why this product

The experience begins as the figure is unwrapped. A roof must be gently lifted off the specially-made doghouse which constitutes the packaging. A black nose appears. Followed by two gentle eyes under long, soft ears. And finally, the body with its short legs and pointed, dark tail. Your very own dog.

His love of dogs prompted a young Hans Bølling to design Oscar in 1953. A timeless depiction of the four-legged creature, man's best friend.

Sixty-five years after the first Oscar figure was produced, the cherished dog is now relaunched as the Architectmade Rufus Beech & Leather Dog Model with the same technical details and clean lines.

More Details

  • The movable body parts enable Rufus to express himself as a real dog.
  • When Rufus is either alert with pointed tail, sits with begging eyes or lies relaxed with his dark ears hanging down on both sides of his snout, onlookers are immediately carried back to their own childhood's almost instinctive longing to get their own dog.
