Mansion Belonging To World’s Richest Dog Goes On The Market For $32 Million

Mansion Belonging To World’s Richest Dog Goes On The Market For $32 Million

Gunther VI inherited the massive home from his granddad, Gunther IV

The world's wealthiest dog has just put his $32 million (£23.7m) mansion on the market.

Yep, Gunther VI is a rich little pooch after inheriting the monstrous $500 million fortune from his grandad, Gunther IV.

And the German shepherd is now looking to offload some of his valuable assets, with his Miami estate, which used to belong to Madonna, up for sale.

According to reports, the bizarre story goes back to the German countess Karlotta Liebenstein, who died in 1992 and left her multimillion-dollar trust, reportedly worth $58 million (£43m), to her dog Gunther III.

Since then, it has been managed by a group of handlers, who have helped maintain and grow the varied portfolio.

The 51,000sqft Tuscan-style villa was picked up by the group for $7.5 million (£5.56m), who bought it off the 'Material Girl' singer back in 2000.

The sprawling mansion, which was built in 1928, boasts nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms and an outdoor swimming pool, as well as exclusive views over Biscayne Bay.

It is located in one of the most prestigious gated communities in the US, and is one of just six properties on the row.

The home is currently listed with Ruthie and Ethan Assouline of The Assouline Team at Compass.

Speaking to Forbes, Ruthie said she couldn't believe it when she was told that the owner was a dog.

She told the publication: "We have sold countless multi-million dollar homes, but this is definitely a first.

"When the handlers initially told me a dog owned the property, I didn't believe it. The property has a history that no one else can claim.

"The ultra-private gated estate sits on an expansive lot lined with royal palm trees, lush landscaping and showcases breathtaking open bay views."

As well as the swanky pad, Gunther VI enjoys quite an extravagant lifestyle, travelling on private jets and yachts.

According to reports, he even purchased a $1.1m (£816,000) white truffle at an auction.

But despite the bizarre situation, Ruthie said she was won over as soon as she met Gunther.

She added: "During our first meeting with Gunther, he ran up and gave me a huge slobbery kiss and licked off my lipstick.

"I think that's what really sealed the deal."
