In June, the "Radio Andy" host disclosed that the idea of rehoming Wacha began after an incident that occurred on the day of the "Below Deck" reunion filming. 

After the unfortunate incident, Cohen reached out to the rescue organization he got Wacha from, his dog trainer, and his family and friends for their advice.
