From the Carrollton (TX) police department’s Facebook page:

Our many thanks today to Dr. Stacie Fowler and the staff at North Texas Emergency Pet Clinic for nursing this honorary K-9 back to health.

A-shift patrol officers found the puppy suffering from a drug overdose Saturday. Pup was left in the floorboard of a truck in the Home Depot parking lot while its humans were busy inside switching price tags.

Humans were arrested for heroin possession and for fraudulent destruction, removal, or concealment of writing. Puppy is on way to full recovery from opiate overdose and is back in the care of The City of Carrollton Animal Adoption Center.

I know heroin has become a terrible problem most everywhere, but seriously, WHO GIVES HEROIN TO A PUPPY??? Once again, I’m forced to ask What is wrong with people? I’m so glad an arrest was made.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
