The research team from /*Seoul National University*/ called the dogs the first transgenic dogs carrying fluorescent genes.
Scientists took skin cells from a beagle, inserted fluorescent genes into the cells and eggs that were implanted into a mixed-breed dog.
Six female beagles were born in December 2007, only four survived.
Researchers say the process could help find new treatments for genetic diseases such as /*Parkinson's*/ disease.
A South Korean scientist created glowing cats two years ago based on similar cloning techniques.
