See some Before & After Photos of recent Custom Stuffed Shelter Pups made from photos!

We specialize in quirky, unique, and just plain ol' special dogs. Send us a few favorite photos of your dog (front and side views) and be sure to tell us about any special markings. We can't wait to see them and then immortalize your dog in a custom stuffed plush version.

Before you email us, here are few answers to the most frequently questions:
  1. No, we currently don't do cats but will be offering them in 2014
  2. Custom Shelter Pups currently cost $175 $150 each
  3. The average size of a Shelter Pup is 8 inches long and weight approximately 7 ounces. Some Pups are slightly bigger and some Pups are slightly smaller. They are a cross between a toy & a small pillow and are super cuddly. See a photo of our founder, Theodora with her Shelter Pups
  4. Yes, we ship internationally. We will get you the best shipping quote we can when we get your order.
A handmade felted version of your pup is the perfect gift for a child going off to college (and leaving the family pet behind for the first time). They make beautiful memorial gifts when a beloved pet passes away. Or buy one for yourself just because they are irresistible, just like your dog. We understand completely.

Below are some examples of how we turn photos into a one-of-a-kind custom stuffed dog to treasure.


  • A beautiful russet coat...

  • looking good in felt!

  • We love the things that make your dog look totally unique: coat markings and colors, oddball quirks and expressions, maybe even a 'flaw' or two.


  • Heather Anne, the adorable poodle...

  • captured forever as a puppy!

  • Custom is our specialty, and its something the replicated pedigree dogs sold in the toy stores just cant do. Gotta have one?



  • Sometimes simple things...

  • are the most divine.
