The death row dog sprung minutes from his demise has been euthanized.

Police arrested Max's owners after they say the couple stole him from an Alameda animal shelter.

A deputy city attorney in Alameda said the 70-pound pit bull has been  euthanized.

A judge condemned Max to death on May 11 for biting two people in separate incidents.
     
Police claim his owners, Richard Cochran and Melissa Perry, used bolt cutters to cut through a shelter fence the day before Max was originally scheduled to be put down.

Perry was later found with the dog in Reno.

Perry and Cochran are facing charges of burglary and receiving stolen property.

Max's life ended over the weekend, according to authorities.
