Here is a picture my wife took ten years ago when she was in China. A vendor had it for sale in a street market in Shanghai, the old market. Not a place where tourists should have been, she says. The big noses didn't blend in.
But neither does this puppy. Wife swears it was not painted or dyed, but that the little guy's coloring was natural. She seems trustworthy.
Any guesses? I don't know anything about it.
