*Rapper Rick Ross is being sued for $15,000 for the death of a 3-year-old Yorkshire Terrier.

According to the suit, his three pitbulls escaped from his Atlanta mansion in April and killed the unsuspecting doggie, named Banks (see photo below).

The dead canine’s owner says in court documents that Ross, referred to as William L. Roberts II, allowed his four legged children to enter her property and ferociously attack her baby, reports TMZ.

The Terrier suffered from “three large bite wounds on his back” and a “very large bite wound” around his neck.
