The story of Gunther VI became known almost 20 years ago. The PR version says that Gunther the shepherd dog was a pet of a wealthy and lonely German Countess Karlotta Liebenstein, who left her entire fortune to her beloved dog and his offspring after her death. SSPDaily tells about it.

The details of this story were told by the Daily Star.

The richest dog in the world lives not only better than most people but literally bathes in luxury. Gunther has a BMW car with a personal driver, a villa in the Bahamas that used to belong to Madonna, and a huge yacht in a port in the Caribbean. His fortune is estimated at 310 million euros.

The dog lives in a luxurious house in the Caribbean worth 73 million euros, has a whole staff of servants, owns the Italian football club Pisa, and travels the world.

Gunther has pages on social media where his PR team demonstrates the dog's life of gluttony, yacht trips, meaningless meetings, and photo shoots.

The publication writes that the money is actually managed not by the dog, but by its legal representative, 66-year-old Italian businessman Maurizio Mian, CEO of The Gunther Corporation.

According to Gunther's PR manager Lucy Clarkson, when the dog inherited from Countess Liebenstein, a special trust fund was set up to preserve the money for Gunther and his descendants.

But later, when they decided to make a documentary about the dog, Maurizio Mian admitted that he had invented the whole story with the Countess and used the dog as a front for his media and real estate investments. As it turned out, Mian is an eccentric heir to the pharmaceutical business, and he inherited his millions from his mother.

"This story sounds crazy. So, of course, we were intrigued from the very beginning. And over the years, many media outlets have told Gunter's story. But this time, we were able to get unprecedented information," said documentary filmmaker Aurélien Letourge.

"Maurizio lives between reality and fantasy. For him, the destruction of the myth of the Countess and her pet was a great failure. He lived in this illusion for so long that it became part of his personality," said Emilie Dumay, the film's executive producer.
