“Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans and her husband, David Eason, may be heading toward divorce after an incident involving her dog this week.
Jenelle confirmed to Us Weekly that her husband shot and killed her beloved French bulldog, Nugget, for biting their 2-year-old daughter, Ensley. The reality star said:
“David killed my dog Nugget because he snapped at my 2-year-old, Ensley. He doesn’t put up with that and those are his beliefs. He just took her and shot her in the woods … about two acres away from the house.”
David, who has been outspoken about keeping guns in his home, posted a video of the bite occurring to Instagram.
He said that he was protecting his family by shooting the dog:
I dont give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face… whether it be your dog or mine, a dog is a dog and I dont put up with that s**t at all. I’m all about protecting my family, it is my lifes mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me. You can hate me all you want but this isnt the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The only person that can judge weather or not a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.
Jenelle said she was “shocked and upset” over the death of her dog. In an Instagram post remembering the dog, she wrote that she was “crying everyday.”

Nugget… I’m crying everyday. I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless. You were my side kick and knew the moment I felt bad and would cuddle with me. You still had a lot to learn and a lot to grow from your lessons. Everyday I wake up you’re not here, when I come home you’re not here, when I go to bed… you’re not here. You’re gone forever and there’s no coming back. #Heartbroken #Distraught ???
Now, the mom of three said she’s considering a divorce from her husband. She told Us Weekly:
“At this time, we are dealing with this rough situation. I want to focus on what’s best for me and my kids. (Divorce is) in thoughts, but nothing is finalized.”
“I’m too hurt and upset at the fact he did that. It’s taking time to get over this whole situation, and it’s making me feel he’s very cruel and doesn’t have a heart on many ends.”
Police went to the couple’s home on April 30 in response to the dog’s death, but no charges have been pressed against David, USA Today reports. The complaint was sent to the local animal control.
As of now, Jenelle said she and her husband are “not on talking terms.”
