"That was Nathan's dog before he even met Jenelle," the friend told

"He brought Mugen back from Ohio but the saddest thing was the dog seemed to get really scared when they got near Myrtle Beach. It was like he remembered being there and hated it."

MTV ran a disclaimer after the notorious Teen Mom 2 episode showed the alleged abuse, and Evans apologized for her treatment of the dog. But the friend told that the dog's time with her seemed to have lingering effects.

"In the car near Evans' old home, Mugen hid his face in the seat and wouldn't even look up," the source claimed. "It was weird. He was acting really funny."

"Jenelle hasn't seen the dog since he's been back at all," the source told
