NO THEY DON’T.
They look just like the healthy parvo free pups I had handed over six days earlier on the 5TH MARCH 2015.
They were allegedly taken ill the day after this photo was taken (on the 12th March 2015) which clearly shows them outside in areas used by other dogs when they should not have been, being handled with dirty gloves and toys laying around that will have been used by other dogs.
So my dogs (1 female adult, 3 female puppies and 5 male puppies) were handed over healthy and in top condition from me and were dead within days once the “so called professionals” took them and were responsible for their care, instead of me.
When the RSPCA advertised them on their Facebook page THIS IS WHAT THEY WROTE :
RSPCA Hillingdon, Slough, Windsor, Kingston & District Branch

SPECIAL NOTICE: AMERICAN BULLDOGS
In a joint effort with Slough Borough Council, RSPCA Inspectors have stepped in to help a lady with a pair of American Bulldogs and their ELEVEN 6 month old puppies.
After breeding her dog without giving serious consideration to the issues and commitment involved, this lady was unable to find good responsible homes for the puppies, which would meet with the needs of the breed. As they grew, she became increasingly unable to cope with the demands of both parents plus 11 large and boisterous puppies living in a small kitchen, and in this ‘pack’ environment, becoming quarrelsome due to lack of exercise and proper socialisation.
The owner of the dogs was very much in need of help and the bulldog family has now been signed over into the care of the RSPCA. The 3 girls, pictured here with the Inspectors who collected them, are with our Branch and being assessed and health checked prior to seeking urgent re-homing / fostering. The other 8 puppies have been placed with other centres.
It is an undeniable fact that dog rescue kennels all over the country are inundated with bull breeds – many waiting for someone who never comes. Some spend years, if not life, in kennels. Yet still the public think it is a good idea to breed a litter. At any one time there can be over 600 bull breed puppies for sale via online advertisements alone. The only way to start to ease this shameful crisis is to promote neutering and STOP breeding. The cost to manage abandoned and unwanted bull breeds countrywide must run into millions of pounds, funded by local councils, the police and so many rescue centres. This madness must stop.
This case highlights just some of the pitfalls of ill-researched casual breeding. Despite the owner trying her best, these puppies are the ones that have suffered the poor start in life and at 6 months old have yet to gain experience of the outside world, meeting other dogs and people, vet visits or even just being lead walked. The RSPCA deal with situations like this on a regular basis. Our 3 puppies alone will cost the Branch in excess of £1,000 in day-to-day food and care, vaccinations, flea & worm treatments, micro chipping and neutering, plus any additional veterinary treatment that may be needed.
We would very strongly urge people to think and research very carefully before breeding any dog and consider whether the reasons for doing it are both decent and responsible. In particular, consider the financial commitment to breeding and raising healthy well-adjusted puppies. In addition to routine veterinary costs, complications with pregnancy for example, leading to the need for caesarean delivery could in itself cost more than £1,000. Most responsible breeders will tell you that the sale of puppies, rarely covers all the costs involved in breeding, raising and homing them. Just as importantly, before breeding consider whether you have reliable and caring homes you would be happy to entrust the welfare and future happiness of the puppies to. Puppies take a great deal of time, care and socialisation at an early age to prepare them to become happy, sociable family members, who will be welcomed by society. If you don’t have the money, time and good homes waiting for puppies – please don’t breed! At the end of the day it’s always the animals that pay the highest price when things go wrong.
I DON’T DO FACEBOOK ANYMORE (and will be deleting it again as soon as the dog issue has been dealt with as I want nothing to do with Facebook as it is a criminals paradise) BUT WAS URGED BY A FRIEND WHO HAD SEEN THE LIES THEY HAD WRITTEN ABOUT ME AND MY DOG’S ON THEIR PAGE TO VISIT THEIR RSPCA PAGE TO RESPOND TO THEIR WRITE UP WITH THE CORRECT FACTS AND CORRECT DOG NUMBER’S AS THEY DIDN’T EVEN GET THAT RIGHT.
HERE IS MY RESPONSE TO THEM :
Nicola Jenkins : Quite sad to read this post, as it does not give the full facts.
As I was the owner of these 3 lovely, healthy and adorable American Bulldogs (now dead) I will clarify.
