How Andy Cohen's Dog Wacha Is Doing after Being Rehomed for Behavioral Issues
On a recent episode of Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM's “Radio Andy,” the star gave an update on rehoming his dog, Wacha. The star shared that the dog was thriving and happy.
On Monday’s episode of “Radio Andy,” Cohen, 51, revealed that his rescue dog, Wacha, was “happy” in his new home. The television personality first revealed that he had to rehome his pet because the canine was showing "some occasional random signs of aggression."
He shared the news on May 29, 2020, via his Instagram account. Cohen also included a cute video where he was seen playing with the dog.

PUTTING WACHA DOWN
On his radio show, the “Watch Watch Happens Live (WWHL)” host explained how he’d consulted various people before deciding to rehome Wacha. Dog trainer Brandon McMillan also warned him that if the dog did something bad he’d need to be put down.
The star was mainly concerned for his son Benjamin “Ben” Allen, 16-months-old. Cohen confessed: "That obviously is the untenable situation that I couldn't have lived with.”
THE DOG IS HAPPY
The beagle-foxhound mix now lives in Connecticut and Cohen recently visited him. The Bravo star shared: "The thing I want you guys to know is that Wacha is happy.”
TAKING WACHA FOR A WALK
He also described his pet as "an in the moment dog." The host revealed how during the visit he’d taken the pet on a walk for one hour.
PET ISN’T DEPRESSED
He shared how he planned on continuing with the visits. The dog’s new owner told Cohen that "there were no signs that he was depressed or feeling any kind of way" after his visit.
COHEN’S RELATIONSHIP WITH WACHA
Even though the star is heartbroken by having to give away his pet, he insisted that Wacha would remain a part of his life. Before giving the dog away, Cohen had him for almost seven years.
BEN’S FASCINATION WITH THE DOG
The pet’s new home is a place where Wacha has stayed whenever Cohen was out of town. Almost a year before when Ben came into the picture, the star had informed his WWHL viewers that Ben was "fascinated by Wacha."
