A puppy named Bubba had a rough start to life. He was strung out on heroin, methamphetamine, and marijuana when his owner was arrested on suspicion of drug possession at a Tustin motel last March.
Today, the Jack Russell Chihuahua mix is drug-free and ready to be adopted after going through detox.
"Initially, we had some concerns about how Bubba would be affected by drugs in his system," said Katie Ingram of OC Animal Care.
"We had calls from all over the world inquiring about Bubba," Ingram said.
Now, Lt. Kevin Frager of O.C. Animal Care says Bubba is very energetic and playful. And finally, for the first time in four months, Bubba is drug-free and up for adoption.
"It's a special story. He's a special dog that deserves that second chance. The staff has become very attached to him after we've had him now for four months. It's gonna be sad but also happy to see him go to a new home," Ingram said.
Those interested in adopting Bubba should visit O.C. Animal Care in Orange.
