This ball possession is not uncommon at all.....I had a female I imported like this. She was not aggressive AT ALL - just if she got it, it was hers! You could get bitten holding it up high as she would jump and grab - got a few bruises that way, never an actual bite.....she was the same way with a sleeve...you could NOT let her possess it and take it off her easily.

Always have a second ball and trade her, get her to out the ball by offering the other one....very common way to get through this. I always told people with pups from this line to start off with "two ball" because of this tendency to possession in this female's progeny.
