Andy Cohen Gives Emotional Update After Rehoming His Rescue Dog

Bravo network king and host of Watch What Happens Live! Andy Cohen is speaking out about the rehoming of his beloved rescue dog Wacha.

It was revealed earlier this year that Wacha had been rehomed after an incident took place involving the dog and Andy's 1-year-old-son, Benjamin.

Now, the 52-year-old is speaking out in an emotional new Instagram post.

Fans may remeber that Andy Cohen announced he would be rehoming his beloved dog Wacha at the end of last month.

The pair had spent the past seven years together, and it was clear the decision did not come easily to Andy.

"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," Andy began.

"When he came into my life, my world changed."

"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."

Andy continued: "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."

"Keeping him here could be catastrophic for Ben and worse for Wacha."

Ben is Andy's precious baby angel 1-year-old son.

It's clear to followers of Andy's that the 52-year-old was trying to make the relationship between his two loves work.

However, some things are just not meant to be.

Andy then revealed the good news that Wacha is now living with his "second family" and is still a part of his life.

"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."

I know, right?! I'm getting emotional too!

"He is thriving," Andy continued.

"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."

If this isn't making you want to rescue a dog right now IDK what could!

"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. Thank you, Wacha," Andy concluded.

It's undeniable that he made this tough decision out of love for both his boys, no matter how difficult it was for him, personally.

While it's clear the decision was not an easy one for Andy, we're so happy Wacha is in a loving home and is still a part of Andy's life!
