Lulu
Merriam-Webster defines Lulu as "one that is remarkable or wonderful". Other sources say lulu is "an amazing girl", "precious", "pearl". Sounds wonderful, doesn't it? Well, my name is Lulu so I'm hoping that you all will think I'm remarkable and wonderful and a precious pearl. I'm a 1 year old girl and I weigh 46 pounds. Still a puppy, I have lots of energy. I'm cute as a button with a sweet face. I'm house trained and I do understand some commands like "sit", "shake", "stay" and waiting on food. I like cats and dogs. Sometimes I can be a little timid before I get to know you but we'll make fast friends quickly. Of course, I need to continue some puppy training so I don't jump up and learn that toys are okay to mouth but not anything else. I'm spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heart worm negative. I got surrendered because my former house didn't have a fenced yard and they wanted me to live outside. Everybody decided that a new home was just the ticket since sweet, slight little girls like me need to live inside and have a fenced in yard. The vet looked me over and I am overall healthy with a great personality. I hope I will steal your heart and become your precious pearl. xox, Lulu

Briar/Jackson - ADOPTED
Sep 20, 2020 - One year old Briar, surrendered with his brother Ace II,because of tunneling under the fence and going after the neighbor's chickens, has been adopted to Atlanta. This sweet couple lost their precious AGA Turkey dog earlier this summer and were hoping for a dog that would be as wonderful as their first dog. When they met Briar, they knew they had their boy. New mom said she never thought they would have as great a dog as Briar and he is just the sweetest and smartest dog ever! Briar is now Jackson, and is enjoying being the "only child" since he was not bonded to brother Ace. AGB did not announce them on the website as there were adopters waiting in line for them! Handsome Jackson, live a good life!

Sep 10, 2020 - Ace is now Brewster and he’s at home with a wonderful foster and former adopter and an AGB alum who adores him. His new dad says that Brewster is a very sweet, clumsy, overgrown puppy who constantly slips on the floor or trips and falls. He is learning basic commands, how to swim, and how to play. Brewster is a lucky boy who has a pool, a lake house, and many backpacking trips to look forward to! Enjoy your new life, beautiful boy!

Happy II
Drum roll, please! Let me introduce myself. I am the 1,000th orphan that Adopt A Golden Birmingham has rescued over the years and my name is Happy! So I am a very special pup in a long line of Golden Retrievers and Golden Retriever mixes that are known as AGB alumni. Once you're an AGB pup, you are loved forever. I was named Happy to reflect my sunny disposition. I am a 6 month old very cute boy; adorable and sweet. I weigh 34 pounds; I'm heart worm negative, vaccinated, and microchipped. I heard them say I'm scheduled for a 'neuter'; whatever that is. Think I'll like it? I've got some shadings of black fur mixed into my gold so I'm very striking looking. My vet said I have a good temperament and I'm overall healthy. I'm great with people and other dogs. I'm still small enough to be picked up and cuddled. I'm housebroken and crate trained. Good stuff! I know AGB is gonna find me a great home! As the 1,000th orphan of AGB, I get to thank all our donators and adopters for making it possible for AGB to continue to rescue and find homes for great little guys (and gals) like me over the years. Really, thank you so much!

Beauregard
Bonjour! They named me Beauregard which is French for "fair aspect" or "fine view" but I'm a southern boy from my nose to the tip of my tail. I like the name. I've been told that pups named "Beauregard" or "Beau" are the most wonderful fellows! I was found as a stray and taken to a shelter and then AGB came and got me and told me I'm an AGB pup now. I got neutered and had entropion surgery (to correct an inward rolling of the eyelids) in August but I'm really good now. Just having some antibiotic eye ointment applied until that area is fully healed. I'm two years old, weigh 69 pounds, and I'm now neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and heart worm negative. They keep telling me I'm very, very sweet but full of energy and just a little rambunctious. I'm basically still a puppy, you know. I guess I need some puppy training by someone terrific who will take the time to get to know me and help me become the most wonderful fellow possible. I'm very smart and I will learn. Something else you need to know about me is that I LOVE peanut butter. Ha, my coat is almost the color of peanut butter, isn't it? I think I'm quite handsome and I hope you do too. This southern boy is looking forward to some great adventures in his life with someone who loves dogs named Beau(regard).

