Last Update May 02 2016

Name: Snickers
Breed: Terrier Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 5 months
Weight: 7 lbs
The dessert tray has arrived, and this sugar packed puppy is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth! Snickers is an adorable, scruffy Chiweenie with a splash of terrier in him. He is currently in a foster home with kids and other dogs. This well rounded pooch will do great in any type of home environment and is on a regular routine in his foster home.

Love is in the air..This darling duo found themselves at the shelter when they were just days old. Because they didn't have a mom with them, bottle feeding was their only chance for survival. The shelter contacted Lovebugs Rescue and off we went! Romeo and Juliet have been receiving round the clock care with our bottle feeder, and now they are old enough to venture off on their own. We are now taking applications on this litter.

Name: Juliet
Breed: Spaniel Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 7 weeks
Weight: 2 lbs 4 ounces


Name: Marilyn
Breed: Pug Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 6 weeks
Weight: 2 lbs
Marilyn has been traveling with her mom on her political campaign, but now it's time for her to find a party of her own to join. Marilyn came to us when her family realized they had too many dogs. Sadly, as a result of inbreeding, Marilyn was born with Swimmers Syndrome. This causes her back legs to paddle similar to a turtle when she is on slippery surfaces. The good news is, this is a very treatable condition. By simply strengthening Marilyn's back legs, she will be able to walk normal on any kind of surface. Marilyn is doing so great in her therapy and already running and playing in the grass! We have no doubt this tiny tot is going to make a family a very special addition to their family!

Just in time for the Presidential election, Jacqueline and her two puppies cast their votes with Lovebugs Rescue. Jacqueline has been a great Republican figure in her family, but now it's time to join her campaign. Jacqueline is a playful gal, gets along great with other dogs and loves everyone she meets. We have no doubt this socialite will be the life of every party!

Name: Bruiser

Gender: Male
Age: 7 weeks
Weight: 1 lb
Little Bruiser came to us as a newborn puppy along with his mommy Elle Woods, when their former family realized they had too many dogs. Bruiser is a tiny tot weighing in at just 1 lb at 7 weeks old. He is a spunky, healthy playful little dude.

Sweet Elle Woods came from a home who had too many dogs and allowed them to breed. Elle came to Lovebugs Rescue with one tiny puppy, Bruiser. She has been a wonderful mommy, but now it's her turn to find a home of her own. Elle has the most soulful eyes and rich chocolate coat. She is a long legged, slender gal who loves human affection.

Name: Elle Woods
Breed: Chihuahua Mix

Age: 1 year
Weight: 7 lbs


Name: Rippa
Breed: Terrier Mix

She gets along great with other dogs and children. Rippa has already mastered her leash skills and enjoys going out for daily walks with her foster family. She would love to be part of a family with another dog that she can play and exercise with.

ADOPTION PENDING: Tiny Emma is a beautiful Pom with lots of energy. This little tot weighs in at a whopping 4 1/2 lbs and is in fact quite the socialite. She LOVES people (but will need an adult only home) and gets along great with other dogs. She will need a home with another little dog for her to play with and someone who can give her lots of attention. If you're a pom loving fanatic, Emma just might be your gal!

Name: Emma
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age: 2 years
Weight: 4 1/2 lbs

Clarissa is a 3 year old, 8 pound, Maltese mix with a sweet and loving disposition. She is great with humans of all ages and gets along well with other dogs too! Clarissa is an affectionate girl and likes to spend time with the ones she loves. She also enjoys getting out for her daily walks and meeting new friends along the way. Clarissa will make a wonderful companion to someone very lucky. We promise if you open your home and heart to this dainty darling, she will more than repay you with a never ending supply of tail wags and snuggles!

This dainty darling was brought to our attention by shelter volunteers. Sheeba had been hit by a car and suffered a broken pelvis and then found herself checked into the local shelter. One look at the smile on her face was all the convincing we needed to bring Sheeba into our pack of Lovebugs to recover and find her forever home. Sheeba is a 1 year old, 5 pound, Cairn Terrier mix with a sweet, affectionate disposition. Sheeba has been resting up and letting her pelvis heal and she is already walking steadily and is no longer in any pain. Our doc says she will make a full recovery! Although she is young, Sheeba has a calm, laid back energy about her and loves to sit on laps, snuggle and take naps. She gets along well with other dogs and humans of all ages. She is also looking forward to exploring the world but she will have to wait a little longer for outings on leash.

