Barkleigh is the daughter of our Redbone Coonhound, Anna. She is a sweet girl. Her father was a very large and agressive German Shepherd who held Anna hostage until he got her pregnant. When Barkleigh was small she got cutup by some sheetmetal that was used for a makeshift yard for the mother and her pups. If you are looking for an animal with perfect appearance, you don't want Barkleigh.But if you want a sweet animal who can also serve as a watchdog, Barkleigh may be the one. She is so large I would not recommend her to a family with small children.
