Default I need new bully sticks HELP!

I have been buying Sir Lovkins True Chews 6 pack bully sticks for a good while now and HE LOVES THEM. The only problem now is that he is demolishing them very quickly he could go through one stick in a day. Is there better, bigger, stronger bully sticks out there? Please hurry Lovkins has almost finished his stick as Im sitting here typing. I guess I should mention they are all natural no adders or fillers and no raw hide. I tried to buy him a cheap meaty knee bone and its just sitting on the ground. He wanted nothing to do with it.

I bought some from Bullysticks.com, click on the made in USA link. I don't know if they last longer, cause Sammie is not into them like SL, the man eater.

I got the 6 inch size. they are pretty big for a 5 lb Maltese. Maybe others eat them quicker.

Zooey takes forever to go through a 6" bully, but since Lovkins is an aggressive chewer, I would try going up to the 12".

I see these are made by Tyson. I don't much about it, but others might. I thought Tyson not a preferred brand. A lot say made in USA, but they actually come from another country and tyson packages them in USA. They ones I got have a disclaimer saying the source was not from Brazil, etc. Just some info.

He is an aggresive chewer. I am just blessed he never tried to chew on plugs or furniture only the chew sticks and my hand ofcourse.

The Merrill site says "made in the USA" when in fact they now come from India (water buffalo). I wrote the company & they told me. The web-site does not reflect this recent change (Jan., I think). It might be a good idea to contact the company & ask if they "originate in the US-- all parts thereof" or or simply packaged in the US.
Also I note that these are "not less than 80% protein" so I would be very careful giving a maltese a whole stick to consume. I tend to go lower protein on all accounts.
