LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An LMPD K-9 has received a clean bill of health after the animal came in contact with the narcotic fentanyl during a drug bust.

News about Josie's latest condition was issued by Louisville Metro Police on Wednesday afternoon by Officer Vadim Dale.

"I am glad to announce that Josie has been given a clean bill of health, had two separate performance reviews and passed with flying colors. She is back 'On Duty' serving the city of Louisville again," Dale said in a statement.

Josie was exposed to the drug on Aug. 10 while police executed a search warrant on Millers Lane, near Dixie Highway, according to an arrest report. Police say they had to administer three doses of Narcan to revive the female dog.
