Hey I had a similar problem with my boy he's an 80lb Mutt and a power chewer. We found these toys by outward hound that are made from fire hose material and the are sturdy AF. He has 2 of them and the older of the two is several years old and still kicking.
Here's a link to them on Amazon if your interested:
We bought some hard ones since my pup is an aggressive chewer. If you aren’t into the nylabone similar chews we got a few of these toys and she LOVES them and for some reason no matter how much wear and tear it smells like coconuts.

EVERY dog loves the lamb chop toy. I discovered then at a doggy daycare I worked at and even dogs who usually never play somehow love this toy! I bought some for our house, and all four of my pugs are OBSESSED. I don't know what it "triggers" in dogs, but I love this toy and recommend it to everyone haha

I've seen them sold at multiple local pet stores as well so you could check your local ones if you prefer!
Absolutely. I would go with an upholstery or sailcloth thread and use canvas, sailcloth, burlap, or tarp fabric
If you want something significantly easier:
Got you fellow golden-bro.

Interesting. I know a dog similar he only wants toys he can rip to pieces other than that he won’t even try. Maybe she just don’t like toys that she can’t destroy? Bark box has some plush toys without stuffing but with a ball inside maybe that’ll work? Some of the listed ones are plush but some of the others are balls.
Luna destroys most stuffed animals, except HER stuffed animal. We went through a ton before finding one she wouldn't destroy quickly, but she loves them so we kept trying.
Her current baby has lasted a year or so. It's a lamb chop.
She's also pretty good about Ikea pandas.
Our dood does the same. Just need to pick out toys with a ripstop layer below the fabric so that they have to work a bit harder -- either way, any toy will have a limited lifespan.
We've had good luck with this one and this one
I got mine a toy made out of an old firehose. It's still intact after nearly 9 months.
Outward hound is the biggest brand on them, I believe KONG makes some too. They can be found on Amazon if you search "fire hose dog toy" just be careful since some of them are really big and you may need to find a smaller one depending on the size of your dog. Here's a link to one with multiple size options. [link]
Depending on the age of your puppy, try yak cheese it’s good for intense chewers but I would recommend it for older pups. You can try making your own like an empty water bottle in a sock. Actually there are these toys that are really durable and nice. My puppy is a huge chewer and loves the cactus. They have a bunch of options in different sizes. I definitely recommend these toys!
Anything by Barkshop is fantastic. My pups loved this cactus. They also have a monthly subscription box. List.
This toy cactus is super cute!! 🐶 🌵
wishlist Thank you for the contest 😊

Well, you can surely find a store that sells pet supplies in Athens. I would get a small toy for the dog from Greece, if possible. If you’d rather order online, that should be fine too. I don’t think anyone would expect a major present for something like this. Anything cute and cheerful looking will do. For ex: hedgehogs
