Coltrane the Ladies Man

Here I am just chillin' with Miley (AGA Molly). She doesn't know about Maggie, the black lab I wooed at the beach last week. Let's just keep that between us, k?

Anastasia's Story

My last job was to have puppies. I did it for 6 years. A lot. The last time I only had 4 puppies so my boss fired me. In the puppy breeding business that means I got dropped off at an animal shelter. Thank goodness AGA came and got me - whew!! They told me to keep my furry little head held high. They said not to feel bad about losing my old job because, in fact, it was a crappy job and there is a much better life out there. Sounded good to me!

And they were right!!! I went to live with a foster family. They pampered me - I got my very own "fresh start makeover"...grooming, a spay appointment, shopping! I really liked these people but I knew it was just temporary. And then the best thing happened on my 6th birthday this past Sunday. My fosters decided to adopt me! My birthday present that day was a brand new red heart shaped “Annie” tag for my collar. It's official - I'm now part of a true forever family! The best birthday EVER.

Oscar is Adopted!

I got a family today!! I have a mom, a dad, and a furry bro named Ace. Ace used to be called Blake and he's from AGA too - how cool is that? Big slurpy kisses to everyone who helped me!

Alfie's Friend Darby Needs a Home

I know y'all are golden retriever lovers and so am I! My best friend Alfie is a golden. We have been pretty much living on the streets together until AGA found us in a subdivision and offered us a ride to a better life. Of course, Alfie found a foster home right away and off he went. Becaue I'm a chocolate lab mix, I wasn't quite as popular, I guess. I swear I'm a really good 1-year-old boy and not too big - about 45 pounds. I'd LOVE to see Alfie again and maybe go live with him and a new family who wants us both. But if not, I hope someone will find me a loving family of my very own. They say I need some confidence building and knowledge that I am safe now. I guess that's true. So the best home is one with another dog and either no kids or kids that are teens or older. If the family wants both Alfie and me, AGA is not going to charge an adoption fee for me - yippee!! It's like a two-for-one! But, if it's just me they are still making a deal - half the standard fee for a dog my age ($175). I'm up to date on all vaccines. Maybe there's room in your heart for a fellow golden lover who happens to be a lab? I hope so!!
