According to sources close to the situation, Lisa Vanderpump's Vanderpump Dog Foundation was alerted after the pup was left at the facility. Later, the shelter arranged to reunite Graham with his dad — who lost custody to Leviss — after they called off their engagement in 2021.

Insiders revealed that Kennedy and his girlfriend, Ally Lewber, have put the dog in training classes and noted how "happy" the DJ is to have Graham back in his life.

Fans rejoiced over Kennedy and Graham's reunion after watching the 31-year-old break down during Season 10 about losing his pet in the break up with his former fiancée — whose real name is Rachel. "The rightful outcome to this custody battle," one social media user wrote in the comments section.

"Rachel just gave him up??? Wow," a second person chimed in, while another added, "I'm glad the dog is being taken care of. James was so upset about Graham. Pups belong in a stable environment."

The "Topman" artist and Leviss were together for five years before announcing the end of their romance in December 2021.

"We decided we have two different goals and made the decision to call off the engagement," the former pair wrote in a joint statement at the time. "We love each other very much, but we aren't in love anymore."

TMZ first reported that Graham was dropped off at a shelter.
