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.

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!

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!

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.
