Whats better than this toy, a 12 inch dog. Alot! Unfortunately this toy's quality has slipped quite a bit in the last couple years and I always see faults in the making of it. The stitching needs a complete overall re-do. If your looking for a toy that you want destroyed fast or for a dog that doesn't destroy toys this is it for them. I know that this being a stuff animal it's easy to destroy but with good stitching it makes a toy a little more durable.
It's a cute toy but for durability it needs some work.
I give this toy 4 paws out of 10.
