Name: Jewel
Breed: Yorkie mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 1 1/2 years
Weight: 4 1/2 lbs
Jewel is truly a one in a million gem of a gal. This pint sized princess has it all, good looks and personality to match. She is sweet and affectionate and seems to love everyone she meets. Jewel is a 4 ½ pound, 1 ½ year old, mix of Yorkie and Papillon. The ideal home for our precious Jewel would be with someone who understands the needs of very small dogs and has lots of time to devote to her happiness and safety. Due to her tiny size, she will do best in a home with older children or adults only.

Opal, Jade, Jasper, Onyx and Pearl are as precious as their names imply. Mom is a very petite Yorkie mix and looks like daddy must have been a teeny-tiny, handsome stranger. At nearly 7 weeks old, these pups weigh in at just barely a pound. We expect these pint-sized darlings to be in the 5 pound range when fully grown and will be ready for their new homes sometime in June. We are taking applications for pre-adoption now so the pups will all have families to call their very own when they are ready to move on. The ideal home for our precious gems would be with someone who understands the needs of very small dogs and has lots of time to devote to their socialization and safety. Due to their tiny size, they will do best in a home with older children or adults only.

Gender: Female
Age Est: 7 weeks
Weight: 5 lbs
These eight little puppies, Aqua Fresca, Horchata, Dos Equis, Margarita, Medelo, Mojito, Sangria, and Sol, are the new pups in town. They came to us from across the border, in the spirited and fun-loving town of Tijuana, Mexico. Like most puppies, they love to play in the sun and run in the grass. Although they’re still adjusting to Southern California life, these puppies are now looking for their forever home.

Name: Dos Equis
Breed: Spaniel mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 7 weeks
Weight: 5 lbs


Name: Chimp
Breed: Schnauzer/Scottie mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 3 months
Weight: 7 lbs
Chimp was turned in to the shelter by his former owners because he was born with a deformed nose causing him to have difficulty breathing. Our vet performed a surgery to correct the defect and with a little more growing, Chimp's prognosis is great. Now Chimp is ready to land the home of his dreams! He is still a pup so is learning about potty training and working on getting into a routine. Chimp is great with kiddos and adults alike. He is crate and potty trained and walks great on leash!

Forest was discarded at the shelter along with his brother and sister. He is a very sweet natured boy and his coat is soft and snuggly. Forest will do great in any type of home setting. He is on the mellow side and gets along great with other dogs.

Name: Forest
Breed: Cockapoo mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 3 months
Weight: 7 lbs


Name: Carson
Breed: Pom/Spaniel mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 12 weeks
Weight: 2 lbs 2 ounces
DEAF: Carson is the runt of Cora's Downton Abbey litter weighing in at half the size of his litter mates. He has been held back for medical observation, but now we have our medical mystery solved so he is available for adoption. First off, Carson is deaf so will need a home that is willing to use sign language with him. We have had a few deaf puppies in the rescue and they respond very well to hand signals. His foster home has already begun this process with him. Secondly, Carson was born with a birth defect called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. What this means is that parts of the cerebellum have not completely developed. Some symptoms of this are head bobbing, unable to judge distance, unsteadiness or clumsiness. Because of this condition, Carson will thrive in a home with another dog to use as a role model. Carson is otherwise a healthy, happy puppy. He can run and play, eat and drink on his own and already uses the potty pad to do his business. And did we mention he is simply ADORABLE! Carson is a special little guy who is deserving of a very special family to call his own.

Sybil is an adorable puppy from Cora's Downton Abbey litter. She is very mellow and easy going and we have no idea why she hasn't been snatched up yet! Sybil looks almost like a chocolate pomeranian now that her ears have gone up (we will be getting some updated photos of her soon). Her coat is very thick and soft, like her mama's. Sybil is on the submissive side and is currently in a foster home with her brother Carson, who is very tiny - she takes great care of him and we would love it if a family would consider adopting them together. But we will consider separate homes for both dogs. They are both very sweet natured puppies.

