Can you get away with just doing the dog's head? If yes, that would be much easier to make (also simpler to scale for cupcakes). I would start with a ball of pink fondant, roll it slightly to get the snout, and add ears. For the white dots, I would roll white fondant very thin and cut the dots with a small round pastry tip. Then carefully press the dots into the dog's head and smooth out with your fingers.

Or, if you have an extruder, you could extrude white fondant and cut thin slices off to get your white dots.

What if you did a 2 dimensional version? You can use dog shaped cookie cutters, roll out pink fondant and then dot with royal icing for the white spots.

It is always hard to find the perfect cookie cutter, isn't it?! I was browsing online a while back. This might not help you this time:

But it's something to consider for future projects!
