Trixie Dog Toy Sheep
Advantages: Cute, it squeaks
Disadvantages: Not very robust
As you may know from my other reviews, Eddie my gorgeous black cocker spaniel is something of a pampered pooch. Rarely does my husband come home from Pets at home without some sort of chew, bone, ring or toy for Eddie, much to the disgust of the cat who hardly gets any treats. Generally if he comes back with a cuddly dog toy it's because my little girl has picked it out and said that Eddie would love it. This is how Sammy the sheep ended up coming to our house (we named it Sammy!).
This toy is specifically sold as a dog toy and I have to say that Eddie did like him although unfortunately Sammy did not last very long. It's says on the packaging that this sheep is particularly robust and high quality. Whilst I would say that it is definitely well made it is definitely not that robust. I think it lasted about three days in our house before Eddie had managed to chew through a few of the legs and get the plastic squeaker out of them and basically just ripped the poor little sheep apart until I finally got fed up of the stuffing coming out and being strewn all over the house and I threw poor Sammy away.
Sammy is very cute looking. He is a black and white sheep. Most of his fur is white and it is made of that bobbled material so it looks like a proper sheeps fur and it quite soft and fun to hug. My little girl really liked it which is the reason why she picked it out for Eddie and liked to hug it and play in conjunction with Eddie with this toy. The mouth and nose area on the sheep is black as are the hooves on all of its legs. Its quite an unusual looking sheep though as it has really long legs. I can only think it is made this way so your dog can really gets its teeth around the legs and maybe carry it around like this.
The front legs of the sheep have squeakers in them, the type that when you squeeze the leg the leg will make a dog toy squeaky noise. It was these I think that were the first to go as Eddie was able to chew or basically rip through the fabric and get to the plastic squeaker and rip it out of the leg. The plastic bit is basically just a big sort of air bubble that moves in and out when you squeeze it which is what makes the noise and once that part had gone the legs were sort of useless after that.
The back legs of the sheep had rattles in them and so the whole thing made a noise when Eddie walked with it in his mouth or played with it. There was also a squeaker in the body section of the sheep too. So in conclusion this toy was fun while it lasted and it did not last long although I guess for £5 it wasn't too expensive but I was hoping it had lasted a little bit longer than it did. We will just have to stick with thick rubber toys from now on!!
