Bubba comes with a sad story. He lived his entire life outside, his only cover from sun or rain was a flimsy wooden plank. His ears are scarred and mangled from fly bites, his eyes were both infected when he came to us, and his spirit was clearly broken. When we pulled him from the carrier he was in, he urinated and defacted in fear, and then simply collapsed on a towel on the ground, unwilling to move. We knew Bubba has scars, both emotional and physical, and we knew we wanted to help him recover from both.
Bubba is now is a loving Paw Placement foster home, and he's blossoming before our eyes. As soon as he had a bath - possibly his first ever - we could tell he felt better. He rubbed himself on a towel, flipped on his back and rolled on the carpet, and got the "so fresh and so clean" zoomies! His foster mom, with her patient and gentle nature, quickly gained his trust, and he began to seek affection. Next was teaching him to walk on a leash, then house training and potty training, socializing him with people and exposing him to a whole new world.
Bubba has shown us how strong and resilient dogs truly are - he wants to trust and he wants to be loved and, despite his dark past, he's willing to move forward and let go of that past.
We are learning more about Bubba every day, and will continue to update his biography. Right now, we believe Bubba would do well in a home with adults, children over 8, and dogs - he has not been tested with cats or young children. If you are interested in meeting or adopting Bubba, please complete an adoption application.
