German Shepherd Gunther VI sits by the pool at a house formally owned by pop star Madonna, Monday, Nov. 15, 2021, in Miami.
A Miami, Florida mansion once owned by Madonna is back on the market with the seller a pampered pooch.
The Vogue hitmaker sold the waterfront property to the trust of a German Shepherd named Gunther VI in 2000, and now the hound’s managers are offloading the pad.
The high-living hound was born into the lavish lifestyle of his ancestor Gunter III, who was awarded millions when his owner, German countess Karlotta Liebenstein passed away in 1992, according to the Associated Press. Gunther VI’s trust is worth nearly US$500 million.
The 1.2-acre waterfront property is now on the market with an asking price of $31.75 million – way above the $7.5 million the pop star asked for the place 21 years ago, according to Miami’s property appraiser.
According to the listing, the mansion overlooks Biscayne Bay and has nine bedrooms, eight and a half bathrooms, and a swimming pool.
“(The dog) lives in Madonna’s former master bedroom,” Ruthie Assouline, the real estate agent who is managing the sale of the property told the Associated Press.
Carla Riccitelli, one of Gunther’s caretakers, also serves on a board that oversees the trust and told the AP that the the German Shepherd, whose main residence is in Tuscany, Italy, also travels on private jets and has a personal chef to cook his meals.
