According to the will, a trust must meet all of the animal's needs.
After the death of the American businessman Bill Dorris, a single man, his dog inherited five million dollars. According to the last will of the deceased, the money will be kept in a special fund and will be used for the maintenance costs of the animal, local media announced this Thursday.
"Five million dollars will be transferred to a trust that will be created after my death for the care of my border collie Lulu [...] to satisfy all her needs," says Dorris' will. It is not specified there what will happen to such a sum of money when Lulu, who is 8 years old, dies one day.
The dog will remain in the custody of a friend of the deceased, Martha Burton. "Frankly, I don't know what to think about it, to tell the truth. He really loved the dog," said the new owner of the animal. And after admitting, with a smile, that there is no way to spend five million dollars on the dog, she said "well, I would like to try." Dorris's estate is currently being inherited and transferred to the fund for later use for the benefit of Lulu.
