Sam Ronson Settles Beef In Dog Murder Lawsuit

Sam Ronson is paying for the (alleged) crimes of her bulldog in cold hard cash after she finally settled with the woman who sued her for the death of her pooch ... TMZ has learned.

As we first reported, Sam's bulldog Cadillac allegedly mauled her neighbor's maltese Tiger back in 2010 ... and the pup later died. So Tiger's owner, Farnouche Kamran, sued Sam for $750,000. She also blamed the apartment complex and Sam's landlord in her suit. 

Every dog has its day -- and sources tell us the parties reached a settlement outside of court. We're told Kamran isn't walking away with the $750k ... but she did score in the low five figures.

Kamran's lawyer, Ronald Richards, tells TMZ it wasn't about the money, saying, "It was all about vindicating the death of Tiger, my client's beloved companion and nothing more."

R.I.P. Tiger.
