He is in his original (made in 1990) NEW condition, yes he is almost 30 years of age.
He has tan felt pads with embroidered detail on his paws. His elongated nose has the same embroidered detail. Some of his red mohair is thin in spots but that was done intentionally when he was made to make him look old and worn.
