Townes
In search of a new love. Hello, my name is Townes. I've gotten my heart broken a couple of times in the past and I'm hoping that there's somebody special or a new family that wants a lasting and forever love with a Golden boy like me. I wanna go home and stay there. I'm a seven year old handsome guy with a soft, fluffy coat and a big heart to love you. I'm great with other pets and kids. I've just had some bad luck with folks that "don't have time for me". Do I want your attention; of course I do. You'll be my world. I hope you're willing to give me some time to adjust to a new home and maybe a little training so I learn what the house rules are in your home - my new home. I'm house trained and will let you know when I need to go out with a soft bark when I'm standing at the door. I weigh 67 pounds. I'm vaccinated, microchipped, neutered, and heart worm negative. I do need some special dog food for a renal condition but otherwise, I'm in great shape. I'm ready to go on walks and be your companion whenever you need one. I'll keep you entertained. I don't like to be bored but I'm low energy so we can hang out whenever. So I'm hoping to meet some folks that "have some time" and I'll give you the rest of my life! xox, Townes

Creed - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND. CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! My name is Creed which mean "a faith". I have so much faith that AGB is gonna get me a new family and a new home. Fingers crossed! My belief system is pretty simple - treats, two square meals, a 'hooman' to love who will tell me I'm a "good boy", belly rubs or petting or both, a grassy patch to roll around in and no cats. Cats are horrible; don't like them! I'm not crazy about crates and kennels either. I was picked up in Talladega as a stray and now I'm in Birmingham. The vet there found out I have heart worms so I must be treated. I had to get neutered and microchipped and vaccinated. I'm a year and a half year old adorable faced boy with a tiny tuft of white on my chest. I weigh about 50 pounds. Everybody keeps telling me I'm very sweet and affectionate which I like to hear. I like other dogs too. It's been kind of tough being on my own cause I'm still pretty much a puppy. I can't wait to be part of somebody's pack! I'd sure be happy if you'd donate to my heart worm treatment.

Maggie X
Hello, I'm Maggie. I'm a pearl of a girl; that's what the name Maggie means, a pearl. AGB has had ten of us pretty golden girls named Maggie so far. I was rescued two years ago with a fellow named Oliver - both of us were breeder dogs. I'm a senior lady now of 10 years of age and would love to spend my time enjoying myself in some luxurious surroundings in my retirement. My own bed sounds wonderful. I've now been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and I'm heart worm negative. I weigh 78 pounds. I probably could lose a couple of pounds, I have a UTI, and I'm currently on some Proin medication. I've been on a roller coaster lately and I could use some calmness, security, and a routine in my life. Wouldn't mind some petting and love too! A kennel environment is different from a home so I'd appreciate some patience while I learn the ropes. I'm good with people and other pets. I'm very pretty with a light red coat. I'd love to be a pearl of a girl in your heart. Won't you come meet me and we'll see what happens. I'm eligible for the senior to senior program.

Hankie - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY SURGERY FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU! Hello, my name is Hankie. Some have been calling me a Fairy Princess but, with an edgy name like Hankie, I'd like to think I'm more of a rockstar princess! I'm not a lacy and embroidery type of girl and my name is not short for handkerchief! I'm 3 years old and quite trendy and adorable! I'm an energetic and happy pup with a good temperament. Excitement is my middle name but I'm also very sweet. I'm heart worm negative, spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. I weigh 69 pounds. I'm pretty good on being house trained and know "sit" and a couple of other easy commands. I like other pets as well. My little quirks are I'm a little scared of the blowdryer at the groomer and I sure don't like loud noises. All in all a darling little girl. Unfortunately though, my foster noticed my gait was a little irregular and the vet did some x-rays. I have hip dysplasia and will need to have an FHO surgery especially on my left leg and probably the right one as well. AGB said, with a little help from our friends, that they'll get me all fixed up and I'll be able to recover either in a foster home or maybe even with my new family (I hope, I hope)! A little Golden beauty like myself has a whole fantastic life - continuing to be a rockstar Princess - in front of me with spring in my step and no pain. I hope you will consider donating to my surgery fund. It would help me a lot. Thank you kindly.

