Does Dorit Kemsley Have Any Pets?

Breed: Poodle

Dorit Kemsley adopted a brown Toy Poodle named Pumpkin in December 2022.

Lucy Lucy Apple Juice

Dorit Kemsley faced allegations of mistreating her dog, Lucy Lucy Apple Juice, in what became known as the #PuppyGate scandal. Accused of locking the dog in her basement and then giving her away to a shelter, Kemsley took to social media to set the record straight. She shared heartwarming clips of her family interacting with Lucy, aiming to prove that the dog was indeed a loved part of the household. Her children, Jagger and Phoenix, were shown playing with the pup, while her husband Paul, known as P.K., showered Lucy with affectionate kisses.

The controversy began when Kemsley adopted Lucy from Vanderpump Dogs, owned by co-star Lisa Vanderpump. Kemsley stated she was compelled to find Lucy a new home after the dog bit her daughter and husband. Believing she was sending Lucy to a caring home, Kemsley was shocked to learn the dog ended up in a shelter. The incident was heavily featured in the ninth season of the reality show, as the shelter identified Lucy through a microchip linked to Vanderpump Dogs. Kemsley’s videos and statements were her way of demonstrating that Lucy was not mistreated while part of her family.
