HR Designers Workshop Fireside & Champion Dogs

Hagen Renaker made many different dogs. This page features Hagen Renakers Fireside Dogs and their Champion line of dogs. The third groups of dogs were called Pedigree Dogs. All 3 of these dog lines eventually became part of the Designers Workshop line. The Fireside dogs were the largest dogs HR produced. Three of these Fireside dogs are fairly rare. The Boxer and Boxer pup are fairly easy to find. The entire DW line was retired in 1986. However, Hagen Renaker has recently modified and reissued some of these DW dogs as their new Pedigree line. This new Pedigree line is currently available. I have more pages of dogs pictured. The DW dogs are separated into the three categories and are listed alphabetically whenever possible. There are links for Specialty and mini dogs also.
