Yung Joc is denying claims from a dog breeder that he’s an irresponsible dog owner who lost his pit bulls soon after getting them … he says the dogs managed to chew through their enclosures.
The “It’s Goin’ Down” rapper tells TMZ … he did his part to keep the dogs contained on his property, with kennels and two chain-link fences, but he was surprised they were still able to bite their way out.
Yung Joc says he paid over $20,000 for the pit bulls, Nispey and Bruiser, back in April from a dog breeder in Los Angeles … but after they escaped, the dog breeder blamed the rapper and offered a $5k reward for info on their whereabouts.
While the dog breeder, Andre of Big Gemini Kennels, claims Yung Joc was being irresponsible and might be hiding something … Joc tells us he’s been transparent with authorities, even sharing the video of their escape.
Yung Joc is firing back about accusations he was in over his head … he says he thought there was no way the dogs could get past not just one, but two fences … and he says it wasn’t a case of being cheap.
YJ has a history with dog incidents … including one from 2010 where his dogs got out and attacked a neighbor’s pup. With that incident he told us that the shock collars malfunctioned, he took care of his neighbor, paid fines, got the dogs back and took full responsibility.
