Basically anything which suits her attitude like Ashaari had said.
I do agree with the tennis balls and perhaps some soft toys or rubber toys. If you are not looking to spend much, just head to the Warehouse, Go Lo or the Reject shop. They have some great toys there.
Chew toys save furniture (sometimes) lol.
Your wee doggy might be happier if you let her sleep in the laundry, it will be warmer and safer for her. With winter coming it will get cold at night.
In My Home Dog Minding
We got an assortment of toys when we got our dog (tennis ball, rope toy, rubber, squeaky, kong etc). Now that we know his favourites and which ones he never touches we know what to get more of in the future.
His absolute fave is our football which he claimed as his own
thanks for the advice i prob will go to buy some toys; though on another point i would like to let her to sleep in the laundry but she makes too much noise whining, wakes everyone up, any suggestions?
Firstly, make the laundry a nice place to be. Put her bed in there, some water, feed her in there, give her bones in there etc. Secondly, during the day at first, put her in there and leave her there, if she stays quiet for 5 mins, go let her out and praise her. If she whines ignore her. If you go in to her while she is whining you'll make it worse because she will learn that by whining you come running.
When she's quiet reward her. If you put her in the laundry and she starts whining you MUST ignore her. If you've been going in to her it will take longer for her to quiet down and settle, but once she gets it she will very quickly realise that everything is ok.

CL has the idea I think, you can get some safe and cheap toys if you look around just be careful which ones you do choose if your dog wrecks fluffy toys, some may have harmful stuffings but not all dogs destroy their toys they are so easy to please they are pretty safe with anything.
There have also been warnings about some of the cheap PVC type toys they are suspected of causing cancer in dogs, many dogs are happy with a dried pigs ear or such, even a large bone from the butcher, and some second hand shops have great stuff for dogs to play with.
You can make some great things without much trouble too, an old bike tube tied to a wall or solid fence or clothes line with a safe chew toy at the end of it will spring about and give a dog great fun maybe that large bone could go on the end, again of course arrange it so your dog does not get to chew the tube it's self.
so i guess its personal preference whether u decide to buy from a discount store or from a pet store? what exactly should we beware of when we buy toys, are toys that are 'made in china' be avoided?
