Tori Spelling's dog will not bite the dust in the foreseeable future ... because the pooch just got a reprieve.
TMZ broke the story ... Spelling boarded the dog 3 years ago with her dog walker because she felt it was unsafe to have a big pit bull around her small kids.
Tori was paying a hefty $525 a month to board Dizzle, but the dog walker went nuclear last week when she hadn't received payment and threatened to take the dog to a shelter ... which means almost certain death.
But good news for Dizzle ... Much Love Animal Rescue contacted the dog walker and offered to take the dog and place it in another boarding facility until they can place the pooch in a proper home.
BTW ... we're told Tori and hubby Dean McDermott have paid the dog walker, so it ends up a happy dog tale.
