Bernardo's Story...
Please read entire bio before contacting rescue. Courtesy listing! Please contact Janet Cook of the Angel’s Heart Dog Rescue at: and not the rescue connected to this page! The preferred method of contact is by way of e-mail.

SEE VIDEO ALSO ON THIS PAGE! (Please note videos are taken very early in the dog’s rescue – the written bio is the most updated depiction of the dog.)

Bernardo is a 13 pound Chihuahua/Beagle mix, also known as a “Cheagle” with the most beautiful unique green eyes that have aquamarine colored starbursts. He is mostly white, with some tan markings. Bernardo was skinny coming straight from the shelter so he should be more like 15 lbs. proper weight. He will gain those two pounds as he eats regular, healthy meals while in foster care. The shelter marked that Bernardo was age three (this was not vet confirmed, staff at shelter basically make their best guess) however, our vet confirmed that he is much younger – closer to one and a half, and no more than age two.

Bernardo has the most endearing face with pink features and white eyelashes. He is a very sweet, quiet dog, almost cat like. He even greets everyone by rubbing his body around the ankles just like a cat would do. Bernardo does not bark much; in fact, I have only heard him bark once. He is currently fostered with two cats and a Chiweenie and gets along with all. He mostly ignores the cats but plays with other dogs, chasing, wrestling or playing tug of war. His favorite time though is cuddling with his humans. He is a great balance of being playful and cuddle time.

Bernardo has not had any potty accidents and he is currently learning the doggy door. Potty reinforcement is always encouraged in any new environment. He is crate-trained and sleeps in a wire crate throughout the night but is trustworthy enough to sleep on a pet bed or on a human bed. Bernardo is such a sweet boy that we believe that he would get along with anyone, even children, though we have not tested this aspect. He loves walks and rides well in the car. Bernardo is a sweet, very cute, loving dog who just wants to find his forever family. He has a very easy going personality!

Bernardo is neutered, de-wormed, vaccinated including rabies, and micro-chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bernardo, a Bellflower Chihuahua/Beagle dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Beagle for sale in Bellflower, or seeking a Chihuahua/Beagle dog from a breeder in Bellflower.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bellflower already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bellflower breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chihuahua/Beagle breeders who help with Chihuahua/Beagle rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bellflower paves the way for another one to be saved.
