How much is that doggie in the window

Can you please help me find a specific stuffed doggie??

We saw this toy plush dog at the playground. Maybe 18 inches long, not floppy. Its owner was a Russian grandpa who could not tell us where they had gotten it from. Have seen the Melissa & Doug stuffed dogs but we like that this one is laying vs standing. A certain someone in my household would be very appreciative of any leads. Thank you.

This brand has a similar look to them, though I don't see that exact breed. (My kid has a stuffed tiger from them in that same type of pose, which was my starting point.) Might be close enough!

Couldn't find the exact one, but have you seen these plush beagles from Viahart and Jesonn? They have the same pose, of roughly similar size.

Another in the column of couldn't quite find or identify, but I know Stuffed Safari prides itself on its more realistic plush animals. They produce a variety of dogs by breed and feature relaxed pose options in a lot of the dogs. I thought it was worth a look. There were one or two that I thought might be appealing.

Oh, and in searching for life-like or realistic plush dogs I came across a company called cuddle clones that for $200 (!) will produce a more-or-less exact replica of a pet, and wondered if that might be of value considering your prior question.

Maybe a lead? Lying down position.

How long has grandpa had it in his possession? It could be an older or discontinued model...

Teddy Hermann is one possibility; Hansa is another.

And now I want all the stuffed doggies (and sloths, and turtles, and giraffes...)
