Name: Gwen Stefani
Breed: Terrier mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 12 weeks
Weight: 4 lbs
Gwen has been in rehearsal everyday for the last two months and is now ready to climb to the top of the charts with her new family. Gwen is a petite adorably sweet puppy. She has the most adorable freckles on her front two legs. Gwen was born in the safety of a foster home and has been well socialized since a small puppy. Her mommy, Megan White, is a scruffy terrier. We expect Gwen to stay small when full grown, probably will be about 8 lbs. Gwen is ready to release her next single and will sing it just for her very special new family. Could that be you?

Carrie Ingalls came to us all the way from Walnut Grove, Minnesota in a covered wagon. This little gal has decided to leave pioneer life behind her in search of a forever home. Carrie has been enjoying the sunshine and beach weather here in California. Whether frolicking in the garden with her foster mommy, or snuggling in someones lap for nap time, Carrie is sure to make a loving forever companion. Because Carrie is very tiny, she will do best in a home with no young children.

Name: Carrie Ingalls
Breed: Pom-terrier mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 12 weeks
Weight: 3 1/2 lbs


Name: Ninko
Breed: Cockapoo mix

Tanner, Ninko, and Littlefoot were born in the shelter but they quickly left shelter life behind them and became Lovebugs! Each is cuter than the next! They love to play and socialize and give lots of cuddles. This group of fluff balls are in a foster home with both big and small doggies, and kitty cats too! They love everyone they meet. We are now accepting applications on these cuties.

This little terrier mommy, Mitzy, was dropped off at the shelter and gave birth to three adorable puppies, Tanner, Ninko, and Littlefoot. Mama Mitzy is as sweet and obedient as they come. With good looks and smarts that Terriers normally have, Mitzy is also everyones new best friend! She gets along with cats, dogs (big or small), is potty trained, friendly with new people, you name it! just an adorable gal that will fit into any family situation.

Name: Mitzy
Breed: Terrier mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 1 year
Weight: 7 lbs


Name: Lola Bubbles
Breed: Lhasa Apso mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 7 years
Weight: 15 lbs
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.

We rescued Ginger from the shelter way back in 2010 and found her a wonderful home with a lovely lady who loved her very much. Ginger's owner has sadly passed away and she is once again in need of a forever home. Ginger is a Shih-Tzu with a sweet, shy, personality. Although she is reserved with new people, she quickly warms up and is an affectionate, silly girl who will follow you to the ends of the earth. Ginger does well with both canine and feline friends and will tend to take a more submissive roll with them. Her favorite pass time is opening/delivering the mail and cruising the neighborhood on her daily walks. The ideal home for Ginger would be on the quiet side and with someone who will have a little patience with her as she adjusts to her new life.

Name: Ginger
Breed: Shih Tzu
Gender: Female
Age Est: 6 years
Weight: 14 lbs


Name: Charlie
Breed: Yorki-poo
Gender: Male
Age Est: 1 1/2 years
Weight: 12 lbs
This charming little fellow ended up in the shelter with a terrible skin rash that his family did not bother to treat. When the shelter reached out to us for help, of course we rushed over to rescue Charlie and get him to the vet for the simple treatment he needed to recover. Charlie has an outgoing and playful spirit. He does very well with other dogs, loves people of all ages and has excellent leash manners. The ideal home for Charlie would be with a family looking for a playful pooch to include in their daily activities. We know this once discarded dog will be a loyal and loving companion to someone very special.

Manhattan was one of our mommy dogs and was discarded at the shelter with her 2 newborn pups who have since been adopted. Manhattan is a gorgeous min pin mix with merle markings. She is very docile and is another Lovebug that is just a perfect little houseguest. Manhattan doesn't ask for much, she gets along great with the other dogs and is very content being a couch potato with the ones she loves. Manhattan is going to make a great family addition to a quiet family, looking for a lovable lap warmer.

Name: Manhattan
Breed: Min Pin
Gender: Female
Age Est: 3 years
Weight: 7 lbs


Name: Georgie
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Male
Age Est: 10 years
Weight: 4 lbs 1 ounce
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.

Morgan is a sweet boy and gets along great with other dogs. He is house-trained and walks great on leash. Morgan would do best in a home with no young children.

Name: Morgan
Breed: Lhasa-poo
Gender: Male
Age Est: 6 years
Weight: 20 lbs


Name: Benny
Breed: Jack Russell mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 3 years
Weight: 10 lbs
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!

Tiny girl seeks love and a warm lap. Could it be yours?? Velvet is a 4 year old, 3 pound, purebred Chihuahua with a sweet disposition and lots of love to share. We have no idea how this itty-bitty sweetie ended up in the shelter but we are certainly glad we found her and are able to help guide her on her journey to her forever home. Velvet is a true social butterfly and loves meeting new people. This pint sized princess will run straight for the closest pair of legs she can find and beg to be picked up and snuggled. Velvet gets along well with other dogs, both big and small, has quickly mastered her new potty routine and gives some of the best kisses west of the Mississippi. The ideal home for Velvet would be with someone looking for a pretty girl to spoil and pamper with plenty of lap time in front of the TV.

Name: Velvet
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Female
Age Est: 4 years
Weight: 3 lbs


Name: Sunshine
Breed: Basset Hound
Gender: Female
Age Est: 3 years
Weight: 50 lbs
ADULT ONLY HOME AND NO OTHER DOGS IN HOME REQUIRED: We have no doubt you will agree, that Sunshine one of the best looking Basset Hounds around town. With her long ears, droopy eyes and irresistible freckles, we whisked this beauty to safety in the nick of time. Sunshine is in a home with other dogs, has mastered both beginning and intermediate obedience training, walks great on leash, is crate trained and can be a lovable goofy basset. Sunshine however has shown some resource guarding towards both other dogs and humans. Because of this we will require an experienced adopter familiar with behavior modification training to handle her. We would prefer a local adopter to Orange County, CA with no other dogs and no children in the house. We would love to find a dedicated forever home for Sunshine that is willing to continue working with this Basset beauty and fall in love with her just like we did!

Fabiana Cortez was found roaming as a stray just shortly after she gave birth to 6 kittens in the cold wet brush. Shortly after, the entire family was scooped to safety with Lovebugs Rescue. Fabiana has been a devoted mama to her feline family, but now it's her turn to find a family to call her very own. Fabiana has a sweet nature, which makes us believe she was once someones pet who got lost. Fabiana is a gorgeous tuxedo gal with the most enchanting green eyes. If you would like to meet Fabiana, please complete our adoption application. She is being fostered in Irvine.

Name: Fabiana Cortez
Breed: Domestic Short hair
Gender: Female
Age Est: 1 year
Weight: 10 lbs
