Meet Lizzie! This beautiful girl came to us after she found herself at the Mahoning County Dog Pound. Lizzie is about 5 to 6-months-old and was turned in as a stray. We believe she is mostly German Shepherd, but we don't think she is purebred. The listed breeds of our rescued dogs are our best guesses, seconded by our veterinarian.

Lizzie is a very high-energy girl who is looking for an active home. She would benefit from a fenced-in yard where she could have a safe place to run and play. Lizzie is doing well with her crate, leash, and house-training and will require a patient adopter to continue her training. Lizzie is being fostered with other dogs, cats, and a toddler and has done well with everyone so far. She has displayed some food guarding tendencies (around other dogs, not people), and her foster mom is working with her on this. She is underweight and this could be the cause of her guarding.

In order to adopt Lizzie, we require that you are at least 21-years-old and own your home. Unfortunately, we are not able to adopt large-breed dogs to renters as we have seen too many occurrences of dogs outgrowing weight limits, families moving to new homes that do not allow large dogs, and landlords changing their rental policies. Any current pets must be spayed/neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations and heartworm prevention - we do conduct a vet records check to verify this. 

Lizzie's adoption fee is $350 to cover the cost of her care and vetting, which includes her spay surgery, heartworm test, microchip, Rabies vaccination, DHLPP vaccination, Bordatella vaccination, fecal test, Drontal dewormer, monthly Revolution for flea/tick/heartworm prevention, and a nail trim. Email today - Lizzie won't be with us long!


About Little Love Bugs Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Love Bugs Rescue was founded by a group of friends with a commitment to saving the lives of animals within Northeastern Ohio. Little Love Bugs Rescue is a private, non-profit, animal rescue. We are currently in the process of filing for our 501c3 tax-exempt status. Little Love Bugs Rescue is run out of the homes of volunteers. We do not have a shelter. All of our rescued animals are in foster homes being loved, nurtured, and evaluated by volunteers. If you would like to visit any of our adoptable dogs or cats, please email us and we can set up a time to meet after your adoption application has been approved.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting one of our rescued pets, please email us at All potential adopters must fill out an adoption application. Once your application is completed, please be patient. The application is processed by one of our volunteers who will email you back within a day to confirm that we received your application. The volunteer will then check with your veterinarian to make sure that all of your pets are/were up-to-date on their vaccines, spayed/neutered, and on heartworm prevention. The volunteer will call you to talk with you more about the pet that you are interested in adopting, and to make sure that you are a good fit. After everything checks out, we can set up a meet and greet with the dog or cat you are interested in adopting. Please only apply to adopt one of our rescued pets if you are willing and able to make a lifetime commitment to a pet. We give the highest quality of care to all of our fosters, and we have adoption requirements in place to make sure that all of our dogs and cats go to loving homes. We work very closely to match you with the right new family member. All dogs and cats are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Adoption fees are non-refundable. We require that you are at least 21-years-old and that you live in Ohio, Pennsylvania, or Michigan to adopt one of our rescued pets. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
