They gave us one when we brought Mox home from the pound. She chewed through it in less than a minute. I'm surprised the ball with the rope lasted as long as it did. I just didn't think she would swallow any of it.

Also beware pulling anything out of your dog that is in your dog like a rope toy or string (thinking cat) especially from the other end. Call/take the dog to the vet - there could be something wrapped around the GI system...and that can be bad.

Glad that all is well for Moxy!

Thankfully, I caught it before it got too far into her digestive system. Not sure I have the stomach or stones to pull anything out of the back end.

Question

Maybe this should be made into a sticky.

So many don't realize the issues this toy can create. The labels are always covered with all the feel good stuff like cleans the teeth, good exercise etc and nothing about the dangers.

I agree. I never thought about the dangers until I got a GSD...especially one who likes to destroy and obliterate her toys. I was told the black Kong toys and larger ball toys would be better for her since they are more durable. She will kill a tennis ball in 4 seconds flat. So, we have to really be careful about her toys.

FYI about tennis balls. Not good for their teeth, wears them down like sand paper. And at some point becomes to small and can be swallowed. It does happen.
