Gunther VI, the richest dog in the world

The richest dog in the world is a German Shepherd known as Gunther VI. However, as his name suggests, Gunther VI did not make his fortune through social media influence. In 1992, he inherited $80 million from his grandfather, Gunther III, a fortune he also inherited from his late owner, the German countess Karlotta Liebenstein.

Gunther VI's owner and manager, the Gunther Corporation, rocketed the dog's inherited fortune from $80 million to the $500 million reported today through clever real estate investments. Unsurprisingly, lucky Gunther VI emerge as the richest dog in the world today.
