HOUSTON (KTRK)-- Deputies are looking for the owners of two pit bulls that broke into a home and brutally attacked a pair of Jack Russell Terriers that lived there.

The attack happened around 8:30pm on Tumbling Rapids near Hickory Downs in northwest Harris County.
Investigators say the dogs barged through a fence, got into the house through the doggie door and then attacked the two smaller dogs there. One dog died. The other was taken to an emergency clinic.
Deputies later lured the pit bulls into a squad car. They used crackers to coax one of the dogs to get into the vehicle.
The Terrier owner's boyfriend, David Leachman, says they're lucky they weren't injured.
"I was at work and she was at work, and luckily, her son was working up at Walmart, and he didn't know. He's over at her ex-husband's house right now," said Leachman.
"The one dog was no problem at all. The other one was very scared, very stiff. You could tell it wasn't sure what it was going to do," said Asst. Chief Dep. John Laine with the Harris County Precinct 5 Constable's Office. "So there were just a few tense moments while we were first making contact with the dog and getting the dog to actually get in the container and get in the car."
Investigators say they don't know who owns the pit bulls. They are expected to be taken to animal control
