Our maltipoo only likes this brand of stuffed toy. We used to find them at retail stores but they no longer carry them. She loves all of the animals and carries them with her wherever she goes. If your dog is a chewer I'm not sure if it will survive though. We have a dachshund that visits and he loves it too but he chews the heck out of it. When he comes we put it up because sometimes they will fight over it.
