In the midst of an eviction in a Nashville, Tennessee, apartment, an emaciated puppy, so thin that he was nothing more than skin and bones, was found. According to WKRN News, the six-month-old mixed breed puppy, dubbed Nugget, was found on February 27 – judging by his dismal condition, he had apparently been on his own for quite some time.

In fact, the starving puppy had apparently resorted to trying to eat was left inside of the apartment in an effort to survive.  Lauren Bluestone, director for Metro Animal Care and Control (MACC), stated: “It appeared that he was starting to eat the furniture. He may not have eaten for weeks and was consuming pieces of carpet and a mattress to survive.”

Nugget is now safe with the animal control agency – in the short time that he has been receiving care, he has gone from a scant 18 pounds to almost 25 pounds. The person believed to have abandoned the puppy is 20-year-old Quincy Taylor – the authorities are hoping to locate Taylor and question him about the situation.

Accused of abandoning puppy

Anyone interested in adopting little Nugget should call MACC at (615) 862-7928.

    Throw this scum in the garbage and never let him see the light of day. He is a menace to society and would probably discard/abandon a family member too. Pray this pup makes it but his owner rots in hell.

    Yup. I knew what he looked like even before I saw his photo. Was he raised by reptiles? No conscience, no character, no accurate empathy for others. I’d love to see him serve time in jail, at hard labor, with pieces of carpeting and a mattress for food.

    He’ll just deny it. He was the last one in the apartment , it’s his dog Tack his hide to the wall Leave him without food or water for a couple months. No loss if he dies. More clean air for the ones with a conscience.

    WHY “HOPE” to find this useless waste of human life? He will only deny the poor baby is his!! Put an APB out, if that was his apartment, it was his dog it was trying to kill. The poor baby didn’t get in there by himself!

    I hope they find this low life asshole and he is put somewhere without food or water and he eats carpet and furniture to try to survive. Hope he has no peace in his black heart. Soul and mind with nightmares fo r the rest of his pathetic life.

    What is this ‘hoping to find’ this hunk of maggot puke, Quincy Taylor? What is he Houdini? Step up Nashville, make a concerted effort and find this bastard – he left this little puppy to die with no concern whatsoever. Don’t bother to prosecute him, with the lousy judicial system for animal abusers, little to nothing will happen – I propose he be hogtied and taken into the deep woods and left – he should be treated just like he treated Nugget, with NO MERCY!!

    I once had to go into an apartment in my complex to rescue to skin and bone dogs. No excuse for this kind of behavior. Sad hope the dog can survive and finds a loving furever home
