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.

Gender: Male
Age Est: 6 year old

Teddy was turned into the animal shelter with a very painful eye injury. When his owners did not come to claim him, he quickly found himself on the list to be euthanized. Thank goodness the shelter is very good at reaching out to rescues like Lovebugs, to help dogs get out and get the medical care they so desperately need. While we are sad that we were unable to save Teddys eye, we are beyond thrilled that we were able to save his life. Teddy is a 6 year old, 7 pound, Shih Tzu mix with spunk and spirit. Now that Teddys eye injury is no longer causing him pain, he is a happy guy who loves the company of humans and other pooches alike and has a never ending wag in his tail. Teddy loves to get out for his daily walks and make new friends around the neighborhood. The ideal home for Teddy would be with someone who is looking for a devoted companion that will follow them to the ends of the earth.

Alfie found himself checked into the local animal shelter hopeful that his owners would come looking for him and take him back home. Although his original family did not come looking for Alfie, Lovebugs rescue was looking out for this little guy and he is now safe and sound and patiently waiting for his FOREVER family. Alfie is a 5 year old, 9 pound, Terri Poo with a charming and outgoing personality. He has a happy go lucky outlook on life and loves just about everyone he meets. The ideal home for Alfie would be with a family that wants to add a devoted and loving companion to their home and having another easy-going pooch for Alfie to hang out with would be awesome. We promise if you open your heart to our pal Alfie, he will repay you in kisses and tail wags for the rest of his life.

Meet Jersey! They do not make puppies much sweeter than Jersey. She loves to snuggle and give kisses. Jersey is a little on the shy side with new people, but once she gets to know you she will melt your heart. Jersey loves to play with toys and tennis balls and is great with other dogs. She would probably do well living with another well socialized dog to help build her confidence. Jersey is house trained and sleeps through the night. Jersey is comfortable in the house and yard, and is slowly learning that the rest of the world can be safe, too. She has made great strides in s short amount of time, and will likely be a happy go lucky companion for all your adventures in no time.

Name: Lola Bubbles
Breed: Lhasa Apso
Gender: Female
Age Est: 8 years
Weight: 12 lbs
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.

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 a family looking for a gorgeous gal. Winnies coat was cut back short at the shelter, but is sure to grow in thick and soft.

Chauncey was found as a stray and would love to be someones sweet little lap dog. He walks great on leash and is both house and crate trained.

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. When she is not practicing her runway walk or getting her make up done, Tira enjoys napping in the sun and snuggling on the sofa. If you are looking for a true pocket princess to snuggle up to, Tira just might be your gal!

Buddy lost his home after his owner passed away in his presence. Sadly, there were no provisions made for Buddy in his owners absence.

Name: Tiffi
Breed: Poodle

Age Est: 5 1/2 years

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 has 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 is perfect person is out there somewhere. Please consider being Tiffi is hero and give her the comfort of knowing she has a special someone she can count on to love and cherish her.

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.

Name: Goldilocks
Breed: Shih tzu

Age Est: 9 years

Name: Lulu
Breed: Shih Tzu
Gender: Female
Age Est: 5 years
Weight: 20 lbs
Lulu lost her home because her family could no longer care for her. She is a sweet natured girl on the calm side and would enjoy living the life of leisure with her new family. She gets along great with other dogs and does well with children. Lulu has lost the vision in her left eye, due to a cataract.

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: Bree
Breed: Shepherd mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 1 year
Weight: 50 lbs
