The K9 of a Florida sheriff is back to work after having a bad reaction to drugs he sniffed at a passenger leaving a cruise ship last week.
On Friday, Port Canaveral in Cocoa Beach, Florida, posted a video by Jake that the return of the three-year golden retriever along with his boss, deputy Scott Stewart, was at work.

& # 39; Here you can see where they had hooked the infusion stand into his leg to keep moisture on him, & # 39; explains Deputy Stewart. & # 39; They had to shave his hair right there. & # 39;
"He is doing very well", he says before the scene plays them on a lawn.
Jake began to show aggressive symptoms and lost motor control after discovering drugs with a man who was preparing to board the Holy Ship! music festival cruise in Port Canaveral on Wednesday, according to the Sheriff's Office of Brevard County.
There have been dozens of drug arrests in the past two years, according to ClickOrlando, when the electronic cruise with the dance music festival left Port Canaveral, but the sheriff's office said that this was the first time a K9 had been injured.
Leslie Bennett, 33, of Missoula, Montana, was charged with drug possession after Jake, the police dog, became ill of snorting the ecstasy he had hidden in his boxers

There have been dozens of drug arrests while boarding the Holy Ship! cruise on Port Canaveral, but the website of the music festival does give a zero tolerance policy for contraband
Police spokesman Tod Goodyear said that Jake Narcan got a precaution because deputies were not sure what the reaction was causing.
A veterinarian noted that the dog was probably exposed to ecstasy powder on Leslie Bennett, a 33-year-old from Missoula, Montana.
Delegates found a bag in Bennett boxers that contained the notorious party drug, possibly crushed, and his baggage provided amphetamine, sildenafil citrate and lorazepam in a container for Dramamine, the cure for seasickness.
He is accused of possessing a controlled substance without a prescription, but ClickOrlando reports that he will not be accused of Jake's injuries because he did not intend to hurt the police dog.

Narcan is an injection that is often given to people after an opioid overdose to help reverse the effects, but federal agents in Port Canaveral do not get the life-saving drug
Robert J MacLean, with the US Marshals Office, said that a crew member on board the ship provided deputies from Narcan, an injection given to humans often after an overdose of opioids.
MacLean said that federal agents in Port Canaveral do not carry Narcan, which was a problem because they could also be exposed to unknown substances or drugs.
For his part, Holy Ship! website warns its party people emphatically what they can expect in terms of security checks.
& Holy Ship! has a strict zero tolerance policy & # 39 ;, says the port information page. & # 39; Every person and every piece of baggage is inspected by dogs trained to detect explosives and contraband. & # 39;
