Name: Bart
Breed: Border Collie mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 8 weeks
Weight: 10 lbs
These quirky characters thought they were headed to a middle american town called Springfield, when they took a terrible detour and ended up in the shelter. With a life already full of dysfunction, these three needed an exit strategy fast. And thankfully, Lovebugs Rescue was just that! Meet the Simpsons...Maggie, Bart & Lisa. These trouble makers are still making "trouble" in their foster home, but they are also equally sweet and cuddly. Mom is a 50 lb Shepherd mix and we are guessing daddy was a Border Collie mix.

This little morsel of love was patiently waiting in the shelter for someone to whisk her away to a new life. Mochi was filthy and her coat badly matted but we knew there was a true beauty underneath her dreadlocks. Mochi is silly and affectionate, loves to snuggle and gets super excited about getting out for her daily walks. Mochi enjoys the company of other dogs and humans alike. She is both crate and potty trained in her foster home which will help when transitioning to her forever home. The ideal home for Mochi would be with a true Shih-Tzu lover who understands the grooming needs of her beautiful coat.

Donnie is crate trained and learning to potty outside. Donnie is great with other dogs and people alike.

Sweet Sunday was turned into the shelter with her twin sister. When we saw her sister getting adopted and a sad Sunday watching her go, we did not have the heart to leave her behind. This gal has it all, blonde bombshell good looks and a loving personality to match. Sunday takes a submissive roll with other dogs and gets intimidated by dogs that are dominant. She loves her daily walks, is a master in the art of snuggling and is crate trained. The ideal home for Sunday would be with someone who likes to spend lots of time with their fur kids and wants a life-long companion to love unconditionally.

She is now on a weight loss plan in her foster home and getting all the TLC she needs and deserves. There couldn't be a nicer dog than Diana. She gets along great with other dogs, big or small.

Name: Rue
Breed: Maltipoo

Weight: 9 lbs


Name: Mitzi
Breed: Poodle
Gender: Female
Age Est: 8 years
Weight: 11 lbs
A badly neglected and terrified Mitzi, ran from humans and hid whenever possible during her time on the streets. One day Mitzi trusted someone enough to let them catch her, then off she went to Animal Control, where she would spend 10 long days and nights frightened and confused as to why she ended up in doggie jail. Now that she has had a much needed spa day, she is as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside. Mitzi is on the timid side and her ideal home would be a calm environment with lots of lap time. She is great with other dogs and will do well in a home with or without another canine friend. Mitzi is quickly learning to trust and is discovering that most humans are pretty great and take wonderful care of their fur kids. We are confident that we will find Mitzi a human companion who will pamper her like the princess she was always meant to be.

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.

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.

Quincy is an adorable long coat Chihuahua that was rescued from the shelter. Quincy was thought to have a heart murmur, but it turns out he had a Patent Ductus Arteriosis (PDA) which is a very correctable heart defect. Thanks to Lovebugs Rescue, Quincy had his heart surgery in early August and it was a success! Now Quincy is on the search for his forever home.

When we got her, she was heavily flea infested and scratching at various hot spots. We have begun treatment with our vet and she will be spayed, microchipped, and get all her vaccines. Coco had a rough start in life, but that is all behind her now. Coco will learn what it's like to be an indoor dog and enjoy all the perks of being a lovebug!

Sea Treasure is sailing the 7 seas in search of her forever home. Sea Treasure loves to get out and sniff around the neighborhood on her daily walks and is a champion at snuggling on the couch. We think Sea Treasure would do best as an only dog and will do well with older kiddos too. She is both crate and potty trained in her foster home making for a smooth transition in her forever home. We promise if you open your heart and home to our little Treasure, she will be an amazing constant companion.

Breed: Papillion mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 2 years
Weight: 15 lbs
Downton Abbey has been a wonderful place for Cora to raise her aristocratic clan but it is now time for them to leave the Yorkshire countryside and find estates of their own so Cora can rest and relax. This lovely lady is reserved and calm and wants nothing more than to be cuddled and pampered by the ones she loves. Cora has mastered the potty routine in her foster home and gets along well with other dogs. We have no doubt that this incredible beauty will make an amazing canine companion to someone very special.

Bowser was turned into the shelter as a stray and sadly, this boy suffered an injury a while back with his front right leg, that was never attended to medically. Our vet determined that it's not causing Bowser any pain and he is getting some use out of it, so they don't foresee it needing further medical attention at this point. Bowser is crate trained, gets along great with everyone he meets, people and other dogs. He is an adorable scruffy terrier mix, and we are so happy we can provide him with the best care possible while he waits for his forever family to fall in love with him!

Name: Bowser
Breed: Border Terrier/Wheaten mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 2 years
Weight: 24 lbs


Name: Sara Lee
Breed: Jack Russell mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 2 years
Weight: 8 lbs
Sara Lee was hanging 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, and gets along great with other dogs. She is a little tentative when meeting new people, but we expect that to subside over time as she gets more socialization in her foster home.

We found this little heart throb sitting in the animal shelter without an owner in sight. Ricky is a 6 year old, 4 pound, Chihuahua with personality plus! This little guy walks well on leash, is house trained and has easily adjusted to warming laps in his foster home. Ricky is tentative with meeting new people or with any sudden quick movements. He will require a calm household with an owner that is understanding that he's a sensitive little guy. Ricky is sure to reward by being a loyal companion.

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.

She is going to make a great addition to a family looking for a sweet lady to add to their family!
