A 3-year-old registered Pomer-anian was killed after an Akita allegedly attacked it Saturday morning, police said.
The owner of the Pomeranian told police he had paid $600 for the animal.
The yellow and white Akita mix was taken to the animal shelter at the McCandless Animal Hospital.
The owner of the Akita, Charlene Campagna, 22, was issued two citations -- one through municipal court and one through district court -- charging her with having a dog at large and owning a vicious dog.
Police said the owner of the Pomeranian told officers that he went outside his house in the 700 block of Prairie Street to see a large dog standing over his pet.
The dog owner apparently put the dead dog into the back of his pickup. Police confirmed that it was dead.
Police later found the Akita under the porch of a nearby house, the report said.

Man injured in wreck
A Craig man was treated and released at The Memorial Hospital late Saturday morning after crashing on his three-wheeled all-terrain vehicle.
Bobby Warren, 25, was ejected from his 1985 Honda 200 SF when he was driving eastbound along his private dirt road, police said.
Police said Warren was racing against traffic on U.S. Highway 40 but was not on the main road. Warren lives in the 1600 block of west U.S. 40, police said.

Guns stolen
Police think that somebody who knew the whereabouts of three guns may be responsible for taking them from a Craig residence. Three .22-caliber pistols are reported missing from a Craig house in the 800 block of Colorado Street.
The guns were noticed missing between April 10 and Saturday, police said. Two of the guns were in a locked safe, police said.
"Police are looking at circumstances indicating that this involved someone who knew the location of the guns in the house," Craig Police Lt. John Forgay said.

Meth found
Police allegedly found methamphetamine on a Craig man after he was arrested on suspicion of violating a restraining order while visiting a resident of the Simmons Rooms in Craig.
Police said they found 1.3 grams of a substance that field-tested positive for meth on Gregory David Winchester, 45, during a pat down search at about 6 p.m. Sunday. Police said they also found a drinking straw that had been cut at an angle and a glass pipe in the man's possession.
The man was charged with a felony for the possession of meth and a petty offense for possession of drug paraphernalia.
