Sergeant Stubby was the most decorated dog in
military history and the only dog to have been promoted
during battle. He fought for 18 months in the trenches
for France during World War I for 17 battles. Stubby
warned his fellow soldiers of gas attacks, located
wounded soldiers in No Man's Land, and listened for
incoming artillery rounds. He was also responsible for
the capture of a German spy at Argonne. After his time
in the war, Stubby met US Presidents Woodrow Wilson,
Calvin Coolidge, and Warren G. Harding. He was awarded
life memberships to the American Legion, the Red Cross,
and the YMCA. Sergeant Stubby died on March 16, 1926.

Bocchetta Plush Toys is a
family operated business, proud of a heritage that began in a small toy
shop in the town of Arona, Italy. Today you will find us throughout much
of Europe, Australia, and we are fast finding new friends in the
Americas. A great portion of our success is due to the far reaching
imagination and meticulous craftsmanship of our founder, Giovanni
1948, Giovanni Bocchetta turned his creative passions to toy-making.
Armed with the skills of the traditional Italian craftsman, Giovanni
tested the limits of his imagination as he set out to make the softest,
most lifelike toys a child will ever know.
Year by year he expanded
the business, carefully staying true to the concepts of realistic design
and quality craftsmanship.
In 1992, the family moved
their main office to Australia's Gold Coast. Today Bocchetta Plush Toys
remains an example of imagination and skill passed from father to son.
Bocchetta Plush Toys are
manufactured in one of the three carefully selected and controlled
Bocchetta toy factories, using the technology and know-how that we
successfully have developed over the last 62 years.
