Klondike - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! Hi, hoo-mans! My name is Klondike; the folks here at AGB call me by an affectionate nickname, Klonnie. I am a baby girl puppy of just over six months old. But, for such a short time on this earth, I've had some rough patches. I got rescued from a shelter and I just can't remember how I got there. The folks at my new vet and my AGB friends have been taking real good care of me since I came in with kennel cough, ringworm and a skin infection. Nobody was taking care of me before. I've been a little quiet and subdued because I didn't feel good but, once I'm cured, watch me go! I should get my medical release very soon and I've got a lot of catching up to do. I want to meet everybody; people, other pups and possibly cats - I don't know about them yet. Toys and treats would be terrific too. You can see I'm quite a pretty girl with mostly white fur and huge dark eyes. I weigh about 37 pounds but I'm still growing. I will be spayed and microchipped and I'm heart worm negative and vaccinated. Everybody says I'm extremely sweet. 2020 is going to be my year; I can just feel it. I'll be the best, most loving puppy around, I promise. And I hope I'll never, ever have to set paw in a shelter again - because I'll home with my hoo-mans who'll love me too.

Loosie - ADOPTION PENDING
Hello, friends! Remember what Ricky Ricardo used to call his wife in the I Love Lucy show? Well, my name sounds exactly like that - Loosie! I'm 8 years old and I weigh 65 pounds. And while I'm not a ravishing redhead like Lucille Ball, I am a beautiful blonde lady as you can see. Classic Golden Retriever looks and style. I'm good with dogs and kids and strangers. But most of all, I love having my people around. My previous person found that between work and family obligations that I was spending way too much time alone - over 12 hour stretches at a time - and they felt I deserved a special someone that would be around more frequently. AGB found me a new home immediately with a family that has been waiting for a girl just like me! I'm a comfortable sort of a girl, low activity level, but I enjoy leash walks and car rides. I'm house trained, of course, and will go to the door to let you know I want to go out. Don't know about cats much but I will bark at them when I see them; let them know I'm around. I know the "sit", "come" and "down" commands. And I shouldn't eat rawhide or people food because of a bit of a sensitive tummy. But go on and shout "Loosie" and I will come a running to you. I'm going home for Christmas, folks, and I've already got my Christmas present of a new family to love me forever.

Bree - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! Hello, folks. My name is Bree which is an Irish nickname meaning "power, strength, vigor and virtue". I like the name because it sounds pretty too. Unfortunately, I didn't have quite the power and strength I hoped for because I've torn my ACLs in my right and left legs. I'm a tough girl but I'll be very, very glad to have nothing more to do with surgery and recovery periods and crate rest. I had a TPLO on my left leg in November but my right one will probably also need surgery. I'm smiling through it all though. I got surrendered to AGB because my owner unfortunately just didn't have the funds to cover my needed medical expenses. I'm a golden colored Labradoodle girl who loves riding in the car, swimming, and running too. And I hope to get back to it soon. I weight 68 pounds and I'm 5 1/2 years old. I'm spayed, vaccinated, heart worm negative and microchipped. I'm told I'm cute as a button. I'm house trained, I know commands, and I'm great with dogs and cats and strangers and kids. I love belly rubs and I'd love to have a family that would give me belly rubs often. It sure would be wonderful if you could give me some help with my medical expenses. I hope I'm running around soon and enjoying life! And smiling!

Luna II - ADOPTION PENDING
Hello! I am lovely Luna, practically perfect in every way. My previous owners very sadly and reluctantly surrendered me to AGB because their work schedule changed so much that I was alone - usually in my crate - for way too many hours every day. They felt I needed all the time and energy that a sweet pup like me deserves. They wanted the best for me. I'm still a puppy; only 10 months old. I weigh 72 pounds. I am house trained, heart worm negative, and vaccinated. I'm now spayed and microchipped too. I'm good with dogs, strangers and kids. I might like cats too but I will chase them, hee hee. I love chew toys, swimming, and riding in the car. I will give you my whole heart and all the kisses you can stand. So AGB told me with credentials like I have, there was a waiting list of adopters for a girl like me. And now I've already been matched with a new family! Wish me luck; I'm beginning a new adventure with them!

Clarice - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! In Steel Magnolias, a lady named Clairee, which is a version of my name Clarice, said "You know I love you more than my luggage". Well, I just know I'm going to love my new family more than anything in the world, much less luggage! So I am a darling little girl named Clarice. I weigh 82 pounds. I was found roaming around and probably had been on my own or neglected because I'm heart worm positive and had an ear infection and some scrapes from brush and bushes. AGB rescued me from the shelter where I was taken and have taken care of all my medical needs. I've been vaccinated, spayed and microchipped. I'm 6 years old and awful pretty with a white fur coat and golden ears. I've been described as gentle, calm and laid back. I ride well in the car. Just like the character Clairee, I'm funny, loyal and loving. I can't wait to go home soon and go no more a roaming....

Marley IV - ADOPTION PENDING - DONATE
'In search of belly rubs from new loving family'. Lots of belly rubs; I miss them when there's nobody to give them. My previous family reluctantly surrendered me because their time and funds to take care of me was limited. They said I was "beautiful, loving and deserved to be spoiled". My name is Marley and I'm a 7 year old Golden girl. I think I have lots of very fine traits. I'm on the submissive side, I love dogs and strangers; I'm sweet, playful and beautiful. I'm house trained. I will stand by the door to go outside and, if you're not aware, will whimper at the door to get your attention. I have big eyes and a lovely amber colored fur coat. I'm spayed, heart worm negative, vaccinated and microchipped. I weigh 75 pounds. I am afraid of thunder and fireworks; in fact, I'm not a fan of noisy and bad storms (flight risk). When that happens, I'm happier in my crate. I love car rides and did I mention belly rubs? It's been reported I'll bark at those catto creatures. Not sure what to do with them! Since coming to AGB, I've had a complete medical check-up and I had to have a badly infected tooth removed and I have a small lipoma on my chest. Going to get an ultrasound. Other than that medical stuff, I'm ready to find a new family to love and adore who will spoil me. Please don't forget the belly rubs, okay?

