Despite his recent troubles, Jon Gosselin says he can still count on man’s best friend.
“The people outside my house, I can’t control that. But in all the pictures, my lovely puppies sit out there,” the “Jon & Kate Plus 8” star told People.
Gosselin says caring for German Shepherd Dog puppies Shoka and Nala has been a welcome respite from the intense media scrutiny that has followed him and Kate since pictures surfaced of him leaving a bar with another woman earlier this year.
“There is no corner of my wood-framed house that has not been gnawed off and either replaced by my contractor or is ready to be replaced,” he laughs.
Gosselin adds that he and Kate had to install a 3½-mile fence around their rural Pennsylvania property because the dogs, who he calls “loyal creatures,” kept running away.
“They were car chasers. They’re still car chasers, [but] within our gate,” he says.
