Charlie Brown

Name:

Charlie Brown

Breed:

Spaniel

Gender:

Male

Weight:

22 lbs

Age:

3 years

Charlie was turned into the South LA City shelter with some nerve damage on his front left leg. After consulting with an orthopedic and our primary vet, it was determined that the leg should be amputated for Charlie since he didn’t have full use of the leg. Charlie had his surgery on 1/15 and is doing great. He’s a very sweet and submissive boy who is pretty shy, but he’s really coming out of his shell in his foster home. Treats go a long way with him too! Charlie is a 3 year old, 22 lb Spaniel mix with a handsome medium coat. He will do best in a home on the lower key side. He is dog and cat friendly and another animal in his home is a plus, but not a must. PLEASE NOTE, his photo was taken before his leg amputation surgery.

Chesapeake

Name:

Chesapeake

Breed:

Dachshund

Gender:

Male

Weight:

22 lbs

Age:

7 years

Chesapeake was surrendered to the shelter by his former owner. He caught the eye of one of our fosters who loves the silver sweeties, and she scooped him to safety. Chesapeake immediately made himself at home and integrated himself in the day to day life with the other dogs. He is well mannered around the house and pretty low key. He’s not a fan of kitty cats however. Chesapeake loves to give kisses and is pretty social with new people he meets. He’s super food motivated and will happily take chicken or cheese as a special treat. We are guessing he’s a Dachshund/Chihuahua mix (Chiweenie) around 7 years old and weighs 22 lb. He’s going to make a wonderful addition for a family looking for a salt and pepper sweetie. Could that be you?

Bodhi

Name:

Bodhi

Breed:

Boxer

Gender:

Male

Weight:

67 lbs

Age:

1 year

This handsome redhead was rescued from the San Bernardino City Shelter. We have no idea who gave up on this boy, but he’s a Lovebug now! Bodhi is a 67 lb tall and lean boy. We think he looks like a Coonhound/Boxer/Lab combo with his good looks. He is a very sweet natured dog who has a goofy playful side. He’s also equally smart and has picked up some basic commands such as sit and stay quickly. Bodhi is dog (big and small), people and kiddo friendly. He’s not picky who he spends his time with, he’s instantly BFF material. Bodhi would make an excellent hiking or adventure partner. When the day is over, he’s all about netflix and chill in the home while he works on his benabone or smart toys. If you’re looking for a fun companion, Bodhi just might be your guy!

Brody

Name:

Brody

Breed:

Chihuahua

Gender:

Male

Weight:

12 lbs

Age:

9 months

ADOPTION PENDING: Brody was rescued from the Apple Valley shelter literally on the day he was scheduled for euthanasia. I mean, how could you not love his two big antenna ears?! Brody is a 9 month old, 12 lb puppy, guessing mixed with Chihuahua/Terrier/Dachshund. He’s got a red coat with just a little bit of scruff in all the right places.

Brody is super sweet and loving. He has a playful spirit and is absolutely hilarious when he plays with other dogs and his feline foster brother. Brody is food motivated and very responsive to commands. He’s already mastered sit and will whine at the door when he needs to go potty.

Brody enjoys sleeping in his crate in the evenings and is fine being left alone for short periods of time. He is a great walking companion, and enjoys getting outside and doing all the sniffs. Brody is going to make a great companion for a family looking for a little redhead to join their pack.

Oliver

Name:

Oliver

Breed:

Shih Tzu

Gender:

Male

Weight:

16 lbs

Age:

1 year

Oliver was turned into the Riverside shelter as a stray the day after Christmas. He was dirty and matted and clearly lived a life of neglect. Despite this, Oliver is the sweetest most kissy boy ever! Oliver is a 1 year old, 16 lb Shih Tzu mix with that timeless black and white pattern. He gets along great with new people he meets and he loves other dogs. Oliver is well mannered around the home, is house trained and walks well on leash. He will need regular upkeep and grooming as his coat grows back in. He’s going to make a wonderful addition to his forever family. Could that be you?

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?

Tony

Name:

Tony

Breed:

Terrier

Gender:

Male

Weight:

12 lbs

Age:

1 year

PENDING ADOPTION, TAKING BACK UP APPS ONLY: Tony is a sweet natured 1 year old 12 lbs terrier with a wispy coat. He gets along with new people he meets and other dogs. Tony is well mannered in the home and loves the company of his foster fur brother. He has a playful spirit and enjoys chewing on his toys and bones. He would benefit from just a little confidence building. We think Tony would really enjoy having another little pooch to pal around with in his new home. A home on the low key side would be best as well and someone who is home a little more often than not.

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.

January

Name:

January

Breed:

Terrier

Gender:

Female

Weight:

9 lbs

Age:

1 year

Sweet little 9 pound 1 year old January is the perfect tiny Lovebug. She’s got gorgeous green eyes and statement ears – her little body looks just like a fox from the back. This little terrier mix is so curious about the world and can’t wait to explore it more once she’s recovered from her spay and can go on longer walks. She’s done well with all people and dogs she’s met so far, which is amazing considering everything she’s been through in a short time. She’s eager to play with her foster sister but will also settle down in her crate and sleep once she knows it’s time. It’s heartbreaking to think someone left January behind because she quickly trusts her humans and gives a gentle kiss to show you her appreciation – she is so ready to find the loving family she deserves!

Tito

Dachshund

Gender:

Male

Weight:

20 lbs

Age:

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 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.

Flash is a super shy boy initially, but he’s very loving and full of kisses once he knows you. He loves other dogs and would benefit from having another pooch in his home to pal around with. An ideal home for Flash would be one on the quiet side without a lot of coming and going, and a home that has a secure outdoor spot he can go potty.
