Last Update Aug 29 2016

Name: Krishna's pups
Breed: Havanese Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 5 weeks
Weight: 2 lbs
Krishna's puppies just turned 5 weeks old and will be available for pre-adoption in another week. There are 5 girls and 1 boy. Stay tuned for Dharma, Kula, Chakra, Mantra, Asana & Bhodi as they practice their Yoga poses.

Krishna thought she was heading to yoga class, when she took a terrible detour and ended up at the Orange County Animal Shelter. Krishna had a big secret she was hiding under her yoga mat. During her stay at the shelter, she gave birth to 6 precious puppies. Shortly after, we received a plea from the shelter and off we went. Krishna is now practicing poses with her yogi's in a cozy foster home. Now that summer is coming to an end, Krishna will be weaning from her puppies and available to join a home of her own. Krishna is a an adorable Havanese/Poodle mix with a crooked little underbite, which we think only adds to her good looks. Krishna weighs about 12 lbs, and is a fun loving dog. She gets along with everyone she meets, walks great on leash, is potty trained in her foster home and LOVES playing fetch. Overall, she has a mellow personality, but craves to be with the one she loves.

Weight: 12 lbs


Name: Minion
Breed: Maltese Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 1 1/2 years
Weight: 8 1/2 lbs
This handsome guy found himself in the scary shelter without an owner in sight. Once again we are scratching our heads as to how this fella ended up in the shelter. But thankfully he is now a Lovebug and has a chance to find a forever home. Minion is a petite boy who is playful with other dogs and is learning basic skills, such as walking on lead. He seems to be house and crate trained. We have no doubt Minon is going to make a great addition to a lucky family!

Wookie was turned into the shelter without an owner in sight. A little on the shy side initially, Wookie does enjoy the company of other dogs and people. He warms up quickly so we think he will benefit from continued socialization in his foster home. Wookie is learning the ropes in his foster home which includes daily outings and walks, and some basic obedience. He is a very sweet and docile dog and will make an excellent forever furry companion.

Name: Wookie
Breed: Cockapoo
Gender: Male
Age: 2 years
Weight: 28 lbs


Name: Louis
Breed: Poodle
Gender: Male
Age: 4 years
Weight: 10 1/2 lbs
Louis was surrendered to Lovebugs Rescue by his former owner. He is a gorgeous male poodle who gets along with other dogs and walks great on lead. Louis is both house and crate trained in his current foster home. He will do best in an adult only home who will continue to take him on daily walks.

We found this sweet little gal at the shelter, filthy, terrified, and shaking in the back of her kennel. Our best guess is that Noey spent her life as a back yard dog with little interaction from humans and we knew she would benefit greatly from some socialization in a foster home to help her get ready to find her forever family. Noey is a 3 year old, 16 pound, Maltese/Westie mix with a heart of gold. This gal is on the timid side when meeting new people and will need a calm home with someone who will be patient and let her settle in at her own pace. She has become quiet fond of her foster family and is very affectionate once she feels comfortable with her humans. Noey does well with other dogs and is both crate and potty trained in her foster home. She has likely never been taught to walk on a leash so we are slowly working on building her confidence so she feels comfortable going out for a daily stroll. Noey was filthy and her coat was painfully matted when we rescued her. She will need someone who is committed to a regular grooming routine to keep her coat healthy and beautiful. Noey is a wonderful girl with lots of love to give. We know she will make an amazing companion for someone very special.

Name: Noey
Breed: Maltese Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 3 years
Weight: 16 lbs


Name: Gigi Loo
Breed: Cockapoo Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 4 years
Weight: 20 lbs
Gigi Loo is an adorable gal with a soft bed of curls. She was surrendered to Lovebugs Rescue when her family ran into some medical issues. Although they loved their little girl, they felt it was best she be rehomed. Gigi Loo hasn't missed a beat in her new foster home. Although a bit on the shy side initially, Gigi warms up and seeks affection. She will do great in a home that is looking to take their pooch on daily walks and outings. Gigi Loo is a 4 year old 20 lbs Cockapoo mix. Her ideal weight should be in the 16 lb range, so we'll be working to get a few pounds off of her through diet and exercise.

This dainty darling came to Lovebugs Rescue very frail and thin. It was obvious Foxy had been on her own most of her short life. Foxy is a shy gal, but warms up to people quickly. She enjoys the company of other dogs and is learning to live the life of a pampered pooch with meals she can count on. Foxy is a 1 year old, 7 lb red and white Chihuahua mix. She is a very sweet docile girl that will make a great addition to a family on the quiet side.

