My Yorkshire Terrier female absolutely adores this toy - it is definitely her favourite one! During the day she enjoys playing with it, squeaking it or simply carrying it around in her mouth, chewing the nose: at night, she sleeps curled up next to it. It's adorable and a worthy purchase for me.
Our Golden Retriever also plays with it sometimes, and surprisingly after having it for over a year and experiencing multiple 'tug of war' games, it has held up and looks and feels as good as new. It's definitely well made and strong, I expected it would be destroyed within a matter of weeks when both dogs began playing with it, but I'm happy!
I bought it for around £3/£4 at a local pet store - what a bargain! The dogs have more expensive, specialised toys and still prefer this.
Trixie Plush is, overall a really good dog toy brand of which I would recommend all round based on how good this toy is. I'm so pleased with how it's lasted - not even obtaining a single rip or tear, and I have also put it through the wash machine a good few times with no trouble.
What attracted me to it most was the careful design of it - I really like that the eyes and nose aren't glass as we found this to be a safety hazard for the Yorkshire Terrier, who would chew them off. The 'mop' kind of substance on the back is very soft but strong, and the thickness absorbs any moisture left on the back by the dog. It's approximately 17cm in length and ideal to fit in either dog's mouth. The squeaker makes quite a shrill noise but it isn't overly loud and the thickness of the toy means the dog has to work harder to activate it, making it a fun toy to spend the day exploring!
I would recommend it for any dog, big or small. If this one ever gets worn I will 100% purchase a new one!
