I ordered this rug for our newly installed patio in our backyard. Well, at the same time we got a new puppy along with our first dog, both labs, and we only allow them access to the laundry room, back hall and part of the family room rug. We put this rug down to control the dog hair and allow the two dogs to have room to lay in the family room, and so they could be near us. It looks sooo beautiful! We have a brown leather sectional next to the rug, and our carpet is tan colored, what a perfect color combination. It holds up so well with two dogs!
