A South Korean company says it has taken its first order for the cloning of a pet dog.
A woman from the United States wants her dead pitbull terrier – called Booger – re-created.
RNL Bio is charging the woman, from California, $150,000 (¬£76,000) to clone the pitbull using tissue extracted from its ear before it died.
The work will be carried out by a team from Seoul National University, where the first dog was cloned in 2005.
