2005: Snuppy, the world's first cloned dog, is born in South Korea. The Afghan hound puppy was created using the cell of an ear from an adult Afghan hound and involved 123 surrogate mothers, of which only three produced pups, with Snuppy being the lone survivor. He was later named as Time Magazine's "Most Amazing Invention" of the year for 2005.
