The deputy used Narcan to save K9 dog been exposed to heroin

A deputy used a Narcan kit for dogs on a K9 that has been exposed to heroin that was smuggled in an Oregon prison.

A K-9 officer in Oregon was administered to a overdose reversal of the drug on Tuesday, after she has been exposed to heroin.

Abbie, a German Shepherd-belgian Malinois mix, was performing a routine search for contraband at the Clackamas County Jail, with her handler around 7:30 pm, when she discovered that there was heroin smuggled into the sheriff’s office said in a press release.

Abbie, a K-9 with the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, was administered Narcan on Tuesday, after she has been exposed to heroin, she discovered.

In the midst of the search, the heroin spilled and Abbie was exposed to the drug. They began to “exhibit signs of exposure to drugs, including excessive saliva, rapid head shake and blink rapidly.”

Another K-9 handler, Deputy McGlothin, administered in a dose of Narcan to Abbie, and she stabilized. She was treated at an animal hospital and released Wednesday morning.

The department said that they had six Narcan overdose kits specifically for the K-9s by the “generous donations from the public.”
