The stuffed dog shown on the show was apparently badly taxidermied which is why it looks like an alien pet. They looked a lot more like a normal small dog in woodcuts.

What I didn't quite twig while watching the show is how much like a hamster wheel the setup was (I was picturing them walking around in a circle like a horse mill). There's a photo of a surviving wheel (with model dog inside) here: http://virtualmuseumofbath.com/2013/06/20/doors-re-open-at-no-1/
