Earlier this week, Eagles' Bryce Brown had a reunion with his pitbull Eilis and her seven puppies. On May 21, the dogs were seized in Wisconsin as part of an investigation over a potential dog fighting operation after the owner of a place called Northland Pits, where Brown sent them in February to be bred, was arrested and charged with mistreating animals and running a breeding kennel without a license. 

Brown claims that he didn't know of the suspected dog fighting nature and simply sent his dogs over there because he knew little about birthing and caring for nursing puppies. While it is likely that Brown had no part in any illegal activity, investigation is still taking place.
