Origami dogs and their family

This is a starting collection of photo's of Origami folds of miscellaneous dogs, foxes, and similar animals. I fold these models, using directions from different books, make a photo of them with the camera of my SGI workstation, and put them on the web site. Apologies for poor quality of pictures, and in some cases, the folds have small errors (which are usually not visible due to the poor quality of the photo.) Folds are classified with respect to the book they are taken from.

One of my favorite models. It is even nicer when folded with thinner foil paper. With simple means, the fox gets an expressive look in its eyes: small animals, beware!

This dog is called `tekkel' in Dutch.


Details can be so important, and when not precisely right, the model just misses the point. So, this should look a boxer, but the head just misses something. My fault; in Montroll's book there is a photo of a very lifelike boxer.

Scottish Terrier.
