Seoul, South Korea, March 12, 2008—Snuppy the Afghan Hound—the world's first cloned dog— barks during a photo call at Seoul National University's College of Veterinary Medicine.

Snuppy—born in 2005—was cloned from adult cells by somatic nuclear cell transfer.

A South Korean biotech company affiliated with the lab is offering dog owners the chance to clone their pets. The service will cost up to 148,000 U.S. dollars, according to the Reuters news agency.
