Bert and Ernie were part of an accidental litter of 9 pups.

They are currently in a foster home with both kids and dogs and will make a great addition to just about any type of home environment.

Marjoram is a darling terri poo with personality plus! She gets along with other dogs and new people she meets. Marjoram was turned into the shelter along with her siblings after being exposed to the PARVO virus. After spending a few days at the vet on supportive care, Marjoram has made a complete recovery and is ready to find her forever lap to snuggle on.

Darling Poppy came to us from a breeder who was downsizing. Poppy is an gentle purebred Yorkshire Terrier who is on the low key side and enjoys the company of her foster family. She is docile in nature, but gets an extra spunk in her step if some turkey is up for grabs! Poppy walks great on leash and easily settles in on her own if her family needs to leave for a few hours. Poppy will make a great addition to a Yorkie loving family!

This handsome scruffy boy found himself in the shelter without an owner in sight. Thankfully, Lovebugs Rescue was able to take him under our wing. Wesley is a 7 lb, 5 year old Jack Russell mix who is very sweet and gets along well with other dogs. Wesley enjoys going for walks and equally enjoys a nice long snuggle with his human.

Name: Sophie Jean
Breed: Schnauzer Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 10 years
Weight: 18 lbs
We found Miss Sophie Jean at the shelter where she had been sitting for a month patiently waiting for her owners to come looking for her. Sadly, they never did but Lovebugs is happy to be able to step in and help this sweet gal on her journey to find the family she was always meant to be part of. Sophie Jean is a 10 year young, 18 pound, Schnauzer mix with charm and personality plus! This gal has it all! She is sweet and affectionate, house trained in her foster home and knows most of her basic commands. Sophie Jean gets along well with other dogs and likes their company. She is curious when meeting new canines and always has a tail wag and an excited smile when out on her walks making new friends in the neighborhood. When meeting Sophie Jean, you would never guess that she is a senior gal. She is a fun-loving gal that still has a joyful spirit and eagerly engages with humans of all ages. We know that Sophie Jean is an extraordinary dog and will make an amazing companion to someone very special.

We have no idea how this dainty darling ended up the shelter, but we are sure glad we were able to scoop her up to safety. Sallie is a very petite 4 lb gal and is as sweet as they come. Sallie will do great in a home experienced with very tiny breeds. She is a perfect purse pooch to tote around town with!

Gender: Female
Age: 2 years
Weight: 4 lbs


Name: Charlie
Breed: Jack Russell Terrier Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 2 years
Weight: 13 lbs
This handsome boy found himself in the scary shelter without an owner in sight. He caught the eye of a Lovebugs foster home, and now shelter days are behind him. Charlie is a 2 year old, 13 lb Jack Russell Terrier mix. He is well manned and gets along well with other dogs and new people. He's the perfect pooch to take around town or out for a hike. This fun packed pooch will be sure to be your loyal shadow.

CeeCee was surrendered to Lovebugs Rescue when her family could no longer keep her. She was originally adopted by her family from the Orange shelter, then a few years later they came to return her. Thankfully the OC Shelter intervention program was able to connect the family with Lovebugs Rescue so CeeCee did not have to go to the shelter a second time. CeeCee is a beautiful Rat Terrier mix with a sleek tuxedo coat. She is on the shy side, so will do best in a patient home who will continue to socialize her. We have no doubt CeeCee is going to make a very loving, loyal family member to her next family!

Breed: Rat Terrier Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 3 years

Name: Fonzy
Breed: Tibetan Spaniel
Gender: Male
Age: 5 years
Weight: 20 lbs
This handsome young man has a new outlook on life thanks to Lovebugs Rescue. Fonzy had two very unattractive “cherry eyes” that have been surgically repaired and now his beautiful eyes can truly be the windows to his soul. Fonzy is a 5 year old, 20 pound, Tibetan Terrier mix. He likes the company of other dogs, walks well on leash and is quickly mastering the potty routine in his foster home. Fonzy is a gentle sweet dog who will make a great addition to a family!

