Dexter's Story...
UPDATE October 8th -- Dexter here and I just wanted to update folks on how I have been doing. My foster Mom is taking wonderful care of me. It appears I have some sort of allergies going on, so I am taking allergy medicine so I don’t feel miserable from the effects it can have on me. I also may need other medications occasionally if my allergies flare up, as it can cause me to itch and my poor ears can bother me. The Doctor has told me I take some of the same medications that humans take when they suffer from allergies. Pretty cool, huh? My Foster Mom has also been feeding me hypo-allergenic food and treats to help keep my allergy reactions to an absolute minimum. She is really going all out to make sure that I find my forever home with the family that can provide me with loving care, just as she has! The Doctor tells me I will probably have these allergies for the rest of my life, but that is okay, with a little TLC I am going to be just fine! I look forward to meeting my special forever family really soon! Love, Dexter
I’m an 8 to 9-year-old male looking for a human with a good heart to help me out. Sometimes life can be tough for us four-legged guys, just like it can be for humans. I spent some time, too much time, wandering the roads and not knowing where to go. The days became a blur as I became hungrier and weaker. I don’t know what would have happened to me if a Good Samaritan in Enterprise hadn’t picked me up and got me some help from the rescue folks here with AGB. They are giving me medicated baths to treat my mange and they think I must be better now, because I’m able to move around more. As you can see from my photos, I need to be with a kind person who will give me some time to gain weight and grow back my Golden fur. I’m a good boy who would become a loyal companion to the right person who would give me the time to become spiffy and frisky again. Will you become the most important person in my life?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dexter, a BIRMINGHAM Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever for sale in BIRMINGHAM, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in BIRMINGHAM.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in BIRMINGHAM already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a BIRMINGHAM breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Golden Retriever breeders who help with Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in BIRMINGHAM paves the way for another one to be saved.
