Piper
Hello there, folks! I'm Piper, a Golden boy around 10 months old. I and my pal Gracie were picked up as strays running through the streets in Tennessee. Maybe Gracie was following me because she thought I was a Pied Piper or something. Somebody from AGB came and picked us both up and took us to Birmingham. First stop was to the vet's and then on to a foster home. I had to get neutered and I've been vaccinated and microchipped. Good news is I'm heart worm negative. I'm a sweet boy with a sweet face and I have a gorgeous gold fur coat. More good news - I'm house trained. So lets get our summer started with me becoming your forever boy. We could have such fun together. I know I've got a lot to learn since I'm still a puppy but I'm smart and I'm ready. I like people and I like other dogs. I saw a cat at the vets and now I love my foster kitty friend. Being in my new home with A/C and a dog bed to call my own would be heaven. Let's get together, okay?

Gracie III
Hello! My name is Gracie; the prettiest little raven-haired 'Golden' cutie you'll ever see. I and my friend Piper were found running down the streets in Tennessee. An appeal to AGB was made, a nice lady drove up to get us from Tennessee, drove us to Birmingham, and now we're AGB pups. Somebody told me that that means we are really lucky pups. I'm still a puppy girl - approximately 10 months old. I weigh just over 19 pounds and I'm bound to be small when I'm full grown. First I went to the vets where I had to be examined and treated, and vaccinated. I had to get spayed too. Right after that, I went into foster but I'm hoping that I'll be in my forever home before summer starts. Paws crossed. I'm microchipped and heart worm negative. I'm very, very sweet. I'm house trained. I'm very good with people and other dogs. Piper and I saw a cat at the vets and it seemed very, very interesting. Who knows why we were wandering but I'm ready to find my new people and go a-wandering no more! I'm ready for some summer fun and adventure and learning all that I can to be the best pup you've ever had. xox, Gracie

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. I have been treated for heart worms, and I'm 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 fund.

Hankie - ADOPTED
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE GENEROUS FOLK WHO DONATED TO MY MEDICAL FUND! 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. I did have hip dysplasia but I had FHO surgery on my left leg and AGB is raising money to pay for my right one as well (even if I am adopted), which is scheduled for the near future. 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 my 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.

Jethro - ADOPTED
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.
