    The terrier mix was taken to an animal care facility where he was placed in a detox program.

    “I would say looking the video today, his prognosis is excellent,” Dr. Matthew Wheaton of the Alicia Pet Care Center told CBS2. “If he can avoid being exposed to additional drugs in the future with his new ‘forever home’ things will be perfectly fine.”

    Police described Bubba as “lethargic” when they found the dog, which Wheaton suggests understated the actual well-being of the pooch.

    “If the dog was truly ingesting these things in relatively large quantities, I think it would probably be more than just lethargic,” said Wheaton. “There might have been a lot of neurological stimulation with the dog, that at the end of the day it was actually short circuiting things.”

    Now officially done his detox, five rescue organizations have offered to take care of Bubba, while 15 people have signed up to adopt the dog.
