NASHVILLE TN - A COUPLE IS FILING A LAWSUIT AGAINST THE DOG SPOT DAYCARE AFTER THEIR CHIHUAHUA WAS FATALLY MAULED BY A LARGER DOG
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A mid-state dog owner's pet was violently attacked at an east Nashville dog daycare and later died from its injuries.
Rachel and Matt Waldrop left their two Chihuahuas at The Dog Spot in East Nashville before going on vacation.
“I thought I was leaving them at a safe place. The front desk staff was polite every time we came in we never had an incident,” Rachel said.
The couple’s dogs have stayed at the east Nashville location in pre
I didn't want to ask friends to keep the dogs. I didn't want to bother anyone else with it If they're not used to them, so I said I'll board them,” she said.
On their second day in Utah, a manager called, telling the couple the one-and-a-half-year-old Chihuahua named Hall was rushed to the vet after getting into an incident with a larger dog.
“There was a lot of internal blood loss, that there were a lot of or fractured if not broken ribs, three major punctured wounds,” she said.
Rachel said the manager also told her the dogs had not been separated by size but by temperament.
The facility’s website explains how animals are supervised stating, “Although we separate dogs by size, temperament and personality, each play area has its own supervisor trained in canine behavior to help insure there are no turf wars.”
But in the Waldrop’s case, Hall died from its injuries.
“She just didn't make it so we allowed them to stop doing CPR and she died,” she said.
