How old is your dog?
Agree with others above - she and you got lucky about the bulldog, most wouldn't have done what they did.
Abbey must be extremely well trained to be able to be recalled while in the "heat of battle". From experience I can tell you that it takes a lot of training (at least it did for my full grown adult male GSD) to have a dog be able to do that!
Congrats on her obedience!
