Cloned Dog Fathers Eight Puppies
This story is apparently true…I honestly didn’t even think we were aloud to clone animals, but I’m obviously wrong. Those South Koreans, y’all! It’s kind of a heart-warming little story. This family lost their beloved dog, Lancelot, back in 2009, and has his DNA frozen. This led to the clone becoming Lancelot Encore. And he’s now become a father of EIGHT puppies!!!
We decided to clone our beloved Lancelot for a very easy reason: The technology was finally in place. His DNA was frozen and the rest was history. They had cloned a few dogs and it seemed to be fate. The people to execute the technology were available, although a long way away in South Korea.
We are people who believe in being out front. But mostly we had found a very human dog in our Sir Lancelot. We loved and respected him and decided that 12 years was too short. He returned that feeling many times over.
We expected to get a dog that looked basically the same. We wanted the essence of our wonderful pet. What we have found is that we got so much more.Lancey Encore the clone, has the same behavior, the same movements and has all of the same traits of his predecessor. That part we did not expect. Lancelot, our PRINCE CHARMING had finally come home
