3 years old

LOCATED IN THE MANAWATU AREA. We can take her to Wellington to an approved home. All ARAN adoptions have a mandatory 2 week trial period.

Barley is a friendly, nice natured 2.5 yr old smaller sized Labrador who ended up in the pound through no fault of her own.. She has been used for breeding and has had 2 litters of puppies in the past year. She will be desexed before leaving for her new home.

Conditions of adoption:

CHILDREN – We have been told that Barley is good with children, but we prefer to place her in a home with older children only.

OTHER DOGS – Barley can be a bit grumpy with some other dogs, because she has been living on a farm, and therefore not been well socialised with a variety of other dogs. She was used to living with her husband, a large black labrador. So best match would be another large male desexed dog. , or a home with no other dogs. Her new owners would need to be prepared to manage her on leash while out walking and deal effectively with any dog-socialisation problems that might come up.

CATS – We won’t place Barley in a home with cats, as she has a history of chasing them. No exceptions, sorry.

LIVESTOCK – We have been told that Barley is good with farm animals, but we can’t guarantee that.

Secure fencing and gates are needed for ARAN dogs, and a home visit/property check is required.


As with all ARAN dogs, Barley must sleep indoors and live inside the house with her family. She must never be kept chained up.

Barley has been health checked, de-sexed, vaccinated, microchipped and registered and had flea/worm treatments.

There is an adoption donation of $300.00 to help towards these costs.
