Unlike the Joe Bitin', the Dognald was created to grunt instead of squeak when chewed.

"And, you'll never hear this plush guy squeak. Squeaking is for wimps. When chewed, The Dognald grunts. Like a winner," the description continues.

Both plush presidential toys sell for $10 and can be found on the BARK website.
