Kylie Jenner’s Christmas puppy has already caused Kardashian drama

Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner got a new puppy for Christmas. He’s a beautiful Italian Greyhound named Norman. Kylie immediately posted a picture to Instagram and captioned it, “dreams do come true.” The little fella is adorable, but I worry about his fate as a Kardashian pet. We all saw what happened to Kim’s miserable Mercy a few years ago, and there’s already drama about this doggie.

That’s an unfair assumption for me to throw out in the first paragraph, right? There’s also the case of Kendall Jenner’s Great Dane puppy, who was a gift from Rob last year. The fallout soon showed up on KUWTK. Kendall would leave the dog locked up in a hallway and disappear on her modelling gigs. No one ever let him out or checked on him, and Kris was left cleaning up the giant, smelly mess. Poor dog. Not-so-poor Kris.

This family and pets do not mix. Radar says the family already regrets gifting Norman to Kylie as a present. They were reportedly hoping the dog would make Kylie “more responsible,” but that hasn’t happened. Kylie asked for the dog but refuses to take care of him. Kylie is only 17, and she’s been surrounded by vapidness for her entire life. Kim and Kendall haven’t provided any decent examples on how to treat an animal. Kylie “got upset that she couldn’t go out one night because she had to stay home” with Norman, and now Khloe is the default caretaker. Khloe’s already posting dog-sitting photos.

I don’t mean to pile onto Kylie, but this story sounds believable to a degree. The dog will be used as a storyline on the show, and Kris will be forced to clean up more poop. Norman deserves a better fate, and the Kardashian Klan shouldn’t be allowed to have pets. Radar pulled together photos of the missing Kardashian animals. Sad.

    Let’s teach her more about responsibility…. by getting her a puppy for Christmas. Because puppies never get abandoned if they’re a Christmas gift. Nope.

    Bet it was from a pet store/puppy mill, too.

    • bettyrose says:

      It should be against the law to give animals as presents. Animals have their own personalities and needs. Humans and animals need to meet first to determine compatability. A teenage brain cannot even fathom what a 15 year commitment to a pet means. That’s what parents are there for. These peoole just suck.

      • Anony says:

        I agree, an animal should NEVER be a gift. Never, ever, ever. The new owner must be the one to commit. I cringe whenever someone tells me about getting so-and-so a new puppy/kitty gift. Totally inappropriate.

      • Sea Dragon says:

        Yes, because individuals can’t be regulated enough, especially when it comes to their personal lives. Scroll down and read how Anastasia’s shelter handles gift adoptions. It sounds like they have a great system that works for both animals and humans alike.

      • bettyrose says:

        Sea Dragon:
        Animals aren’t inanimate objects to put on a shelf. Keeping them safe is not “regulating humans.” I did read about that wonderful shelter gift card idea and I applaud it, but no one was accusing shelters of being irresponsible.

      • jwoolman says:

        Betty Rose- my teenage brain sure could. My little bundle of mongrel kitty fur arrived when I had just finished sophomore year in high school. She went to college, grad school, my first teaching job and then freelance with me. Had a good almost 16 year run, too.

        There’s just something wrong with the Kardashians and pets, that’s all. They go through dogs especially rapidly, which is sad because dogs are like humans and need to have real attention, routine exercise with their pet humans, and an important job to feel happy. But the Kardashians can’t even manage a more independent cat, a very different species that just demands lots of safe places to snooze, plenty of food and water, a clean litter box, occasional excitement chasing a rodent or bug or string when in the mood, and being worshipped as the gods they are.

    The only furry thing this child can take care of is her weave, and even that needs the ASPCA.

    I can’t with her face

  4. Dawn says:

    Too bad they didn’t decided to put her back in HS for her Christmas present. She just turned 17 a few months back so she would only be a junior now. Think of all the education she is missing out on just because her mother thinks that sex is more important than actual knowledge. This little girl doesn’t stand a chance in hell to ever be normal or have a normal relationship with anyone. I see her going from one rapper to the next until she ages out of that lifestyle.

