This turn events is shocking because Jenelle had earlier said she heard a gun shot and believed that Eason had killed their dog outside their North Carolina home.
And David even admitted in a video that the he had killed the canine because it was nipping at their daughter.
Eason posted an Instagram video on May 1 of the bulldog snapping at the couple’s two-year-old daughter, Ensley.
‘I dont give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face,’ he captioned the clip.

‘Whether it be your dog or mine, a dog is a dog and I dont put up with that s—t at all. I’m all about protecting my family, it is my lifes mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me.’
He continued, ‘You can hate me all you want but this isnt the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The only person that can judge weather or not a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.’
Jenelle also seemed heartbroken as she wrote, ‘Nugget… I’m crying everyday. I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless,” she captioned an Instagram selfie on Wednesday. “You were my side kick and knew the moment I felt bad and would cuddle with me. You still had a lot to learn and a lot to grow from your lessons. Everyday I wake up you’re not here, when I come home you’re not here, when I go to bed… you’re not here. You’re gone forever and there’s no coming back. #Heartbroken #Distraught.’

But as the investigation progressed, things became murky.
Jenelle said it was all made up for pr and she wanted the incident to ‘go away.’
She also changed her story saying she never heard a shotgun go off.
Adding to the strangeness of this case, the dog’s dead body was never found and there was no sign of blood and any remains of the dog at the home.
It still has not been revealed where the dog is. If the canine is not dead, then he must have been given away or the couple are hiding him at their home.
TMZ’s source said, ‘Cops claim they did a thorough search of the property and never found a weapon nor any blood or evidence of an animal killing. Combine that with Evans saying she made the whole thing up … and investigation wrapped.’
The incident caused Child Protective Services to investigate Jenelle and she temporarily lost custody of all three of her children.
Jenelle, 27, shares Ensley with husband David Eason, 30, whose killing of the family pet dog in May prompted the removal of the toddler and her half-brother from their home
But on Wednesday the kids were returned after a weeks-long legal battle.
A judge in North Carolina ruled that her son Kaiser, four, and daughter Ensley should be returned to their mother, TMZ reported.
‘Crying in tears of joy,’ Jenelle tweeted after the custody case was dismissed.
Ensley had been living with Jenelle’s mom Barbara Evans, who has permanent custody of her eldest son Jace, nine.
Kaiser was with his father Nathan Griffiths.
According to TMZ, Griffiths must return the boy to Jenelle by 10 a.m. Thursday.
RadarOnline reported that the judge had ‘dismissed’ the case after testimony wrapped.
Leaving court, Jenelle told the outlet that she is ‘very happy’ with the way things turned out.

A judge in North Carolina had ruled on May 28 that the Teen Mom 2 star had ‘failed to protect the children while they were in her care’ after Eason killed the family’s dog, documenting it on video.
After the small dog appeared to nip at Ensley’s face after she tried to kiss it, The Blast reported that Eason ‘grabbed the dog by the throat and slammed it on the ground’ before throwing the helpless animal into the kitchen table.
He then threw the dog’s body out of the door before grabbing a pistol and shotgun and shooting it to death, returning to the home ‘covered in blood.’
Child Protective Services began a probe of Eason and Evans following the dog’s death, according to The Blast, and sources told RadarOnline that ‘CPS described the state of the home as horrific,’ as ‘it was filthy, and there were holes in all of the walls.’
Emergency service records revealed that authorities were called to their home 25 times in the last year.
The records revealed that nearly one third of the calls were welfare check requests and six calls were made by someone inside the house.
The children were removed from the home following Eason’s brutal killing of French Bulldog Nugget in early May, which he documented on video
Evans was subsequently let go by MTV following Eason’s killing of Nugget.
In a statement, the network said: ‘We have stopped filming with Jenelle … as of April 6, 2019, and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season,’ noting that they also ‘ended [their] relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018.’
The network had already stopped showing Eason on the reality show after he went on a homophobic rant, referring to gay and transgender people as ‘abominations’, and arguing about gun laws with a user on Twitter.
Just this Tuesday, Jenelle spoke out about an incident which led to her and Eason calling 9-1-1 on her mother.
‘David and I were on FaceTime with Jace when we heard my mom say to Ensley, ‘Come here, I have to take a shower.’ Then she took Ensley in the other room, and we immediately heard her screaming and crying,’ she told UsWeekly.
‘We asked Jace what was going on, and he said my mom locked Ensley in the bedroom so she can take a shower,’ Jenelle continued. ‘We told Jace to get the door open, and when he couldn’t get the door open, we called 911 for help because all we could hear was Ensley screaming.’
TMZ posted audio of the call to emergency services that was made by Eason.
He is heard telling the dispatcher: ‘My mother-in-law has locked my 2-year-old child in the bedroom so that she could take a shower, and now she can’t get the door open, and my child is freaking out. She’s been screaming on the phone for the past five to 10 minutes.’
During the call Eason asked whether child protective services could be notified and was told he could do that when another officer followed up with him.
Jenelle and Eason wed in 20017. MTV ended its relationship with Eason in February 2018 and following the shooting of the dog, also dropped Jenelle from the upcoming Teen Mom season
