Name: Spice Latte
Breed: Jack Russell mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 8 weeks
Weight: 4 lbs
The fabulous Latte brothers, found out the hard way that puppies were not welcome at the local coffee house and ended up in the animal shelter. Thankfully our friends at the shelter were watching out for them and asked Lovebugs if they would help these 5 cuties find their forever homes. Chai, Vanilla, Skinny, Caramel and Spice Latte, are 8 week old Jack Russell Terrier brothers in search of the perfect place to spend the rest of their lives. Each of the pups are typical pups who enjoy playing and romping around with one another. They are sturdy little guys and are being well socialized in a home with young children so they will have an easy time transitioning when they find their new homes.

Elvira was discarded at the scary shelter along with her mom Dorothy and siblings. Her brothers and sisters have all been adopted, and now it's Elvira's turn to land her forever after. Elvira has the most adorable ears and is a very sweet natured puppy. She will mature in the 25 lb plus range when full grown, making her a great addition to a family with kids. Her puppy dog eyes will just melt your heart!

Whisper has been in a home with dogs both large and small and has had some kiddos to play with as well. She is a well-rounded sweetie pie who will be a fabulous lifelong companion to a very special family.

Grizz Lee Bear was discarded at the Riverside shelter without an owner in sight. This fuzzy bear walks great on leash, is crate trained and is a well mannered house guest. He would do great with a quiet family who would enjoy taking Grizz on outings and snuggling on the couch. Grizz is on the shy side, so a low key household would be best for him.

Name: Bindi

Bindi is adorably soft and snuggly and has a fun, playful spirit. She's going to make a great addition for a family looking for a fun loving gal!

Sweet Abbey was discarded at the shelter without an owner in sight. She lived her life somewhere before, but we have no idea how she got lost along the way and ended up in the scary shelter. Thankfully, Lovebugs scooped Abbey to safety and she now can live out the rest of her life with a family who will love on their sweet baby. Abbey is very mellow and just a great little lap dog. She has a lot of life and love to give her special someone. Could that be you?

We found this little heart throb sitting in the animal shelter without an owner in sight. This little guy walks well on leash, is house trained and has easily adjusted to the other dogs in his foster home. When Ricky is not acting silly and playful, you can find him following his foster mommy's every move. We think Ricky is a well rounded, sweetheart of a little man who will be a wonderful companion to someone very special.

Drew came to our rescue from a family that was no longer able to take care of him. We are happy to have Drew as one of our Lovebugs so we can help him on his journey to his forever home.

Scruffy gets along great with other dogs and will make a great little scruff ball to a lucky family!

This sweetie pie is smart as a whip, adorable as all get out, covered in a coat of delicious curls, AND she has a heart of gold. Cookie can be fearful of children and men. Her ideal home would be with a lady who is home most of the time and wants a smart, sweet companion to keep her company.

With a belly full of babies, Sandy, was on a road trip of a lifetime, down the California coast searching for a sleepy sea-side town to have her pups and raise them in the sun. Unfortunately, she took a bit of a detour and ended up at the animal shelter. Lucky for Sandy, our friends at the shelter let us know she needed our help to find a safe place to unload her coastal cuties and when she finally did, she named them for all the places she had visited on her journey. Malibu, Redondo, Newport, Laguna and Dana, have all found their forever homes and now it is time for Sandy to trot off into the sunset with a wonderful family of her very own. Sandy is very friendly with everyone she meets and always has a well stocked supply of tail wags and kisses. Sandy is both crate and potty trained in her foster home and gets along well with her foster brothers and sisters. She still has a little mommy instinct left and will carry her stuffed toys around like a baby all around the house and out into the yard. This good natured scruff muffin is going to be an amazing companion to a very special family.

Juno spent most of her life tied to a BBQ on a balcony, no matter the weather. We are very thankful that the owners agreed to relinquish Juno to one of our volunteers so we can start the journey toward finding a new home. Juno is a purebred American Eskimo. She is very smart and has mastered all of her basic commands including sit and shake. Juno is friendly with other dogs, cats and we think she will be good with kiddos too. Her ideal family would be one who likes to include their furry family members in their daily activities. Juno is one special pooch and is sure to make an amazing addition to a lucky family!

Sweet Elsa was found wandering lost and alone and near starving. We are so thankful someone spotted her and took her to a safe place while she begged for a rescue to help her. One look at her beautiful blue eyes and we were determined to help Elsa find a loving home where she will never have to worry about her next meal again. With nutritious meals she can count on, Elsa is already gaining weight and should fill out to a healthy, 55-60 pounds. We do not know why but someone shaved her beautiful coat before she was found but it is sure come back gorgeous, lush and warm just in time for winter. Elsa is very sweet and gentle with other dogs and kiddos too. She absolutely loves toys and can be found trotting around her foster home with her favorite tennis ball in her mouth hoping to entice someone to engage her in a game of fetch. The ideal home for Elsa would be in an active household that understands the need to keep her both mentally and physically engaged. She would make an excellent jogging or hiking buddy and another pooch to hang out with is a plus as well. Elsa is an amazing girl and is sure to be a great addition to a very lucky family.

Caroline will be an amazing devoted companion to someone very special.

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 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.

Meet Georgie, our newest (and oldest) Lovebug. Georgie is about 10 years old, but still has a lot of love to give a special someone. This little guy weighs just 4 lbs and could stand to gain a few ounces. He's going to make a great little lap warmer for the true Chihuahua lover.

Every year after the July 4th holiday, our local animal shelters fill up with family pets that are fearful of the loud noises and flee their homes. When this happens, the shelters have no other alternative but to euthanize dogs that have been there a while to make room for the large number of new dogs arriving. Benny was just hours away from being euthanized for this very reason when Lovebugs Rescue stepped up to give him a second chance at having a loving forever family. Benny is very outgoing and playful with other dogs but also enjoys snuggle time with his human pack members as well. Benny walks well on leash and is learning his new potty routine very easily. We promise that if you give Benny the new home he deserves so much, he will reward you with an endless supply of tail wags and kisses!
