Jon and Kate Gosselin Return German Shepherd Dogs to Breeder
Earlier this year, the TLC channel aired a pre-divorce episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 showing the family visiting a local breeder for two German shepherd puppies to add to their brood of eight children. Kate confessed at the time that she had never owned a dog and feared "all the mess, all the poop, all the pee, the added expense, the hair, [and] the slime."
Now that the Gosselins are divorcing, it seems Kate wants nothing to do with the dogs, reports RadarOnline.com. "Jon blames Kate for having to give up the dogs," RadarOnline quotes a source as saying. Jon -- who splits his time between the family home in Pennsylvania and an apartment in New York City -- blames Kate because she refuses to care for the dogs and their eight children when he is not at the house, reports RadarOnline.com.
Last week, the 15-month old dogs named Shoka and Nala were returned to their breeder, Jeff Christopher, indefinitely, reports RadarOnline.com. "I've got them for an undetermined amount of time," Christopher tells RadarOnline.com. "There was no discussion of a time when Jon is going to pick them up. Nothing is final."
It seems the dogs may one day come back to the Gosselins -- at least according to Kate. "They'll come back I'm sure at some point. But for now, I just needed a break."
According to RadarOnline.com, despite his inability to care for the dogs full-time, Jon still wants to breed one of them. Um, does someone have a reproduction addiction?
Apparently, Jon has yet to decide which dog he will spay or neuter -- Shoka, the male who "has the beautiful German line in his coat" or Nala, the female, who has "the darker American coat," reports RadarOnline.com. We think eight's enough for Jon, do you?
