Addie ... revived by Narcan (YCSO photo)

LYMAN, Maine - A Lyman pooch is OK this morning after getting a dose of Narcan from a York County Sheriff's officer.

Sgt. David Chauvette was patrolling Lyman on Thursday when he was flagged down by a woman who was not identified.

The woman was fearful that her dog, Addie, had "overdosed" on her prescribed oxycodone. The three-year-old yellow lab had inadvertently gotten into her legally prescribed medication and the owner was very fearful that the dog could possibly die, York County Sheriff William King said in a press release.

Addie seemed a bit drowsy, the woman said, and she first sought assistance from a local vet to no avail.

Consequently she flagged down the sergeant and asked him to administer the popular anti-opioid to Addie. He did and Addie seemed to perk up a little.

On Thursday night the owner said Addie was fine and back to her old self. The woman was grateful the sheriff's office carries the life-saving drug.
