The owner flagged down a police officer because she was fearful her dog, Addie, had overdosed on oxycodone.

Narcan saves dozens of Mainers every year, and Thursday, a dog from York County benefited from the opioid antidote.

The owner flagged down a police officer because she was fearful her dog, Addie, had overdosed on oxycodone.

The dog’s owner told police she had gotten into the legally prescribed medication.

When the officer administered the drug, Addie seemed to perk back up.

According to her owner, the dog is doing just fine.
