What everyone knows for sure is that Bubba has earned the right to be comfortable.
But it will take a while for Bubba to be fully comfortable in his own skin. He still has a long road ahead of him. The mange, along with a secondary skin infection, will likely still take months to completely clear up.
"It's going to be a lengthy process," Varanini says. "It's pretty generalized. It's kind of all over him. We're expecting treatment to take at least two months, if not longer."
"Once we get him all better, we'll be able to adopt him out."
Until then, he's on a strict treatment regimen that includes medicated baths. But through it all, Bubba never stopped being his sweet self.
"He was sweet here in the shelter. Obviously, his skin didn't feel that great. So he was pretty quiet and slept a lot," Varanini says.
