Couple Spends $100,000 To Have Their Dead Dog Cloned
A British couple spent $100,00 to have their dead dog cloned.
A British couple saw their beloved dog reborn when a boxer puppy created using DNA from their deceased pup was born.
Laura Jacques, 29, and Richard Remde, 43, spent $100,000 to clone their dog, Dylan, two weeks after he had passed away.
The couple were crestfallen after Dylan died in June of a brain tumor and enlisted the services of Sooam Biotech Research Foundation in South Korea.
The clinic used DNA samples from Dylan and placed it in a surrogate, who gave birth to the new puppy, Chance, the day after Christmas. It was the first time in history that a dog was cloned from DNA of a dead pooch. The surrogate also gave birth to another dog named Shadow, naturally.
Chance was named after Jacques' favorite film, Homeward Bound.
Jacques told The Guardian: "The whole thing just feels surreal. I lost all sense of time. I have no idea how long everything took, the whole thing made me feel very disoriented. I was just clinging on to Richard for about an hour-and-a-half after Chance was born.”
She added: “I had had Dylan since he was a puppy. I mothered him so much; he was my baby, my child, my entire world.”
