I've heard of this problem before! With the darker clothes like the maroon/blue hoody coming off on the lighter colored webkinz like the hippos and white pets. I don't buy the clothes so I don't have this problem, but the only suggestions I can offer are:

1. hand surface-washing the webkinz with something like woolite,
2. wash the clothes a few times before letting the webkinz wear them. (check the fabric content to see if they'd shrink) but this way, if it's a "bleeding" fabric, a couple washes will help wash the extra dye out.

anycase, I'm sorry that happened to the pugs! At least, now you know to be careful when letting your kinz wear clothes!

I'm surprised they would sell outfits that would dye the webkinz that wear them! Washing them a couple times is the only way I can think of to get most of that excess dye out. I remember once I dropped my scrunchie into a bowl of water and it immediately bled all this color into the water and the water became like a solid dark purple. It took a LOT of washing to get the majority of it out, but even then I still think it bleeds a little...

It's really unfortunate that they're using such cheap dyes in the clothes! Now I'm concerned that perhaps I should take off all the clothes from my webkinz, since I have them on some of my favorite ones (including my unicorns and sherbet bunny.) I've had similar problems occur with plastic transferring dyes from one plastic item to another, but not with fabric and stuffed animals. If your pet originally had all-white fur, I might recommend a dye-remover, but I don't think that is the case with the pug.

Edit: I wonder if Ganz knows about this issue.

I have e-mailed Ganz... I do now have a 1-866 number... I just won't trust the dark clothes on any of the pets.. we have quite a few outfits for my little ones webkinz.. I'm scared to wash them cause the quality is not good... the seams of pants and skirts are fraying.. the Santa suit she just got is losing all it's fur.. But she loves the clothes.. as we speak i am washing the pug with the "webkinz recommended baby shampoo"
coco is still covered!! so now i'm going to try oxy clean.. wish me luck!!!

-- RE: WEBKINZ0415 I bought my daughter non webkinz stuff for chritsmas but she has desided that all she wants is webkinz!! so it looks like some non webbie stuff will be going back..

A little bit of color-safe bleach might help if the dye hasn't set in thoroughly to the surface, but I'm not sure if it would worth otherwise.
