The injured pet, an eight-year-old labrador mix named Ilsa, was euthanized after suffering life-threatening neck and head wounds, according to Penn Vet's Ryan Hospital.
The animals reportedly are still on the loose.
The attack left blood stains on the sidewalk in front of the Sunoco gas station at 23rd Street and Fairmount Avenue.
Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia has received several reports of two dogs roaming together near that intersection, according to a posting by the agency on Nextdoor at 2:35 p.m. Friday. ACCT officers will continue patrolling the area. ACCT officials are seeking a description of the aggressive dogs, according to the posting.
ACCT officials did not immediately return a request for more information.
"We do not currently have a description of these dogs and are seeking any information that would assist our Animal Control Officers in their capture and impoundment," ACCT posted on Nextdoor. "If you have any information you are encouraged to contact our dispatch office at 267-385-3800, option 1."