Parker III
Talk about wearing your heart on your sleeve...I wear mine on my forehead. If you look closely at the fur on the top of my forehead, there's a light streak that highlights a heart shape below it. I'm a sugar faced 9 year old girl that just had some really sad news. My people have been transferred overseas and cannot take me with them. I don't want to spend the holidays alone without a family to love. Even though I'm a senior gal, I am active and lively. I'd rather not be bothered by rascally cats though. However, I'm very friendly and I have a wonderful puppy grin. I weigh 77 pounds and probably could stand to lose a couple of them. I'm heart worm negative, vaccinated, spayed, and microchipped. Of course I'm house trained and just stand by the door when I need to go out. I know the "sit", "stay" and "come" commands. I have a dental evaluation coming up but, otherwise, except for a few allergies, I'm ready to become a fixture in your life and in your heart. Don't you want a pretty girl with a sugar face and a heart on top of her head to be yours? xox, Parker

Apollo - DONATE
They've given me a name worthy of a Greek god but truthfully, I'm just doggone cute! Hello, I'm Apollo and I'm 7 years old; a cream colored smiling boy that is so happy to be out of the shelter and rescued. I hear I'm going to get a new home with a new family. That sounds just perfect and I can't wait. In my past life, I was neglected and I was left tied to a tree before I got taken to a shelter. I want to forget about how sad that made me. I'm pretty thin at 53 pounds and I have the dreaded heart worms and need to undergo treatment. I have a bit of arthritis but that doesn't slow me down a bit. I look younger than my years and I've got very cute polka dots on my ears. I'm neutered, vaccinated and, best of all, house trained. I ride well in the car but please make sure I'm buckled up because I will jump out to see what's going on. I like other dogs. I am very sweet and I'm always grinning. And I could stand to be treated like a Greek god for the rest of my life.

Rhett - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! Frankly, my dear, I don't give a darn or something like that! Actually, I do give a darn; I'm ready to find a new home! Hello, y'all, my name is Rhett. Yep, just like Rhett Butler, I am dark haired, dashing, and swoon worthy! A romantic hero, some say! AGB has taken care of my medical issues so I'm raring to go! My heart worms have been treated and I've spent my time growing back my beautiful, shiny black coat - with just a touch of white on the chest - after having some skin problems from when I was at the shelter. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. I am a handsome boy. I'm four years old and 63 pounds of energy and sweetness. I have the stance of a show dog and I've got the big block head that drives the southern belles wild. Are you ready for a charming rogue in your life? I am ready for my new life with you.

Sunflower - FULLY FUNDED!
Just like late summer's blooms, my name is Sunflower. I'm sunny, bright and beautiful; a bit of a flirt too. "Sunflowers symbolize adoration, loyalty and longevity. Sunflowers are known for being “happy” flowers, making them the perfect gift to bring joy to someone's day." Okay, I'm sure I will bring joy to someone's day. I hope it's yours because I'm looking for a new home. Goodness knows I'll be loyal and adore you. I found myself picked up by animal control and taken to a shelter. I got my freedom ride to AGB and it's going to be flowers and kisses for me from now on out! I'm docile and sweet and I always have a pleasant smile on my face. I'm a beautiful white faced girl of about 7 years that weighs 61 pounds. I'm vaccinated, spayed, microchipped and, for now, heart worm positive, but my treatment shots are over. I'll be good as new in no time at all. I'm good with other dogs and I'm sure I'll bloom at your house.

Zoe III - FULLY FUNDED
Snoopy of Peanuts fame says "Keep looking up...that's the secret of life". My name is Zoe which means "life" so maybe this quote applies to me. And I am really trying to look up all the time but sometimes it's hard. I've been a little heartbroken and nervous about what's going on in my life. You see, my owner passed away and I got turned into a shelter. As a result, I also have a few medical problems that need to be addressed because I've also been a little neglected. I'm a six year old beautiful Golden girl. I weigh only 39 pounds so you can see I've been grieving. I'm also heart worm positive and need to be treated, I'm taking medicine for a cough and my infected ears and I'm being sent to a cardiologist to get thoroughly checked out. A few hurdles to get over before I can start looking up. And I am so ready to look up and see a bright new future with a family that will open their arms to me and let me love again. I am a very loving girl. I will climb into your lap for hugs and kisses. And I think the real secret of life is to love and be loved in return. Perhaps we could find the secret of life together. Please ask about me, Zoe III.

Mickey - ADOPTION PENDING
I wish I had a cheerleader singing "Hey, Mickey, you're so fine. You're so fine, you blow my mind. Oh, Mickey" for me like that upbeat 80's song. Hey, my name is Mickey and I'm somewhere over 3 years old. I weigh 49 pounds. I've been told I'm a very sweet little guy but right now I'm very uncomfortable with a skin condition that's being treated and I also am heart worm positive. I'll get heart worm treatments right after my skin starts healing from the medicine. I'll also be vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. Once my hair grows back I'll be as gorgeous as a show dog; I've got the stance and poise. I have a great temperament too. Somehow I ended up in the shelter and I just need a chance to get cured and I will be (I already am) a great dog! I hope you can look in my eyes and see what a darling, handsome boy I was before I was neglected. Do you think that that somebody might sing "Oh, Mickey, you're so fine" to me if I get adopted? I need somebody to love and I sure need somebody to love me!