    • bettyrose says:

      I guess they can safely assume that they will always have more money that they know what to do with, so why bother learning anything useful?

  5. Suzy from Ontario says:

    Didn’t they get two black lab puppies for Xmas a few years ago? What happened to those pups?

  6. savu says:

    I’m a reporter and I did a story on giving pets as gifts. Animal professionals say NEVER do it. You don’t know if this person is committed, ready, or even actually wants it. Plus, the person doesn’t pick the pet themselves, so that bond isn’t strong. The animal shelter staff I talked to told me around mid-January, it gets so crowded in there. It’s really sad.

    That being said, people can still give a pet as a gift, just don’t make it a surprise. Involve the future owner in the process. Our local humane society calls the future owner to talk to them, no matter what. Sure, it’s not a golden retriever puppy under the tree with a bow, but it’s a much better situation for an animal when it’s been chosen by its owner.

    • Anastasia says:

      All very true. My local shelter allows people to buy a gift voucher that pays for an adoption. You give that to the person as a gift, then THEY come and pick out a dog or cat. It’s a win-win for the shelter, because they still get to check out the potential owner in person, the potential owner gets to pick the animal they want, and sometimes people just don’t go get an animal and the voucher is non-refundable (but good for a year). In that case, the gifter basically made a $70 donation to the shelter. My shelter told me (I volunteer there) that’s what happens about half the time. Of course they’d like to get an animal adopted, but a donation doesn’t hurt, either.

      • doofus says:

        what a wonderful idea!

      • Tiffany :) says:

        That is really fantastic!

      • lunchcoma says:

        That sounds like a MUCH better idea! Even in cases where the person receiving the gift wanted a pet, there’s still the issue of individual personality and compatibility. I suspect the “gifts” work much better when the new owner is the one who gets to choose their animal.

  7. lower-case deb says:

    if she wants something nice and furry, she can just raise a pet moss or a pet moldy bread or something. it’ll grow nice and healthy with minimal care, too.

  8. Tiffany says:

    Of course they will get dogs that require extra attention and maintenance and then completely ignore them. With dogs like greyhounds and danes need to be taken out to burn off that energy and want for attention. So they really think these pups are self sufficient. Idiots!!!

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      I don’t know a ton about Italian greyhounds, but we have a retired greyhound and he is the laziest damn dog I’ve ever met. He has his own couch, sleeps about 18hrs a day, and HATES exercise. We have alot of wildlife in our neighborhood, and he refuses to chase anything. I’m not complaining–he is the perfect dog for our family because he is SO low-maintenance. The few Italian greyhounds I’ve met were more lap dogs with a nervous temperament, so not very active. All that being said, they have certain needs (especially emotional and dietary)–just like any pet–and shouldn’t be gifted on a whim. Idiots.

      • jwoolman says:

        Scarlet- are you sure your dog isn’t part cat?!? Of course if he’s retired, maybe he really does need the rest from his wild youth.

    • mayamae says:

      My cousin has two Italian Greyhounds and they are high strung and active. They can leap up to your face like they have springs on their feet. Very high maintenance for a dog.

  9. RobN says:

    Whatever happened to the chocolate lab puppies from a few years back?

  10. Joy says:

    I think a house plant would have been a better choice. Poor Norman.

  11. Anaya says:

    I didn’t realize they’ve had so many pets. With the exception of Kim’s cat that was sick and died, the other pets were probably all but given away to friends of the family. It’s for the best though. These people are way too self absorbed to care for anyone other than themselves.

  12. Talie says:

    You give a kid a dog… you better be prepared to be taking care of it.

  13. kri says:

    God, this coven is digusting. Hopefully Norman finds a kind employee to care for him-he could always ask North for a reference.

  14. Gina says:

    You give a much younger child a pet to teach them responsibility. She is 17 and has been through a myriad of pets. They should do a reel of all the Kardashian animals these children wanted over the years and their fates. The one I remember most vividly was Kim’s cat from Kanye “Mercy.” Oh the struggle she had with one little pussy cat until she had to give it away and then met its demise….only was a preview to how she is as a mother. Oh those Kardashians. BTW, hope she doesn’t dye it’s ears to match hers.

