COOPERSTOWN - The Susquehanna SPCA has a K-9 caper on its hands.

Max, a Great Dane, appeared on NewsChannel 2’s “Furever Friends” segment this past Monday.

Max was wearing a pronged dog collar which noticably irritated his neck. Concerned viewers reached out to NewsChannel 2 and the SPCA to inquire about it.

The SPCA says that type of collar wouldn't normally be used, but the dog arrived and went on TV at the last minute.

The SPCA wants to let people know there are better ways to control larger dogs.

“Because we know that there's a better way, I would always recommend trying to use a no-pull harness, and if the no-pull harness doesn't work then maybe reach out to somebody who has a degree in dog behavior that can help you and advise you if you do want to use a dog collar,” said Executive Director Stacie Haynes.

A much more comfortable no-pull harness was purchased for Max, is on his way to being adopted.

Also, the Susquehanna SPCA has 100 cats at the shelter, available for adoption at 50% off.
