Thank you for your purchase and your review. We are sorry to hear that the Tuff Ocean Creature Alligator toy did not last as expected. Something to please keep in mind with our toys, our toys are not chew toys. Our toys are for interactive play time between the two of you (toss, fetch, catch and tug). if or when you see your buddy start to play with the toy alone or gnaw on it, we recommend please taking the toy away and replacing it with a safe and digestible chew option. When the two of you are ready to play together again, please reintroduce our toy and enjoy the time together! This is not only for the longevity of the toy, but more importantly the safety of your Dog! We hope this info is helpful on your quest to find a toy that fits you and your dogs play needs. Thank you, VIP Products/TUFFY® Dog Toys

I have a great dane (senior) who in the past has killed any toy in seconds. this one is well made and still surviving. If she was a puppy it would eventually be destroyed but this has lasted longer than anything shes ever played with.

Heavy duty dog toy

This is a great toy for a large dog! It’s very a heavy duty well made toy. My dog wasn’t too sure about it at first because it isn’t soft and easy to bite but once I started squeaking it he liked it. It’s water proof as well but we haven’t tried it in the lake yet. I received this product in exchange for my honest review.

This dog toy is no joke. Super tough, super durable. My dog normally tears through a "tough" toy within hours if not a day or two. It's been about a week now and the alligator still has all of his limbs in tact. Sometime I worry that my dog may hurt himself whipping the dog toy back and forth, but he is loving it. I look forward to adding more toys from this company to his collection. If your dog tends to go through toys rather quickly as mine normally does this is definitely the dog toy for him! With Christmas coming up our dog will have a variety of toys from this company to open up!!

This alligator toy definitely feels tuff! It is made of a thick fabric and is actually heavier than it looks. It was also a lot bigger than I expected. It is almost as big as my shih tzu but he is still able to drag it around by its tail or legs. The toy has a squeaker in the stomach and another in the mouth. My dog doesn’t like the sound of some squeakers, but he seems to like this one. He has only had it for a week and has already torn through the fabric in the mouth. Inside the mouth there is a pink fabric. He shredded that and then underneath is another layer of a thick white fabric. He also got through that and pulled out the squeaker and stuffing. The squeaker is enclosed in another layer of fabric that is sewn inside of the toy. He hasn’t gotten through the last layer of fabric to the squeaker, but I’m sure it won’t be long. The rest of the toy seems like it would be harder to get through. I think my dog just found the weak spot. Overall this is a good dog toy and I would buy more from this line.

This toy is huge compared to what I was expecting! However, my pup loves it! It is well made and I believe it will hold up to even rough play. Plus it is super cute!

First things first this baby is a good 18 inches long it's not a small dog toy! So if you are looking for a cute little plushy this isn't your toy. This is a rough, tough, big, bad, sturdy, squeaky alligator! The 18 month old calls it Ally and he likes to play with our pug with it. Yes, out of all of the dogs the pug has claimed this and only her and the baby may play with it. He will chase her around the house saying grrrr and she will run, turn around growl (while wagging her tail), run some more, wait until he's near his play mat, knock him over, drag the alligator away by the mouth and all you hear is this squeak which makes him giggle and follow her. It's the best game ever. When we got it I expected it to be put to the destroy test by the big boy in the family but I guess he wasn't destined to test this ones durability out. Here's to giggles, growls and wiggly butts/tails!

If you are looking for a tough toy to withstand heavy chewers, this is the one for you! I have a 90-lb. retriever that loves to carry around his "babies" and eventually stops and destuffs them. This one has lasted well (over a week, which in our house is a record). The toy is very well constructed and overstuffed so it does make it a little difficult for him to carry it around (he has to grab it by the foot because he can't get his mouth around it in the center). I would highly recommend this one!
