Bubba shot to fame after a video of him running after and pushing a ball across the family’s living room floor in Bedgrove attracted millions of views on video sharing websites.

The story was picked up by national newspapers and the Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School pupil even took time off school to talk to BBC radio about Bubba’s new found fame.

Ciara told the Herald: “It all happened so quickly.

“I haven’t told many people at school about it.

“I got him for Christmas and he’s famous already!

“I chose the name Bubba because he has an underbite like Forrest Gump.

“He doesn’t really have any other special talents - he runs a lot and eats a lot!”
