$12 Million Maltese Dies

by Dr. Chris

June 12, 2011 Trouble, Leona Helmsley’s Maltese has died. The dog was the richest dog in the World when it inherited $12 million after Leona Helmsley’s death. Trouble was 12 years old and lived in Sarasota, Florida. The dog will be placed beside Helmsley in the family’s mausoleum in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Westchester County, N.Y.

The dog was blind and had numerous other health issues. The dog also had a body guard after receiving up to 30 kidnapping and death threats.

Leona Helmsley was an heiress who died in 2007, the wife of Harry Helmsley who became a billionaire from hotels. She bought Trouble from a pet store after her husband died and pampered it.

She made headlines when she died because instead of giving her inheritance to relatives, she gave most of her money to her dog, Trouble. Her nickname, the “Queen of Mean” shown true by giving her money to her dog and not her grandchildren.

Only two grandchildren were given any money, provided that they visit their father’s grave once a year.

Leona Helmsley served 18 months of prison time in the 90’s for tax evasion.

Maltese dogs are small and have white silky hair. For more check out: Maltese Dog Breed Profile.

It so sad to hear that, Trouble has died. She was indeed a brave and loving one, that after all these kidnapping and murder attempts rose against her, she survived all of them so finely. Leona was so fond of her and it was this love for her made Trouble the richest dog on earth. ICD 10 Coding

Where is the $$ Now.
by: rcknfrogi

It's sad to read that troubles has died. I had a Malteese, they are a dog who knows no fear. They do live up to their name.

I know a lawyer on 49th st. in NY was in charge of the funds. Will that money now be turned over to the ASPCA who always needs money, caring humans are working hard 24/7 and do spend it only as needed. Can a public record tell the money trail?

I pray it hasn't lined the pockets of a few who arten't animal lovers.
