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!

Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie Mix

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 needs 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 will be having surgery at the end of March and will be 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!

Sweet Ginger came to us after living a life of neglect on the streets. She had lost most of her pretty red coat due to skin infections covering most of her body. After a few days under the watchful eye of vet staff and now tucked into a loving foster home, Ginger is well on her way to achieving her rightful place in the Super Model Hall of Fame! Ginger gets along great with other dogs and loves meeting new people. She especially loves spending time with the ones she loves.

Gender: Male
Age: 4 years
Weight: 20 lbs
Louis was surrendered to Lovebugs Rescue by his former owner. He is a gorgeous male poodle who gets along with other dogs and walks great on lead. Louis is both house and crate trained in his current foster home. He will do best in an adult only home who will continue to take him on daily walks.

This handsome young man has a new outlook on life thanks to Lovebugs Rescue. Fonzy had two very unattractive “cherry eyes” that have been surgically repaired and now his beautiful eyes can truly be the windows to his soul. Fonzy is a 5 year old, 20 pound, Tibetan Terrier mix. He likes the company of other dogs, walks well on leash and is quickly mastering the potty routine in his foster home. Fonzy can be on the timid side when meeting new people so he will do best in a low-key home and a bit of patience.

This dainty darling is about as sweet as they come! Lily loves everyone she meets, and gets along great with other dogs. Lily is a low key gal and happy just laying in her sun spot, or going for her daily walks. Lily will make a great addition for a family looking for a travel sized pooch you can take just about anywhere.

This handsome boy has is all! Good looks and a great personality to match. Milo loves other dogs and is a bit shy when meeting new people, but warms up quickly. He walks like a show dog on leash and is mastering the potty routine in his foster home. Milo is a 4 year old 10 lb Yorkie Maltese mix with a super soft coat. He came to us with some matting from his former family, so his coat is currently on the short side. We have no doubt this special boy is going to wiggle his way into the hearts of his forever family very soon!

Koko Bella came to us from her former family, and sadly, she was not in the best of care. Koko had severe matting as well as a secondary skin infection. We have had her groomed and she is currently on antibiotics to clear up her skin. Despite all of this, Koko Bella is a very sweet calm gal. She loves to go for walks, is crate trained and seems to be doing great with her potty routine. Koko gets along great with both dogs and cats and new people she meets.

We are not certain if Kidd is a Chihuahua or a Meerkat, but either way, he is adorable! Kidd came to us after living a life of neglect and being kept outdoors. As a result, he was frightened and under socialized. We scooped him to safety and figured we had a long road ahead of us. But Kidd surprised us! This boy really wants to trust and love. After just a short time, Kidd is starting to feel safe and show us his playful goofy side! Kidd has mastered his leash skills and enjoys going for daily outings with his foster mom and her two dogs. 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.

Gender: Male
Age: 1 1/2 years

Austin is a happy active boy who found himself at the shelter without an owner in sight. He is full of life and ready to please. Austin will do great with an active family who enjoys taking their dogs on regular outings. Austin gets along great with the other dogs in his foster home, and is working on his leash skills. He would do best in a home that plans to continue training with him.

This tiny tot was discarded at the shelter without an owner in sight. Stuart Little is a purebred Pomeranian weighing in at just 5 lbs. Stuart is a happy little man who gets along with everyone he meets. We'd love to find a loving home where Stuart can spend his golden years being treated as a pampered prince.

Name: Chloe
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Female
Age: 4 years
Weight: 3 1/2 lbs
This tiny tot was the best dressed gal at the shelter. But at 3 1/2 lbs, the shelter can be a scary place. Chloe quickly needed rescue when she developed an upper respiratory infection, and off we went. Chloe is now SAFE with Lovebugs Rescue and she is the sweetest dainty darling ever! We are taking care of all her medical needs and she will be available for adoption soon!

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: 7 years
Weight: 12 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.

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. Jackie Brown walks great on leash and will do wonderful in a home looking for a girl with the most soulful golden eyes.

Name: Jackie Brown
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
Gender: Female
Age: 1 1/2 years
Weight: 60 lbs
