Sniffer dog overdoses while screening boat party passengers in Florida
K-9 pup Jake is expected to make a full recovery
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.
