My dog is an aggressive chewer or she has OCD - the jury is still out. Even the "aggressive" chewer toys are ripped to shreds within minutes to hours because of her chewing styles. Help me with toys please!

So my pup (obligtory pic)
is an aggressive chewer who fixates on the smallest loose string on the toy until she has the thing unraveled and pulling out shreds of stuffing. I've tried kong balls (the solid black ones) but she loses interest within minutes, regular bones are fine and usually are our go to toys, we have a varsity ball (by far her favorite toy)
, but in-the-house toys are usually destroyed within minutes. She loves toys that she can play with herself so currently we're stuck buying a TON of cloth toys since I like my walls. We've tried tug of war, but after about 30 minutes one of us tires of it so that is a short term solution. If it matters, I think she is a pit/retriever mix (shelter pup). Yes, we take her for walks and she has a yard but it's winter in Minnesota with -12 temps recently so I can't exercise her as much now.
Help me save my bank account please, what toys can I buy for her that last more then a few minutes?
