by MajorLillywhite Smaller than Merrick "The Sarge" Bone in stores
I was happy with the food parts of my order, but Merrick's "The Sarge" bone was disappointingly small. I'd purchased a Merrick "The Sarge" bone 3 days earlier from my local pet supply store, and my large-breed pup was loving it, so I was excited to see I could buy him another one from Chewy. I've included a picture of both "The Sarge" bones (after my pup chewed the meat off) for size comparison.
The bone on the left is "The Sarge" from Chewy. On the right is "The Sarge" from my local pet supply store. You can see for yourself that "The Sarge" from Chewy is quite a bit smaller. It's clear by shape and appearance that they're the same bone, only one is smaller (i.e. I didn't accidentally buy a different bone thinking it was also "The Sarge" - they look too similar for me to be mistaken).
If there'd been weeks or months in between my purchases, the size variation would be more understandable (but still disappointing). Since both were purchased in the same week, it leads me to conclude that Merrick must be distributing smaller treats through channels like Chewy, versus what it sells through brick-and-mortar stores.
FWIW - I also purchased a Merrick Wizzlers Beef 8" Single in my Chewy order, and many Wizzlers reviewers on Chewy stated these treats were also getting smaller and smaller. Something to consider, in case any Wizzler customers want to investigate this further and try a similar size comparison.

Smells weird, smells weird in package, unsure whether to give to my dog.

This thing is a leg with a hoof attached to it. It's yucky to look at and way too big for my medium-sized dog. I never even took it out of the packaging.

I have 2 Catahoula leopard dogs just under a year and they love these bones. I do pick up the pieces from the ends they chew off. They chew them down to 5 inches then I toss them out. Some last longer than others. After all the "good stuff" is eaten off they chew them for weeks after. Love these bones, I buy them often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Koda11andmom These bones are fabulous
I have a large red merle male border collie. Over the years I tried chew sticks, and other fun chewing treats but those treats lasted only moments with my dog. About a year ago I discovered the Sarge bones. WOW, the bone lasted 2 days! Nothing had ever lasted more than an hour tops in 11 years.
When I give my dog a Sarge bone he takes it and does his "happy dog" trot into the livingroom where he settles in for a long, long chew. He loves these bones and if you know Border Collies you know I appreciate the break from the constant "what are we going to do next" looks.

My 3 German Shepherds love these too, especially my 6 month old. Keeps them busy chewing for a long time. Will purchase again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pink This is a large bone.
This bone I wouldn't recommend to puppies or small dogs because it almost the size of the puppy.
