He has adorable little drooped over stand-up ears, brown glass eyes and a stubby little tail...a fox terrier, by the looks of him. He has a couple of spots on him, that are supposed to be spots on the dog for coloration, not stains. He has a little black hand embroidered nose & string mouth, and a little brown leather collar.

The research I did showed that Maruei Toys hasn't been in business for a good many years. He is in remarkably good shape for such an old dog...the mohair, outside of being a little dusty with age has very little wear.
