Katy Company U.S. Dogs Wanted
« on: Tuesday 15 July 2014, 09:42 am »
Hello everyone! I'm looking for anyone who may have a jointed plush dog laying around made by the Katy Company. They are called US Dogs and they were made in the early and mid 2000s. I have one currently from the line named Hawk but I would like to acquire more as with time they'll likely become even more scarce than they are already. Here is the description from when I had my one plush ID'd

"U.S. Dogs were made by Katy Company, which has now ceased trading.

Here's an archived version of their website (not all images show or links work), with U.S. Dogs and U.S. Puppies at the top of the left-hand navigation.

"A child's best friend! Unlike most stuffed toys, U.S. Dogs are not idle toys.  Your toy U.S. Dog can be posed in hundreds of playful positions. Its mouth is designed to hold interchangeable toys, puppies and treats as you act out the joy of having a dog."

U.S. Dogs included:
Chase the Collie
Duke the German Shepherd
Dylan the Golden Retriever
Hawk the Black Labrador Retriever
Jewels the Standard Poodle
Katy the Yellow Labrador Retriever
Rudy the Rottweiler
Rufus the Mixed Breed
Sammy the Samoyed

U.S. Puppies included:
Black Lab pups
Black Poodle pups
Collie Puppies
German Shepherd Puppies
Golden Retriever pups
Rottweiler Puppies
Samoyed pups
Yellow Lab pups

Here's a page with Hawk on (and the links on the left mostly work):

I'm looking for any dogs or accessories in any condition but I am mainly interested in the dogs themselves and the kit accessories(the puppies are less important). Thanks in advance!

Hi, I have no idea if you will ever see this post, but I wanted to respond. I do know these plush dogs. You've already found the most comprehensive source of info about them as far as I can tell, being the archived version of their website. I have Sammy and Katy and I'm not looking to sell, but I came here to tell you that I sourced both of mine from eBay. They are very hard to search for as I'm sure you've noticed! That said, they do pop up on eBay from time to time. I randomly thought about them today and started searching around, which is how I found this post. But I also found a couple of live auctions and I thought I would pass them onto you in case you would see this and are still trying to acquire some of these dogs! I'm sending you a PM with the links.
