Good toy but not for chewers,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: JW Pet Company iSqueak Ball Rubber Dog Toy, Medium, Colors Vary (Misc.)
My 6 month old puppy loved this ball! He's a blue heeler, collie, terrier mutt - 30 pounds. He carried the ball everywhere and loved making it squeak. The squeak wasn't annoying either, thankfully. However, after about a 1.5 weeks the air hole where the squeaker was exposed started to split and tear away. By the end of the 2nd week we had to throw the ball away as the pup had started to eat the rubber in chunks. We replaced it with another 3" red ball, solid, made by another company and it's been going strong for over a month now.

What other company makes the replacement ball for your chewer? I'd appreciate specifics. I have a Pit Bull.

Ditto - I have a blue heeler with jaws of steel!

If you haven't found anything yet, you might try the Kong Red throw ball, or the Kong Black extreme. My 9 year-old German Shepherd has used them for over 8 years. They have a nice chew action for him; they are soft enough for him to hold on to and catch. In the winter (in snow), they are like a slurpee. At the same time, they've been durable enough to last about a year.
I would suggest watching your dog for awhile to make sure he is one of the rare dogs who can chew this. But, if you spend time playing fetch with your dog, and put it out of reach when you are away, it should work out well.
Also -- do not get the small ball for a large breed dog, as it is a choking hazard, especially when playing ball. I use the large ball for my 80 lb. dog.
