Dog-Eat-Dog Victim Had a Future in Modeling ...

8/31/2010 10:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger -- the 2-year-old Maltese allegedly killed by Sam Ronson's bulldog yesterday -- wasn't just some mangy mutt ... she had a career going for herself as a professional doggy model.

Just last month, Tiger -- 14-years old in dog years -- hit the runway for the "Pattern for Paws" charity dog fashion show in West Hollywood ... but it also appears she hit the bottle.

Tiger, seen above next to a glass of chardonnay sauvignon blanc, had her vices like any up and coming model ... but she also had spirit ... a spirit that was silenced far too soon due to unnecessary dog-on-dog violence.

Last night, Sam Ronson -- whose doggy Cadillac is accused of carrying out the alleged murder -- tweeted the following message, "I feel incredibly sad and wish I could offer more than condolences, unfortunately there are no words to describe how sorry I am."

There IS something she can do. She can present a standing offer to buy the owner a new dog now, or anytime in the future that the owner feels ready to have a new dog. They may not feel ready now, but the offer should remain in place. You can never replace your pet, but a new one will help ease the loss.

I don't like those froofy white dogs. Elizabeth Taylor has one, I think Kathie Lee used to have one. ick. It's not a dog, it's a stuffed animal with breath.

well, that one hasn't breath any more, but...just sayin

The dog was only 2. That's 14 years old in human years.

TMZ,I love you, but this is a "Leave it Alone" story. This occurance brings genuine pain to both sides whether one likes these people or not. Have some human compassion for the emotions of the parties involved. I am sure neither one of them are making jokes about what they are feeling now. This is like making fun of Jessica Simpson over losing her Daisy to a coyote while she witnessed it. There is NOTHING funny about this.

Tiger was an adorable dog! I feel bad for the owners.
This never should have happened! People need to be responsible pet owners! If a dog's behavior is bad it is because the owner never took the time or effort to train him!

#87 that's sounds stupied and racist!
whata NAZI you are only attack killer dogs are dogs, yes!

'The Jew,' according to Hitler, concerns himself only with the 'purely material realm.' The 'thinking and striving' of all Jews ('and the feelings that go along with it') exclusively center on the most base of motivations, the pursuit of 'money and power,' with no consideration for 'moral and spiritual' values of any kind.

SO HERE IS ONE REASON HITLER WANTED TO GET RID OF JEWS.

however you sound like a psychopath=no feelings.

i have a froufrou dog..Lucky we're in the u.s.a. so i could feed you to hungry dogs. ahaha =)

heeeeeeee heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

There is nothing funny about this story & it would not be any better if it was "JUST some mangy mutt". Pedigree doesn't make animals or people more loved. For many of us, our animals are our family & frequently loved more than mean humans.

This is karma for Ronson making fun of Paris Hilton in a tweet.
Serves you right you moron. Yes, I smell a big lawsuit. If it were my little dog that was killed, I'd be happy to sue her.

I agree with #15. Really don't see the humor in a poor dog being attacked and killed. TMZ is a little insensitive, I'd say. Not shocking.

They are both in the wrong.Her dog shouldn't have been left alone,and the maltese shouldn't have been around without a leash.Animals are animals,in nature it happens everyday that dogs kill each other.As usual,dogs pay the price for the irresponsability of their owners.

Some people have no class. A dog being attacked and killed by another dog is not a joke. The TMZ employee responsable for this insenstive article would not find it funny if it had been their dog who who had been killed because of Sam Ronson's irresponsibility and failure to control her dog. Same with the posters who think it's not big deal because it's not a person and things like this happens everyday. Wait until you watch your pet get viciously attacked and killed by another pet owner's dog.

[why is everyone so upset about a dog? so it died. its not a person move on]

The dog may not have been a person but it was still a living creature. Besides dogs who attack other dogs are dangerious not only to other animals but also to humans. It's likely only a matter of time before Ronson's dog attacks a human.
