Squshify My Pet 2015 - Sketches

We've got our winners for the Squshify My Pet 2015 contest so now it is time to show you what they won!

Maybe your pet is a wonderful mix of breeds or has different markings from what we offer on our standard design. Or maybe your pet is a breed we don't currently offer in the shop.
