Got balls?

Meet Barlee! Barlee is the son of Booster and Mysti, who decided 8 years ago, unbeknownst to us, to have a family! Barlee stole our hearts and has become an integral part of our family. He enjoys playing with balls. His favorite are racquet balls and blinkie balls, but he will take whatever you are willing to throw for him. He never tires of playing fetch. Believe me, we've tried. He will keep going and going and going......nothing in life is better than chasing a ball for Barlee! He will leap off a cliff (though he hasn't yet) to retrieve a ball! He is an extremely loving, cuddly dog who loves to lay his head on your shoulder. Thankfully, he doesn't snore loudly like his mother did, so he spends the night in our room, usually in his "den" under our bed. In the cold winter months he sleeps very close to his father, Booster. He adores all the humans and dogs in the house! Unfortunately, Barlee was attacked a few years ago by a dog he thought was friendly. Fortunately, he survived. However, he suffered from extreme fear aggression for many years. He has since made tremendous strides and though he will never be the "life of the party" he will tolerate almost any dog now! We are so proud of the progress he has made. He is an exceptional dog and one of the most loving creatures on earth! Here is a picture of him just a few days old!
