After sustaining a head wound, James was rotated back to the states where he was given a special gift from the Dogs 4 Warriors organization which pairs disabled veterans with service dogs. This gift was a 90 lb. German Shepard named Barrett who tore through everything so James set his sights on making a better ball. The Barrett ball is designed as a single piece of solid natural rubber. All of the profits from sales of the Barrett Ball go back to Dogs 4 Warriors. Available in 3 sizes the Barrett Ball is priced from $7.00 to $21.00. Click here to purchase now!
