Dixie

Name:

Dixie

Breed:

Chihuahua

Gender:

Female

Weight:

6 lbs

Age:

1 year

Dixie is a petite Chihuahua who had to have an emergency c-section to deliver 1 surviving puppy. She didn’t connect the dots on motherhood, so her puppy is being bottle fed and raised separately. Dixie is a little shy initially, but she warms up quickly and loves following the other small dogs around in her foster home. She is very affectionate with her people and we think she will acclimate nicely to a home who has a love for the Chihuahua breed. She couldn’t be any more darling with her big antenna ears and little white beard. She appears to be housebroken and has acclimated well in her foster home. She would love for her family to be home a little more often than not.

Lucia

Name:

Lucia

Breed:

Mastiff

Gender:

Female

Weight:

20 lbs

Age:

10 weeks

ADOPTION PENDING: Lucia and her siblings were born in the shelter, but were quickly scooped up by Lovebugs Rescue a few days later. Their mama Lola is a 100 lb Mastiff mix who is very friendly. Lucia is a curious and sweet natured puppy who loves being around her foster family and she enjoys belly rubs on her freckled belly. Lucia is proving to be super smart and has quickly mastered some basics such as default sit, fetch, recall, and is getting an A+ on her potty training. Lucia loves new people she meets and other dogs too. She is well mannered in the house and will happily entertain herself if need be. Lucia is expected to be in the 80 lb plus range when full grown. She’s absolutely darling with her jet black muzzle and long floppy ears!

Chloe

Name:

Chloe

Breed:

Chihuahua

Gender:

Female

Weight:

5 lbs

Age:

10 months

Chloe is a dainty 10 month old 5 lb Chihuahua who has the most adorable ears. She came to us very shy and has been slowly coming out of her shell. She is super sweet and loves her foster mommy. Chloe is well mannered in the home and can be left for short periods of time. She’d prefer to be close to her loved ones, and would love to be someone’s co-pilot. Chloe seems to prefer the grass outside vs. the pavement on her walks; it’s one of her funny quirks. She’s met a few small dogs her own side, but she’s more scared of them at this point. We think the best type of home for Chloe would be a one on the quiet side that is secure. She is going to continue to need some confidence building and positive experiences outside of the home. Chicken goes a long way with her! Mostly she will need someone with a lot of love to give, because she has a lot of love to give in return. Chloe is going to make a nice addition to someone who has a true love for the Chihuahua breed.

Gia

Name:

Gia

Breed:

Pit Bull Terrier

Gender:

Female

Weight:

48 lbs

Age:

1 1/2 years

Gia was an urgent save out of SEACCA within moments of her scheduling to be euthanized for space. We are so glad we were able to scoop her to safety just in time! Gia is a 1 1/2 year old, 48 lb “pocket” Pittie who is super sweet and silly. She is crate trained and loves going for walks. Gia has a medium energy level and loves to play with balls, tennis, football, soccer – she isn’t picky! And she will even bring the ball back! Gia enjoys cuddling with her humans and is very loving. She loves other dogs, but does need a slow warm up to new dogs. An ideal home for Gia would be one that is looking for a loving gal, and has some time to build her confidence up a bit. Gia is treat motivated which will help with conditional training.

Curly

Name:

Curly

Breed:

Poodle

Gender:

Male

Weight:

15 lbs

Age:

13 years

Curly was turned into the Riverside shelter as a stray in deplorable condition. His matting was so thick and dirty, we can’t imagine how uncomfortable this was for him. Curly is a senior Poodle mix, who is 13 years old and weighs 15 lbs. He is very dainty and delicate, but manages to get around just fine. He may need assistance with steps if they are in the home. It doesn’t appear that Curly can hear, but he can see and he loves everyone he meets. We can’t believe what a gentle and forgiving soul he has. All he wants to do is be with his person and follow them to the ends of the Earth. Curly gets along great with other dogs, but mostly he just wants to be with his person. Curly’s vetting has been complete which includes a much needed dental and entropion correction on his right eye. He got an A+ on his exam, his heart is strong and his bloodwork and urine looked good. The ideal home for Curly is going to be one where his family is home more often than not. He will need a safe one level environment that he can navigate through during the day. His coat will require upkeep and grooming as it grows back in and he does wear a belly band in case he can’t make it outside in time. He is looking for a soft place to land to spend his golden years. Could that be with you?

Lola

Name:

Lola

Breed:

Mastiff

Gender:

Female

Weight:

100 lbs

Age:

2 years

Lola was one of our amazing mama dogs, but now it’s her turn to find a forever family of her own. Lola is a 2 year old, 100 lb Mastiff mix with the most adorable long ears and nub tail. She is friendly with new people she meets and will happily allow being pet and handled. Lola also loves other dogs too, especially if they want to play. She’ll never pass up a good romp with another pooch! Lola has acclimated to the routine in her foster home and is well mannered and sleeps in a crate at night. She walks well on leash and is great adventure partner on longer hikes which is truly her happy place. Lola is very connected to her people and is going to make a very loyal and loving companion. Another dog she can pal around with is not a must, but a plus. Due to Lola’s size and breed, we are having a gastropexy done at the time of her spay. Lola is going to make an amazing addition to a family looking for, and experienced with a larger breed pooch.

Tito

Name:

Tito

Breed:

Dachshund

Gender:

Male

Weight:

20 lbs

Age:

4 years

Tito is a 4 year old, 20 lb Dachshund mix who we rescued from the Harbor LA City shelter after he was turned in with a leg injury. Turns out he needed an FHO surgery by our orthopedic surgeon. His surgery was a success and Tito is back in the game! Tito is a happy boy who gets along with both people and other pets. He loves other dogs and is fine with dog savvy cats and bunnies too! He has a playful spirit and a true joy for life. Tito walks well on leash, has mastered sit and is fully housebroken. He loves working on his smart toys and chewing on his bones. Tito was someone’s beloved pet at some point in time, and it makes us said to think he ended up in the shelter. He is going to make a wonderful addition for a family looking for a socialite, and someone who has a love for the Dachshund breed.

Glimmer

Name:

Glimmer

Breed:

Dachshund

Gender:

Female

Weight:

11 lbs

Age:

2 years

Glimmer came to Lovebugs Rescue after her and several other dogs were seen being dumped, with one being hit by a car and killed. Thankfully Glimmer was scooped up to safety. She is very shy initially and needs a slow warm up to new people, but her tail will be wagging once she knows her people a little better. She loves other dogs and would benefit being in a home with another pooch to pal around with. Glimmer did come to us with some cracked front teeth, which have since been removed. We don’t know what her past was like, but she’s now onto a bright new future ahead! Glimmer is a 2 year old 11 lb Dachshund/Chihuahua mix and has that adorable low rider build. An ideal home for her would be one that is on the quiet side without a lot of coming and going. Also a secure outdoor spot she can go potty.
