The quick actions of a fellow dog handler undoubtedly saved the dogs life
Thursday 9th August | by Cop(ex) | @ES_Humour
A drugs dog needed life-saving help after she accidentally consumed a huge dose of heroin as she was searching for drugs in a US Prison
The specially trained dog, ‘Abbie’ and her handler Eliseo Ramos were conducting a routine search at Clackamas County jail, in Oregon, on Tuesday.
As she was searching prisoners, she detected some drugs which had been hidden by a prisoner and alerted her handler.
The container that had the heroin in it was placed on an adjacent table but was knocked off and Abbie inadvertently ingested the drug.
The dog began salivating and panting as her head started to shake.
A fellow dog handler, Deputy McGlothin, immediately gave Abbie a shot of Narcan, a drug used when people overdose on the addictive drug.
The narcan was squirted up Abbie’s nose and immediately stabilised her while she was transported to the vet for urgent treatment.
A post on the Clackama County Sheriffs Office said:
“Fortunately, K9 Grimm’s handler Deputy McGlothin was able to deliver a special Narcan kit for dogs nasally to K9 Abbie.
Narcan contains nalaxone — a reversal drug for overdoses on opioids such as heroin, fentanyl and carfentanil.
Thanks to generous public donations, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office K9 teamwas recently able to purchase six Narcan kits for the unit’s dogs
Abbie was held overnight by the Vets and released the next morning.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?

We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
