My dog knocked over my plant to bark at an owl ... (which I suppose is better than barking at a smell, like he usually does)

First, can anyone ID this plant? Second, can the broken pieces be propagated? I have seen succulent leaves be propagated by laying them on soil and wasn't sure if this was a possibility for this specific type of succulent.

Thank you!

It looks like the plant I have, that is some type of Crassula Ovata. Mine roots easily either laid on top of the soil or just barely covering the tip planted straight down into the soil.

This is a cutting, its rooting and at the spot where I removed a damaged leaf, there's new growth. I still am not convinced this plant is a jade plant, it's in the same family,but grows differently, grows faster and leaves feel softer..

Update: this plant is Crassula Platyphylla minima

It looks like a young Crassula arborescens. Sure, you can still try to root those leaves. Just lay it down in dry media, keep it warm, no direct sun. Be patient.
