ABANDONED, kept in a yard with no attention, and rescued from a garden surrounded by her dead puppies.
These are the stories of Staffordshire bull terriers Blaze, Robin and Dolly.
The tales illustrate the uncaring treatment to this breed by some owners and because of this the dogs are now at RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre, in South Mimms.
One-year-old Blaze had been tied up in a garden while his owners had moved and left him behind.

He would suit an adult home with someone who has experience of Staffordshire bull terriers, and will need a secure garden to play in.
Robin is a five-year-old, who was kept in a yard and never received the attention he needed.

A spokesman for the Packhorse Lane centre told the Welwyn & Hatfield Times: "He is a very active and bouncy boy whose boisterousness is caused by years of frustration.
"Robin will need an experienced owner who can appreciate that he has a lot to learn.
"He has never socialised with other dogs or been given any sort of opportunity to live a normal life."
Two-year-old Dolly was rescued from a garden with her litter of newborn puppies.
The spokesman added: "Half the litter had already died, having been left in the cold and wet."
Dolly has always been kept outdoors, so may need some help with housetraining. She should be fine with children aged 12 and over.
* If you can offer one of the Staffordshire bull terriers a new start in life, call the animal care home on 0300 123 0704.
You can also visit the dogs at the centre, which is open every day, except Wednesdays, from 11am until 4.15pm.
