Merryweather dog 1

This poor chap was my late father’s toy, and my father was born in 1930, so I would estimate the dog to be 1920-1935. The dog is missing an eye, and his fur has seen better days.
He is rigid and does not have movable parts, he feels stuffed with a firm substance - wool maybe.
His Merryweather label is still firmly attached to his belly.

I’d love an idea on an accurate date, how many were made and if he is valuable (financially, as sentimentally she certain is!).

He has been well looked after over the last few decades, mainly in a suitcase. I have attached various photographs so you can see the details and the condition, including the missing eye.

Does anyone recommend a specialist repairer? I am in England, but I guess he could be posted overseas.
