A puppy that was found in the depths of a squalid crack den, addicted to crystal-meth and heroin has cleaned up his act and is now sober.

Bubba, a seven-month-old terrier mix, has now found a new family after spending four months recovering in Orange County Animal Care.

Lt Brian Frick, a supervisin animal control officer told reporters:

“I walked in and saw all these drugs on the ground,”

“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 owner, 40-year-old Joshua West, was arrested on an outstanding warrant, and for possession of methamphetamine, heroin and drug paraphernalia.

Bubba was taken to OC Animal Care, where tests revealed the pooch was high on methamphetamine and heroin.

He was tested again in the weeks after his rescue and one his results came back clear he was put up for adoption.

An anonymous couple were quick to adopt little Bubba, who is now drug-free and full of life.
