REIGN - BONDED WITH BRIE
Greetings friends! They call me Reign and I am a handsome 1 year old fella weighing in at about 67 lbs. Until recently, I was a wanderer, just running with my sister, Brie. A very nice couple took us in and made sure we were fed and cared for. Since they couldn’t find our owners and were not able to keep us themselves, they contacted AGB who took us in right away and promised to find a home for use where we can stay together. I am in pretty good shape, but did have a cut on my paw and my leg hurt. And of course I needed shots and other routine medical care and medicines for fleas, ticks and heartworm prevention. I get along well with all people and other dogs and I’m generally a happy go lucky kind of guy. If you are looking to adopt a boy and a girl to be your besties, make sure you submit an application and ask to see us!

BRIE - BONDED WITH REIGN
Hello lovely people! My name is Brie and I am a 1 year old, 55 lb. girl. I was what they call “stray” and was wandering with my brother Reign just looking for a friend to help us out. Luckily, we were found by a very nice couple who took us in and cared for us. They couldn’t find our owners, but they did the next best thing. They got us to AGB who specializes in taking care of dogs just like us and finding forever homes for us together. I am a friendly girl and enjoy playing with big people, kids and other dogs. I am healthy, I had some hook and whip worms and my tummy was bothering me a little, so I wasn't eating well. I needed normal stuff like shots, medicine and spaying, which the doctors here are taking care of. If you think you need a couple of best friends like me and my brother in your life, you can submit an adoption application and start the process rolling!

PRECIOUS - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi ya folks! I’m Precious! That’s not just a description - although it is accurate – it’s actually my name. I am an 8 month old Golden girl and I weigh 33 lbs. I am friendly, sweet and have been called “hyper”. I’m not really sure what that means, but if it means I’m a playful, enthusiastic puppy, it is true. Like most youngsters, I need to learn my manners and to calm down a bit, but I am very smart with the desire to please. So with just a little time, love and training, I know I will learn what you expect of me. I love people and other doggies! I wasn’t feeling so good when I got to AGB. I had infections in both ears and an upper respiratory tract infection. I also need to be spayed, but luckily I am worm free! Soon, I will be ready to find my forever home. If you think you could be a good match for a young lady like me, just let AGB know that you think I am just “precious” 😉.

MAGGIE XI - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi, my name is Maggie. I’m a 70 lb, 18 month old Golden girl. I am sweet and loving and I get along well with kids, dogs and cats. I get anxious when I am fussed at and may need a little training to help me work through that. I am house and crate trained. I am healthy, vaccinated and spayed. I am hoping to find a family to love and spoil me. Does that sound good to you? If you said yes, I hope you will fill out an adoption application and arrange to meet me soon. I can’t wait! XOXO - Maggie

MARLEY V - ADOPTION PENDING
Hello friends my name is Marley. I’m a 5 year old girl weighing in at about 50 lbs. Though I can be shy at first, I am a sweet girl who loves people and other doggies. I developed a skin condition and became very irritated and itchy. My owners couldn’t handle it and decided to give me to a shelter. Luckily for me, the shelter knew the folks at AGB and they knew they would take care of me and find people who would love and care for me, so now I’m an AGB dog. The doctors here started me on medicine and medicated baths right away and already my skin is feeling so much better. Unfortunately, they found my skin condition was not the only health issue I had. They found I had hook and tapeworms and also those awful heartworms! So now I am getting more medicine for all that and I am going to take it easy and rest and let my body heal. While I’m doing that, the volunteers here are working to match me with a family who will give me all the pampering I have been missing. Do you think that could be you? If so, be sure to fill out an adoption application and ask to see Marley girl.

LEWIS II - BONDED WITH LILY V
Hi ya everybody! I’m Lewis! I am a 3 year old Golden mix and I am pint sized at just 32 lbs. I am a super sweet fella who loves to cuddle in your lap and gets along with other pets. I came to AGB as my family had a child with allergies who could not be around dogs. My sister Lily came with me. We were placed in different foster homes at first, but AGB soon realized we are bonded with each other and not happy at all when we are apart, so we need to be adopted together. When I arrived, my ears were giving me trouble, my fur was a little matted and I was itchy, but AGB is taking great care of me, so I should be in tip top shape soon. If you’re looking for the beauty of a Golden in a smaller package, I am the guy for you! You just need to fill out the adoption application and be sure to tell them you want to meet little Lewis and his beautiful sister Lily! See you soon!

LILY V - BONDED WITH LEWIS II
Hey there friends! I’m Lily, a 3 ½ year old Golden girl weighing in at 56 lbs. I’m a little on the small side, but will be back to normal with the good nutritious food I’m being given now. My owners had to rehome me and some other dogs due to their baby being allergic to us. I am bonded to my brother Lewis and very unhappy when I'm not with him. Because of this, we need to be adopted together. I am a sweet girl, very friendly and get along with other pets. I have itchy skin and some pretty bad ear infections, but I am getting the care I need to feel better. I’m also getting all my shots and being spayed, so I am just going to rest up and get ready to find my forever home. If you want to share your house and your heart with not one, but two, lovable forever friends, you will want to meet me and Lewis for sure!

