Dogs highlighted in blue are in need of a foster family

Lucille - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! Little Richard sang a song about a Lucille; "Lucille, please, come back where you belong". I don't know where I belong. It seems like all the "Lucille" songs are about the girl leaving. Well, my story is different. I got left. And, unfortunately, before I got left, I had some medical issues that weren't treated so here I am - a 10 year old senior lady without a home and needing some medical care and especially some TLC for my hurting heart. I'm sweet and friendly; I like car rides, I was a pretty loving and loyal girl all my life. I weigh 56 pounds and I'm a bit malnourished. I have an eye infection and some dental issues, my skin needs some work, and I'm heart worm positive. I needed all my vaccinations. I'm so sad that this is the shape I'm in when I should be enjoying my senior years with coddling and love. AGB assures me that they will get me all fixed up to be the pretty Golden girl I once was and find me a family that will love and cherish me. I'm hoping with all my heart that there is somebody out there just for me that will sing me happy "Lucille" songs telling me that I belong to them.

Sunflower - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! 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 but, unfortunately, heart worm positive. I also needed a quick surgery on an inflamed small mammary mass and then I'll begin heart worm treatment. 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 - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! 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.

Beary - ADOPTION PENDING
Hello, world! I am a beary, beary cute puppy. I guess that's why they named me Beary! I don't look much like a bear; in fact, I am one handsome cream and light gold colored boy who's around 7 months old. But I'm as cuddly as a teddy bear and twice as adorable. I don't know why but somebody surrendered me to a shelter and AGB came and got me right quick. They know a rock star in the making. I do need some training in manners because I can get all excited and jump up and nobody has taught me what I'm supposed to know yet. But I'm smart and, with the right somebody, I'll be the best puppy ever. I am an excellent car rider, I'm interested in cats and I like to meet every dog I see. I'm heart worm negative, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. I weigh 56 pounds and I'm likely to be a big boy all grown up because I'm quite tall. Everybody has told me I'm very sweet with a precious expression and that I'll find a new home in lickety split time because, after all, I am a beary, beary wondrous puppy boy.

Max/Buddy Max - ADOPTED
Oct 9,2019 - Foster Failure! Shortly after coming to AGB, Max went to a foster home where he has a canine brother and sister, two feline sisters, and a mom and dad who think he’s pretty awesome. After a few days, Max told them that he was adopting them and that it was non-negotiable. Thankfully, they are equally smitten with him and are committed to helping him with his allergies and arthritis. His new parents are very "thankful that AGB is letting them adopt this sweet boy". Max couldn't have picked a better home! Congrats, sweet boy. ****************************************** They call me Max, magnificent Max. Hello folks, believe it or not, I'm looking for a new home. My owner experienced some family and financial problems and reluctantly surrendered me to AGB. It's a little bewildering to me because I've been with my owner since I was a puppy. But I'm in a wonderful foster home right now and only needed to stay in the vet kennel for a couple of days. I've been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and I'm heart worm negative. Simply, I am a magnificent and handsome Golden boy of 7 years; the perfect age. I'm house-trained and easy going and I weigh 75 pounds. I know "sit", "off", and "down". I have been allowed on furniture but I'm used to my own dog bed in the bedroom. I'm playful with other dogs and I love cats! And, yes, like the typical Golden, I love car rides and walks. Overall, I have quiet nature but I'm a very friendly and good boy. I'm told I have the cutest little crooked bottom teeth (braces might have helped). I do need prescription food because I have some food and skin allergies. You might know that the name "Max" means "greatest". And I promise I will be the greatest Golden boy in the world!

Oak
"Handsome is as handsome does." Sure. And goodness knows, I am handsome! Handsome in a rugged kind of way. I'm hoping just one look at my eyes and face will make you fall in love with me. My name is Oak. I'm around a year and a half old and I weigh 59 pounds. Still a puppy boy almost. My owner gave up eight of us pups when he got into some trouble and so AGB got called - my Golden Retriever rescue. Yay! I've been told I'll get a wonderful new forever home and won't have to worry about ever winding up at a shelter again. I'm a little unsure of what's been going on and I'd sure appreciate some stability. I'm a nice, sweet boy. I just got neutered and vaccinated. I'm heart worm negative and microchipped. I love car rides, being petted, and I really love treats. Not a big fan of the leash although I hear that if you learn how to walk on the leash, somebody will take you for long walks and jaunts. That sounds pretty good. What would sound even better is the voice and touch of a new owner I could call my own! Puppy kisses, Oak

Mickey - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! 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!
