90 Day Fiance: Paul’s Family and Friends Refused To Pick Him Up at Airport

90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days star Paul Staehle recently shared a harrowing story of his trip home from Brazil. He traveled with his dogs from Sao Paulo to the US and the problems were never-ending.

Paul had three connecting flights and a 14-hour layover. His fiasco included his dogs breaking out of their kennels in Miami as they went through the security check.

Paul’s newest job is that of a K-9 handler. While he doesn’t work for law enforcement, he does, however, work as a dog handler for a company that trains canines for this kind of work. He is doing this in the US with a company and started this new job during 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days.

90 Day Fiance: Red Eye for Paul Staehle

Paul Staehle writes, that he had to book a flight on an aircraft big enough to carry a series 500 kennel. According to the Pet Kennel charts, a 500 series is an extra-large crate for travel. It is the second largest crate made behind the one sold as “huge.”

After wrapping 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, it looks like Paul and his pets took a very late flight. That can frazzle anyone’s nerves. Couple that with the worry of traveling with animals. It sure didn’t sound like a leisurely trip.  Paul had a long layover in Miami where he said his dogs broke out.

Once the four-legged friends were secured and Paul waited out the layover, they were back on a flight to Chicago. This was the closest airport to his home in Louisville, where he was able to fly the dogs due to their large kennel size.

Paul continues on with this travel saga by explaining how once at the airport, he couldn’t leave to go rent a car. He then said his friends and family wouldn’t even take money to come and get him.

90 Day Fiance – One Good Uber Driver

His last resort was Uber and the first driver that he contacted canceled the ride on him. Then the second driver showed up with one steadfast rule about the animals. The guy wanted the canines to be able to get out of the crates while in the car. He must have been a dog-lover and Paul said the dogs loved the car’s nice seats.

Paul was having a tough time with money, which was his original reason for leaving Brazil. This was seen during a scene from the TLC reality show. He came back to the states to get a job. Paul didn’t have a visa that allowed him to work in Brazil. So he took his dogs back home to the US with him.

Despite running out of money, which he said on the show, it cost him $760 for the Uber ride from Chicago to Louisville. Apparently, one good thing came out of this after he paid the absurd amount for a glorified cab ride. His German Shepherds were comfortable on the leather seats.

Paul’s story didn’t end there, although it did get better. The kindly driver even stopped at a dog park so the fur babies could do their business. It sounds as if this guy impressed Paul after all he’d been through on this grueling journey. Paul has had a rough time since completing the latest season of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days.

Some folks online questioned Paul’s decisions during this trip, like a fan who asked why Paul didn’t just take the Uber to a car rental place. He could have rented a car for much less than an almost $800 Uber. Whatever his reason, it sounded like Paul did not have an easy time making it home.

Paul didn’t say why he couldn’t get any family members or friends to come to get him at the airport even though he offered them money. Maybe it was the distance or maybe they just didn’t want to put his big dogs in their car.

Soaps are an infatuation of mine and reality TV lets me be that fly on the wall when it comes to witnessing all types of behavior, as it never amazes me what people will say and do with the cameras rolling.
