I bought this for my pittie who likes to play fetch on occasion and she likes it. The grooves in the ball allow her to easily pick it up with her teeth, and much to my suprise she hasn't destroyed it yet! Good ball, would buy again!
Because this ball is soft, it is possible for for our dog to catch it and carry it back to us when we are playing. sometimes it will collapse, but it pops right back when we kick it or throw it. I order one every year for her for Christmas!