On August 25th 2014, Lucy, an American Bulldog (who I had taken in for my son from being a garden dog on a chain whose owners were moving and leaving her) gave birth to puppie’s.
We were never 100% sure if they were my boys (an AB) or whether she was pregnant on arrival at mine.
When Lucy gave birth it was my intention to rehome the puppie’s at 12/16 weeks, however a group of unsavoury men had set their sights on my babie’s for dog fighting.
Hence they could not be advertised for sale online or giving away to good doggy peeps.
At the same time I had a serious fall (I am disabled and terminally ill) and was out of action for some 6/8 weeks which made doing home checks impossible for me.
Therefore I could not and did not let them go.
So “I” asked the RSPCA and Slough Borough Council for assistance with rehoming.
I suggested this was done direct from my home (where the dog’s had run of the house not just a kitchen as well they know) and was willing for all puppie’s and mum to remain in my house, until suitable homes were found.
On March 5th 2015 at 9.15 am I handed over Lilly, Spot and Kizzy to the RSPCA (3 pups only…no other dogs).
They were all wormed and flead to date and their next worm and flea treatments provided.
Along with £80 to cover their vaccinations and 17kg of dog food.
All collars and leads etc.
They never had their vaccinations or food I supplied as they were killed on MARCH 16TH 2015.
As after these healthy pictures were taken on the 11TH MARCH they got ill.
On March 5th 2015 at 9.15 am I handed over Lucy (mum), Smudge, Sox, Oscar, Maxwell, Alfie and Benson to Slough Borough Council.
They were all wormed and flead to date and their next doses offered but refused and all collars, leads and harnesses.
I did not give them vaccination money for various reasons.
So that was one healthy female adult dog (NO MALE ADULT DOG WAS EVER HANDED OVER TO THE COUNCIL OR RSPCA) and nine healthy puppies handed over (NOT 11).
And they were all allegedly taken ill a week “AFTER” leaving me all healthy and all dead in a matter of days.
The only dog’s alive, healthy and well out of the entire beautiful bulldog family now, are the two puppie’s I kept.
THEY ARE FINE.
My biggest regret…entrusting my beautiful babies TO OTHERS!
You can read more about it all on my blog.
NB. THE WOMAN ABOVE IN THIS PHOTO IS BECKY TIMBERLAKE. THE CON ARTIST WHO HAD A WEDDING TO PAY FOR AND WAS WILLING TO TAKE PART IN THE KILLINGS OF THESE DOG’S TO PAY FOR IT!
My puppie’s most certainly did not cost the RSPCA £1000 a day to keep in kennels either.
Puppie’s and mum were supplied with everything right down to their food, vaccination costs, wormers, flea treatments and everything.
THEY NEVER EVEN HAD THE VACCINATIONS I PAID FOR.
Oh and the only veterinary costs involved were due to those who were meant to be caring for the dog’s allowing them to become ill…costs they wouldn’t of had, if the dog’s had been looked after properly.
HOW I LOOKED AFTER THEM.
BUT HEY DON’T LET THE TRUTH GET IN THE WAY OF FRAUDULENTLY BEGGING CASH FOR DONATIONS OFF THE UNSUSPECTING MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC ONLINE.
FROM TODAYS DATE I NO LONGER SUPPORT THE RSPCA AND THEY WILL NEVER GET ANOTHER DONATION OFF ME FOR AS LONG AS I LIVE.
OR WHEN I DIE.
NOR WILL I NOW BE USING THEIR HOME FOR LIFE SCHEME AFTER MY DEATH AS ORIGINALLY PLANNED.
Nor will they now be carrying out my female puppy’s spading operation next week…as I’m too scared they won’t look after her properly and she might die whilst in their care too.
I am now booking it with another vet, even though I have to pay more.
Money does not matter where my babie’s are concerned.
They have the best of everything!
PERSONALLY I FEEL ALL THESE DEAD DOG’S SHOULD BE A POLICE ISSUE.
BECAUSE DAVID STRIDE WHO TOOK THE MUM AND BOY’S IS A DISGRUNTLED EX-COPPER.
AND THE TWO RSPCA OFFICIALS WHO TOOK THE GIRL’S ARE BASED IN WEST SUSSEX, HOME OF THE CLOSED DOWN INSURERS…NOT MY LOCAL BRANCH I USE IN UXBRIDGE AND WHO KNOW ME AND MY DOG’S.
