{squeaky, a very special puppy}

This little guy came to me very well loved, but looking pretty beat up.
He was Melanie's husband's puppy when he was young and then they passed him on to their son when he was young. He's been loved for many years and Melanie wanted to have him restored so she could surprise her son for his 22nd birthday with a new & improved Squeaky that he can pass on to his own children. 
Melanie wanted the original dog to still be in tact and just wanted him recovered so I basically made a slip cover for him. The original body is still inside. I added more stuffing to replace what he had lost over time and he still has the original eyes.
I'm very happy with how Squeaky turned out & so was Melanie. This was her review she left for me on Etsy...
"Rachelle You could not have done a better job. Truly outstanding. You made him loose and wrinkly. He still looks like the old Squeaky. Exactly what I was hoping for. Thanks so very much. Hopefully this 2nd generation pup will be in our family for years to come. Thank you very very much. Worth every penny. Many thanks. My son is upset that his dad's chocolate stain is no longer there. I told him you kept old bod but covered all that history. Is that correct still? He looks great otherwise. Thanks." 
You can order a custom made stuffed animal or contact me if you're interested in having one restored like this one.
