Andy Cohen Reveals He Had To Re-Home His Rescue Dog Wacka Due to “Aggression” Issues

Andy Cohen had to say goodbye to his longtime furry best friend, Wacka.

The Watch What Happens Live host shared that he had to re-home his rescue dog after Wacka exhibited “some occasional random signs of aggression” towards his 1-year-old son, Benjamin Allen Cohen.

Adding that Wacka’s continued presence in his home could have proved “catastrophic” for 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,” Andy wrote on Instagram Friday, May 29, referring to Wacka as his “pride and joy.”

“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,” Andy continued. “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 confessed.

According to Andy, Wacka is now living with his second family. Thankfully, the WWHL host says he still gets to see Wacka often but admits it’s not the same. In fact, Andy admits he misses having Wacka by his side day in and day out.

“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,” Andy revealed. 

“We still see each other, but a piece of my heart is gone,” he added. “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.”

Andy says that he and Wacka “rescued each other” and explain how Wacka changed his life forever. 

“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. 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.
