Dead dog lives again after British owners successfully clone him

After losing their beloved pet dog Dylan to a brain tumor in June, this British couple successfully had him cloned by a company in South Korea for $100,000.

The first-of-its-kind boxer puppy was born on Boxing Day and was cloned from Dylan two weeks after his death—the previous record for dog cloning was held at five days after death, according to the Guardian.

Laura Jacques, 29, and Richard Remde 43 of West Yorkshire, England enlisted the help of the controversial cloning company Sooam Biotech Research Foundation to bring back their pup. The only laboratory of its kind, it can bring back your pet for a cool price of $100,000 per procedure.

The newborn puppy's name isn't Dylan like his predecessor, but the couple named him Chance after a character in the Disney movie Homeward Bound. Chance is expected to have a brother in just a few short days—another clone puppy named Shadow also after a character in the movie.