Name: Foxy
Breed: Chihuahua Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 1 year
Weight: 7 lbs


Name: Franco
Breed: Wheaten Terrier Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 2 years
Weight: 25 lbs
This handsome boy sure cleaned up nice! Franco was discarded at the shelter a filthy, matted mess, covered in foxtails. This 2 year old 25 lb Wheaton mix has clearly lived a life with little to no interaction with humans. So to him, we are pretty scary. But it's Lovebugs Rescue job to make sure Franco begins to realize humans not so scary after all. We come with good things like frequent snacks and walks! And Franco now LOVES his daily outings. Franco does wonderful with other dogs and is both crate and potty trained. The type of home we are looking for Franco, would be one with lots of patience and compassion for our sweet boy. Franco so badly wants to give affection, and we know through our past experiences with shy dogs, Franco will be a completely different dog in a few months time. So the family for him, should understand that and be willing to give him time.

Napoleon was discarded at the shelter a very neglected dog. Not only was he filthy and matted, he had a terrible ear infection and his eyes were neglected. Napoleon has dry eye in one eye and an ulcer in the other. This handsome boy is now a Lovebug and he has been freshly groomed and is on both ear and eye medication. He is feeling MUCH better! So far, it seems Napoleon has limited hearing and vision. He is settling into his foster home and will revisit our vet for another check up. Napoleon gets along with other dogs and has a sweet disposition and he loves to eat! Napoleon will make a great addition to a family who adores the Shih Tzu breed.

Name: Napoleon
Breed: Shih Tzu
Gender: Male
Age: 7 years
Weight: 16 lbs


Name: Elle Woods
Breed: Chihuahua Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 1
Weight: 7 lbs
Sweet Elle Woods came from a home who had too many dogs and allowed them to breed. Elle came to Lovebugs Rescue with one tiny puppy, Bruiser. She has been a wonderful mommy, but now it's her turn to find a home of her own. Elle has the most soulful eyes and rich chocolate coat. She is a long legged, slender gal who loves human affection.

Jackie Brown was dumped along with her 3 puppies in a deserted area. Thankfully a good samaritan found them and brought them to Lovebugs Rescue! Jackie Brown is as sweet as they come. She has a great disposition and is gentle and loving. She gets along great with other dogs and people a like. Jackie Brown walks great on leash and will do wonderful in a home looking for a girl with the most soulful golden eyes.

Name: Jackie Brown
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
Gender: Female
Age: 1 1/2 years
Weight: 45 lbs


Name: Flash
Breed: American Bulldog Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 4 years
Weight: 45 lbs
This handsome blue eyed boy was dumped in a deserted area along with a family of dogs, all which Lovebugs Rescue saved. Despite the obvious neglect this family endured, they are all very friendly and social and couldn't jump in the car fast enough when their ride showed up! Flash is a fun loving boy, who will do great in a home that enjoys taking their dog on daily outings. Flash walks great on leash and gets along great with other dogs and new people. Flash is a goofy, playful boy that loves toys! He is going to make a lucky family a forever loyal companion.

We met Lola in the shelter where her owners had surrendered her because they could no longer care for a dog. After being asked by shelter volunteers if we could rescue Lola, we of course obliged and Lola became a Lovebug. After a few days, it became apparent that Lola was very fearful of many things and as a result, we sought the help from our professional trainer. Lola and her foster mom worked very hard to understand her fears and figure out a way to help Lola feel more comfortable and reduce the stress she felt so she could relax and feel safe. Lola and her foster mom now have a wonderful relationship because of the training they received and we know Lola will bond well with her new special person but it will take some work with ongoing professional training. Lola is uncomfortable around other dogs and children. She will require a calm home without a lot of visitors and activity and no other pets or children. We will also require that Lolas new humans seek professional training with a positive reinforcement trainer. She is very food motivated and smart as a whip so she will continue to be an excellent student. Lola is an amazing dog with so much love to give and lets face it, she is just about the cutest dog ever! We are hopeful that with enough shares someone out there will fall madly in love with this precious girl and give her the home and training she needs so she can live the life every dog deserves.

Name: Lola Bubbles
Breed: Lhasa Apso
Gender: Female
Age: 8 years
Weight: 15 lbs


Name: Tiffi
Breed: Poodle
Gender: Female
Age: 5 1/2 years
Weight: 12 lbs
You could never tell by looking at her sweet face, but Tiffi, is suffering from a broken heart. Not only did Tiffi loose her home when her owner passed away, but she also has a heart defect that causes her to have a hard time catching her breath when she gets excited. After a visit with the cardiologist, we discovered that her condition cannot be surgically repaired so we have her on medications that help manage her condition. Because of Tiffi's medical needs, we are looking for a very special forever home with someone who can continue her medical care and will give her the love she deserves for the rest of her life. Tiffi is an amazing companion with so much love to give. We have no doubt that Tiffi's perfect person is out there somewhere. Please consider being Tiffi's hero and give her the comfort of knowing she has a special someone she can count on to love and cherish her.
