Putting the call out

I'm trying to track down a comic for a reference, but all my attempts to do so have, so far, been in vain. Here's what I can remember:
  • It's a comic from the last fifteen years or so, I'm guessing mid-to-late '90s
  • I thought it was a Superman comic, but I could be wrong about that
  • I'm pretty sure Ron Frenz did the art
  • The plot goes something like this: a big alien monster is tearing stuff up, but is eventually stopped by the hero, whereupon an alien in a spacesuit comes to retrieve it. Turns out the big monster is the alien's pet. The hero remarks that it's kind of like a dog, after which the alien removes its helmet to reveal a very canine-looking face, and says "something like that," or something like that.
At this point, I could probably draw the alien from memory. I remember the panel where it appears vividly, and especially the clearly-photoreferenced dog face, but I can't for the life of me figure out what comic this was in. Google has been no help, and flipping through random issues may take me several more days. Anyone know what this was off the top of their heads?

Feels like it might be a Superboy comic, but beyond it seeming vaguely familiar, I can't help you.
