No Surprise Here...
When I first read, back in February, that, "Jon and Kate plus 8," were bringing home, not one but TWO German Shepherd puppies, I was aghast. And I was angry that there was a breeder out there, that thought this was a safe, forever home for two, high energy, working dogs.
It came as no surprise,today, when I read, that reality television personality Jon Gosselin, had sent his two German Shepherd packing, back to their breeder!!! Yup!!! Jon and Kate have discarded their family pets, Nala and Shoka. It is being said that Jon is blaming his estranged Kate for the entire situation. He is claiming that Kate refused to take care of the dogs while she spent time at their home.
It may not be the worst thing for the two German Shepherds. Earlier this summer Jon Gosselin’s comments about how the eight children treated the dogs were overheard and passed on to People Magazine. "Those kids beat them up, climb on them, pull their tails, bite at them, drag them around and everything you can imagine not to do to an animal, they've done.”
Any responsible breeder would have seen this for the train wreck that it is. I will give the breeder a little credit for taking the dogs back.
I hope the dogs aren't too scarred from their experience. Just as I hope the 8 children in this train wreck make it out whole and happy. I hope, too, the dogs don't end up with the octo-mom, next.
