Police in Perth have shot dead a dog and arrested a man who allegedly became aggressive as he was being arrested.

The man's dog attacked the officers following a struggle between police and a 25-year-old man in Orelia on Friday night.

Police used pepper spray and a Taser on the dog after he bit the officers on the wrist, foot and forearm but the dog continued to attack them, prompting one officer to shoot the animal.
