A puppy who nearly died after getting into its former-owners heroin stash has made a miraculous recovery and has now been adopted into a loving new family.
The Chihuhua cross, who has since been nicknamed ‘Lucky’, was found suffering from a drug overdose in the back of a truck in Texas three weeks ago.
Police in Carrollton said they made the shock discovery after arresting the pup’s owners for switching prices tags on items at a retail store.
“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,” police said in a statement.
After being rushed to an Emergency pet clinic, ‘Lucky’ made an amazing recovery and was put up for adoption.
It didn’t take long for the adorable pup to find a new home. In a post on Facebook, the City of Carrollton Animal Adoption Center said Lucky was now in the care of a loving little girl and her parents.
“Lucky the little Pup who got into some heroin got himself adopted today by a great family with a little girl all his own,” the adoption centre wrote.
“Another gentleman came for lucky but gave up his chance so the little girl could have her dream pup and Lucky have his little girl.”
Lucky’s former owners were arrested for heroin possession and for fraudulent destruction.
