BUDDY XII – BONDED WITH BONNIE II
Hi friends! I’m Buddy, an 80 lb, 7 year old boy. My owner had to move to an apartment and couldn’t take me and my sister Bonnie with him, which left us homeless. We ended up boarded at a veterinarian’s office for a while, but they knew we needed a family to take us both in together because we can’t stand to be apart. After contacting just about every shelter and rescue around, AGB agreed to take us in and make us “honorary Goldens”, because as you can see, we’re not really retrievers. But we needed someone to step up for us and agree to find us a forever family and that is just what AGB has agreed to do. We are both very sweet and we like other pets. We will promise to be your very best friends forever. Won’t you take a chance on us like AGB did? Just contact AGB to set up a meeting with us. I promise you won’t regret it. Your friend, Buddy.

BONNIE II – BONDED WITH BUDDY XII
Hello everybody. I’m Bonnie, a 61 pound, 7 year old girl who found herself in some trouble. My owner had to move to an apartment and was not able to take me and my brother Buddy there. We ended up being boarded at a veterinarian’s office while they tried and tried to find someone to take us. You see, Buddy and me are best friends and with our world turned all topsy turvy, it’s more important than ever that we stay together. Just when it looked like we weren’t going to be able to find anyone to take us both in, AGB stepped up to save us! Some people may think that is kind of weird because we are not Goldens, but AGB knew we had an urgent need, so now we’re “honorary Goldens”. If you are looking for a couple of really cute best friends to join your family, I hope you will consider meeting me and Buddy!

DOLLY III
Hello, Dolly! That’s a song, but it’s also my name and it is fitting because I am a real doll! I am 4 and a half years old, and I weigh about 80 lbs. I am a Golden-Pyrenees mix and luckily, I am pretty healthy, other than an ear infection. But don’t worry, The AGB Vets are on it! I will be all well soon. I have been described as calm, mellow, sweet, cuddly, and affectionate. The thing is, I get uneasy around other animals and kids, so I was kinda hoping I could find someone to adopt me and let me be their one and only companion. I promise I will give you so much love, you won’t need anyone else. So, if you’re looking for a lovebug of a girl to give all your affection to, be sure to let AGB know you want to say hello to Dolly.

REIGN - ADOPTION PENDING
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 - ADOPTION PENDING
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!

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.

HOLLIDAE - ADOPTION PENDING
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!)
