This adorable little guy is Bubba, a 7 year old Maltese, that has lived a horrible life over the past several months. When his owner became ill and was unable to take care of his companion, he gave Bubba to a family member to take care of. The family member had six dogs that began attacking little Bubba every time they saw him. Bubba was banished to the shed -- and this little guy made a home out of that lonely shed for several months. All through the cold winter, the sweltering summer, Bubba lived a life of pathetic solitude. Finally, another family discovered what was going on and the awful condition of Bubba and contacted the Society to take in this fella.
When he arrived, Bubba was infested with fleas, covered in his own urine and feces. The mats that covered his little body were pulling his skin so tight and causing pain. Bubba received immediate medical attention and was neutered. Once his filthy coat was removed, a handsome little man emerged that was so thrilled to be relieved of his painful coat and so relieved to be in good hands.
Bubba is a real sweetheart and extremely gentle and well behaved.

Bubba is not the only sad story of a beloved companion who is separated when an owner becomes ill, incapacitated or dies. Giving a dog or cat to a family member or friend may not work out. Popcorn Park is there to make your life's future plans easier. For more information on what will happen to your pet in the event you are no longer there, please contact us.
