This area rug has been down for 2 weeks. We were updating our decor so the new rug was going to be great. In the two weeks my dog has licked the rug in 2 places and it's so cheaply made the fiber (ALL OF IT) in the spots were gone down to the rug backing!! Really? A dog licking a rug for 5 min. or less? After paying $ for a rug and this happens? The rug is ruined and will have to be thrown in the trash, I feel like I should have flushed the money down the toilet, after saving up to purchase a beautiful rug and this is what you get I feel like puking. If you have animals PLEASE avoid any possible heartache and don't buy this cheap thing.
