Original Post: A K-9 with the Snohomish Regional Drug Task Force had to be given Narcan after becoming lethargic following exposure to Fentanyl during a search warrant service of an apartment in Everett, Washington this morning. Here’s the initial report posted today to social media by the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

Earlier this morning, Drug Task Force K-9 Sully and his handler were assisting Skagit County with a search warrant service in Everett. Task Force detectives cleared the apartment and K-9 Sully and his handler entered to search inside. K-9 Sully indicated several areas inside the apartment. Sully is trained in methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin.

The search took approximately 10 minutes. K-9 Sully was returned to his vehicle while his partner K-9 went inside to conduct a second search.

About 15 minutes passed, and K-9 Sully’s handler noticed a normal very hyper Sully was unresponsive in his kennel. He immediately grabbed Sully and tapped his face several times in an effort to wake him up. Sully remained unresponsive.

His handler quickly jumped into action and retrieved Narcan from inside the vehicle door. He gave Sully two doses and called for backup from other Task Force units on scene. Sully’s handler retrieved a third dose of Narcan, administered it to Sully, jumped in the driver seat with Sully and raced to the ER vet.

Sully began waking up upon arrival at the vet. Medical staff checked his vitals and monitored him for some time. He has since been released and is very tired but is doing well. A large amount of drugs were seized from the apartment, including cocaine, meth, heroin and fentanyl.

Additionally, during the search warrant service today, Task Force detectives discovered there was a toddler living inside the apartment. CPS was contacted and is responding.
Thank you all for keeping K-9 Sully in your thoughts as he recovers.
