Andy Cohen made the very difficult decision to rehome his rescue dog, Wacha. Cohen announced the news on Instagram. He said he waited as long as he could to share this because Wacha is his first child, a beautiful rescue puppy. He also treats him as his pride and joy.
In 2013, the TV personality adopted the hound mix. The two were often seen walking around New York City; Cohen brought him to work, he even appeared on some of his shows, and he was also all over his social media.
However, when he welcomed his son Benjamin in February 2019, their dynamics shifted, with Cohen mentioning a few instances of spontaneous aggression. Following one particular incident, Cohen was led to the conclusion that his home was actually not a good place for him. Having him there could be devastating for his son and even more so for the dog.
Fortunately, Cohen was able to rehome Wacha to the dog's second family, explaining that this was the house that Wacha stayed at whenever he left town. He says that the dog is thriving in his new surroundings.
Cohen, on the other hand, is in pain. Even though they can still see each other, a piece of his heart is missing. The beagle-foxhound mix was rescued from a West Virginia kill shelter. Though Cohen was reluctant to get a dog because he feared he wouldn't have enough time, he fell in love at first sight.
Wacha, according to Cohen, changed his life. He introduced him to love, care, and, finally, family life. He believed that they were supposed to cross paths at that precise moment. He also said that they saved each other. For now, knowing that he has a home and is happy gives him peace of mind.
