Tori Spelling

Life-and-Death Dog Caper

Tori Spelling
is in the middle of a bizarre dog dispute that could end with her pooch getting put to death ... TMZ has learned.

Claudia -- who has worked for Tori for years -- tells TMZ she was Tori's dog walker but in 2011 the animals got too big for the 90210 star's digs and Tori asked Claudia to board the dogs at her home ... for a price of $525 a month.

Claudia says she didn't get paid this month and went ballistic.  She tried getting in touch with Tori, Dean and their accountant, with no success.   Claudia then spoke with a TMZ producer and she said if she didn't get her money by Monday she would take the dog to the shelter where it will more than likely be euthanized.

We then called Tori's people ... and they were completely in the dark.  Word got back to Tori and she went crazy and texted the woman and asked what the hell was going on.  Tori said she had no idea Claudia had not been paid and now she wants here dog back ... STAT.  

We then spoke to Claudia who said she would not answer Tori's text and would not give the dog back.

If you don't pay me I'll kill your dogs? What kind of nonsense is this? Somebody needs to get those dogs away from that crazy woman.

If she's willing to get it the dog euthanized over $525, I wonder how the dog was treated while living with her =/

It looks like a pitbull, better put it down before it bites her children's faces off.

Wow, if this doesnt say another dumb a** hollywood atory I dont know what does. A poor C or D level actress who is broke - feel for me people - has a dog walker (seems her underemployed husband could be good for something, right?) and pays over 500 a month for housing. After abandoning an expensive vehicle last week, now this....dont spend one second worrying about this delusional fool.

It's time to leave her and her family alone. The media sets out to destroy a person and everyone seems to jump on the bandwagon. It's kind of pathetic.

What a complete sicko! I'd go over there and get the dog myself. Who threatens to kill someone's dog? Hopefully Tori goes the right way about it, because if someone acted this way towards Me, I can't guarantee that I wouldn't hit them square in the jaw!

What kind of animal care giver threatens to have a dog put down over $525? How do you leave a beloved pet with a person who is clearly unstable. For Pete's sake, she can't reach the owners so she calls a gossip site?

Ummm. It's not her dog to put down. She isn't the owner, Tori is. Go ahead and put that dog down and you will be in jail lady for a felony since the dog is probably worth over 500 and that would be considered theft.

Euthanize a dog for spite, because you haven't been paid ? Is she crazy ? Call Shorty's Rescue..so this is why Tori was seen buying a small dog just a week ago..

Please let us know the full name of a bitch that would rather kill an animal then return it to an owner who is unable or has yet to pay her for the month. Animal lovers EVERYWHERE would LOVE to meet her.

Claudia doesn't seem like the best person to be caring for your dog in the first place. If she went that nutso in a month, how do you think the dog was treated the rest of the time?
