ALMOST NEEDED AN EMERGENCY VET-- AVOID TOY AT ALL COSTS
on May 15, 2012
DO NOT BUY! I bought this toy for my 7 month old, 14 lb, chihuahua/shih tzu mix. At first he didn't like it at all, but then warmed up to it and began playing with it quite a bit. The toy withstood his intense chewing, which was great. While playing with the rings a few days later, the blue ring with the point on it got lodged around his bottom jaw behind his back molar teeth, with the blue point stabbing his tongue. He immediately began screaming and crying and throwing himself around in an attempt to pull or shake of this horrible toy. They were the most horrible and terrifying screams I have ever heard. I immediately ran to him to help, but could not get the toy loose. After grabbing the ring and wiggling it, trying to turn it, holding his jaw while trying to slide it off, nothing worked, and he was still screaming and absolutely terrified. Ultimately I had to grab the ring and pull upwards, completely lifting my poor puppy off of the ground by this ring around his bottom jaw, intensely wiggling it, until it finally came off. In the process of fighting to get this thing off of him, my finger got cut open (either by one of the rings, or by one of his teeth), and my poor puppy defecated on himself (and everywhere else around us) out of fear. To anyone considering purchasing this toy, please don't, it is not safe.
