SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A Salem family is mourning the loss of their pet after they say it was mauled to death by another dog in their neighborhood.

The Statesman Journal reports (https://stjr.nl/2p8qQa4) Amanda Reyna says her 9-year-old Chihuahua named Fifi was protecting her 5-year-old son from the other dog when it was attacked. Fifi was bit several times.

The other dog’s owner eventually came out and broke up the fight but it was too late.

Reyna took Fifi to a veterinary clinic and found out the dog had blood in its lungs.

She said the other dog’s owners paid $120 for Fifi’s euthanization.

Reyna said she later contacted animal control about the other dog, which had been spotted wandering the neighborhood.

Marion County Dog Services is investigating Monday’s attack and will determine whether to take action.
