Toy dogs have tiny mouths. When I say toy, I mean fifteen pounds or less, which might not seem tiny to those of you with five pound Yorkies and Pomeranians, but it seems minuscule to the Newfoundland and Great Dane owners out there. Chewy, a twelve pound Affenpinscher mutt, thinks he’s just the right size.
Flash and Patches, 50 pound Australian Shepherd mixes, think twelve pounds is teeny tiny.
Of course, Flash and Patches have been known to chew a Lamb Shank bone to shreds and swallow it whole in about five minutes. Don’t judge, people. I was new to dog blogging and had no idea. Some bones are softer, and some bones are smaller. The Lamb Shank is the smallest, softest bone that Jones sells. It’s designed for the wee dogs.
Bones, as many of you know, are gnawing treats. There are gnawing treats and there are consumption treats. Taffies and jerkies and bullies are meant to be consumed. Bones, knuckles and hooves are meant to be gnawed. Once a bone is small enough to fit entirely inside the dog’s mouth, take it away. The Lamb Shank is small enough to fit in the Aussie mouth. But just right for Affenpinschers and Brussels Griffon.
Here’s the deal – a lot of dogs love to gnaw on bones. Toy dogs love bones, too. But there aren’t a lot of bones produced for toy dogs. Bones are good for a dog’s teeth and gums. So Jones produces an all natural, completely sourced and baked in the USA bone for toy dogs – the Lamb Shank. It’s for tiny toy dogs and only tiny toy dogs.
Are you having trouble finding Jones where you live? Jones has a retail locator on their website. If you’re still not finding a store near you, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll do my best to find a store near you. If that doesn’t work, check your local feed store – Atwoods, Tractor Supply, etc. Or, head to Natural Dog Treat Shop and order online. They’re shipped directly to you. Your dog will thank you. Because Jones knows how to make dogs smile, naturally.
