Name: Mc Dreamy
Breed: Terrier mix

This adorable crew found themselves in the shelter without a mommy or daddy. Thankfully we had a foster spot available to take in this unwanted family. Now Lovbugs, this crew is coming up with "pet names" for your significant other. Puppies are in a home with kids and other pooches, and enjoy spending their days frolicking in the garden or meeting up with some neighborhood children for a play date. Each cuter than the next, these sweeties are sure to make great family additions.

These babies started life on the wrong side of the tracks when they were born in a dirt lot in Santa Ana. Thankfully a business owner scooped them to safety and contacted Lovebugs Rescue for help. MacArthur, Warner, Flower, Garnsey, Bristol and Fairview are now off the streets and in the safe confines of a foster home. Pups are petite and very sweet natured. They love to play with their bounty of toys and run around with some of the other dogs in their foster home. Mommy is a white poodle, so pups take after their traveling salesman daddy!

Soon his show coat will grow back in and we hope to find Sully a new home that is familiar with the needs of a long coat dog. Sully is a gorgeous wheaten terrier mix and weighs about 20 lbs. We rescued Sully from the shelter on his last day, and boy is he sure glad we did!
