Worlds First Cloned Dog

Snuppy & its Puppies

World's First Cloned Dog

World's first Cloned Dog Snuppy & its Puppies
The nucleus of a skin cell taken from the ear of an adult male Afghan (left) was transferred into an egg cell of a yellow Labrador retriever (right). The altered egg was implanted in the Labrador. The resulting clone, Snuppy, (center) was delivered by caesarian section after 60 days. Scientists say this type of cloning, known as somatic-cell nuclear transfer (SCNT), may be a way to preserve rare species.
Snuppy (right), the first successfully cloned dog, is shown at 67 days after birth with Tai, the three-year-old Afghan hound whose skin cells were used to clone him. South Korean scientists at Seoul National University performed the cloning procedure, and Snuppy was born on April 24, 2005.
World's first cloned dog Snuppy (L) and one of its puppies are seen with researchers at Seoul National University's College of Veterinary Medicine in Seoul Sept. 5, 2008. The cloned dog Snuppy, an Afghan hound, impregnated two dogs through artificial insemination to produce 10 puppies, which were born in May.
One of the puppies fathered by the world's first cloned dog Snuppy is seen at Seoul National University's College of Veterinary Medicine in Seoul Sept. 5, 2008. Snuppy was produced in 2005 by a lab once headed by Hwang Woo-suk, who fell from grace after two of his papers on cloning human embryonic stem cells were found to be based on fabricated data. Independent testing proved that Snuppy was cloned.
