Barley (now Lexie) is doing great in her new home, she loves to chase her ball, and has lots of new toys that she plays with.  Lexie also gets to go to work with me some days, and enjoys the extra attention she receives from co-workers.  She is getting stronger everyday by climbing the stairs at work to get to my office.

Lexie is a lot of fun, has a great personality, is learning new commands, and getting a lot of TLC. She’s not a velcro golden, but has become attached to me and does like to know where I am (I think it’s because I have treats!).  Everyone loves Lexie and she loves everyone.


Thank you to all of the people that have been involved with bringing her from China, and providing the best care possible to ensure that she had a second chance.  She is, and will always be, spoiled and deeply loved!







This is Barley (#3329), a quiet (relatively) and obedient (relatively), six year old golden girl. She arrived in the United States on February 1, 2020. Before coming to the US, GBR knew she had one, perhaps two, bad hips. Near the end of February, she had surgery on her left to remove a piece of the femur head that was rubbing on the inside of her hip joint. She is scheduled for surgery on her right hip in June.

Barley loves her toys but should not be given fluffy stuffies unsupervised – she will rip them apart and begin eating them. Stuffies with no stuffing is fine as are balls and kongs. She is a good fetcher.  We know she is feeling better because she has discovered that she can now raise up on her rear legs and counter-surf.

Barley was adopted on June 8, 2020
