Captain Buddy's Story...
Captain Buddy here, not shy about introducing myself as one of those Goldens about whom the AGB folks get excited. I am at an absolutely ideal age (six years old) for quickly making the transition to a rest-of-my-life home. This picture was taken a little bit ago, so I have put on a little weight since then. I now weigh about 81 lbs so am already preparing myself for a little less kibble ;-( I love to go on walks and play ball. If you have children I could play fetch and other games with them. I am not real keen on swimming up til now, but maybe with your patience, I could learn. I do LOVE to ride in a boat, and I do really well riding in a car. I know the basic commands like “sit, stay, come, down, and off”. I came to AGB under sad circumstances - My elderly owner passed away, and his son and daughter-in-law took me in. I really miss my human dad and it has made me really sad. At this time I am having to adjust to a lot of new things. My new family already had two Goldens, which were both outside dogs. I was really accustomed to being an “only child” and an inside kinda of lap dog. So as hard as it was, my family realized that under the circumstances, the best thing for me was to find a new and most loving furever family. I am very fortunate to be enjoying one of the coveted foster family situations. They are helping me get used to living without my previous owner and getting ready for my new furever home. I am beginning to adjust to different circumstances, which means meeting new friends. I have come across those other four legged pets they call cats; I had never come across them before, so am slowly having to adjust to them (It has been interesting to say the least!) I know that my new family is out there and looking to fill a void that I am also looking to fill. I will share all my love with you (including my sloppy kisses), in return for all your love and kindness. Please give AGB a call and tell them Captain Buddy is the handsome, trained, prime of life boy for you! It’s time to take the family Christmas card photo. I really want to shine in yours!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Captain Buddy, 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.
