Sandy's Story...
Hi my name is Sandy - I am a very handsome, 7 year old male weighing in at 52 pounds. The Doc says I need to put on some weight; no worries there now that AGB is making sure I am eating a good diet. My former family contacted AGB to see if they could find a good home for me. My human sibling had allergies and evidently they said I was making her sick. I guess it was best to leave so she wouldn't be sick anymore; but it sure made me sad to leave. I do enjoy being around other dogs and even enjoy a cat or two. I think kids are pretty cool too. One of my favorite things to do is going on car rides. I am a happy go lucky guy who just enjoys life. Unfortunately there is a bit of bad news regarding my health. It appears I am in the early stages of Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) whatever that is. Anyhow no biggy, it was found early enough so I can get started with treatment. There was a double whammy however, I am also heartworm positive, so after my CHF is under control I will be treated for the heartworms. Phewww! It’s all about attitude and mine is great. So I know I will be healthy and strong in no time. As sad as I was to leave my family, the best thing that happened to me was AGB, because they are going to make me all better and I know it will cost a lot of money. In the end I am one lucky boy. In no time I will be ready to Rock my new forever family's world. Remember, stay positive and good things will come your way, that's my motto. More to come, Love Sandy Update: 9 July - Just thought I would update everyone on my progress so far. I have been undergoing my treatment for my CHF. I am doing really good with my medicine. I have maybe 2 more weeks and then the heartworm treatment will begin. I heard the folks at AGB say that I will need to be on my CHF medication for the rest of my life. I heard them say that the medicine will cost between $150 - $200 a month for my new forever family. I am not sure what all that means, but I am praying there is a special family out there who believes, like I do, that I am special enough to be a part of their family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sandy, 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.
