I realize it is not a a Newsflash that puppies like to destroy things. Africa likes to take big things and turn into several little things. The best kind of toys for dogs are the things that are not meant to be toys for dogs. We buy Africa lots of toys and she is mildly amused for a day and then she hunts for things left around that are not meant for her to play with. I think it would be a good idea to not buy lots of toys for your dog at once, but rather to space them out. Introducing a new day every so often is a better idea then several toys at once.
