What happened to Brandon McMillan on ‘Lucky Dog’?
Brandon decided to part ways with CBS after he felt the show was not going in the same direction as he had hoped. In October, he took to Instagram to announce his exit from the show.
“As the years went on big money started pouring into the show which meant more cooks in the kitchen making decisions. This is where Hollywood can take a great idea and turn it into a money-driven business. When the fun gets taken out of a tv show then it’s no longer fun to show up,” he wrote.
Brandon also thanked his fans for their support as he wrote, “I cannot thank you all enough for your years of support you all have given me. You were there to see me cry when I said goodbye to Sandy… when I said goodbye to Charlotte… when I said goodbye to little Olive… and countless other dogs. I always made it a point to wear my heart on my sleeve and not hold back my emotions. Being as real as I possibly can be the most important thing for me because you the viewers know acting from reality.” This content could not be loaded
Brandon continued, “I always made it a point to wear my heart on my sleeve and not hold back my emotions. Being as real as I possibly can was the most important thing for me because you the viewers know acting from reality. This was a serious show that saved the lives of hundreds of dogs. Mission accomplished. But this is not the end … its just the beginning.” Article continues below advertisement

When Lucky Dog premiered in 2013, viewers quickly fell in love with host Brandon McMillan, who rescued “unadoptable” dogs from animals shelters across the U.S. The dog trainer then took the canines to his training facility, the Lucky Dog Ranch, where he tackled the daunting task of transforming the scared, unloved animals into the perfect companions. Its basically every dog lovers dream.
Loyal fans of Lucky Dog were in for surprise when Season 8 debuted on Jan. 2, 2021. Thats because Brandon was nowhere to be found. Instead, two new hosts — a husband and wife team, Eric Wiese and Rashi Khanna Wiese — were featured on the Emmy-award-winning series.
“7 years ago I was approached by a production company that wanted to showcase my passion for saving dogs and training them for a purpose,” he captioned an Instagram photo of himself and a dog named Apollo, who started it all. “At the time I happened to be training Apollo. They were instantly sold on what I did and we began filming a couple months later. We had the best times.” Article continues below advertisement
