New York (AP) Leona Helmsley's dog isn't quite as well-heeled as she used to be.

Manhattan surrogate Judge Renee Roth has reduced the trust fund for the little dog, named Trouble, from 12 million dollars to 2 million dollars.

The remaining 10 million now goes to Helmsley's charitable foundation.

The 9-year-old maltese lives in Florida with the general manager of the Helmsley sandcastle hotel. Helmsley died last august.

The court decision, made April 30, became public today.
