Police Rescue Suspects' Dog From Heroin Overdose

Police Rescue Suspects' Dog From Heroin Overdose

His owners allegedly left him inside their vehicle while they went inside a Home Depot to shoplift.

A Chihuahua puppy in Texas experienced a huge stroke of luck after police rescued him from a drug overdose on Saturday.

"He was extraordinarily lethargic, nearly comatose, barely breathing, his heart rate was very, very slow, his body temperature was really low", Carrollton Police Department spokesperson, Jolene DeVito told KHOU.

"He was extraordinarily lethargic, nearly comatose, barely breathing, his heart rate was very, very slow, his body temperature was really low", said veterinarian Stacie Fowler.

Turns out, the pup overdosed on opiates and cops claim it was "specifically heroin". "He was really on the verge of not breathing".

Budapest withdraws bid to host 2024 Olympics, leaving Paris and Los Angeles
As the necessary unity in Budapest has been lost, the bid of Budapest lost all of its chances, the government said. Budapest came under a cloud of uncertainty when the Momentum Mozgalom youth group began gathering signatures.

Lucky's owners, Thomas Romero and Nina Crawford, were both charged with possession of a controlled substance and for switching price tags.

"If he had not received treatment, he would have stopped breathing", Dr. Fowler said.

Soon the dog - which the clinic named Lucky - was on the road to recovery, and the Carrollton Police Department issued a statement on Facebook thanking the staff at the clinic and commending the puppy's toughness.

The Carrollton Texas Police Department posted about the incident on Tuesday. If all goes well, it will be placed up for adoption, police said. DeVito told 1080 KRLD that animal charges will most likely be added to their sentences, as well.

"If I didn't know something happened to him", Carrollton Animal Services Care Specialist Joe Skenesky told KHOU, "I wouldn't know anything was wrong with him".