Tabitha
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE WHO FULLY FUNDED MY MEDICAL THERMOMETER! "There's a new kid in town......You look in her eyes, the music begins to play, hopeless romantics, here we go again" (Eagles). Hello, I am the new 'girl' in town - the first girl orphan of 2021. My name is Tabitha. I'm kind of shy but I warm up quickly. I'm about two years old - maybe a little younger - and I weigh 49 pounds. I was lost and roaming around a neighborhood looking for some food, shelter, and a friendly face. And a very nice person put me in their car and took me to the shelter. Nobody came for me. Then somebody else came to the shelter and drove me all the way to Birmingham; they called it a "freedom ride". I haven't been in cars a lot; it kind of made me nervous but I relaxed after a while. But I'm a happy girl; I'm an AGB pup now. I've been told that there are lots of folks who have applied to AGB looking for a little girl just like me to call their own. I'm in good health, I got spayed and chipped and vaccinated. I'm very sweet and affectionate and I'm quite pretty too! So maybe the next time you hear from me, I'll be in a new home and we'll all be 'hopeful' romantics!

Jethro - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! Hello there, my name is Jethro and I'm walking into a new life with a grin on my face. I was a stray in a shelter and AGB came and got me and said I was an AGB pup now and my life was gonna change for the better. So here I am. The name Jethro is a Hebrew name meaning "abundance, overflowing, and excellence". Well, I have an abundance of sweetness, a heart overflowing with love and am an excellent boy so it's a good name for me. I'm a senior around 10 years old. I'm neutered and vaccinated, and had some dental work and extraction. I'm a handsome guy but underweight; currently weigh 38 pounds. I have some arthritic twinges and will need to be on some inexpensive meds to keep me pain free. I'm getting more used to it, but I'm not crazy about leashes or things going over my head so I draw the line at wearing hats, folks. My foster says I am a great companion; I like to hang out and watch TV, but I also like to go prancing around the yard. I like her other two dogs too, now that we have all warmed up to each other! For all that, I'm a very sweet guy with a loving heart who wants to spend the rest of my life with somebody special.

Bentley V/Ben-Ben - ADOPTED
May 1, 2021 - Bentley (front and center) came to AGB when his family reluctantly made the decision to surrender him after he escaped their yard and had a close encounter with a small dog. Bentley went to foster with longtime AGB volunteers. It took some time adjusting to sharing, especially his toys. He loved the cats and fixated on them as if they were his children. Bentley soon learned that having 3 AGB alums as big brothers wasn’t such a bad thing as long as they stayed away from his toys. Although AGB looked for the right adopter, due to Bentley’s age, need for a fenced yard, and dislike for little dogs, the right home didn’t come along. His foster parents felt that Bentley had already found his forever home and probably would have a hard time adjusting to another life yet again. His new parents and siblings are thrilled. Way to go Bentley! ******************************************** Like the vintage luxury vehicle, I am named Bentley. As you might imagine, I like my plush comforts like a warm spot on the sofa with a pillow to lay my head on. The word that best describes me is "sweet". I'm a 9 year old fellow and at my former home I escaped my backyard and wandered on some other dog's territory and a scuffle ensued. Gosh, it was just a harmless jaunt. My owners called AGB and very reluctantly surrendered me because they did not want me to escape again and be in a bad situation. Because of this, and because I LOVE to chase balls, a privacy fence would be best for me. I am overall healthy, neutered, vaccinated, and heart worm negative. I weigh 90 pounds. I love people and I follow my foster mom everywhere she goes. I'm curious about the cats in my foster home, and I like most big dogs, but little dogs test my patience so a home without them is best. Maybe having me as an only dog, all to yourself, would work just fine! I'm hoping there are folks out there who can't wait to spend time with a mature Golden gentleman like me who loves life, the occasional (supervised) jaunt, and all the little luxuries of home. I hope you'll ask about me, Bentley.
