Andy Cohen had to make one of the hardest decisions of his life, giving up his rescue dog after several ‘incidents’ involving his pet’s aggression, and to guarantee the safety of his baby son.
The ‘Watch What Happens Live’ host took to Instagram to announce the heartbreaking news, and explain the situation to fans who may question the decision.
As you know, the Bravo bosses pet pooch accompanied Cohen to the ‘WWHL’ set and mingled with celebrities and guests.
“I’ve put off sharing this news as long as I could. As you may know, Wacha is my first baby, my beautiful rescue puppy. He is my pride and joy. When he came into my life, my world changed,” he began.
Andy explained, “Over the nearly seven years that I’ve been blessed to have Wacha in my life, we have worked to address some occasional random signs of aggression. No effort was spared in the attempt to help Wacha feel adjusted. After an incident a few months ago, numerous professionals led me to the conclusion that my home is simply not a good place for him.”
As for why he made the decision to rehome the puppy, Andy wrote, “Keeping him here could be catastrophic for Ben and worse for Wacha. The good news is that he now has a permanent home with his second family, in the place he lived every single time I went out of town.”
But, the good news is the ‘Real Housewives’ boss says that Wacha is doing great!
“He is thriving. We still see each other, but a piece of my heart is gone. I miss his weight on top of me first thing in the morning. I miss him waiting for me in front of the shower. And I miss the sound of his paws on the floor when I come home. I am not the same person I was when I got him. My dog changed me. He opened me up to love.. to caring… and ultimately to having a family.

The reality television king doesn’t reveal the specific incidents that led to the decision, but it appears it was bad enough to make this tough decision.
Andy ends his heartfelt message by thanking his rescue puppy
from coming into his life when he did — and that they “rescued each other.”
“When I think of him – let’s be honest, when don’t I think of him – it’s with the clarity that we were meant to come into each other’s lives exactly when we did, and that he’s happy, which gives me peace of mind. We did rescue each other,” he wrote.
Andy emotionally ended his IG post, “Thank you, Wacha.”
