Supremely Empathetic, Much Mended Hand-sewn Velvet Dog

Regular price $45.00

No possible way I could not rescue this guy from the Maine antiques shop I found him in--definitely in need of immediate adoption! Clearly someone once loved him a lot, mending him again and again with several different colored threads, I have to think for a child who dragged him around everywhere and had separation anxiety when not in hand, as clearly he was sewn up with whatever thread was near at hand! The jowls, flopping down at either side of his mouth, are what especially make him for me.

8" t (ears up; they don't really go down!) x 3 1/4" w. Much mended as evident, which are part of what make him great I think; holding together pretty well now and not fragile.
