A drug-sniffing police dog in Florida overdosed after identifying more than a dozen people trying to board a boat party with illegal substances.

K-9 Jake had to be treated with anti-overdose medication Narcan after exhibiting symptoms of a drug overdose, the Brevard County Sheriff’s office said.

“[Jake] started having some problems with balance and had some type of seizure
incident of some sort,” a spokesman said.

Analysis suggested the dog had ingested a form of ecstasy. The party-goer believed to be responsible, a 33-year-old, had hidden pills in his boxers which later tested positive for ecstasy and amphetamine.

Jake is in a stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery.
