The Little Buddy Heart Beat Sheep is the ideal toy for little pups and a great Christmas gift for the new puppy in your life!

This unique toy by All For Paws has a faint heartbeat, which is nestled inside its stuffing. The intermittent vibrations will calm your puppy and help reduce stress when left alone. Puppies grow up in a litter so they're used to sleeping next to their brothers and sisters. When they leave the litter they won't necessarily have that same sense of security.

That's where the Little Buddy Heart Beat Sheep can help with providing a soft toy to cuddle and a little heartbeat to calm your puppy.
