Police say a Lakewood resident was exiting her car with her two dogs. Both of the dogs, a male Mastiff and female Rottweiler, were leashed.
A North Royalton resident was walking by with her Pomeranian, which was also leashed, when the Mastiff grabbed the Pomeranian. The Mastiff shook and killed the Pomeranian.
The Rottweiler was not involved in the attack.
