Police are investigating an incident in Toxteth in which a dog died.
Officers were called Wendell Street on Saturday to reports of a disturbance.
They found a man and a woman with non life-threatening injuries. An injured dog was also found at the scene and taken for medical treatment - but has since died.
By the time we got him to the vets it was too late and he passed away, it was awful.
He was such a sweet dog, he couldn’t go to sleep without having his blanket over him, he was a softie. I can’t believe this has happened.
An investigation is ongoing - anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police of the independent charity Crimestoppers.

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after the bodies of a woman and two children were discovered following "continuous female screams" at a former home of John Lennon.
Merseyside Police were called to a ground-floor flat in Falkner Street, Toxteth, at around 7.30pm on Tuesday after concern for the safety of the occupants.
Officers said the investigation was in its early stages, but believe it is "domestic related".
One neighbour described hearing "a scream like no other" coming from inside the home at around 7pm.
The man, who did not wish to be named, told the Press Association: "I heard screams - it was screams that make you sit up and go outside to see what's going on. It wasn't a scream of joy."
He added: "They were female screams and it was continuous, that's what made me go outside.
"It was a scream like no other. It will stay with me for a while, to be honest."
He described seeing one man being "rushed out" into an ambulance, shortly before police evacuated part of the street.
The property is regularly visited by Beatles fans on tours of the city because the band's manager, Brian Epstein, had owned a flat there, where Lennon lived with his first wife Cynthia shortly after they married.
