Owner: Dog Attacked, Killed in West Texas PetSmart

MIDLAND, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - A Midland dog owner is devastated after a typical trip to her local PetSmart led to the death of her beloved poodle Luna.

The owner told CBS7 News she had just brought Luna into the store for a grooming on May 12, 2017, when a mastiff attacked and killed the dog as they attempted to walk past it.

The mastiff's owner has agreed to pay for Luna's cremation costs, according to the news report, which says Luna's owner believes PetSmart "is not doing anything about it" and she wants the store to review their large dog policy.

PetSmart released the following statement to CBS7 News in light of Luna's death:

We are truly saddened by the loss of Luna as a result of this tragic accident, and we remain in continual contact with the pet parent. As a practice, we do not provide internal documents or video to third parties, and for privacy reasons, it is our policy not to disclose the names or contact information of other customers. We welcome all dogs, regardless of their size, into our stores provided they are well behaved and leashed. Our thoughts are with the pet parent during this difficult time.
