Absolutely! as long as it is specifically for a dog and there is nothing attached to it that she can tear off and chew and swallow.

Sure, like the other person said, as long as it's for dogs. A rope, a tough toy whatever it takes, as long as he's not chewing on your furniture, etc. lol Good Luck!

Make sure to only get toys made for tough chewers. Those Cattle dog jaws are unbelievable. When she gets a little older, give her an empty water bottle. Sasha used to run through the house making hers click loudly.

In hybrid dog terminology, you have a Texas Heeler. Look it up on

In some people's eyes, you have a mutt, but a cool looking, smart and lovable mutt.

Take a picture and open an account. I need to see if she looks like Sasha (her pic is on Lily's page.)

Hello, these Heeler mixes (Texas Heelers)are AWESOME chewers but should not get into trouble if you offer them objects they are allowed to chew. My personal favorites are the Dingo line of chew bones. They are safe to eat and keep them busy for a little while, if a little on the expensive side. We've tried everything there is and Dingoes are all Gracie wants anymore. She also enjoys shredding paper towels and cardboard. Please feel free to ask me anything you like in the future; drop by and see Gracie's page.
