The odd thing about clones is they don't necessarily look exactly alike their predecessors, For example, there are around 20 cloned "famous" Quarter Horses out there. And they all look somewhat difference than the horse they are supposed to be-again. For example, one has a blaze where the true horse did not, 1 is quite bigger than it's 'original'...etc. Although many look very similar, so much so that it can leave you in awe at times, they are net technically the same in looks.

And who knows how they actually act when compared to the predecessors. The temperament and personality has shown to vary somewhat.

So all-in-all, this woman is an idiot and now she's a homeless idiot with more dogs to take care of than she can possibly handle.

Just what the service dog community is clamoring for- pit bulls

Wow, that's weird. Wonder what is going on there? Is a blaze environmentally influenced?

Did anyone of you hear the NPR All Things Considered story about the cloned bull? Priceless. They cloned him bc he was exceptionally gentle and they all loved him. His clone was mean and gored everyone.

Why is she homeless?

I think if you have that much money to spend on cloning, you're not going to be out on the streets becaues of it...

I don't know what to think of the overall cloning...too many factors come into play in making your dog "your dog". I could clone Sawyer and he would probably end up looking completely different and not act like "Sawyer". Genetics is still a crap shoot of chance. Just look at the differenences in normal litters...they're all working with the same genes there and we all know how varied litters can be.

Last I heard, its about a quarter of a million . . . the dogs probably all came under that price because I suspect they were "spares" made to insure success.

Price may have dropped though, but I get its still over 100,000

well she sold her home...so that'd be one reason some might think she is homeless. I don't know if they said anythign about her living situation now. But GOOD LUCK finding places to rent with 3-5 bully breed dogs.

And she is assuming the others will be SUITABLE for service dog work. Really? They are guinea pig size now...she cannot possibly know that they will have the temperament and drive to be working/service dogs. What's the plan when they don't? I see "Amazing clone dogs for sale $20,000" ads in her future.

Imagine raising 3-5 puppies til adulthood in your home...

I agree she should have adopted 3-5 lookalikes...her odds of getting a dog like her old one are likely...better going that route given the innate lovely temperament of most bully/amstaff/ type dogs.

Ok, smartass. Do your own research then. Or do you know how...................

Second, it states she sold her home. I was being a tad bit sarcastic when I said she was now homeless, but there's a good chance-I would say-that she no longer owns her home.

And your comment about our "vicious blood-thirsty child killing monsters" being service dogs was not just a bit rude, but downright ignorant. I take it you hate all "pit bulls" and think all us owners are drug-dealing gang-banging criminals, eh?

Never mind...........what was I thinking............You can't fight stupid.
