Meet Lovebug the Itty Bitty Pittie

If you are looking to add a small dog with a larger than life smile and personality to your family, look NO FURTHER! Mama LoveBug is ready to come home and be your new best friend.

Meet Mama Lovebug - the cutest little bug you want in your home! Have you ever heard the saying snug as a bug in a rug? Well thats Mama Lovebug - in any situation!

We estimate Mama to be around 1.5 years old and is a Fox Terrier & Staffordshire mix. With rescue, nothing is ever for certain or guaranteed on where our dogs come from or their breeds. She is a petite princess who weighs less than 40 lbs, perfect for any lifestyle!

Whether you live in an apartment, house, or live the highway life - Mama Lovebug doesnt mind and will sit right beside you ready for an adventure. Mama has such an inviting presence and opens right up to meeting new strangers. When introduced to other dogs she shows off her personality by displaying her terrier bounce and hip bumps to let dogs know she is the Mama of the yard. Mama LoveBug prefers to roam around the yard and people watch her furry friends until ready to play. She enjoys spending time with other dogs matching the same energy level, especially those who understand her dominant play style and laid back approach to life.

Mama LoveBugs love language is definitely physical touch, specifically warm loving hugs! Getting a hug from her can make any frown turn upside down. I hope you have good time management. Her smile is so contagious and full of excitement at the possibility of you stopping to pet her, it may make you late to work! Who can say no to that face?

From what we have seen with Mama she is crate trained, potty trained and has lovely house manners. She may need gentle reminders as she transitions into a new home but she is very smart and eager to please her human companion. We love the fact that she just lights up at the sight of children! She can be excited with meeting new friends of all sizes and gives a few light tail wagging bunny hops. With encouraged training at home she will get the hang of how to navigate tiny humans in a breeze. Mama Lovebug is very gentle with receiving treats and will smother you in kisses after as a big thank you!

When Mama met our resident cat Tom she expressed a little too much interest in playing chase for him. She would do best in a home with dogs around her size or bigger, no small dogs or kitties please! Our favorite thing about this girl is how loving and trusting she is right off the bat, a true social butterfly waiting for her new family to scoop her up. We are willing to test this dog with anything you need us to in order to ensure its the perfect match for you! We can make anything happen! Just let us know.

Please email with any questions.

The stray and animal overpopulation in the Greater Houston area is one of the highest in the nation. Statistics show that there are over 1 million homeless animals in this region alone! Three Little Pitties Rescue is a nonprofit dog and cat rescue that partners with the community to make a difference. Our mission is to reduce the homeless pet population through community outreach, free spay and neuter services, and saving all breeds of dogs and cats from the streets or animal shelters that oftentimes have no choice but to euthanize animals for space. We prepare them for adoption by properly vetting and providing individualized care through our incredible behavior program that consists of socialization and leash training for all animals that enter our adoption program prior to matching them with loving families who will treasure them for the rest of their lives. They are rescue dogs and will require continued training efforts once adopted, but will be well on their way to being the best dogs that they can be!

Three Little Pitties Rescue will soon be celebrating our 5 year anniversary! Over the course of this time, we have been very fortunate for so much growth, allowing us to further connect with the community and save many lives. Through the combined efforts of all of our hardworking staff and volunteers, we have placed over 10,000 very lucky dogs and cats into amazing homes! By adopting from us, you save TWO lives! The pet you adopt, and you create an opportunity for another animal to be brought into our rescue program. Together, we can be heroes.
