This is Gunther VI, a German Shepard and currently the world wealthiest dog with a networth of over $500 million.
This is how Gunther VI became the world wealthiest dog
Countess Karlotta Liebenstein of Germany, was a rich woman in her life time.
She had no kids but cherished her animals, and because of this, she left her multimillion fortune to her dog, Gunther III (the great grand father of Gunther VI) when she died in 1992.
Gunther III who inherited the wealth has died but his great grand child Gunther VI is the heir who is enjoying the wealth left behind by his patriarch, the great Gunther 111.
The late German woman who willed her wealth to her dog left only $80 million.
However, the family office who manage the dog’s estate have grown the fortune to about $500 million from the 80 million dollars left behind and have invested Gunther’s money in mansions and villas around the world.
Gunther’s wealth is handled by The Gunther Corporation, a family office which was created by the German woman before she died and designed to ensure that the dog is well cared for.
The German Shepherd inherited his wealth fortune, from his grandfather, Gunther IV, the second dog in the lineage.
The Gunther Group’s handlers manages Gunther VI’s day-to-day care, oversees his health and wellbeing, and makes decisions on how to invest his trust.
Gunther VI the dog has many properties around the world, including an estate in Miami which is for sale and a home in Tuscany, where he primarily lives, as well as Florence and Milan.

Gunther VI lives quite the luxurious lifestyle.
Alongside the humans who take care of him, he travels by private jet that belongs to the dog, eats steak and caviar, owns many yachts and cars, and purchased a $1.1 million white truffle at an auction.
His estate also founded Gunther Rescue, a benefit society to help animals in need.
