I have two Siberian huskies, one of which is very hard on dog toys. We have tried many different toys and several hold up better than others. I thought we would give this one a try and surprisingly all of it's arms, wings and tail are still in tact! It is hard to find a sturdy plush toy for dogs, but this one has withstood the "husky" world for a month now. While that doesn't sound long, believe me, for my dogs it is a long time.
