Degeneres Gave Pet Away Before

ELLEN DeGENERES gave a pet dog away to a member of her staff two years before her recent pooch scandal, according to reports.

The talk show host and her partner Portia de Rossi came under fire by the Mutts And Moms agency after handing over custody of the Brussels Griffon mix to DeGeneres’ hairdresser after it fought with her cats.

Now dog owner Kerri Randles claims she gave DeGeneres a pooch named Stormy two years ago (05), only to find out she had given it away two months later.

She tells New York gossip column PageSix, “She may have had it for much less time than that. I only say two months because that’s when I called to check on the dog and found out she no longer had it.

“She acted like she was keeping it for life. I was totally shocked. I thought she was out of her mind.”

They are trying to find forever homes for these animals, and i the dog just ends up passed around from home to home, that’s not good for the dog. I have no idea if the pet agency met with this hairdresser and her family. It may be that, despite what Degeneres says, it wasn’t the best home for the dog. Also, if they set this rule, and they break it for a celeb, everyone’s going to think it’s okay to break it, and it sets a precedent that could be bad for other animals.