    • Anony says:

      I actually think it’s a terrible idea to give a younger child a pet to ‘teach them responsibility’. If they aren’t responsible already, they should not have a pet. Not even a goldfish. Pets are not toys and they have the right to be treated fairly.

      • lunchcoma says:

        I agree. Children can learn to be responsible in so many ways. All the “get a dog!” method results in is an unhappy pup and either an unhappy kid or an unhappy parent who’s become the real caregiver – and that’s in the better scenarios when the poor dog doesn’t end up abandoned.

      • bettyrose says:

        I grew up with a cat I was given (from the shelter) as a kid. I can’t even imagine my childhood without that cat, and I always thought of him as “mine.” Looking back, I don’t think I ever once cleaned his litter or filled his food bowl. I don’t even think I knew those things needed doing. I guess my mom never really considered him my cat and just used me as an excuse to adopt him. LOL. And that’s fine just as long as it’s what the parents intend.

  15. MediaMaven says:

    The only pets these nut-jobs should be given are Chia Pets. That’s it. They’re so self-centered and narcissistic, a living, breathing animal doesn’t stand a chance. #PrayersForNorman #RIPMercy

  16. GGRosey says:

    I’m positive that dog is the kindest creature in their whole family. Kylie’s face looks a bit wonky.

  17. jenn12 says:

    These idiots shouldn’t even get goldfish, but let’s be realistic: the maids and housekeepers are taking care of things. Kris isn’t cleaning up anything and the maid watches the dogs.

  18. Amy says:

    If she can’t take care of a bunch of badly dyed follicles sewn into her head how would she take care of an animal???

    Please someone…adopt that weave and that poor dog, one is already dying a painful death.

  19. Lucy says:

    Why do these people happen to adorable, innocent puppies?

  20. marie H says:

    My god… this is just, soooooo. I can’t imagine. We plan our vacations around bringing our beagle. He’s family. I can’t even imagine locking him in a hallway or leaving and ignoring him. His name was my daughters first word.

    There is a special place in hell for people like that.

    • Anony says:

      I agree. What the hell…they have the money to EASILY pay for someone to dog-sit while she is away. Why does the dog need to be kept locked up in the hallway for extra long periods of time? That’s cruel. She could have hired a dog trainer to ensure the dog was house-trained and then hired a daily walker. They are super, mega rich so it just shows a lack of HEART not means.

  21. Greek Chic says:

    The episode with Kris “cleaning” the poop of Kendal’s dog happened to be the only one that i have seen of their show out of curiosity…and of course i regret it. Does anyone believe that Kris really cleans the mess by herself? I doubt that she even took care of her children,clean them or changed diapers when they were babies,let alone the dogs.

  22. lunchcoma says:

    Why don’t people put a little more thought into whether their pets match their lifestyles? I like to go out in the evenings too. That’s why I got a cat. Before that, when my life was really unpredictable, I didn’t have pets at all. Just because you like dogs or think they’re cute doesn’t mean you’re up for being a good dog owner.

  23. yep says:

    I think an inquiry on where the past dogs and cats are, is in order.
    They should be held accountable.

  24. qtip says:

    I think using their history with petd should be made into an ASPCA.

  25. Andrea says:

    Giving someone a living thing to “make them more responsible” = great idea. Not.

  26. gradskooljockey says:

    This whole thing is making me miss my dog, who is staying with my parents an hour away while we save up for our pet deposit. (We are transitioning from military life and it’s been a hard year and a half, but we finally have our own place. We couldn’t have done this without my parents and brother.) My dog was my baby before I had a baby, and he was there with me through my husband’s last deployment. He’s the cutest, lovey-ist bark alarm system I’ve ever had. Pets are family, not objects!

    And this is probably just me, but I think Kylie has a prettier, more interesting face than Kendall. Or any of the Kardashians/Jenners.