That hair though! This little scruff muffin found herself in the scary shelter without an owner in sight. We can only imagine the life Winkie lived before coming to Lovebugs Rescue. Winkie is shy when meeting new people, but will warm up to her special someone. She gets along wonderfully with other dogs and is both crate and potty trained in her foster home. Winkie enjoys laying in warm sun spots throughout her foster home and playing with the other small pooches. She will do best in a home on the low key quiet side who has the patience to allow her to warm up. We promise, she will give the best snuggles in town!

Name: Winkie
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 3 years
Weight: 7 lbs


Name: Honey
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age: 9 months
Weight: 10 lbs
This beautiful red head loves everyone she meets! Honey was surrendered to Lovebugs Rescue by her former owner because she has a liver shunt. The way Honey's shunt is positioned, she is not a candidate for surgery. The good news is there are medications which can help Honey live a normal life which she is tolerating well. Honey is great with other dogs and she will make a wonderful addition to a Pomeranian lover!

Mrs. Nesbit was found as a stray and turned into the Irvine Animal Care Center. The shelter called Lovebugs Rescue for help, because Mrs. Nesbit needed to have luxating patella surgery on her back knee. This is an expensive surgery, but we did not hesitate to bring her into our rescue. Mrs. Nesbit has had a successful surgery and is now ready for her forever home. Mrs. Nesbit loves other dogs and loves her special human people. She is a spunky, fun loving spit fire that is so scruffy and adorable! She's the prefect little pooch to tote around town with!

Name: Mrs. Nesbit
Breed: Terrier Mix
Gender: Female

Name: Koko Bella
Breed: Shih Tzu
Gender: Female
Age: 8 years
Weight: 16 lbs
Koko Bella came to us from her former family, who could no longer keep her. This purebred Shih Tzu is as gentle and low key as they come. She walks great on leash, is great with other dogs and new people she meets. Koko Bella enjoys her daily walks and appears to be fully house trained in her foster home. You can't ask for a better dog!

We are not certain if Kidd is a Chihuahua or a Meerkat, but either way, he is adorable! Kidd is shy when meeting new people, but once he knows you he is a goofy boy. Kidd loves playing with toys and enjoys the company of his furry foster friends. He walks great on leash and is small enough to tote around in a doggie pouch. Kidd has also mastering several training techniques such as touch. We have no doubt that Kidd is going to make a wonderful addition to a family looking for a silly boy to be their tiny shadow.

Name: Kidd
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Male
Age: 1 1/2 years
Weight: 4 lbs


Name: Stuart Little
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Male
Age: 12 years
Weight: 5 lbs
This tiny tot was discarded at the shelter without an owner in sight. Stuart Little is a purebred Pomeranian weighing in at just 5 lbs. Stuart is a happy little man who gets along with everyone he meets. We'd love to find a loving home where Stuart can spend his golden years being treated as a pampered prince. Stuart is fairly healthy, however will have life long alopecia (hair loss) and has had a few seizures since coming to the rescue. So he is currently taking a daily medication for that which he will need to continue.

This handsome gent was sadly surrendered to the shelter by his former owner. We are guessing they could not afford his medical care. Tobi is a 13 year old 9 lb Shih Tzu mix with the most soulful eyes. We can only imagine the confusion this poor boy must have felt losing the only family he ever knew. Tobi has some medical issues and will likely not be a candidate for adoption. Tobi is in mid stages of kidney failure. He also has some spinal compression, but is able to walk around just fine. Tobi is in need of a neuter and a dental, but we are not able to put him under anesthesia due to his prognosis. Kidney patients generally tend to lose their appetite and lose weight. He is on a special diet and currently eating fairly well. Tobi LOVES the company of other dogs and is very sweet natured with new people he meets.

Name: Tobi
Breed: Shih Tzu Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 13 years
Weight: 9 lbs


Name: Tiffi
Breed: Poodle
Gender: Female
Age: 7 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.

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: 10 years
Weight: 15 lbs
