I went and bought an assortment of things and figured I'd share in case anyone else was having a similar problem.
The goDog was great, we got him a little pig and he LOVES it. It has stood up very well to his chewing and seems to be in pretty good shape thus far. While I like the goDog, I actually am even more pleased with the petco brand stuffed toys that are made out of the same material. I'd actually gotten him one a few months ago (a cute little tube called a barkwurst) on a whim since they're right by the register and it lasted ages, it just got SUPER dirty and washing didn't really help. Since then we've also tried the carrot (not so great because the felt stem at the top is not durable at all, is filled with stuffing, and is not sewn on separately, so if you get that off the whole toy comes apart), the Gouda dog (also not as good, but I'm not shocked because it's made out of a different material), and the broccoli (which is just as good as the barkwurst). I wasn't so sure about the broccoli, because it has these tiny little arms that look like prime candidates for being chewed off in a matter of minutes, but it's about 2-3 weeks old at this point and still in perfect condition, even though we play fetch and tug with it every day.
We got him another Kong, which he loves to be filled with peanut butter or softened kibble, or really just about anything. However I do NOT recommend a Kong Genius. The rubber is soft and he'd ripped a chunk out of the top in literally less than three minutes of having it, which was a shame, because he really seemed to be intrigued by getting the treat out.
We also got him a squirrel with a long fluffy tail that he loved in the store and while the squirrel is significantly less furry that he was initially (it's taken rather a bit of supervision to make sure he doesn't eat too much fuzz) most of his parts, other than his ears and his squeaker, are still in tact so overall not a complete waste of money.
All in all, I've definitely found some options. Thank you all for your recommendations!!
