTION PENDING
My name is Aslan and I am a handsome, 15 month old fella. I am smart and friendly and like to play. In fact, I can usually be found with a toy or blanket in my mouth because, well, I’m a Golden and we like to carry stuff around. I am house and crate trained and not destructive in the house, so if you leave your shoes out, they’ll be safe with me! I can get excited to see you sometimes and may bark or jump a little, so I hope my new family will work with me on that and also on walking nicely on a leash. I really do want to please and I’m a fast learner, so with a little work and patience, I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it soon. I have not had experience with other dogs or cats, but my new foster brother is teaching me a lot about playing with other pups. I will fit in best in a family without young children. I still have some puppy in me, so my foster Mom has been known to call me a “big goofball”. I think that must be code for “adorable”. If you are ready to meet your new best friend, come meet me!

KYRA - ADOPTION PENDING
Hello! I am Kyra, a 3.5 year old Golden girl. I am a “fluffy” 95 lbs. and I have recently been put on a diet to help me regain my girlish figure. I am a sweet, pretty, lady who is housetrained and gets along well with other dogs. I have not been around cats. I’m a friendly, family dog. I like to swim! Perhaps if we swim, walk, and play it will help me lose some of the weight that has been slowing me down. If you are interested in adding a gorgeous gal like me to your family, just submit an application. I look forward to meeting you soon! Your friend, Kyra.

MAC II - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi ya, Mac here! I’m a 8 year old, Goldendoodle boy weighing in at 52 lbs. I am super sweet and I like people, cats, and other dogs. I’m a little wary of the small people you call children as I haven’t had much experience with them. I also don’t care for storms! I am housetrained and know a few commands like sit, stay, and come. I like to swim, go for car rides and walks. AGB has been treating some ear infections for me and having a little dental work done, but other than that I am a healthy, happy, fella. All I need now, is a forever family? Could it be you? Submit an adoption application and let’s find out!

HONDO - PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND
Hi everybody, my name is Hondo. I am a 7 month old fella who had a very rough start in life. I was left neglected outside with several other dogs in an extremely bad environment with little to no care. Luckily, an AGB volunteer found out about one of the dogs and stepped in to help. When he saw me there and the deplorable state we were all in, he simply could not leave any of us behind. He knew we would likely not survive much longer. While the other dogs were quickly placed in families, I needed more help. AGB is committed to doing whatever is necessary to give me a happy, healthy life. I am a sweet natured boy, who loves being with other dogs. In fact, I am miserable when I am alone, so I would be best suited to live with at least one other dog. If you think you have room in your family for a cream colored cutie like me, I promise to love you forever and be your best friend. Just let AGB know you want to meet me and submit an adoption application on the website. I hope to get to meet you soon! ************************************************** P.S. I am receiving love, attention, and medical care now, which I desperately need, but no doubt, my Vet bills will continue to rise. If you could make a donation of any amount to help AGB with my care, I would appreciate it. Love & licks…Hondo.

REMINGTON - BONDED WITH OLIVER III
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND. CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! Hey there everybody! I’m Remington. I am 6 years old and weigh 100 lbs. My family could no longer care for us so me and my brother Oliver were lucky to get to come to AGB. We hear they are the best at finding forever homes for Golden boys like us. We have always been together so we really don’t want to be separated. We get along with girl dogs and people. We bark at cats! We like kids, but get really excited, so we’re probably best suited for older children. We had been living outside, so we might need a family who can work with us and teach us how to be good boys inside. But hey - we're Golden Retrievers! Smart, and people pleasing. We're told we are "delightful." We love to play and run around. It had been a while since we saw a Vet, but AGB took care of that. We were neutered and treated for heartworms, and are ready to roll now! We have also been put on diets! As you can imagine, our Vet bill is pretty large since there are two of us. If you could spare a few dollars to help, it would really make our tails wag! If you are looking for a couple of handsome, friendly, Golden guys to be your best buddies, I think Oliver and I could be the right dogs for you. Just fill out the adoption application online and tell AGB you want to meet us!

OLIVER III - BONDED WITH REMINGTON
PLEASE DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! Hi friends! I’m Oliver. I am 6 years old and weigh around 100 lbs. My family could no longer take care of us, so me and my brother Remington were taken in by AGB. They have been really nice to us and promise to find a family who will want us both. We really want to stay together because we’ve never been apart! We get along with girl dogs and people. We bark at cats! We like kids, but get really excited so we’re probably best suited for older children. We have been living outside so we might need a family who can teach us some house manners and who will give us lots of play time. But hey, we are Golden Retrievers - we're smart and quick learners! We had not been to the Vet for a while so AGB took care of that for us. We needed to be neutered and treated for heartworms, but we are all good to go now! We have also been put on diets! We have run up kind of a big bill since there are two of us. If you could spare a few dollars to help, it would really make our tails wag! If you are looking for a couple of handsome, friendly, Golden guys to be your best buddies, I think Remington and I could be the perfect pups for you. Just fill out the adoption application online and tell AGB you want to meet us!

LUCKY II - ADOPTION PENDING
Hello friends. I’m Lucky, an 8 year old, 69 lb Golden Retriever mix. I haven’t been around cats, so I’m not sure how I feel about the felines, but I know I sure like all the attention! I like people a lot, I've been getting along well with the other dogs in my foster family and I like kids too. I can be a little shy around people I don’t know at first, but once I get to know you, you will find that I am a fun, friendly fella. I also like walks, car rides and running and playing in the yard. My foster mom said I am a gem and a very special boy! If you’re looking to add a handsome boy to your family, I hope you will come to meet me, Lucky.

BABY GIRL II - PLEASE DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND
Good day friends. My name is Baby Girl, but I am no baby! I am a sweet, senior lady of about 12 years weighing in at 54 lbs. A while ago, my world was turned upside down when I found myself in a shelter. Luckily for me, the shelter reached out to AGB as they knew they could take care of me. AGB took me in and had a nice Veterinarian to make sure I was okay. I needed some testing and surgery to remove a cyst and medicine to help with my joints. Luckily, they found I am heartworm negative. I am staying with a lovely foster family now and as you can tell by my cutie-pie smile in this picture, they are treating me quite well! What would really make me happy is finding an adopter who will love and care for me forever. Could it be you? If you love sweet, sugar-faced, Golden girls, I hope you will reach out to the rescue and let them know you want me to be your Baby Girl! And if you have a few dollars to spare to help AGB with my medical bills, I would really appreciate it. Just click "more" to see my fundraiser. Thank you ever so much! PS… I qualify for the “Senior to Senior” program which will waive my adoption fee for adopters who are 65 or older!
