Ruby, at eight months old, seems to be at least part German Shepherd. She has powerful jaws. In the half hour or so I’d visited with Ruby’s mom, she gnawed off probably a quarter of this Knee Cap, breaking it into tiny bone bits. None of the bits are sharp or splintery, since a Knee Cap is constructed differently than most other bones. It’s super tough, and it’s rounded. And it makes a great chew toy for teething puppies. Ruby is a big puppy.
Ruby is a sweet girl, a rescue, and one of three dogs in the home. Right now she’s a non-stop chewer, so the Knee Cap from Jones made a great short term chew. For smaller puppies, like last week’s Tansy pup, the Knee Cap is absolutely perfect. For an older, larger puppy like Ruby, with a powerful jaw and still teething, I recommended her mom pick up a Beef Shank Bone from Jones. It’s our absolute strongest bone and will take much longer to demolish. Hopefully. Ruby has already taken apart part of her sturdy wire crate. She’s a challenge, that’s for sure.
But she’s a beauty, so mom keeps looking for chews which are up to the challenge. I think she’ll be more than happy with the Beef Shank Bone. For most dogs and puppies, though, the Beef Knee Cap is going to be a great teething solution long-term. Know your dog. Know your breed.
Do you have a teething puppy? I’m betting on the Jones Natural Chews Beef Knee Cap being a great solution to your chewed up shoes problem. Not only is the Knee Cap 100% all natural and 100% grown and produced in the USA, it’s the perfect size and shape for most puppy mouths. And all God’s puppies said amen! Your teething puppy needs to soothe it’s aching teeth and gums with something hard to gnaw on. Give it the best.
