Source .blend file included as well for further exploration (includes non-subsurfaced and non-booleaned original mesh and each derivative step).

I'm sorry, but I don't think this will print well. Because the thing is only held up by four legs and the "belly" is largely unsupported, it will start drooping. You should remove the big unsupported overhangs like the ears, also.
