Police have charged a man over the stabbing death of a four-year-old pet Labrador that shocked Perth on Thursday.

The 23-year-old woman, identified as Bridgette, told reporters she was walking her Labradors Luna and Chocco at a Mirrabooka park around 6.20pm yesterday when the attack occurred.

"Within a split second Luna was on the floor, I thought she was just submitting, wanting to play", the woman said.

Bridgette said Luna had bounded over to a man, who had his own small dog, before dropping to the ground as he bent down beside her.

Luna was off the lead and playfully approached the odd man before he crouched down and then walked away as the dog collapsed to the ground.

'I just picked her up and lay her on top of me and felt her heart and I couldn't feel anything.

And it was connected with last year's theft of $81 million dollars from a Bangladesh account at the Federal Reserve Bank in NY . In 2013, networks of major South Korean banks and broadcasters were the victim of attacks traced to North Korea.

"I got closer, I realised she was on the floor, blood all over her, I just dropped and start screaming and screaming", she said.

She said her dog was gentle and good with other animals.

It was only upon visiting a vet later that she learnt Luna had in fact suffered a fatal stab wound.

"I just can't imagine what could have possibly been going through his head", she said. The maximum sentence for animal cruelty carries a five year jail term.

Police arrested the Mirrabooka man on Friday and charged him with animal cruelty, and he will appear in Perth Magistrates Court on June 15, according to police.
