A German shepherd nicknamed Gunther VI "sold" a villa in Miami, which previously belonged to the singer Madonna

The dog inherited this property.

The eight-bedroom villa overlooking Biscayne Bay has now sold for $ 31.75 million. Madonna sold her estate for $ 7.5 million.


Günther VI's great-grandfather inherited a multimillion-dollar inheritance from the late German Countess Carlotta Liebenstein in 1992. From the great-grandfather (Günther III) the inheritance passed to Günther IV, and only then to Günther VI. All dogs had their own guardians who decided how to dispose of the property.

is part of a board that manages a trust worth nearly $ 500 million dollars.

The story of dogs that inherited millions has often been questioned. In 2005, the Tampa Bay Times reported that the story of German Countess Carlotta Liebenstein could be part of a "publicity stunt."


The publication noted that the Italian press published an article in 1995, which stated that Countess Carlotta Liebenstein never existed.


Günther VI lives a real royal life. Every morning, the chef prepares a breakfast of the best meat, fresh vegetables and rice. Sometimes the shepherd eats caviar. The dog also likes to travel by private plane and works with his trainer every day. The shepherd sleeps in a luxurious red velvet bed overlooking the bay.

Google has introduced an application that uses artificial intelligence to help people understand the condition of their skin, hair and nails

Users can use their phone's camera to take three pictures of the problem area, such as a rash on the arm. They will then answer a series of questions about their skin type and other symptoms. As a result, the tool gives a list of possible diseases that it is trained to recognize. Google stressed that the program is not designed to diagnose the problem.


The company decided to fight skin diseases with artificial intelligence because of their prevalence.
