Andy Cohen's Dog Wacha Has Been Rehomed for His Son Ben's Safety

Andy Cohen has announced that he had to make the difficult decision to rehome his beloved dog Wacha due to “occasional random signs of aggression.”

The 51-year-old Watch What Happens Live host and Bravo exec became a father to son Benjamin last year and he said the decision to find Wacha a new family was for the safety of both the dog and his son.

“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,” Andy wrote on Instagram. “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. Keeping him here could be catastrophic for Ben and worse for Wacha,” Andy continued. “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. 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,” Andy wrote. “My dog changed me. He opened me up to love.. to caring… and ultimately to having a family. 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‘s best friend Anderson Cooper recently became a dad as well and he’s using the same nanny!
