Said "Right now I'm free and cleaning up the studio. I can carve your Dalmatian prototype in 4 Lb. urethane foam in two days. Need a little more information, but it would be less than $1,000 - including shipping and would weigh about 5 Lbs.

$4,000 is a fair price for a 5' figure modeled in clay over a flexible armature or carved in 10 Lb. foam. That's the easy part of the job.
A silicon mold with plaster jacket would be around 5 to 6 thousand $ more.
Your job description and eventual use plan suggest that separate molds of the head, arms, legs and torso would make casting and assembly of the final product an easier and more controlled process than working with a two piece mold and a monolithic, silicon casting that would require a lot of slicing and dicing.
You need to think lockable ball joints, hinge joints and clevis joints.
How to put the figure together, how to support it and how to pose it need a lot more effort and thought than making an accurate, three dimensional image from digital information.
This job doesn't start with clay or foam, it starts with a good plan.
Please advise,
