Jenelle Evans has new puppies at home, but some people aren’t happy about it.
Over the weekend, the “Teen Mom” star shared a video on her social media of a litter of 9 new pitbull puppies nursing from their mother.

Evans explained that she found the mother a few weeks ago chained up outside in the cold and took her into her home after unsuccessfully trying to find the dog’s owners.
After sharing the adorable video, though, the TV personality shared an update on her Facebook page, revealing that people have been calling the police on her for housing the dogs.
“I did not breed this dog. I did not steal this dog. I gave this dog a home and have been feeding her. Whoever left this dog chained outside being pregnant in 35 degree weather is beyond me but luckily she found us and we gave her a warm spot to sleep since then. Don’t leave your animals out in the freezing weather,” she wrote.
Speaking to E! News, Evans said, “No cops have been to my house and I doubt they will come if they are called.”
She added, “The police are 45 minutes from my house so they aren’t coming out here for rumours. They are used to that when it comes to me unfortunately.”
Evans also said the family doesn’t plan to keep most of the newborn pups.
“The kids love the puppies!” she said. “We might keep one but going to give them away to close friends of mine for free when they are ready to go. I’m only trying to help and the haters tried to start some stuff once I posted she had her puppies.”
In 2019, Evans’ husband David Eason faced serious backlash after he killed their family dog. The dog had nipped at the couple’s baby.

In the wake of the dog’s death, Evans briefly broke up with Eason and took their children away from him.
The couple have since reconciled, and earlier this year they welcomed a new puppy into their lives, along with two other dogs and a pet goat.