JOCK - BONDED WITH CARMEN
Hello, I’m Jock (on the right), a 7 year old boy weighing in at 79 bs. My sister Carmen and I ended up at a shelter when our owner became too ill to care for us anymore. I tried very hard to be brave so that Carmen wouldn’t worry or be sad, but I confess, I was afraid we would get split up. You see, not everyone wants two dogs, but we have always been together and we need to be together forever. The shelter folks knew that and that’s how we came to be at AGB. AGB promises to adopt us as a package deal, double the Goldens, double the fun! I am a sweet fella who loves people and other animals. Of course Carmen is my favorite, but I have much more love to give. I am healthy but my fur was really matted when I got here, so I will need to be shaved and spoiled with some medicated baths to get my skin and fur back into tip top shape. Then it can grow back better than ever! I am feeling much better already just knowing that soon, we will be matched with our loving, forever humans! Do you think that could be you? If so, what are you waiting for? Fill out that adoption application right away and make sure you write down that you want to meet Jock and Carmen! We hope to see you soon, Jock.

CARMEN - BONDED WITH JOCK
My name is Carmen (on the left) and I am 7 years old and weigh 83 lbs. I am sweet and affectionate and love people and other animals. My owner became ill and had to give me and my brother, Jock, to a shelter so we could be cared for. That was scary for us. We missed our home and family a lot, but the scariest part was thinking my brother might be taken from me at any time! You see, we’ve been together our whole lives and no matter how bad things get, I am the “little sister” (even though I am slightly bigger in size!) and my brother is my rock. He always looks out for me. I NEVER want to be without him! Luckily for us, the shelter asked AGB to come get us. They said that AGB will make sure we are matched with a family who wants twice the Golden love so we will never have to live apart. I am healthy and doing well. My fur was a little unkempt when I got here and my legs a little stiff, but AGB is giving me all the care I need, and even some “spa treatments” to help me look and feel my best. If you’re interested in finding two best friends, let AGB you want to meet me, Carmen, and my brother Jock.

ROMEO - MEDICAL FULLY FUNDED
Hi, Romeo here! I’ve heard that Romeo is the name of a very famous, handsome, lover boy. I guess that’s why they call me Romeo because as you can see, I’m a handsome fella. I was found stray and taken to a shelter, and before too long a nice volunteer came and took me to AGB. I weigh 59 lbs and am estimated to be about 8 years old. Age is just a number, right, so I guess what really matters is that I am just the right age to be adopted and start my new life. The humans say I am sweet, affectionate, and friendly. I used to be a little nervous with people at first, but my foster family has helped me with that. The doctors here found I had some itchy skin and a hot spot on my back, but that is all good now too. I have been vaccinated and neutered and finished my treatment for heart worms with flying colors!! Everyone has been very kind and loving to me and they made me a promise that they would do whatever it takes to get me adopted. So now I am just focusing on meeting folks who are looking for a forever best friend. Could that be you? If you would like to meet me, just tell AGB you want to meet the Lover Boy, Romeo!

RILEY III - ADOPTION PENDING
Hello friends! My name is Riley and I am a 7 year old, 80 lb golden boy. Recently my parents separated and it has been a stressful time for all of us. They decided it would be best if I could find a family with lots of love to give and time to spend with me. As you can see, I’m quite handsome. My foster family reports that I have been a perfect gentleman. Though I would be fine as an only dog, I get along well with my foster brother and especially love a good game of tug of war. I am housetrained and I love to cuddle! I prefer to sleep on my soft bed next to yours rather than in a crate. I go to the door when I need to go out. Don’t worry if you don’t see me. I will come find you! I don’t normally get on furniture unless you give me permission, I don’t beg for food and I know a few commands like sit, come and down. I also love car rides! I do get a little nervous when I hear loud noises, so perhaps you could help me with that. I had some fatty growths and a rash on my belly when I came to AGB, but the doctors are taking care of all that and I am feeling better. I am neutered and vaccinated and ready to be someone’s new best friend. If you’re ready for a new bestie, let AGB know you want to meet me, Riley.

BUSTER II - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi friends, I’m Buster. I am about 10 years old and weigh 76 pounds. I am a retriever mix with a white dappled face. I was turned into a shelter as a stray and luckily AGB took me in. I have a calm, sweet nature and I am housebroken, but I am a little timid. If you had been out and about in the world on your own as I was, you would be shy too! But with the help of my foster family, I am learning to trust again. Don't I look handsome on my lead after enjoying a nice walk? I am heartworm negative, but I had ear infections, itchy skin, and very matted fur when I came in. So AGB had to get me shaved to let my skin heal and my fur grow back nice and pretty. I also limp some so I am taking joint supplements to help me with that. As you see, I walk pretty good on a leash and I also ride well in the car. What I really need is someone who has patience and love to give to a special senior fella like me. Could that be you? If you think so, let AGB know you want to meet me, Buster, very soon. PS…Since I’m 10, I can be placed through the senior-to-senior program to an adopter 65 or older and my adoption fee will be waived!

HOLLIDAE - MEDICAL FULLY FUNDED
Recognize these lyrics? "Holiday, Celebrate! If we took a holiday, Took some time to celebrate, Just one day out of life, It would be.., It would be so nice" (The song is Holiday from Madonna). That's my name, Hollidae. I got my freedom ride out of a shelter and now I'm an AGB pup. I was a stray and probably lived outside in the past and now I'm golden. That's worth celebrating! I'm a 11 year old super sweet girl and I weigh 50 pounds. My foster Mom says I am a really good girl and quite the little helper. I love to pick things up from around the house and yard and carry them around for her! I'm spayed, vaccinated and microchipped , and now I can move on to a new, happy life. I've been treated for heart worms and reported all in the clear! AGB is giving me all the care I need and, life will be sweet with treats, toys and my own cozy bed in my forever home. Now that's what I call a holiday! And I will show everyone how much I'm looking forward to my new life with smiles and kisses. I like people and other animals. So let's celebrate....together. It would be so nice. (PS...another bonus to adopting me is since I’m 11, I can be placed through the senior-to-senior program to an adopter 65 or older with no adoption fee!)
