ToyShoppe® Flatty Fox Squeaker Dog Toy
Great for smaller dogs!
This is the third one we've purchased in three years, which is excellent considering how hard our Jack Russel/Shih Tzu mix girls are on their toys! No mess, even when they finally manage to rip it to shreds. The squeakers are usually the first things to go, I'm not sure how they manage it, but after several weeks, they'll manage to extract the squeakers (I suspect that my husband helps with that part because he hates the squeakers..lol). They wash well and hold up well under relatively heavy play. A great buy if you have a smaller dog, it wouldn't be appropriate for a larger dog because of the length of the toy (approximately one and a half feet long).

dogs happy; owner disappointed
I searched for just the right plush toys for two energetic lab mixes. They adore plush toys so that was my goal (rather than rubber, for example). The dogs were delighted: they were eager for the toys right away and played with them, or kept them nearby, all day. I chose "flatties" so there would not be stuffing all over and to prevent possible ingestion. So far, so good, but the squeakers gave out almost right away and the toys were easily torn apart. The dogs were entertained, but I was looking for more than a one day toy.

One of my puppy's favorite toys!
I bought this for my small Boston Terrier mix puppy when she was about 8 weeks old and it quickly became one of her favorite toys. She likes to make it squeak over and over again, but her favorite thing to do is pounce on it, grab it, and shake it around in her teeth as I slowly drag it across the floor or dangle it above her head.
She got bored with it after playing with it every day for a few weeks, so I hid it and gave it back to her a few days later and suddenly it was like a brand new toy all over again. Now 8 weeks later she still loves it!

My dog loves it!
I read the positive reviews on PetSmart about the Flatty Plush toys, so I went there tonight and picked up the fox for my Beagle mix. He grabbed it out of the bag! He eyeballed it right away and hasn't stopped playing with it for the last 4 hours since I got home. He's been carrying it up and down the stairs, squeaking it each time he bites on it. I love that it doesn't have filling. He likes floppy things (socks, etc.) so this is perfect for him. It has 2 squeakers so I can hear him playing with it. He won't let it go. I want to get him another one, maybe the raccoon. I got him some other toys that have filling. I like that this Flatty is unfilled. I haven't introduced them to him to the other toys yet. I'm not sure if he will like them as much as this. It looks like it's easy to wash, but I would do so in a mesh bag. I recommend the Flatty Plush.
