Name: Benny
Breed: Dachshund Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 7 Weeks
Weight: 2 lbs
These tiny tots sadly lost their mama shortly after they were born. She passed away from eclampsia, which is caused from low calcium levels. Thankfully the owners contacted Lovebugs Rescue right away so we could put them with our bottle feeder. These pups are an adorable Dachshund mix, are very sweet natured and are all BOYS! Benny, Buster, Blueberry, Marvin, Louis and Zeus just turned 6 weeks old and are now available for pre-adoption. We are guessing they should mature in the 12 - 15 lb range when full grown.

Name: Bailey
Breed: Bichon Frise
Gender: Male
Age: 6 years
Weight: 23 lbs
Bailey is a handsome Bichon that is looking for a home to call his own. Bailey enjoys going for car rides and daily walks. He is on the low key side, but has a playful spirit and enjoys playing ball. Bailey gets along well with other dogs and doesn't mind kitty cats either. He is both crate and house trained. Bailey is currently on a low calorie diet so that he may loose a few extra pounds, and we'd love to find a family committed to keeping him on this healthy lifestyle.

They don't come any cuter than this! Mrs. Nesbit is a spunky, fun loving pooch that will make the perfect co-pilot to take around town. She even sports her own mohawk, which makes her even more adorable! Mrs. Nesbit gets along great with both dogs and cats and loves everyone she meets. She loves lounging in a sun spot in the home, or frolicking in the garden with her foster family. Mrs. Nesbit is sure to win your heart over the second you meet her.

Name: Mrs. Nesbit
Breed: Terrier Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 1 1/2 years
Weight: 4 lbs


Name: Minty
Breed: Chihuahua Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 2 years
Weight: 8 lbs
Everyone who meets Minty falls head over heels with her. BUT she is still looking for her forever home. Why? Perhaps because Minty is a Chihuahua mix. We know they are not hard to come by. However, dogs with Minty's disposition aren't always easy to find. Minty loves everyone she meets - kids, adults, other dogs, cats, you name it! Minty is a wonderful co-pilot; one you can take around town and show off. She walks great on leash and is well mannered wherever she goes. Because Minty is so social, we'd love to see her land a home with another pooch to pal around with. Minty has the most soulful eyes and always has a smile on her face.

Lizzy was surrendered to Lovebugs Rescue by her former owners after she had an accidental litter with the dog next door. Lizzy has been an awesome mommy to her 8 puppies, but soon it will be time for her to find a home of her own. Lizzy was very comfortable with her former family, but is shy with new people. Lizzy is quick to warm up, especially if you have a piece of chicken to offer! Lizzy has a lot of potential, but will require a family who is patient and willing to help build her confidence. We have no doubt Lizzy will be a loving, loyal gal to her forever someone!

Name: Lizzy
Breed: Cairn Terrier Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 1 year
Weight: 10 lbs


Name: Bebe
Breed: Chihuahua Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 5 years
Weight: 5 lbs
Darling Bebe was rescued from the Orange Shelter by one of our foster homes. Bebe came to us with a bad skin and ear infection, which she is being treated for (hence the greasy ears in this photo). Bebe is a 5 year old, 5 lb Chihuahua mix who loves to give kisses. She is currently learning the ropes in her foster home. Bebe would prefer to be the only dog in the home.

Mira is a 1 year old, 12 pound, Cairn Terrier Mix who ended up in the animal shelter with a belly full of babies. Now that she has wrapped up mommy duties and all of her pups have found their forever homes, it is time for Mira to start the journey to find a new family of her very own. Mira is timid when meeting new people and will need a calm home with patient humans to help her feel comfortable at her own pace. She has blossomed in her foster home and has become the ever-present shadow and joyful spirit, following her foster mommy’s every move. Mira is still working on building confidence when walking on leash. She did not likely have much socialization before she became a Lovebug so we have gone very slowly to help her feel comfortable with each new thing she experiences. Once she settles in, Mira is a pretty easy going girl who enjoys snuggles, exploring in the yard and an occasional case of the “zoomies” running around and acting silly. She is potty trained in her foster home making that part of her transition a breeze.

Name: Mira
Breed: Cairn Terrier Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 1 year

Name: Wesley
Breed: Jack Russell Terrier Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 5 years
Weight: 7 lbs
This handsome scruffy boy found himself in the shelter without an owner in sight. Thankfully, Lovebugs Rescue was able to take him under our wing. Wesley is a 7 lb, 5 year old terrier mix who is sweet and is very playful with other dogs. He is both house and crate trained in his current foster home. Wesley enjoys going for walks and equally enjoys a nice long snuggle with his human.

Pippi is a tiny gal that ended up in the shelter without an owner in sight. Pippi has acclimated very well in her foster home and gets along with the family. She appears to be house trained and walks well on leash. Pippi has a gorgeous red long coat and prances around her foster home like a show dog. Pippi would prefer to be the only dog in the home.

Name: Pippi
Breed: Chihuahua Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 4 years
Weight: 5 lbs


Name: Wally
Breed: Poodle Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 5 years
Weight: 35 lbs
Wally was surrendered to Lovebugs Rescue when his former family could no longer keep him. Wally came to us very matted, and now he has a fresh short cut so his soft curly locks can grow back in. Wally is good with other dogs and new people he meets. He walks well on leash and is crate trained.

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!

Name: Winkie
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 3 years
Weight: 7 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.

FOREVER LOVEBUG: This handsome gent was sadly surrendered to the shelter by his former owner. We are guessing they could not afford his medical care. Tobi is a 13 year old 9 lb Shih Tzu mix with the most soulful eyes. We can only imagine the confusion this poor boy must have felt losing the only family he ever knew. Tobi is in mid stages of kidney failure and also has some spinal compression. Tobi is in a forever foster with another dog to pal around with. He will be pampered like a prince for the time he has left with us.

Name: Tobi
Breed: Shih Tzu Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 13 years
Weight: 9 lbs


Name: Tiffi
Breed: Poodle
Gender: Female
Age: 7 years
Weight: 12 lbs
FOREVER LOVEBUG: 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, she is in a very special forever foster 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.

ADOPTION PENDING: Earl was found as a stray in Earlimart, CA by a good samaritan. She saw Earl wedged in a corner of a gas station between a table and a wall. He was covered in painful mats, while temperatures that day reached 110. Thankfully the lady scooped Earl up and contacted rescues. Earl is now a Lovebug and his days of abandonment are over. Earl's mats have been shaved, and his coat is starting to grow back in nicely. He does still have some skin irritation and vetting with respect to his eye, which should only be temporary. Earl is a very sweet gentle dog and gets along with new people, dogs, cats, kids - you name it. He is just so thankful to be rescued!

Name: Earl
Breed: Poodle Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 2 years
Weight: 16 lbs
