Bully XL fatally stabbed in owner’s home

A saddened dog owner arrived home to the distressing sight of intruders fatally stabbing her beloved XL bully.

Marie Stephens, aged 30, recounted her discovery of Lola, the “gentle giant,” lifeless on her living room floor, the murder weapon, a knife, still lodged in her body. She had cared for the three-year-old dog for nearly a year after rescuing her.

Two individuals have been apprehended and subsequently released on bail, under suspicion of aggravated burglary in connection with the tragic incident that unfolded in Rhymney, Caerphilly county.

Bully XLs are set to be banned across the UK by the end of 2023 due to a series of dog attacks, one of which tragically claimed the life of 10-year-old Jack Lis in November 2021.

Ms. Stephens recounted leaving Lola in her apartment as she briefly stepped out. Upon her return, she observed an attic window, which she rarely used, open.

To her horror, she discovered Lola inside, covered in blood. Ms. Stephens described the scene as resembling a massacre.
