According to an article by Alicia Lutes on Hollywood.com, "It turns out that Brigitte--whose lack of participation was noticeable in the lawsuit against the network earlier this month--did not have a formal contract in place with the network. In fact, she was leased to the show via Hollywood animal agency Good Dog Animals, who decided (for undisclosed reasons) that they no longer wanted to work with Brigitte, and hired Beatrice. ABC then decided to lease Beatrice for the role instead."
Sadly, there were no reported difficulties working with former pooch, Brigitte, but never-the-less she has been replaced by new bulldog, Beatrice. With no written contract, Brigitte's owner doesn't have much control over the decision. Poor pup.
