AGB ORPHAN INFO DURING COVID-19
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT 5/21/2020: AGB CANNOT ACCEPT NEW ADOPTION APPLICATIONS AT THIS TIME. THIS IS A TEMPORARY SITUATION DUE TO THE UNAVAILABILITY OF ADOPTABLE PUPS AND UNTIL THE MANY APPLICATIONS WE HAVE RECEIVED OVER THE PAST TWO MONTHS ARE PROCESSED. WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE. During this unusual time of social distancing and safer- at-home, most rescues and shelters are adopting out pups very quickly. We have seen a decrease in owner surrenders over the past few months. AGB has had very few orphans available for adoption in April and now May. Many, many folks have applied for adoption during this time and our list of approved applications is long. Consequently, the wait for an AGB Golden orphan may be a while and there will be delays in processing new applications. Our AGB orphans are being quickly re-homed. This is something to be joyful about - that there are fewer dogs in need of rescue. AGB is available to rescue any Golden Retriever or Golden Retriever mix in need, no matter the age or medical condition of the pup. We are a 100% volunteer rescue organization that depends solely on donations to help Golden Retrievers. AGB plans to weather this crisis, protecting both dogs and volunteers, and our rescue will be here for the long haul. We hope you will continue to check our website as well as Facebook for future orphan announcements. Thank you for your support!

Teak - DONATE
PLEASE DONATE TO MY MEDICAL FUND! CLICK 'MORE' TO SEE HOW MUCH I NEED. THANK YOU KINDLY! "It's a hard knock life!" Well, hello there. Here I am, a boy of six years old and I've got a lot of problems that need to be taken care of. I should be safe at home getting treats and loving there but instead I was let loose and wandering around town. I'm really lucky though. A nice person saw me wandering and persistently coaxed me to come to her with treats and loving. Boy, I'm sure am glad I took that chance. She called AGB and told them she found a golden with a good temperament and now I'm an AGB orphan. They're taking care of me and boy, do I need it. I'm heart worm positive and I limp (orthopedic issues) and favor my left side. I have an ear infection and my teeth don't look great. So, while it's not a great deal of fun, I'm going on lots of vet appointments. I went to the orthopedic vet and am now getting some medicine for pain and will go back for a recheck and further treatment after I'm neutered (and that really doesn't sound like fun). Then I have an appointment with a dental specialist. They're treating my ears and I've gotten my vaccinations. I'd really like to get back to the treats and loving stuff and give up the hard knock life! I'm bright and alert with beautiful big eyes and my fur is a nice shade of gold. I'm not too big at 40 pounds. So I'm going to bravely go through what I need to do to get as healthy as possible. Because, now that my wandering days are over and after my medical stuff is taken care of, I've been promised I'll get a new home where there will be treats and loving aplenty!

Glory - FULLY FUNDED!
"Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!" I'm singing 'hallelujah' because my life just improved a whole lot! My name is Glory and I'm around 5 years old. A girl's hair (fur) is her crowning beauty and I've lost a lot of mine temporarily because I have a really bad skin condition. And my golden fur was so pretty! And so was I, but I don't feel very pretty right now and I'm itchy and raw. The good news is the vet is doing everything they can with medicines and soothing baths to get me back into shape. My back looked very sad and irritated but I'm healing up fast. The folks that found me wandering wanted to keep me but they just couldn't afford my vet bills to get me healthy again so they called AGB. I'm now officially an AGB pup and I am hoping that some nice, kind people will donate to my medical fund. I weigh 53 pounds. I am heart worm negative. I'll have to wait until my skin improves to get spayed, vaccinated and microchipped but, fingers crossed, that will happen soon so I can go into foster, or better yet, find a new family and home. Then I'll be a pretty girl again. The folks that found me said I am great with dogs, cats and people, even strangers. That I am very sweet and affectionate. My glory days are in front of me and I just know I'm going to have the best life!

Miller - ADOPTED
May 19, 2020 - Miller is living the high life with his foster-failure parents (thank you for fostering him and falling head-over-heals for each other). Who wouldn't fall for that darling face? Between the very cute bio and his little tongue sticking out, every beer drinker in America wanted him! He was chained with a cable at his former home due to his Houdini escape methods but he was probably just trying to find his "true" peeps. Now that he has, he isn't going anywhere without them. All three look pretty proud and happy. Stay safe and warm, cutie pie! ******************************************** And "It's Miller Time!" Hello! My name is Miller and it's my time to shine. Cute boy alert - I'm 3 years old and I weigh 68 pounds. I'm looking for a new place to call home where, not only can I shine, but I'll be your number one boy. My previous owner had several dogs and I really wanted all the time and attention. I'm kind of picky about the dogs and cats I associate with but people - wow - I love people. Nobody is a stranger and I'm real fond of getting pats from everyone. My favorite thing is to lay on the couch with you and get all the petting you want to give. And I'm clever too; I figured out I can not only jump over the fence but I figured out a way to go under it too at my old home. A touch of Houdini! So then I used to get chained up in the yard and I'd rather stay in the house when you're gone. And not in a crate, please, for all day - that's too stressful for me. I'm house trained so you don't have to worry. I whine and pace by the door if I need to go out. I'd love to have someone work on my leash skills with me and maybe even take me on a jog. I already know "sit" and "come" commands. I just got neutered and I'm vaccinated, microchipped and heart worm negative. A pretty healthy, handsome, sweet boy who longs to share your "Miller Time".
