World’s Wealthiest Dog Asks $32 Million for Madonna’s Former Miami Estate

This estate has truly gone to the dogs. Believe it or not, a handsome German shepherd named Gunther VI owns this Miami mansion, and he also boasts a net worth of half a billion bucks. Yes, that is certainly a lot of Beggin’ Strips.

So how did Gunther make his money? Silicon Valley tech startup? Cryptocurrency trading? Derivative swaps? TikTok? Nope. He made it the old fashioned way: he inherited it from his grandfather, Gunther IV, who also inherited from his sire — that would be, of course, Gunther III, who was bequeathed a multimillion-dollar trust from German countess Karlotta Liebenstein, who died in 1992.

It was Gunther IV who purchased the Miami house from Madonna about 20 years ago, paying $7.5 million. Situated behind gates right next to the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, the property includes a 1.2-acre plot with 100 feet of water frontage. Perfect for a hound used to the finer things in life, there are plush lawns and lush landscaping for lifting one’s leg, a swimming pool for cooling off, a private dock for sunbathing whilst taking in open Biscayne Bay and city views. And today’s price? A whopping $31.75 million. Ruthie and Ethan Assouline at Compass hold the listing.

The house is spacious and Mediterranean in style, with 8,400 square feet, 9 bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms, though Gunther VI personally prefers to hang around the grassy yard. There’s also a large kitchen, perfect for rustling up the steaks Gunther prefers, a grand coral staircase, and a great room with vintage millwork. We are not sure if the gold-framed portrait of Gunther that hangs over the living room fireplace is included in the sale, but we’d insist on it.
