Chihuahua puppies revived with Narcan after suffering overdoses on LI

The owners of two adorable Chihuahua puppies named Freddie and Tonto who suffered a cocaine overdose and had to be resuscitated in Nalcan, Long Island, have now been charged, authorities announced Friday.

Suffolk County SPCA Director Roy Gross said in a statement that when Suffolk County SPCA officials responded Thursday, a 15-week-old male puppy was suffering from severe symptoms of coke OD at a local hospital.

An investigation revealed that the two dogs in the photo released by the SPCA were also taking fentanyl, Gross said.

Officials said they were given the overdose drug Narcan to help them.

Without urgent medical attention, the illegal drug could have been fatal to the dog, the director said.

The puppy’s owner, Adam Giomba, 53, of Port Jefferson Police Department, has been charged with two counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty, according to the SPCA.

He was scheduled to appear in First District Court on Friday.
