Loving dog owner is shocked to receive a mini felt replica from her beloved Staffordshire bull terrier Missy who looks like she had a stroke
- A loving dog owner was left giggling when a replica of her pet arrived
- Housewife Emma Allen has purchased a mini version of her Staffordshire Bull Terrier
- She was hysterical when it arrived because it looked like it had been a stroke
- They have to keep it out of reach now, because four-year-old Missy looks suspiciously
A loving dog owner kept giggling after ordering a mini felt replica from her beloved dog – only to make it arrive ‘like it was having a stroke.’
Housewife Emma Allen saw an artist’s online ad to create pet models based on their photos and was desperate for a sloppy Doppelganger from Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Missy.
While her partner Shirley Mcclean didn’t watch, Emma, 40, excitedly placed her order online – she even chose to add a black collar to the four-year-old dog’s model.

When the package arrived two weeks later, Emma burst out laughing when she opened it and discovered the mini model with his eyes rolling up and in opposite directions.
But housewife Shirley, 45, didn’t see the funny side of the pricey mistake and urged her to return it and get a refund – but Emma claims she didn’t have the heart to complain to the maker.
Now the couple are forced to keep the less-than-flattering figure out of their reach in their living room, while four-year-old Missy looks at it suspiciously and tries to attack it.
Emma, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, said, “Looks like it had a stroke. It was hilarious.
“That’s what it looked like when it appeared on the post, I burst out laughing.
“I then received a message from the woman asking if it was okay. I thought, “I can’t be mean or terrible,” so I just said “yes, thank you.”
“I couldn’t get myself to tell her the truth, I felt sorry for her, I couldn’t ask for a refund.
“My partner went crazy, but I couldn’t stop laughing. She kept saying “send it back, send it back” but I paid the money and because it’s so funny I’d rather keep it.
“I had to keep Missy off because she doesn’t like it, I put it high on the shelf because she keeps attacking it.
“She knows it must be her, she has to think,” Gosh, I had a bad hair day. “
The furry lookalike is now a major talking point when Emma and Shirley have friends and family – with anyone smiling at mini Missy’s unhappy look.
Emma said, “I saw them advertised online. It was just a Devon woman doing them from home.

“She said she could do me one for £ 30 or it was an extra £ 5 if you wanted a collar too.
“It’s a great conversation starter. Everyone saw the funny side of it and it was so brilliant, I said “I love it”.
“When people come by now it’s always a topic of conversation, all children want to play with it and everyone laughs when they see it.
“I was going to get one from Bailey [their other dog] also, but when this came I didn’t want to spend £ 35 more. ‘
