Shelley's needs a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Known background: Shelley was tied to a flat door handle petrified to be approached. She had to be catch poled. Dog warden identified whose had been her owner, they have had lots of dealing with the police and is illegally breeding; domestic abuse; drugs and criminal dealings. Shelley will have definitely been abused and has been heavily bred from in past. We stepped forwards to offer a Rescue place and save Shelley's life. We will have to rehabilitate her and gently build trust. We debated whether we had the means in terms of circumstance and financial ability to support her longterm but we all agreed she was owed this, with us as replenishing her faith in human nature and we were her only chance. Shelley was in foster but is now in boarding kennels nr Guildford

Shelley's Thread below: Watch progress through our Rescue
Original Referral:
Hi Lynne, As discussed this is Shelley the American Bulldog in police kennels. She was found tied to a door handle of a flat. Was very nervous aggressive and had to be poled sadly to be moved. She went to the police kennels as better suited for her where she has settled down but they agreed she is still nervous and has clearly been abused.

I know who the owner is although he is currently AWOL (Absent without leave) and not known where currently living. He is well known to me from over the years however for animal welfare, breeding, drugs and severe domestic violence to his family. Not nice individual and I can say with all certainty that it is likely to have beaten her etc. She has also been bred from.

The police have said she's not aggressive as such but will need lots of rehabilitation due to her abandonment fears.

Some pics enclosed, I only have until FRIDAY 14th August before she will be PTS - if it was a case of being a couple of days for a guaranteed space then may be able to argue the point but she isn't in my care so its not my budget sadly. Ax Dog warden


We have been in heavy negotiation since and now have the transport organisaed and the dog warden has raised funds to pay for extra kennelling days saving her life.

So very pleased this girly is going straight to foster. Humans have failed her for her whole life - let's hope we can all restore her faith in us. Thank you so much montyjack2. Xxx

Well Shelley has arrived, she is quite a bit stressed at the moment, so just letting her roam around and get used to everything. She enjoyed having a good roll on the grass x Not much else to say, will post again once I get to know her better x

Shelley is starting to relax and I can now see the dog that was hidden inside, she is a big wimp and can jump at sudden noises or leaves blowing etc (making me jump lol) but I dont make a fuss about it, she will soon gain confidence as each day goes by. She is clean in the house, no mishaps, does not pull on the lead. She has not met many dogs, but we did get bombarded by two off lead springers and she was fine just sniffed and quite happy to be sniffed.

My friend Lee came to meet her and he fell in love ( he does with all of them lol), so they had a play in the garden and she loved it, she was so happy x x
