Name: Becky
Breed: Terrier mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 12 weeks
Weight: 5 lbs
Becky was surrendered to Lovebugs Rescue along with two of her siblings when the families dog had an accidental birth with a roaming stray dog. The first 5 puppies were given away before the family realized a rescue could help. The last three, came to Lovebugs Rescue. Becky is the last of the three searching for her forever home. Becky was recently diagnosed with a condition called megaesophagus, which means that she will need to sit up right when eating food and the water bowl in the home will need to be elevated. Becky is still growing, but we plan to buy her a very special chair that she can sit in while she eats. Becky is otherwise a playful happy puppy who is enjoying the royal treatment in her foster home! We are looking for a family, who thinks Becky is just as special as we do!

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.

With her bombshell good looks, tiny Tira just might be "Americas Next Top Model!" What this gal lacks in size she more than makes up for in personality. Tira is quite a social butterfly and enjoys meeting new people and doggies too. She is quickly getting the hang of the new potty routine in her foster home and is having a great time getting to know her foster brothers and sisters.

Spring and Autumn came to Lovebugs Rescue after their family moved and could not make accommodations for their furry family members. As you can image, the girls are lost without the only family they have ever known. The good news is, the girls are now Lovebugs and they have a second chance to find a forever family to call their very own. We would love to find a home where we can keep the girls together.

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.

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.

This tiny one eyed senior was discarded at the shelter freshly groomed with two bright red bows in her hair. At first glance, it appeared someone had lost their dog and surely someone would come for her. But no one did. Why? After a closer look, the reason is obvious. She has a large tumor hanging from her abdomen. Our best guess is her former owners could not afford her care and were hoping someone would rescue and take care of her. And that is exactly what Lovebugs Rescue will do. Goldilocks is now SAFE in a cozy foster home with Lovebugs Rescue and we will give her the best medical care possible. She is scheduled to have her tumor removed early 2016. If you would like to donate towards her surgery, please visit our donate tab.

ADOPTION PENDING: Darling Colbie came to us after she had escaped her former home several times and the family made not effort to find her. When a neighbor intervened, the family decided it was time for her to find a new home. We could not agree more! Coldly has an existing fracture to her back right leg which is causing her to have limited to no use of it. Our vet things she would be a candidate for FHO hip surgery which she would then be able to regain use to that leg. We would love to find a family that can take her through her recovery process once the surgery is done. Colbie gets along wonderfully with other dogs big and small and is playful and fun loving. Despite her injury, she zips around the house and up and down the stairs just fine!

Luna is a 4 year old, 30 pound, Wheaten/Border Terrier mix with a gentle, sweet spirit. She likes to get out for her daily walks and is perfectly trained on lead but prefers a slow pace with lots of sniffing. Luna gets along well with other dogs knows basic commands and is potty trained in her foster home. She can be on the reserved side when meeting new people so will need a patient, calm home. Since she is a little on the fearful side, she will do better in a home without young children. We know this quiet, sweetheart of a gal is going to be a wonderful companion so someone very lucky.

ADOPTION PENDING: Sara Lee was hanging out 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, gets along wonderfully with other dogs, and loves toys. Sara prefers the company of women over men, and would do best in a low key home.
