But Jon's attempts to blame Kate for getting rid of the dog simply isn't fair, one source told The dogs have always been Jon's and while Kate was willing to do whatever she had to she simply can't handle them and Jon didn't make any other arrangements for them to be taken care of. He now lives in an apartment in New York City and never considered getting a place where he could keep his dogs, the source told us.

"Kate's being gracious about the situation, she's not going to blame Jon," said the source.

Earlier in the summer Jon caused an uproar when he made comments to about the dogs. "Those kids beat them up, climb on them, pull their tails, bite at them, drag them around and everything you can imagine not to do to an animal, they've done."

The Humane Society of Berks County, Pa., where the Gosselins live, received numerous complaints about the family and animal cruelty, prompting Jon to release a statement to teh HSBC.  "I would like to clarify a recent statement I made regarding my family's two German Shepherd puppies, Shoka and Nala.  The statement - if taken literally and out of context - could be misinterpreted and I'd like to set the record straight.  We understand the esponsibilities of being good dog owners.  Whenever my kids are with Shoka and Nala, everyone is carefully supervised to ensure that no one - dog or child - is injured. Shoka and Nala are loyal companions who we consider members of our family.  We would never do anything to hurt them, and treat them with the respect and love that they deserve."
