Heartwarming Moment Puppy Recognizes Cop Who Rescued Him from Drug House


In March, a warrant was issued for the arrest of Joshua West, who was staying in a hotel in Orange County, California. West, a past offender had violated his parole.

When police entered the hotel room they found illegal drugs and used needles, this was expected but something else found stunned officers.

A small white dog was also in the room and appeared to be under the influence of drugs.

Officers brought the dog, named Bubba to the Orange County Animal Care where he received vet care.

Later the officers were notified that Bubba had tested positive for Meth and Heroin.  It is unknown how the drugs entered the puppy’s system.

The county district attorney will be adding animal cruelty to the many charges West is facing. In the meantime, Bubba has recovered from his experience and is ready to go to a rescue as soon as he is released to them.

Katie Ingram, director at the Orange County Animal Care says, “Bubba has adjusted very well and is one of the staff favorites.”

“Bubba is very social, and has multiple rescue groups waiting to take him when he is released,” she explains.

Last week Officer Laurich, the officer who initially brought Bubba to Animal Control, decided to check in on the little guy.

They reintroduction was caught on camera, Bubba who looks to be about 6 months old, was ecstatic to see his rescuer again.

The two enjoyed some fun in the sun and grass together. Check out the joy as the two reunite, Bubba is one happy pup!

With all the negative media surrounding our men in blue, this is a nice reminder that they are human just like you and me.
