West Paw salamander

WestPaw Salamander toy (5 biscuits)

Our take: WestPaw has several animal shapes besides this hilarious salamander in their line of eco-friendly plush toys, including a frog, turtle, fish, and the ubiquitous dog bone. I like the good grabbing parts on the salamander.

With a covering made from 85 percent recycled plastic bottles and recycled polyfill batting stuffing, it’s got good eco-credentials. It also contains the squeaker that makes my dog’s heart sing. The salamander comes in four colors (oatmeal, sage, willow, and burnt orange), is machine washable, and made in the U.S.A.
