This is expected to heal with a 4 to 6 week splint. The splint has not slowed Bono down and he is a spunky little dude and quite the talker! Bono does great with other dogs and new people he meets.

This darling is as sweet and spunky as they come! Bella Blue was found being attacked by crows while she had a tight shoe lace around her neck. Bella is now safe with Lovebugs Rescue.

Breed: Poodle Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 2 years
Weight: 16 lbs
Earl was found as a stray in Earlimart, CA by a good samaritan. She saw Earl wedged in a corner of a gas station between a table and a wall. He was covered in painful mats, while temperatures that day reached 110. Thankfully the lady scooped Earl up and contacted rescues. Earl is now a Lovebug and his days of abandonment are over. Earl's mats have been shaved, and his coat is starting to grow back in nicely. He does still have some skin irritation and vetting with respect to his eye, which should only be temporary. Earl is a very sweet gentle dog and gets along with new people, dogs, cats, kids - you name it. He is just so thankful to be rescued!

Snowball is a soft and snuggly boy who is very lovable and sweet natured. He came to us matted and neglected, but that's nothing a quick spa day couldn't fix. Now he is learning the ropes in his foster home and loves to be close to the ones he loves.

He enjoys the company of other dogs and the people he loves. Kidd walks like a show dog on leash and enjoys getting out for daily adventures. Kidd will equally entertain himself with his bounty of toys and will give his new family a laugh or two with his silly playful style. Kidd is portable and can go just about anywhere with his family, but is also fine chilling at home while his family is out. Kidd is a very loyal, connected pooch and will follow his family to the end of the Earth. Could that be you?

Mira is a 1 year old, 12 pound, Cairn Terrier Mix who ended up in the animal shelter with a belly full of babies. Now that she has wrapped up mommy duties and all of her pups have found their forever homes, it is time for Mira to start the journey to find a new family of her very own. Mira is timid when meeting new people and will need a calm home with patient humans to help her feel comfortable at her own pace. She has blossomed in her foster home and has become the ever-present shadow and joyful spirit, following her foster mommy’s every move. Mira is still working on building confidence when walking on leash. She did not likely have much socialization before she became a Lovebug so we have gone very slowly to help her feel comfortable with each new thing she experiences. Once she settles in, Mira is a pretty easy going girl who enjoys snuggles, exploring in the yard and an occasional case of the “zoomies” running around and acting silly. She is potty trained in her foster home making that part of her transition a breeze.

Name: Mira
Breed: Cairn Terrier Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 1 year
Weight: 12 lbs


Name: Pippi
Breed: Chihuahua Mix

She appears to be house trained and walks well on leash. Pippi has a gorgeous red long coat and prances around her foster home like a show dog.

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.

Name: Wally
Breed: Poodle Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 5 years
Weight: 35 lbs
Wally was surrendered to Lovebugs Rescue when his former family could no longer keep him. Wally came to us very matted, and now he has a fresh short cut so his soft curly locks can grow back in. Wally is good with other dogs and new people he meets. He walks well on leash and is crate trained.

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

Name: Honey
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age: 9 months
Weight: 8 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 and they could not afford further medical diagnosis. Honey has since had a CT scan and and the way Honey's shunt is positioned, she is not a candidate for surgery. The good news is, Honey is tolerating the medication and special diet well. You'd never know anything was wrong with her! Honey is a playful gal with a fun spirit. She walks like a show dog on lead and is learning the routine in her foster home. Honey does great with other dogs and 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: Bailey
Breed: Bichon Frise Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 6 years
Weight: 23 lbs
This portly fella was adopted as a puppy from Lovebugs Rescue when he was just 8 weeks old. Sadly, his mom has become ill and needed to give Bailey back to our rescue. Bailey has been very loved in his home and loves to ride in the car and go on adventures. He is on the low key side, but could stand to lose a few pounds by incorporating regular walks and a clean diet into his routine.

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: Tobi
Breed: Shih Tzu Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 13 years
Weight: 9 lbs
FOREVER LOVEBUG: 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 is in mid stages of kidney failure and also has some spinal compression. Tobi is in a forever foster with another dog to pal around with. He will be pampered like a prince for the time he has left with us.

FOREVER LOVEBUG: 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, she is in a very special forever foster 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.
