Last Update Jun 25 2017

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

This handsome fella is on the hunt for his new home. Beau is an 9 year old, 6 lb purebred Yorkie. He is both crate and house trained and walks well on leash. Beau will make a great addition to a quiet, laid back home looking for a prince to snuggle with.

Name: Beau
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie
Gender: Male
Age: 9 years
Weight: 6 lbs


Name: Dee
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie
Gender: Female
Age: 5 years
Weight: 5 lbs
Tiny Dee is an beautiful 5 year old, 5 lb purebred Yorkie. She is very sweet natured and gets along with new people and other dogs. Dee walks like a show dog on leash, although she is still learning her potty routine in her new foster home. This gal is very easy going and is up for a snuggle on the couch anytime! Dee will make a great addition to a true Yorkie lover.

This sweet and outgoing gal is looking for someone special to spend her life with. Gizmo is a 11 year young, 12 pound, Shih-Tzu with a fun loving spirit. This gal wants nothing more than to be with the ones she loves and shower them with affection. We promise if you open your heart to Gizmo she will repay you with an endless supply of tail wags and kisses!

Name: Gizmo
Breed: Shih Tzu
Gender: Female
Age: 11 years
Weight: 12 lbs


Name: Kobi
Breed: Maltese Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 9 months
Weight: 10 lbs
Kobi found himself in the scary shelter without an owner in sight. Thankfully he is now a Lovebug! Although Kobi warmed up to his foster family within the first 24 hours, he is a bit tenative when meeting new people and dogs. We are guessing he didn't have much exposure to either at his previous home. Kobi has been joining his foster family on their daily adventures and is starting to gain confidence. Kobi is crate trained and walks well on leash. He would do best in a home on the quiet side, and one who is patient and willing to help bring him out of his shell on his time.

Pippi is a tiny gal that ended up in the shelter without an owner in sight. Pippi has acclimated very well in her foster home and gets along with the family and other dogs. 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. Pippi is about 4 years old and currently weights 4 1/2 lbs, although needs to gain at least 1 more pound.

Name: Pippi
Breed: Chihuahua Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 4 years
Weight: 4 1/2 lbs


Name: Kidd
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Male
Age: 1 1/2 years
Weight: 4 lbs
We are not certain if Kidd is a Chihuahua or a Meerkat, but either way, he is adorable! Kidd is shy when meeting new people, but once he knows you he is a goofy boy. Kidd loves playing with toys and enjoys the company of his furry foster friends. He walks great on leash and is small enough to tote around in a doggie pouch. Kidd has also mastering several training techniques such as touch. We have no doubt that Kidd is going to make a wonderful addition to a family looking for a silly boy to be their tiny shadow.

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. Wesley is a 7 lb, 5 year old Jack Russell mix who is very sweet and gets along well with other dogs. Wesley enjoys going for walks and equally enjoys a nice long snuggle with his human.

Name: Wesley
Breed: Jack Russell Terrier Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 5 years
Weight: 7 lbs


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.

CeeCee was surrendered to Lovebugs Rescue when her family could no longer keep her. She was originally adopted by her family from the Orange shelter, then a few years later they came to return her. Thankfully the OC Shelter intervention program was able to connect the family with Lovebugs Rescue so CeeCee did not have to go to the shelter a second time. CeeCee is a beautiful Rat Terrier mix with a sleek tuxedo coat. She is on the shy side, so will do best in a patient home who will continue to socialize her. We have no doubt CeeCee is going to make a very loving, loyal family member to her next family! CeeCee LOVES the company of other dogs.

Name: CeeCee
Breed: Rat Terrier Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 3 years
Weight: 12 lbs


Name: Winkie
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 3 years
Weight: 7 lbs
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!

This beautiful red head loves everyone she meets! Honey was surrendered to Lovebugs Rescue by her former owner because she has a liver shunt. The way Honey's shunt is positioned, she is not a candidate for surgery. The good news is there are medications which can help Honey live a normal life which she is tolerating well. Honey is great with other dogs and she will make a wonderful addition to a Pomeranian lover!

Name: Honey
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age: 9 months
Weight: 10 lbs


Name: Mrs. Nesbit
Breed: Terrier Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 1 year
Weight: 4 lbs
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!

MEDICAL HOLD - KNEE INJURY: 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.

Name: Bailey
Breed: Bichon Frise Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 6 years
Weight: 23 lbs


Name: Lola Bubbles
Breed: Lhasa Apso
Gender: Female
Age: 10 years
Weight: 15 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.

HOSPICE: 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 has some medical issues and will likely not be a candidate for adoption. Tobi is in mid stages of kidney failure. He also has some spinal compression, but is able to walk around just fine. Tobi is in need of a neuter and a dental, but we are not able to put him under anesthesia due to his prognosis. Kidney patients generally tend to lose their appetite and lose weight. He is on a special diet and currently eating fairly well. Tobi LOVES the company of other dogs and is very sweet natured with new people he meets.

Name: Tobi
Breed: Shih Tzu Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 13 years
Weight: 9 lbs


Name: Tiffi
Breed: Poodle
Gender: Female
Age: 7 years
Weight: 12 lbs
HOSPICE: 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 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. 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.
