Whitney Way Thore adopted Neeshi at ex-fiance’s encouragement
Whitney Way Thore is an animal lover. However, prior to meeting Chase Severino, the TLC star was more of a cat person. At her ex-fiance’s encouragement, Whitney added a dog to her three-cat household. Ollie, Wanda, and Henchi are the names of Whitney’s three cats, per Distractify.
A year and a half ago, the television personality adopted a four-year-old black standard poodle named Neeshi. The furry friend made occasional appearances on Whitney’s social media.
However, a rumor about the dog recently came to light. Did Whitney replace Neeshi with a new dog?
Whitney Way Thore explains what happened after fans accuse her of discarding dog
Dog lovers are a fierce breed, especially on the internet. They make a ruckus at the slightest sign of neglect or abuse. Somehow a rumor is circulating online that Whitney Way Thore got rid of Neeshi and replaced her with an identical poodle. What?? Why?
The rumor got back to the TLC star and she shut it down in a lengthy Instagram post. No, she didn’t discard Neeshi for another dog. Rather, she simply changed the poodle’s name to a better fitting name. Neeshi is now known as Goose.
Whitney shared several photos of Goose, AKA Neeshi “living her best life.” One photo shows the dog wearing an orange Emotional Support harness.
Part of the family
To let fans know that Goose/Neeshi is well-loved, Whitney shared a photo of “Uncle Todd” spoiling his canine bestie. In one photo, he carries the rather large dog in his arms. In another, he’s showing the adorable pooch a photo of herself.
Many fans took to the comments to express respect for Todd’s unabashed love for Whitney’s dog.
However, others couldn’t look past the huge ring on the MBFFL star’s finger. Whitney sparked engagement rumors earlier this summer after sporting the massive ring on an outing with her French boyfriend.
But don’t get too excited. In a recent interaction with her Instagram followers, Whitney explained that the ring was a family heirloom.
