When Tustin, California police officers served an arrest warrant on heroin and meth addict Joshua West for a parole violation, they made a horrifying discovery.

West’s tiny terrier mix puppy named Bubba, who was both lethargic and appeared afraid. Tests revealed that Bubba was addicted to heroin and methamphetamine. He also had tobacco in his system.

It was all “due to living with his drug using owners,” the police reported on their Facebook page.

It took several weeks for Bubba to detox, and now the little fella is a bundle of joy.

Orange County Animal Care reported that although requests are pouring in to adopt the puppy, he’s not quite ready for his forever home yet. It said:

We have received many inquiries about Bubba, the dog impounded during an arrest in Tustin in March. We wanted to provide everyone an update on his case. This is an open investigation so we cannot release exact or identifying details but we can confirm that Bubba was impounded from a person (arrested for unrelated charges) in March. It was alleged that Bubba had been intentionally exposed to drugs by another person or persons. OC Animal Care conducted an investigation into the matter and has submitted the findings to the District Attorney for case consideration. Bubba has been treated by OC Animal Care and is recovering well. He is not available for adoption yet but we will keep everyone posted when he is being made available.

Staff has been playing with and exercising Bubba daily.


When the officers who rescued the pup returned for a visit, Bubba could hardly contain himself, he was so full of energy.
