Four dog clones in Korea. (2008)
Dog cloning is here.
At a cost of $100,00 a piece, the Koreans have cloned a proven drug-sniffing dog. And while under normal conditions only 10% of tested dogs qualify to be “drug dogs”, all seven clones passed.
I believe that eventually (dozens of years from now) cloned pets will be popular because you will be able to custom order dogs and cats that have attractive genetic traits. But unlike today's clones, which are essentially carbon copy twins of the original animal, in the future you'll be able to specify genetic changes to influence color, size and other variable traits in order to personalize your animal companion.
