Party passengers recently boarded Holy Ship’s 13th voyage, which departed from Port Canaveral in Florida this week. But not before going through a thorough luggage search from the US Department of Customs. Over a dozen Shippers were detained for drugs and illicit materials at port of entry — but the story here is about a dog named Jake.
While screening passengers and their luggage, Brevard County Sheriff’s Office drug-sniffing K9 discovered a batch of drugs before falling suddenly ill, reported a local news source. The dog was given Narcan by a crew member, a narcotic often used to treat overdoses in humans.
“[Jake] started having some problems with balance and had some type of seizure incident of some sort, was showing effects of having inhaled some substance,” Tod Goodyear, a sheriff’s office spokesperson, told WFTV. “They administered the Narcan and got [him] to the vet.”
The substance in the baggie was later confirmed to be a powdered form of ecstasy, in which case the active ingredient in Narcan would be totally useless to treat in a human, let alone a canine. Narcan is administered in the case of opioid overdose.
The dog is currently reported to be in stable condition. Holy Ship! 13.0 returns on Saturday, January 12.
