A British couple lost their dog to a brain tumor and wanted another dog just like him.

So they had their boxer, Dylan, cloned into two puppies for nearly $100,000.

Laura Jacques and Richard Remde, from West Yorkshire, took Dylan’s DNA to The Sooam Biotech Research Foundation in South Korea where it was then placed inside a surrogate.

The couple got the puppies on December 26, also known as Boxing Day in the U.K.

According to BBC News, Jacques said the puppies are “really cute and look just like Dylan.”

The puppies will be named Chance and Shadow.
