We purchased this toy for our English bulldog puppy who eats EVERYTHING! We have had this toy since September 2009 and knock on wood, its still around. Teeth marks are evident but again the toy is still in one piece and it hasnt been chewed through yet. Compared to the plastic toys that are sold at Petsmart, Petco etc. this one really has stood the test of time.
I must say if it makes the dog happy and he leaves my shoes alone I may have to buy one in every color!
