This time I cut the sewn-in tag off (because my 9 month dalmation mix pup knows that's the weakest link) but he went for the tail, got it chewed off and removed the squeaker (which to be fair, is sewn into it's own little bag). I got the squeaker away from him at least so he didn't eat that too. I sure wish there were a stuffed toy that could survive my pups.
I don’t usually get soft toys for my dog because she’ll unstuff them immediately. But this one has lasted! Don’t get me wrong, she did bite a hole in it, but there’s so much stuffing that it’s lasting her weeks AND I love that they put the squeaker in a mesh pack that they sew into the lining of the toy. I didn’t have to worry about her choking. Elmer the cozie is built very well, we love it.
I bought these as this brand survived my lab. It last maybe 30 minutes. Destroyed. My pitbulls are 5 months old and everything I've bought from Kong including for aggressive chewers has Not survived them. Don't waste your money unless you like a popped squeaker and stuffing everywhere
Rascal loves "Effie" the elephant. He runs around with it, shakes it furiously, runs under the bed where I have to try to tug it away from him. Right from the beginning, they became best friends. Sturdy yet plush, with lots of places where a little mouth can find to hold onto.
When I purchased this toy, I didn't think it would last long as my puppy is a tough chewer. It has now become her favorite toy, and I am pleased that nothing has been ripped. She carries it around with her everywhere.
“Pinky”has been the only stuffy my catahoula has not destroyed so we have been keeping several in reserve. We recently added a Burmese/mastiff mix to our family and he absolutely loves his so I’m ordering a few more to make sure we still have enough in reserve!!
Probably should have known better. I was hoping that being Kong it would have been made tougher. My Pitbull pup tore through it within 10-15min. Also, the refill squeekers do not work for these. Cute toy though. Not durable at all
I was hoping that since it was a kong it would hold up with my super chewer and it did disappoint. My pup has removed the tail and other parts within minutes. Good for fetch but it did not hold up. Very cute
Highly recommend! Give it a try! My dog is a tough chewer. I didn’t expect this elephant to last very long, as my dog loves to shred his toys. I saw this toy advertised for being made of stronger material perfect for stronger chewers, and it’s TRUE! My dog has chewed 3 tiny holes through the pink fur of the toy, but there is a strong white mesh keeping the stuffing intact. This means that while it won’t last forever, it is going to last much longer than any other toy that doesn’t have this extra barrier. I love it! It’s affordable! Give it a try!
Our 12 pound Maltipoo loves this. It's her toy of choice for her kennel. Makes plenty of different noises and it's almost half as big as she is. She loves grabbing it and slamming it around. For us, it's a winner!
