Carrollton Police Save Overdosed Dog After Eating Heroin Stash, Arrest Owners

25 February 2017

"We weren't sure exactly what was going on with it, but there was drug paraphernalia", Carrollton Police spokeswoman Jolene DeVito told CBS radio station 1080 KRLD.

On Saturday, Carrollton police officers found a puppy suffering from an overdose of heroin that he somehow ingested. Thomas Romero of Newark, Texas and Nina Crawford of Fort Worth told police there was a dog in their auto. The dog was transferred to the North Texas Emergency Pet Clinic for emergency treatment, and officials say the animal is expected to make a full recovery.

"He was extraordinarily lethargic, nearly comatose", recalled emergency veterinarian Dr. Stacie Fowler.

As for the humans, well, they're now behind bars for heroin possession and fraudulent destruction after reportedly caught switching price tags inside the home depot.

A Chihuahua mix in Texas has earned the nickname Lucky after overdosing on his owner's heroin.

Carrollton police thanked the veterinarian and her colleagues for saving the young pup in a post on their Facebook page.

As a result, for years, it's been a quiet destination for Northerners looking for jobs, schools and business deals. Malaysia is one of North Korea's few allies, but the incident has raised diplomatic tensions between the nations.

His caretakers at Carrollton Animal Services say he's bounced back rather well.

Lucky's owners have been charged with fraud and drug possession.

The owners, 46-year-old Thomas Romero and 38-year-old Nina Crawford were arrested - but for alleged price-tag switching inside the store.

Lucky will then go up for adoption.

DeVito told KRLD that animal abuse charges are likely to follow.
