(Newser) – Britney Spears is out of the doghouse with the SPCA. The society's LA chapter has dropped its investigation into her dog's broken leg, People reports. The investigation followed reports that the Yorkie wasn't being treated for the injury. But the dog's vet reported that everything was just fine.

The SPCA wasn't able to reach the pop star last week, the group's president says; "Access Hollywood" reports that a representative who visited her home didn't have a warrant and wasn't able to see the dog. The group later issued a statement thanking Spears for her cooperation.
