This dog is the 4th generation to inherit

Lucky for us, we can leave our money and assets (by will or trust) to anyone, anything or any animal of our choice.  I've seen some real wild wills in my day.  If we don't have a will, the state will gladly decide who gets our stuff.  I guess I'd rather have my pets benefit than have it go to the third cousin I haven't seen in 45 years, as an example.

The handlers are taking advantage of the dog and the dog doesn't even know it.

I'm a dog lover, but this is ridiculous.

The dog decides nothing... the handlers decide everything.

I think the handlers should be fired and let me take care of the dog! That way only a single person and not multiple people would be required... and I would ensure that at least the 16th generation Gunther XIV would still have quite a few bucks to boot. (* ROFLMAO *)

FWIW

But then you have to have someone execute the will and care for the dog without stealing the money. What if the last dog in the line passes away without heirs?

Too funny.  The handlers are the ones who live in the estates and enjoy the wealth.

Most legacies to an animal expire on the animals death and the remainder of the estate is distributed per the rest, residue and remainder terms of the will...

This one keeps going to the next heir.  This is apparently a very prolific line.

Assuming it's a natural breeding to a female who has multiple puppies per litter they must choose the first born male?  How many females does he breed?  Do they sell the other pups?  Is it AI with a frozen embryo?  Questions questions questions

I don’t know any of that.  Good questions.
