A DOG owner paid £200 for a replica of her Shih Tzu — but acquired back a “horrible teddy”.
Rebecca McCann, 47, wanted a hand-made memento as Larry’s days are numbered.
But she was horrified with what received right here back 12 weeks later. The retailer worker talked about: “I went, ‘Oh my God’. It regarded like one factor you win at a fairground.
“I was so disappointed. It doesn’t look anything like Larry, it could be any random dog. It doesn’t really look like a Shih Tzu.”
Rebecca ordered it from US company Petsies after her giant sister Carole, 49, died of pneumonia in June and left her some money.
Rebecca, from Birmingham, talked about of her 13-year-old canine: “Carole beloved Larry and I’m obsessive about my canine too.
“Larry is getting older and I wanted to have one factor I’d maintain to remind me of him prolonged after he’s gone.
“Instead, I’ve got a horrible teddy bear which looks like it’s been made in the dark. Larry hates it too.”
After she demanded a refund, she talked about Petsies equipped “to do me another if I pay another £50 and I can watch them make it”.
But she added: “I refused and am still asking for a refund.”
A Petsies spokeswoman talked about: “Unfortunately, on this case, our designers solely acquired two pictures and a extremely fast description to recreate Larry.”
It equipped a free different if she paid £36 supply but had not heard back, she added.
