|In my experience for a dog of medium size,the truly edible bones (as in nothing or only shards left) are chicken bones, lamb ribs and necks and the ribs of young cattle and pigs.
I have 'fed' pork shoulder bones as well as femur, pelvis and spines of various animals without any problems, JT just eats off the meat, chews thd bone a bit and abandons it when he realizes it isn't all that edible. Jake might have a good go at the shoulder but I don't think he could eat the whole thing given, I guess just supervise and take it away when you think enough is enough.
Kraka, my mum's dog, on the other hand, has an enormous mouth and I have watched him crack through bones thicker than my wrist, no joke! So I think jaw strength plays a big role in what's edible and what's not.
