My rescue dog loves this toy. We are on Jerry number 4. Zigman hauls this toy everywhere. He loves it. It stays a whole giraffe for about 3 months and then we have 1/2 giraffes after that. He loves his 1/2 giraffes as much as the whole ones. We were in a panic when we could not get a replacement one over the summer. We replace it when he's carrying around a pile of string. His teeth are clean because he chews on this toy.
Love this chew toy since it is safe. It lasts a long time because the rope is tightly wound. Just trim the pieces as they loosen to maintain the safety of the toy.
