On Tuesday, a 58-year-old woman in Nashville, Tennessee, was arrested on an animal cruelty charge after she brought a severely malnourished dog to a veterinarian to be put down, reported the Tennessean. The dog’s owner, identified as Regina Dillard, had taken her skeletal dog to be put down on December 4 – Dillard claimed that the four-year-old pit bull was suffering from a skin condition.
Dr. Yvette Pennington, at the Animal House Veterinary hospital, reached out to the authorities to report her suspicions that the dog had simply been neglected to the brink of death.
According to Big Fluffy Dog Rescue, which is trying to bring attention to this cruelty case, the dog who was recently euthanized is not the first malnourished dog that Dillard has taken to a veterinarian to be put down, On December 9, the rescue agency wrote, “Then I found out this this is the SECOND dog they brought to the vet to be euthanized in this condition.”
Investigators found another dog at Dillard’s residence – the dog was said to be in good condition and was left at the home.
