When the RSPCA found Florence she was pregnant and alone in a cage, suffering from hypothermia and terrible facial injuries.

As a result of her injuries, Florence has paralysis in her left upper eyelid but this doesn’t hold her back and now the RSPCA are hoping to find her a new, loving home.

A spokesman for the RSPCA said: “Despite her unlucky start, she is a friendly, cheeky girl who is full of fun and likes to run around our field chasing toys.

“Florence can be a little OTT and stubborn at times so she would benefit from an owner who would be willing to meet her training needs.”

It is not known how old the Olde Tyme bulldog is due to the way the RSPCA found her. However, the charity have her down as being an adult dog.
