China’s first pet cloning service duplicates star pooch

Juice is a one-foot tall canine wonder who has starred in dozens of Chinese film and television productions. As he gets older and his illustrious career peaks, his Beijing-based master has one wish for the mutt – to live on. A mongrel stray adopted off the streets, the nine year-old Juice or “Guozhi” in Mandarin is unable to reproduce since he was neutered from an early age. But his master, animal trainer He Jun, wants to continue his star pooch’s image by making a genetic clone. To achieve that, He went to Sinogene, China’s first biotech company to provide pet cloning services. Sinogene made headlines when it successfully cloned a gene-edited beagle in May last year.
