Received this as a "welcome" gift for our then 3 month old German Shepherd. For 2 years this was the gift that kept on giving. Our dog chewed on this thing all the time and only in the past month or so has it shown any sort of damage. It throws well (and bounces all over the place when it lands) and is a great toy for chewers. Have not tried it in the water yet (we don't want to lose it!).
Great buy for your dog!
