1985 Tonka Rumple Skins Pound Puppies
« on: Sunday 15 July 2012, 07:50 pm »
I have a pound puppy that I have been unable to find information about online.  I also have been unable to find any images of the same pound puppy. The puppy is red with ears pinned back. Any help finding more information would be nice.  I am posting a picture of the dog and the tag. Thanks!

Here is the tag:  https://www.box.com/embed/l2a54hk3vhuo8r7.swf
Here is the dog: https://www.box.com/embed/0x7byafd21a6n7l.swf

I'm thinking that it may be sun damaged? Like, maybe he started out as the dark brown color and changed to this over the years.

I think that dog probably started out as what I call "raisin dogs" which I have for sale on my etsy store below.

I've never seen one that started out red...

I have many Rumple Skins Pound Puppies. Yours looks like it was the red/brown version that turned more red with age. It seems like a dye run problem.

I have that SAME one!  I have been searching for info on it too, but can't find anything.  If I do find anything then I will let you know.  If you find anything let me know too.  I am assuming they are the original pound puppy made from Rumple skins in 1985?  Or is Tonka and Rumple Skins the same company?

Rumpleskins isn't a brand, it's a type. Tonka is the brand/company. :-)
