Rick Ross

Victory In Murdered Doggy

Lawsuit

7/21/2011 12:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rick Ross just scored a victory against a woman who claims the rapper's pit bulls mauled her adorable pet Yorkie to death because a judge has DISMISSED her lawsuit ... at least for now.

TMZ broke the story ... the Yorkie, named Banks, died after several pit bulls (one pictured below) escaped from Rick's Atlanta mansion back in April and tore Banks apart.

Banks' owner filed a lawsuit against Ross demanding more than $15k in damages and fees ... but today, a judge threw out the case ... saying Banks' owner failed to properly serve Ross with the suit.

Rick's manager tells TMZ, "We tried to do good business ... we paid the vet bill ... but it was an unfortunate accident that [Banks' owner] tried to capitalize off of."

Banks' owner tells TMZ ... she isn't giving up ... and vows to correct her mistake and eventually get justice for Banks.

It is hard for me to imagine that Ross takes the pictured pitbull and the other ones for a walk. I think that he owns several pitbulls just to impress other people. Furthermore, I don't think he has trained his dogs.

This little dog was probably treated like a humane and when it met a real dog growled and it was on. Pitbulls are not the only dog to go after these little dogs. Most big dogs do not like little dogs.
yeah I know your big dog likes everyone.

Breeding pit bulls should be illegal. Owning one should require the same scrutiny as legally owning a handgun.
