This is Gunther IV, the world’s richest Alsatian and the world’s richest dog!
Gunther, who inherited his money from his father (go figure), is worth a hefty $373 million, or thereabouts.
Gunther’s father, Gunther III lived with a German countess, Karlotta Liebenstein, who was a true animal lover. When the countess died, the money was left to her dog. Now Gunther IV has inherited it all, and thanks to some wise investments by his people, the fortune left to his father has tripled.
This is one dog who lives very high on the hog, indeed. Gunther has purchased a villa in Miami from Madonna, and also won a white truffle (very rare) in a raffle.
But apart from these sorts of splurges (because who knows how much that raffle ticket cost…), Gunther is making the most of his money as his trust fund grows each year.
Oh, Gunther, you can be our friend any time.
