Eagle in my back yard

We have a new puppy, a peekichin which is a small dog and he is only 4 months old. I took him out back earlier and had him on a dog cable. He managed to wrap around something and when I brought him in he was mad as heck and kept nipping at my ankles. Later I took him out from and I went in to make coffee. Worried someone would steal him I quick went out to get him but he wanted to stay out so I took him around back again and there was a Bald Eagle sitting in the tree over where I tie him up! Then the Eagle comes back circling around. I’m not sure if he wanted the puppy or one of the Squirrels out back, but I think I better not leave him attended for awhile. I have been seeing more and more Eagles in the country away from the rivers. So far no cats missing but I wouldn’t be surprised of some did disappear.
