Decent toy, but not indestructible,
This review is from: KONG Genius Mike Dog Toy, Extra Large (Colors vary) (Misc.)
I have a small (12 pounds), fat dachsund who, when he smells foods seeks and destroys anything in its path. I have a couple of the standard Kong toys and he hasn't chipped off, broken or otherwise chewed through them. This, however, within the first couple days of having, he chewed off small bits of it. Certainly not anything big enough to hurt him (smaller than a pencil eraser), but anything being broken off isn't good. Not sure if I got a defective one since I've only had excellent results with other Kong toys, but be careful with this one for small pieces coming off.

I really appreciate your review, esp the detail that you own a dachsund. I have a dorkie (dachsund/yorkie) who has taken after the dachsund side when it comes to chewing. I find it very difficult to buy him toys that he won't destroy (He has even destroyed toys that are supposed to be industructable!), so you just helped me to save some $. We have had to throw away 75% of the toys we've gotten him.

Dachshunds are large dogs with small bodies. I recommend getting a larger size for their larger jaws [jaws larger than typical small dog].

yes you can forget this toy. this is very thin rubber not thick like other kong toys. my small (15 pounds) korean, took a total of 60 minutes to destroy it. and now i have a sofa full of blue chunks. he cannot do the same with the one that looks "like a small turd"(he's been trying to demolish that one for 4 months) and so far not "the one that is basically tennis ball/hexagon with many slats"(he's been working on it 3 hrs so far)
