Our little toy rat terrier can destroy just about any toy in record breaking time. If you hand him a Loofa dog you might as well just toss him some cash to eat instead, it will last about as long. He loves to tug with his 30lb older 'brother,' and since this snake didn't have much stuffing we decided to give it a try. The first one lasted several weeks, which is unheard of with most toys like this. Only two fabric toys have survived longer, and beileve me... we have been through LOTS of toys. The dogs had a lot of fun, but eventually the little rat did succeed it ripping open a seem at the "neck" of the snake. It of course it didn't take long before he happily succeeded in creating a pile of fluff. I must say the fabric held up quite while, relatively at least. We bought a second snake, hoping it might last as long as the first. Sadly, the second snake didn't last long at all. The first snake has white and black markings, the second was the black and gold spotted print. I don't know if there was any difference in the fabrics, or if he had just learned the weak points of the toy. I would recommend buying this one for tug-loving dogs, but once it is destroyed it might not be worth replacing depending on your dog's skills in toy destruction.
