WILSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – Several puppies were rescued last week in Wilson County after a concerned citizen found them off of the side of a busy road in Lebanon.

Wilson County Animal Shelter took the seven puppies in before True Rescue brought them in to be fostered.

True Rescue said a single pup, nicknamed Niblitt, is believed to have been thrown from a car. The shelter said Niblitt has leg injuries, is covered sores, and missing fur from past neglect.

The Mt. Juliet-based shelter said Niblitt has been to the vet and is currently on medications. She is believed to be a Chihuahua mix.
