Does Faye have a dog? 

Faye has made no secret of the fact that she is a dog lover, even owning her own pooch, golden retriever Bonnie.

She previously spoke out on American XL Bully ban, adding that she had received ‘hate and lost work’ as a result. 

In a video where she hit out against the ban, the Love Islander stated that the ‘UK wants to generalise [the breed] as evil’ and that she was willing to take the hate if it meant she would save ‘innocent lives’.

She added that she could not ‘sit back and watch’ as the ban was put into place.

She penned: ‘NALA – firstly what an honour to meet such an incredible, kind soul that the UK wants to generalise as evil. It was a pleasure to be in your company from the moment I saw you to the moment I left.

‘I’m not here to take away from anyone that has been the subject of a dog attack, I’m sorry you’ve had to endure pain and heartbreak, I’m also not here saying that there is no evil in people that own this breed.

‘All I know is that most of these dogs are just like Nala preparing to have their innocent lives ended on the 31st of December because they are in rehoming centres and I can’t sit back and watch.

‘Through speaking on this subject I’ve endured hate and lost work but if I can save one dog’s life I know it will be for something.

‘All you see in the media is one small horrendous snippet and I can see why people are fearful, I’m just wanting to show you another side the true side for most of this breed. You all gave us a platform and I’ll be dammed if I’m not using it.

‘NALA is based at @rspcalittlevalleyexeter they are looking through applications and are hopeful they will find her the perfect home however due to legislation, Nala will have to go through exception based on her physical characteristics.

‘I can’t say how much this breaks my heart but I know she will have the most amazing life with someone that respects and adores her because she is the most amazing girl.’

Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, declared the ban after a flurry of violent attacks which left several people dead or injured. 

The new law will come into place on December 31, making it against the law to sell, rehome, rehome or leave any XL bully dogs stray in both England and Wales.

From February 1, 2024, it will also be against the law to own the breed in England and Wales.
