Metro- Bubba, a chirpy seven-month-old terrier mix, has now found a new family after spending four months recovering in Orange County Animal Care.He had been found festering in a hotel room in Tustin, California and when rescuers first saw him, he was huddled in a corner, listless, and close to death.
‘I walked in and saw all these drugs on the ground,’ Lt Brian Frick, a supervising animal control officer, told the OC Register.
‘I said, “where’s the dog?” and walked around the corner and saw him lying listless. He was so cold and lethargic, I thought it was just he’d been taken from his mom too soon. I never suspected he may have gotten into drugs.’His 40-year-old owner Joshua West was arrested on an outstanding warrant, as well as for possession of methamphetamine, heroin and drug paraphernalia.Meanwhile, when vets ran medical tests on Bubba they found he tested positive for methamphetamine and heroin.
It is unclear whether the dog ingested the drugs or inhaled the fumes.
Since then he has been treated with a regular diet of fluids and healthy food. And finally, last week, his tests came back clear for the first time.An anonymous couple were quick to adopt little Bubba, who is now drug-free and full of life.
Katie Ingram, assistant director of OC Animal Care, said: ‘They were a really nice couple and told us that Bubba would have a sister. Bubba bonded with them immediately.’
Now the pup is enjoying his new home with a loving family.
Really proud of Bubba here. Proud of anyone who gets the help they need to make themselves a better person. I’ve watched Intervention so many times and seen all those people fuck up while their doing their stint in rehab and most of the time I think they send em to pretty much a 7 star hotel. Passages Malibu looks like a great time where you don’t need to get high but that’s just how crazy Heroin and Meth is, they get you by the soul. And the thing is most of the time I could care less about people who get peer pressured in because you can still say no. But Bubba the dog here is man’s best friend so he has no choice but to do meth with his drug addled owner. Shame on Josh West. When that guy gets out of prison he better not get another dog. Like taking an animal so sweet and corrupting it with crystal meth and shit should be like a mortal sin. This will sound nerdy as fuck but its like in Harry Potter when they say killing a unicorn for its blood will give you a cursed half life? Well if you get a happy puppy hooked on intravenous drugs, you should just rot in prison.
