If you own a pet, you might have thought of what would become of him/ her if eventually, you are no more. Who will feed them like you have been doing, ensures he has sound health, happy and overall care? This is the reason, why some people such as Bill Dorris will get a huge amount of money for their dogs.
“Five million dollars will be transferred to a trust to be formed upon my death for the care of my border collie, Lulu,” the will reads, as noted by the News Channel 5. Dorris made the decision before passing away last year at 84 with no wife to whom he could bequeath his massive holdings. Lulu will be placed under Martha Burton's guardianship, who cared for the pooch reportedly during Dorris’ frequent business trips.
The will permits Burton to reimburse for reasonable monthly expenses. It is unclear what will happen to any money left when Lulu passes away. Meanwhile, the biggest inheritance ever is believed to a German shepherd called Gunther III, inherited $80 million from German Countess Karlotta Liebenstein.
