Last Update Sept 25 2016

Name: Chandler
Breed: Spaniel Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 5 weeks
Weight: 1 lb 10 ounces
One day a homeless man came into one of our foster's place of work carrying this tiny puppy. He was selling him for $10. Boy did he walk into the right place at the right time because this tiny tot is now a Lovebugs Rescue pup. Chandler came to us at maybe 4 weeks old. He was just learning to walk and his teeth hadn't began to come in yet. Way too soon to be taken from his mama, and we still wonder, what happened to her? Now at 5 weeks old and 1 lb 10 ounces, Chandler is tiny but mighty. He's starting to become more active and play with toys much larger than him! We are now taking applications for Chandler, however he won't be ready to officially go home until he is 8 weeks old

Mimi was surrendered to our rescue by her former family who could no longer care for her. Her previous household was on the busy side with toddlers, and as a result, Mimi is a wee bit on the timid side. We'd love to find a home on the quiet side so Mimi can start to blossom into the confident little dog we know she will become with the right socialization. Mimi is playful and enjoys the company of other dogs and is already making strides simply by changing her environment. Mimi is crate trained and enjoys going for walks.

Name: Austin
Breed: Jack Russell Terrier Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 8 months

Austin is a happy silly boy who found himself at the shelter without an owner in sight. He is full of life and ready to please. Austin will do great with an active family who enjoys taking their dogs on regular outings. Austin gets along great with other dogs and walks well on leash.

The big, scary shelter is no place for a teeny tiny pooch so when we saw little Lacey locked in a kennel between big noisy dogs, we scooped her up and put her in a safe and loving foster home so we can help her find the perfect forever family. Lacey is a 3 ½ pound, 4 year old, purebred Chihuahua with beautiful eyes and soft silky coat. She does well with other dogs her size but larger dogs are a little intimidating for her. Lacey is friendly and curious and likes to explore her surroundings. The ideal home would be with someone who has had tiny dogs and understands the safety precautions necessary to keep them safe.

Name: Lacey
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Female
Age: 4 years
Weight: 3 1/2 lbs


Name: Bam Bam
Breed: Havanese Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 2 1/2 years
Weight: 22 lbs
Bam Bam was discarded at the shelter by his former owners. We will never understand why a family would give up on this handsome boy, but he is now a Lovebugs Rescue pooch in search of his forever home. Bam Bam is a 22 lb, 2 1/2 year old Wheaten/Havanese mix. He is crate trained, gets along well with other dogs and enjoys his daily walks. Bam Bam is a playful fellow and will do great in a home with another dog to pal around with.

Carmela is a 3 year old 30 lb purebred Cocker Spaniel who came to Lovebugs Rescue terribly matted and flea infested. With a very short cut, Carmela's coat is not the only thing starting over. She is now a Lovebug and in search of a fabulous new family to call her own. Carmela gets along great with other dogs, is quiet, gentle and loves her daily walks.

Name: Newman
Breed: Bichon Frise Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 2 years
Weight: 15 lbs
We think Newman is one handsome fellow but he did not start out that way. When he first came to our rescue, he was filthy and painfully matted but after a day at the doggie spa, he has a whole new leash on life! Newman is a 2 year old, 15 pound, Bichon/Poodle mix. Newman is great with other dogs, loves his daily walks and thinks kiddos are pretty awesome too! He can be slightly timid when meeting new people but with a pocket full of treats and a little time, Newman will be well on his way to becoming your new best friend. He is crate trained in his foster home and quickly getting the hang of his new potty routine. Newman is very food motivated and is having fun learning basic commands. He is so smart that when taken to obedience class, he will quickly become the star pupil and teachers pet!

This adorable little ball of fluff lost her home after her family had some changes in their lives. Penny is a 12 pound, 4 year old, Maltese/Poodle mix with a heart of gold. She can be initially timid when meeting new people but in just a short time will become your little shadow following your every move. Penny gets along well with other dogs and her ideal home would have another sweet natured pup to pall around with. Since she is on the timid side, we are not recommending a home with young kiddos. Penny is crate trained in her foster home and walks very well on leash. She just loves getting out for her daily cruise through the neighborhood and taking in all the sights and sniffs.

Name: Penny
Breed: Maltese Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 4 years

Billy the Kid was on his way into the shelter, but thanks to the OC Shelter Intervention program, he was diverted and became a Lovebugs Rescue pooch. And what a Lovebug this little guy is! We have no idea why his family gave up on him, but we are happy to give him a second chance on finding a great family. Billy the Kid walks great on leash, gets along with other dogs, is crate trained and is an all around nice little doggie.

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.

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.

This tiny boy found himself in the scary shelter without an owner in sight. Ikey had not been well cared for in his previous life, however that is all in the past now. Ikey came to us underweight with sores all over his ears. Thankfully he is in one of our amazing foster homes who is tending to his every need, and he is looking so much better! Ikey would do best in a home on the quiet side as he can be very shy when meeting new humans.

Name: Tuck
Breed: Chihuahua

Tuck looks as though he has missed several meals in his previous life, however those days are over. Tuck is now a Lovebug and will recieve the best care possible. Tuck is a 4 lb, 7 year old Chihuahua who is just as friendly as he is handsome. He is outgoing and playful and gets along great with other dogs.

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.

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

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.
