Police were called to a house in south London on Tuesday evening where a woman was found dead with multiple injuries.
They seized five dogs including two Bordeaux bulldogs, two American bulldogs and a mongrel from the property.
None of the animals are banned breeds, Scotland Yard said, and no arrests have been made.
