February 13 According to U.S. media reports, an 8-year-old puppy named Lulu in Tennessee inherited $5 million from its late owner.
Bill Doris, 84, the owner of the puppy, wrote in his will before his death in 2020, according to a local report from the New York Post, citing a local report in Nashville, Tennessee: “My $5 million will be transferred to a trust fund.
Will be used to care for my border collie Lulu after I die.”
The puppy named Lulu will be supervised by Martha Burton, 88, who had taken care of Lulu while Doris was on a business trip.
Burton said, “Doris really likes this dog.” Doris’s friends said that he had a large amount of real estate assets and investments.
However, Doris stated in his will that the estate only allowed Burton to reimburse Lulu “reasonable expenses” every month.
This is not the first time that there has been media reports that pet owners have left a large amount of money to their dogs.
In 2015, a woman living in Queens, New York, rewrites her will, leaving her Maltese dog with a million dollars worth of wealth, including jewelry, trust funds and vacation homes.
