The world’s richest dog named Gunther VI is close to becoming even wealthier. Gunther is a lucky German Shepherd who is used to living royally. The dog owns a nine bedroom, eight and a half bath Miama estate which was once resided in by Madonna.
Gunther received the waterfront home by his inheritance and he is willing to sell it for a whopping $31.75 million. The news was confirmed by PEOPLE.
A late German Countess Karlotta Leibenstein, who died in 1992, ended up willing her mouth watering fortune of $80 million to her beloved companion – her dog – Gunter III, who was the grandfather of Gunter VI.
The German countess did not have any children or close relatives as per multiple reports. People who bear the responsibility of managing the dog’s estate have managed to amass a fortune of around $500 million and the number is expected to grow in the future.
They have invested the dog’s money wisely in mansions as well as villas all over the world. This time they have gone with real estate agent Ruthie Assouline, a member of the Assouline Team at Compass, to sell the mansion in Miami.
The agent found it hard it to believe when he was first informed of a dog owning the property. Ruthie Assouline and co-lister Ethan Assouline had to undergo a sniff test before receiving approval from the property owner.
The lavish property has been set on a 51,000 squre foot lot with 100 feet of water frontage. To tap that off It features extensive landscaping, open water, city views, a pool, fountain and a dock.
Gunter usually resides at his home in Italy but visited the place in Miami often. He loved to spend time in Madonna’s former bedroom.
Gunter’s grandfather Gunter IV had purchased the property from Madonna around 20 years ago.
When a dog inherits money or any other assets it is usually put into a trust with a human trustee who makes the decisions about spending the money.
