EDMOND, Okla. – The case against an Oklahoma dog trainer, who was accused of animal cruelty, has been dismissed.

In February, Autumn O’feery says she was getting ready to leave her home when she saw a dog acting strange.

“Heard this yelping and barking coming from out front. I realized there was a dog underneath my car. At first, I thought it might have been hit by a car because it was yelping,” O’feery said.

O’feery says she soon realized the boxer mix had a shock collar on at the time.

“It was actually violently pushing against the front window jumping, and it just sounds like she was in a lot of pain,” she said.

According to court records, the dog got loose and Lukas Miller, the owner of Sit Means Sit Dog Training, turned up the shock collar and used it repeatedly to try to find the 2-year-old dog named Nala.

Miller was charged with animal cruelty.

On Thursday, Miller’s attorney contacted NewsChannel 4 and said the case against his client has been dismissed.
