The Barrett Ball

Monday, December 9th

Two remarkable stories of determination and persistence come from the household of disabled war veteran James Hayes, who has a service dog, an 85 LB German-Shepherd named Barrett.

Barrett was given to James by Dogs4Warriors, an organization that helps veterans cope with Traumatic Brain Injury and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, both of which James suffers from, after 3 combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

James and Barrett quickly developed a close bond, but there was a potentially dangerous problem – Barrett routinely tore apart the toughest of chew toys, including those dubbed “indestructible”. So James set his sights on finding a stronger, safer product for his new best friend.