Lucius - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine". My name is Lucius and it means "light". I'm a five year old boy and I weigh 53 pounds. I just became an AGB pup when my owners very sadly surrendered me because their work kept them from spending any time with me and they loved me enough to want me to go to a home where I could shine. I was getting very lonely. I've seen the vet and I've been neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. I'm currently undergoing heartworm treatment but that is only a few weeks. But I should be just fine once all that's done. I'm a handsome boy with a gorgeous cream colored stripe down my chest. I've got a big blocky head that the gals go crazy over. I am friendly and playful. Lately, I was living outside and sleeping under the house. I'll be quite happy to have my own comfy bed in the house; I am house trained. I'm very good with people, strangers and other dogs but I do have one habit; I can be food possessive if another pup wants to eat my food so maybe I just need some privacy when I eat. I'm can be afraid of cats if they run, but I like my foster cat. I'd really like to be the light of someone's life; I'll be a real good companion! Hopefully, Lucius

Casey III ADOPTED (Bonded with Annie III)
Sep 18, 2020 - Sep 18, 2020 - When a wonderful and loving couple from out west saw Annie and Casey on Susie’s Senior Dogs, they did what very few people would do. They drove 1200 miles to Birmingham, met and adopted this darling duo, and drove 1200 miles back to New Mexico. They saw dogs that needed a home, knew they needed dogs, and they made it happen! Annie and Casey’s new parents said, "Susie's Senior Dogs is a miracle organization. It really was their web site that led us to the girls. They traveled extremely well and handled staying in a hotel like a couple of pros! Every day we learn more about them and they learn more about us. At the moment, they are Daddy's girls until it is time to eat and then suddenly, they want to know where Mom is.” What a wonderful adoption story, and we have so many people to thank! Thank you for the loving foster home, thank you to Susie’s Senior Dogs, and thank you to the new parents of these sisters. ********************************************* "Sisters are the perfect best friend!" Hi there, my name is Casey. I'm just over 9 years old and I weigh 60 pounds. I'm sticking close to my sister, who is my best friend, while we wait to see what happens next. My owner moved and decided they couldn't take us with them. I've been spayed but it's good I'm seeing a vet now to get my vaccinations and preventatives. Also, I was diagnosed as heart worm positive so I am going through that treatment. Like Annie, I'm also getting Senior Best Care Treatment and feel lucky that AGB wants us to be as healthy as possible. You can see what a pretty girl I am - Annie is too - with a very nice sweet smile. That's how they describe us: "sweet and gentle". I'm crate trained and good with kids and strangers. I'm really wishing that I could be curled up on a nice rug or bed with Annie and spending our senior years with someone that would like two Golden girls to love them. I'd really appreciate it if you could donate for my heart worm and other treatments. Thanks awfully!

Thank you for the loving foster home, thank you to Susie’s Senior Dogs, and thank you to the new parents of these sisters. ********************************************** "Sisters are the perfect best friend!" Hello, my name is Annie and my sister's name is Casey. We are so glad we have each other! We are senior Golden girls that, very sadly for us, are being left behind as our previous owner is moving and we're not going along with them. And although it's a little scary right now, thankfully, our owner called AGB to surrender us and AGB promised that we're going to be just fine. I'm 9 1/2 years old and weigh 55 pounds. I'm spayed and heart worm negative. We haven't been to a vet in a long time so our AGB vet has prescribed Senior Best Care for us to make sure we're in tiptop shape. We've now been vaccinated and tested and we're hoping there's a loving home out there that would love to take home two sweet and gentle girls with them. We're both very good girls, crate-trained, and more than happy to spend time with you and keep you company. We are good with kids and strangers. We do like to bark at strange dogs but that's just because we're interested in them. I will playfully chase a cat but I like them too. Casey and I would really like to be your pups.
