Would you clone your dog who already crossed the rainbow? This woman from China did exactly that. After her 8-year-old female golden retriever named Hu Hu passed away due to ovarian cancer, she decided to clone her.
Devastated by the loss of her favorite pet she looked, and looked what she could do where she could do it. After some time the 23-year-old Li Xiaoling, made a request to the Sinogene cloning company in Beijing.
These kind of procedures will cost you around €41,000 which is roughly $50,230.
“I was very attached because she was my companion and gave me so much comfort in my life. So although it’s expensive, she’s worth it,” Li said as quoted by Chinese media.
This company already successfully cloned a two-year-old British Shorthair cat named Garlic, marking the first time that Sinogene had managed to clone a feline.
But how do they do it?
Well, experts will duplicate the cells taken from the dog’s thigh within a week and will then implant the cloned embryos into surrogate mother dogs.
