Dog plushie characteristics

Every dog breed has its own features; the same goes for plushie dog types. Two common features found in most dog plushies however are long, floppy ears and a round black nose. Otherwise, each race has its own characteristic features.

The common dog plushies are the simple, floppy-eared brown dogs, which resemble fluffy dog breeds, such as the Cockapoo, Australian Cobberdogs, or the Toy Poodle. Other popular stuffed animal dogs are modeled after the Bulldogs, Corgis, Huskies, or Dachshunds. From large tail to short stubs and from long snouts to pug-like faces; each of these plushies has their own distinctive characteristics. Additionally, dog plushies are closely related to their ‘ancestors’, the wolf plushies.

Famous Dogs (available as stuffed animals)

Some dog plushies are modeled after famous dogs. A great source of inspiration is the world of film, which has introduced us to many memorable dogs, such as Beethoven, the massive St. Bernard dog owned by the Newton family in the Beethoven-film series (1992), or the titular yellow Labrador retriever from Marley & Me (2008). We’ve seen dogs fall in love in Walt Disney’s Lady and The Tramp (1955) and One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961), we’ve seen them go on adventures with their owners, like Toto in The Wizard of Oz (1939) and Hooch in Turner & Hooch (1989) and we’ve seen dogs star as the main character of films such as Cats & Dogs (2001), Beverly Hills Chihuahua (2008) and The Queen's Corgi (2019).

Finally, there are many famous dogs out there which moved us with their loyalty, and made us shed a tear for them: there’s the heroic collie Lassie who starred in many films and tv-series, the cheeky stray dog Old Yeller (1957), the English Setter Bim, whose tragic story was told in White Bim Black Ear (1977) and the loyal-until-death Japanese Akita Inu Hachiko from Hachiko Monogatari (1987). When in Shibuya, Tokyo, you’ll find that there are more Akita Inu plushies than there are Pokémon plushies.

Many popular stuffed animal dogs were based on these filmic canines, allowing us to continue seeing them long after the credits roll.
