Give the Dog a Clone

10 Mar 2008 | by Shalesh Singh | Posted in: Wag News

A Seoul-based company says it has received the world’s first commercial order to clone a pet dog, from a California woman who wants to recreate Booger, her dead pit bull terrier. The cloning will be conducted by tem cell scientists at Seoul National University, where the first cloned dog, an Afghan hound named Snuppy, was created in 2005, while the company, RNL Bio, looks after the business side. The company said in a statement that is was charging $150,000 to clone Booger, using some ear tissue that the owner had refrigerated. “It seems that she had a disability and her dog helped her cope with the problem, so she was eager to get a clone of Booger,” the company’s chief executive, Ra Jeong-chan, was quoted as telling The Korea Times. “There are many people who want to clone their pet dogs in Western countries, even at this high price.” He said he expected up to 500 orders within a few years, adding that then “the cost for cloning a dog may come down to less than $50,000.”
