A dog from Budochka, a small village located in Belarus, inherited almost a million dollars from a citizen of the United States who is of Belarusian origin.
According to RIAN, the dog is named Zhulik, and is ten-years-old. The person that left the money to the dog is the late John Fyodorov, who was born in Budochka, but emigrated to America after the second World War.
According to NDTV, the dog's owner Vasily Potapov, said that Fyodorov came to the village in 2007 and said that the dog reminded him of his own dog, named Valet, that died in the 50s. Valet was ill during that time, and Fyodorov had a choice between expensive surgery for Valet, or buying a ticket to Sacramento. He chose to go to America.
Valet eventually died, and Fyodorov did not forgive himself for the death of Valet, and that is why he decided to leave an inheritance to a dog that lived in his native country.
According to PanArmenian, a lawyer confirmed that a special bank account was opened up for the dog, and currently there is $993,700 in it.
Fyodorov's last will also says that the dog has its own room that is equipped with a plasma TV and a large bed, as well as having balanced meals three times a day, and walks in the fresh air. The dog also has the right to travel once a year to any country in the world, and the dog chooses the location by looking at a map and pointing its muzzle at a place.
