Halifax city officials have charged the owners of a dog that chased a Pomeranian into a house and killed it.
Brendan Elliott said Thursday the owners have been charged under municipal bylaws with having a dog without a licence, allowing a dog to run at large and one count of an animal attack.
Elliott says the owners are to appear in Dartmouth provincial court on Jan. 7 to enter pleas.
The three offences carry fines ranging from $100 to $5,000.
Earlier this week, Rachelle Coward said she fought with the large dog, described as an American Staffordshire terrier, when it chased her pet Pomeranian Diamond into her Dartmouth home Monday.
The big dog left the house with Diamond in its jaws, and Coward found her body in a neighbour's driveway.
