SARAH
Hello friends, I’m Sarah. I am a 13 year old, 66 lb, golden girl. My owners had an unexpected hardship and had to find another place for me to live. I am an extremely sweet girl that gets along with all pets and humans. I am also a very good girl during car rides. It’s been a while since I have seen a doctor, so AGB is having their Vet take great care of me. I have been described as “a velcro dog” because I really like to be close to people. I am calm and loving, but do have some medical issues due to my age. I would be best suited for a quiet home without young children or stairs. I may be older, but I still have so much love to give. I just want to be someone’s very special girl. If you have room in your heart and home for a sweet senior girl, I would love to meet you. Oh, and through AGB’s Senior to Senior program, my adoption fees will be waived for adopters 65 and older.

MAIZIE
My name is Maizie and I’m an 8 month old, 46 lb. Goldendoodle girl. A Good Samaritan found me in a ditch and rescued me. I was taken to a Vet clinic and have been staying there ever since. The nice people there tried to find me a home, but decided they needed some help and reached out to AGB. So, I am here now and everyone says they are sure I will be “forever home” soon. I’m a typical puppy, who has lots of energy and loves to play. I am a sweet girl and I love everyone. I am friendly with other dogs but I don’t have any experience with cats. I am ready and waiting to have a family of my very own and I promise to be your very best friend. If you think a girl like me would be a good fit for your family submit an adoption application and be sure to ask to meet me, Maizie!

HUDSON III - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi friends, I’m Hudson! I’m about 7 years old. I came to AGB because my owner got ill and could no longer care for me. I am sweet and energetic and have been described as “just a happy, 79 lb bulldozer”. Ha! You see, I’ve lived my life outdoors, so I need to work on my inside manners and realizing that that a big fella like me needs to be aware of my size and learn to be calm at times. I am friendly and don’t have a mean bone in my body, but because I get really excited and might knock into things while I’m learning the ropes, I would be best suited for a home without small children. I love people and I am curious about those things you call cats. I had some bad ear infections and needed my shots and to be neutered, but AGB is taking care of those things for me, and otherwise I’m a pretty healthy boy. If you are in need of a best friend and playmate and can spend time with me playing and teaching me all the things, submit an adoption application and ask to meet me.

TATER - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi there everypawdy! My name is Tater and I am a 1 & ½ year old happy little 48 lb, fella. I wound up in a shelter, which while those nice folks kept me safe and fed, I wasn’t really happy there. Luckily, they contacted AGB and before long they came in and gave me my freedom ride to rescue. I am sweet, friendly with dogs and people, and I listen well and am eager to learn. I guess I am pretty good in a car too because the AGB volunteer who gave me a ride fell in love and almost took me home! I am healthy and AGB is making sure I am getting my shots and neuter and ready for my forever family. If you think I would be a good fit for your home, be sure to submit an adoption application and ask to meet Tater.

KIO - PLEASE DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND
Howdy folks, Kio here. I am a 3 ½ year old fella who ended up as what they call “stray”. Efforts to find my owners failed and I was in desperate need of someone to take me in. Of course, the big old softies at AGB couldn’t say no to a handsome dude like me and came to get me right away. I haven’t been here long, but they already know I am a good boy on a leash and I know some commands. I am also incredibly sweet! Sadly, the doctors found out I am heartworm positive, so I will need to start treatment for that right away. I also have an ear infection, some wounds on my paws, a lesion on my head and a growth inside my ear. They’re going to take care of all these things and get me neutered and vaccinated so that I will be in tip top shape when my forever family comes along. As you can imagine, I might run up quite a Vet bill, so if you would like to help AGB pay for my care, just click ‘more’ to make a donation. Thanks friends!

OTIS II - PLEASE DONATE TO MEDICAL FUND
Hi friends! My name is Otis and I am a 5 year old golden boy. I have lived most of my life outside but I am house broken and I love to be indoors, so I’m looking forward to spending the rest of my days as an inside dog. I get along well with humans and other dogs. I don’t have much cat experience, but I am definitely curious about them! Unfortunately, AGB found out that I have these nasty things called heartworms, which is really sad because there is medicine that can easily prevent dogs from getting those and they can actually be fatal if left untreated! So, it’s a really good thing AGB took me in because their super duper doctors are going to give me the care I need to get well and move on to my forever family. AGB thinks they have found a great family for me, but I need to get healthy so I can be adopted. Any donation you can make to help with my medical care would be appreciated.

FAWN II - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi everyone! My name is Fawn. I was found stray and taken to a shelter until AGB came to get me. I’m a 4 year old, 72 lb girl who is a sweet and docile little lady. I have an eye infection, but the doctors are taking care of that for me. Luckily, AGB had some people waiting for a girl just like me, so it looks like I will be adopted soon. I can’t wait to be forever home.

BRUISER - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi, my name is Bruiser and I’m a 11 month old, 50 lb Golden Doodle boy. My brother and sisters and I ended up with AGB because the breeder who had us had a string of tragic family events and wasn’t able to adopt us out like she normally would. I am a fun and friendly fella and as you can see, I like to play ball! I get along well with other dogs and I am house and crate trained. If you like Doodles and need a new friend, I hope you will come meet me soon!

FIONA
Hello, hello everyone! I am fabulous Fiona, a gorgeous 2-year-old, 68 lb. Great Pyrenees girl. I was in a shelter and they asked AGB to take me in and help find my perfect forever home. I’m in pretty good health but had a nasty ear infection and needed to be spayed. The AGB Vet is taking care of everything for me, so I am just concentrating on getting well and meeting my forever people. I get along great with kids but probably need to be an only pet. If you are looking for a beautiful girl to make your family complete, submit an adoption application and be sure to tell AGB you want to meet me.

SALEM - ADOPTION PENDING
My name is Salem, and as you can see, I am an extremely handsome boy. I am half Golden Retriever and half Border Collie. I am 2 years old and weigh 65 lbs. I am energetic and like playing in a nice, big, fenced yard. I have been around kids in the past. I can get a little anxious with other dogs, so I could be an only dog or with an experienced owner and just the right canine sibling. I have been through doggy training and know a lot of commands. I am house and crate trained. If you are interested in adding a handsome black beauty to your family, submit an application and ask to meet sweet Salem.

DODGER - ADOPTION PENDING
My name is Dodger and I am a 2 year old golden boy. I had a rough start to my life. You see, I was hit by a car as a puppy and now I have some nerve damage in my spine and tail area. Because of this, I don’t have mobility in my tail and I have some bladder issues and need to wear a diaper. My owners abandoned me so I wandered into a nearby family’s yard. Luckily for me, they took me in and got me to AGB. I am a happy and handsome fella and I love all humans, including kids! I am also friendly with dogs and cats and I love to go on walks and play fetch. I am a sweetheart who just needs to find a forever family to love me and care for me. AGB's doctors would like to try some medication on me to help with my mobility and potty issues, but it will require close monitoring for a while, so I really need an adopter who can be home more to keep an eye on me. If you would like to meet me, please submit an adoption application and let AGB know you want to meet Dodger. And if you can spare a few dollars to help with my medical bills, just click “more” to make a donation.