Name: Lady Sybil
Breed: Pom/Spaniel mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 12 weeks
Weight: 5 lbs


Name: Cora
Breed: Mixed breed
Gender: Female
Age Est: 2 years
Weight: 15 lbs
Downton Abbey has been a wonderful place for Cora to raise her aristocratic clan but it is now time for them to leave the Yorkshire countryside and find estates of their own so Cora can rest and relax. This lovely lady is reserved and calm and wants nothing more than to be cuddled and pampered by the ones she loves. Cora has mastered the potty routine in her foster home and gets along well with other dogs. We have no doubt that this incredible beauty will make an amazing canine companion to someone very special.

Bowser was turned into the shelter as a stray and sadly, this boy suffered an injury a while back with his front right leg, that was never attended to medically. Our vet determined that it's not causing Bowser any pain and he is getting some use out of it, so they don't foresee it needing further medical attention at this point. Bowser is crate trained, gets along great with everyone he meets, people and other dogs. He is an adorable scruffy terrier mix, and we are so happy we can provide him with the best care possible while he waits for his forever family to fall in love with him!

Name: Bowser
Breed: Terri-poo
Gender: Male
Age Est: 2 years
Weight: 24 lbs


Name: Fancy Pants
Breed: Maltese
Gender: Female
Age Est: 8 years
Weight: 9 lbs
Little Miss Fancy Pants is a sweet and happy-go-lucky gal who is looking for a forever home to call her own. Fancy is great with other dogs, has mastered the potty routine in her foster home and loves to get out for her daily walks. Poor Fancy was so matted and filthy when she came to us that she got her summer cut a little earlier than usual. We have no doubt she will have her beautiful white fluffy coat back very soon. The ideal home for our little Fancy Pants would be with someone who understands the grooming needs of this breed and has lots of time to devote to making sure she is happy and well cared for.

Adorable Tiko was discarded at the shelter without an owner in sight. This boy was very shy in the shelter environment, so they asked if we could help him out. We gladly said yes! Tiko gets along great with new people and other dogs and has really blossomed in his foster home. He is crate trained, walks well on leash and is adorably soft and snuggly.

Name: Tiko
Breed: Maltese mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 1 year
Weight: 15 lbs


Name: Sara Lee
Breed: Jack Russell mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 1 year
Weight: 8 lbs
Sara Lee was hanging behind a bakery in Santa Ana roaming as a stray, when one day she gave birth to 4 puppies. Animal Control was called but Sara took off when they arrived. Thankfully, another rescue was able to catch her and we were able to reunite the family with Lovebugs Rescue. Sara has wrapped up mommy duties, and now is ready to find a home to call her own. Having been on the run as a stray for so long, Sara is adapting well to domestic life. She walks great on leash, and gets along great with other dogs. She is a little tentative when meeting new people, but we expect that to subside over time as she gets more socialization in her foster home.

Sweet Bessie was being given away by her former owners on craig's list. Many of you know just how dangerous that can be for dogs. Thankfully, Lovebugs stepped in and now Bessie is safe in a foster home while she looks for a new home. Bessie is a very sweet gal. She is not only gorgeous, Bessie loves everyone she meets. Bessie is going to be a great addition to just about any type of home.

Name: Bessie
Breed: Havanese mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 2 1/2 years
Weight: 17 lbs


Name: Nina
Breed: Shih Tzu
Gender: Female
Age Est: 2 years
Weight: 15 lbs
We found this adorable little gal in shelter after she had been turned in as a stay. We have no idea how someone let this sweet girl out of their sight. Nina loves everyone she meets and is a wonderful little companion. Nina got a very short summer hair cut during her stay at the shelter, but we promise her show coat will grow back in by winter. Nina is house trained, walks great on leash and gets along well new people.

We found this handsome young man patiently waiting for his chance at freedom. On look at his big brown eyes and we put him in the car and he joined the Lovebugs pack. Fritzy is a 2 year old, 10.5 pound, Poodle/Havanese mix who is looking for someone extra special to love. Fritzy is crate and potty trained in his foster home, walks well on leash and enjoys the company of canines and humans alike.

