Gabby II - ADOPTION PENDING
Gorgeous Gabby came and went in the blink of an eye! Hi there, I'm Gabby! I've been told I'm a beautiful Golden girl. I came to AGB from some really nice folks who took me in when my owner passed away. They took care of me but felt I needed folks who were around more than they could be - they want the very best life for me. So I'm grateful to them for helping me and insuring I wasn't turned into a shelter. I'm just over 5 years old, I'm house-trained and friendly and fairly quiet. I weigh 74 pounds. I'm great with big dogs; not as fond of little dogs, but I love walks and car rides. I'm kind of wanting a lot of attention right now because I've had a lot of transition to deal with so AGB found me an adoptive family very quickly. Everybody says that as soon as I settle in and feel loved and secure, I'm going to be a "gem". So I'll be sending you all puppy kisses and hugs from my new home!

LJ - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! "L is for lofty, your ambitions are high! J is for joy, that you always bring." My name is LJ and it's my 'ambition' to get a new home and it will be my 'joy' to find somebody to love who will love me back. I'm a senior boy, age 11, who has lost his home because my former owner lost their home. I'm kind of bewildered because I've been living with my owner since I was a puppy. I'm not eating a lot right now. I weigh 64 pounds. I'm house trained, I've just received all my vaccinations and I'm neutered. As you can see, I don't look like I'm 11; I have that puppy face and I like to dance around when I'm getting attention. I was raised with cats and I'm okay with other dogs but don't like it if they jump on me. I prefer a calmer companion. I love to ride in the car and I always call "shotgun"! I currently have an ear infection and that's probably why I'm a little head shy because it hurts. You also have to be cagey with me and outsmart me to take pills because I'd rather not take them, thank you very much. I'm available for the senior to senior program. I'm really hoping that my handsome self will find a new home right away because it's scary and lonely to be homeless. Goldens like me do so much better with people. Please don't let me be lonesome for long. Thank you.

Casey - ADOPTION PENDING (Bonded to Dack)
Is there anything sweeter than an old couple who are still in love? Cute couple alert! Hi, people, I'm Casey and I'm very much in love with my big man, Dack. Couldn't do without him; we've been together 11 years! Our human Dad passed away, and Dack and I need to find a new home together where we can be loved and happy for the rest of our lives. I'm a very feminine and petite girl who will flirt for treats. I weigh 45 pounds and I'm pretty agile. I have a very slight limp because of previous nail bed infections but, goodness, it's like I'm at a spa. I'm getting foot soaks and medicated baths and mousse treatments on my fur. We were outside alone most of the time so my skin needs some loving care. I love other dogs and people and I'm a real adorable girl. I'm hoping Dack and I will see the end of summer in a new home together; loving each other and our new people. Bless you all, Casey

Dack - DONATE- ADOPTION PENDING (Bonded to Casey)
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY. Is there anything sweeter than an old couple who are still in love? Cute couple alert! Hello there, my name is Dack. I'm a gentleman of senior years and I have a few miseries that come with age. But I have my girl Casey who lights up my life. We've been together all our lives; we're 11 years old. I weigh 80 pounds. Our human Dad passed away and there was no one to continue taking care of us so we've been welcomed to AGB. My hearing isn't what it used to be, my ears are infected, and I just had a growth removed from my back knee. So I haven't been feeling too well. Casey and I used to spend most of our time outdoors and now we're looking for a place where we can cuddle inside and be cool in the summer and warm in the winter, especially on a comfortable bed. I'm heart worm negative and vaccinated. I'm very sweet and friendly. Besides my sweetheart Casey, I love treats and peanut butter sandwiches. Maybe you could help me out with a few donations towards my medical costs. I'd sure appreciate it. And thank you for letting me stay with my girl.

Doc - ADOPTION PENDING
My name is Doc. Imagine me saying "I'm your Huckleberry" in a southern drawl. (Name that movie). Anyhow, being a "huckleberry" means "one is just the right person for a given job" so my new job is finding a perfect home for myself and becoming your wonderful Golden companion. I'm a 3 years old boy, very handsome with a caramel golden fur coat. I weigh 65 pounds. I'm an owner surrender so I'm a little anxious about what's going to happen next. I'm heart worm negative, up to date on all my shots, neutered and microchipped. I like dogs and am okay with cats; although occasionally they are fun to play chase with. I'm house trained and will look you straight in the eye when I need to go out. I love leash walks and car rides and swimming. I haven't been crate trained so I'd really like to sleep in your bedroom. But I don't get on furniture. I know a few commands like "sit', "stay", "off" and "down". I probably do need someone to do some training with me so I know what the boundaries are. Especially because I like to counter surf and I will steal your food in a heartbeat if I get the chance. And when it's mine, it's mine which I'm told is not a "good boy". I would like to be your good boy. And I need a huckleberry too, please. Hugs, Doc

General Jimbo - ADOPTION PENDING
Attention, General Jimbo at your service. Actually, I'm way too young to be a General officer; I'm only around 8 months old. I was secretly hoping to be called something like 'Ramses' because my beautiful black rimmed eyes look like a drawing of an Egyptian pharaoh. AGB came and got me from a shelter and brought me to Birmingham. I'm very excited about that because I'm thinking I'm gonna get a fine new home and some wonderful loving people to adopt me. The AGB folks said that a puppy boy like me with huge expressive eyes, a happy smile, and lots of soft white fur will be irresistible. I have suffered a little flea allergy so I lost just a bit of fur on my left back side but that is growing back quickly with medicated baths. I've been neutered and microchipped, and I've already been vaccinated, given my rabies shot, and I'm heart worm negative. I weigh 75 pounds and unlike most puppies, I'm calm and sorta laid back. I'm very friendly and sweet. And I ride well in the car. All in all, an adorable study in black and white with a touch of gold (ears) and pink (tongue). Maybe you should come meet me!!! xox, General Jimbo (aka Ramses)

Henry II - ADOPTED
Sep 7, 2019 - Our little tripod Henry turned those big brown eyes on his new parents and melted their hearts. He was fostered after his surgery to remove a very painful leg and was able to recover completely. He is now "running the fence" with the two dogs next door and runs like the wind! Henry loves to snuggle in the bed at night especially with his dad, and follows mom around everywhere she goes. This sweet puppy has a long life of good things ahead of him. Take care Henry, and have fun! ********************************************** 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 had an old injury from being previously hit by a car and the Doctors said I would be pain free if they removed it. So AGB got it fixed and sure enough, I'm felling good! I've been vaccinated and I was already neutered. I've been kind of quiet because I didn'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 that somebody nice will want to adopt and love on a heartthrob like me forever.
