Gia

Name:

Gia

Breed:

Pit Bull Terrier

Gender:

Female

Weight:

48 lbs

Age:

1 1/2 years

Gia was an urgent save out of SEACCA within moments of her scheduling to be euthanized for space. We are so glad we were able to scoop her to safety just in time! Gia is a 1 1/2 year old, 48 lb “pocket” Pittie who is compact in size but is a strong girl. She’s also super sweet and silly. You may not always see it but she has an award winning smile to go with her personality. She loves kisses, cuddles and belly rubs and is friendly with new people she meets. Gia is both crate and potty trained and enjoys going for walks and rolling in the grass or basking in the sunshine. She likes playing with other dogs she knows, but she’d also be fine being a one and only. Gia has a medium energy level and is happiest when following her humans around the house. An ideal home for Gia would be one that is looking for a loving, affectionate gal and a family who has a love for, and experience with the Pittie breed.

Glimmer

Name:

Glimmer

Breed:

Dachshund

Gender:

Female

Weight:

11 lbs

Age:

2 years

Glimmer came to Lovebugs Rescue after her and several other dogs were seen being dumped, with one being hit by a car and killed. Thankfully Glimmer was scooped up to safety. She is very shy initially and needs a slow warm up to new people, but her tail will be wagging once she knows her people a little better. She loves other dogs and would benefit being in a home with another pooch to pal around with. Glimmer did come to us with some cracked front teeth, which have since been removed. We don’t know what her past was like, but she’s now onto a bright new future ahead! Glimmer is a 2 year old 11 lb Dachshund/Chihuahua mix and has that adorable low rider build. An ideal home for her would be one that is on the quiet side without a lot of coming and going. Also a secure outdoor spot she can go potty.

Chesapeake

Name:

Chesapeake

Breed:

Dachshund

Gender:

Male

Weight:

26 lbs

Age:

7 years

Chesapeake was surrendered to the shelter by his former owner. He caught the eye of one of our fosters who loves the silver sweeties, and she scooped him to safety. Chesapeake immediately made himself at home and integrated himself in the day to day life with the other dogs. Chesapeake is well mannered around the house, rides well in the car and is pretty low key. He would prefer a home that is on the more mellow side with not a ton of coming and going and he’s not a fan of kitty cats. Chesapeake loves to give kisses and is pretty social with new people he meets after a tiny warm up. He would benefit from a little one on one leash work and confidence building. He’s super food motivated and will happily take chicken or cheese as a special treat. Chesapeake is a 7 years 26 lb Dachshund mix. He’s going to make a wonderful addition for a family looking for a salt and pepper sweetie. Could that be you?

Berkshire was rescued from the San Bernardino shelter after he was turned in as a stray with his siblings. Berkshire is super handsome with his tall lean build and his coat is growing in longer. He even has a wavy coat on his back. Berki loves to follow his foster mommy around the house and is her sidekick while working from home. He’s a good listener and will tilt his head when you are talking to him. He walks great on leash and loves other dogs and people he meets on his adventures. He sleeps like a dream in his pen and goes out to the back yard to potty in the grass. His favorite toy is his squeaky froggy and and his favorite saying is “good boi”.

Age:

1 1/2 years

PENDING MEET AND GREET, TAKING BACK UP APPS ONLY: Coco is a sweet natured gal who came to us terribly matted. She now has a short coat, but her gorgeous salt and pepper locks will grow back in soon! Coco is dog and cat friendly. She’s a tiny bit shy at first, but she has a goofy playful spirt and loves doing zoomies with her fur friend kitty in her foster home. Coco will require a secure home, preferable with some yard space and we’d think she would prefer to have another dog or cat in the home that she can hang out with. Coco will benefit overall from a little bit of confidence building, but she’s already come such a far way in the short time we’ve had her! Coco is a 1 1/2 year old, 17 lb Poodle mix (cockapoo, havapoo or shipoo guessing).

PENDING ADOPTION: Indy is a 6 year old 30 lb French Bulldog that was abandoned at a groomers. She clearly has been used for breeding the past and came to us with crusty skin, eyes and a few scabby spots on her back legs. She’s really thrived in her foster home and her eyes look glossy again with daily eyedrops. She did have two small masses taken off her on leg, which turned out to be mast cell tumors. The good news is our vet cleared the margins and there was no mast cells in her lymph nodes. Inday is an absolute sweetheart. She gets along with everyone she meets, dogs and humans. She also ignores kitty cats. Indy loves to carry her “baby stuffed toys” around the house. She’s a well mannered gal and is going to make a french bulldog lover very happy!

Weight:

6 lbs

Age:

1 year

Dixie is a little shy initially, but she warms up quickly and loves following the other small dogs around in her foster home. She is very affectionate with her people and we think she will acclimate nicely to a home who has a love for the Chihuahua breed.

She couldn’t be any more darling with her big antenna ears and little white beard. She appears to be housebroken and has a spunky sassy side to her once she gets comfortable. Dixie would love for her family to be home a little more often than not. She has been fully vetted and is now ready to join her home.