Name: Sheeba
Breed: Terrier Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 1 year
Weight: 5 lbs


Name: Clyde
Breed: Spaniel Mix

He has an outgoing personality and likes to play with other dogs and go for walks. He also rides well in the car. Clyde settles down easily and is comfortable relaxing in his crate or on your lap. He appears to be housebroken in his current foster home.

Winnie found herself on the euthanasia list at the shelter due to an eye condition. Thankfully Lovebugs Rescue came to her rescue and she is now safe in a foster home. Winnie made a trip to the eye specialist and turns out she only has dry eye. She will require ongoing inexpensive eye drops for the remainder of her life, but certainly nothing to end her life over. Winnie gets along with everyone she meets and will make a wonderful companion for someone who wants a very devoted and loving lap dog. She's at an age she won't need a lot of exercise other than following her human around.

Breed: Havanese Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 10 years
Weight: 13 lbs

Weight: 85 lbs
Riley is 85 lbs of pure perfection! This docile giant loves everyone he meets and has a submissive goofy personality. Riley is currently in a foster with two other large breeds, but we do know he gets along with small dogs and children as well. Riley does great on trail runs and would do good in an active family as he is still young and spry. Riley appears to be a blend of Vizsla & Rhodesian with maybe a splash of Great Dane as he is very tall and lanky.

Tiny Zoey came from a home that could no longer care for her. She is a petite playful gal that gets along great with everyone she meets. She has picked up on her potty routine in her foster home and walks great on leash.

ADOPTION PENDING: Domino was turned into the Coachella shelter with a terrible eye injury. Lovebugs Rescue answered a shelter plea and took Domino in and gave him the eye surgery he needed.

Name: Flash
Breed: American Bulldog Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 4 years

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 came to us with a painful eye condition called Entropion, which means the eyelid is inverted and his eyelashes rub against his eyeballs. We plan to give him the surgery to correct this when he is neutered. Flash is going to make a lucky family a forever loyal companion.

Jackie Brown was dumped along with her 3 puppies in a deserted area. Thankfully a good samaritan found them and brought them to Lovebugs Rescue! Jackie Brown is as sweet as they come. She has a great disposition and is gentle and loving. She gets along great with other dogs and people a like.

Name: Buddy
Breed: Pekingese

Age: 10 years

Buddy lost his home after his owner passed away in his presence. Sadly, there were no provisions made for Buddy in his owners absence. The good news is, Buddy is now a Lovebug and has a second chance to find a forever family. Buddy is a mellow guy, and is just looking for a lap to snuggle on. He gets along great with other dogs and new people. Buddy is a handsome purebred Pekingese and is about 10 years old.

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: 8 years
Weight: 15 lbs


Name: Ollie
Breed: Lhasa Apso Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 8 years
Weight: 28 lbs
If you're looking for a guard dog, Ollie is not your guy. Why? Because Ollie eagerly welcomes everyone into your home! This fun loving pooch not only loves everyone he meets, he loves his bounty of toys. Ollie is a big teddy bear who chews, throws, catches and hides his toys. Ollie is hard of hearing, but not deaf. This charming fellow is house trained and would love too be close to his new owner. Ollie is on the easy going side and is a low key dog.

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.

Name: Tiffi
Breed: Poodle
Gender: Female
Age: 5 1/2 years
Weight: 12 lbs


Name: Bree
Breed: German Shepherd Dog Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 1 year
Weight: 50 lbs
Bree was surrendered to the Riverside shelter along with her 3 puppies who have all since been adopted. At first sight of Bree, neglect was the first thing that came to mind. She was covered in ticks and feces, and grossly underweight. Thankfully, Lovebugs was able to take in the entire family and give them the TLC they so desparately needed. Bree is now taking baby steps in her foster home to learn to become a dog again. Bree is very submissive and is good with other dogs and people alike, but she is extremly shy. She will require a family who is patient and will allow her to come around in her own time. She is already progressing so much in her foster home and learning to trust and begin to play with toys. We have no doubt Bree will make a great addition to a family looking for a very special gal to follow them to the ends of the Earth.
