Adrian Stoica and Hurricane may have just won the million dollar prize for AMERICA’S GOT TALENT, but Stoica’s plans for his beloved dog are a bit more, well, grounded.

“I will buy some extra food for her and probably buy some sheeps,” Stoica says with a laugh to Give Me My Remote in the video below. “Because she’s a border collie, she needs to herd.”

Stoica was still in disbelief over their big victory hours after it happened. “It’s just amazing,” he gushes. “We are so excited. And we are happy. But it’s so unbelievable.” 

This marked Stoica’s third time in the GOT TALENT world after making it to the 2017 semi-finals in Italy and competing in Romania’s 2022 season. But it took coming to AGT for him to win it all.

“This is the biggest stage in the world,” he says. “AGT, it’s so powerful and you see a lot of people…a lot of artists. It’s huge. It’s amazing. But now I feel like AGT is like my family.”

Next up for Stoica and Hurricane is the AGT show at Luxor Vegas. “As soon as possible, we start to work on the new act and we see what happens,” he says. “We go to Luxor—we’re ready for Las Vegas. She’s ready for Las Vegas.”

And they may be joined by some new friends. “I have a great relationship with all my dogs,” Stoica says. “So I think, yeah, maybe we can put another dog in the act [for] Hurricane—it’s very good to act with the sisters. So we can see what happens. I’m very excited to start to work as soon as possible.”

Though viewers got to see Stoica and Hurricane perform together only a handful of times, it’s clear the duo are bonded. “Hurricane loves to play with me,” he says. “So I think we have a great time together and we have fun. If you have fun with your dog, it’s easy to build some stuff. So I think the key…is just having fun and to have respect [for] each other.”

Of course, she doesn’t want to do everything. “She don’t like to stay in the same spot,” Stoica says. “She likes to run. So if you [say] just stay in the same spot, she’s not able to do it. It’s a border collie, she has a lot of energy!”