Name: Fritzy
Breed: Havenese mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 2 years
Weight: 10 1/2 lbs


Name: Lollipop
Breed: Yorkie
Gender: Female
Age Est: 3 years
Weight: 5 lbs
Who couldn't fall in love with this little sweetie pie? We certainly did the moment we saw Lollipop hiding in the back of her kennel at the shelter. Extremely underweight and shy and obviously used for breeding and then dumped in the shelter when she was no longer of use. Lollipop is a quiet and sweet gal that gets along well with other dogs and humans alike and is both crate and potty pad trained in her foster home. The ideal home for Lollipop would be on the calm side without a lot of commotion or young children.

We found this little heart throb sitting in the animal shelter without an owner in sight. Ricky is a 6 year old, 4 pound, Chihuahua with personality plus! This little guy walks well on leash, is house trained and has easily adjusted to warming laps in his foster home. Ricky is tentative with meeting new people or with any sudden quick movements. He will require a calm household with an owner that is understanding that he's a sensitive little guy. Ricky is sure to reward by being a loyal companion.

Name: Ricky
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Male
Age Est: 6 years
Weight: 4 lbs


Name: Tango
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 1 1/2 years
Weight: 6 lbs
Tango was discarded at the shelter by her former owner with 4 tiny puppies (all whom have been adopted). Tango has mastered her routine of "Mom of the Year" but is now ready for her solo act. Tango has better moves than any dancer we've met. Her signature move is to paw at you for more belly rubs! And did we mention her costume is the most unique we have seen? Her beautiful brindle markings make this ballroom beauty a show stopper! Tango is great with other dogs, crate trained and is a great lap warmer.

Margo was rescued from the shelter where she was turned in as a stray. This dainty darling tops the charts at a whopping 3 lbs 7 ounces! Margo is the perfect co-pilot to take on daily outings. She is great with the other dogs in her foster home, walks good on leash and seems to be potty trained.

Name: Margo
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Female
Age Est: 5 years
Weight: 3 lbs 7 ounces


Name: Annie
Breed: Spaniel mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 4 years
Weight: 8 lbs
Annie is a petite little thing at barely 8 pounds. Our best guess is that she is a mix of Papillon and Spaniel. Annie is a quiet girl who will do best in a calm household with or without other dogs. She does well on leash and gets very excited when she sees it. She is quickly mastering her new potty routine and is crate trained as well.

Sea Treasure washed ashore with her pack of pirate pups, when they took a terrible detour and ended up at the shelter. Thankfully, Lovebugs Rescue was able to send out an SOS for the entire family. Sea Treasure is a tiny gal and has been a great mom to her family. But now it's finally her time to find a family to call her own. Sea Treasure is a lovable little lap dog and is getting socialization by going for regular walks with her foster family.

Name: Sea Treasure
Breed: Yorkie mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 1 year
Weight: 7 lbs


Name: Lola Bubbles
Breed: Lhasa Apso mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 7 years
Weight: 15 lbs
Miss Lola Bubbles found herself checked into the local animal shelter by a family that could no longer care for her. Lola is extremely smart and has mastered most of her basic commands. Lola responds very easily to positive reinforcement training and would be an excellent candidate for advanced training. She gets bonds with and gets attached to her humans very quickly and would prefer not to share her families attention with other pets. Lola will do best in a family with a strong pack leader and an adult only home who is willing to continue working with a trainer. Lola and her foster mom have learned a great deal from one another with the help of a professional trainer. We promise that given the chance, Lola Bubbles will be an amazing companion to someone very special.

Abbey Rose was discarded at a high kill shelter with babies on board. Thankfully, Lovebugs Rescue scooped her to safety so she could have her 6 puppies in foster care. Abbey Rose has been an amazing mommy and now it's finally time for her to find a family to call her own. Abbey Rose is scruffy and the most soulful brown eyes. She is going to make a great addition to a family looking for a sweet lady to add to their family!

Name: Abbey Rose
Breed: Terrier mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 2 years
Weight: 12 lbs
