Abeygail Barrett, believed to be a relative, posted on Facebook that Ms Ladlow had found the dog “in a garden,” according to The Sun.
She posted: “ Her previous dog was a pit bull who died of cancer, so she rescued this dog after finding him in a garden where he had been on and off for four years.
Dogs are sometimes rescued with good intentions, but their past can make them tragically unpredictable. ”

‘There were ambulances and police cars. I thought they were looking for a person, then I heard about the dog and I thought they must have been looking for it.
My daughter called on the phone and said that a young woman had been bitten by a dog.
“ She is the director of a cafe where many policemen go and they found out that the woman was in bed when the dog bit her arm.
I don’t know how she died, but it could have been from her injuries. Last night I could see about eight relatives appear at the house.
‘It’s a big surprise, I think most of the people here had no idea what had happened.
‘It is awful. What a pity. It’s a shame for her and the dog. I love dogs, but have never seen that one.
One woman, who did not want to be named, said: ‘It’s shocking, absolutely shocking.
“I recently moved here and I don’t know her or her family. There was never any problem there, and I never saw the dog.
‘There were a lot of policemen and an ambulance when I came back from the shops. Then I found out when my friend sent me the news this morning.
“It’s terrible and it must have been a horrible way to die.”

‘I thought’ no way ‘because she felt completely surreal. It’s the kind of thing that only happens in movies.
‘I still can’t understand how a pet can become like this. I saw the dog being taken away, and from what I know it looked good.
“I had never seen it before and heard from a neighbor who only walked at certain times. He used to push his own dog away from him because he thought he was violent.
“ I saw on the news that he was a Staffie, but to be one he was more like a Bull Mastiff. I don’t know the woman at all, just that she was 25 years old.
