In 2010, Conchita the Chihuahua became somewhat of a celebrity when it was revealed her owner, deceased socialite Gail Posner, had bequeathed a Miami mansion to Conchita and Posner’s other two dogs. Along with the home, Conchita and her “sisters” were also given a $3 million trust.
This week, Miami Beach mansion on Sunset Island was sold for $8.4 million. The 9,696-square-foot pad had direct access to Biscayne Bay and has 7 bedrooms, 8 full and 2 half baths, a rooftop terrace, a gym, an elevator, marble floors and a master suite with two large baths.
Conchita and her doggy sisters – a Maltese names April Maria and a Yorkshire Terrier names Lucia – were not the only ones left a fortune. Posner’s household staff was also left a total of $27 million. Certain members of the staff was also allowed to live in the Miami home rent-free as long as they took care of the dogs.
Under the terms of the trust, the mansion was to be sold after the dogs died and the proceeds donated to charity, and is unclear why the home was sold since Conchita is still alive.
It is unclear where Conchita and the others dogs will reside now, though with a $3 million trust it will likely be somewhere very nice.
It should be pointed out that after Posner’s death, her son, Bret Carr, was only left $1 million, which he quickly contested, claiming the staff drugged his mother and conspired to steal her wealth.
