Teen Mom Jenelle Evans investigated for getting new puppy after husband David killed dog- but animal control CLEARS her – The Sun
TEEN Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans was investigated by her local North Carolina animal control after furious fans called in to complain about her new pup, The Sun can exclusively report.
The new addition to her family comes just months after her on-again husband, David Eason, admitted to killing their French Bulldog, Nugget.
A spokesperson for the Columbus County Animal Control told The Sun: "We got a call about the new animal two weeks ago."
"We went to check it out as a courtesy, and everything was up to snuff."
As The Sun previously reported, Teen Mom fans said they were contacting animal control after Jenelle announced she got the new dog.
Jenelle, 28, introduced her new pooch Rosey on social media on Wednesday.
The former reality star reconciled with her husband David after splitting from him in October and moving to Nashville with their daughter Ensley, 3, and her son Kaiser, 5, from a previous relationship.
Fans were outraged over the new addition, as David, 31, admitted to shooting and killing Nugget in April 2019 for nipping at their daughter Ensley.
The concerned followers reached out to animal control and organizations to “save” the dog.
One fan said via Teen Mom Shaderoom: “I’ve been calling animal control in Columbus County all day! This is crazy for Jenelle to have another dog! I will call until they block my number!
“The dog belongs in the shelter before a life with Jenelle!”
A follower commented on the post: “What’s the number? I’ll call also.”
Followers also reached out to The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals over Twitter.
One user wrote: “@ASPCA this woman’s husband shot and murdered their last dog and now they have a new one, should be a ban on people like this owning pets.”
A second tweeted: “@ASPCA someone please please help this dog!!”
A third wrote: “Some people should not be owning dogs or any type of pets @ASPCA #dogkillers.”
The ASPCA has not responded to The Sun’s request for comment.
Jenelle, who has been back in the North Carolina home she once shared with David in recent weeks, was spotted buying a dog bed with her husband and their kids on Tuesday.
Jenelle, who is also mom to son Jace, 10, was fired from Teen Mom 2 in May when David shot Nugget.
When Jenelle left in October, she filed for a protective order against him, citing the dog shooting incident.
Days after dropping the order in January, the two were spotted together walking through Nashville.
Although Jenelle insisted they are just co-parenting their daughter, they were spotted at a Nashville bar again weeks later and were spotted with their wedding rings back on.
Jenelle even moved back into their North Carolina home, although a source told The Sun she is keeping her Nashville apartment.
The Sun exclusively reported the couple is back together earlier this month.
In an interview with E! News, Jenelle said David has “a lot to prove.”
She continued: “We are going to consider counseling.”
