Betti – Now Adopted!


We are absolutely over the moon to announce that after 5 months in foster our beautiful Betti has made her way home.

Betti was collected yesterday by Marie and Robert who instantly fell in love with her.

In true Betti style she has wasted no time settling in, she had a run around the garden and promptly plonked herself in bed and went to sleep.

We would like to say a big thank you to Helen and her family for loving Betti and preparing her for her forever family.

She really came out of her shell while she was with you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We would also like to thank Sue, Gayle and Dawn for being amazing fosters and fairy god mother to Betti.

She really did have a lot of people loving and caring for her. You have all been amazing.

So would you all please join us in congratulating Marie, Robert and their son Leaun on their beautiful new girl, we hope you have many happy years together.

To Betti, enjoy your happy ever after sweetheart, you truly deserve it!

Dogs name:



5years old.

Current location:

West Bletchley, Milton Keynes 



Yes, dog savvy children.







Betti is a sweet old soul, who cherishes her humans.

Betti prefers a quiet life at her human’s side, keeping them company on their daily activities.


Betti can be reserved for a bulldog, but she takes no time to come out of her shell and reveal her playful side.

Betti will shower you with affection from the moment you meet her.

Betti needs her humans to herself, but she more than makes up for that with her love for you.


Betti needs a calm home environment preferably with someone home the majority of the day.

Betti will love children to fuss over and get attention from, but any young children in the home must be supervised, as she is a big girl and has the potential to knock children over.

Children must understand that bulldogs need time to settle in and have space to rest peacefully and uninterrupted.


Betti loves her walks since having BOAS surgery, and even a play on the field with a ball.

Betti ignores other dogs whilst out, but does not like being approached my little dogs, and may react to dogs who react towards her.

Betti is still healing so having shorter walks but building on her stamina and increasing the time she is out.

Toilet trained:

Betti is a good girl.

Can be left:

Betti will settle in her bed she can be left for up to 4 hours.


Betti loves a car ride, she will settle on the backseat with seatbelt restraint.

Because of this we will accept applications of up to 4 hours of her current location.

Things to be aware of:

Betti continues to thrive after BOAS surgery, increases to her exercise will need to be done steadily.

Betti came to GBSR with terribly dry eyes, but with continued treatment of tacrolimus drops 3x daily her eyes have improved. Betti’s eyes will continue this way with continued treatment of the tacrolimus daily.

Additional information:

Betti is the type of dog that just melts your heart and makes you fall in love with her the moment you meet her. If you are looking for a best friend to keep you company on these cold winter nights, then having Santa pop Betti in your stocking will be the best Christmas gift possible.


A little of Betti’s story below,

Please welcome the beautiful Miss Betti to our GBSR family.

Betti is a terribly sad surrender, her owner loves her dearly and is heartbroken having to give her up so please no judgment.

We were contacted a little over a week ago by Betti’s owner asking us for help. The lady’s husband sadly passed away at the beginning of the year and due to poor health, herself she couldn’t give Betti the care she needs, and sadly hasn’t been able to walk her since January.

The lady had been in contact with another Bulldog charity for several months waiting for them to give her the help she so desperately needed. But after being messed about by them she reached out to us, as she could see that the condition of Betti’s eyes is deteriorating.

Betti is a 5year-old, spayed female, as you can see from the photos she is suffering from terrible dry eye. So, we will be booking her in with our eye specialist in Solihull as soon as possible, as we fear she may need Parotid transposition surgery like #Sarge did earlier this year.

Huge thank you to Liam for collecting Betti and bringing her home to Emily and your children, not forgetting Betti’s new foster fur brother, the handsome Sully who is helping her settle in. She has already enjoyed her first walk and is proving to be the sweetest girl.

When she is ready for adoption, Betti’s poster will be shared across our social media and our website.

Welcome to your GBSR family Betti, we look forward to seeing you bloom.
