Dog Selling Miami Mansion Formerly Owned by Madonna, Requesting $ 30M: AP

  • A German shepherd is selling a nine-bedroom waterfront mansion in Miami, the AP reported.
  • Madonna previously owned the mansion until it was sold to the trust of Gunther VI, a dog, in 2000.
  • The trust is descended from the wealthy owner of an ancestor and is worth nearly $ 500 million, the AP said.

A German shepherd named Gunther VI is selling a Miami mansion that was previously owned by pop singer Madonna, the Associated Press reported.

The 1.2-acre waterfront property went on sale Wednesday with a asking price of $ 31.75 million – a huge jump since Madonna sold the villa to Gunther’s trust in 2000 for $ 7.5 million, the Miami property appraiser showed.

The dog’s wealth can be traced back to his ancestor Gunter III, caretakers who manage the farm said, the AP reported. Gunther III inherited millions of dollars from his owner, Karlotta Liebenstein, a German countess who died in 1992, the AP reported.

Since then, the dog’s family tree has been cared for by caregivers, the AP reported.

Gunther VI’s trust is worth nearly $ 500 million, the AP said.

The listing on the real estate agent’s website said the dog’s mansion overlooks Biscayne Bay and has nine bedrooms, eight and a half bathrooms and a swimming pool. The property is one of six waterfront homes and is minutes away from Miami Beach, the list said.

“He lives in Madonna’s former master bedroom,” Ruthie Assouline, the property manager who manages the sale of the property along with her husband, Ethan Assouline, told AP.

Ruthie Assouline did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

Carla Riccitelli, one of Gunther’s caregivers, told the AP that she is part of a board that oversees the trust. The board decides on when to buy and sell real estate in the trust, the AP reported.

The German shepherd, whose main home is in Tuscany, joins the realtors ’meetings and travels by private jets. He also has meals cooked by a chef, Riccitelli told the AP.
